Lost Alpha is a new episode of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series made by dezowave group for free!
Now on my second take on it with the newest patch I gotta say this is an amazing experience. Played for over 4 hours without crash and still continue.
Its pretty and its a damn good stalker game.
I'm having another blast being a stalker and that after playing the others to death and back. The new stuff and enhancements so far are all great.
Its also quite accessible when you played one of the games before.
Absolutely perfect, really not much else to say.
The graphical overhaul is simply amazing, it's hard to believe that this was built on the same engine as ShoC.
Gameplay-wise, it's outstanding. All the new added features like chatting with other stalkers via. PDA and the expanded and enhanced levels really boost the immersion.
Such a great release from independent, unpaid developers…especially considering they weren't even ready to release it and only had to because some horribly selfish individuals leaked it. Everything that's great about STALKER is already present in L.A. and it can only get better.
This mod brings back the nostalgic feelings i had when I first read about STALKER SoC in a gaming magazine 2004. The lost Alpha-team took the bread crumbs that was lost during the road of development and made it into delicious bread! A must play for every STALKER-fan!
Reviving this game in it's finest form it's such a wonderful feeling. Dez0wave did an amazing job taking what Stalker originally was and giving it to us: the fans.
Playing Lost Alpha is like coming back to that time when I saw the first images about Shadow of Chernobyl, all the original ideas are here now to let us enjoy what we wanted the gane to be.
Your journey through Lost Alpha will be hard, full of challenges and great surprises, so be prepared to face the real zone, stalker.
