Metro: Last Light will immerse the player in the haunting, desolate ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, one of the most richly detailed, and beautifully realised gaming worlds of modern times. Developer 4A Games will deliver a terrifying, atmospheric single-player adventure that fuses thrilling combat with exploration and survival horror to create a unique, memorable experience.
metro 2033 was a welcome post apocalyptic game with great atmosphere. The creatures were fucking scary as hell! The game was way too linear and scripted for sure, but overall a very impressive first go.
Stll prefer Stalker but both are welcome in my book and different enough to enjoy.
and that it's a little more open and freeform and less of a linear/corridor shooter
My take on this is that they wanted to stress on the whole 'subway tunnels are bad' which is why having limited freedom never bothered me much in this title. The surface levels were pretty good though and those ape things scared the shit out of me on more than one occasion.
