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.
1. Photorealistic graphics.
2. Modding potential.
3. Large game world.
4. Some RPG elements which fits good.
5. Pretty realistic weapons and damage balance.
6. Sometimes A-Life works and interesting things may happen.
8. Awesome story.
Is there any bad stuff?
If it is, it can be removed by mods :D
One of the best games I have played, this is the holy grail for all STALKER fans it is stable enough to play just as vanilla by now, but this game is best experienced with the oblivion lost mod installed or in my opinion the more refined Super Mod Pack with oblivion lost built in :)
My objective review...ahh, forget about it. This game is plain awesome, I have been playing it since 2010. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. really profits from its ability to be customized, almost every bug is ironed out by mods and those who remain are often produced by the mods itself :D
