"Get set for another horribly beautiful adventure, in other words: a journey that's linear, but filled with punchy moment-to-moment choices, and grimly told, yet littered with tricksy humour and wonderful sights." - Eurogamer.net

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…

Metro Last Light is one gorgeous looking game. It just has so much detail in its environments, it's stunning. Besides graphics, the game has an excellent story and solid shooter mechanics and yes, even the stealth sections are handled better than it's predecessor. Stealth sections now require that you move only through the shadows, which are conveniently shown thanks to the many light sources in the rooms. The AI is particularly weak when playing stealth, since you can stand in front a guy and he won't notice you're there. Yes, this makes the game somewhat easier to play, but it also throws you out of the experience a bit. Of course, the game also has a fair share of 'just shooting things'. I think we all know what this means so forgive me for explaining. When you move to the outside (out of the tunnels), or if there's toxic laying around, you can put on your mask (or not, but you won't live long). Masks use filters so you only have a few minutes before you need to change filters or otherwise you'll die. And that's where the game disappoints again, because during my playthrough I never ran out of filters. This, too, throws you a bit out of the experience. It's nothing major, but still worth mentioning I think. The story is convincingly told and has some big over-the-top (think Call Of Duty) parts. Loved it personally. The voice acting is mostly solid, with every now and then a weakly voiced NPC inbetween. Thankfully, the more important characters are more impressive. Last Light is a very solid, enjoyable game that gives Metro the AAA status it always deserved, even if Metro 2033 wasn't polished enough to fit the description back then.
Amazing single player First Person Shooter game.kemita | June 19, 2013 | See all kemita's reviews »
This is going to be a personal review done by someone who enjoys videogames mostly as coop (2-4 players) and multiplayer (+20 players) and tends to avoid the singleplayer generic FPS games with no replay-ability that forces the player to follow a bland linear story.
I'll keep it short because if you reading this you actually care about getting the most out of your time and this game deserves your time:
Amazing graphics in PC, surprisingly good in Xbox 360 / PS3. Attention to very small details give the graphics an easy job to make you think the game and its context could be as real as any day in your life given the same events take place in it. My only complain in this, reloading animations are lighting fast but the hardest difficulty makes you properly understand why.
Another top of the line when it comes to a videogame trying to make you feel within the world it recreates for your enjoyment. From explosions to men screaming. Some guns sound a bit plastic/toy but that didn't bother me.
Although linear in its core, limited choices (only two situations where you are allowed to kill or let live) and paths that do not have any relevant impact in the ending/game, the game keeps its action packed/stealth moments and video moments in a good pace to keep you interested in wanting more.
0 spoilers here. A decent story well told throughout a videogame experience.
Is it worth it for 50€/$ . No it is not. If I had the chance I would have waited until a Steam sale for 10 bucks. Not because it is bad but because the game is good enough to just 1 play-through and then sits on your shelf/steam library for years.
Almost as good as its predecessor - minor disappointmentFluffy_McFluff | June 19, 2013 | See all Fluffy_McFluff's reviews »
Just as the graphics in Metro: 2033 were great for its time (and they still hold up well today), Metro: Last Light is visually gorgeous. Just as in its predecessor M:LL has a wonderful story to tell, narrated by the main character - Artyom - in between missions, and dialogue provided by major NPCs and the numerous other inhabitants making a living in the post-apocalyptic world.
The environments make a powerful impact on the player through visuals, environmental effects, sounds, and the inhabitants of the areas that Artyom traverses through. Lost in a dark, dank, musty, damp series of hallways, being stalked by odd light-fearing spider-like creatures - you'll feel a sense of dread. Making your way past enemy prison camps, creeping past the cells of the poor, tortured, suffering souls - you feel sympathy for the prisoners, and disgust and loathing for what humanity has succumbed to in a post-apocalyptic world.
As is the curse with most recent games, a good many things are well-polished and heavily established - but something else gets lost in the process. M:LL has outstanding visuals, engaging environments, and a moving and meaningful story to tell, but ultimately, the game is a little short - I found myself wishing the experience was twice as long as it was.
A gorgeous apocalypseTokyoUD | June 17, 2013 | See all TokyoUD's reviews »
It's atmospheric and highly immersive. Metro: Last Light is an incredible linear shooter. It can be quite challenging to survive the horrors of the Metro, whether they be frightening mutants or ruthless bandits.
Great immersive atmosphereNieves2108 | June 16, 2013 | See all Nieves2108's reviews »
As Metro 2033 Metro last light had a great atmosphere, the world detail is very impressive. The game allowed you to play the way you want to and do any little sidequest even though they have no effect on the ending. The story has a good pace and really keeps you intrigued the whole time. If you like FPS then I can recommend this game, but also if you don't like FPS games I still recommend it for the story.
