Metro: Last Light Will be Better than Flawed Predecessor

on June 1, 2011 1:00 PM

If you didn’t play last years Metro 2033, let me be brief; the concept is better than the execution. The game itself wasn’t very bad, but was far from perfect. In fact, Danny Bilson (EVP Core Games, THQ) has referred to the first game as a “flawed masterpiece” and vows that the second will improve on the let-downs. He promises more polish, better gameplay, and more satisfying combat without sacrificing what did work about the original; most¬†importantly¬†in my mind the wonderful atmosphere.

Check out a gallery for Metro: Last Light and a teaser trailer featuring Portishead’s “Machine Gun” after the break. The game will be playable at E3, so keep an eye out for more information shortly.
