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
21 May 2013
  • 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 (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.

Finding Refuge In The Shadows

Game Informer
13 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Smooth out the series’ rough edges for a return trip to Russia’s metro system Graphics: Gorgeous textures and lighting make up for the wooden character animations Sound: Guns pack a satisfying punch, and the metro’s beasts once again sound terrifying Playability: Developer 4A Games tightened up the gunplay, and the stealth mechanics are great.

Metro Last Light is the cure for the modern shooter

quartertothree.com
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.

Metro Last Light

  • Excerpt: Metro: Last Light is the follow up to the gritty Metro: 2033. This first person Horror/ sci-fi survival shooter is a symphony of story elements joining together to make a big splash in this game series. While it’s not a pre requisite to play the latest game…players will get an even deeper understanding and enjoyable experience if they have played the first game in the series.

A Beacon in the Dark–Metro: Last Light review

GamingTrend
24 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I can tell you the exact moment my opinion of Metro: Last Light crystallized. As I was making my way through subway system beneath a bombed out Moscow, I found I had to sneak through a Communist-occupied station. As I avoided detection by stalking through shadows and–I’m not ashamed to admit it–knifing a few Reds, I came to a brightly lit hallway. Maybe it was the lateness of the hour, or maybe I was tired–who knows?
  • Pros: Graphics and audio are incredible…, Environment feels incredibly authentic, Awesome enemy design, Memorable characters–especially Pavel
  • Cons: …when they work, Maybe a bit too easy, Ranger mode really ought to be included.
