Metro 2033

February 18, 2010

Went to London’s Centre Point today to preview Metro 2033. I’ve been looking forward to Metro 2033 for quite a while now after hearing that it was going to be another supernatural horror FPS. I loved F.E.A.R 2: Project Origin, so I pretty much was hoping this would be a little like that.

It isn’t. At all. It felt disappointing after the first few chapters. The game opens up beautifully but then slowly falls into repetitive and slow shoot outs, such a shame because the idea behind it seems so promising. Let us hope that a few hours into the game it picks back up again.

Preview will be going up on Consolemonster.com over the weekend. You should check it out if you know what’s good for ya 😉

Went for drinks after and generally had a good evening. Also I have eaten so much in the last 3 days my tummy might explode.

    From the folks I know who were there, reaction was mixed.

    You loved Fear 2, though? Christ. I thought it was the definition of ordinary. I actually can’t remember anything that happened in the game, except for the stupid boss fight.

    All that free food is just too tempting. Hope you had a good time 🙂

      I was at the day event. No free food for me 😦

    I agree with Lewis. Saying “I loved Fear 2” is like saying Die Hard is so rad… you know, the one where Bruce Willis goes around punching people with the “I’m a Mac” guy and Kevin Smith.

    Nevermind, Metro 2033 looks amazingly and suspiciously like STALKER and that’s dope.

      It looks like the equally opressive antithesis of Stalker to me.

    I thought FEAR was a solid shooter, not an award winner but a good way to spend a few evenings, really love the bullet-time as well.

    Disappointed to hear bad things about this 😦 is it purty though? Idm corridor shooters if they look nice and feel chunky.
