Summary: For a year I was unsure if I should bother with this game or not. Really should NOT have waited a year. This game is so much more than I hoped it would be.. Right off the top, if your looking for another bland FPS game, look elsewhere, they are a dime a dozen. If you like something more. This may be for you. If you prefer far cry over call of duty, this may be for you.. This at its surface is a First person shooter.
Summary: Buggy not very optimized software . My system while not the latest greatest runs all the new games on at least normal settings , with this one I never did get the chop out of it regardless of the video & sound settings. Was a shame I enjoyed the first metro. Big update edit here, I had to update my review as I finally got the game running a day later . Had to do a bit of digging in a few forums but the fix for the chop issue was an easy one.

Summary: The best game I've played since first playing the original Half-Life back in 1999. Super graphics and gameplay. Pick up the complete edition to get all the bonus stuff, levels, maps, play as the other characters. About to do my second run through! Haven't played a game back to back like this since HL1.

Summary: the game works fine, but the freaking hud is completely disorientated. the freaking mouse is shaped like an "X" and everything else from the menu and the inventory menu is completely slanted on one side. i mean what the heck!?!
