*NEW* Metro 2033 For PC - £5.00 Delivered @ Play

exofury Avatar
5y, 9m agoFound 5 years, 9 months ago
Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.

In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth's surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.

Next best price New is £8.59 @ Amazon UK

i love this game, iv bought the book
#2
It's VERY impressive on PC, which I believe was the platform the developers focussed on. It's still only DX10, not 11, and even on less than full power the graphics are pretty outstanding. Was a pleasant surprise.
#3
Thanks :D
#4
ordered and heat added, many thanks

Minimum system requirements

* Dual core CPU (any Core 2 Duo or better will do)
* DirectX 9, Shader Model 3 compliant graphics cards (GeForce 8800, GeForce GT220 and above)
* 1GB RAM

Recommended System Requirements:

* Any Quad Core or 3.0+ GHz Dual Core CPU
* DirectX 10 compliant graphics card (GeForce GTX 260 and above)
* 2GB RAM

Optimum System Requirements:

* Core i7 CPU
* NVIDIA DirectX 11 compliant graphics card (GeForce GTX 480 and 470)
* As much RAM as possible (8GB+)
* Fast HDD or SSD

My machine will scrape in at the lower end. I'm tempted to give it a go at this price.
#6
I ordered via TCB, cheers
#7
i7 950, SSD, 12GB & two GTX 580s, shouldn't have too much trouble
#8
Xbox 360 controller support?

last PC game I bought was Bioshock 2................ enough said!
#9
Good spot, Been deliberating over getting this for a while at a higher price, at £5 it's an offer I couldn't refuse!

Ordered, heat added.

Not true. This one of the first games which utilize DX11.
Graphics is indeed nice, but requires huge GPU processing power to get it running properly on max settings.

looks as if controller support is in there.

I bought this a while ago and I must say it feels like a console game from a gameplay point of view. Very linear. I understand the developers were on the STALKER team, if so they've certainly sorted the graphics, but the gameplay isn't as good.

But for £5...

Thanks for the heads up, been thinking about buying this for a while.
And for a fiver, lets go for it, cheers.
#14
It can also be activated on Steam so patches and stuff like that can be done the easy way.

I'm seriously considering this one.

The game may cost £5, but you need to spend another £1500 on a PC that will run it smoothly!

Not really a bargain then is it?

£1500 - What rot.
Bargain - yes

£1500 - What rot.
Bargain - yes


Actually, many people spend twice as much as this on a PC every few years just to be able to play the latest games. Although, I am not one of them as I don't fall for the marketing ploys. I just play older games until the hardware comes down in price, then buy the games with ridiculously high requirements a year or so later.

Nvidia/ ATI/ Intel are known for paying the developers of graphics intensive games to incorporate all the latest features. Which is why the developers can sell the game cheap. Nvidia/ ATI/ Intel then benefit by people being forced to upgrade all their hardware just to play the game they thought was a good deal! They get you to spend just £5-10 for the game, knowing you'll be so desperate to play it that you'll spend another £1500 on hardware. (Just Cause 2 is another example, just £5 to buy.)

****, you can have a very capable PC for £700-800 and it will be able to play the games at twice the resolution that any console does. Most people won't spend anywhere near as much when they build their PCs themselves. Spending that every 2 years is usual but bear in mind that you get more than a half back from selling things second-hand and you only really need to upgrade CPU every 3-4 years and graphics card every 1.5-2 years to be able to play all recent titles. That drives the upgrade costs down to some £100-150 a year which isn't that bad at all.

Most PC gamers want graphics cards manufacturers to support games developers as it's the only way the technology progresses. Otherwise those companies would not have to force their games to push the hardware to their limits making mainstream PC market mainly dependent on console games. What you get is the ability to test the latest technology before its implemented on a larger scale. If you don't want that, you can always stick to one of the two last generations of the graphics cards - they usually are capable of playing the recent titles.

There's a handful of games that are CPU dependent (mostly simulators) - those are aimed at enthusiasts.

Metro 2033 works fine if you disable tessellation (that doesn't do much good in the game anyway) and DoF (that is annoying for most). It is arguably the best looking PC game ever and is very graphics card dependent.

Aye it's currently the top stress benchmarker for anything DX11, if you have the rig to run it maxed, (I have) then it's superb looking, reminded me of Stalker in the concept, although I found gun battles quite clumsy.

You're joking! right?.
#20
Very good game.
#21
Class game, and my hardware is roughly 2-3 years old and played great. (q6600 + 8800gts 512). Loads a carp being said about hardware in this thread.
#22
I loved this game, it has no MP side to it but the SP imo was very atmospheric and captivating.
#23
pretty good reviews this, shame it didnt sell overly well.
#24
you can build a pc to run this as good as any console if not better for £300 or less
as long as you dont want this years latest graphix card or processor

you end up with a pc which can easily play games at a fair setting and can do so much more than a console

to top that off if you buy a console ,every game you buy costs at least £10 more than on the pc

so once you buy 10 games your pc costs less than a console

but one tip if your going to get a pc dont go to pc world they spend money on the outside of your pc

but its the inside you need to spend your money

i7 950, SSD, 12GB & two GTX 580s, shouldn't have too much trouble

Nice way to waste £400 on an extra graphics card all for a bit of extra Epeen. Your CPU will bottleneck that SLI set up all day long. Would have been better to spend the £400 on a i7-2600k sandybridge and motherboard with 4gb ram and a single 580 imo. If your hitting over 60fps on a 60hz display the rest is wasted. Great deal on the game however so heat added :)

Thanks exofury, we reckon this was one of the most underrated games of last year. We've featured this deal at Dealspwn, HUKD's gaming blog.

It has a very Stalker-ish feel which is quite odd (aside from the Russian Source material and development) - Stalker is very open-world but the plot and environments in Metro are relatively linear, so the the two shoudl be worlds apart ...

Anyone going SLI with the high end cards is most likely to overclock, i7 950 is a very capable PC and SandyBridge wouldn't outclass it by much if both are overclocked (even though the difference is there). i7 2600k is a waste on a gaming machine too, HT is not necessary in any games known to me.

Someone running SLI GTX580s will probably spend his money on a high resolution screen, say 30" Dell at 2560x1600. Apply 16xAA and this setup would be a necessity to play the most demanding games. With that said, you could easily drive the costs down by just getting i5 2500k and overclocking it to 4.6-5GHz (depending on the cooling) and pairing it with GTX570 or Radeon 6950 (with unlocked shaders). That would easily cope with any modern games at 1920x1200.

inb4 Crysis 2 - this game is just a weak console port. Don't expect it to stress any machine beyond its capabilities.
