Metro: Last Light | Review (Kaboom Shark)

"Quick! What was the best aspect of Metro 2033? Its game over screen? Wrong, Timmy. Go sit in the corner. The correct answer is its atmosphere. Even if the game was a little undercooked and unfocused in places, its bleak and grimy feel was so consistent and meticulous as to be utterly absorbing. What helped this was gameplay that was rough in a good way, contributing to a sense of tension and survival that you don’t see in many shooters.

As with any sequel to a surprisingly successful cult classic, Metro: Last Light is in a difficult position. It needs to honor the elements that made its predecessor so effective, in this case the survivalist feel and atmosphere, while also pushing its concept forward and building upon the previous game’s untapped potential. Now that it’s out, is it enlightening, or should you tie it to the metro tracks?" (Michael Urban, (Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5
