    The game becomes much more of a survival-horror title with the new available options, and if you’re new you can try both styles and decide for yourself. Otherwise, there’s really no reason to prefer the original over this remastering.

    I realise all these caveats render a scored review somewhat meaningless, so the takeaway message is this; if you've never played Last Light, you should – it's an excellent game, and you should opt for this version. If you've already played it, however, you don't need to upgrade.

    Still as atmospheric and impressively grim as it was last year, but inessential if you have the original.

    If someone owns Metro: Last Light, there's absolutely no reason to buy the Redux version. Graphically its the very same game, while the DLC content and the Survival/Spartan mode are not enough to justify this new release and the 20 euros price, even with the differentiation the later offers to the gameplay. On the other hand, whoever hasn't played the original game yet, has another good reason to do it now.

    It certainly rides on the coattails of 2033 Redux’s release, but it’s still incredibly fun. If anything, it’s a testament to how much fun Last Light was to begin with.

    Basically the only shooter I've enjoyed since the very early CODs (for example the second one)

    Great game 10/10 would buy again especially from this noob studio who worked in what seems to be a !!!!!!3rd world!!!!!! (if that) working environment.

Its not particularly scary but it tells a dark, depressing story and engages your emotions like few games ever did. The only thing that bothered me were those forced boss fights which kind of broke the immersion for me but fortunately there were few such encounters and they were over pretty fast. Expand

    Going underground (again)

    The original Metro 2033 game was dripping with atmosphere and was a fine, if flawed, example of the survival horror genre. MLLR is less survival horror and more conventional shooter, and that’s a shame. That said, however, it’s still an atmospheric game. The Moscow subway, and the desolate surface, are realistically rendered and brought to life by some impressive creature design. There’s a good range of environments and the gameplay varies to some extent, although it remains a standard shooter at heart. The story is more developed than most and is bolstered by good voice acting. There are also some nice set-pieces and dramatic cut scenes. It’s also a shame, however, that there is very little humour. The combat is challenging at times (Survival mode – haven’t played it on Spartan yet) but is never frustrating. The controls, however, can be annoying at times, especially when using the lighter/way-finder. There are also a few bugs related to gas mask filter changes. Overall, however, MLLR is a fantastic-looking and absorbing game, even though it lacks the tension of the first.

It's the same thing is buying The Last of Us on ps3, then buying it on ps4, just a god damn waste of money, and I can't even get a refund. Expand

This game is only for highly skilled players, no one else. Expand
