Metro 2033, not exactly WOW! - Page 11

post #101 of 105
The storyline was pretty good actually. I enjoyed it. Graphics were meh but then I was playing for gameplay and not graphics (DX10 rendered, don't really care about graphical levels.)

What infuriated me was how linear the game felt.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind linear games but what I DETEST is invisible walls. Destruction that only leads to one path. It really felt like I was being herded through the game in one particular way.

Now I LOVED the mechanics of the game. I loved the "gas mask" idea with filters etc. I also loved that you had to charge your flashlight and NV goggles. Also loved some of the enemy mechanics (Librarian anyone?) Really a fresh breath into post apocalyptic there.

I must admit though, there were several parts that I RAGED over more than probably should have. I hated not being able to explore certain areas of the map. IE, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to explore outside more but couldn't or explore Pollis more (than the 2 rooms where you actually can move.)

I launched Metro up, put everything on max, Anti-Aliasing as AAA (4xmsaa would give me low frame rates! Very noticeable to me) and was getting a good frame rate. Game was smooth as butter. Problem is after playing 4 hours I still haven't seen the amazing graphics. The environment doesn't look as good as it could. Also I know this is a book and all but the story is kinda weak up to where i am at. Im having trouble staying interested. Which really sucks. I wan't to enjoy this game but some parts seem over thought and try so hard to scare me. The setting of the game is not great for this. I think the developer could have done a better job. I am a little let down with this game. I expected at least something that was fun but not even. Plus that gun that you start out with is just crap. This made the game really annoying. I was using the pistol most of the time. And when i did use that smg(if you could call it that) i felt like i was fighting with a paint ball. I joked with my nephew and asked "what are these people fighting with? They would be better of just punching each other!" I don't know if maybe it is me but this game was a total let down. And the story is, meh at best. Maybe I can force myself through the game so that this purchase wasn't a total waste. I hope Homefront doesn't do this.

Okay im sorry man but i played game on russian (coz i am one) and its actually really different then playing on English. Only russian person will understand all the inside jokes, the culture, and everything around you.

The whole story line feels different from the perspective you play. Its no COD man it METRO, It is not FALLOUT its METRO the game is meant to be survival shooter kinda like STALKER just linear. The weapons are meant to be weak because it post apocalyptic world! What you expect clean new shining m16 with grenade launcher? Gee. This is one of few book based games and it dose it well.
It is just the kind of the game you will not fully understand and enjoy unless you know the culture.

I beat the game on a 9500gt video card, I really enjoyed the story and gameplay. In the last year it's one of the few games I actually finished. I think Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2 and Metro 2033 were the best games I played last year.

I think just because your in the Metro it wouldn't happen. And within that time frame, they would have done so big strides. The Roam Empire grew from nowhere and took over a very large amount of land.

Also bout the bullets, they use them as currency, I doubt they will shoot them up. When one good one buys many crappy ones. It's like saying people shoot gold bullets today.
What am I doing wrong? Everything max except AA, thats on AAA not 4xMSAA. Only thing and it is very playable. I will verify but all the options I see are maxxed and anything over 35fps is playable for me, in a slow paced game like this one its hard for me to see a difference.

Its funny to me how this thread has gotten so, mean. Can't we all just have a discussion without calling each other stupid? Common, lets keep it somewhat civilized.
honestly im just gonna do that... LOL lMAO ROFL

LOL no one in history human kind has conquered Afghanistan, ever. Not even Alexander, nor USSR , neither did this lowly excuse for a president George Bush.
Second those guys were not torn down by global nuclear war, mutants, lack food and communication between basses, lack of man power, -40C cold temp, 2 warring factions and strange anomalies. I think i make my point clear.
People cant make good bullets any more, bullets from old times are rare. Bullets = Survival. why would you want a piece of paper or a copper coin in world with no capitalist economy and hundreds of blood thirsty mutants on your arse? I would prefer an smg and few bullets.

Your history is kinda bad. Afghanistan has been conquered by, Daruis I the great back in ~500BC, Alexander conquered Persia in ~330BC which included modern day Afghanistan, This are later became known as the Selecuid Empire after Alexanders death, and the list goes on and on and on. That area of the world has changed hands a lot of times. but that is neither here nor there.

Now with the economy they have. If old bullets are gold, why shoot them? What happens when there are no more? no more roast pig? would you throw diamonds at people? And with the post apocalyptic theme I would have expected better melee weapons. Seriously where is the iron bar? surely they have a lot of that? But I think another poster had it right, these far fetched survival horror games are not my thing.
