Metro: Last Light
Metro: Last Light Gameplay Demo Part 1 is Very Dark
Written Thursday, July 14, 2011 By Richard Walker

"In pursuit of the mysterious prisoner who holds the key to peace in the Metro, Artyom & Khan infiltrate the Reich sentry camp..." That's the setup dealt with, now onto the new gameplay footage for Metro: Last Light, which is taken from the pre-alpha E3 2011 demo.

This is the first of three parts, opening in an impenetrably dark and oppressive tunnel leading up to the Reich sentry facility, guarded by armed troops. Thankfully, you're a dab hand with a rifle and before long, you're packing a huge minigun that spits lead-flavoured death in all directions. Handy.

For a first look at Metro: Last Light in action, check out the new trailer which offers a tantalising couple of minutes from the game. Metro: Last Light is out in Q4 2012.

Looks like fun. Can't go wrong with miniguns.

Still have to crack open my copy of the first game...soon though!

I really hope they improved the stealth in the game, because it wasn't very good in the first game.

The first one was okay in my opinion, it wasn't really anything special. The setting was great, stuff like that, but there were quite a few graphical issues, and the stealth was horrendous. It's one of those times where an enemy will find a dead body, and then the dead body magically talks to them and tells them your every move.

Finally, a game that has some atomsphere to it. I enjoyed the first one, but always felt is was missing something. Like the story didn't translate well into a game or something like that, maybe its just me though.

First one wasn't huge, it was a great game with a little bit of mistakes, but hey we generally learn from our mistakes so I expect to see "Metro Last Night" do great things!

The bullet registration and stealth abilities seem much better than the first.

I really enjoyed the first one, although i felt the gunplay needed tweaking slightly. Still, it wasn't enough to put me off it at all, and I shall be getting this for sure.

Hopefully the weapons are a bit more responsive this time around, kind of hard to tell just by watching. Regardless, looking forward to it as I thoroughly enjoyed the first.

I really liked how he put out the fire by shooting the pot, very clever mechanic right there.

I actually rather enjoyed the first one on PC with max settings. It was a beauty:-) They say they improved stealth play a lot and combine that with being able to put out any light or light anything up with your zippo and this might be even bigger winner:-)

I enjoyed the first one a lot. I'm not really sure why it didn't get more attention. It wasn't highly innovative, but it was very atmospheric, and the stealth path was extremely satisfying to pull off, especially because it was challenging. I would recommend the first one to anyone who hasn't played it, and I look forward to the next one.

I wonder if there will be any new mutants? I'm hoping for more moments like the library. That place made me nervous.

the gunplay looks very much like cod up to and including the hip firing minigun sequence, im dissapointed they moved away from the moodiness of the first and now seem like just another shooter

The first one was pretty good even if the stealth was atrocious with the enemy knowing right where you were in pitch black as soon as you shot someone with a silencer. If they fix that and maybe add more gun options (there was one rifle that was pretty much the only gun I used once I got it) this could be an awesome game.

only thing I see wrong is that as the person shooting out the lights(which makes noise) the Germans just continue to patrol like nothing is happening.
