Mashable: "There’s a lot that goes into making an exceptional cake. Sure, you can use the best ingredients, mix it perfectly, neatly put it into pans and pop it into your oven for the allotted time. But if you’re not paying close attention, you may not realize that your oven is cooking unevenly. The result? A woefully slanted cake, overbaked in some areas and underbaked in others.
First person sci-fi shooter Metro: Last Light is a slanted cake. While there is an intriguing concept and some flashes of great gameplay, a large portion of the game is wildly inconsistent — and practically nothing can be praised all the way through."
