Overall Metro 2033 is a game that should be played. It is atmospheric, gripping and arguably one of the better stories told in a game. Ultimately it's human survival at its best, offering jumps akin to that of Dead Space or Silent Hill and has you on edge more than most FPS titles. A shame then that a couple of failings stop this game being perfection, as without them it would have been just that. However that said, it is a lot more than another by the book shooter, it has hopefully set a precedent for more of this type of game.
