I would bundle 2 games for the ease of understanding.
- Metro 2033
- Metro"Last Light (2013 sequel)
Genre: Survival Horror
System: [Windows], Xbox360, PS3
Metro 2033= 8/10 Although the game is now 3-4 years old, it is still one great looking game. Please play this one before the Last light to truly appreciate both. The environments are ABSOLUTELY superb. Every detail is made to feel more authentic and different.
Metro last Light 8.9/10 :It improves on Metro 2033 in amazing manner and adds new means to make it even more beautiful. From ruins to water lakes and THAT subway mission!!!
Metro 2033= 8/10. Still looks prety amazing! it was a feat to run the game it still is.
Metro last Light 10/10: One of the most BEAUTIFUL games to be relased so far. Its very high graphics demanding and very very beautiful! Those who love high-end pretty graphics, go pick that beast up.( as for reference, my 4th generation Core i5 with 8 gb ram and 1 gb GDDR5 barely ran on medium settings.)
9/10 both series have amazing sound quality, the howling of those beasts and the scratchy sounds of those scorpions can make you wet your pants!!
Very complex story about human emotions and horror of a post apoclyptic moscow. That is filled with ghosts, aliens and haunting dreams of past!
Metro 2033: 8/10 very innovative gameplay mechanis. You cannot run in open air without masks. Its very radio acive there. VERY hard if played on hard mode. You would feel relaxed when human enemies come for you because they drop ammo when they die. When you go into wild , there’s nothng to be found except some corners of ammo crates. Those beasts dont die with a single bullet and they dont drop any ammo. So if you try to kill them all, you wont have any ammo left out in open.
Although both games are not open world, they have solid enjoyment time as you play. Have very little replayablity value. Otherwise a blast to play if you want tough and very atmospheric survival horror.
Metro 2033: 8.9/10
Metro Las Light: 9.3/10
Final Words: We all know that horror games are now becoming very action oriented and very less spooky (resident evil 6 and dead space 3 were not scary). These both games are amazing in atmosphere. MUST PLAY with headphones.
as a final word, picture this scenario :
You have ride via a mini train (one with handle to move on tracks) in broken old subway tracks.On the way, you see a door which can be opened into a hall. The hall contains a 6 barrel shotgun(very useful) and ammo in it. The main issue is that the hall is filled with scorpions bigger than a dog! They dont die easily . So you cant kill them all. No matter what you do. Only way is thay are afraid of light. You have keep charging flashlight and turn on your lighter and keep the beam posted at those scorpions . they would run away for a moment but try to attack from behind. Very tense moment and its totally optional. I hope i did justice with those games.
I would recommend trying Metro 2033 Redux version. It has some very nice additions to the overall story and is built using the Last Light engine. You can however skip the last light redux version though, as its simply all DLCs packed into one.
