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.

After playing this game, Metro Last Light "Redux" i have to say.. It was amazing! Every single bit was amazing so lets get right into it.

Pros:
- Amazing Graphics (I don't reccomend running this on a Potato, sorry)
- Weapon Customization (Alot better then Metro 2033 (Non Redux Verison)
- Very gripping story that sometimes will have you on the edge of your seat.
- Great DLC, Simple and Short and thankfuly it comes with the Redux Verison so thats a plus, ties in with the game and you can see what happened through the eyes of others (Palve, Khan, Anna)
- Somewhat Replay Value (Morale Points and Endings, along with just taking a different apporach)

Cons:
- The Morale points and the two endings, if you get one thing screwed up you will get the bad ending for whatever reason, its really annoying and can really ruin what ending you were trying to work for.
- For me, i don't know why but playing on Surivial Hard Core i seen my self having more Military Grade Bullets and Normal Bullets, Filters etc in full supply which annoyed me, i am not sure if this is like this in Ranger mode so please take that in mind.
- Somewhat stupid AI > Khan in level "Fate of the River" will stand there helplessly while you fight of a horde of mutants which is quite annoying. The Mutants do not attack him nor does he attack them.
- (Somewhat of a spoiler for this one warning right now) On the last level D6 where you are tasked to kill a Tank if you die AFTER destroying the tank you cannot reload saves or die. You will crash to the desktop and have to restart the whole level which can be annoying but the D6 level doesn't last long.


Well, this is not the best review out there of this game. But i do hope some of you know what your buying from reading this.

This game can be VERY challengeing on harder modes or easier on modes like Sparta.

I reccomend this game to those Hardcore FPS gamers or anyone who like Post-Apoc Settings.

I completely recommend playing Metro: 2033 Redux before playing or knowing anything of this game, otherwise you might be confused and lose important advancements in the previous game.

This game, or shall I say experience, is truly an unknown Gem. It is remarkable, and it is sad that it is not too well known. I didn't even know of its existence until it was on sale and steam recommended it to me, and I bought it due to the fact it reminded me of the Fallout series.
This game is brilliant, as well as its predecessor Metro: 2033 Redux. They both leave you with an eerie feeling that sticks with you, sort of indescribable. The overall tone of this game is of morality, it glimpses to the past and evaluates its crimes committed. Ultimately leading to a morbid journey through trials that is to undue the sins of the past.
~Some Pros/cons I compiled. ~
Pros:
+ Morality has its role to play.
+ Its story progresses smoothly, and goes off soon after the ending of its previous game.
+ Gorgeous, very atmospheric and it completely immerses you into this world of post-apocalyptic Russia.
+ It's combat system is very well laid out, you can choose to be stealthy or simply go full on into combat.
+ You get to choose from a nice array of weaponry, as well as possess some nice upgrades for them.
+The story is affected by your actions.
+They managed to include the antagonists of 'The Reds' (Communism), and 'The Reich' (Nazis) in such a way that it is not corny, but rather emphasizes the struggle not for only day to day survival in post-nuclear life but rather its political/social injustices as well.
+It includes supernatural/spiritual scenes as well, nice touch.
Cons:
- Some achievements are hard to get.
- Very few minor graphical errors.
-This game does not always hold your hand.
- It ends.

When I play this game, I have this akward sensation to burn every cobweb I see. If you want a linear, immersive, survival, story-driven, morale-questioning, shooting-stabbing, lap-dancing expierence then just get this game.

I give this game a solid rating of sligthy cracked gasmask with a full filter.

Oh, and I wasn't joking about the lap-dance part.

For those that weren't aware of Metro: Last Light its first time around, the game is a direct sequel to Metro 2033, with the plot being set forth by the last moments of 2033. Russia has been decimated by nuclear war, and the only way people were able to survive was to turn the underground metro system into makeshift settlements. Above ground, animals have mutated into horrific beasts, and mysterious psychic beings called the Dark Ones lurk both above ground and below. In Metro 2033: Last Light the monsters aren’t the only danger, as different factions from Neo-Nazis to Commies and beyond are all duking it out for a doomsday device in a civil war for control of Russia’s remains. It’s up to Artyom, the player character, to learn more about the still-mysterious Dark Ones and try to keep relative peace throughout the metro. I really enjoyed the narrative. While the plot itself isn’t terribly original, the world and characters are expanded in the way a good movie sequel grows things not simply for growth’s sake, but to make the player feel even more like they’re in a living, breathing place.
What makes Last Light shine isn’t how many things go boom or how many monsters get pumped full of lead. I mean there’s definitely action, and when it’s there it is satisfying, but where the game series as a whole really succeeded was in creating a palpable atmosphere dense with despair, anxiety, and powerlessness. In some ways Last Light improved on the immersion of Metro 2033 through fully first person cut scenes, expanding the game’s universe, and greatly improved graphics that brought out each spiderweb and puddle of mud.
With the narratives and worlds so tied together it seemed a bit jarring that gameplay took such a sudden change in direction. Thankfully herein lies, in my opinion, the biggest positive about Last Light’s re-release treatment. Now fans of both styles can be happy, as the game lets people choose from the get-go whether they’d like to play the more action-oriented style of the original, or boost up enemy damage and scale back the amount of resources available to play in the style of 2033.
Unfortunately some of the other improvements that Redux boasts end up being largely inconsequential. While graphics technology has improved noticeably since the franchise’s freshman effort in 2010, I really didn’t notice anything looking particularly better in this version than in the Last Light of 2013. I’m sure that if compared side by side there’s probably a few nicer textures and models here and there, but all in all tech just hasn’t developed enough since then to make the visuals a viable reason to upgrade. Don’t, however, confuse that for me being displeased with the way things look. Though the game takes place in underground tunnels and barren wastelands, the game still manages to keep the screen from turning into the brown soup that so many desolate games do.
The art direction helps things too. Everything from the weapons to the underground "buildings" feel ready to fall apart at any moment, and the various people drinking around fires, shopping, and just generally going about their daily lives give the settlements in particular an organic, personable vibe that pull you into the world of Metro that much more. So while none of this is particularly different from the original release to Redux, it’s still pretty darned good.
Whether or not you find Metro: Last Light Redux worth the money is going to depend entirely on what you’re buying it for. If you’re someone who’s never played the game, or if you’re someone like me that liked 2033 but didn’t appreciate the pacing changes the sequel brought, then yes, pull the trigger. The game becomes much more of a survival-horror title with the new available options, and if you’re new you can try both styles and decide for yourself. Otherwise, there’s really no reason to prefer the original over this remastering. The audio visual improvements are modest, and the added content of the DLCs are relatively miniscule. All in all, I myself had a great time with the title, and the Metro franchise is still one nuclear winter I never want to turn to spring.
