  • 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
4 weeks 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

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.

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.

Review: Metro: Last Light beams down a memorable first-person experience

GameZone
13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: When Metro 2033 came out a few years ago, it wasn't as big a seller as any of the Call of Duty games – which is a shame, because it was far more atmospheric. It relied more on the pure grittiness of survival – especially with Ranger Mode turned on – than most first-person shooters ever will, and that's one of the things that made it stand out from the pack.

(PC Review) Metro: Last Light

The Entertainment Depot
24 May 2013
  • Summary: Metro: Last Light is a noticeable improvement over its atmospheric predecessor, Metro 2033 . Some lingering hit detection and pacing issues remain, but they are minor nuisances. In the end, Last Light is an engrossing post-apocalyptic shooter that should appeal to both action and survival-horror fans.

Metro: Last Light

  • Conclusion: As the game progressed, I felt more and more attached to Artyom and how his journey through the Metro would finish, which is a testament to the narrative, and the world it resides in.

Metro: Last Light

Strategy Informer
16 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Metro: Last Light is a hugely atmospheric FPS that has corrected all the real flaws of its predecessor and improved on them to such a degree that they’re actually superb – stealth and shooting are now things to enjoy rather than avoid, and can compete with the best in the genre. Unfortunately Last Light does bring some problems of its own, with hand-holding AI companions, a slightly unfocused story, tightly linear environments and generally feeling like a remake of 2033...
