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.

The first FPS I ever played. Fond memories. Still incredible, aided of course by the active and passionate modding community.

Simply the most atmospheric game i've ever played.


Everything best with this game in 3 words:

Great game indeed, original story and a huge set of secondary missions. Too bad for little bugs...


My favorite game :)

Greatest game ever made! Nice atmosphere, ambient music, horror :)

Terrifying, brutal, exciting, beautiful, unforgiving, grim, atmospheric, desolate. In my opinion the best game ever made, and what with the various mods created for it, never samey or boring.

best game ever

Mod is really promising and looks wonderful!

Only issue is if you are using the current version of SoC, it will ask you to DOWNGRADE to 1.0004 in order to play properly.
