    Metro 2033 was planned to be more open world and 'STALKER-esque' according to an early design document. Artyom would have been able to cut through any number of stations on his way to Polis during which he could take up various side-quests and \\"mini-games\\". Why they decide to opt for a much more linear approach isn't too clear.It should be noted though that the developers did mention in one of their early interviews, right before Metro 2033's launch, that their engine was up to the task for c...

    After escorting a caravan to a member of the VDNKh Commonwealth, Artyom meets a man: Bourbon. In exchange for a hefty amount of cartridges and an assault rifle, Artyom promises to help Bourbon getting through several tunnels. Eventually, Artyom's travels with Bourbon come to a tragic end, when Bourbon seemingly slips into insanity and dies. Luckily for Artyom, a mysterious stranger arrives; Khan. Helping Artyom retrieve Bourbon's equipment, Artyom discovers that Bourbon never planned to pay him at all, and probably planned on killing him. After this, Khan and Artyom plan a route to Artyom's ultimate goal, Polis. They first need to gather force to travel through a strange tunnel. Eventually, Artyom goes to a fork. He could keep travelling with Khan, or he could begin traveling with the rest of the people, relying purely on numbers to fend off the tunnel's monsters. Reluctantly, he opts to go with Khan and ends up making the right decision. After making their way through the perilous...

    The novel first appeared online in 2002, but was first being written when Glukhovsky was no older than 16. First called "Underground", this version consisted only of 13 of the story's eventual 20 chapters, and ended rather abruptly with Artyom's death from a stray bullet. Undergroundwas a rather unique story in terms of maintaining a satisfyingly depressing vibe to it, but also structurally, including references to music to which each chapter was intended to be listened to. Underground didn't manage to be published however, as the publishers Glukhovsky approached either stated that the story's ending was too "edgy" or the overall premise was simply not inspiring enough. Once posted on the interne,t however, it became an interactive experiment, drawing in thousands of readers from around Russia. In 2005 it was reworked, expanded, and printed by an established publisher as Metro 2033, quickly becoming a nationwide bestseller. In 2007, Glukhovsky was awarded the Encouragement Award of...

    Despite astounding success, Metro 2033 was not without its criticisms. For starters the, book was criticized as having a sort of 'aimless' and 'empty' quality as an indirect result of a lack of large-scale world bui-ding, not that some feel that some aspects are described in far too much detail. Many complaints are about Artyom's tendency to stumble his way into danger, see or experience how dangerous it was, and then often get saved by a coincidence - which puts a lot of pressure on the finale. By the end, some feel, that the rules of the fiction's universe haven't been established well enough to get into the story, orexpanded universe. To perhaps an opposite extent, some readers and critics did not approve of all the time spent on themes of morality, religious bashing, and man's fate when the book begins to slow down near the half-way point. Similarly, though few criticize the actual ending, some critics found it to be too much of a shift from the previous vibe and it's final conc...

    While being quite original, Metro 2033 owes a lot of its finer genre points to the post-apocalyptic series that came before it. While the inspiration of Fallout's Master remain ssubtle through the...
