You need to install Nvidia PhysX for Metro to work correctly. It'll work fine with your AMD GPU (doesn't require an Nvidia card to work), but you do need the PhysX software installed from Nvidia.

EDIT:
PhysX acceleration WILL only work on an Nvidia card. Without one, you'll be forced to using your CPU for PhysX. So it'd be best to disable the in game PhysX once you're up and running. You do still need the software to run the game though.

If you get other errors like this one, press right mouse button on metro2033 in your steam library -> Properties -> Verify integrity of game cache. It should now start downloading all missing files.
