Xbox Evolved: "Metro 2033 hits stores tomorrow in North America. Anxious to get your hands on the game? Check out the first 10 minutes. " ***Video seems to still be processing on YouTube***
Looking forward to playing this game. Mixed reviews so far
ohh i see what you did there! You said mixed reviews so far when the reviews out are not mixed at all.. Clever!! ;)
Actually the reviews are mixed: 1. GameStar (German PC magazine) = 8.5/10 2. Xbox 360 Magazine (UK) = 8/10 3. GamesRadar = 9/10 4. Xbox World 360 (CVG) = 9/10 5. GameReactor = 7/10
They could end like total crap tomorrow but as of today..the 360 version reviews are not mixed at all and that the one i'm getting so i don't care for pc reviews PC 1. GameStar (German PC magazine) = 8.5/10 2. GamesRadar = 9/10 3. GameReactor = 7/10 360 1. GamesRadar = 9/10 2. Xbox World 360 (CVG) = 9/10 3. GameReactor = 8/10 *360 got an 8 in the second opinion review instead of 7 on the pc* 2. Xbox 360 Magazine (UK) = 8/10 8-9 are mixed ? wow thats a new one
wow so we're differentiating PC and 360 reviews now? Yeah, because they TOTALLY are different games and play different -_- /sarcasm At the end of the day its still the damn game. I don't know what you are trying to get at or if you're for some reason defending the 360 but you aren't making much sense.
A mixed score is like too human, haze, lair, or even heavy rain, where marks are fluctuating between 5.0-10's. I can't think of a single goty title that got all perfect 9-10 marks, even LBP got a 7.5 from somewhere I think.
I fail to see what doesn't make much sense about it blaze clearly PC games are held to a higher standard then 360 games. There different platforms and although am sure the PC version is still superior like all PC/360 games there basically pointing out for an 360 game it's worth a good 8 at least. DS games are reviewed to a different standard PS2 games are reviewed to a different standard Wii game's are reviewed to a different standard and PSP game's are reviewed to a different standard. So why shouldn't a 360 game and a PC game receive different reviews?
Blaze is right. What the hell is the difference. At the end of the day both versions are still the same game. If the story sucks, the story sucks for both games. If the game sucks in general, the game sucks for both games. If the shooting sucks, guess what, it probably sucks for both games. Those reviews were judging off THE GAME. There's no content differences between the versions so I don't see why we need to separate reviews of the 360 and PC version. @Rush What kind of logic is that? Of course DS games are reviewed different from PS2 versions of the game. Did you even think before typing that? Unless the PC version has touch controls and the 360 has gestures with really awful graphics, then that's a irrelevant comparison in which then yes, you could separate the games.
wow are you all retarded? Blaze and Arid, thanks - you pretty much see what the hell I was talking about. Didn't know there we major differences in the PC and 360 version that we had to separate reviews. THATS a new one.
for difference how about Gamereactor saying the pc game was unpolished and the 360 version wasn't? is that a good enough difference? Or games like supreme commander or Risen that get entirely different score from 360 and pc? If one got an 8 and the other one a 7 on gamereactor there MUST be something different..don't you think? ;)
It's basic logic for none morons, when reviewing a game you review it against the content already available on said platform. Is Crysis on the 360? Is battlefield 2 on the 360? is Counter Strike Source on the 360? is Shattered Horizon on the 360? simple answer no... So when you review Metro 33 on the PC it gets compared to games on that platform, Which results in a 7. When you compare Metro 33 on the 360 to games on that platform it fairs slightly better since FPS's are of course weaker on the 360 which result in an 8. Just because the content is the same doesn't mean there reviewed to the same standard. Do you think Final Fantasy 7 would of reviewed so highly on the PSX if Diablo 2 was on that platform? I never said anything about the games being different you simply wasn't smart enough to understand my point the first time. Maybe next time instead of being a pathetic fanboy you will look past your own BS and understand my point. Disagree all you want if your IQ is above 4 it's not very hard to see am right.
This game looks pretty sick on whatever platform its on! noticed some horror elements in there too, very Groovy man... I hope it goes on the PS3 as well.
i guess this game proves that you must own both consoles (or ps3 and a damn good pc) this game looks awesome (and i know an awesome game when i see one) @ arguement above- reviews still? cmon now....
Average Game. Mixed Reviews. Meh.
Animations and graphics aren't what I thought they'd be but animation is good enough and graphics look great. However, it's the story and atmosphere of the universe that really compels me. FPS based only in America really are just a bore to me now. I have a way better entertainment feel for a FPS that's done outside of USA & Mexico. Heck, I'd take even Canada but games like this set in Russia or R:fom set in Yorkshire/London in Britain just gives a fresh vibe for exploration. Futuristic FPSs set on earth or in America also chaffs my butt too. It's futuristic! you can let your imagination run rampant and create incredible worlds! Why just stick with Earth and America? Many little nagging things that stood out in that first 10min vid that you feel they could have paid a bit more attention for better immersion but I like the feel of this game and I hope it's not going to be a let down once I get my hands on it. I feel it's most likely going to be on the PS3 later adn if it does come, as long as they put in some solid content to compensate for timed exclusivity with the 360, then I'll put in and support the developers of this game for sure. If it's not announced for the PS3 this year, I'll just go rent it and play it on a friend's 360 for sure.
Only downer for me is no multiplayer, thats just unheard of these days for an fps, still I really like the graphics and setting for this game, it looks like their just might be enough there to make this an interesting game for a shooter fan like myself, so I guess I'm going to give this game a shot. I hope its worth my $60, if not I'll just get the cool achievements and then it will join the very short list of games I traded in this gen(Ninja Blade & Madden09), so I'm not too worried. JOY
I liked the interaction when climbing the ladder, it looks very immersive; but when he turned the wheel without touching it, the illusion was ruined completely. The shooting looks well done so I'll probably get it.
since the vid doesn't work and i've never heard of the game...im gonna be a lil more clueless
works fine for me
he was probably trying to view it when it was processing
Seems like you have never heard of this game before http://n4g.com/NewsCom-4714... So which is it? you "never heard of it" or "you never heard of it again" ???
Ahhh cool. Just what I needed. Can't wait till the video is up because I need to know whether I want to buy this or not. Too bad there won't be a pre-release
Wish there was a pre-release demo. Wanna know whats up with all the reviews saying the shooting sucks, and this game is a FPS but it gets a 9/10. Makes no sense. That's like saying GT5's racing sucks but you'll give a 10/10
Is there a demo confirmed at all?
Yeah I think they said they can't do one before the release of the game due to time restraints and resources. But can't remember if they said after for sure
Very nice, very nice.
mediocre at best, might play it for 10min on my PC
haha your playtime will be the same as this video then likely lol
Seems pretty interesting, not sure if I'm ready to jump into another shooter though...
I hear its a mixture of shooter/RPG/...and one more thing i forgot.
If it were cheaper I might buy it.
Looks alright, but I'll wait until it's cheaper. Not paying full price for a short(ish) linear shooter with no multiplayer.
Ok I guess. *Shrugs* Nothing I've seen really excited me.
I might just torrent it and see what its all about. Probably nothing special.
Looks pretty good. Looks like it could get very atmospheric as the game goes on and thats what I like from my games. I think I'll pick it up for my 360 in the near future.
n4gps3 yet when a ps3 review gets a 8 or 9 its crap? but a 8 or 9 on 360 is amazing typical fanboy
oh that explains it. He's a 360 fanboy or something?
Looks really good so I will pick it up soon. Would have been great to have multiplayer but not every game needs it.
Looks really well made but I'm just sick to death of this type of thing. I couldn't play another gritty war/mutant/post apocalyptic shooter for my life right now. The time when people like David Lynch and Alejandro Jodorowsky see the potential of videogames as an artistic medium and decide to create something new and exciting is way overdue. Even the best games I'm playing seem to be things I wouldn't watch if they were movies. I dunno, maybe I'm just burnt out on the whole thing.
Can't lie. That looked really boring. Don't see myself playing that more than once :/
Isn`t this supposed to like raise some sort of bar for consoles or something like that? Strange, because this doesn`t even look 1/8 as good as Killzone 2 even. I think everybody knows what the main attraction is tomorrow.
It did raise the bar, clean the boogers off your glasses. No game on the PS3 looks this good, and you still have Alan Wake and Halo Reach to cry about.
Lol. How delusional are you? I sat here and watched this entire video, and it looks BLAND. BLAND. BLAND. It doesn`t even look as good as Gears 1. The bots are in some serious delusion thanks to God of War 3.
enjoy another dark 360 game with a flashlight to lead the way
Damn, Bioshock 2 is better.
But if it's any good, I'll probably just pirate it on my new Sony VAIO... Just like what I did with Mass Effect 2 piratebay.org
The game looks OK game, but the animation is one of the worst I´ve seen in a long time. Small number of enemies, no apparent realistic AI, no impact bullet in models or the environment, and where have they put the particle system?
I love games with atmosphere and mystery like bioshock and batman arkham asylum, so this will be getting played. I can only rent games at the moment though, stupid recession, i feel guilty for not supporting developers, i cant even afford GOW 3! :(
You really should stop before you really make a fool out of yourself.
Its way too late for that.
Sorry jason pleasefixme the pc version (im awaiting a crack for) might look good but the 360 version looks sh!t and washed out
looked like doom, ....sick
It's a damn first person shooter and get this. They gave Metro 2033 a 9 but under bad things they said, and I directly quote, "The shooting sucks". That makes absolutely no sense to me. If the main mechanic of a game is bad, how can that game get such a high score?
Seriously. It's like saying a basketball game gets a 9/10 even though the shooting sucks. Or a driving game gets a 9/10 when the driving sucks. I've been pretty unimpressed by what I've seen.
I guess the article posted here about this game being a graphic beauty and the best looking game on the 360, is just as I thought...a stretch.. game looks good, but it like some of the alan wake (must buy for me) is so doomish..dark and flashlight...so its easier to make the game look good....
They did a really good job with the atmosphere, but I think I'll pass on this game.
How can you pass on this? The shooting sucks. It's a must have in my opinion.
It might have to be a Rent just because it lacks multiplayer and from that first 10 minutes that looked Very Boring. I dont know if its worth 65 bucks
I would take this game over WKC, MAG, Heavy Buttons, MLB The Show any day.
Of course you would. Purchasing those games would lead to you staring at the case with drool coming out of your mouth just wishing you weren't such a fanboy tool and could afford a PS3.
damn im torn. the video didnt get me too excited. guess im going to wait for a deal on Steam.
the shooting sucks in bioshock, STALKER,fallout 3 and the list goes on But does that mean they are bad games???
The games you mentioned had other things going for them. Bioshock shooting was fine but what really helped the combat was the plasmids. Nothing like that in Metro. Fallout 3's shooting was also fine. As a matter of fact it was great as most reviewers said mainly because of the addition of the slow-mo you could engage in. Reading through reviews the combat mechanics in Metro are more about being a pure shooter and a pure shooter should have immaculate shooting as its core mechanic.
