    "I've loved this game since it came out. It's full on strategy and naval clashes. Maybe it's because i'm really into battleships and stuff but definitely one of my favorite games!!"

      "In the future, people will debate which video game was more faithful to the book more often than they debate today which movie was more faithful to the book. Metro 2033 certainly takes its liberties. For a video game, it does a fantastic job of recreating what was special about the book."

      "What can I say about Metro 2033? Awesome, just awesome. The graphics are great and the play is gripping. Clear your calendar because you are not going to want to stop anytime soon. The price is insane also. I would have expected to pay much more for a game of this caliber."

      "Metro 2033 is available on the Steam platform and is indeed based on a Russian novel. In addition, it's a very popular and well-polished game made by a reputable developer. Contains a campaign that is over 20 hours in length."

      "I was looking for games based off of novels, and since my choices were pretty slim I went with Telltale's Game of Thrones. Unfortunately the game was barely based on the books at all and was poorly written in general, I wish I could still get a refund."

      "I'm a huge GoT fan (who isn't?), and also a big gamer. So when I saw that Steam had a game based on Game of Thrones, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. Defend House Stark against their enemies? Sign me up!"
