I never review games but had to do this one. I did not like this game at all. For being released this year, the graphics were a few years behind outdated. Gameplay is straightforward and leaves not much for exploring or adventuring. Your Russian 'comrade' spouts random Russian nonsense all the time. Not much variety to the gun types to chose from and very little upgrading them. There's even an alien life form tie-in but no future-tech to play with! I was excited to play this game but was horribly disappointed. Sent it back after a few hours playing and it was the same thing over and over.
I equate this game to Fallout meets Deus Ex but they took none of the good things from these games. All I have to say is thank goodness for GameFly so I didn't have to pay for this.
this is game is good enough to play but it does have problems.
Cons: when your on your own you don't know where to go. theirs no way point on where it tells you to go. since theirs no way point your out in the open facing all of these mutants who just want to rip your head off. and you have to kill demons that are trying to kill you. plus you run out of ammo very quickly.
Pros: the story line is great a lot of plot twists. and a lot of things that go unexpectedly wrong. action pack, graphics are good. intense. its a little bit like fallout 3 where you can buy or sell weapons, ammo, plus the money in the game is bullets. theirs even a bit of romance too. is it worth your money to buy? maybe. depends on how you feel about this game.

Metro: Last Light is a great FPS game that vastly improves over the first in the series, Metro 2033. It is an immersive experience that takes place in a post-apocalyptic Russia. Your time will be split between exploring the dark, dank railway stations that now serve as makeshift cities and the barren outside surface. Not only will the radioactive mutants be a problem, but you will have to deal with the various factions that are struggling for control of the D6 station's resources. Although the game is fairly linear, you will be rewarded for exploring when you can. Some rather creepy events can be found when doing some non-story related exploring. For those that have played 2033, I will list what improvements have been made from that game: improved stealth, greater selection of weapons and customization of weapons, improved weapon accuracy, gun sights aren't dirty/cloudy, improved item interface, and environmental factors don't hinder your experience as much. If you are looking for a good shooter, you have found it.
