Thumbs up Metro Last Light

Just found this while browsing the web tonight. Loved the 1st Metro! Can't wait for this one. I wonder how much this is going to stress PC systems??? Metro: Last Light -- Genesis Gameplay Trailer [HD] - YouTube

The first was was pretty enjoyable. But man it sure stressed my 3x 470's hehe. I had heard that Last Light will be a little bit better optimized for current hardware and won't kick the crap out of even the most powerful of cards.

Honestly, when all of the detailed are maxed out, I find Metro 2033 to still be one of the best looking PC games around.

Definite eye candy yes. But I still think that game engine needs to be optimized. The eye candy and framerates did not jibe. Crysis 2 with all the high res tweaks on ultra looks way better and runs better than Metro 2033.

It could be good but there is a good chance that it could be Crysis 2 all over again and all the work has gone into getting the metro 4A engine to run on the xbox/ps3. Not saying the game wont be good just that it might look the same as the last one.

Agreed, this game was very cool, both looking and story line. I believe I played the title with either Sli 580's (vanilla) or Tri SLi, cant remember now, I know I had everything cranked except DOF and was running right around the magic 60 FPS throughout (2560 x 1440). It most certainly ran better than my current FC3, with awesome graphics.

I tried to play Metro 2033 but the UI while playing just didn't do it for me and didn't even make it past the start gate.
