Metro 2033: Behind the ESRB’s Mature Rating

Metro2033a

Another little nugget on twitter was that Metro 2033 has a mature rating, due to Violence, Sex, Nudity, Strong Language, Drugs, etc.

Apparently in the game, there will be prostitutes who will obviously have their little way of speaking to potential clients. And the player can choose to follow her in to her room, and give her the money, but that this will be interrupted by an event in the game.

I don’t quite get what they mean. I think it’s like just as they're about to get it on, there’s some spectacular happening that means the player’s undivided attention. I hope he got his money back. So from this, they say that he encounters a prostitute (as in one), so it may not actually be like GTA where they’re all over the place, and you can beat them to death afterwards (to get your money back).

As for the violence, there will be blood, and it can stain floors and walls and the player’s visor (the characters tend to wear gas masks and that sort of thing).

The characters also swear in the course of the game.

There’s even a sequence in the game where the player can take drugs. He’s able to use a hookah, and then experience the effects of the drug.

This sounds even more authentic than S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Oh, on that note, the developers would like you to know that this game is nothing like S.T.A.L.K.E.R., seeing as it’s not an open world romp, but a “tight, cinematic, scripted experience”. It’s been compared to games like Call of Duty or BioShock as far as play-style and gameplay are concerned, just with a little bit of trading involved. They would also like you to know that the game does not use the same engine as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (X-ray), but possibly a derivative of it. (No, it doesn’t! Damn it! – 4A Games)

In any case, the game is based on the cult novel by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, also titled Metro 2033 (which has a sequel in Metro 2034). Apparently Metro 2033, the novel, is getting an English translation soon.

Metro 2033, the game, should be out next month, on PC and Xbox 360 (no PS3), on the 16th or March in North America, and the 19th in the United Kingdom.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
