I'm sorry but that gameplay looks boring, bought feel asleep watching it.

Really? You've obviously never played Metro 2033. These games are as much about the setting around you as they are about gameplay and story.

Really? So graphics trumps all over gameplay? And yes i have played metro 2033. The gameplay was average, and i didnt even finsih it. Takes more then graphics to make me play a game sorry.

How did you get "graphics trumps gameplay" from that statement.

The game was all about using visuals and gameplay to create atmosphere. There are tons of ambient conversations that flesh out the day to day lives of the inhabitants of the metro. The guns are handmade and function about as well as you'd expect. You have to keep your flashlight charged while wandering through the dark. You see your visor frost over and hear yourself start to wheeze as your filters run out. The constant theme of mankind repeating the same mistakes over and over again. The fear you feel when you hear the nosalises coming, or when you need to stare down a Librarian. The surreal situations that happens when the Dark Ones try interact with you, and the subtle fear you feel towards the shadows of the dead.

Those are the little details that kept me immersed in the world. I'll definitely admit the game was far from perfect, especially it's shooter mechanics, but the focus of Metro 2033 was never supposed to be on highly polished gunplay.

Looks cool. Love the post apocalyptic setting for sure.

Thats the whole comment, looks good. Sure it looks good, but gameplay, average at best.
