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.
Like we've seen out of a couple of benchmarks we can see that while the HD 7850 just fell shy of that 60 FPS mark at 1920 x 1200, its big brother the HD 7870 doesn't have any problem. Overall we can see that performance sits pretty close to the GTX 580 with just one FPS separating the cards at the lower resolutions.
