Sci-Fi Shooter 'Metro: Last Light' Is Consistently Inconsistent [REVIEW]
Metro Last Light is a second game in the Metro series. . Atop A Field Of Corpses : The cutscene at the end of the Reich mission shows Hans and .. the D6 bunker, it seems the attack finally tapers off, giving everyone pause while Miller starts .. While Last Light is much more forgiving than the first game in relation to stealth. Did anyone else just get game paused after the credits? Next to all other things I love in this game, one of the most notable things is that "cover fire" (even if it's just your own) works a treat. I went with D3DOverider in the end, it seems to do the job. . The Half-Life connection rings true to me, too. I died, restarted from the last checkpoint, but end up with GAME PAUSED on the screen at the start of the checkpoint. ESC works, but reloading.Metro 2033: Good Ending [Full HD]
While it overlooked a lot of the traditional elements of stealth, deprivation and exploration associated with the shooter — and replaced them with a minecart section — it did its job. The trailer stood out, but perhaps a little too much. Metro Last Light Headshots and handclaps "We'd received comments about shooting and stealth, so we showed you all 12 minutes of lots of the stuff — and, of course, after that, the people who really liked Metro said they were worried that we'd turned the game into a Big Shooty Thing," Beynon says.
In the heady wash of lights, sound and colour it's easy for slower-paced games like Metro to get overlooked in favour of louder titles if it stays true to its roots — and easy for it to come across badly, if it doesn't.
I think we do people a disservice sometimes, but there we are. Artyom the hero from the first game returns, and he and a friend brave the radioactive surface world on their way to a friendly station. A stopwatch shows your remaining oxygen, and although it's possible to pick up replacement canisters from unlucky corpses along the way, survival in the toxic atmosphere isn't guaranteed.
There are more pressing issues than the environment to worry about, though.
Firstly, madness — or psychic messages from supernatural creatures, it's unclear. The effects remain the same, though. On exploring an office block, Artyom hears inexplicable voices ringing from long-dead telephone receivers. In the wreckage of a crashed passenger jet, he's treated to a series of flashback hallucinations as he progresses through the cabin, culminating in a genuinely moving sequence where missiles streak off into the sky, a mushroom cloud blots out the sun, and the plane makes its final catastrophic landing slap-bang over the entrance of the underground station you're trying to get to.
Leathery-winged demons flap through the sky. To be convinced of that, you should consider a trip to the Netherlands, to see by yourself how things really are in such a world. The author makes his character enter what is probably the only strip club underneath, and is shocked to see naked women walking around. Man, it have to be sexism. No more, no less. The way it happen is violent? The Metro universe is violent, people struggle to survive in a near-lawless world, where might is right.
Colleagues, friends, unknowns yell at, insult, slap each other, for various reasons, without turning them into foes.
In Venice, just a couple cars away from that poor stripper, a man is peacefully being molested and victim of an extorsion by two bandits, almost in the open, with no-one caring. Is it less violent? Or is it simply a depiction of a violent world, where laws and civil rights are no more? A mere handful of them are using their pair of tits as a mean to make a living. Such generalization at this point is dishonest. Hunter is just there to be a mentor to Artyom, and so is Khan.

Mentors, lovers, treacherous former friends, companions, nemesis, these kind of character tricks are classic rules in literature.
The same would apply with a female player character and her lover. Unfortunately, this is much, much rarer, because this genre of game is mainly played by males, and thus developers usually favour these choices. Yes, Anna could totally have been more developed as a character.

The carefully constructed details of the world found within Metro: Those who are sensitive to those details will find themselves skipping through cut scenes and bailing on immersion. The final inconsistency with Metro: Last Light is one that is the most glaring: Developer 4A Games worked hard to successfully render the beautiful horror that is the nuclear shell of Moscow, and there are plenty of sights to behold in the game.
But nothing takes you out of the experience faster than glitches, of which this writer saw many. In the first sequence and a couple of subsequent battlesenemies would disappear from view and then seemingly teleport to a new location.
Texture pop-in happened often, and the object clipping within the game caused one passed-out security guard to fall directly through a chair and two AI to be spliced together within a scheduled cutscene.
Even worse, the game locked up completely at random times, leading to reluctant mission restarts. The agony of Metro:
