Boring repetition, not free roaming - it ain't no S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Summary: Had I played it before falling in love with the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series I might have been more inclined to slog through this boring turd. Beautiful atmosphere doesn't make up for the lack of approach choices when tackling any given situation. You can't combine stealth and head-on attacking in any one level; it's either/or.
Summary: I won't say this game is terrible, it just runs like it's on rails. Very linear. It gives the promise of a complex game, but it is just a tease. You have to take one path, there are few options for exploration, scripted sequences abound. The story never totally fills out. Who is this enemy you are fighting, why are you fighting them. Playing is like reading a middle school essay. You got to the end, you just don't remember how or why.
Summary: The description, summary, and screen shots had me pretty excited for this game, but the sometimes gimmicky game play (animation of monsters and such was kind of jerky, not smooth/natural looking) really interfered with trying to get completely immersed in the game. There are better games out there, even for less than $10.
Summary: The graphics are awesome and the story is grate too. NEGATIVE STUFF: The game is TOO SHORT. I Finished the game in 9 hours. ?????? Usually it takes me 3 to 4 weeks to finish a game but this one took me 9 hours. Really disapointed. Paid 50$ for a short game.....
THis game is completely awful. You have all lost it.

Summary: When I first heard about Metro 2033, I was extremely exited. I had been waiting for my post apocalyptic dreamland, and this seemed to be it. Too bad the game sucks. It is full of glitches, the graphics are god awful(that is a little harsh, they are only bad if you've been playing games such as Assassin's Creed 2 for weeks.) This game would have rocked in 2008. The only redeeming quality about this game is the story.
Summary: What a disappointment this turned out to be. I had such high hopes for this. After the letdown that was Bayonetta and Mass Effect 2, I was really hoping for something much better than this. I expect what they'll do is bring out version two of this with little more than all the problems fixed and with a few minor tweaks and call it a revolutionary new game.
Summary: Avis bref pour une jeu sympa mais qui ne mérite pas plus. Il est beau, très beau même avec un cachet graphique très particulier. Ne cherchez pas un ersatz de la série des Stalkers. On tient plus de la peinture que du photo-réalisme. Et le constat est le même u niveau jouabilité. Là où un Shadow of Tchernobyl propose un monde ouvert à la Morrowind ou Fallout, Metro 2033 est un vrai FPS, corridors et corridors encore (logique vous me direz avec un nom pareil).
