The lights are on
The release of Metro 2033 in 2010 earned the game a devoted cult following. With the upcoming release of Metro: Last Light, publisher THQ is hoping to expand the fan base without betraying the hardcore survival aspects that made the first entry a success. Senior associate editor Jeff Cork wrote the November cover story for Metro: Last Light and associate editor Tim Turi recently started playing Metro 2033, watch the video below to hear how the series is evolving and see exclusive gameplay footage.

Aw, you're not gonna call this Game Informal, too?
... And I am one of those cult-followers, my most anticipated game at the moment. The first one was just an amazing experience.
A month or so back a nice fella at Toys 'R' Us clued me in to the fact that they still had two new Metro 2033 in stock for $14.99. So I grabbed one right away.
I haven't played it yet, (Severe backlog issues) but I can't wait to play both it and Metro: Last Light.
I absolutely loved the original. Last Light will be amazing. Thankfully, that's what cover art I received for the last issue!
I had a really nice time playing 2033. Remember that part where you have to carry the kid and he gets all excited when he sees the sky? That was awesome.
Anyway, I hope they pay attention to details like that for Last Light. Can't wait to check it out!
More games should have a "HUD" like Metro.
Can't hear!! Nooooooo! I'll watch again in a bit
I loved the little music that was in the game. Improve gunplay and stealth and Last Light will be so much better than the first game.
I never played the first one although I was always interested. Looking at this I have a reason I think to go back.. much like how Dead Space 2 really prompted me to replay the first one...
Loved Metro 2033, as long as it does not change much, Last Light should be epic!
