Analog Addiction writes: "The Metro series is inspired by the critically acclaimed novel series of the same name, written by Russian author Dmitry Glukhousky, in 2002. Metro: Last Light is the sequel to the original 2010 released game Metro 2033, which was based entirely on the first novel in Glukhousky’s series. Last Light is different from the original game, as it takes inspiration from the book series and even Glukhousky himself helped with the game’s narrative, but it has no relation to the second novelisation. Developed by 4A Games, Last Light improves on many of the original’s shortcomings, providing an excellent experience that fans will enjoy. Metro: Last Light is a first person shooter that dares to be different. Although it doesn’t succeed 100% of the time, when it does these moments make Last Light stand out amongst its competition."
