Metro 2033: The Last Refuge (Xbox 360, PC) review


Next to World War II, the post-apocalyptic setting remains one of the most popular in gaming, especially this current generation. Many gaming studios have created their own vision of a world overrun by zombies or mutations, from the result of nuclear...

Such frustrations aside, Metro 2033 is still a pleasant addition to an otherwise played-out genre and setting. Survival horror enthusiasts will especially delight in the game's sound design, featuring some blood-curdling howls and noises from creatures...

Metro 2033


Let me paint a picture for you: Imagine yourself hiding in a dark corner of a room lit only by the pale glow of a mutated water hyacinth. The air is silent and heavy, permeated only by the irregular snarl of a sleeping beast in an adjacent room. You...

Metro 2033


Anyone looking for proof that Metro 2033 isn't going to be one of those FPS titles where you wander the levels armed with over powered weapons, enemies falling in waves before your relentless one man purge need look no further than the opening minutes....

With such a focus on atmosphere it helps that the whole thing is running on an engine more than capable of showing off. It may spend a lot of the time rendering corridors and tunnels but these are some of the best looking corridors and tunnels you'll...

Metro 2033


The atmospheric world of Metro 2033 is exciting while it lasts, but feels diluted by poor gunplay and monster AI.

Metro 2033 (2010)


Ripped from the pages of scribe Dmitry Glukhovsky’s cult novel and transposed to pixels and pad by developer 4A Games, THQ’s Metro 2033 confidently swaggers on to 360 as one of the finest looking console exclusive shooters Microsoft’s machine has...

From Russia with no good puns...

As an overall experience this narrative-rich shooter is memorable, unique and terrifying in equal measure.

Metro 2033


There's a kind of tingly feeling as you start playing Metro 2033, based on the book of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky, a subconscious summation of too much data to consciously be aware of. A summation some might call ‘a premonition'. It says "This...

Metro 2033


Metro 2033 features excellent visual fidelity, loads of thrills and it makes use of a number of innovative ideas, but the lack of narrative continuity and a few design flaws here and there keep it far away from greatness.

Gorgeous visuals ; Thrilling story ; Fascinating ideas ; Interesting set of environments

Narrative seems and the lack of continuity hampers the fictional feels ; A few design flaws here there

On a whole, Metro 2033 features excellent visual fidelity, loads of thrills and it makes use of a number of innovative ideas, but the lack of narrative continuity and a few design flaws here and there keep it far away from greatness.

Metro 2033 360 Review


It's been a few weeks since the launch of this seminal successor to STALKER but as the dust settles over the Russian metro, there is still a lot to discover. The third official shooter from 4A Games of previous GSC Game World developers, this post...

Does not compromise on difficulty ; Well conceived ideas and storytelling ; Look excellent for the most part

Some poor choices in voice over and dubs ; Niche game and definitely not for everyone ; Very linear

Props to this fledgling studio for both cracking the consoles market and making such a solid game. On top all this, trying some new gameplay design ideas and stretching their storytelling ability. Stalker despite its open world realism was sorely...

Metro 2033 review


Just what the world needed, another gloomy FPS, and coming from Rusaian developers, it predictably paints a distressing picture of life during a nuclear winter in Moscow. At the rate games like these hit the market, one really has to be good to stand...

Metro 2033 was designed for the PC, and it shows, resulting in an experience littered with lacklustre combat and a continual feeling that things would be better with a mouse and keyboard.
