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.

Very good game. Little buggy, little unoptimized, but the feeling is fantastic.

Great Game. Blends Action, Realism, Exploration, and Horror all in 1 game very well, more well than any other game you will find, this is the best of the series so far, with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 scheduled for release sometime in 2012.

One of the most atmospheric games of 2007.

What a great work of art!
Such an immersive,atmospheric,solid and replayable game that never ceases to amaze me even after all this time. You won't get bored by this game,there is always something to do,whether it's listening to stalkers when they play their guitar,drink vodka,wrestle with pseudogiants,slalom through anomalies and so much more.

Play this game!

This game is just perfect. You start off as a guy named marked one because you dont know who you are adn you must kill Strelok and later on on in the story when you have trecked the highest mountain and the lowest dungeon you find are Strelok.

There are few, so damned few which hit nearly every sweet spot. Although some are calling CoP better (hint: it isn't), Call of Pripyat has a far more simplistic storyline, & requires less though than ShoC. The perks of what the newer games added, certainly didn't make up for what they took away. Both CoP & Clear Sky feel like cut & paste, cookie cutter games when measured against ShoC. The atmosphere is distinctly lacking when compared & contrasted to what is, in my humble opinion, the best S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Shadow of Chernobyl.

Sure, it was heavily bugged upon release, but even vanilla is pretty solid now-a-days. Those days are long passed however, and on a personal note, I think you can rightfully level blame at THQ, instead of GSC for the release condition. I've owned every single release since either day one (2007), or 1 week after release in the case of CoP, and I still play them each at least a couple of play-through's a year. Mostly ShoC, if I'm to be quite honest, it get's most of my attention to this very day (although I haven't played the plain Jane version of any in quite some time, I spend most of my time running the little heard of *in the English speaking mod world* Russian mods for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. these days).

Technically, I'd rate it a 9.6 out of 10. If I'm to be totally honest, I can only think of 15, or perhaps fewer, games I'd rate as well, or better. Most that come to mind of those, are from Bethesda.

Very perfect game as other players say positive points of it.
The only problem I saw in the game exept graphics and some gameplay bugs that can be omited is the scale of locations wich is small!

There's something about the atmosphere in this game series which is unique, and although each of the episodes have something or the other that makes them stand out, this one is still the complete package that captures that feeling best.

The game can be very gritty and somber, but also charming and funny, and even though it is more science fiction than fantasy, there's a pervading sense of the possibility of something magic happening just around the corner.

I keep going back to it.
