'Metro 2033 was one of those games that caught me completely by surprise. At its core it was a face shooter with all the trappings of a normal first person shooter. Well, almost all of them. Unlike a lot of the face shooters out there, you weren't barraged with a ton of enemies in overwhelming waves. The first game put you in the shoes of Artyom, one of the survivors of post-apocalyptic Moscow. Everyone has taken to the shelter of the underground metro system to avoid the irradiated surface and the mutants who dwell there. While Metro 2033 was more linear than I tend to like in my games, it didn't bother me in the slightest because it was VERY fitting for the story. I mean, if you think about it, the metro system in most major cities are very linear by nature. It wouldn't make much sense for there to be huge wide open city-sized areas underground. Metro Last Light picks up pretty much where Metro 2033 left off. You step back into the shoes of Artyom shortly after the events which took place at the end of Metro 2033.'
