    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.

    A new way to experience two of the greatest last generation FPS on the New Generation of consoles and PC. Great value.

    Metro Redux has a great remastered version of Metro 2033 and the most complete Metro Last Light pack. Improved mechanics and great visuals make for a solid pack of two old-school shooters.

    If you have never played the games, then this is outstanding value for money for two great first-person shooters with an amazing setting, brilliant atmosphere, fantastic graphics and solid gun combat.

    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.

    Ok let me start with this. Some people may don't like the new 2033 because it's kinda easier (depends on difficulty level), and less scarier, but anything else is really better than original one. Graphic, gameplay, really the engine from LL does his job very good. Also those games feel great when playing with Russian dubbing, for me it fits the game really well. The fps are stable (on my pc 40-60 on high), the game looks great and again it is worth buying. Expand

    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

    The game looks amazing I usually dont buy hd remakes of games but this is worth every penny. 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. 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.

    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

    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.
