Lost Alpha is a new episode of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series made by dezowave group for free!
I like this mod, the biggest thing it has for it is that it's big and pretty! And to me having more of ground to cover was exciting.
But the game is also buggy and unfair. And I know it's STALKER what do you expect. But here's something. I'm at a point where I'm almost done with Agroprom, place you can breeze through in normal SoC. I can't!
The game has a huge ammo distribution problem. Enemies can shoot for hours and when you finally kill them and loot them you get very little and not to mention traders and their lack of supply for anything. They don't restock like in SoC!
Then the game is glitchy as well. I had soldiers falling through geometry near entrance points to Agroprom Underground, it was crazy!
Not to mention the nasty spawn of soldiers at the entrance to Garbage from Cordon! That was just unfair! I'm going back to that fat bastard Sidrovich to sell my stuff in hopes of selling all the stuff I have with a 50kg limit only to have two soldiers in the open right there at the entrance as soon as the loading screen finishes (keep in mind that I have ammo only for the sawed off shotgun and that all ammo for my obokan has been wasted in agroprom undergound, mostly on soldiers who just keep coming and coming and there's still more in the section with documents, only area that is now in my playthrough impossible to cover without cheating) mow me down with their Obokans in seconds not giving me time to react effectively destroying any chance of me going to Cordon from Garbage. And I can't go to Bar till I finish the Agroprom because the fine Duty asks for to let you in has been removed! I have all this early game money I made and nothing to spend it on! And you can go to Bar early! I've found a bug to get to the exit from the Garbage side! But then the Duty on the other side will shoot you once you get into the city!
That's my first impression and I'm not pleased at all.
