    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.

    The world of Metro is based on the lore of the books Metro 2033, and it really feels like a lived chaotic, complex gloomy and bleak world dueThe world of Metro is based on the lore of the books Metro 2033, and it really feels like a lived chaotic, complex gloomy and bleak world due to the influence of the book/s. The game really visits all of the aspects of the world and how people adapted to live in a post apocalyptic world inhabited by deadly and scary monsters. It flushes out every little aspect if you look close enough and this creates immersion with the world that is amazingly depicting the environment and the situation of the humans, plus this is not forced on the player, which is always nice and allows for a natural discovery of the linear but exposed world of Metro.
    Given the strict linear nature of the game, the story is very scripted and linear but it offers a lot and it works very well, and feels just right that way. All though the linear script causes some gameplay issues when you can not do things differently once you got in to a sticky situation. But that is venial because the game's difficulty feels realistically rash and hard that way. The game engine was really stable and made a game from 2013 look like it was next generation, and was also able to handle environmental detail and animations to and extreme and ultimately made the game more enjoyable and good looking, besides immersive. The main menu already felt really integrated in to the feel of the world and was very well handled and simple to navigate. This applies to the in game menu and inventory and every other option, which internally does not break the immersion. The HUD is simplistic and offers just enough information and this reflects the realistic part of it and the immersion keeps going. Visual effect are amazing, with a really stable and very well performing physics system. The sound, music and audio ques are realistic and supports the already immersive and detailed world and adds to the horror/fear factor of the player. Plus the quality of them is really good. The music is also handled internally and adds to the entertainment and joy factor.
    The voice acting of characters was done really great, with and exceptional script and writing, that -as mentioned before- flushes out every aspect of the world and explores every little humanity left in the characters. The only things that where dull was the silent protagonist, which led to cringe character interactions with the playable character and the fact that dialog was not overlapping in certain situations. But this can be easily overlooked for the quality and depth of the writing.
    The AI was really well designed depending on the difficulty, and felt realistic with proper flanking maneuvers regarding the human NPC's. The boss-fights where the only thing that dragged in this area due to the tactical and strategical level needed to beat their simplistic and repetitive attacks.
    The game was really stable and handled well even on the highest settings, not one crash or bigger issues found all the way through my play-through. .
    The game mechanics was really polished as well, except for the fact that on the stealth levels of the game you avoid the human AI, which takes out the combat challenge because as mentioned before the human AI is the only one which is harder to beat. Although this acceptable due to the nature of the game, that being a stealth game as much as a linear story telling one. Even though stealth is optional it is handled well and is fun and takes practice and patients to master.
    The only bad thing that I can say about the game's linear plot is that some times the characters that you need to assassinate or save, have plot armor and it shows which makes it dull and obvious. Also the cut-scenes are the only thing that break the game flow and the ongoing immersion. At the end you get used to the fact that in every cut-scene you lose control of you character and get punished for it, by a setback or being captured.
    Overall I honestly think that this game is enjoyable, super immersive, entertaining, tells a good story and a very good one at that and is under appreciated. Ultimately it's artistic value is over the roof and it comes down to be an amazing game with great experience, even though not being perfect this is by far an amazingly executed and designed game.

    An impressive re-release for those who haven't played the Original Metro 2033 or Last Light and an ejoyable re-play if you haven't playedAn impressive re-release for those who haven't played the Original Metro 2033 or Last Light and an ejoyable re-play if you haven't played Metro 2033 since launch.
    Excellent value and significantly improved visuals over the original Metro 2033, while Last Light remains largely the same with the inclusion of all DLC.
    The price here is excellent for what is on offer, the games are bug free and well optimized and don't now require such a high end PC in today's market to get the most out of the tem, making them more accessible than the originals and certainly worth a play through.
    Really very little to complain about here, great games, improved visuals and for a great price.

    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.
