As you may have heard, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are coming together for a new remaster package for the new generation of consoles and PC in the newly announced Metro Redux. This is better than your standard tweak-and-ship remaster as it has seen a full year development cycle, with the original in-house team handling the work. They know their games inside and out so you can consider this a true director’s cut. 

Each game will be available separately as digital downloads, priced at $24.99 a piece, including all of the DLC released since each title’s original launch. A double pack including all will release for consoles, priced at $49.99

Review: Metro: Last Light  photo
Review: Metro: Last Light
by Jim Sterling

Metro 2033 is a game so good, Destructoid reviewed it a year and a half after its release, finally giving it a scored assessment after the original reviewer made it to chapter three and gave up. The claustrophobic Ukrainian shooter, fueled by an engrossing story and highly effective horror elements, was truly one of the great story-led shooters of its generation.

Despite its dedicated fans, 2033 was nonetheless subject to a number of recurring criticisms, and these criticisms are all addressed in Metro: Last Light. The sequel is a humble game in many ways, going out of its way to improve upon everything laid forth in the original.

The result is a rewarding and visually beautiful shooter, but one that goes so far in the refinement process that it risks missing the entire point of Metro 2033. Indeed, while Last Light is quality in many ways, it may disappoint those looking for more of what 4A Games offered last time.
