    Metro Redux is the perfect entry point for series newcomers as it combines two of the best shooters in recent times in a remastered collection. In addition, series fans are in for a huge treat with the remastered Metro 2033 and Last Light games for replaying their favorite moments with improved gameplay and visuals. Metro Redux is far more than a high definition update, it's a truly remastered and definite experience.

    I'm not a fan of a current trend to remake and remaster last generation games, but the things that have been done to (especially) Metro 2033 are really impressive. If you had fun playing original Metro games, Redux will deliver at least the same amount of satisfaction. If you're new to the Metro universe, now is the best time to check it out.

    The Moscow Metro opens its gates again, and the young Artyom embarks on a dangerous journey to preserve last remnants of the human race. Suppose you have killed off all the demons, and completed the almost educational path through the Moscow underground. Maybe. But certainly not in such a beautiful and technically seamless form that Redux version offers. Moreover, your first underground visit may not have been a complete one, because Metro is not the game series that makes you to look forward to seeing every new DLC. Or maybe you belong to the owners of new consoles, therefore the Metro Redux purchase is rather a must for you.

    A vastly improved Metro 2033 is more than enough to give a meaning to Metro Redux.

    A bit on the pricey side, Metro Redux is nevertheless a meaningful remake of Metro 2033 with the added value of its successor Last Light including all its – albeit mediocre – DLC. The graphics are simply spectacular, the atmosphere is great and the AI tends to be horrible, just like before.

    If you have never gotten around to giving the Metro-series a chance, then this is a perfect package. Metro 2033 has aged considerably despite the numerous changes, but is a fine prologue to Last Light; a rancid, brutal game, teetering on the edge of depressing; a Russian cocktail consisting of one part The Last of Us and one part Fallout 3. [Aug 2014, p.62]

    With Metro Redux, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are back on PC with some graphical improvements, all the DLCs so far published and the Survival game mode, which has certainly moved both titles into hardcore gameplay.

    The Metro series takes place decades after a nuclear strike on Moscow. Survivors populate the underground train system, giant spiders skittle through the tunnels and an unknown threat is beginning to emerge. You play as Artyom, a young man given a mission that will see him attempt to save humanity.

    That’s the set-up for the first game; Metro 2033. Of the two titles it’s the one that has gained the most from 4A Games’ revisit. Where the original was muddy and blurry, the Redux version is quite dramatically lighter and more detailed, helping players to feel as if they’re inhabiting this bleak dystopia.

    Similarly, the four year-old game has also gained from a bunch of new gameplay additions. The control scheme has been brought into line with Last Light, the UI has been revised and weapon customisation has been added, along with a few other major changes.

    A perfect mix of Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light. Much better optimization (I get better frames on redux than the original 2033), weapon customization in 2033 and many more tweaks and improvements. Expand

    Metro 2033 Redux is an honest to goodness, genuine remaster. A collection of tweaks and polishes, do-overs and rejigs that elevates the game to even greater heights, this is a full visual revamp that brings it in line with Last Light in terms of graphical tech.

    If you haven’t played Metro 2033 before, this will now be the best place to start. It’s post-apocalyptic FPSing at its finest, with a uniquely grim backdrop and appropriately negative portrayal of mankind in the midst of that. The premise of Metro is that the surface of Earth is scorched and irradiated, so the people of Moscow live within the tunnels of the metro (hey, that’s the name of the game!) while the Dark Ones above their heads plot against them.

    I did play both original Metro's on console and in pc, on console I must say that 2033 looked crapy, but now even for a pc, the game looks amazing. Nothing is done wrong, Metro is after all given what Dimity's story deserves. A4 did an amazing good looking game with a awesome game play. Both redux games are worth getting. Expand

    If you haven't played the Metro games, now is the time. They are some of the best FPS games on the market. The Redux has made the game look better, but at the cost of it, that, the lighting is more based around light than dark, as the originals where.
    The gameplay has been improved as-well. There are some tweaks to make it into a more of an action game in 2033, but this can be turned off to make it into a stealth based game in the options. The game runs a lot better on PC, too.
    The new voices are a lot worse, and the faces all look quite babyish,but as I said, the game is still amazing. Pick it up

    Great graphics, great characters, great story, great remake. I highly recommend this to anyone who played the original Metro 2033. The only things that I'am unsatisfied with are the monster skins they just don't look as scary as they did in in the original Metro 2033. Prototype 2 had a similar problem with the hunter skins. Just wanted to point that out DEVELOPERS! it ruins the immersion. Expand

    Well i just purchased the game from steam expecting this new "redux" to be better optimized and tweaked, but boy i was wrong! the redux runs at 2-30 fps lower than the original metro's =, and im on a gtx 780 ti, so there should be no reason my rig cant handle the game, hell even on all normal settings i cant even get a frame-rate above 50, that's freaking hilarious, way to go on optimizing the PC version you thieves, got my refund, hope you do too.
