Product Description

Product Description

Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.

In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

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.

Manufacturer's Description

Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.

In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

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.

No one likes getting stuck on the underground, but imagine never having step foot outside for more than twenty years. Based on the cult novel by Russian writer Dmitry Glukhovsky this is an inventive mix of first person shooter, role-playing game and survival horror.

Post apocalyptic Moscow is not a safe place to be
Keep an eye on your watch to avoid a lethal radiation dose
Even with friends the odds are stacked against you
Not even the Northern Line is as bad as this

In a post-apocalyptic future the Earth is a radioactive wasteland, where dangerous mutants and the pyshic "Dark Ones" roam above ground. As you try to unite all the different metro stations comparisons to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. are inevitable, with a similarly oppressive atmosphere as gas masks steam up and apparently supernatural monsters seem to rage about you.

Most missions will see you working with other allies, although there are many human factions to deal with and you won't be able to stay on good terms with them all. With a complex narrative, intense action and genuine scares this is set to be one of the most innovative shooters of the year.

Key Features
  • From Russia with Love: The Moscow underground becomes the last safe haven for humanity in this ground-breaking mix of genres and cinematic storytelling.
  • Beautiful destruction: Stunning visuals create a unique vision of the future where even the air you breathe is deadly and every shadow hides deadly mutants.
  • Economy of war: Customise your character and their equipment, with radiation detectors, night vision goggles and an economic system where bullets are the main currency.
  • Diplomatic manoeuvring: Not all humans will be on your side, so pick your friends carefully and employ stealth tactics if you need to raid an enemy base.
  • Further reading: Based on the original story by Dmitry Glukhovsky, and adapted with help from the novelist himself, you must uncover the secrets of the Dark Ones.

Collins English dictionary describes a Masochist, as "someone who seeks to get into situations, which cause them suffering or great difficulty". They might as well say "a Masochist is anyone who wants to play Metro 2033" because playing this unforgiving, brutal, merciless game is like hitting oneself in the face repeatedly with a frying pan, but a beautiful grim, engrossingly atmospheric, purely nihilistic, pixelated rusty frying pan that was made in Russia.

Like a shed load of next generation games Metro 2033 is a first person shooter, that takes place in a post apocalyptic world, torn apart by man, war, and roaming mutants - nothing new there then. But like F.E.A.R 2, (another first person shooter) it has a strong survival horror backdrop, but unlike F.E.A.R 2 (or any other first person shooter) it really pushes the `survival' envelope hard.

This is not you're usual blaster. Bullets are scarce if you're not prepared to look everywhere for them, and the same goes for med kits and other previsions. Also, your weapons are by other FPS standards "useless". They have massive kickback, aim can be iffy, and the the scopes on the sniper/ish weapons are all greasy and muggy reducing visability - which in all honesty adds to the overall `realness' of this post apocalyptic game.

Playing Metro 2033 for the first time reminded me of the glory days of the Resident Evil franchise, back when the games were actually tricky, and relied on some real supply strategy rather than knuckle headed blasting. Like Resident Evil 1 for example, Metro really does rely on your counting every bullet you find, and every bullet you fire, as well as when and where it's best to just use your blade, or throwing knives.

Metro 2033 is an interesting story. The atmosphere is great. Pretty spooky most of the time. The mutants are quite scary (and fast). The human A.I. does vary. Some are a bit dim but others are a fair challenge.
I didn't find the ammo a big issue. Most of the time I found enough as I went through the levels. You can also buy ammo at other metro stations. Some of the more expensive weapons are well worth saving your currency for.
Having to use a gas-mask in some levels is a great idea. You have to change filters every few minutes, which adds to the tension; especially if you are getting low on them. The gas-mask also takes damage, which reduces your vision greatly. Find a new one. Fast. If you don't wear a gas-mask, you suffocate and die in about thirty seconds.
I did get lost a couple of times, which was frustrating but that was maybe just my navigation skills.
Metro 2033 has sneaked up on us this year. I enjoyed it very much. I recommend it, and look forward to Metro 2034,(please).

I was a little dubious about buying this game. When I first saw Metro it seemed pretty interesting but because of some more recent disappointments I was a little reluctant. Now I'm glad I did and I'll tell you why.

Story - For a start it's quite intriguing. I'm a big fan of Fallout (all 3 of them) but didn't get on with STALKER too well. This game while being based on fiction seemed the most "realistic" post apocalyptic game I'd seen. It begins by throwing you right in the middle of the action, but this is not the beginning of the story. After a quick "tutorial" of sorts you're shown Artyom (the protagonist you play) living in his underground town/station called Exhibition. At this stage he's basically never ventured out because of the dangerous things that roam around outside and throughout the metro system - things that have been created by the nuclear war that devastated the surface. Exhibition is then attacked and he's forced to help defend against Nosalises (basically giant rats).
When the attack is over he is given a mission by a man called Hunter who requests him to take a message to a ranger called Miller who resides in the underground city of Polis to request aid for the defence of Exhibition (God only knows why he picks Artyom for this task but there you go). This is the start of Artyoms perilous journey.
During the course of this journey you travel through various metro stations, over the surface fighting mutants, bandits, Nazis (not actual Nazis obviously) and even remnants of the Russian government. I won't say anymore about the storyline so as not to spoil it. I found the end a tad confusing but good none the less.

Gameplay - The gameplay is fairly unique and can be quite difficult at times.

I am really not the type to be into these games. But having read the book pre-hand I thought this was utterly amazing when playing the game. There is people saying they focus to much on story and atmosphere and how it is to much and not enough on the game play. I think you are completely wrong. The story compliments the gameplay if you bother to pay attention, which isn't amazing until you get a feel for it! Play this with some turtle beach headphones on or any headphones up the volume play in the dark . I've never been scared by a game until this!

Yup, you don't have much ammo or "money" and when you buy something new you are skint for a good time! That's because it's the human race trying to cling onto life! What do you expect, becoming a billionaire and all-powerful like in fallout ? NOPE! You are a standard guy, Artyom, and you are not born particularly "wealthy" and have been given a task from someone you barely known for 2 days to risk life and limb to get to Polis ( which turns out 1000000 times harder than you think ) ! Yes you are going to have to take on things up-close from time to time, it's not a spray and pray, you gotta think about what you are doing to try and save some ammo and survive! No, hardly ever will anything go to plan for you and when you get near the light you will get thrown right back into the dark, It isn't easy to balance game and story and make both amazing.

it combines some science, a bit of religion and explains how culture has changed. How underground engineers became practically the new owners of the world as they know the system like the back of their hand and can fix things. And how you god damn have to strive to get that true ending!
