Part first person shooter, part survival horror, Metro 2033 is based on the novel of the same name, written by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. You play as Artyom in a post-apocalyptic Moscow, where you'll spend most of your time traversing the metro system, with occasional trips to the surface. Despite the dark atmosphere and bleak future for mankind, the visuals are anything but bleak. Powered by the 4A Engine, with support for DirectX 11, NVIDIA Physx and NVIDIA 3D Vision, the tunnels are extremely varied - in your travels, you'll come across human outposts, bandit settlements, and even half-eaten corpses. Ensuring you feel all the tension, there is no map and no health meter. Get lost without enough gas mask filters and adrenaline shots and you may soon wind up as one of those half-eaten corpses - chewed up by some horrifying manner of irradiated beast that hides in the shadows just waiting for some hapless soul to wander by.

 

Settings:

  • DX 11
  • AAA
  • 16xAF

The HD 68XX series from Sapphire, XFX and PowerColor show an increase in performance over the 58XX series at the higher resolutions.  The factory overclocked nature of the GTX 470 and GTX 460 maintains an advantage against the 68XX series. However, if you put them all on an even playing field and run at each card's maximum clock speed, then the 6870 and 6850 are stronger in the midrange than the GTX 460.
