Summary

Post-apocalyptic stories have been done a hundred times before, especially in video games. But Metro 2033 proved that you can still create an original, engaging story from a familiar setting. With Metro: Last Light, players will get to delve deeper into the new world that has formed under the scorched Earth, and see how the planet above ground has changed as it slowly recovers.

The story follows directly from Metro 2033, in which Russian survivor Artyom destroys all of the known ‘Dark Ones’ in Moscow. They were thought to be threatening humanity’s survival, but now Arytom feels that he’s made a terrible mistake. Hailed as a hero of the Metro, he risks stardom (and his life, actually) when he discovers the existence of one last Dark One, that could just be able to help in this ruined world.

It’s a first-person shooter with thought. Weapons feel weighty but never overpowering, especially when faced with some of the mutant enemies that litter the landscape - wolf-like Watchmen, creepy spider-ants, oversized piranha fish... and not forgetting the patrolmen for every human faction in Moscow, with the city currently in civil war.

You can run in all guns blazing, but you can also choose to use stealth. If you’re bathed in light and can be spotted by the enemy, the light on Artyom’s wristwatch turns blue. If you’re in the shadows, it switches off, adding for another level of depth to the suspense-filled gameplay.
