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.

    • 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

As a fan of Metro 2033 Redux, I was disappointed by this game. TL;DR at the end.

It's not Metro. At least not the Metro I played in the first game. And no, adding a survival mode option does not alleviate that issue. You see, this game was tailor-made to be an action game first. The more subdued, desolate, and isolating 2033 felt real. It felt grounded. I was terrified of losing my life, and in effect letting my world go to waste as a result of my failure.

In Last Light, I just felt like I was moving through a shooting gallery. The only difference being, instead of flat wooden targets, I had 3D creature/human models at my mercy. I believe this is partly the result of the more obvious emphasis on stealth/moral gameplay in the human sections (making each room feel like a piece of a slideshow), partly the result of a linear good/bad ending system that essentially forces players to play a certain way to achieve their desired goal, and partly the result of a loss of plain and simple STAKES; There were none. The game simply places you in the middle of a narrative you really don't care about:

1. You are introduced to about 50 (exaggeration) new characters at once, with no real investment or proper development of any of them.

2. You are introduced to a threat that you can't even ascertain, and when you finally do, the issue is resolved a short while thereafter. It has no lasting ramifications or effect on you whatsoever. While the walkthrough level related to the said threat was a bit jarring, I got over the feeling quickly, as the game simply shimmied me to the next corridor of gameplay (while apparently making an unwritten agreement with me to never speak of it again). I honestly didn't care, and you won't care.

3. The ending is extremely anti-climactic, and I'm not just talking about the cinematic. Even the final battle feels like a drag.

It feels like an iteration of Call of Duty with a small helping of its requisite set-piece moments, with peak creativity at maybe three meager moments the Mantis Swamp Monster, the train intrusion battle, and Winnie the Pooh near the end.

TL;DR
A bad Metro game. A lackluster game in general. Just play 2033.

I genuinely believe 4A Games can do better, and honestly they did a lot with the means they had. Metro 2033 is testament to that opinion, and I hope to see better and original titles from them in the future.

Absolutely bloody amazing. This review will serve as both a review of 2033's Redux and Last Light's Redux as they're rather similar games, and because my reviews are always extremely inconsistent this one'll be addressing criticisms these games have had.

-The morality system: Actually? These games have some of the best morality systems I've seen in a game period. For the average player it'd be easy to mistake it for a Dishonored type of deal but there are actually significant differences. The way it works is that you get "Points" for doing certain actions or so on, (You're not told when you get a point but there is an audio/visual cue. The system is also never explained at any point which is also a nice touch) BUT unlike games like Dishonored it's not almost entirely determined by your bodycount. Acting out of character, shooting the corpses of your former friends, and ecetera makes you lose points, while paying attention to conversations, not killing people, but primarily exploring earns you points. Note that exploring is the primary source of points- You can play both of these games as a stone-cold soldier and still get the good endings, because you explored your environment and made the right decisions/had the right reactions to situations. Not to mention that neither of these games are designed for 100% nonlethal in mind- Not only can you go as lethal as you want on mutants, but there are also several segments of the game where you killing is perfectly acceptable. If you only kill when you need to you won't lose an opportunity to earn a single point, if you kill across the course of the entire game you still won't lose many points. Oh yeah- And the "Bad" endings aren't even that bad. 2033's bad ending is canon anyway and Last Light's bad ending is still fairly satisfying- In both bad endings you're still somewhat the good guy, and you still succeed in your missions, one's just a wiser decision than the other.

-Gadgets not being usable for nonlethal playstyles: This is a legit criticism for Dishonored but NOT for this game. While fighting mutants it's open season, so you can use that flamethrower all you want- And I'd estimate about 50% of both games involves fighting mutants rather than humans. You get plenty of chances to use all those killing machines in both games regardless of your playstyle.

-The three-weapon system: While I still feel like it's restrictive (I think 4's a better number), it's meant to be deliberately restrictive and I can respect that, not to mention that unlike something like Bioshock Infinite there aren't really many specialist weapons- While weapons have strengths and weaknesses all of them are relative all-rounders. The pistols have enough stopping power to function on their own, for example, so using a pistol in one slot is perfectly viable.

-Glitches/poor optimisation: My rig ran this game fine with pretty short loading screens and sweet graphics. It's not exactly a god-tier PC either. As for glitches I'd be lying if I said I didn't encounter some but none of them couldn't be solved by restarting from a checkpoint which takes around 15 seconds maximum. Glitches are obviously bad but I encountered one gamebreaking one during my entire two campaigns and when it only needs a 15 second fix there really isn't a problem deserving of an entire negative review.

-A bad stealth system: For a game where stealth is more of a throwaway feature rather than a focus I found the stealth level design perfectly fine, bordering on excellent. The stealth system works like Mark of the Ninja does with darkness rendering you almost invisible- My only greivances are with the actual light and enemy's FOV interacting with cover as sometimes those acted a bit weirdly.

Anyway, with that stuff out of the way these were both great experiences. As someone going into these games expecting a highly immersive and top-tier singleplayer FPS experience I got exactly what I came for. These games were definitely worth the playthrough and I'll probably give them a few extra in future- There's a lot of secrets I missed and Ranger mode will probably amp everything up to 11.

Time to review Metro Last Light Redux ladies and gentlemen!

- What is Metro Redux?
Metro Redux is the remastered version of the 2010 Metro 2033 and the 2013 Metro Last Light games!
All of these games are based on the AMAZING Metro Book Saga ( Metro 2033 , Metro 2034 and the latest book Metro 2035 )

- The Story
It's the year 2012..the whole world is basically ♥♥♥♥ed up. there was a nuclear war..everything is destroyed! In Russia , 20,000 people survived the nuclear detonation by hiding in the underground Metro System of Moscow. And of course with Nuclear Detionation..usually comes Radiation! Many of the animals of the surface got mutated , and now they're dangerous creatures you will encounter both in metro and on the surface. Also worth mentioning that because of the radiation , you can't breath without a Gas Mask.
You play as Artyom , a 21 year old Russian gentlemen ( and Yes , just like the previous game , this game also takes in Russia ) who is a Ranger of the Polis. The Game Basically takes up like a year or a few months after Metro 2033! In this game , you'll learn wich ending was the Real Ending in Metro 2033! i don't want to spoil anything about it! The Story is Awesome.

- The Gameplay
Basically the same gameplay as Metro 2033 Redux ( and the 2014 Metro Last Light game )! just amazing! game has stealth mechanics , but they're never necessary to use ( worth mentioning that these mechanics are really good! ) the game has two play styles : "Spartan" and "Survival"! Spartan focuses on players who prefer guns blazing over stealth! Survival focuses on players who rather stealth when they have to opportunity! amazing mechanics. love it.

-The Graphics
Superb. Amazing. one of the most beautiful games i ever played.enough said.

-Positive Things:
- Amazing and honorable re-creation of the 2014 Metro last light game.
- Amazing Story! its a very nice continouation.
- Different Playstyles for different players! play the game in the way YOU want to play it!
- Ranger Hardcore ( its now actually included for free ;D )
- SUPERB graphics!
- Pavel.
- Multiple Ending..and both endings are amazing! loved it!
- *IMPORTANT* Also worth mentioning that every DLC for 2014 Metro Last Light IS INCLUDED in the redux version
- DLCs are fun little adventures! Loved the part where i could play with Anna!

- Negative Things:
- None

Final Verdict: 10/10! if you loved Metro 2033 Redux , or just the original..go buy it ASAP! i bought the Metro Redux Bundle here on steam , for full price..and you know what!? was 100% worth it.

It's a good sequel to Metro 2033 Redux with the same gameplay features, nice graphics and story, no technical issues. I enjoyed it as much as the 1st part.
(Note that i've only played the Redux editions of both games)

-First of all, this is a great PC Port - something rare these days. The graphics are very good and it doesn't require a high end rig to run it at max settings (just forget supersampling);
-The envinroments feels very realistic and if you're playing in a dark room and with headphones, the immersion is complete. You'll hold your breath a lot of times as well as get scared;
-The game has nice stealth mechanics (simply but effective) and shooting is pleasant; weapons have a nice weight;
-Surprisingly good storytelling. The Russian accent (when playing the game in English) feels a little forced but, with that put aside, the story will keep you engaged (specially from half the game 'til the end).

Metro Last Light Redux is a gem. The game's price drops 75%+ during sales and it's pratically stealing. After playing the game, i actually felt bad for paying just 8 reais (~2,5 us dollars) for it.

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.
