What makes Metro: Last Light so playable?
Just like its predecessor Metro 2033, Metro: Last Light breathes the spirit of the legendary Chernobyl shooter Stalker. As Artyom you will explore post-apocalyptic Moscow – more precisely, mostly the tunnels of the subway into which humanity has retreated after a nuclear catastrophe. In a plus record, we analyzed the appeal and the special challenges of this scenario:

Last Light tells a story in around eight hours gripping story about treason, an old guilt and an impending genocide. In order to understand all the connections, however, you should have played Metro 2033, which Last Light is directly linked to.
A linear, neatly balanced mixture of shooting, sneaking and quiet story sections awaits you in a playful way. If you want to get an impression, we recommend our test video:

If you have a heart for atmospheric horror shooters, you should definitely not miss Metro: Last Light – in this discipline the title is at the forefront even six years after its release.
The Redux variant also pretties the game in a few places compared to the original and improves the AI. In addition, you can activate a new survival mode with “Survivor” style, which lets you reload more slowly, reduces ammunition and makes the enemy a little stronger.
With eight hours you get a really great pastime for the first New Year’s weekend. Unless you’re afraid of spiders. Then – and we’re really serious about this – you should keep your hands off Metro: Last Light Redux. But only then.
