About This Game

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky is set in 2011, one year prior to the events of the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game.

A group of stalkers, for the first time, reaches the very heart of the Zone-the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant-and triggers a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. An immense blast of anomalous energy transforms the Zone: the once reliable and relatively safe roads are no longer so, the landscape is wiped clean by outbursts of anomalies, and previously unknown areas appear on the Zone map. Stalkers and expeditions perish or end up isolated within the lost territories.

With the anomalous activity at its maximum, the unstable Zone continues to tremor with outbursts. The transformation of the Zone map destabilizes the fragile balance of forces in the Zone. Hostilities for the new territories, artifact fields and spheres of influence flare up among groups. There are no more old enemies or friends - now, everyone watches out only for themselves. The Factions War has begun.

The protagonist is a mercenary who appeared at the edge of the opposition between stalker factions, Strelok and even the Zone itself. The main character experiences the key role in the events that led to the creation of the Zone right up to the point from which the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game begins.

What new challenges await stalkers within the depths of the new zone? Why do anomalous outbursts continue to rattle the Zone, and what can be done to stop them? Which faction will take the upper hand in the Factions War? These and many other questions will be answered in the official prequel - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.

Killed thirty+ highly trained Spetsnaz operatives with a Mosin Nagant and a bandit jacket so I could get into a box near the outpost with two bottles of vodka and some bandages.

Highly disappointed with the final game prequel after playing the other two S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. This one is glitchy and they removed tons of stuff. I can't believe there's no aim-down-sight for a pistol any more. No I'm not modding to fix what they shouldn't have changed from the last one.

Pretty much got sick of the factions whining at me to help take back points and they'd lose them over and over. So I ended up skipping almost all the side missions(which were mostly fetch missions with no value) and only played the very predictable(because it's a prequel) main quest.

Way to ruin a good series.

Really great graphics. Totally spoiled by the gameplay though.
Guns dont shoot straight, enemies are overpowered, you die a lot. And watch a lot of loading screens when you die.
Fail.

A highly disappointing prequel to the Slavic legacy release that is S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.

I tried to play this game when it was released, and i couldn't finish half way through because saving was broken somewhere on the Cordon level.

Now however, when i played the patched version, i played it with Complete Mod, and i still couldn't finish it because i couldn't load any save in Limansk level (the level prior to the game finale) but the autosave at the beginning of the level.

Faction Wars was an interesting idea, but it felt lacking. This game feels like a rushed, unfinished game. I would recommend it, but if i knew that i couldn't finish the game because of the save/load problem, i wouldn't even try it, even though i am one of the greatest Stalkers out there.

The brutal entry in the series where you have to bind Quicksave and Quickload to the left and right mouse buttons before you can consider getting any amount of progress done.

If an enemy so much as looks at you, the bleed status will occur.

You get maximum irradiation in nanoseconds of hitting any ultra gelatinous water, which is all of it.

And the added challenge of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.ClearSky.exe has stopped responding to make you think twice about quickloading too often after rushing foolishly into battle.

But I'll tell you the worst part- the worst part- the worst par-

Review.exe has stopped responding.

This game is trully something else, like i said Shadow of Chernobyl is. The story involved in this game is really cool, the graphfics of this game arent amazingly good or something like that, but they are still pretty decent for its time.
Must have for FPS with story involved weapon costumization, armor upgrades, artifacts for field use or to get rich your choice stalker.
Overall its an amazing post apocaliptic game sort of like fallout.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: 16 April
The good
Creepy
Great visuals - you do feel like you're in a ruined world
Good weapon upgrade features
Some hair-raising moments
Compelling game, compelling series, among the best FPSes out there

The bad
The least of the three - mainly as it just feels like a mess
Can be buggy
Isn't as gripping or as creepy as the two other games
