About This Game

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.

But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…

Product Overview:

Metro: Last Light Redux is the definitive version of the critically acclaimed ‘Metro: Last Light’, rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine for Next Gen. Newcomers will get the chance to experience one of the finest story-driven shooters of all time; an epic adventure combining gripping survival horror, exploration and tactical combat and stealth.

This definitive version also includes all previously released DLC, adding 10 hours of bonus single-player content to the huge solo campaign. Fans of the original game will notice new features and gameplay improvements, including new melee animations, the ability to check your watch and ammo supplies on the fly, and new full-body player animations.

And those who favoured the more survival-horror oriented gameplay of the cult prequel ‘Metro 2033’ will find a new way to experience the campaign thanks to the introduction of two unique Play Styles – Survival and Spartan. The former transforms Last light from a more action-oriented stealth combat experience to a fraught, slow burn fight for survival. With the legendary Ranger Mode included to offer an extra layer of challenge and immersion, Metro: Last Light Redux offers hours of AAA gameplay for an incredible price.

This game tought me, that I can't spend all my money and ammo on strippers, because I might have to shoot myself through a radioactive swamp only 10 minutes later. And it tought this lesson to me the hard way.

Note: This review, to a considerable extent, assumes you have played through Metro 2033 Redux. References to 2033 can be found throughout the review, and story spoilers of that game can be found in the narrative section.

Metro: Last Light Redux is the sequel to Metro 2033 (Redux), and is one of, if not my favorite linear FPS game of all time. Last Light blends fantastic set pieces with flawlessly implemented gameplay much like its predecessor, but does so in an even more innovative and fun-to-play way. To effectively inform you on the greatness of this game, I'll be detailing its presentation, gameplay, and narrative, as well as delivering my final thoughts.

When describing the presentation of Last Light's Redux, it's important to reflect upon the presentation of 2033's Redux as well. The two games are presented similarly, but every little detail of Last Light has been reworked to appear more refined than it did in 2033. The textures, lighting, modeling, and visual effects have all been improved upon, and go a long way to making the experience a realistic and wholly gorgeous one. The world and environments too are better constructed and designed, and have become near indistinguishable from real world interiors, exteriors, and landscapes- well, other than the whole post-apocalyptic thing. The final visual element I must praise is the animation, which is now actually noteworthy and very fluid, in a way that it was not in the previous game. As for the audio, it has also been upgraded since the previous installment. The ambiance is about on par with 2033, but the music is much more involving and expressive, and the sound effects are miles ahead of those in the previous game. Finally moving on to the performance, it's another aspect of the presentation that is flawless. Anyone with a modern day PC should run the game just fine, as long as they don't go crazy with the SSAA option. Altogether, the presentation of Last Light is expertly realized; making for a unique and incredibly beautiful view of post-apocalyptic Moscow, whether under the ground or above.

Just like the presentation, the gameplay of Last Light is easily compared to that of 2033's, but comes with some key differences and significant improvements. A rundown of the similar-but-improved category includes the gunplay; which has been made slightly more impactful, the survival horror element; which is utilized less frequently but done more tastefully than in 2033, the majority of the looting/inventory mechanics; in that they are wholly the same, as well as the difficulty settings; which are also entirely the same as before, in that they decide the difficulty of the game, but also other elements such as the accessibility of the UI and number of weapons/amount of ammunition you can carry. The significantly overhauled or entirely new aspects of the game are the exploration, stealth, and boss fight systems. As for the exploration, there is much more emphases put on this element of the gameplay than in 2033. While still linear, there are several levels in Last Light that invite you to loot, discover, and experience the world of Metro in open ended areas. These are some of the best parts of the game, and I implore you to ensure you don't forgo any opportunity you have to undertake them. As for the stealth, it's just as tense, gut-wrenching, and important for survival as before, but has been heavily redesigned to make the AI more intelligent, resulting in a stealth system that makes you use all the tricks you have to give any enemy the slip. Lastly are the boss fights, something that was never present in the previous game. These large-scale fights are sprinkled across the 12 hour length of the main campaign, each of them completely unique from other enemies in the game, and each more challenging to survive than the last. All things considered, the gameplay of Last Light is just as good as 2033's, but goes that extra mile that really sets it apart from almost all other FPS games on the market.

This is the portion of the game where Last Light finally effectively distinguishes itself from 2033. Giving a quick plot rundown, Metro Last Light occurs one year after the "bad" ending of Metro 2033, where the home of the Dark Ones is nuked, leaving the species is supposedly wiped out. Over the year since the bombing, Artyom became a Ranger of The Order, and played a role in the revival of D6, which is now The Order's HQ. The story picks up naturally when Khan, everyone's favorite spiritual homeless man, tells Artyom and The Order that he saw a surviving Dark One in the ruins of their old nest, and that it was just a baby. The Order then sends you, as Artyom, to kill the strange being, which proves to be more complicated than it seems, and gets Artyom swept up into a conflict between the warring factions of the Metro; from The Reich to The Red Line, and Hanza to The Order itself. With the plot setup out of the way, let's talk about my opinions of the story. As always, the world of the metro is an incomparably intriguing one, but this time is even more so due to the genuinely deep and interesting motivations of each faction, which Last Light thoroughly explores. Another important part of the narrative are the little choices you make as Artyom, which can be categorized as good or bad, and will have an effect on the ending, just like in the previous game. My favorite new addition to the story though, has to be the amount of humanity that is now attributed to the characters that just wasn't there in the first game. The people of the metro, other than the one true villain, all have morally ambiguous stances and understandable goals, and it becomes Artyom's greatest challenge when good people are set against him due to their conflicting allegiances and beliefs. All in all the story is quite enthralling, whether you’re talking about the overarching narrative, or just the little stories you come in contact with along the way; bringing about a real experience that went above and beyond my expectations.

Final Thoughts
While it probably became evident throughout this review, Last Light is basically just more of the Metro we all love. However, this time around 4A hit the nail even more squarely on the head than before, making the game a truly unparalleled achievement in linear storytelling and gameplay mechanics, putting it right up there with your Half-Life's and Bioshock's. In the end, Metro: Last Light Redux as well as Metro 2033 Redux come together as a cohesive experience, and to my mind, the latter half was also the better half. Such is life in The Metro. C’est la vie.

Personal Rating: 10/10

Extra Note: Last Light comes with 8 on board DLC levels which can be found by clicking on chapters, and then choosing “New Missions.” 3 of these missions add to the main story as they take place from the perspective of some of the supporting characters, and are consequently the best missions. The other 5 vary in quality from bad, to worthless, to decent; and mostly function as an on rails experience through what I assume where ideas cut from the main game. Altogether, they add about 4 hours of decent-quality content to the game, but in no way match up with the experience of the main game.

I have played survival games and plenty of RPG games in my time, and whilst this is a RPG FPS, I classify it under survival as well. ARK, Minecraft, RUST, Don't Starve, you name it, I've played it, and besides the annoyance of dying, I couldn't care what happens to my characters.

Except this game. I cared for him, I was scared for him, I wanted him to live, and every moment felt like its own personal battle. Not only that, but the atmosphere this game sets is astonishing, the sounds, the lighting, the effects, makes it all very surreal, and when you combine that with the story, well, to be fair, if you aren't scared for at least your characters wellbeing, then you've become a spider crab in terms of feels. I love this game 10/10.

I got into the Metro series a little late, but I've thoroughly enjoyed Last Light. If I were to paraphrase my experience: frustratingly fun. Last Light feeds into my love for FPS games, as all you're doing is shooting people or creatures. There is an option to knife/melee, but other than that, it's primarily gun play. The atmosphere of this game is dark, and I don't mean the story. For the most part, you're playing in some part of the map that is dark and difficult to see. This element was done to help make the player on edge and "scared" of what may be around them.

When you start the game, you're given two options which are either the game gives you more ammo and isn't as punishing if you just unload your weapon, or, essentially, hardcore, where ammo is scarce. Even if you choose the former, ammo is still scarce. There were a few times where I ran out of ammo and non was around, so had to reload an earlier check point. Personally, I'm not a fan of this. I know a lot of people are, but I don't want to spend five-ten minutes just trying to gather supplies.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake of playing Last Light first, as I didn't know 2033 was the first game. It is highly advised to play 2033 first to help you understand the story characters better/ Eventually you kind of figure it out, but you're still left confused about certain characters. As this is the redux version, we can go back into the story and play from another character's perspective. This is a fantastic option! I've not seen many games offer this.

There were some parts in the game that I felt weren't helpful and were meant for raging. It's bad enough when you have an invincible demon in the sky trying to swoop you up, but to make matters worse, there are these water creatures that come out of the water, shoot things at you, and/or just follow you and are invincible. Oh, and if you go in the water, there's a creature that insta-kills you. I raged..hard.

Gun wise, I felt the developers did a fantastic job differentiating between the guns and accurately depicting their power. For example, my favorite gun to use was the Revolver. It packed quite a punch, and was pretty accurate.

One element I hadn't been expecting that I enjoyed very much was that we could use our lighter to burn up cobwebs and/or light wall torches. This is probably one of the best mechanics I've seen in a while! It's not often you see a game which actually has your lighter burning things when you're near/touching them. Brownie points to the devs!

Finally, I took the time to explore this game. Explore the surroundings, the people. Today we don't see this as ever happening, impossible, right? But to imagine it. To imagine that something happens and we're forced underground like they are. I may be in the minority here, but games like this really make me think about something that could happen, albeit a very far fetched chance.

All in all, and raging aside, I quite enjoyed this game.


  • Good graphics + animation.
  • Good story + voice acting.
  • Good gunplay.
  • Fantastic job of giving us a little fear element in certain parts of the game.
  • Continued the Metro story very nicely.
  • Full controller support.
  • Nudity ('Cause nudity is always nice. :P)
  • Lighter burns cobwebs and lights torches.
  • Trading cards.
  • Steam achievements.


  • Spiders. Oh lawd did I get so creeped out by the spiders in this game! You lose those brownie points for that! (I'm kidding, by the way)
  • Certain points in the game felt like the intent was to make you rage. Certain parts were just difficult and took too long to complete.

The plot in this game is inferior to its predecessor,namely METRO 2033.This is not to say that it is bad,just the first part took very high level.On the surface, now go out more often.Appeared love line has increased the magnitude of what is happening.

The gameplay is slightly changed,I think for the better,stealth became much more interesting,but it is too easy.Stealth the way to locations obvious and easy to use,the opponents you almost don't notice.

Appeared Nude girls,however, lost the opportunity for a drink the bartender at the stations.

This is a very good game!!!

Bringing back the dark and gritty atmosphere of 2033, Last Light continues the superb story of Metro 2033.

You’re cast as one of these survivors, a ranger named Artyom, the hero of Metro 2033 returned for another valiant adventure. Artyom, along with his group of survivors -- and innocent bystanders in general -- find themselves caught with increasing frequency in the middle of warring factions in the metro, a situation made all the more dangerous and untenable by the mutated creatures that live both in the tunnels and on the surface.

Metro’s world is tangibly dangerous and rife with terror, with a feeling of risk and foreboding around virtually every corner. The political thread that connects everything – how surviving factions lucky just to be alive could still be at each other’s throats -- makes the situation that much more interesting. Let's take a look at the pros and cons.


+ Amazing setting.
+ Strong story / storystelling.
+ Considerable production value.
+ Good Gameplay.
+ Survival horror has returned.
+ Immersion.
+ More than 1 ending.
+ Unique enemies


- Questionable enemy AI
- Awkward addition of nudity
- Stereotypical shooter boss battles
- Occasional technical hiccups

The Verdict

Last Light has problems, but players looking for a fun campaign in a gritty atmosphere may find quite a bit to like.I give it a honest 8.6/10!

Possibly my favourite game ever!

This game follows Metro 2033, based on the book (by Dmitri Glukhovsky), which I also strongly recommend. To make it short, you are Artyom, a young Moscovite man, who has lived in the metro system of Moscow for the past 20 years, since a nuclear war wiped out all life on the surface (or has it?). Some weird stuff is happening in the tunnels near your home station, and you have to report about it to the "police" force of the subway, forcing your way through nazis, comunists, opportunists, bandits, mutant creatures and other scary stuff. (If it's still not clear for you : this is an allegory of post-comunist Russia). In this second volume of the game, you have become yourself one of these "policemen" (rangers) and have to (again) save the day.

The graphics are beautiful, the sound is gorgeous, the story is convincing and enthralling, the gameplay on point. I love the shooting mechanics, the customization of your weapons, the choice of weapons, the variety of enemies.

Regarding the game itself, there are a few jumpscares here and there, but not too much, it's mostly a sort of psychological horror (apart from sheer blood and violence when fighting) that creeps on you. There are several game modes, which lead you to various playstyles.
You can play it in the easy difficulties, where there's ammo everywhere, and you just plow your way through everything (or try to sneak, fail, and then have to shoot everyone). Or you can play in harder difficulties, where you are forced to stealth your way simply because there's no bullets to shoot anymore.

The only downsides of this game are the limited possibility of replaying (since it is fairly linear) and the impossibility to play in highest difficulty on the first time. Explanation : in highest difficulty mode, you have no UI, and no clues of what key to press to interact with objects, or how to select your different weapons. Meaning that you'll be stuck. So you have to play it once with the hints, telling you how to choose knife/mines/grenades, and then play it in harder, once you understand how it works. However, for this game, there are also several additional levels, where you are playing other characters, and they are great! There's some sneak missions of stealth sniping, there's some pure fighting as a nazi heavy machine gunner, there's some exploration of both underground and surface...

Overall, a great game with a great scenario! Take it!

The next part after Metro 2033 Redux. If you're interested in atmospheric survival, then this game is just for you!

Pros (+):
- Atmospheric gameplay
- Good graphics
- Good story

Cons (-):
- Story's short.

I recommend it to buy at sales prices, atleast then it's more reasonable.

+ Story lenght and quality
+ Greater variety of weapons (Appreciated in Spartan mode)
+ Very immersive levels
+ New creatures and interesting characters
+ Good old Metro atmosphere
+ DLCs
+ Redux version

Most definitely a must have for somebody who has played Metro 2033 (Redux), the story develops further and new, interesting facts show up. All the DLCs also enhance the story experience even further, being able to see what was happening while we were on our journey with Artyom was a really good move.

Ahh... I hate to be this guy.

You know, that guy that hates on a game because it didn't live up to it's name. Even with the knowledge that it was a completely different game in the same storyline.

That said. This game was nothing but irritating for me. I was expecting a comparable continuance of the Metro storyline. What did I get for my hard earned money? Something that was far less. Lots of storyline, but not of the same quality. In fact, so much that it interfered with my gameplay. I'd have to estimate that at least 20 percent of the game is cutscenes that are not nearly as interesting as they should have been. In fact, at least half of those cutscenes were worthless drains of time that did nothing for the storyline.

Without spoiling the plot, I have to say that this game felt more like I was trying to watch Alien Resurrection and watch the child friendly favorite, E.T. at the same time. It was badly presented and did not do Metro 2033 justice.

So, how was the gameplay? Easy. Way easier than Metro 2033. You had everything you needed, conservation of resources was not ever an issue. And yea, I was playing on Ranger. On the most difficult setting you should feel a hell of a challenge. You should feel like every shot counts and that any mistake you do is punished with the most unpredictable of consequences. Maybe you should suffocate due to not packing enough filters. Maybe you should run out of all your best ammunition and be resorted to using some stray weapon you found on a corpse. No. None of that. I don't know about you, but I'm not really here for a walk in the friggin park.

Instead of difficult gameplay concepts, you know what we got? Resident Evil style bosses. "Oh, superboss... just shoot it in the flashing red areas to do damage." I'm sorry, wtf did you just say??? Did you just tell me IN GAME that I had to shoot a difficult adversary in the red flashy areas? You didn't expect that to be immersion breaking? Gtfo.

Nothing about this game lives up to Metro 2033. The only saving grace it had was a couple moments of intense gunfights. I cannot recommend this game.

I completed this game in less than 10 hours. It was a painful 10 hours.

Got this game as part of the Metro Redux Bundle on sale for seven bucks. I'm not disappointed. This game is IMO better than Metro 2033 Redux. The stealth is better, there are more guns, and the story is better. On one playthrough it took me about eleven hours on Hardcore, but I will definetly replay this game.
