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

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.

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!

One of the best games I have play in 2014. I just built a new gaming machine and experienced minimal glitches that were all solved by either restart the computer or restarting the chapter. Using an XBoxOne controller the game play and fighting was smooth and very enjoyable. I can't wait for Metro 3. Also thanks to Steam for making my purchase so smooth.

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.

Am i the only one who cannot take a steam screenshot use F12 of this game? Also everytime i type SHIFT+TAB i am not seeing steam page but only Arthyom's inventory...how could be? This is not happened on my Metro:2033 non Redux version.

The another problem is every time i launch the game with highest graphic setting and 1440p , the game don't want to run, only see blackscreen on my monitor. So i have to run on safe mode version and choose again highest setting on option menu. After will quit the game, i have to set back lowest graphic setting on option and then quit game. Damn...so much pain.

i really enjoy photorealistic graphic of this game on spartan mode. My system still capable to run on 60 fps on almost all area with auto SSAA, PhsyX, and max out setting. I hope this problem will be fixed asap. This is the best post apocalypt for me after The Last of Us PS3.

Sorry, my grammar is not perfect

Let me just start by saying that this is a STRESSFUL game. I have no problems with that, because it creates atmosphere. But in many circumstances i found myself out of air, running to a hard-to-get objective with a handfull of enemies chasing me while i had no ammo. I was saved by cutscenes 1/3 of the time, but the rest was just the death screen. One thing that comes up alot in Last Light is CONSERVE. You need to conserve everything, if you dont, you might aswell restart the whole chapter. (I restarted 3 times just to say the least.) I feel like Last Light has an evil triangle; If you don't die by lack of air, you will die by enemies. If you don't die of enemies, you will eventually run out of ammo and might aswell die by the lack of air.

You also find yourself alone over 80% of the game, which i think is fantastic for these types of games. It really brews up the atmosphere, and the immersion is top notch. Although i wouldn't put this game in a "horror genre" i would more likely put it into atmosphere and immersion.

The redux made the game better on all fronts, i suggest you buy it at once. The developers really made a good sequel to an already fantastic game.

If this game actually worked, then it would be an amazing game...itd be the best game this year, but they put out a half ♥♥♥♥♥ release that doesnt even work properly. I was able to get it to launch one hour...thats it. All the other times its crashed upon launch. I am definitely not the only one with this problem, which you will soon find if you read the reviews. My advice, save your money until theybe confrimed fixing their issues,

First, with the Pros:

True to the games' description by the author, this is a horror survival game. Progress is determinded by how well you can survive. Elements of stealth, reconnaisance, resource utrilization and conservation, atmospheric and lighting will be key in exploration and survival.

The gameplay is pretty straight-forward. Hand-holding is minimal, and the challenge progression is non-linear. Even on amateur difficulty level,Metro Last Light requires considerable skill and attention to detail to muster even the very first parts of the game. Its' a good primer for these well versed in first person shooters. On highrt levels of difficulty, the key is stealth, frugality in expending resources and firepower, and speed. Of note is the realism bhrought on by environmental factors such as lighting ( notes for stealth), radioactivity, uninhabitable atmosphere ( reminds you to keep check on filters and inventory), and the various monsters you'll face in-game. Each is a challenge unto its' own, blended into a perfect blend of horror.

This, in my opinion, is one of the best horror survival games I've played in a while, and compared to the Resident Evil franchise from Capcom, Metro Last Light just stole my personal record of a horror survival game from Resident Evil.

The graphics options are modest, and a recent gaming rig with a mid-range GPU should be able to handle the game on Low to Medium, without appreciable loss in visual quality. For these with high-end NVIDIA GPUs, turn on Advanced PhySX for realistic physics. You'll want to leave this "Disabled" on AMD GPUs and APUS. VRAM is also significant on Ultra Setting Details and resolutions above 2k-4k.

Game length: Adequate and balanced. Jump right in and survive. Its' all that matters in the Metro.

Caveats: On some scenery, persistent flickering of textures may be prevalent and at times, intermittent. May cause visual strain. Exasberated by playing the game in Stereoscopic 3D. Recent updates and patches have reduced this problem. However, its' still present. If flickering lights trigger epileptic episodes and syncope in the player, take note of this problem.
