Cure for the Military Shooter

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.

Horrible

COMPLETE GARBAGE - waste of time

This is the ONLY time I've reviewed anything - ever. This game (expletive) me off so much I had to write. I have so far sat through 40 mins of this sad excuse for a game. IN THE FIRST 40 MINS OF THIS GAME, I've MAYBE played LESS THAN ONE MINUTE of ACTUAL GAME PLAY. Ridiculously long cut scenes that are hard to follow and you cant get out of. You're forced to watch at GREAT LENGTH with a controller in your hand - wondering what you've done to pi$$ off the gaming gods so much that you're forced to sit through this (expletive). Really, put this in the movie section. I don't want to WATCH a game - I WANT TO PLAY IT. I can't believe how worthless this game is. 40 mins so far and less than 1 minute of actual game play. STAY AWAY - SAVE YOUR SANITY The developers clearly did very little on this game. All you needed was a cartoonist and some beer to make the pointless movie that this ended up as.

Do yourself a favor and try any 3 of the Stalker games and then try this. even tho they're several years older they're still better. its a rip off pure and simple that lacks creativity or originality.

there is absolutely no openedness in the game design. there are some redeeming moments but they're not worth thinking about.

id take stalkers or fallout in a heart beat over this overrated and money grubbing sham of a game.

rent it if ur curious but otherwise save ur $$$$ unless u can get super cheap.
