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.
Excellent FPS and decent RPG. The gaming industry needs more games like Metro, with great gameplay,a wonderful and well-crafted environment, and a good story, the moral; "violence begets only violence, death begets only death".
The developers did a good job in Metro.
Recommended for anyone into shooters.
I never really cared for this game after looking at screenshots and such but after I got it and actually played it I was regretting not to get this sooner. It presents an amazing story and the tone of the whole story is saddening yet frightening. The immersion of this game is very strong and even though it is very scripted it was done in a way that just made the game more intense and enjoyable for me. A must get for anyone!!!
This is easily the best single player shooter ever made. Excellent dialogues enhance this well-crafted story, the soundtrack is perfect, and the survival gameplay mechanics are top-notch. This is one of the most riveting adventure games I've ever played. Sadly there's no real way to mod the game.
