Metro 2033
ESRB Rating
M - Mature


The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside. You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.


Metro 2033 is a gripping, atmospheric first person shooter experience powered by cutting edge technology featuring full DX10 and NVDIA PhysX support for high-end gaming PCs, to deliver incredible visuals.

Witness the everyday horrors of a broken society living in constant fear.

Brave the darkness of the tunnels, where mutants hunt their prey and ghostly spirits lurk.

Steel your nerve and prepare to face the terrors that await.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: -Cheap!
-Great game so far, I haven't beaten it due to lack of time, but it's fun.
-Brings back memories of other great single player first person shooter games. With so many on the market, this one is a winner.
-Graphics are really great. Few games share the level of detail seen here.
-Post apocalyptic games are absolutely my favorite. This fits right up there with all the other great ones.

Cons: -The same faces are seen on a lot of NPCs. This isn't really a con as just about all games have this going on. It's not too terrible.

Other Thoughts: -Somehow I missed the existence of this game until recently. I'm always on the lookout for some great post apocalyptic games.
-Hoping to get some time to finish it this week and then replay it on the hardest difficulty ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing game

Pros: This game is so fresh compare to any other game that is around.

The atmosphere of post-apocalyptic Moscow metro makes you live the life of the main character - Artyom.

Fantastic story, amazing gameplay. You just want to play the game again and again.

Graphics is really good

Cons: Few visible bugs, AI isn't always adequate.Some people say multiplayer would be nice, it doesn't really matter to me. Steam is required in order to play

Other Thoughts: Finished it in 9 hours, wish it was a little longer. Now I'd have to wait for Metro:Last Night. I highly recommend it, specially if you are tired of playing those american shooters that just copy one another. Forget about MW and BF and buy Metro 2033. The price is cheaper on steam!!!

Almost maxed out (high) video settings @ 1920 x 1080

EVGA GTX 460 (SE) overclocked @ 810
Phenom II x4 970 @ stock settings

5 out of 5 eggsgreat First Person Shooter game

Pros: excellent graphics.

immersive gameplay.

good story.

plenty of action.

can be very challenging.

great 'test' of your system...if you can play this game at max settings, you have quite a system...I have a system with an Intel 2500k and MSI 560ti video card and all was good.

very good voiceover/acting and direction (i know its a game, but some games are really terrible with that).

overall, a well thought out and well designed game.

Cons: na

Other Thoughts: saw it for $10. I thought, how can I go wrong?

I was very pleasantly surprised with all aspects of the game and gameplay.

highly recommended First Person Shooter..and a steal at the price...

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a great game!

Pros: When I bought this game here on newegg, it was on sale for only $9.99. Glad I got it when I did :D..
Even if you buy it for $19.99
I very much doubt you will regret it.
Also once its installed, you will not have to insert the DVD back into your drive to play the game.

Cons: Not sure if its a con or not but it seems you must install/use "STEAM" since its seems to be part of the installation. but its no big deal to me since I already have an account.

No online multi player also. This is a single player game but it still gets 5 stars from me.

Other Thoughts: If you have high end Nvidia cards like two 580's in SLI and a separate dedicated physX card like myself. The game options has a option for advanced physX if you have a physX card . Although I am sure ATI users will still get a brilliant graphics show just the same.

Based on a Russian novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro 2033 is set in post-apocalyptic Moscow. After nuclear devastation ravaged the earth and skies, the people of Moscow retreated into the sprawling underground Metro system in order to survive, building tattered towns at various stations throughout. The world is populated by mutants, dangerous anomalies and a number of supernatural occurrences. In the midst of this strange setting, players take control of the young Artyom and guide him on his quest to deliver an important message to a neighboring station. He'll fight a ton of generic enemies in order to get there, with a few surprises along the way.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Game

Pros: -Great Story
-I like the way interaction with characters is more based on proximity rather than the pushing of a button.
-Ammo for currency, great concept
-Consistent Immersive Atmosphere throughout
-was on sale for 9.95
Steam(see Cons)

Cons: -Steam*- could be a con for some, when I'd first installed Metro 2033 I didn't at all that it forces you to install Steam. I just don't like having useless programs running in the background while i game, but I've already grown to accept the software for what it is, a whole lot better alternate to DRM's.

-This Game sets the standard, which is not necessarily a con but I've been holding off on an upgrade for some time and this is first game I've played that brings my GTX 275(overclocked mind you) to its knees with max settings.

Other Thoughts: It's a decent game, not great. I mentioned already, I'm due for an upgrade. GTX 580 should get the job done.

4 out of 5 eggsМетро 2033 велик

Pros: Good story. Good graphics. If you know anything about the Moscow Metro this game will interest you even more. The changing characters that assist you through-out the game make this game enjoyable as well.

Cons: AI is bit odd at times. You have to wait for your AI partner at times to accomplish certain tasks.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good game. Game is dark and a bit scary at times.

5 out of 5 eggsExquisite

Pros: 110% amazing game. Storyline to the graphics is 100% what anyone could ask for in a game. You will be sucked into this game.

The best game I have ever played.

Cons: You will need a decent video card and processor.

Other Thoughts: Phenom II triple core, Nvidia GTX 460, 4Gb DDR2 memory, cruised at med-high settings. Looks more amazing than any game I own.

I can see how it would receive a low rating from people less fortunate/endowed if they do not have a good video card to game with.
