Metro: Last Light

DarkStation
5 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Nevertheless, Last Light succeeds due to 4A’s attention to detail. Every overheard conversation, every child bundled up in rags and playing without a care, and every last bit of hardscrabble technology give the Metro that “living, breathing” feel that so many games chase. It’s a relentlessly tense stealth-action shooter that manages to make its dead-horse premise feel as if it’s never been seen before now.

Metro: Last Light

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: 4A Games is great at conveying a truly unique feel and setting up a compelling atmosphere. The campaign has a terrific pace and you’ll be immersed in no time. Mind you, after careful consideration, we have to recommend you try this one on the PC, despite some annoying technical problems that were present upon the game’s launch. Some of these issues were ironed out, while others remain.
  • Pros: Awesome atmosphere and it still feels like a unique FPS game the same as its predecessor;
  • Cons: A tad predictable and sometimes buggy AI, performance issues in the initial PC version, a voiceless character may not have been the right move here.

  • 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 Review (PC)

Softpedia
17 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Metro: Last Light is a great first-person shooter that manages to combine a good stealth system with a great world. The story is very good and manages to make new players feel invested in Artyom while veterans learn much more about the hero. While there are a few technical flaws here and there, they don't subtract from the impressive game, which manages to improve on its great predecessor.
  • Pros: +Gorgeous visuals both inside the metro and on the surface, +Great story with lots of complex characters, +Varied and imaginative world
  • Cons: -Stealth has some bugs, -Soundtrack when sneaking has a few quirks

Metro: Last Light (PC) Review

Brainlazy
13 May 2013
  • Conclusion: TL;DR portion of this review: Metro: Last Light manages to push the graphical fidelity of this generation into the next. Through screen shots alone you may be fooled into believing Metro: LL is a next-gen game. Though character models and animation quickly yank that thought decidedly back into this-gen like a bad case of whiplash.  The combat is tight, tense and well developed without feeling repetitious.

Metro Last Light is the cure for the modern shooter

Quarter to Three
13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Like the previous Metro, Last Light is characterized by the unforced mellow melancholy of a post-apocalypse some people call home. This is not the apocalypse we know and love. The Fallout games could never shake Bethesda’s penchant for fantasy quests and character builds and elaborate inventory subgames and dialogue trees and hearty faithful sidekicks. But Last Light has the somber sense that an apocalypse is not fun. It can be sad, small, dim, and lonely.

Expert Review

  • Summary: The shadows of the past linger. They appear as silhouettes on crumbling walls each time lightning bolts slash across the sky. They haunt you as you journey across annihilated cityscapes once teeming with life and love. Metro: Last Light is an exceptionally well-crafted first-person adventure that fills your mind with the regrets of time gone by, and understands the fear and uncertainty that arise from silence and stillness.
  • Pros: Astounding atmosphere fills you with dread, A great, surprisingly touching story about loss and hope, Fantastic pacing allows tension to build before the action heats up, Exploring the surface is frightening and exciting, Great array of weapons make you feel powerful, but not overpowered
  • Cons: Unimpressive AI, Performance troubles, particularly with ATI video cards
