Metro 2033 is an action-oriented video game with a combination of survival horror and first-person shooter elements. The game is 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. In March 2006, 4A Games announced a partnership with Glukhovsky to collaborate on the game. The game was announced at the 2009 Games Convention in Leipzig; a first trailer came along with the announcement. A sequel was announced, currently titled Metro: Last Light.
Metro 2033 is a really intensive engine and we've got some interesting results. At the less intensive resolutions we can see a slight gain in performance. Not the kind of numbers we've seen from the other games, though.
What's interesting is that we again see a negative impact at the highest resolution where the extra FPS is needed as both cards struggle to hit that 60 FPS mark.
