    Metro Redux finally does the series justice on consoles, providing excellent visual and gameplay overhauls to both Metro 2033 and Last Light.

    In the end, it's almost more down to the things 4A did to improve the gameplay that make this pleasantly different pair of shooters stand out in their Redux iteration.

    Playing this for the first time gave me a similar feeling to playing the first Bioshock, where you were scared about what was around the next corner, but still intrigued to find out.

    Metro Redux may not offer much to entice players who have already played and enjoyed these games, but this remastered bundle is the best way for newcomers to experience the thrills and scares of this under-appreciated series.

    We can't wait for the third entry, but this is an excellent return trip to the Metro in the meantime. [Nov 2014, p.70]

    If you haven't played Metro before, now is the time to do it. The series has never been better.

    If you’ve never played Metro before, Redux is absolutely worth getting. The action may not be on par with the genre’s greats, but both games make up for that with atmosphere, exploration and setting. Just be aware that the Redux version of Last Light has few changes compared to the original.

    Metro Redux is an excellent package it contains both Metro 33 and Metro Last Light. I never played the games on the 360 but when I heardMetro Redux is an excellent package it contains both Metro 33 and Metro Last Light. I never played the games on the 360 but when I heard about it for the Xbox One it caught my attention and I wasn't disappointed. Metro has an interesting story, the post apocalyptic setting can be spooky and the variety of enemies is interesting ranging from human to monsters. Expand

    Metro Redux is the remakes for the first two Metro 2033 games that were released on last gen systems. What started out as an under-the-radarMetro Redux is the remakes for the first two Metro 2033 games that were released on last gen systems. What started out as an under-the-radar survival horror FPS has turned into one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played. While it's not perfect, the game is easily one of my favorite games I've played in awhile.
    The two games here are fairly different. While the first game introduces you to the world and characters of the series, the second game really lets loose the shackles on the world and gives you a memorable plot filled with characters that were well suited for the world they live in. The Metro games are set in a post-apocalyptic Moscow in the year 2033. Humans have to live underground in the Metro stations underneath the city itself to avoid radiation poisoning. Both games work very well to deliver a great story, moreso the second game than the first, and both really try to put you a realistic situation when you encounter some of the hideous monsters in the game. The survival horror parts of the game are really well done and do an adequate job of dealing out the scares while immersing you in the dangers of every little thing you encounter. The game really sucks you in and tries to keep you firmly in the belief that, no matter comes, you really can't do much of anything in the long term to save anything. It becomes the players job to push forward to hopefully find a way to save the human race. It's really good and the main character you play as through the game narrates the story as you go along. He does an admirable job in keeping the suspense going, even through the down times when you're in a town resupplying. Pretty much everything that deals with the story is wonderful and very suspenseful.
    The problems with the game lie in more of a technical design. While Metro 2033 is really old at this point, the second game, Last Light, was only released last year. However, neither game looks very good in the graphical department. In fact, both games look like they'd be at peace as a high-end PS2 game IMO, obviously moreso 2033 than Last Light since it is quite a bit older. Plus, getting English voice actors to play people with Russian accents was not a very good idea. Most of the characters in the game come off either over-the-top in their delivery or just phoning it in. It probably would have been better to just let everyone speak Russian with subtitles or lose the accents then leave us with what they gave us.
    Neither of these things are much of a reason not for me to recommend this game though. It's wonderful and I will be recommending it to anyone I know plays games in the future. Also, one final note: While children should not be playing these games in the first place as they deal with very serious topics and are very bloody, Metro: Last Light has a pretty good amount of Nudity in it, and at fairly surprising times. This is a warning for anyone who might be offended by something like that in their video games.

    Having played both Metro 2033 and Last Light on PC i had some reservations about buying a console Version of this game, but there is a weekHaving played both Metro 2033 and Last Light on PC i had some reservations about buying a console Version of this game, but there is a week gap between having destiny in my hands and now so i thought i would see what the Xbox One could bring to the table when it comes to other shooters like metro, i was not disappointed

    To start with they have given you rather a lot of choice on how you would like to play the game giving you an option between playing in the vein of 2033 or Last Light, and this will give you a lean towards how your preferd style of game played, very good for them who had a preference, they have scaled up 2033 very well, and even last light which is only really a year old has had some very welcome touch ups to caricatures and environments. the console version really gives the pc version a run for it's money

    the fact that this game is only year old seems to have resonated with the developers because for people who have never played Metro before £15.99 is a steal if you only want to play one to start with and even both together is a great price

    Very impressive game still a second time round
    satisfied with the purchase
