My experienced so far - 9/10 Ep#1 video can be found here
I'm glad they made the re-release. It's a bummer I had to pay for it again - but from what I understand there's an added 10 hours of single player game play that was DLC on the previous one...
"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."
PLUS if you had the previous version you also got 50% off pre-order. Worth it to me - up to you if you want to check it out for yourself. It became available as of am 8/26/14.
I have Metro: Last Light and then bought the Redux version. Here's what I can say 20 minutes into the game - same story line as Metro Last Light (obv) but the experience has been better for me.
For my computer specs I'm using a:
-R9 290 GPU
-AMD FX 9370 4.4GHz CPU
-16GB GSKILL RAM
-480Solid State Hard Drive
-was 1000w PSU now 750w PSU
-Asus CrosshairV mobo
- Win 8.1 (and now win 9 coming late 2014...?!?!)
When I payed the prior release I was having such a bad time due to screen flickers. I played with the graphics options but even the pre-buffered intro screen was choppy.
UPDATE: So I did have issues launching the game during my second play - why it worked like a dream the first time and then the second time I had to force let it start in a really low resolution is beyond me. Once I was able to launch the game I cranked up the settings again - but still not sure if that was something going on with my pc or the game... hope this was a one time issue.
