Metro 2033 is a Shooting game available on the 360.
Metro 2033 is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Metro 2033 for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Metro 2033 puts atmosphere at the top of its feature list to take you deep into a scary post apocalyptic world filled with danger. Anyone taking on this role will come away with a real sense of the terror facing its survivors, even though the tension wains at little before the end.

When it comes to portraying a post-apocalyptic landscape, the former Soviet Union and parts of the Eastern Bloc have a head start.
Metro 2033 welcomes players into a nightmare, post apocalypse Moscow, fear and terror lurk around every corner.
Metro 2033 has cured my vertigo. Even at its most dizzying elevations I did not give the precarious positions I found my character in a second thought, in A4's first person shooter. Unfortunately, it has managed to replace my fear of heights with an unreasonable fear of confined spaces, thanks to its oppressive, immersive world.
