Metro: Last Light is the direct sequel to Metro 2033, and promises to fix all the complaints about the original while simultaneously looking drop-dead gorgeous and pushing your PC as far as it can go. Does it live up to the claims? Find out in our video review.
WARNING: Metro Last Light is rated R18+ in Australia. The following video contains scenes and language that are not suitable for viewers under 18.

Editor’s Note: At the time this video was being cut together, the FOV patch had not yet been released. It was made available overnight, and Steam users should update their game now to get it working.
- Drop-dead gorgeous
- Amazing atmosphere and attention to detail
- Great PC support (aside from the lack of FOV control)
- Meaty gunplay and clever mechanics
- Ultra-linear and in love with its own story
- Bad voice acting, poorly-written characters
- Makes you crawl at a snail’s pace everywhere outside of combat
- Heaps and heaps of quicktime events and silly contrived situations
