Metro Last Light continues from the ending in 2033 where Artyom destroys the Dark Ones nest with missiles, ever since launching the missiles Artyom who has been made a Ranger has been suffering from nightmares, after waking up he is greeted by Khan who informs him that he has found a remaining Dark One at the ruins of the nest but only a baby, Artyom and Khan inform Miller of this discovery but Miller orders Artyom to kill the creature and sends along a sniper with him named Anna, shortly after Artyom and Anna make it to the nest of the Dark Ones and find the baby, Artyom corners the baby but it manages to knock him unconscious with it’s powers, when Artyom finally wakes he realises he has been captured by the Nazis, it is here that Artyom meets Pavel a Red Line soldier who helps Artyom escape the Nazi prison, during the escape Artyom overhears that the Dark One baby has been moved to another location, so with Pavel he sets out to find the baby Dark One and fulfill his mission.
Metro Last Light Redux is a First Person Shooter, Survival Horror game with a heavy emphasis on stealth, there isn’t a lot of differences between this game and 2033 Redux as the gameplay is the exact same engine, but if it’s not broken don’t fix it, the only real difference I can think of is that there are a lot more Human enemy encounters than 2033, once again you are tasked with fighting off mutants, scavenging ammo and surviving post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro Last Light does have quite a few DLC additions included with the game with my favorite being Kshatriya where you are a soldier in a base, that has to venture up into the wastes above to collect artifacts from the old world, which you can trade for money to buy better equipment, filters and medkits so you can go further into the ruins to get better artifacts and fight stronger enemies, the others weren’t anything special just being normal campaigns where you have to get from point A to point B.
Last Light Redux pulls the same sound design as 2033 Redux all be it actors, gunshots as well as other things so really there isn’t much to comment on since the same laws apply to this game, like the silly accents, but luckily Pavel is one of the best companions to have in a post apocalyptic world since he is very cheerful and voiced brilliantly, as I forgot to mention in my previous review there is an option to change the voices to Russian but I prefer to hear things in my native language.
The original Metro Last Light was an already fine looking game, so unlike 2033 there wasn’t a complete graphical overhaul, there however there has been a major upgrade to the lighting, detail and pretty much everything else to the game, making Redux in a whole one of the best looking PS4 games yet.
The Lasting Appeal
Metro Last Light Redux has quite a bit of content packed in compared to 2033, the campaign alone is about 12-15 hours but there is also quite a few DLC packs tucked in which add another 2-3 hours content to the package, they aren’t too interesting apart from Kshatriya which was very fun to play but other as weren’t that special but they add content to the package so I cant really complain, once again there are new trophies to acquire so this game could keep you busy for a while.
Metro Last Light is one of my favorite games ever and when I heard it was getting a release on PS4 I couldn’t resist the temptation of playing this masterpiece on PS4, with Fantastic Graphics, some of the best Gameplay ever in a First Person Shooter all rounded off with a load of content and a Wonderful story, Metro Last Light alone is a game that everyone must experience, especially now that it’s also on Next-Gen consoles. Seriously Play It.
My Score – 10/10
- Wonderful Story
- Great Gameplay
- Lots of Content
- Beautiful Visuals
