Can you remember this?
Video game trailers can be crass, they can be dumb, and they can be misleading. They can also be pretty damned cool. This trailer for Metro: Last Light is pretty damned cool.
The surface of the Earth may be a blasted wasteland, its music shops and symphony halls reduced to smouldering ruins. But as long as humans survive, so too will music. It’s in that spirit that I enjoy the music of Metro 2033 and its equally post-apocalyptic sequel, Metro: Last Light. The games have a distinct musical sensibility, as the grim men and women surviving in the irradiated Moscow Metro carry on the musical traditions of… well, mostly of folk guitar and heavy metal. Cool by me.
Metro: Last Light is a survivor. Not only did it suffer multiple delays, but it also managed to get through its publisher’s unfortunate closure unscathed. The result is an excellent, albeit slightly troubled, first-person horror shooter.
Koch Media owns publisher Deep Silver (Dead Island). It now owns both the Saints Row and Metro franchises, along with the studios that made them.
The first thing I thought while checking out Metro: Last Light during a demo presentation in a Manhattan hotel a few weeks ago, was “Another grey shooter? Seriously?” The second thing I thought was “Gee, this actually looks kind of neat.” The third thing I thought was “OK, now I want to play the first one.”
Take a look at the E3 gameplay demonstration that I checked out last month. Moscow is changing, and so is Artyom.
