From Aperturegames.com: "There's enough originality, tension and atmosphere in Metro to save it from being just an average shooter, but there are too many little flaws that stop it from being something truly special."
Killzone 2 killer? Nope, another false alarm.
Too bad it actually plays a lot better than KZ2, which gets boring after one hour. And yes, I have it myself.
No not a KZ2 killer but it does have it's moments that outshine KZ2 graphically.
Sorry but can someone link me to where people where calling it the Killzone 2 killer? Anybody? Let me guess, one troll, somewhere at sometime said it, and now you can use it as ammunition Pathetic.
A lot of 360 fanboys were claiming it the killzone 2 killer, not just one.
I have both Kz2 and Metro 2033 and both outshine each other at times.
I'll rent it or wait for it to meet the bargain bin.
average game better luck next time
its good for maybe one playthrough and thats it being a primarily underground game, the vistas do get repetitive if only it had taken a fallout 3 rpg open world approach, i mean its just oozing with gaming elements that could make it so
Hello,new to n4g,just wondering why this has ever been dubbed a kz2 killer???wheres the multiplayer?also if there is no multiplayer how long is the sp campaign?hope its longer than other games in the fps market...ever hopelessly sucked in by the hype train,chickenlegs...
Welcome to N4G, the place where one troll makes up a stupid false hope, and all the sheep follow.
Not taking any other game into account, Metro 2033 is a fantastic game. I finally managed to get it working on my PC and i played almost non-stop all of yesterday. The game surpassed my expectations hugely. Such a great game that i would seriously recommend playing, regardless of fanboyism. I am playing with Very High settings with dx10 (dx11 a little too big a hit for my machine just now) and the graphics are great, textures and lighting are top notch, my only gripe was the FOV but you can easily change that in the user.cfg. The shooting mechanics in the game is also very well done, i dont know why its been getting a lot of stick, the only trouble im having so far is always having a shotage of bullets, but IMO that adds the the tension and pure excitement as you have to make every bullet count. Quite far through the game now, and without mentioning any spoilers, the game has a mix of everything, good FPS moments, a few jumpy scenes (especially when i was playing at 2am, no lights on etc :P) and a good storyline that isnt too simple but also isnt so complex that you dont know what the hell you are doing half the time. a solid 9/10 from me.
The graphics on the pc version are incredibly, the only games i have played with better graphics are stalker and crysis.
It looks like most of the people reviewing it are only playing the first couple chapters, it gets a lot better IMO later on. I would give it at least a 7.5. Talk about some battles, there great and don't just try to just run threw or you end up in big trouble.
if it gets multiplayer it would get a better review than that besides there are some levels and scenes better than killzone 2 at times but the game fails to compete on overal graphics because of some levels that are too dark or need more polishing if they gave the game one more year of developing it would really look and play better and another example of ( graphics are not everything )
