In the atmosphere of its predecessor, Metro felt chilling and gritty, making missions claustrophobic and tense. The latest installment in the series doesn't fail to reach that tone, but in fact makes it more gritty and more often can find you on the edge of your seat. At the beginning it may seem as though Metro is putting you into the over used routine of grab a gun and fight a monster, which often times makes the players attention drift off at first, but once entering in to the action, the setting starts to seep in to more of your emotions. Many times the mechanics of the game start to feel doll and over used, but are easy to get passed. Story wise the emotions of the characters can draw you in, but soon after you are left wondering what it all comes to redeem. Sadly the rewards in this game seem to be nowhere around the corner story wise, but the combat may draw you in if you like the atmosphere and fps mechanics.
