Hey guys. I played this game a while ago (1 year or so) and was EXTREMELY irritated and unimpressed with it. I think part of the problem was that I was trying to play a first person shooter - and frankly, this game isn't really an FPS. Yes, I know it has all the elements, but if you play this like an FPS you are going to play it WRONG. I played it wrong the first time and that led to my dissapointment in the game. I recently got the sequel because of all the good scores it got, and liked it. But I realized that alot of the things that were going on were unfamiliar to me because I never played the first one all the way through - I gave up on it. So before I went any further with Metro Last Light I decided to give this game another go and play it like it was meant to be played. And I am happy I did. First off, I put it on easy mode - I didn't want to get frustrated, because the game can be a little unforgiving at times, especially for a person who is used to the quick-save feature. And I replayed it. I'm still not done, but I am so glad I gave this game a second chance. And when I beat it, and I am DEFINATELY going to beat it this time, I've got Metro Last Light to play afterwards. So for all of you people who got frustrated or annoyed at it, I think the problem is that you are thinking like an FPS player and not a Metro player, which is a completely different style of game and requires a completely different approach to the game. As it is, now I HIGHLY recommend this game to all my friends, and this definately goes down in my top 10 games of the year list.
Great job on a great game - give it a chance, you won't regret it.
