Post Tunnel Vision: Eyes-On With Metro: Last Light



Er, I suppose there's some uncertainty that Metro: Last Light might actually be released, but for now let'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. It'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. It's much more like 2033 than I'd presumed, I'm relived to find, glossier though it may be.
