If you’re after a title that really shows off your Xbox’s muscle, Metro 2033 is a must-have. Set in transport tunnels where the world’s last few humansare huddling, it’s a stunning survival title that will seriously test your gaming mettle. So faithfully have the developers created a brutal world of diminished resources, every bullet counts, and everything you do – from what you can carry to what you can see – is based in reality. This makes for punishing gameplay, but persevere for a truly special experience.
