Metro 2033 is an action-oriented video game with a combination of survival horror and first-person shooter elements. The game is based on the novel Metro 2033 by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. It was developed by 4A Games in the Ukraine. The game is played from the perspective of a character named Artyom. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic Moscow, mostly inside the metro station where the player’s character was raised (he was born before the war, in an unharmed city), but occasionally the player has to go above ground on certain missions and scavenge for valuables.
This is another extremely demanding game. Image quality settings were raised to ‘Very High’ quality with 4x AA and 16x AF. We turned off PhysX and DOF (Depth of Field) for benchmarking.
Benchmark Results: Metro 2033 had the ASUS ARES II up on top again, followed by the AMD Radeon HD 7990 and then the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690. There was a 22% performance advantage to running the AMD Radeon HD 7990 over the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 in this benchmark at 2560×1600.
