Saw this for cheap at a shop near me. Any good?
Like the Stalker series it seems to be one of those games that's largely open to preference. Personally I thought it was very good, maybe overly linear but with a great atmosphere.
Assuming you're talking about the PC version, there was a 3GB demo released if you want to give it a go before purchase. It's also quite graphically demanding in anything above medium settings, so that might be another reason to check the demo.
As Dunkass said, it's best compared to Stalker in my opinion. Brutal, bleak, and very definitely eastern European in flavour, it's a breath of fresh air if you're after something a little grittier than your average FPS.
Unfortunately, the combat lacks any real punch, and slaying the monsters that lurk around in the Metro isn't nearly as satisfying as it could be, but they've promised to fix that in the upcoming sequel. The immersion level is excellent though, and really is worth the entry fee alone, especially if you've found it at a particularly low price.
