Weak

Too many glitches

This game has too many glitches for me to have any patience for levels like with the tank that I played over and over and over again only to fail each time. I could forgive a few glitches but when the sneaking kill effect freezes the game several times, that"s It. Between that and the tank you couldn't give me a copy of this game!
So to sum It up, graphics are so so at best,
Sound keeps bugging out too.
and game playability is low. It's just a poorly done game period.

The Good
Metro Last Light will make you feel lots of different emotion. Disgust love claustrophobia and loyalty. Like its predecessor Metro 2033, it continues to build on the great setting that is the postapocalyptic underground metro station of Moscow, while having a more engaging narrative. Its worth noting the sheer amount of detail the developers put into the atmosphere. Whether youre in a station-city listening to the countless conversations it's inhabitants are having, lurking for loot through frighteningly disturbing crevices with nothing but your light and your gun, or trotting through the irradiated war blasted surface area above. With the help of the fantastic graphics its all just so engrossing no matter where you are. The sound design is top notch as well, every sound effect just sounds right and the music is simply riveting
The Bad
I feel like the problems with this game mostly apply to original hardcore fans of Metro 2033. If you didnt play it, it was a very difficult game and Last Light improves on that. There were less air filters, less ammo which forced you sometimes to switch to your military grade rounds which you need to buy things. The combat in 2033 was harder, your character Artyom was more vulnerable and less powerful. Having played both I can agree that they sort of took away the feeling of really being in danger and trying to survive in these conditions. I guess you could say that they improved it too much in the eyes of original fans. Not necessarily saying that's a bad thing, this change wouldn't even phase newcomers to the series. They just strayed away from the survival elements that made the first game so insane to play. Metro Last Light feels like any other shooter in your hands in comparison. Dont get me wrong, you still need to manage all of these systems to stay alive (intact gasmasks w/ air filters & duality of choosing bullets) you just have to do it less.

Still this games fearful atmosphere really delivers. rent it biotch
