Is Metro 2033 scary? Apr. 12th, 2010 @ 03:09 PM Reply

Hey, just wanted to ask. I've seen some youtube videos and I haven't completely made up my mind.. the game, is it scary in terms of something jumps on you and you get random scary flashbacks like F.E.A.R. or is it just creepy atmosphere but it's fine? I mean if I got scared at parts in Fallout 3 is this for me? :x Also, are you always with a team or you're sometimes alone? If you're with a team it's okay..

I'd recommend.

Can you explain why Metro2033 is shit and a ripoff of Stalker? If anything Stalker is a ripoff of Metro2033.

Metro2033 was based off of an actual book. I love the game.

It was REALLY freaky, almost Silent Hill-like.

At one point, your companion goes close to you, and blood starts leaking from his mouth. He falls, and a huge spider is on his back. The spider jumps on your face and starts killing you. Suddenly, you see a quick flash of what I think was a face with no skin, and the dream sequence or whatever it is ends. It's like the TP interlopers scene on a shitload of steroids.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was also based off of a movie (or book, can't remember).
So, like bunnies said, it's just opinion.

And was Metro 2033 not based off of Nuclear apocalypse? An idea dating from the Cold War?

But its still opinions

Didn't the same guys who made S.T.A.L.K.E.R. make Metro 2033? So... they're ripping themselves off? Hunh...

Anyway, the game has some tense atmosphere, and there are plenty of parts where you are alone. But really, it's not a scary game.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R is based on a 1979 film which is based on a 1972 novel.

Metro 2033 is based on a 2005 novel.

Regardless of source material, each game plays very differently. It's apples and oranges.

Maybe you should consider growing a pair and not getting scared over video games, especially one like Fallout 3 where you have nearly god-like power by the end.

No, because there have been plenty of post-apocalyptic settings before Fallout came about. Mad Max for example.

How?

All that happened was that we learnt the source of Stalker and got more opinions.

The best you managed was a derail that was still within topic.

Honestly, judging by the game, I'd give it a miss. If you want a scare, there are likely A LOT better games. If you want a Russian post-apocolyptic game...Well...I'm going to actually have to say S.T.AL.K.E.R. may be up your street since it's a little more free-roaming. I'm not saying that automatically free-roaming is better than linear paths, but judging by what I heard about Metro 2033, I wouldn't buy it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl (2007)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky (2008)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (2009)
and СÑ'алкеÑEU (STALKER) (the movie) (1979)
are based on BOOK called " Roadside Picnic " (1972)

and the METRO 2033: The Last Refuge (2010) is based on novel Metro 2033 (2005 in Russia , 2010 in USA)

Metro 2033 and Stalker are really DIFFERENT.
The Metro universe is set around a nuclear war between Russia and an unknown amount of other countries. The surface of Moscow is heavily irradiated and is crawling with a number of different mutated creatures. Humanity has retreated into the Moscow Metro, where they have lived for several years in fear of their lives, as even more, dangerous mutants threaten their lives. The main series revolves around the two main protagonists, Artyom and Hunter, who both face huge obstacles in their quest to save the Metro.

Stalker movie -
Stalker (Russian: СÑ'алкеÑEU; IPA: [Ë^stÉ'lkʲɪr]) is a 1979 science fiction art film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, with a screenplay written by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky, loosely based on their novel Roadside Picnic. It depicts an expedition led by the Stalker to bring his two clients to a site known as the Zone, which has the supposed potential to fulfill a person's innermost desires.
The title of the film, which is the same in Russian and English, is derived from the English word to stalk in the long-standing meaning of approaching furtively, much like a hunter. In the film a stalker is a professional guide to the zone, someone who crosses the border into the forbidden zone with a specific goal.[3] The word was actually coined[citation needed] by the Strugatsky brothers for their novel "Roadside Picnic" (1972), as an allusion to Rudyard Kipling's character Stalky from the "Stalky & Co." stories. СÑ'алки (stálki) was well remembered by the Strugatskys from their childhood, when they read the stories in Russian translation. In the "Roadside Picnic", ÑÑ'алкеÑEU was a common nickname for men engaged in the illegal trade of prospecting for and smuggling of alien artifacts from the mysterious and dangerous "Zone".

Stalker games -
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a series of first-person shooter video games with horror elements, developed by Ukrainian video game developer GSC Game World for Microsoft Windows. The games are set in the area surrounding the Chernobyl accident site, called âEU~The ZoneâEUTM, in an alternative reality where a second explosion occurs at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant occurred in the near future and caused strange changes in the area around it.
The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games all take place in "The Zone", and each follow the story of a different protagonist in the area. Each of these characters are S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s - "Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers, Robbers".[1] and as a result are used to the horrors of "The Zone".
Each of the games share a common trait in terms of plot; the story changes depending on the choices that the player makes. For the purpose of efficiently summarizing the plot, this article will assume that the 'optimal' choices were picked during gameplay.

Metro 2033 was not very scary, though there are parts that make you want to get out as soon as possible because of the threats in the area.
It is a great game.


Yeah, whatever.

Not really scary, but I'd say it's pretty atmospheric.

So, how good is Metro, really? It looks interesting, but are there any downsides to it?

Also, why is Stalker still not ported to X Box 360? And why isn't Crysis, for that matter, when Crysis 2 is?

I think its because crysis and stalker are very "stiff" "keyboard necessary" PC games.

basically if you ported those games to xbox, people would think they were broken.

I suppose it's just lack of interest lately, but anyone can make the game work on a console, even though STALKER is, whats you say a "stiff keyboard necessary game", they can probably make it work on a console. And Crysis is available on Xbox.
