Literally, the game's content has been stripped and blockaded off, costing gamers additional money to access the "Hard" difficulty setting, also known as Ranger Mode, something that was a standard feature in the original Metro 2033 after you beat the game the first time through. As noted in an article by PC Gamer [via Shack news], Koch Media's global brand manager Huw Beynon ran to the defense of Deep Silver and their decision to have the game mode as pre-order DLC,forcing anyone who wants to play on a harder setting to shell out $5 in addition to the $60 retail purchase

Ranger Mode did not come out at release with Metro 2033 and was only added later after complaints of bullet sponge enemies. It was $5 on consoles and free on PC.

And I got Last Light and Ranger DLC for $37.50 on Green Man Gaming. biggrin.gif Much ado about nothing.

Meh, not surprising. Most people would probably not even play the Ranger Mode any way,

I found ranger difficulty actually made the game near impossible due to the lack of ammunition in early levels. Even on Ranger easy, there was way too little ammunition.

Still not worth that much. You've been ripped off.

I saw angry joe ranting about this. Game developers have fallen to a new low if they're charging extra for difficulty levels lol

That is your opinion and I am okay with that.

My opinion is that I find the game to be great, so it was totally worth $37.50, and would have still been worth it at $60 as far as I am concerned.

They already came out and it had to be done, because it retail stores required it and they weren't willing to make preorder-exclusive content or story. Why is everyone still complaining?

I paid $5 for Metro 2033 and got a $5 credit on Amazon for another game so really it was free...I feel so ashamed because it probably one of the few games in recent years I felt would have been worth a full release price to me, but I didn't buy it till a long while after release. It is a great game.

I also will not buy Last Light till a few months after release...and I will likely pay about $20 for it with this Ranger Mode DLC. Patience is a virtue that pays off in multiple ways...especially with games.
