Metro: Last Light is relentlessly linear, right up until it isn’t. It gives you a trusty ally to follow, right up until he betrays you. As the game pulls the rug out from under you, leaving you completely alone, it becomes clear: all of this was by design.

What will the world look like after the bombs fall? Can God exist in a place without hope? When man's desire to survive overrides his morality, is the empire he constructs worth saving?

The first thing I thought, while checking out Metro: Last Light during a demo presentation in a Manhattan hotel a few weeks ago, was "Another grey shooter? Seriously?"
