Play Metro Redux! Here's 5 reasons why...

Metro Redux combines both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, rebuilt and remastered for the next generation. If you didn't play the first game, Metro 2033 is a survival horror first-person shooter based on the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It was developed by 4A Games in Ukraine and released in March 2010 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360.

Metro 2033 was a great game that was under-appreciated upon its release. But with improved graphics and improved features, Metro Redux is sure to get some attention. Hey, I'm already planning on streaming it. Prima Games has 5 reasons why you'll want to play Metro Redux:

1. Being able to play the under appreciated Metro 2033

When Metro 2033 originally came out for Xbox 360, it found a great core audience, but not nearly as big as it deserved. THQ, at the time, didn't give it the kind of promotional push it needed to be ultimately successful, although word of mouth helped it sell. Even though it wasn't your typical first-person shooter, with its limited ammunition, it became a fun cult classic.

In Redux, the ultimate version of 2033 is available, complete with a number of new options, should you not want to go the survival route. We'll cover this a little later on in the article.

PlayStation owners missed Metro because it was an Xbox 360 exclusive, so this is your chance to rediscover it again.

2. The apocalyptic presentation has never looked better

Metro Redux feels right at home on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (as well as PC), and 4A Games went all out to make sure both games look better than ever.

With a 60 frames per second speed (even during the more intense gun battles with creatures and soldiers), improved lighting effects and more details than ever before, Metro Redux looks great across the board, even though the PlayStation 4 and PC versions support 1080p while Xbox One supports 900p. A small technicality, unless you have a really, really large TV, we assure you. 1

It's startling what kind of a difference 4A's new graphic engine made for this game, and you'll be able to see for yourself starting this Tuesday.
