From Russia with love

You're crouched in a corner clutching your AK-47 with both hands. You're down to your last magazine. Five monsters are trying to get a lock on your scent in the next room and just beyond them a group of Nazis are sitting at their sentry post waiting for movement. You should have saved some ammunition but you blew it all to buy a sniper rifle at the last outpost. Nietzschean law doesn't apply: what doesn't kill you here just makes you weaker. You want to go back but you can't: the shelter doors are locked and won't be opening again any time soon. Life in the Metro is tough - but above ground the situation's even worse.... read more

Nice score.

It's only the 2nd console exclusive so far for the 360 this year(compared to 3 or 4 on the ps3), but with mass effect 2 and now this, it seems to be quality over quantity for microsoft so far this year.

I'll wait for other reviews of this before i decide.
Maybe i'll get the pc one.

This is looking like a must buy for me, there have been far too few horror / scary Games this Gen and if this can incorporate FPS with scares and pull it off, they'll have one Fan waiting for the sequel as well.

Well done Devs!

And I wonder who that someone is :roll: :P

Loved the Stalker games (I know this is slightly different) so this has always been an essential purchase for me, although I will most probably get the PC version.

2010 is looking like another bumper year for gamers.

I'm going to fire up my 360 for this. Not going to buy it right away as it's out on the day of GOW3. Will get it soon after I finish that.

This game has a spectacular story and intense atmosphere. Excellent.

That Ebay listing is for the book.

Anyways, I'm glad I pre-ordered this game from Shopto... they're now throwing in a USB memory stick and have dropped the price by a fiver.

Wahey! \:D/

I'm pretty certain that the developer stated there wouldn't be a demo, but if it receives more scores like this I'll get it regardless.

Damn son this sounds great, I hope they port this to PS3 because I don't have an xbox and I doubt I could run it on the laptop.

Definately going to get this, but it'll have to wait till next month i think as i've already got GOW3 on preorder. Might come down a bit in price by then too. Zero advertising makes me thinkn this'll end up being a bit of a cult game. that while awesome just doesn't do the numbers it should.

Looks like I'm doing another double whammy next friday then.
If people are talking behind your back it's only because they cant talk to your face. PS3, Xbox360 Elite and Wii Owner so the lame ass "Fanboy" BS wont work on me. Do not bother!

"From Russia with love" not from Russia , from Ukraine. It's a game of Ukrainian developer team , not a Russian. I think it's quite unfair that all games that are develop on xUSSR territory named as Russian. But it's a different countries. And in our days two most-known Ukrainian games are Stalker and Metro 2033...
P.S Yes, book really was written in Russian, but not a game ...
And those who sad that metro 2033 looked like Starker, it's quite true because guys that make Metro was in a Stalker team.

the devs said they were not trying at this time they were worried about making the game good and get it out there first then if it isnt selling that well they will make one they never stated they arent making one.[/quote]
