    A sequel to Metro 2033, and a Redux version. The game continues the story of Metro 2033, which this time surface areas during spring orA sequel to Metro 2033, and a Redux version. The game continues the story of Metro 2033, which this time surface areas during spring or summer. Mutants that were briefly shown in 2033 now get their own levels and even a few bosses. Does this improve the game though? Well...

    Frankly, i liked Metro 2033 better. Clearly Last Light's hand holding and pacing is influenced by the domination of Call of Duty during the 2010's, which doesn't do it good. Unnecessary exposition which is forced upon you like grabbing a jumping pool damages the experience more than improve it, as it takes away the immersion. The big enemy of this one, the russians, are also not a very intimidating enemy.

    In Metro 2033, levels would be switching between mutants and human enemies. However in Last Light, the early levels are mostly human enemies one after another, which takes away a lot of enjoyment. Once you get past this though the game gets back to mutants, which are the more interesting levels.

    The story starts a bit stiff, with a unsatisfying tour through Nazi and Russian levels. After this the atmospheric mutant levels finally pick up though, and it feels instantly familiar to Metro 2033. The story focusses this time on the russians and the last surviving dark one, which doesn't really interest me. However, the good ending of this game was well written and makes up for a lot of stuff.

    Gunplay is like metro 2033, with this time some more weapons and equipment. However, it might as well could have stayed the same as with Metro 2033 as the new guns don't impress a lot.

    Also there are boss fights now! And they are quite underwhelming and unnecessary. This really has no place in these games.

    All and all an excellent game, but not as good as Metro 2033 in my opinion. Bigger levels and more handholding don't improve the experience. I give it an 8/10.

The graphics are improved, framerate is great and all the dlc is bundled in to add some extra hours in for players, but what was already established in the original (aside from the Ranger Mode DLC controversy) was already great to start with. Those that have played the game before, there is little reason to return back to it, but for those interested and never have played the series, it's a must-play. Though its second half starts to involve too much mysticism that the first manage to gradually introduce and end on a great note, the pacing is always top notch with new areas, situations and fights to keep things fresh.

It surpasses its predecessor in some ways, such as the visuals and exploration opportunities. However, the emphasis is more on action and less on survival horror this time around, so the atmosphere is not nearly as tense or as impressive as in Metro 2033. If you're looking for horror, stronger story-telling and intense atmosphere, choose 2033. If you prefer a more Call of Duty style approach, pick up Last Light. Expand
