Loved the game and I am even happier they didn't bother putting in a multiplayer since it allowed them to focus on single player missions.

I purchased a hard copy and am thoroughly enjoying it. DX10 settings are allowing me to play at decent frame rates as DX11 with everything cranked was rather punishing on my system. Extremely immersive, excellent graphics. I like the story as well!Running MSI afterburner to monitor GPU performance while playing.

Bought Metro 2033. Not sure when I'm gonna play it yet but $25 is hard to pass on.

I might as well buy it. Although I still haven't played Borderlands which I bought when it was on sale @ Christmas....Nevertheless the other dozen small games I bought on Steam since then.

If Metro 2033 goes to $5 then I'd consider it.
