Based on the internationally bestselling novel series by Dmitry Glukhovsky.
The Metro Redux bundle includes both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux.
Both games have been remastered in the latest 4A Engine, and boast two unique playstyles - Spartan and Survival - plus the legendary Ranger Mode.
Items included in this bundle:
Metro 2033 Redux
In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the Earth's surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.
Metro Last Light Redux
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.

There were many petty gripes I had with these games - not least that they erased the originals from existence. One thing I cannot fault, however, is the atmosphere. These games are gorgeous. The kids are fairly ghastly, but beyond that they look incredible. Roaming through the tunnels of the metro is deliciously oppressive - the linear structure suits a literal railroad setting. The first game is undoubtedly better - and the original first game was better still: a 3 weapon limit is always better than 2. However, if you're in the mood you will be sucked in so far that you will require both games just to sate your appetite. I cannot fault the performance, but the English voice acting was weak at times. Subsequent playthroughs in Russian show where the true strengths lie. Taking it slow, they both clocked in around 20 hours. Last Light was shorter even with the bizarrely well hidden dlc. Buy at a discount, but definitely buy.
The metro redux bundle contains both games 2033 and last light. I originally played last light before playing 2033 and was amazed by the content and the atmosphere. I got the bundle on sale and have not been disappointed in either game so far. The updated graphics are fantastic and have made both games even more enjoyable. It's a truly unique experience of both stealth and full out firefights mixed into one and done very effectively. I would recommened buying this game if you're new or have played the older versions of the game.
Metro Redux includes both atmospheric survival FPS titles Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. The redux versions improve the graphics of the game but also enhance some gameplay features, more so with the original Metro 2033 that has gotten updated character models and control and menu options to match its improved sequel Metro Last Light. Both games feature an excellent atmosphere that has you traveling through a metro system in a world inhabited by different human factions and monsters, Metro Last Light has you spending more time on the surface in an environment just as well detailed and hostile as the underground. The redux bundle includes all of the DLC which allows you to play the more difficult ranger mode that really gives the game a more survival like feel and requires you to use more stealth and planning when it comes to dealing with enemies. Two great games worth playing in their original form and even more so with the updates or if you had missed out on the DLC and the Ranger mode on playthroughs of the original versions.
Now THIS is a complete package of the Metro games. I'm writing a separate review just to say that, if you saw screenshots, gameplays or anything and the game looked good to you, go get this pack! You won't be satisfied playing 2033 alone, you'll want more, and here it is. You'll save money, and you'll spend a great time on a long journey through post-apocalyptic stories with loads of action and stealth (you can actually choose between action or stealth on most cases).
Metro 2033 Redux is one of the best transitions I've seen in a game that wasn't all that old or that really suffered in any significant way. It was remade in a way that thoroughly improved it visually and made the gameplay much more appealing (though that is sometimes contested). Metro: Last Light didn't face as thorough of an update, but the improvements are there if you look hard enough. In general though, there's no better way to buy these games than together and in this format. In Redux, not just the story but the entire look and feel of the gameplay segues perfectly from one game to another. The games themselves are a delight to play if you're remotely interested in a single player first person shooter. Easily on par with some of the best of that genre for having a strong narrative, compelling difficulty, and fairly diverse environments and enemies. I can't say trudging through the underground tunnels of Moscow sounds like something you could call "diverse" let alone interesting, but the developers have definitely done accomplished that feat and it is a joy to experience. The atmosphere from the deepest and darkest caves and tunnels to the most caustic open areas of the surface and everything in between are designed in such a way that you always feel just uncomfortable enough to know you need to keep moving, and that works extremely well. If there's one thing I can complain about is that there are points where the pacing is just not consistent. Sometimes when you're on the surface you end up in areas where you're just simply looking around too much and you can easily get disoriented. There are also times where, in my opinion, you spend too much time just sort of hanging out fighting what amounts to 'waves' of enemies. Regardless, this package is essential for someone wanting an enjoyable single player experience with a strong narrative and gameplay that rarely disappoints.
