Saw that Metro 2033 was on sale for five bucks so I decided to give it a go. I've not gotten very far, but there were some pretty harrowing moments so far already. It's really too bad that they continuously kill the immersion, I wish they had gone the Half-life/Amnesia route and not taken any jumps in the story because otherwise the world feels very authentic and deep. Also the depth of field is sickeningly low, and the game seems to reset it's configuration files every time you launch it. Shame, shame!
I was really impressed by a lot of Metro 2033. Got it on the sale as well.Loved Metro 2033. I thought the combat was suitably rugged and challenging. It really feels like all your (and the enemies) weapons are just barely held together, making for a brutal, tooth and nail sort of affair. Those library creatures too... oh my god. Can't wait for the sequel.
Visually it's very, very nice at times but I totally agree about the immersion-breaking loading screens and "time passes..." copout.
Combat leaves quite a lot to be desired as well, but the atmosphere of the world is palpable.
It really feels like all your (and the enemies) weapons are just barely held together, making for a brutal, tooth and nail sort of affair.So true! By the end of it, I was completely out of ammo, only had like 2 throwing knives remaining, as well as 2 filters. They've gotten the supply balance so right in that game - it's unbelievable.
Episode 3 will never get released!Pff that's a ridiculous statement.
Replaying through the original Half-Lifelol no levelling system what a gay game
So why is it a shame that the devs get money for their incredible work?Have I stated that? It's a shame I can't afford it! (ok, I can afford it if I want, but there are other priorities right now)
I think it's great. The game paid for itself in under 6 hours of going live.
