Metro: Last Light is the sequel to Metro 2033 and set against the same apocalyptic background as the previous game. Players are cast as Artyom once again, a man who has learned how to deal with a hardened, broken-down world, plagued with radiation and mutated monsters.
Metro: Last Light casts players into darkness and they must find their way through abominable lairs using naught but a lighter, flashlight and a hard-hitting arsenal of weaponry to make it through.
The game’s narrative is its strongest suit. It naturally follows on from Metro 2033 but also drives the title towards its greatest strengths.
Unfortunately, it cannot mask several weaknesses.
