Metro: Last Light - a post-apocalyptic world comes back to l

On the streets of a greener, deadlier Moscow

From Fallout's jazzy, shell-shocked America to the bleached dust of I Am Alive, the Xbox 360 has played host to a multitude of post-apocalyptic worlds, but this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it's given us a world that's in the process of getting better. Metro: Last Light occurs precisely one in-game year after Metro 2033, the grim yet startlingly rich exercise in tunnel-vision from 2010, and in that time, developer 4A's bedraggled depiction of Moscow has altered dramatically.... read more

SPOILERS AHEAD

So which Metro 2033 ending does Last Light pick up from? The cheerful (but difficult to get) one in which you make peace with the alien looking dudes or the bleaker, depressing, very Russian and book accurate one where you start another thermonuclear war?

SPOILERS END

I've edited a spoiler warning into that, Cunning - think of the children!

I'm not sure which ending Last Light picks up from. I'll give THQ a buzz.

Cheers Ed, I'm feeling a bit fuzzy headed this morning and completely forgot about the spoiler warning bit.

That'll be the cold for you. I've only played it once and decided for the latter ending. Possibly because I'm evil in most games I play.

The other ending is actually surprisingly hard to get as it's a collection of small decisions like giving money to specific beggars throughout the game that aren't sign posted and you actually have to hunt out most of the time. You need to have clocked up about 12 out about 20 of these little things to get it and it's really easy to miss most of them.

And I've been told the darker ending is the one in the book anyway. Love the Russians, never have sunshine and light when you can have soul destroying nihlism.

Did you play stalker? No idea how many endings but the 'incorrect' ones I got are so upbeat in the normal russian way.

That's the normal ending. The other isn't even possible unless you got your 12/20 events along the way.

was waiting for oxm to get there hands on this, the last game was brilliant it was rough and the combat was odd but the sense of atmosphere and story was something no FPS has given me since playing half life on the pc. I am wanting to play this before bioshock infinite as i think this will be the better FPS

Alas, I must break my promise. I've had other stuff to do this afternoon, and now I have to go see Bioshock Infinite. It's a tough life...
