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.

Game Features


    • Immerse yourself in the Moscow Metro - witness one of the most atmospheric worlds in gaming brought to life with stunning next-gen visuals at 60FPS Brave the horrors of the Russian apocalypse - equip your gasmask and an arsenal of hand-made weaponry as you face the threat of deadly mutants, human foes, and the terrifying environment itself

    • Rebuilt and Remastered for next-gen - with all previous DLC content included, new modes and features, and many gameplay improvement, this is the definitive version of the critically acclaimed classic that fans and newcomers alike will enjoy

    • Two unique Play Styles : "Spartan" and "Survival" - approach the game as a slow burn Survival Horror, or tackle it with the combat skills of a Spartan Ranger in these two unique modes

    • The legendary Ranger Mode returns - dare you play the fearsome Ranger Mode? No HUD, UI, deadlier combat and limited resources combine to create the ultimate immersive experience

    Based on the internationally bestselling novel series by Dmitry Glukhovsky

The differences between Metro 2033 to Metro 2033 Redux are signifigant while the differences between Metro: Last Light and Metro: Last Light Redux are unfortunately miniscule and in some cases, non-noticeable. I personally purchased this game for some easy achievements but that's not to say I didn't enjoy what I experienced. However, I feel there's a bit to praise and criticise 4A Games on with this product.

Note worthy additions to Metro: Last Light Redux:

● Enhanced lighting. This time around Metro: Last Light has been brightened and it now features lens flares! Whether it's for the better, that's up to you to decide!

● Many textures in Metro: Last Light Redux have been slightly enhanced. However, this enhancment will not be noticeable unless you are running the graphical settings on Very High.

● Enemies are now more responsive to light and sound. If you fall from a high place or turn off a light, expect an enemy to investigate.

● The addition of safes. Hidden throughout the game are safes with corresponding keys. These safes contain a variety of items including ammunition, military grade ammunition, grenades, throwing knives, etc.

Chapter based enhancements (For users who have played through the original Metro: Last Light)

In the chapter Reich, you now have the ability to jump when you're in the chase scene with Pavel.

While fighting the Rhino in the chapter Undercity, nosalises will now attack you. It makes fighting the Rhino a little more challenging, but not nothing you shouldn't be able to handle.


Aspects of Metro: Last Light Redux worth praising:

● The ability to approach a combat situation in multiple ways. Sneaking, knock out kills, use of silencers, and using the darkness to sneak up on enemies. It may seem silly and common knowledge but many games in the current gaming industry fail to deliver anything more than just a watered down run and gun experience.

● The new A.I. combat subroutines are irritating yet innovative. If you're approaching a combat situation guns blazing be prepard for some jumpy, trigger happy enemies.

● The achievement progress saving system. In the original Metro: Last Light, progress was saved in a consecutive playthough. This time around you can reload checkpoints to accumulate kills, unlock safes, filter air time, burn cobwebs and unscrew light bulbs.

● No unsynced voice and facial animations. Although a little wonky, the facial animations and voice are never unsynced from start to finish. That's certainly saying something considering the majority of the games created today have the issue with unsynced facial animations.

● No 'in-game' store. The majority of developers feel the need to put a direct link to their game's downloadable content within the game itself. This angers some consumers while ruining the immersion they're trying to create.


Aspects of Metro: Last Light Redux worth criticizing:

● Non-existant NPC eye tracking. I never realized how important eye tracking was before I played the Metro series. Almost all of the NPCs in Metro: Last Light Redux feel as if they're staring off into space, unaware of their surroundings or the player.

● Copy and paste menus and user interface. The menu and user interface of Metro: Last Light Redux is the exact menu and user interface that Metro: Last Light used back in 2013.

● The watering down of achievements within the game. While they may have added 5 new achievements, they have completely gutted 28 from the game, including ones that were from once downloadable content.

New achievements 4A Games has added to Metro: Last Light Redux:

1. Veteran - Choose three primary weapons that use different ammo.
2. Pyromaniac - Burn 50 Cobwebs.
3. Engineer - Use 10 Lever Switches.
4. Master Thief - Open 10 locked safe boxes.
5. Cheers! - Drink at every occasion.

Achievements that were in Metro: Last Light but were not present in Metro: Last Light Redux:

01. Weapon Smith - Install all possible Customizations for a Weapon.
02. First Draft - Write 10 of Artyom's hidden Diary pages.
03. Tesla - Break 50 Lights.
04. A Present - Take the Custom Pistol from the Locked Box.
05. Businessman - Make 100 Purchases.
06. Diver - Fall in the Swamp 10 times.
07. Soup - Kill 5 Shrimp with Grenades.
08. Equipped - Find all Equipment Stashes in the swamps.
09. Walking Bank - Collect 1000 Military Rounds.
10. Inferno - Set 2 Enemies on fire at once.
11. Forgotten - Find the Hidden Ammo in the abandoned part of the station on the QUARANTINE level.
12. Musician - Use all Musical Instruments in the game.
13. Nobody's Home - Ignore the Phone Call in the Anomaly.
14. Bloodlust - Kill all the Reds on the THE CHASE level.
15. Van Helsing - Kill a Demon with the Helsing.
16. True Spartan - Hold the Platform without dying.
17. Gunslinger - Kill at least one Enemy with each Weapon available in the game.
18. Shadow Ranger - Complete the game without killing any Humans unless forced to.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
20. Sniper - Kill 10 enemies with headshots using your sniper rifle.
21. Artifact - Find 30 artifacts.
22. Homo Homini Lupus Est - Kill 100 enemies with heavy weapons.
23. Willpower - Сomplete at least one HUGE mission.
24. Arachnophobia - Kill 20 spiders with your flame thrower.
25. Specialist - Complete the SHOOTING RANGE and ARENA.
26. Safe Cracker - Open 8 safe boxes on the PAVEL level.
27. Hunting - Kill 20 Nosalises on the KHAN level.
28. Eagle Eye - Kill more Watchmen than Artyom does.


Unfortunately, this product can only be launched while connected to a network. These type of business decisions only affect the users who have legally purchased this product. If people have interest in pirating this product, they're going to find a way around this restriction.

The original Metro: Last Light has been removed for purchase from the Steam Store. If you some how manage to find a Metro: Last Light Steam license from a 3rd party source, best of luck finding licenses for the downloadable content. My condolences go out to the users who care about achievements and have purchased Metro: Last Light before it was removed but did not have time to purchase all of the downloadable content. These users who have only purchased the base game will never be able to obtain 100% achievement completion for this product.

I didn't enjoy this game as much as the original Metro Last Light, but I would certainly recommend it if the price is right.

REDUX! This version of last light does not differ all that much from original. Basically lighting and some shaders are improved slightly and several locations have more prop objects and are filled more wtih detail, but other than that you will be buying Safe box key searching game mecahnic.

If you own lastlight wait for massive sale on lastlight redux, for you are purchasing only handfull of changes, unlike 2033 redux.

However if you dont have metro and would be for some reason deciding between original and redux BUY REDUX!

The adrenaline rush you get when you realise you have no ammo for the next boss, your gasmask is cracked and seaping poisonous air into your lungs and you have no health packs or filters left... There is no other choice but to man up and fight the boss thrice your size with throwing knives and courage. This is Metro.

Metro: Last Light is a very immersive, superb linear first-person shooter that has good stealth elements mixed in the sauce. The AI is pretty stupid though, and even one step you take without crouching makes them question the sound even though they have a dozen friends running around already. Another thing that really annoys me is changing between your throwable weapons, you have to move your mouse while in-game in a very idiotic way that I really cannot even describe. Also, when you're making a stealth kill, both you and the enemy stand up without any animation - it's looks very clunky, and your character doesn't go automatically back to the sneaking position, which is why I was spotted numerous times.

The Redux version of Last Light does not differ from the original at all, if you don't count some fixed lighting. It also includes all the DLC, which seems to consist of pretty decent side-missions. The graphics are fantastic. Play in Hardcore Ranger-mode for a good time!

Metro: Last Light is a superb game with fantastic gameplay and immersion. 9/10

If you don't already have this game buy it right now. However if you have the original then I wouldn't bother. There is a very slight graphical improvement however it is still pretty poorly optimized. I am running SLI 770s 4gb and it sit at around 23 frames a second maxed out with SSAA x 4. With SSAA x 2 it sits around 45 - 60. I thought it was going to be optimized to run a little bit better but I didn't see it at all. The game is still one of the best games I've ever played and I only hope my money goes towards a 3rd Metro.

Об этой игре: Metro: Last Light(Redux)

На дворе 2034 год.

Под руинами постапокалиптической Москвы в туннелях метро остатки человеческой расы сражаются со смертельными угрозами – внешними и внутренними. Мутанты крадутся по катакомбам под пустынной поверхностью и парят в отравленных небесах. Но вместо того, чтобы объединить усилия, города-станции погрязли в борьбе за абсолютную власть и устройство судного дня с армейских складов D6. Назревающая гражданская война может навсегда стереть человечество с лица Земли. В роли Артема, отягощенного виной, но движимого надеждой, вы владеете ключом к выживанию – лучом надежды в этот темный час

Описание продукта:

✔Metro: Last Light Redux – самая лучшая и полная версия классической игры Metro: Last Light, обновленная с применением последней, самой совершенной версии графического ядра 4A Engine для игровых систем последнего поколения.

✔Игроки, не знакомые с серией, получат один из лучших сюжетных шутеров за всю историю жанра – эпическое приключение, сочетающее в себе захватывающий «Сурвайвл-хоррор», исследование местности, тактические бои и стелс. В это издание входит также весь выпущенный ранее загружаемый контент, который добавляет дополнительные 10 часов к игре в одиночном режиме.

✔Поклонники игры в ее исходном виде заметят, что механика улучшилась, и появилось новое –например, возможность в любой момент узнать время и боезапас, а бои и фигуры игровых персонажей заново анимированы.

✔Те, кого привлекал знаменитый приквел Metro 2033 с его ориентацией на хоррор и выживание, смогут сыграть по-новому, поскольку теперь появились два способа игры – «Выживание» и «Спартанец». При первом способе Last light из игры с упором на сражения и скрытные действия превращается в тихую, но напряженную схватку за выживание.

✔Несравненный Режим рейнджера делает игру еще более захватывающей и сложной, так что Metro: Last Light Redux обеспечит вам часы развлечения по очень выгодной цене.

Note: Make sure that you've played Metro 2033 or Metro 2033 Redux before playing this game as it takes place after the events of Metro 2033. I have written a review for that game as well that you can find on my profile under the reviews tab.

In Metro Last Light Redux you take up the role as Artyom once again. It works the same as Metro 2033 when it comes to the "Military Grade Rounds" which are used as both currency and extra damage dealing ammunition. On top of having all of the weapons that were available in the first game, they have added several new ones and given them attachments as well making it easy for you to make a weapon that suits your needs.

Metro Last Light also offers amazing character progression, with outstanding voice actors natural movement from the AI.

The same detection system is also available here, combining sound and vision, and it works great.

Environments in Last Light are absolutely stunning just like in Metro 2033. The devs have made an outstanding job with capturing the post-apocalyptic feeling you get while walking on the streets of Moscow.

They story in Last Light is equally captivating as in Metro 2033. Metro Last Light Redux is, like its predecessor, an excellent game worth playing.

One of the most intense games I've ever played. It can feel like it's railroading you into setpieces a lot of the time, but when it gives an hour or more of uninterrupted gunplay... god damn.

When you play this game on Hard mode, ♥♥♥♥ gets real, real fast. I had to try to keep my flashlight on 5 different giant spiders simultaneously to keep them away, as they tried to close in around me. I had to sprint across an entire wasteland segment because I had only one minute of filter on my gas mask, and kill a boss while my guy was gasping for air, about to pass out. I had to fight off a horde of rampaging dickwolves with only 10 rounds in an assault rifle and 4 shells in my quadruple barreled shotgun. Then I had to fight the boss that came right after that, with only a knife.

This game has some memorable moments for sure.

Following on from Metro 2033, Metro Last light is a great sequel and doesn't disappoint. Like M2033 there is a great replay value. Played through twice myself in different modes and loved every minute of it.

The atmospherics really do make you feel you are in this game. There are some shocking and jumping moments when you get the hairs on the back of your neck tingling. You feel at most times vulnerable and as though you are being watched or followed. Ammo is very hard to come by and you have to be very careful what you purchase, sell and use. However all these elements make a really good game, a game you have to think about your every move.

I couldn't recommend a better set of games. You wont be disappointed, it wicked!

In fact I might just play them both again.

Graphics and Audio are fantastic and not many games come close.

10/10 Awesome!

Metro: Last Light

I enjoyed the game to the fullest walking through spooky areas in post apocalyptic Russia on the 2014 Halloween.
The graphics are amazing looking and the gun mechanics are decent. Really spooky atmosphere when you're walking in the underground.

You have the choice of stealth, or full-on firefights, or a mix of the two, go the easy way and be lethal, or try and avoid needless bloodshed. Exact your revenge and kill those who deserve it, or show them mercy.

That's my pitch of it, but I think they were definitely going for the benefit of multiple playthroughs being a different experience, but one chosen by the player, and if me being eager to start on my second playthrough with a handicap proves it, then it's true as anything.

The ending, naturally, changes, though I don't know to what extent yet, maybe a little, maybe a lot.
Honestly I don't care too much about to what extent the ending does change because the choices you make, at least in my experience, do a good job of sticking to you, like it wasn't some character who did those things, but the player himself. It's a good example of the journey being more important, more vauable than the destination.

Not a perfect game, of course, but an impressive one nonetheless.
Harrowing, and yet exciting, endearing and yet brooding, beautiful and yet mournful. If there's one thing that the game offers, it's a world that feels every bit real and alive as one could wish. Quite an accomplishment for a setting so permeated with death.

I didn't play the original version, but from what I understand it Redux is an overhaul of sorts. A generally a more fleshed-out experience. They likely upped the graphics a bit, the sounds, and generally gave it a nice boost in all departments.
I have no proof on hand, but I'm eager to believe; it looks like they put enormous amounts of effort into making this thing what it is and there is no part of me that wishes to doubt.

As far as length goes, I probably missed a bunch of stuff but then I'm a slow player anyway, and I got about 16 hours out of a playthrough on Hardcore. I'd say expect about 13-17 hours depending on how generally quick you are. Not a bad length for an FPS of such quality at all.


A spectacular game in every sense of the word, breathtaking and an amazing experience. Crisp visuals, an astoundingly well-executed setting, great sound design, challenging and tense combat, rewarding exploration and a story you can care about.

It's a very good game. I previously owned the original Metro Last Light on my other account.
But when i saw Redux bundle, i just had to get it.
So what are the differences between normal Last Light and Last Light Redux?
Well,,,,,,,
Redux have all the DLC for Metro.
Easier & Fewer achievments ( I currently completed everyone today. )
Graphical wise, it's really no difference only DLC and Achievments.
Do i recommend this product?
Well if you already have the original Last Light, i would maybe not bother to buy this product but if you don't, then buy this one for sure!

SURVEY AS TO WHETHER YOU SHOULD BUY METRO: LAST LIGHT REDUX

1: Do you have Metro: Last Light with all DLC already?

A: Yes!
B: No, no no no. No. Definitely not. I checked in my video game bag.

If A: Don't bother. This is just a remaster for a year old game. It comes with some new features that aren't really going to affect your experience. As a matter of fact, it actually adds bugs. The intro movie bug struck again, which freezes my game until I have to replace the movie file with a blank renamed .txt. A couple of times I got caught in the Metro's geometry. The Metro ate me whole. Stick that in your ♥♥♥♥ing air mask and breathe it in.

If B: Yes, you should, because this is a complete edition, and Metro: Last Light is pretty good. This is the only Last Light related thing to buy for the complete experience.

A fantastic game bogged down by one glaring issue - faulty sound mixing. Dialogue will randomly fade in and out and most guns don't make noise unless you attach a silencer to them. There's also more minor technical issues like weird Vashta Nerada style shadows (HEY, WHO TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS) and a bit of poor lip synching.

Still, it's hard for me NOT to recommend this game - it's gripping, tense, atmospheric and jaw droppingly beautiful. Just prepare to pretend Artyom is mostly deaf for story purposes...although from what I've heard my issues are the least of the bunch people have had so be forewarned.
