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:

  • DirectX 11
  • AAA
  • 16xAF
  • Global settings = High
  • Physx = off

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metro 2033 definitely "takes the cake" for the most difficult benchmark in the OCC suite — it even brings the top dogs, the HD5970 and GTX580 to their knees. The N550GTX struggles to keep up, but for what it's worth, it does well. In lower resolutions it kept a good distance between itself and its older sister, the GTS450. However, in higher resolutions, their results seem to converge.
