Recently I was able to go hands on with Deep Silver’s upcoming title Metro: Last Light, the successor to the 2010 hit Metro 2033 and while the publishers may have changed, it looks like the game retains everything that made its predecessor successful while improving on mechanics to better serve the player and enable a more fluid gameplay experience.
Now speaking for myself, I never had the chance to sit down with the previous title Metro 2033 however immediately the one thing I noticed that makes Metro: Last Light so engaging is the fact that they managed to blend the atmosphere into the gameplay pretty much perfectly. Whether it was walking around the surface in the dead and empty Moscow, not knowing if something will jump out or attack you or whether it’s the awesome visions that are triggered by breathing in the contaminated air, allowing the player to see and hear citizens from the explosion that occurred. It’s that suspense and tension that seems to immerse you into the game, and I believe there will be even more moments like it the deeper you go into the story.

Visually, Metro: Last Light looks amazing with dynamic lighting and strong textures which makes the environment and characters just pop and come alive even on the consoles as that was the version I got to preview. I felt that they really managed to convey the dirty, grungy look of the Metro and what life is like in those tunnels.
