Voice acting is slightly better, Characters are definitely a low point and I hate how they've changed from 2033. I pretty much hate everyone except for the child. And Ranger mode (which I always played in 2033) is borderline broken in this game. I also hate how ammo is EVERYWHERE yet you have an ammo cap that chokes you every turn, constantly leaving you unable to scavenge most of the time. But it looks amazing, even on consoles, its shooting mechanics are much smoother, it's much spookier and atmospheric, new enemies are great additions, and it has just so many great moments. It improved on almost every flaw of Metro 2033, but introduced a few of its own. It's still one of my favorite games, but it could still use a bit of work in a few areas. High highs, low lows.
