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

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

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!

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!

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.

● Gender and race discrimination. I'm not saying that all games have to feature a diverse group of characters but I should note that this particular product is focused around caucasian males. This game doesn't have a single character that isn't caucasian and only has a single female soldier.

● 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.

Poor business and digital rights management decision!

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.

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.

After overcoming some crash issues, this is one of the best game I've played.

The metro series have proven to have a great story and gameplay; it really takes you to the gritty life of living underground away from post-war nuclear radiation, and telling the story that no matter what hardship humans go through, they don't change much.

great game'

Fitting tale and finale to the story of Artyom, the redux of both games is much more efficient and superior to the original of either. I recomend Last Light only be played after 2033, very story driven, Intense Stealth and Combat.

This was originally going to be a Steam recommendation but I found the character limit on recommendations so this will only have excerpts from the original blog post, which can be found here: http://wp.me/p4fZDz-1T6

If you’re wondering why I’m reviewing this game with a scant couple of hours on Steam's record, most of the playtime went into the original Metro: Last Light edition with over 12 hours worth of playtime sunk into it. As I feel the differences between the original and Redux are pretty negligible, I’m confident that my opinion fits for both editions. This was going to be a double review for both editions but the original edition of Last Light was pulled from Steam recently so I decided to combine it into one review.

The game comes off as an overpriced Game-of-the-Year edition with a patch to fix some, but not all, of the problems the original game had. Really, it’s kind of insulting how many bugs and glitches survived to this re-release of Last Light. For myself, I ran into a game-crashing bug during the walk with Khan in the level “Quarantine”. I was heading over to the gun merchant when the game suddenly freezes and crashes. There wasn’t any indication of what caused it. The only way to get around it was to load the chapter itself, not the auto-save. There was also animation, texture oddities and mutant attack issues that you could notice from time to time. I would also notice characters speaking over each other. There are also numerous reports on the Steam forums of bugs and crashes so this is definitely a touchy game.

The stealth system. It basically boils down to: stay in the shadows, don’t run and use silenced weapons/takedowns. Unless you really screw up or get impatient, the AI will never pick up that you were/are there. Even if you are standing five inches away from their face. The stealth system is two-dimensional and about as deep as a puddle. It is slightly better balanced than the Redux edition of Metro 2033 but I think that’s because the entire game was made with this stealth system in mind rather than tacked on later.

Combat system isn’t quite as bad as Metro 2033 Redux’s but it isn’t that much better. A lot of enemies are bullet sponges and there are a lot of them. I don’t like the Ranger-setting restricting you to two weapons only but that’s a personal preference. Considering there are a lot of interesting weapons in the game, you really don’t get a lot of chance to hold and keep them as you’ll need silenced weapons on some levels and then fully-automatic weapons at other levels. Secondary weapons like knives are still handled poorly with the “press shift then move your mouse in the direction of the weapon you want” design. Far too many times, I would select what I thought were anti-personnel mines only to press the secondary weapon button and throw a knife. Cute. Keys 6-9 still exist Metro devs and they work wonders over your current implementation. Hitboxes still feel wonky but it’s hard to place why.

The journey itself through the Metro is still very immersive. The game is focused on presenting and enveloping you in the atmosphere of the Russian Metro in a post-apocalyptic future. Which, they pull of to a fantastic degree. I really have to give them kudos on this part because this was what kept me going through the game. Everything from wiping the swamp water or blood off your gas mask to the howling winds on the surface to the slowed progress you make through thick spiderwebs (that can be burned with your lighter). There’s a lot of world detail in this game and this part simply oozes polish. Even the recharging of certain weapons and your power for the flashlight and/or night vision, which would normally seem pointless otherwise, fits so well in this type of game. Credit given where it’s due, this game executes the world’s atmosphere excellently.

But, I can’t recommend Metro: Last Light Redux for new or returning players. Additionally, if you already have the original edition of Last Light, play it instead. Otherwise, you’re basically paying for an overpriced patch. To be frank, I feel cheated for having bought the Redux editions when compared to the original editions that I own. After all, it seems like they didn’t even take the time to make sure all of the bugs and glitches of the original were fixed. Worse still, is that the Mac and Linux versions haven’t been released yet. Granted, we’re still within the stated release date of “later this year” but we’re getting into November now. Time is running out.
