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.[3] In March 2006, 4A Games announced a partnership with Glukhovsky to collaborate on the game.[4] The game was announced at the 2009 Games Convention in Leipzig;[5] a first trailer came along with the announcement.[6] A sequel was announced, currently titled Metro: Last Light.


Metro 2033 is just another one of those super intensive games that again places a lot of pressure on GPUs thanks to its next generation features. While the game itself isn't anything to get all that excited about, a bit like the Crysis series, the technology implemented within the game make it an excellent benchmark.

While we do again see like Aliens vs. Predator the 2560 x 1600 number falls just below that 60 FPS average we like to see, across the board we've got some serious improvements when compared to the HD 6970 and GTX 580.
