THQ’s released the launch trailer for Metro 2033. Get it after the break.

The 4A actioner, set after a nuclear war, releases this week for PC and 360. Chances of it being shit: nill.

THQ head of communications Huw Beynon told VG247 yesterday that, no matter what platform you go for, your experience with the game will be nothing short of fantastic.

We also spoke with the author of the original novel Dmitry Glukhovsky a couple of weeks back. Get that here.

    The review makes this sound less than impressive in a few areas, but I think the ‘it takes too much to drop enemies’ comment followed by ‘it does encourage a different way of playing… the game’s achievements are weighted towards taking a less aggressive approach tells you everything you need to know’ is pretty confusing.

    Is the core gameplay horribly broken or not?

    EG’s review (an 8, btw) suggests that the game is hinting that you go for a more stealthy approach without actually coming out and saying it. According to them it’s entirely possible to get through some very hairy firefight sections by sneaking around and silent-killing the odd person.

    They also suggest that perhaps the game is more tailored to the precision of a mouse than to a controller, though.

    To me it sounds more like a survival horror than a shooter. Which is somewhat intriguing.

    Just read the EG one and yeah still a bit too much of a mixed bag for me to take the plunge in the release window.

    Like you say EG thinks the mouse would be more accurate but other reviews say it’s to do with hit detection etc and not only down to the decreased accuracy of the pad per se.

    I’ll wait and see I think. Probably be in the bargain bucket in no time.
