"Metro: Last Light is an awkward game. It’s a game that, ironically enough, exists between two states of being. While playing 4A Games’ latest moody first-person shooter, I was completely immersed in the post-apocalyptic setting and totally engrossed in the dire narrative thanks in no small part to very clever tricks employed by the developer, keeping me hooked while playing. As soon as I stopped playing, however, if even for a few minutes, the spell was broken."
