While there are definite plans for Stalker II (a complete re-write of the Stalker series of games) we'll be waiting for it for a while yet and Metro 2033 is a good option to keep you occupied until then.
At first glance Metro 2033 has a lot of similarities to Stalker, being released by the same publisher and written by some of the people associated with Stalker - but it isn't comparable as an apple next to an apple.
Rather than being a sandbox-world based RPG/FPS it is more of a horror-survival game with the same theme as Stalker. Missions are not open-ended as in Stalker and there is a much more scripted feel.
That being said, it is still great fun, rather difficult and the awesome graphics and ambience draws you in quickly.
There is no quick-save option so it can be a bit frustrating when you keep getting killed and you know its just before the next save-point.
I enjoyed this and look forward to Metro 2034 which is on the cards.

Game intalls then wants to update via steam.
states 2.5 days on 384 ADSL line but after using up my entire 3GB cap it claims to be only 21% done with the update!
If you cant play it it's cr*p!
Buy it if you have a lot of time on your hands and a ton of bandwidth.
Dont waste your money.Was this review helpful?

I have the new Core i7 technology and needless to say my pc is up to date. However, having spent R400 on this game and then having to download the whole game on steam is rubbish. If you dont have uncapped internet then dont buy this game as it will use all of your bandwith. You have been warned.
