If you haven’t played 2007’s most immersive and atmospheric shooter, or you’re back for replay, this mod is for you. This is the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. like you’ve never seen before, with updated graphics and added functionality that don’t change the original story or gameplay. The game hasn’t been changed beyond recognition, but rather enhanced while preserving the core elements that made it the unique experience it is.
This is the best mod that changes graphics in depth without being badly optimized. Complete runs with all settings set to max without any problems even on old and cheap GT220(30 fps)All bugs are cleared and I have not experienced any CDT-s, even when doing all possible side quests. Only task that not works is to bring healing suit to scientists in bunker. I suggest to play game on Master or Veteran difficulty since the Complete makes game much easier... Also, I must say that the other two Complete mods(especially that one for CoP) are very bad and I really dont like Wish granter feature in them.
Thats my opinion about Complete 2009:) 10/10 Good work!
Would give 10/10 if I was allowed to, but as a new user, I can give a max amount of 8 points ;P
I remember having a 7 day long holiday and I wanted to give this mod a try. What started with a simple "yeh, let´s try that mod" turned into a whole week spent in the world of STALKER. I literally got sucked into this game.
the weather system!
the lively surroundings
the realism and the overall moody world
I still have all the videos I recorded back then from my trip, I should really put them into one big video and upload it one day.
Oooh the adventures I had...this mod is definetly a MUST TRY for everyone who has played STALKER or is in general into post-apocalyptic games.
This is one of the most stable mods for STALKER, I would recommend this mod to anyone who's never heard of the series before and just bought ShoC from some summer sale... However, players who genuinely enjoy how Stalker stands out from other FPS will find this mod to be a step back in terms of gameplay:
They were all good, not once did I hear a new sound or song into the mod that annoyed me or made me go through the game files to remove it from the game, the thing that made me feel in love with this mod's soundtrack was the bar music, I don't think any other mod has ever made such a small location that much better with nothing but music, whenever I install a ShoC mod, I make sure that complete's soundtrack is included for my personal satisfaction when visiting the bar.
They are way better than vanilla, yet they still remain true to Stalker's atmosphere, there are better textures out there for ShoC but the ones in this mod are just fine and unless you're one of those graphic freaks who want everything to have bloom and special effects you shouldn't have any complaints about it.
Excellent, I can't remember any crash or bug in Complete.
This is where I was really disappointed with the mod, enemies' sight was reduced to a point that you can shoot freely at an enemy group with your flashlight on and still not be noticed, the AI in complete is good for regular shooters but bad for stalker, it sometimes felt like I was playing a generic "shot deh bad guise" FPS due to dumb moments with the AI. Sadly this mod removes the most of the breathtaking gunfight experiences such as being potshot at during the night or being pinned down in mediocre cover, and when these moments do happen, they are not as intense as they should be.
All in all Complete is an extremely good choice for someone who just entered The Zone, however this will definitely bore the most hardcore stalker fans who are always looking for a new challenge.
