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.

Highly recomended! One of the best FPS I've played. Love the story. Since Steam is offering you to play this game with Controller and link then go a head and USE it. The best in the middle of the night.
P.S.
I thought that no video game would never make me scare but I was wrong about this one. Once I entered in a room full with ghosts I didn't wanted to leave it and stay in the corner with face directed to the wall

Metro: Last Light Redux

This review may contain spoilers, continue reading at your own risk
The 'Metro' games are excellent. They are based off the popular post apocalyptic fiction book by Dmitri Glukhovsky. Metro Last Light does not follow the story line in the book, instead it is a direct sequel to Metro 2033 (the game and book). Metro LL (last light) is a game I believe everyone should try.

Graphics

If you have heard of this game, which you probably have, it is not unknown that this game is visually outstanding. On my GTX 970 I had the game maxed out with a high framerate, well the majority of the time. Entering the mission often made my frames drop but thats too be expected with this game. The attention to detail is phenomenal, every part of the Metro has been carefully engineered with precision to create the look of a worn and dying civilization. This attention to detail creates an immersive and atmospheric game.

Gameplay

Just like the original game Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light is played from the perspective of Artyom, your player character. The story takes place in post-apocalyptic Moscow, mostly inside the metro system, but occasionally missions bring you above ground.
As a first person shooter, the gunplay has to be perfect if the developers wish for success, they have got it right. There is a small selection of weapons, which was suprising, but the customisation compensates for that. Who needs a sniper when you can find a revolver and add an IR sight and a stock; even a suppressor for you stealth fanatics.
The games plot is excellent. The Metro is very atmospheric and immersive thanks too the excellent graphics, the slow paced solo guitar music and the excellent plot. I won't go into detail as I don't want to ruin the stroy for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of experiencing the Metro games. Essentially you, Artyom, wipe out the Dark Ones with a plethora of nuclear bombs- or so you thought. Intense radiation plagues the streets; which has caused mutation in many species turning them violent, untamable and monstrous.On the way you meet people , meet the civilizations (Hanza, Reich, The Order) and have a great time. There is a sexual nature to some of the scenes so do take that into account. The game does seem to throw enemies at you sometimes which to me could be the downfall of the gameplay.

Music/SFX/Voice Acting

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQg2RZ7Bd7g

The music is good in this game, as of now I don't have a good headset so the audio isn't of a good quality; but the music and sounds in this game were great. One of my weaknesses in games is that I somehow block out music and it tends not to register in my mind, or my brain disregards it- but I have listened to the starting music multiple times and it creates an aura of atmopshere, a post apocalyptic atmopshere. As you listen you can imagine the sadness in the citizens of the Metro, its played by one person- with a guitar ,I'm not sure which type. He is playing slow notes in a memorable tune which masterfully creates atmopshere.
The gunshots in this game sound on par with modern military games which is great, the sounds of the beast are definately threatening and after you encounter one, you are always weary of hearing a battlecry of the beasts.
As this game is set in Russia, they had to find talented voice actors that could speak English with a Russian accent, they did a good job overall, although some of the charcters were clearly faking the accent which at some point sucked me out of the immersive grip that the Graphics and Gameplay had on me.
Conclusion

Overall this game is a must play from me, works great on PC with keyboard and mouse, and I'm guessing a contoller would work well too. The game has great gunplay and a stellar story line, which can be let down by the feeling that the game throws hordes of enemies at you for nothing else than to make you have more gametime. The music and SFX are good but the voice acting feels lacking for some but most characters are excellently voice acted.

This game gets a :

9/10

Do you know the quote from Fallout games; "War, war never changes"
You will see how true that sentence is after playing Metro!
Metro games have the most intense atmosphere I have ever seen in a game. Story is also really good since it is based on a novel. I recommend it to play in ranger hardcore mod. It made me rage quit from time to time but I couldn't resist to come back playing after 5 min.
