Metro 2033 is a moderately long game with a story that spans many levels, and Metro Last Light even more so. Levels vary in length and difficulty, almost always having multiple kinds of enemies and traps that the player must avoid to survive, but most have the same objective of getting from one point or event to another. Those that do not, such as D6, are considered the exception.
