METRO: LAST LIGHT
PS3 (also on Xbox 360, PC)
Last Light I dreamt that somebody loved me. No hope, no harm,
just another false alarm...
Last Light I felt real
arms around me. No hope, no harm, just another false alar- oh fuck,
no it isnít! Theyíre icky spidercrabbyscorpionbuggly tentacles!
Whereís that motherfucking gun?!
Ahem. Sorry. But we really
hate spidercrabbyscorpionbugglies. Theyíre just one thing to deal
with in this sequel to Metro 2033,
based on the Dmitry Glukhovsky novel. But you likely knew that.
As returning post-apocalypse Muscovite protagonist Artyom youíll
also face innumerable tunnels, (being Metro-set and all), rodents of
unusual size, flashbacks, mutants, shadowy figures, hallucinations,
cobwebs, airborne demonic thingies, swamps, politics, a teddy bear,
light globes, sleaze, Communists, a solitary remaining ĎDark Oneí
and underground Nazis. We hate underground Nazis.
But you may
have known all that. You likely also know that itís set in 2034,
which isnít really that far away. We really should make the most of
every day then. Yeah, OK, you knew that too.
Light is a comfortably linear, beefy weapon-infused, stealthy
first-person shooter, although itís anything but mindless. Think
Dead Space when it could creep the fuck out of you, yet with a
deeper, more intense, more human vein running through it dealing
with past choices, fear, hope and several other emotional emotions.
Did you know that? You did?! Smartarse.
competent graphically, but some sound design is truly remarkable. If
having the shit scared out of you is, indeed, a feat of
remarkability. Playing alone in an otherwise silent flat creeped us
out significantly. But weíll never admit to squealing. We wonít. Ha,
you didnít know that! Oh...
Look, if youíre so
intelligentsiacal and know everything then nick off and challenge
Wikipedia to a duel. Everybody else, play Metro: Last Light.
Itís insanely хорошее.
The story is old, I know, but it goes
