Control Command Escape Reviews Metro: Last Light
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Metro: Last Light from Deep Silver. The first person shooter with survival horror elements takes place in a post apocalyptic future in which players must struggle to survive against mutants and the perils of a looming civil war.
Last Light positively smothers you in exposition. From the start of the game (which has the most pointlessly prolonged menu screen animation ever) you’re fed cutscenes stuffed with overloaded narration, then once in the game you’re talked at, apparently without any of the characters needing to pause for breath. The storyline is clearly Very Important to the designers, and having not played through Metro 2033, I was initially glad that it seemed to be filling me in on some of the backstory, but within minutes my brain was steadfastly rejecting any more information like it was a back-alley skin graft.Read the full review at the link below.

This continues in one form or another throughout the game, but when it’s at its worst is wherever there’s another character accompanying you, as they’re more than happy to just talk and talk and talk, even though Artyom himself never makes any attempt at communication (rather laughably in some cases). There’s even a point where you get an achievement just for sitting through a twenty minute cutscene.
