When Metro 2033 came out about three years ago, it didn't make much of a splash at first. The name and cover art didn't explain much, and its publisher did not have a Call of Duty–size ad budget. By the time we understood that it was set...80

Metro: Last Light is a strikingly pretty, unexpectedly thoughtful, and hugely enjoyable trip through one of the bleakest game settings ever devised.80

When Metro 2033 was first launched three years ago, it was praised by almost everyone thanks to its setting and atmosphere. However, the game did have the nasty habit of bringing even the most powerful rigs of its time (and even some beasts right now)...85

Metro 2033 I personally considered my best FPS of 2010 but it was not without its flaws, which many gamers wouldn’t be able to see past. The guns were unsatisfying, stealth just didn’t work, checkpoints were all over the place, and there was...85

The environment really doesn't like you in Metro: Last Light. It's the same setting, true, and a lot of the same environmental challenges as its predecessor, Metro 2033, but they all seem amped up to truly diabolical levels in Last Light. And...-
