I have same problem found this while searching ,do you have ati card btw ? A simple check before loading this physicsX crap would be enough for ati users

copy the dll files from C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common
to the root of C:\Windows\system

Edit : I can confirm solution still works or worked for me

go to C;/program files/steam/steamapps/common/metro2033/install from there click on the physix , its going to uninstall it, then imediatly after it installs, reinstall the phisx. after it properly installs restart steam then load the game. hope it works for you :D

Copying DLL Files solved my problem.
It's better to copy all DLL files from C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Metro 2033 (where metro 2033 instalation is ) to make this fix local or else other games may use your copied dll files every time you run the game and not the updated one.
