So imagine nuclear apocalypse, you imagined Fallout didn't you? Well no, I am talking about Metro 2033. A nuclear reality simulator BECAUSE IT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE!
So the game revolves around your character Artyom, whose last name is unknown and he loses a friend of his father and decides he is going to play ranger for a while and takes his revolver and joins a caravan heading towards Riga, after that a lot of stuff happens and he gets to save or destroy the world in essence. Sound like fun? You bet your arse it does
Ok so boring stuff out of the way. The gaming mechanics of this game are simply beautiful. This is hit straight home with the tutorial level, you have a gun, very little ammo, a homemade knife and that is about it. The enemies you fight are rather hard to kill, you are put in a situation where you are unsure if you live or die. Then you go back in time, brilliant, gets you into the thick of the action and pulls you out to get there yourself, very effective technique
