There are a couple benefits to getting Redux. For one, it’s cheap, especially if you already own the original Last Light. If you already own both original versions you can get both Reduxes for only $25 dollars, or each individual for $12.50. Last Light might not be particularly worth 12.50 but 2033 Redux is worth all that and more.

Two, it comes with all the DLC. So if you haven’t purchased the DLC yet you might as well get the Redux version. Also, you can start the game with an auto-shotgun, and yes that does sound broken but it’s also a ton of fun.

Metro: Last Light is an awesome game and the game hasn’t stopped being awesome. If you haven’t played it before, then this is easily the most definitive version. However, if you HAVE played Last Light before, getting Last Light Redux is a bit more of a complicated question. As far as remakes go, it doesn’t offer a whole lot of new content or options. Not to mention it’s being packaged alongside 2033 Redux which, as I said before, is one of the best remakes of the year. But, at the same time that’s why it’s hard to not recommend. The price of picking up Last Light Redux alongside 2033 Redux is marginal at best, and you absolutely should pick up 2033 Redux. This is the definitive version of the game, even though it’s still strikingly similar to its original release.

So I think, when all is said and done, I still recommend this game to anyone, whether you played Last Light originally or not. It certainly rides on the coattails of 2033 Redux’s release, but it’s still incredibly fun. If anything, it’s a testament to how much fun Last Light was to begin with.
