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: There is definitely a pattern starting to emerge with between the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC and the MSI GTX 660 OC. Both of the cards are taking turns leading at one resolution or another. This time around the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC leads at 1920x1080 with an average of 34.33 frames per second while the MSI GeForce GTX 660 OC leads at 1280x1024 with an average of 49.33.
