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.

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.

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-

Not the strongest entry to the STALKER series but still holds a place in my heart just as the other 2 games did.

Just make a new STALKER game GSC and nobody has to get hurt.

I am big fan of S.T.A.L.K.E.R but this kind of game is too boring. Good thing about it is that it has a lot of space (huge map), but this huge map does not have anything except textures. It is like in BIG EMPTY FOREST. lot of missions but not fun and very easy to finish. Did not excpect that so I would not recomend that game to you if you are big fun of shooting, unless you like nature and random stuff.

What can i say about clear sky....it's not good as Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat but i still had tons of fun in this game. Clear sky had few annoying things but those can be solved with mods and after that it is good as other stalkers.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ( Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers )

Played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. FPS trilogy series for hundreds of hours ( retail version ) with mods of course - unmatched gritty post-apocalyptic atmosphere ( the only western counterpart comparable is Far Cry 2 ) - highly recommended !

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

In my book this is a classic post-apocalyptic game, with an awesome atmosphere and story even it moved away from novel that inspired the creation of it. You should definitely play it.

This is the last one of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. serie's and it's not as good as the other 2's but its still a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game so it does have the same feeling and thrill!
