Rated 9 out of 10 by Coolyo Not just an FPS
Metro Last Light is truly a great game, being different from all others but it's previous one. The games pros include it's story, where you play as Artyom, a ranger, in search for the last dark one after you nuked its people. The story is wild, and always fun. There are plenty of levels, all not being too long so it can keep you engaged, which I absolutely was. I played for more than 5 hours at a time. Although the game only has a campaign, you will want to play again in harder difficulties, and the DLC is definitely worth a look. The world is also a masterpiece, showing the desperation and cool wasteland above and below ground. The only cons are some graphical glitches (I don't really care about graphics, I play the first Wolfenstein, trust me), and some stealth issues where they should've honestly seen you at times. I don't really care though, since the game is hard enough and it can almost be a pro since it makes it so enjoyable. Overall it's amazing.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ReaperKiller Now in my top 3 for the Survival/Horror genre
First off if you haven't played Metro 2033, do yourself a favor and play that first....
The Good: Metro Last Light nails intense survival gameplay and immersive storytelling like no other game 4A studios did an amazing job from start to finish with every ounce of detail and depressing atmosphere, awesome weapons, linearity with purpose, and still somehow plenty to explore. I've not been so sucked into a story in a very long time
The Bad: If you played Metro 2033 you know that the A.I. was broken, but in my opinion it made the game so much better, one wrong move and it was game over, in Metro Last Light ( and im guessing to try to bring to a more mainstream crowd), they dumbed down the A.I. for the human enemies you face, ALOT. It's kind of sad and definitely took away from a nearly perfect game.... and the only reason I gave this game a 9 instead of a 10.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fergg Pure excellence.
To be completely honest, I never played metro 2033, and I had never seen anything on this game besides one trailer that was released in 2010, possibly the first trailer. Other than that this game has been quite a mystery, but I can tell you that this game is absolutely amazing and I consider this being one of those games that is 100% necessary in the industry. We as gamers are plagued by sequel after sequel, the same generic engines, and boring, repetitive experiences. It takes games like this to really ask yourself why studios with a 500 person staff can't create a truly immersive, different, experience like 4a games has done here with only a 50 person team. This game is in the same field as Bioshock infinite (which was amazing) and I am a HUGE Bioshock fan. I came into Metro Last Light with close to zero information on the game I picked it up hoping for the best and now that I'm probably halfway through, I am utterly blown away. With games like telltale's the Walking Dead, Bioshock Infinite, and Metro Last Light, maybe the game industry is proving something to itself, that games are art and not a cash cow, drained to its core and sucked dry.
Rated 9 out of 10 by jsb2853 Fantastic FPS hybrid
Last Light focuses a lot on the storyline and wants players to connect with the protagonist beyond your typical FPS. This is not to say there isn't a lot of shooting and fun toys to kill things with, but this is only a part of the game instead of the entire experience. Stealth is also a significant mechanic in the gameplay being that ones timing may mean the difference between life or death. The game at this point is a little rough with minor sound and graphics glitches here and there, but nothing a future patch and added attention to DLC won't cure. Adding multiplayer in some fashion wouldn't hurt either. Bottom line is that I specifically made the effort to write this review because the game is well worth the play despite these minor issues for those who want a FPS that's more than just run and gun.
Rated 10 out of 10 by HarryChester it was interesting
The story was awful buy the lighter and the clipboard inspired me to give this game an a+ because it was so high def. The game actually reminded me of myself as a kid playing with my lighter and thinking it was amazing. The story was plain but thank you for the effort into the lighter and clipboard making them amazing and stuff. The lighter inspired me to become the person I am today. Well thank you for the amazing opportunity to use such a tool/lifesaver

Rated 7 out of 10 by MattYJ98 It could've been better
I honestly thought this game was going to be good before I got it. I read some good reviews so I thought, why not? The first day I played the game, I was pretty into it. I understood what was going on in the story. The game mechanics are kinda flawed in the fact that if your in the "dark" you can be seen. The throwing knives are OP, the guns are nerfed, but the takedown animations are pretty sweet. The voice acting was AWFUL. At times more than one person is talking or a long silence when there should be talking. I have to say, the game is pretty good overall but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has played better games.
Rated 4 out of 10 by CAP198462 Metro delivers diminishing returns
Immersion: Audio is a big issue with this game. Will you play it with English audio or English subtitles. The choice players make here affects their enjoyment of the rest of the game, choose carefully. The plot is there and not, but never really emotionally involving. Grahpically sure it's impressive the first time, but it gets old very quickly. Difficulty: Don't even ask, it's too controversial, think of The Dead Space games (1-2) and you have a good idea. Lasting Appeal: Very little, no horde mode, no challenge mode, all you get is replaying the story again and again, and the game isn't that compelling after about an hour of gameplay.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Blackthunder125 Very little roam freedom. Restrictive gameplay.
This is a game that I very much looked forward to but was disappointed when I played it. Not to say its a bad game but it's not for me. Most of the game theres a guy with you who does not shut up. His constant observations and ramblings get really tiresome. There are constant cut-scenes holding you by the hand and leading you on. When traveling, theres really nowhere to go but where the game leads you. You really have to enjoy a stealthy approach to appreciate this game. The graphics are very nice. Being a Crysis 3 kinda gamer, I like to be able to roam and approach situations my way but with Metro, there is none of that.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Dorby5826and360 The sequel to an underrated game.
When I first played the game Metro 2033 I fell in love with the game. Yes, that game does have many flaws since it was technically a low budget game, but the game felt so unique and fun. Metro 2033 was such an underrated game that should have had more attention then it did. I will definitely be pick this game up and playing it. P.S. if you have a powerful PC, I would recommend that you buy it for that instead of the console version, although the console version will not be bad either.
