Metro: Last Light Performance

A sequel to Metro 2033, the dark and spooky first person shooter (FPS) Metro Last Light continues the journey of Artyom. Armed to the teeth, you fight your way through monsters and hostile commandos as you search for the Dark One. Metro Last Light has some unusual gameplay features, including a health system in which you heal slowly, rather than using the typical med kit. And, because good bullets are hard to make, Metro denizens use bullets as currency. We use the Very High quality settings when running this game’s benchmark.

Metro Last Light
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


Metro Last Light is a demanding game, especially with the settings cranked up. The Alpha struggled with this benchmark. This is another situation where gaming at 1080P would only be enjoyable with the image quality settings reduced.
