Literally the worst game I've ever played. Right of the bat I walked into a box that I could walk through. There's all these rooms they spent time programming, except they're all blocked off. The concept of Metro is essentially a poor remake of Fallout without free roam. The game isn't hard, except mutants don't drop any ammo. Even on the easiest difficulty you're out of ammo for any fights, or you're at max ammo. The currency is rarer than most games making buying your items difficult, and you lose any guns you buy right away when returning to the story. All in all I think the only thing this game has going for it is the graphics. When I rented the title I was looking forward to it, just to be greeted with utter disappointment. Save yourself the time and don't rent this game. Save yourself the money and forget about buying it.

I never review games but had to do this one. I did not like this game at all. For being released this year, the graphics were a few years behind outdated. Gameplay is straightforward and leaves not much for exploring or adventuring. Your Russian 'comrade' spouts random Russian nonsense all the time. Not much variety to the gun types to chose from and very little upgrading them. There's even an alien life form tie-in but no future-tech to play with! I was excited to play this game but was horribly disappointed. Sent it back after a few hours playing and it was the same thing over and over.
I equate this game to Fallout meets Deus Ex but they took none of the good things from these games. All I have to say is thank goodness for GameFly so I didn't have to pay for this.
this is game is good enough to play but it does have problems.
Cons: when your on your own you don't know where to go. theirs no way point on where it tells you to go. since theirs no way point your out in the open facing all of these mutants who just want to rip your head off. and you have to kill demons that are trying to kill you. plus you run out of ammo very quickly.
Pros: the story line is great a lot of plot twists. and a lot of things that go unexpectedly wrong. action pack, graphics are good. intense. its a little bit like fallout 3 where you can buy or sell weapons, ammo, plus the money in the game is bullets. theirs even a bit of romance too. is it worth your money to buy? maybe. depends on how you feel about this game.
