FeatureRichard Garfield: King of the cards

A rare meeting with Magic's reclusive creator.

Metro 2033 is not a game that deserves a sequel. Too often the game stumbles in its quest to combine elements of shooter, stealth and horror, never confident enough in any one category. The story demands no clear continuation.
