Don't bother buying it
Unless you are a masochist. This game is just ridiculous. If you wanna die 50 times each level go ahead and buy this crap. This is like super meatboy, the shooter. So if you enjoy sticking needles in your eyeballs you surely will enjoy this as well.

Im sorry you feel this way, but the game is not ment for all people whith out the certain skill set required, and if you die like 50 times each level, then you dont know how the game goes, or has to be played, this is nothing like super meat boy, so give it a chance, and maybe lower the difficulty, if it is to hard, other than that, watch walk throughs or just try every way you can think of, other than that please dont discourage other gamers, from this series, or game genra

Wait until you make it to the blobs. Single player games usually don't me rage quit, but the blobs did multiple times.

This game is about stealth in the sections where there are humans. When there are mutants you can go guns blazing but if you do it in the levels with humans you will die.

you can adjust the difficulty without starting a new game, so i really don't see your point here.
fighting against monsters: try keeping them at range, always make sure you have a lot of ammo, especially in ranger mode
fighting humans: always use cover, only stick your head out to fire a few bursts and get back in cover to regenerate/heal immedatly

So because you aren't good at a game it sucks? Tens of thousands of people if not more have played this game and died but they learned the game over time and became good at it. The same goes for any other game you play - practice makes you better. Not everyone is going to be good at every game, so with that in mind you should either practice more and enjoy the game or just not play it anymore. Regardless of what you do you shouldn't be on here saying a game is bad when it really isn't because someone may come to these forums looking for information and your ignorant comment might turn them away from a great game.

The Game is not worth trying to get better because it has zero replay value. The story sucks and it is 6 hours of gametime max. Stealth is broken and besides you get the good weapons before the last mission. The gasmask part forces you to rush through a game that is already too short and is very annoying.

I just try to warn people.

The game does have replay value to me. I spent 350 hours on this game and I enjoyed every minute of it. The first time I played this game it took me about 9 or 10 hours to get through it so whoever told you they beat it in 6 hours has either played it multiple times or if it was their first time through they just plowed through the game and didn't go out of their way to explore or do anything off the beaten path. Stealth in this game is not broken. I beat the game many times using only stealth in the areas it was possible. When there are mutants you can't always use stealth because they come charging at you. As a matter of fact I beat this game using only throwing knives save for a couple parts that are impossible to do without them. I don't understand what you mean by the good weapons. There are many weapons in this game that are good. If you don't know what you're doing it may seem like the guns aren't working for you. I never had any trouble with running out of filters in this game and I play on Ranger Hardcore and they give you less time on the filters then regular difficulties. I was always able to search everywhere and get everything when I was using the gas mask.

i'm playing ranger easy (first playthrough) and filters really don't seem to be the problem... and i always take my sweet time exploring!

it just seems more and more like you only make things up, because you're frustrated

Wow, since you only play metro 1 and 2 and play for hundreds of hours i can say you sir are a massive maniac fanboy so your opinion doesn't matter.

Dont buy the game because it's hard is what you're basically saying. What do you want, god mode? It's just a challenge thats all. I personally won't let a game beat me. Man up and grow a set.

I love challenging games. Dark Souls, the Metro series, etc. This game forces you to formulate effective tactics, a skill that some people don't possess. It adds a level realism that immerses you into the game.

I think metro 2033 and last light are amazing games that require you to not be a ♥♥♥♥♥ and not run past ammo. you need to look everywhere and when you have ammo and stuff you will enjoy(if you like easy XD)but i like it on ranger mode which is great and even more fun in my view with filters running out and ammo scarce so your on edge the whole time.

The game is amazing, I played from normal to the hardest difficulty and it's fine.
The fact that you despise the game because you're too stupid to figure out how to play is not a reasonable thing to do. not even sorry for you, you sound like an arrogant person

(Notice my name) This game is very fun, i beat it about 3 times and it was very exciting. It does take skill to play, its not your average call of duty game(thank god). You just have to "get into it"
