Metro 2033


$60.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Realistic social interaction. Keeps you immersed in the game - HUDless design, doesn't pause when you look at your map (by pulling it out and viewing it with your lighter...) etc... Each metro station is a different town, each with its own personality, issues.

The Cons:Allies cannot die when being attacked, do not take damage from friendly fire - makes getting through a lot of the game a frag-fest. A lot of self-referencing books / posters - don't really make sense or fit in. No Playstation 3 version.

This is pretty much Half-Life 2 meets Fallout 3 meets Stalker. Amazing combination, perfectly executed. A little heavy on the system, but you can't really fault it for that - it looks and feels the part. If you need a reason to upgrade your system in 2010 let Metro 2033 be it.
