THQ confirmed it already that there won't be any Multi-Player or Co-Op

FPS survival horror. The first one is quite good. It is pretty cheap of steam. A little while ago THQ were giving away free codes for Steam. I think that is over though.

It's good to see a bit of colour.

Playing 1st one at present with some a friend and its rather decent I have to say. A little hard at points, but good overall. Really like how atmospheric it is, tho do agree that sneaking some colour in helps.

Not seen so much brown/grey since Quake.

I can't wait for this!
Story wise I thought it was one of the games of the year when it came out, and has inspired me to purchase the book (though I still remains unread as I have so many others to go through!)

I liked STALKER series, but I didn't like the on-rails feel of Metro 2033. I really missed the freedom of STALKER. Didn't get far in 2033. :-\

Honestly felt like a poor-man's STALKER

What are you talking about? Metro and Stalker have only one thing in common, Horror. That's it, they shouldn't even be alike.

Not even Horror, just postnuclear environment.

I like STALKER and I like Metro books and first game part, and probably, I will like Metro Last Light....

....nahhh, I will love Last Light :D

I'm a big fan of STALKER too (except Clear Sky), but I think you have to look at them as separate types of games. STALKER was designed to be an RPG/FPS hybrid. Lots of looting, upgrading weapons, free-roaming, etc. Metro on the other hand sort of has to be linear since it's based on the book of the same name (although I can't attest to how accurate it is, having never read it).

I thoroughly enjoyed Metro. Some of the stuff they did in it really worked as well (no health, limited time on the surface, etc). But I do see where you're coming from, after STALKER, everything seems like linear corridors!

I really wanted to like Metro 2033 because of the athmosphere and background story, but things like the enemies being heavily scripted took a lot of the fun out of the game. Eg. almost at the beginning you are riding a cart fleeing from some of those creatures, and all of them were moving exactly the same all the time, getting close to the cart through exactly the same paths with identical patterns. That felt really cheap.

It also felt very linear, which it had to be being based on a book, but there's something wrong with a linear game when you keep wishing you could just go and explore other areas (even if you had to ultimately progress through one single path). Something about feeling handheld through the game rather than the illusion of freedom where the events actually make you want to take the predefined road.

I hope this second one is better, the story has potential for a great game.

Actually, it's a lot more than that. They're both set in an apocalyptic Russian wasteland; they both feature mutants; 4A Games was founded by employees that worked on STALKER.

I look both franchises but I thought Metro 2033 was a much more polished and technically competent game. STALKER had a lot of potential and character and the open nature of the gameplay was refreshing but it was very rough around the edges and the gameplay a lot less polished.
