    Mate of mine is pressing me to play Metro 2033, I have the original on Steam and just grabbed Redux on Epic.

    Which version should I play?

    Cheers

    The Redux is the better game.

    But the original has the heavy automatic shotgun, which turns the game from tense not-quite-horror to Serious Sam.

    Redux. I didn't actually like it originally and it wasn't very well optimised.

    I'd play Redux. It has some nice QoL improvements and is just a bit better in general. Both games are good, but I'd go for Redux personally.

    Based on this recommendation I've also picked up Redux... once I find time I'll give it a go!

    Personally loved the original, despite not being into horror/post apocalyptic stuff, and have heard the redux is basically a straight upgrade, improving on mechanics/adding mechanics from the 2nd game (some stuff around stealth for example I think)
    This thread is tempting me to try and get round to playing the redux version!
