Metro: Last Light Redux review

  • Conclusion: Still as atmospheric and impressively grim as it was last year, but inessential if you have the original.

Metro: Last Light Redux

Strategy Informer
1 week ago
  • Conclusion: I realise all these caveats render a scored review somewhat meaningless, so the takeaway message is this; if you've never played Last Light , you should – it's an excellent game, and you should opt for this version. If you've already played it, however, you don't need to upgrade.

Metro: Last Light Review, Much More than Blasting Mutants in the Subway

3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Metro: Last Light is the successor to the critically acclaimed Metro 2033, developed by 4A games and published by Deep Silver. Metro: Last Light is once again set in the same dark, post apocalyptic world as the last.  The world has been devastated by an all-out nuclear war and humanity now survives thanks to the refuge the metro system below Moscow offers.

Metro: Last Light Review

maximum pc
31 October 2013
  • Excerpt: When Metro 2033 came out about three years ago, it didn’t make much of a splash at first. The name and cover art didn’t explain much, and its publisher did not have a Call of Duty–size ad budget. By the time we understood that it was set in a post-apocalyptic Moscow where everyone had to live underground (to avoid radiation sickness and hideously mutated beasties), Metro 2033’s moment had passed.
  • Pros: Densely packed environment and narrative; entertaining combat; high-caliber visuals.
  • Cons: AI is occasionally dumb; curiously abundant resources; DLC confusion.

Metro: Last Light – Faction Pack

Thunderbolt Games
16 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Metro: Last Light fell short of greatness. A follow up to 2010’s Metro 2033 , this was the rare occasion when a sequel had room to improve upon a concept and execution rather than cynically milk what made it special into a possible franchise. It came close to doing so but in the end lacked the conviction to fully realise Dmitry Glukhovsky‘s fictional world in an interactive form.

How the pretty good Faction Pack for Metro Last Light falls apart

2 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I love the guns in the Metro games. Awkward, ruthless, post-apocalyptic testaments to the harsh reality of scavenging. Namely, that a good gun isn’t a pretty gun. These so-ugly-they’re-beautiful Frankenstein firearms are the most memorable weapons you’ll find this side of your Borderlands locker.

Review: Metro: Last Light

Everyday Gamers
28 July 2013
  • Summary: Metro: Last Light is an absolutely fantastic game that does a great job making the player feel as if they are a part of its world. It’s amazing that such a complete polished product came from a developer that had a budget about a tenth the size of what the typical western shooter has to work with. It may have its quirks, but more often than not they add to the character of the game instead of detracting from the fun.
  • Pros: Does a terrific job creating a creepy atmosphere, Interesting survival game mechanics
  • Cons: Playing stealthy can feel awkward, A few too many monsters

(PC Review) Metro: Last Light – Faction Pack

The Entertainment Depot
19 July 2013
  • Summary: Faction Pack bodes well for the remaining upcoming downloadable content planned for Metro: Last Light . Although the three missions are all great in theory, offering a nice array of combat and objective types, they are not all winners; however, it’s priced right ($4.99) and offers a few solid hours of gameplay.

Metro: Last Light PC Review

16 June 2013
  • Summary: Creating an FPS with an engaging story has always seemed like an afterthought in recent years.  In a world of big budget games using forced perspective to show off the latest technologies with little relevance or substance, Last Light stands alone. In lieu of rushing the player through explosions and firefights, 4A gives players a chance to side by the figurative water and watch the painful gears of society turn in spite of near extinction.
