Metro: Last Light fell short of greatness. A follow up to 2010’s Metro 2033, this was the rare occasion when a sequel had room to improve upon a concept and execution rather than cynically milk what made it special into a possible franchise. It came close to doing so but in the end lacked the conviction to fully realise Dmitry Glukhovsky‘s fictional world in an interactive form. 4A Games’ have chosen to sidestep Artoym’s story and the Dark Ones to give breathing space for new perspectives within the Metro. Told as an anthology, there are three isolated stories that tell the tale of other survivors.
