Metro: Last Light Gameplay Demo Keeps Tension High And Scares Big
Earlier today, THQ released the full 13-minute E3 Metro: Last Light gameplay demo and like what you’d expect from the series, the game keeps tension high and scares big. In the demo, Artyom scours post-apocalyptic Moscow in an attempt to cross the hostile surface of post-apocalyptic Moscow in a bid to reach the relative safety of the legendary station city, The Theatre.

As one would expect, environments look dark and grimy and it sure fits the game’s theme. One of the things I loved about the demo was the developer’s attention to even the minute details in the game world. For example, flies, spiders, and other bugs can be found by carcasses littrered throughout Moscow; they’ll even stick themselves unto the players’ gas mask from time to time. Also, Artyom is forced to fight a mutant in close quarters at one point in the demo, he gets knocked down and blasts his shotgun up at the mutant’s head. Of course Artyom gets his mask caked in blood and chunks, as well, blood spatter from the shotgun blast could be seen on the ceiling.
Environmental effects look amazing too. Torrential radioactive rain blasts down on Artyom, and lighting/thunder hit parts of the environment causing damage and destruction. Weapons look and feel hefty and pack quite a punch, especially the bolt action rifle that Artyom uses against one of the flying mutants later on in the demo.
From the gameplay show, it’s looking like Metro: Last Light takes everything that was great about Metro 2033 and improves on them. As well, the storytelling and amount of tension and scares could even surpass the original game.
