Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.
In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.
The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.
You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.

This game is well optimized for Nvidia and seems to like high IPC Intel CPUs… Also, 4 GB RAM is enough to max this game… You should be running this maxed out no problem at 60+ fps with spersampling (with it, fps will be lower)…

This game is insanely demanding. I dropped below 30 fps in the outdoor area in the beginning when all the monsters are running around, and I only had the video settings on Normal.

Hello,


game is certainly demanding but dropped below 30 FPS? It didn't happen to me with GTX 660 on High settings. Maybe did something clashed with your game that FPS dropped below 30.


Karibes


PS: Oh right, you played it at 1920x1080 whereas I played at 1680x1050… Meh, it certainly makes difference…

Your CPU and GPU should normally manage low at 1280x720… But your RAM may be a problem… Not really sure if this game will run on only 1 GB… I think 2 GB is minimum…

I would say no, I got a laptop with GT630m 2gb and it's just handle low and 1280x720 with average FPS of 40

Dude, I just bought this game from Sapna stores and am running it on HD 4000… If HD 4000 can run it, then 9500 GT which is slightly stronger should have no trouble… Oh and it is no surprise that GT 630M manages only low at 720p with 40 fps - most benchmarks show similar results… For medium in this game you need something like GT 645M …

Medium at 1280x720 or 1366x768… Not sure about fps… It can vary wildly in this game as optimization is nuts… But it should stay at 35 on average…
