Metro: Last Light Trailer Shoots Out the Lights
Metro 2033 was a sleeper hit in the spring of 2010, dripping with ominous, post-apocalyptic atmosphere and inventive mechanics that blended stealth, shooting, and survival horror. Now that the secret is out, THQ is eager to cash in, ramping up the marketing (see this initial gameplay trailer) and adding an ill-advised multiplayer mode.
Despite the worries of die-hard series fans, Last Light is still prepared to deliver engrossing thrills along the lines of the original game. The trailer below shows our hero sneaking into a camp tenanted by Russian Neo-Nazis called The Reich, extinguishing light sources to hide his approach (using his handy air-powered sniper rifle) before creeping up on some goose-stepping Ivans, knifing them, machine-gunning them, and finally laying waste to a group of them using a chain gun. All in a days work when you’re in the Metro.
