        The original is an old game and THAT makes my 570 sad (and still looks really damn good).

      I felt the original Metro didn't give you a lot of bang for buck in terms of amazing visuals for the steep hardware requirements, so I am not really looking forward to the new one yet.

        Seriously? Everything in 2033 was directed towards creating atmosphere. Fog/smoke was everywhere, shaders were heavily used (i.e., used on pipes to create the illusion of condensation), the lighting was wonderful... I dunno mang. If you didn't see it for yourself you might not have been looking hard enough.
