Metro 2033 – First 15 minutes of the 360 version in video

Thursday, 18th March 2010 12:59 GMT By Patrick Garratt


With Metro 2033, 4A’s debut, hitting tomorrow, we thought we’d grab the first quarter of an hour of play from the Xbox 360 version. So you can, like, see it.

The THQ shooter’s been catching some nice scores in its run-up to launch, so it should be well on the radar of PC and 360 action fans. Watch below to see why.

Based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s post-apocalyptic novel of the same name, the game sees a young man embark on a journey of discovery in a subterranean world set after the bomb.

It involves guns and monsters. As you do. Check out our recent interview with Dmitry and producer Huw Beynon for more detail.

    Oh god… As expected. English voice is much worse then original Russian. Its better to play with English subtitles and everything else Russian and graphics at the 360 version, not so much…

    Game is a masterpiece. Especially with bullet currency and weapon stuff. Story is straight from the book. So don’t expect shitty US stuff like: Motherfuckers lets do som shit here, ATTACK!!! ARgghh!11111 *big fat muscle rambo from Gears Of Killzone*

    that actually looks really sexy, i stopped it after 3 minutes coz they started killing shit, i thought it would have a lengthy atmospheric intro which eased you into the combat….obviously not

    @3 that’s just the prologue.

    The game does then step back a few days to the beginning of the story and there’s a slower burn to the next major confrontation.

    nice, i was guessing the character you play at the start dies after half an hour in for a shock!! then you’d start the game proper as someone else with the slow burn

    but time jumpings good too :)

    Nice one Pat I like when you do these playthroughs as it gives you a good take on the game.
    It looks to be pretty good I like the atmosphere.
    What were your initial impressions of it?
    Also if its not too cheeky which difficulty level did you opt for?

    Im playing it right now and it is solid, kinda toying with the idea of putting it on easy… the only other game i had to do that with was Resistance 2… im about 2 hours in and absolutley loving it, this is the best new game ive played in a while. Get it, get it now…

    maybe you’re playing it too much like a shooter, its meant to be pretty hard going if you are running around shooting everything, i think the difficulty is meant as conditioning to get you to start using stealth and just bypassing some enemies altogether

    yeh ive had the flash light off ducking in corners and shit but some fights are unavoidable, as soon as they dog things see you they howl for more and next thing you got 7 or 8 trying to eat you, its hardcore lol

    Its a masterpiece and more i play it, more i want to fuck IGN reviewer face. Whats was his reasion behind that review? Hate for Ukrainian-Russian devs or what? Its absolutely masterpiece. Its a technically masterpiece wirh Direct X10-11. Story? Its a copy paste of one of the best Gluhovsky books.

    Just one question: Why?

    Do the towel trick it actually works for about a week and a half.

    Take the hd off wrap 3 towels around it for 35 to 40 minutes take towels off and turn off for 15 to 20 minutes and wolla youre done.

    Then when you finish game bring it down to game stop and trade it in against new arcade it should only cost you about 70 Euro.

    Yeah I did the ‘towel trick’ and its working now.
    Even without the HDD, if I plan on trading it in, they would take it?

    I am still under warranty atleast for having the RROD so I was just thinking to send it off to MS for it first thing Monday. And just play the shit out of it for the weekend.

    Shit having done the towel trick im not to sure about that sorry.
    If PT is reading maybe he will confirm.
    Yes without the hard drive You will only have to pay that.
    Just hook it up to your new arcade when you get it.

    I worked for MS and saw how they repaired they don’t actually check to see if the system is malfunctioning, they just look at the service order and if it says RROD they fix it right there not actually checking to see if the customer is telling the truth would take too much of their time.

    Yeah phoenix thinking about it once you have not opened it they have no way of knowing.
    Just wait till it red rings again and give them a call.
    You could get a month out of it or less.
