Metro Last Light


[link to this post]
 
Not a new clip but I hadn't picked up on this game.

I really like the look of it and would rather this than Crysis 3. Anybody know much about it?

Metro 2033 is a weird game, although it is quite good (completed it twice).

First off, you need to get used to the "Russian" accents - then you need to get used to the fact that most of the scripted is underground and thus gloomy with very little light, making targeting a problem.

While it is obstinately in the horror genre, it generally drips more doom, gloom and despondency than fear : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NV7R1bm2FBs

Not a game to be played if you are depressed!

The main problem with 2033, which hopefully will be fixed in 2034 is that it has almost no replay value - apparently it will be having a moultiplayer mode.

Consider me favourably unsettled!

Loved the ghost train bit. What is the relationship between this game and Metro Last Light?

Last light is supposed to be set a year after the first game finishes, and continues from the "bad" ending of it.

Am I right in thinking that 2033 was not released on console Toady? I really liked the look of that clip.

Thanks for those mate. smile

It's on rails (excuse the pun) but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I think I would give a future PS3 version a try. (Don't tell t2d, but I quite like the military/monster/alien genre. And whatever you do don't mention the Resistance franchise! wink).

The tram sections I think were the best bits. The sequel does have some as well, which is good - just hope its not so linear...
