Set in the shattered subway of a post-apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a gripping story of underground survival that places the fate of mankind entirely in your hands. In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event that destroyed most of mankind and turned the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground as the human civilisation entered a new Dark Age.
This is a fab price for a game that really does tap into the future imperfect vein nicely. Originally the game was a series of online works and a novel, and it offers the gamer a traditional shooter with a sprinkling of HL2, and a whisper of COD.
The game has received some great reviews from the likes of Eurogamer and has been described as well written, wonderfully imagined and grittily realistic. You take the role of Artyom as you journey through the catacombs, fight off mutant creatures and generally have a fantastic time.
If you enjoy this kind of story, especially one that has been well realised, then Metro 2033 is the way to go.
