    Does your gas mask shatter if you take too many hits while wearing it in this one too? I loved that mechanic in Metro 2033, it's definitely one of the biggest ''oh shit'' moments I've ever had in a game. Regardless of how many filters, medkits, or ammo you had, nothing could prepare you for that kind of scenario :D

    I liked 2033 ---- this, me likes :D

    I've been excited for this for a while! Gotta get the first one

    Personally, I'm slightly disappointed that the ending you got in the first game has no bearing on the second - it would have been a cool opportunity for a Mass Effect style save import. But having said that, unless you checked the achievements or read some spoilers beforehand, they did a really good job of hiding the fact there were actually two paths you could take, so I bet the majority of people who played it did get the ending where you destroy the Dark Ones. Also, I always felt like the guns being underpowered in the first game was kind of deliberate - if you used the military grade ammo instead of the dirty stuff, they were much more powerful, but you obviously sacrificed your currency. It was a nice balance that pushed you towards a stealthier approach, which felt like it was supposed to be the focus. There were always the pneumatic weapons too - the pneumatic sniper rifle was BEAST.

    Yeah, it's still very much that same way, but I feel like the guns are a tad more powerful this time around. Still plenty of pneumatic weapons and the like :D

    Essentially, it's... Exactly like Metro 2033 with some elbow grease. Sounds awesome to me, even though I liked the flaky guns.
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - March 21, 2013 8:59 a.m.

    Aye; Metro 2033, but with improvements to all the things people complained about ^_^

    After the ranger diffiulty update, I felt everything seemed perfect on metro 2033. Did you get to play on those modes?

    I haven't played 2033 yet, so one thing I'm concerned about is getting to a spot in the game where I don't have enough bullets or enough filters or whatever to advance. How do you save your game and how likely is it that you will save yourself into a tough spot and not be able to keep playing because you lack the necessary resources?

    Never really happens. You always have a knife, and you get good at choosing your shots. The only real thing that hampered your progress in Metro 2033 was the incredibly challenging stealth levels, which happen more frequently than you'd like. If you aren't apposed to it, using a walk-through for those levels will keep you from completely giving up. The way isn't always obvious.

    Thanks, just wanted to know what I would be getting myself into.
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - March 21, 2013 9:01 a.m.

    There are definitely times where it'll be a struggle, but it's rare to save yourself into such a bad situation that you won't be able to continue. Bloodstorm makes some pretty great points - and regardless of which way you choose to play (guns blazing or stealth), you're in for a challenge.
  • majormoses117 - March 21, 2013 11:40 a.m.

    Sounds good. Just don't want to buy something I'd end up regretting
  • winner2 - March 21, 2013 8:36 a.m.

    This sounds really cool, I'm interested. I'm glad to see a shooter that brings a new sense of urgency to fps.
