Mod Review on Oct 10th, 2015 - 2 people agree 5 people don't

I can't get around than feeling this is over-rated from one end to the other. This mod (or however you want to call it) has been a real mess to get working in the first place. Then once it's working it's so horribly unstable you see CTDs more often than a dead cat on the road sees black rubber.
- Talk to an NPD: random CTD!
- Change map: random CTD!
- Walk over a dead body: random CTD!
- Sneeze in the wrong time: random CTD!
Of course anybody having ever played a STALKER game knows that you need to spam the quick-save key every 10s or you loose your game to random CTDs but in this mod it's extreme. Many other mods are less crash-happy than that one.

Ignoring the stability problems for the moment the strong point of the mod is the inclusion of tons of maps. But what good are maps if nothing is in it? Jogging all the way through dark scape and the only thing I've met in these 10 minutes had been two lonely bandits not knowing what they should do there. So in general maps are empty... empty... horribly empty! I read somewhere this is supposed to be a modder source but then I think it should have been released also as such. With no story, mostly empty maps and really next to no tasks around to do there is really no reason to play this mod at all. If somebody can use it to make a "real" mod all the better but from a player perspective this is not worth the time.

- horrible stability
+ many maps
- empty maps
+ free to join any factions
- no story and no tasks to do anything but poking your nose

Recommended for players? NO
Recommended for modders? YES

Mod Review on Aug 27th, 2012

The idea of the mod is all nice and dandy but a few things are a big problem. The biggest problem is the difficulty. Enemies do ~25% damage a hit... you do next to no damage per hit and health items are next to non-existent. After a couple of maps it is impossible to continue with next to no HP left. Furthermore the mapping is kinda bland: corridors... corridors... and yet again corridors. CryOfFear shows how a good level design works. With this mod though after some way into it you just have no will to continue as it is simply not fun like CoF had been just annoying. With better balancing and more interesting mapping I would give this a better mark but they it stands right now 6 is the best I can give.

Short one this time as I can't bother with more with this crap.

- Story (TES-Lore) totally bastardized by retcons (totally breaks existing TES universe)
- Controls on PC beyond funny (UI handling catastrphic)
- Various game mechanics ripped out and replace with dumbed down crap
- Level system in general a joke
- Good graphics
- Character building dumbed down a lot
- NPCs in general are bland and generic (animations or faces nearly non-existent)
- Quests quite generic and boring

Overall RP in the name but not really in the game. Better as Oblivion but miles away from Morrowind.

Side note: Whoever calls this "best game ever" either has brain cancer or never played actually good games. Right now this game can't be recommended especially not for the full price. If you find this later in a sales box you can try but if you like good games this is definitely not what you are looking for. Especially if you like TES then this is a fist in the face and should be buried on the depths of the ocean with a big cement block around the legs.
