Metro 2033, not exactly WOW! - Page 3

post #21 of 105
Thread Starter 
That doesn't mean that the guns have to be that bad. They are useless from long range. I love how some post apocalyptic games always seem to make humans revert into really backwards people. Why would not living on the surface force us to live it such crap holes? And bullets as currency? Seems very pointless. And things so unorganized? Why hasn't someone tried to conquer the metro? I think this games story really isn't tuned to human nature. Trust me, someone would raise an army and send the metro system to hell in a heart beat in a thirst for power. I think that this game tries to go overboard on the crappy life factor. Yea you live in a metro system and earth has gone the way of the dinosaur, why not make the best of it? From what I see there is masive over crowding. Maybe some mass murder is in order. Wow, that would be fun. Metro 2034:The Reckoning! You play Artrium after he goes insane and thinks he is Alexander the Great. Your job, KILL ALL HUMANS!!!!! Now that will get the blood pumping. I can see it now, Station 14 is full of crucified bodies. Someone needs to make this. How come theres no games where you kill mass civilians? Why can't I be the bad guy?

I know that if it were the NYC metro system, guns would not suck at all. And we would have some great restaurants! Metro food is always good here. And more people walk around with great guns that will work for generations to come. And I am sure there are some nice armories here.

I also really hate the entire i'm afraid of monsters theme. Sometimes some people are not afraid!

I will definitely look into my drivers.

If you're expecting to see a war torn, post nuclear apocalyptic world set in Beverly Hills, prepare to be disappointed.

^that should be a warning label on the side of the case.

IF, however, you are prepared to see a dark and dreary wasteland where ammo is limited and you need cunning and wits to stay alive, you will love this game, as I did...it was absolutely gorgeous IMO.

Not to be a ****, but could you press Enter a few times whilst typing please

I thought the game was mediocre. The graphics were brilliant, and the atmosphere was really good. However I still felt the story lacked. It doesn't need to be all action COD style - I like alsorts of games, but I still would have liked something a bit more...

Not exactly the best game ever, and I think it's main trick was the graphics level. Without that it wouldn't have done so well, I don't think.

If you don't think that the Russian Metro system has some tunnels that lead in to armories located underground, I'd say you're the one without a mind.
not arguing with you here just so you know, or flamin or anythin mean, just descussing
BUT IMO

Metro 2033 is set after WWIII, i am guessing since the nukes were launched that most countries were locked into this war, thus resources such as guns, grenades, explosive an **** would be sparce at best, also there are the dead guys which can kill you in the tunnels (forgot what there called), i am guessing there meant to stop you from gettin to the "armories", maybe metro wiki can explain this xD

What's to complain about? The guns fit into the story, so I won't QQ over that. I too own a GTX 570 and didn't have an issue with 4x MSAA, so OP I recommend driver update?
also i completlyy agree with this, dont know about the 570 bit though not been green since i had 8500GT xD

I didn't think it was that great either. The gameplay was really not that great, though it did have it's tense moments. The graphics were great but the setting doesn't really show it off. I read the book before playing the game and the story is crap compared to the book. I know they need to simplify things for a video game but they made a lot of weird choices with the story line.

It was however a great way to test out my 6870's.

Hey my story would kick *** in so many ways. But I have this problem. Most of my stories turn into porno. So, im still working the kinks out.

Sorry if I write in a way that is not clear, I will make sure to double space all my post

I have no problems doing that. I have my screen setup that way. I dont have

the best vision, Maybe that is why this games doesn't look to good to me.

I can barely see anything in low light.

I think we would have a hard enough time gaining access to a "underground armory" in the present, let alone the post apocalyptic polluted wasteland. Im also fairly certain that the game is set some time after the initial "end". Its suggested by the home-made weaponry and ammo. That being considered all the logistics organic to the pre apocalypse would be used up. I mean seriously, whats the first thing eveyone knows to do in the apocalypse? Armory....come on guy.
