So Metro: Last Light is an underrated, amazing game, and here’s why:
Story-Metro: Last Light takes place one year after the events of Metro 2033, following the canonical ending in which Artyom chose to proceed with the missile strike against the Dark Ones. The Rangers have since occupied the D6 military facility, a huge pre-war bunker with miles of tunnels that have yet to be fully explored, with Artyom himself now an official Ranger. Despite their best efforts, word of D6 has spread around the Metro, with rumors that the bunker may contain enough supplies to sustain the Metro indefinitely. Tensions run high as the rival factions prepare for war in the hopes of seizing the bunker and its contents for themselves. Khan, a wandering mystic, arrives at D6 to inform Artyom and the Rangers that a single Dark One survived the missile strike. Khan believes that this Dark One is the key to humanity’s future, and wants to make peace with it; Colonel Miller, the Ranger’s leader, wants to eliminate it as a potential threat. Miller sends Artyom to the surface with the mission to kill the Dark One, accompanied by Anna, Miller’s daughter and the Rangers’ best sniper. Artyom succeeds in finding the Dark One, who turns out to be just a child, but is quickly captured by soldiers of the Fourth Reich and separated from the Dark One, and of course things go downhill from there. The story for Metro: Last Light can be a little predictable at times, but it’s still fairly good, and there are some of memorable moments.
Gameplay-Metro: Last Light is quite possibly the best looking game I’ve played to this date. The Atmosphere in Metro: Last Light is flat-out incredible, and the lighting in Metro: Last Light works out really well, which also makes the stealth really great. Metro: Last Light is a First-Person Shooter, and it’s a great one at that, all the weapons in this game look, sound and shoot really well, and the enemies in Metro: Last Light are almost always unique and non-repetitive, and the AI in Metro: Last Light is really great. Another mechanic Metro: Last Light has is the Mask, which you need to survive on the outside world (because Nuclear Apocalypse) and it works out really great, cracking whenever you’re hit by an enemy, freezing if the area you’re in is cold, and you need to constantly be on the lookout for air-filters when on the surface, otherwise it’s game over. The only real problem Metro: Last Light has is that it is terrible at explaining what you’re supposed to do, like whenever an enemy was flying around and attacking me, I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to run away, shoot at it, let it catch me, or what, and other time I was fighting a Tank, and I saw it’s weak spot, so I immediately starting firing at said weak-spot, however nothing was happening, and nothing continued to happen until I shot all the wheels off the Tank, because that makes sense. Another thing Metro: Last Light doesn’t do well in, is Voice Acting, which is okay at best, however Metro: Last Light also has an epic soundtrack, so I guess that makes up for that.
All in all, Metro: Last Light is an Amazing game and defiantly worth your time and money.
