    A lot of people thought the atmosphere was spot on while a lot of combat mechanics seemed lackluster and there were a lot of bugs. The game got mixed reviews, as it was to be expected.
    Do you agree?

    Nope. Atmosphere was indeed spot on, but I liked the combat mechanics too. Many of the mainstream critics use the modern CoD titles as the perfect example of good shooter mechanics, but I prefer FPS games that are less twitchy and even slightly "sluggish" in comparison. Metro 2033 wasn't ridiculously slow or anything, however there was a noticeable difference between its pace and that of things like Battlefield or Call of Duty (Last Light slightly reduced that difference of course). As for stability, I can't say I remember in what state the game was just after release, but I personally don't recall having any serious problems with it. Yes, there were some slight glitches, but nothing gamebreaking and the PC version was much more stable (and obviously prettier) than the Xbox 360 one.
