Also, you people need stop acting like Ranger mode is the only way to play the game. Yes, it's more enjoyable when you're a hardcore gamer.. but Metro 2033 was still awesome without it. Yes, they say it's the way it's meant to be played, but that's not really true. It's just a hell of a lot more immersive and a bit more difficult. What's Metro 2033 got without it? It still has a very strong story and gameplay and, not to mention, very pretty and atmospheric. Ranger mode hardly makes the game to anyone who isn't a hardcore gamer.

I actually wouldn't be surprised if 4A ends up giving it away to PC gamers at some point.

people like you that supports this kind crap is the reason why they will countinue on doing this and it will only gonna get worse. we have to pay for a difficulty level now? and you are saying that this is ok? what's next? video settings dlc? where are you going to draw the line?

in the end for $5 thats honestly not that bad when DLC for a lot of other games is double that

What? Of course not. I will not buy this game because if there is any dlc that should have been included into the main game it is this one. What is next? The ability to save progress being dlc?

*shrugs* I don't see anything wrong with this.

I'd much rather have an external feature like Ranger mode in a DLC than have storylines and characters cut from the game and put into DLC. The latter hurts the game once more, because once you cut stories and characters out of a game, they never integrate back in fully, even if you buy the DLCs.

I also don't understand the uproar. Yes, DLC is tiresome, but this is a relatively harmless DLC...

I bought the first metro for like 3 bucks on green man gaming to get the 10% off the steam pre order for the new one. I am about 5 hrs into it and I am enjoying it. So I ended up getting both games for about 45 bucks. Wish I waited though but its not like both games together isnt worth 45 bucks imo

I believe only hardcore players would like to play the ranger mode... I wouldn't try it...

This

THQ already promised ranger mode as DLC to retailers six months ago before deep silver took over metro.So there is no point in boycotting Metro over a game mode that only 1% of the player base is going to play

Not buying the game is only going to hurt the developers.

We should be more upset about the performance/artifact issues people with ATI cards are having, and nothing something the developers had no control over.

It's interesting how the industry is shaping into a mass of under-handed limitations (can't use this since you don't have the day-one DLC), blackmail (do this or we won't stock your game), false advertising (Aliens: Colonial Marines), target demographic segregation (hardcore vs regular players) and always-online nonsense (see latest EA games).

I foresee great days ahead, where while gaming the "you experience may vary" saying will hold greater truth than ever before.

Meanwhile I still return to older games, which are easy to install and easy to run .

PS. As bad as Ranger Mode DLC is, I'm surprised they still released the game with a narrow FOV and no in-game option to change it (just like they did with Metro 2033). I've even heard that this time there's no .ini or .cfg tweak to increase it...

Well this i the funniest way to get more money : buy the game and then pay to be able to play it.
these companies becomes very creative when it come to money .
