View Full Version : Tunnel Vision: Eyes-On With Metro: Last Light

Er, I suppose thereā??s some uncertainty (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/12/19/thq-filing-for-bankruptcy-selling-off-assets/) that Metro: Last Light (http://www.enterthemetro.com) might actually be released, but for now letā??s proceed on the basis that THQ have managed to save themselves from the moneyan apocalypse.

Last Light, from an hour or so I spent watching real-time play recently, appears to be almost a do-over of the ambitious but awkward Metro 2033 rather than a traditional sequel. Itā??s rescuing and remixing the stuff that worked but, as far as I can tell, without devolving into a shiny Call of Dudebro affair. That critical switching between indoor and outdoor action and gun-free survivor settlements remains, as does the strange bullets-as-currency system. Itā??s much more like 2033 than Iā??d presumed, Iā??m relived to find, glossier though it may be.
