Platform Nation writes: "Metro 2033 represents what happens when foreign literature and western videogame conventions collide. To begin to describe it would be to spoil the review, but in introduction I must warn you ahead. Metro 2033 is a defining game, it is unique, more unique than any other shooter I have ever seen before. It borrows heavily, yet continuously reinvents and adds new layers of fine crispy first-person goodness. The flaws and finesse may be in perfect harmony, so much so that Metro remains a masterpiece. As you've probably heard from other reviews, the game has many, many flaws, but I will peel back this criticism and see whether the critiques are worthy."
