Metro 2033 Doing Things on 360 Never Done Before

THQ's head of communications Huw Beynon has told VG247 that Metro 2033 will be setting a graphical standard on 360 that hasn't been "done before".

His quotes come as it was said recently by the company the game on 360 would reach a new graphical benchmark for consoles.

The story is too old to be commented.

This has got to be a joke,the graphics are far from raising the bar,sloppy animation,poor voice acting and the controls are pretty poor too.the game is a letdown if im honest,its got a slightly cool atmosphere but many niggles that spoil the over all half way through and pretty unimpresed from what i thought it would be honest 6.5/10…worth a play through once..oh yeah,terrible difficulty spikes too.DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE…you will feel ripped off as the game feels unfinished.

"I could care less about Gears 3.
*hate shooters* "

So you hate shooters.. I think I will take advice from someone who doesn't hate shooters and doesn't spend all day hating on the 360 here.

Why did you buy Metro 2033 if you hate shooters?? Lemme guess, since it isn't officially out yet you didn't buy it did you ninjanutta2?

FangBlade3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

No, I didnt buy it.. but I still have it. (guess how)
And yes, I hate shooters, so what? I was talking about the graphics (mainly).

Im booing you as you read this Fangblade.


God damn friggin pirates.

LehJavier3171d ago


Take a look at this and tell me it isn't raising the bar

Visually this game is INCREDIBLE, easily matching games like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 etc.

k-Lan3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

FangBlade. Your mamma's calling you home for supper from the open zone in the PS3 section. While you're here, what's your thoughts on MAG's graphics?

Dance3171d ago

Technically and Artistically are two completely different things so stop mixing them up

Anton Chigurh3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )


Why do you constantly bad mouth Sony's exclusive and especially MAG ?

I paid 60$ for my MAG Copy and I'm happy with it


Nice editing

Wow! Nice cutscene still shot, LehJavier! That totally shows how awesome the graphics of the game are.

Ghostsmoker3171d ago

Well, I bought the game today and played it a little bit. From a graphical standpoint the game is really good. The textures and overall presentations are outstanding for a console game. The shooting mechanics are not perfect. But they are not bad too. I like the game and I can only advise to give this game a chance. It does some things very well and the cons are excusable.

Marojado3171d ago


Thats a DirectX 11 screen, why would you post that for the 360? It even says it in the title of the image.

That being said, the 360 version is shaping up to look pretty damn good as well, I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl.

jakethemuss3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

and I am a ps3 fanboy. The enviorment, the graphics make it seem intense and I'd say you only think the voice acting is poor because of the russian accent. There are issues with the shooting apparently, but these are probally similar to those of KZ2 where people where lacking in skill and couldn't control emulating real world. I think these controls will improve the atmosphere, as player fight to control themsealves and defeat enemies.

Biggest3171d ago

If it has the feel of Killzone 2, I am now interested. I hope people don't cry their way to Modern WArcade controls. . . Again.

UnwanteDreamz3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

Naughty naughty no posting PC screens and calling them Xbox360. I hope they can push the 360 to new heights. That way Sony has to answer. Here lately they have been competing with themselves in the tech department. (MIGHTY PC NOT INCLUDED)

raztad3170d ago

I want Metro to be a good game and be released on PS3. THQ said they couldt have a PS3 version on time and decided to go ahead with Pc/xbox only.

I love russian themed FPSs, I mean I love STALKER :).

I dont expect the visuals to be mindblowing but I dont care if the atmosphere makes for it.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

Well FangBlade Metro 2033 does look better than anything on the PS3 so far, it has that going for it. Did you know this game was once a PS3 exclusive?

The PC version with DX11 makes you say, Crysis who?

Spiderman3170d ago

Put it this way. Ive played this game on PC, and it truly is stunning.

I obviously cannot speak for the 360 version but if its the same then yes its easily one of the best looking 360 games.

Greywulf3170d ago (Edited 3170d ago )

If you think Metro is impressive, you clearly haven't touched Crysis.

And yeah, Im sure Metro2033 is going to set the world on fire, just like Section 8 and its bar raising visuals did. You think its running the same engine on consoles, yet at the same time claim you need 5000 dollar rigs to run PC games, which is it?

Get off the visuals truck guys. You've been waiting 5 years. Its going to come from exclusive development, not shared.

beans3170d ago

Nice to know 360 is finally raising the bar and putting an end to the KZ2 graphics crown. As far as I'm concerned both consoles are doing a great job constantly outdoing each another.



Then play it on PC Version, you will have the truly HD Version.

Bigpappy3170d ago

You are a well known PS3 fanboy. Why would anyone who actually own the 360 take your advice. I don't buy games for graphics. I will wait for a demo or rent before I buy, because I have never played anything by this developer and will not just hand over 60 bones to see pretty graphics on my TV. As for you so call advice: Piss off looser!

JonnyBadfinger3170d ago

Am i the only person who looks at this game and thinks "Wow that looks incredibly generic and i see absolutely nothing appealing about it"?

The game looks like a bore-fest to me, however Just Cause 2 is right around the corner and i dont care about another mediocre post-apocalyptic FPS... its called Fallout and it beats Metro like its a prisoner in Guantanamo Bay.

Ha what? Didnt they even say the port was done very quickly and they didnt even push the 360 hardware? 360 has plenty of games that look better than this.

I'm sure Metro is great (I'll be buying it on the PC when I get around to it) but it's hardly a game I'd use to brag about 360s visuals.

I know in PR you "talk it up", but c'mon now.

GiantEnemyCrab3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

What game on the 360 would you use to brag about 360 visuals?

This should be good, I'd love to hear it.

Fishy Fingers3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

Mass Effect 2, Gears 2, Resi 5. If you want to look forward, of course Alan Wake. Do I need to go on? Or is that alright for you sir? Dont be so sensitive.

shazui1233171d ago

Dont compare to ps3 exclusives like UC2, KZ2, GOW3, Heavy Rain graphically

3171d ago
GiantEnemyCrab3171d ago (Edited 3171d ago )

So asking you what games you think do look impressive is being sensitive? I really wanted to hear your take on it. ME2 I agree with you on that as well as the upcoming Alan Wake I would add Rage as well.

Pennywise: Who was talking to you PS3 fanboy? I sure as hell wasn't. So if I have this permission now what is your excuse for being a constant jerk? Or are you just mad because you get the broad side of my boot regularly on N4G? Them size twelves hurt huh?

k-Lan3171d ago

Pennywise is the usual PS fanboy you see spending most of their time in 360 articles, even though he hates everything the 360 and MS stands for. Am i right Pennywise? If i'm wrong, i would like you to explain why you're always around with that negative attitude of yours.

RememberThe3573171d ago

I'm not sure if what I've seen is PC or 360 but what I've seen looks really good. It doesn't need to be the best looking game on the console, it just needs to looks great and play great and I'll be satisfied.

While I believe there are better games to show the 360's power, Metro 2033 is by no means bad or ugly by any standards. The graphics are pretty good, actually, if you've ACTUALLY played it *hint* *hint* Fangblade.

Gran Touring3171d ago

What is it about graphics that's so important these days? When I read the title, I expected to hear about some new gameplay mechanic or plot development that we haven't seen before. I want to hear about what this game will do different than Fallout, Bioshock or Brink (for example). Not how its graphics are "supposedly" better than game 'XXX'.

s45gr323171d ago

I agree videogame content doesn't matter anymore is all about visuals meh!!!!
