Shop To are currently offering atmospheric shooter Metro 2033 for less than £25. With the next best price coming in at £30.99 from Powerplay Direct, this is a fantastic deal, saving you at least £6 compared to elsewhere. Not only is this an absurdly good price for such a new, high quality game, but Shop To are even throwing in a free 1gb memory stick ("while stocks last" of course) to sweeten it.
Making the unusual jump from novel straight to video game (the book in question being Dmitry Glukovsky’s work of the same name), Metro 2033 unsurprisingly boasts a pretty strong plot with the tendency to make you think as well as feel. It tells of the subterranean dwellers of Moscow's Metro system following the fall of humanity from the planet's surface following an apocalyptic occurrence.
Metro 2033 is highly successful in building a tense atmosphere that will crawl its itchy way across your brain like a swarm of centipedes. It offers a strange and frightening vision of the world that is easy to immerse yourself into.
How much you enjoy Metro 2033 will likely depend on how polished you like your games to be. If you can happily ignore some rough edges for the sake of an involving and fascinating experience which rewards you for exploration and resourceful behaviour, then you're likely to love this. On the other hand, if you like your games shiny and your combat mechanics perfect then you may come away from Metro 2033 disappointed.
