In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange 'artifacts' imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killer, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s.

More and more music is being implemented into the L.U.R.K. mod. The music is triggered by certain events or entering certain areas. The first track after leaving the bunker should underline the loneliness and uncertain future of the stalker and his upcoming adventures.

A real rough diamond, like any game thats going for something untried before it has some flaws, on the whole though its one of the best games I've played in a fair stretch.

really enjoying this game....not what people said it would be but the atmosphere is great and generally really getting familiar and attached to the maps. Gives the same feel as HL1 in parts, imo anyway.

good game..8/10 from me because of the many hours of game-play to be had, more interesting quantity than timeless quality. With a decent editor this engine looks like it has a lot of opportunities for post-apoc mod ideas onwards.

I fainally beat it, but apparently you need to play on the hardest skill level to get the "true" ending. Theres 7 different possible endings, from what I was told. Time to replay it I guess. Awesome game, if a bit glitchy.

Someone NEEDS to make a coop mod for this game. This really isn't a matter of "it would be cool if there was one", this is a matter of it being essential that someone makes a coop mod.

I too have been waiting for this game for some time as it looks like it will be a killer game but is it really gonna be worth the wait. I reckon that it is already about 95% done and they keep postponing the release date to increase the hype and we all know that most things dont live up to the hype .......BUT i do hope this one does!!! over and out..
