Call of Pripyat takes you once again into the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor that exploded in 1986. This so-called "Zone" is a highly contaminated area cordoned off by the military and now is combed through by the so-called stalkers, modern fortune hunters, in search of unique artifacts. In the role of Agent Alexander Degtyarev, who is dressed up as stalker, you have to investigate the mysterious disappearance of five military helicopters and thereby stand one’s ground against the various stalker groups.
Awesome final installment with the potential for modding greatness.
The downsides, It is too short and when you do jobs in certain places you end up with an empty area afterwards. But Modding is the answer and mods like MSO solve that particular problem.
I've waited a long time for this, mostly because I haven't played CoP as extensively as SHoC. Love it. Huge improvement over SHoC and the modding support is top notch. Gonna be my 2nd longest played game I think! 1st being SHoC ofcourse! can't beat 3k hours :D
This game is the most prolific game I've ever played. The atmosphere is incredible. But it's not just "incredible", I mean sure, other games have incredible atmosphere as well, but the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has continuously brought this world together successfully again and again. What they did was create a universe. The game play is great, it's a perfect mix of different genres, most notably FPS and RPG. But it's done in such a way that no other game really accomplishes. There's just too much to say about this game, so I would just say try it out yourself. Play it, then play it again, then try it with a mod, and then try out another new mod, cause there's plenty of fun to be had with this game and plenty of mods that just keep coming. The re-playability is outrageously high. I've been hooked since 2008 when this first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. came out, and Call of Pripyat is such a great way to end the series. You won't be disappointing.
