We almost lost Metro: Last Light when publisher THQ filed for bankruptcy last December, but then Koch Media snatched it for $5.9 million, so here it comes: another hyper-detailed, ultra-atmospheric, post-apocalyptic shooter based on a book/film. Do we need another one of those? Possibly. This Metro 2033 sequel boasts a more lifelike world, resource-driven gameplay (scavenging for air filters — you’re in post-nuclear Russia and the air quality sucks) and improved tactical A.I.
