onPause Review: Metro: Last Light

onPause writes:

After several months of jeopardy during the THQ bankruptcy the since renamed Metro: Last Light is finally seeing the light of day under publisher Deep Silver, but will it wow its players with its unique Eastern European charm and unconventional gameplay like Metro 2033 did?

The story is too old to be commented.

Really excited to play it once I get it!

Visually stunning game as well.

Sweet jebus, this game looks terrific! It's definitely much better optimized than the previous game. If you have a reasonably high end rig, you will probably be able to run it with most settings cranked with the exception of going too crazy with the AA. I'm probably going to go with 2x SSAA at most. It looks reasonably smooth and soft without SSAA, so some sort of post-processing AA seems to be applied as well, although I didn't see any listed in the in-game settings. I've only played the early stages, but so far it seems like it's more refined and smooth compared to the previous Metro game. I've only been outside once so far, but that looked pretty friggin' amazing. I'm impressed from the first hour I've played.

I'm running 660 TI SLI and with everything maxed I'm getting a solid 60FPS. It does drop to around 45-50 in outside areas with heavy action, but the game is simply gorgeous. You're right about being better optimized. 2033 is rather choppy at times, not to mention it has some clunky gameplay. Not with Last Light. Game runs smooth as butter and controls are much more perfected. I'm around 3 1/2- 4 hours in, and it's amazing so far. I'm really enjoying it a lot. Much more than 2033.

Yes, on PC this is one of the best looking games we have seen!
