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.

    • 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

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.

-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.

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)

I got into the Metro series a little late, but I've thoroughly enjoyed Last Light. If I were to paraphrase my experience: frustratingly fun. Last Light feeds into my love for FPS games, as all you're doing is shooting people or creatures. There is an option to knife/melee, but other than that, it's primarily gun play. The atmosphere of this game is dark, and I don't mean the story. For the most part, you're playing in some part of the map that is dark and difficult to see. This element was done to help make the player on edge and "scared" of what may be around them.

When you start the game, you're given two options which are either the game gives you more ammo and isn't as punishing if you just unload your weapon, or, essentially, hardcore, where ammo is scarce. Even if you choose the former, ammo is still scarce. There were a few times where I ran out of ammo and non was around, so had to reload an earlier check point. Personally, I'm not a fan of this. I know a lot of people are, but I don't want to spend five-ten minutes just trying to gather supplies.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake of playing Last Light first, as I didn't know 2033 was the first game. It is highly advised to play 2033 first to help you understand the story characters better/ Eventually you kind of figure it out, but you're still left confused about certain characters. As this is the redux version, we can go back into the story and play from another character's perspective. This is a fantastic option! I've not seen many games offer this.

There were some parts in the game that I felt weren't helpful and were meant for raging. It's bad enough when you have an invincible demon in the sky trying to swoop you up, but to make matters worse, there are these water creatures that come out of the water, shoot things at you, and/or just follow you and are invincible. Oh, and if you go in the water, there's a creature that insta-kills you. I raged..hard.

Gun wise, I felt the developers did a fantastic job differentiating between the guns and accurately depicting their power. For example, my favorite gun to use was the Revolver. It packed quite a punch, and was pretty accurate.

One element I hadn't been expecting that I enjoyed very much was that we could use our lighter to burn up cobwebs and/or light wall torches. This is probably one of the best mechanics I've seen in a while! It's not often you see a game which actually has your lighter burning things when you're near/touching them. Brownie points to the devs!

Finally, I took the time to explore this game. Explore the surroundings, the people. Today we don't see this as ever happening, impossible, right? But to imagine it. To imagine that something happens and we're forced underground like they are. I may be in the minority here, but games like this really make me think about something that could happen, albeit a very far fetched chance.

All in all, and raging aside, I quite enjoyed this game.


Positives:

  • Good graphics + animation.
  • Good story + voice acting.
  • Good gunplay.
  • Fantastic job of giving us a little fear element in certain parts of the game.
  • Continued the Metro story very nicely.
  • Full controller support.
  • Nudity ('Cause nudity is always nice. :P)
  • Lighter burns cobwebs and lights torches.
  • Trading cards.
  • Steam achievements.


Negatives:

  • Spiders. Oh lawd did I get so creeped out by the spiders in this game! You lose those brownie points for that! (I'm kidding, by the way)
  • Certain points in the game felt like the intent was to make you rage. Certain parts were just difficult and took too long to complete.

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.

[note: basically the same review as for Metro 2033. They are nearly indistinguishable.]

A positive review with a major caveat: This is not quite the worthy spiritual sequel to STALKER that it is made out to be.

If you're coming from STALKER, as I am, prepare to be underwhelmed. The game is nowhere near as hard as it's made out to be. I played on hardest difficulty + Spartan + ranger mode and never had more trouble than an average map in STALKER (and to the degree it *is* hard it's usually due to poor design, such as sudden scripted rushes of enemies (especially bad in Last Light), or poor checkpoint placement (also especially bad in Last Light). Anomalies are there, technically, in the DLC, but certainly aren't a real part of the game. The maps are linear. The world is also unexpectedly bright--ambient light abounds. On the surface during the day it's almost sunny--certainly not the oppressive atmosphere I was expecting--and underground it's as if the developers couldn't hold themselves back from placing glowing mushrooms in every corridor. Consequently, though the game was certainly tense, I never felt afraid the way I would exploring a lab in STALKER.

A great sequal to Metro 2033. I loved this series. If you're looking for a break from generic FPS shoot em up style games the storyline in additon with game mechanics like health and air filters make the game a lot more interesting and keep you on edge. It really feels like you're in a post apocolyptic russia trying to survive. After playing both the first and second game I've fell in love with the story and I feel like I should go and get the books too. This game pays attention to detail everything is dirty and rusty. There is rubble everywhere. The atomosphere in this game is perfect. The Enemies are challenging. I love the extra challenge mode the game offers called ranger mode. It removes GUI's makes health and ammo a lot more scarce and adds an extra layer of difficulty to the game which is a great thing since I was coming from playing the first game.

This game tought me, that I can't spend all my money and ammo on strippers, because I might have to shoot myself through a radioactive swamp only 10 minutes later. And it tought this lesson to me the hard way.

Blayt! What are you waiting for, chuvak? Get this game!

I picked Metro Last Light and Metro 2033 redux versions on a Steam sale for dirt cheap ($4.99 each) and actually didn't boot up Last Light for almost a year because I was preoccupied with other games. On the one hand, I could kick myself for not playing it earlier -- on the other, this game was a really pleasant surprise.

Simply put, Last Light is much, much better than I expected it would be. There are so many games set in dark, dystopian futures, with the same muted colors and razor-thin plots that, if you've come late to the Metro franchise as I have, it's easy to look at the gameplay vids and screens and wave them off as a jaded gamer.

But this isn't a game that takes its setting for granted, or uses a post-apocalyptic setting for shallow purposes. There's a real story here, real world-building, real lore. Everything you see and encounter is there for a reason -- including the Metro stations themselves, the radiated surface, the factions and the personalities.

Pros:

- Well-written characters with distinct and amusing personalities
- Exceptional graphics: Metro Last Light looks better, as a 2014 redux, than many major 2016 titles
- The combat and gunplay is fun, smooth and intuitive
- Even in English, the dialog is peppered with interesting Russian slang and colloquialisms
- Likewise, the voice acting is top notch
- The game guides you, but it never feels like it's pushing you. It's a nice balance
- Last Light accommodates not only several difficulty levels, but also playstyles: You can play a more low-key, survival-style version with stealth mechanics, or you can play a more direct action-oriented shooter style which still gives you the option to be stealthy

Cons:

- The gun swapping and upgrading system isn't as intuitive as the rest of the game. Some of the guns don't behave the way you'd expect them to based on the type of weapons they are, and the store/purchasing system is a bit odd
- I don't like it when games, especially shooters, hide items in obscure places and force you to stalk around every map, looking in every nook and cranny lest you miss something important. Last Light isn't as bad as some games in this respect, but it's an element of game design I dislike.
- Lack of Vladimir Putin
- No MetArt girls. This is Russia. There should be amazing MetArt girls!

Overall: Highly recommended

Not the typical game in my Steam collection… but well worth the purchase. I picked it up on sale for $5.49, and I’ve had a solid 11 hours of gameplay out of it. That’s a lot of bang for your buck. And I haven’t even loaded up the 10+ hrs of free DLCs that came with the "Redux" version of the game.

Metro: Last Light is a beautiful atmospheric (+++) survival game with just the right combination of action, stealth, and horror. With 3 gameplay modes (Spartan, Survival, and Ranger... no HUD, scarce resources, etc.), you can progress through the game whichever way you’d like. There are adrenaline levels (running out of air, a few jump-scares, timed missions, etc.), exploration levels (underground ‘slums’ and militia camps), and of course a couple of tough boss levels.

Very well-rounded for a single-player campaign game.

Thumbs up.
