    However you want to classify Metro: Last Light Redux, there’s no denying that it’s an excellent game. Both it and Metro 2033 feel right at home on the Switch, and combined, they make for a fantastic — and incredibly gloomy — experience.

    Artyom arrives at Nintendo Switch with this excellent port. It is a fun and intense game, which moves us back to the subway of that post-apocalyptic Moscow that we liked so much 7 years ago.

    Like Metro 2033 Redux, this is a must buy for anyone who loves FPS or stealth/action games, and this Switch version is probably the best of the bunch thanks to the hybrid nature of the console.

    Metro: Last Light Redux is another strong entry in the Metro franchise that adds plenty of big-budget bombast to Artyom's adventures, but truly excels when it decides to stick to the more slow-moving, methodical stealth action of its predecessor. It may not quite hit the highs of Metro 2033 and is dragged down in places by some ill-advised boss battles and a few too many hands-off, on-rails moments, but overall, this is an excellent first-person survival title, presented in a fantastic port that's an absolute must-play for FPS and horror fans.

    Metro: Last Light is included in the ‘Metro Redux’ package for the Switch. While you can certainly buy the games separately from the eShop, I think it’s still good to experience the series from its roots. You’ll notice the improvements that have been made and I believe your time with the game will be that much more satisfying. Just like with Metro 2033, this game features all of the DLC including a ‘Ranger Mode’ that offers a HUD-less, UI-less experience with more powerful enemies and even fewer resources. If you can’t get enough of the Metro experience, you’ll want to give the Ranger Mode a try.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game will keep you on the edge when exploring the environment. Always know when to on & off your Torchlight.. play in hard mode for ultimate pleasure for hardcore gamers on the Nintendo switch (learn to utilize your bullets plus master the controls first) set up the game aiming sensitivity so it won't be hard to control very helpful.
    Great story & some good likeable characters.

    A hidden gem. Very slow start might turn off a lot of players, it really starts to be fun after quite a few hours, but then it lasts. SlowA hidden gem. Very slow start might turn off a lot of players, it really starts to be fun after quite a few hours, but then it lasts. Slow atmosphere build up and a story is fantastic for those of us who read and play the first one. While I always prefer 60 fps on expense of the looks, here is 30 fps bearable, because of the slow gameplay and the looks are really sharp. Prize tag is more than a half less than Doom. Expand

    Great post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Fantastic graphics and stable frame rate even in handheld mode.
    Cons: The game is too dark although the graphics is great. It is a little bit hard to play and a lot of stressed situations even on Normal level although it is very linear. Wanted to quit it a few times because of this.
    Took 15 hours for me to finish with some additional locations exploration.
    More stealth possibilities and locations to use it if compare with 2033. More interesting places, tasks and stories then 2033. It is definitely a leap forward comparing with 2033.
    Levels load time is ok. Got a few bugs in the game like stucked in the wall or dropped off of the game with some error message from Switch. The game will take ZERO additional space on your device if you bought a physical copy which is great as a lot of games like Assassin’s Creed or Bioshock will download additional 5-10 GB of content.
