To say it's horrible is unfair. This game is simply what happens when you try create a shooter that a Call of Duty type player might play, except on a non existing budget. The result is a game no one needs or have to ever play, because it's worst in every aspect to any AAA game that tries the same.

If you don't have the resources to make a decent shooter, then try come up with something unique on a much smaller scale, like many of the successful indie devs have done on Steam.

Steady 16 frames per second. Alt + F4 works sometimes. Proceed with caution!

It's a first person shooter, set in Chernobyl. And no, it's nothing like STALKER, so don't get your hopes up. It's better described as Call of Duty without money. And really nothing more. You go from waypoint to waypoint, using your guns to shoot people in the fashion we're all familiar with: iron sights, head shots, grenades, take cover to regenerate health, get insta-killed if you stray too far from the path. Rinse and repeat. Literally, there is nothing more to the game. It's the modern FPS formula laid bare. Unadorned by budget, technical proficiency, or resources.

It's got a few entertaining quirks, and it's not without charm, but any value you might derive from Chernobyl Commando can be easily derived from other, better sources.

I had seen all of the negative reviews. I had seen the flaws that this game had and people mentioned, yet I refused to believe that a game could be *that* bad... Well, yeah. It's pretty rubbish. I love FPS games, and I can tell you that this is a benchmark to garbage FPS games. You can run for about 3-4 seconds and then you're as tired as if you had ran for three days straight. Yes, you can carry lots of guns, like 40 sniper-rifles and a silenced pistol that fires peas, and even if the bugs that haunt this game calm down, your super-soldier-friend-that-is-Rambo-and-Charlie-Sheen-combined-and-never-dies has killed all of the enemy AI, who, in most times, stands in the open because hiding in cover is too mainstream. And yes, there are scenes where you are in the back of a Jeep with a badass MG at hand... Yet you'll fire it, like, 0 to none times.

Just no/10

I can't even play this - background sounds are terrible. Price is too high.
Graphics are good, but physics not. It looks like I am flying in space..
It is not possible to open Windows task manager, when playing.

LMG never runs out of ammo
Audio cut off before and after combat
2005 graphics

After the iconic STALKER series from GSC Game World, not many shooters have gone to the Chernobyl area wholeheartedly.Chernobyl Commando dedicates its whole story to the infamous area in Ukraine and, like its name suggests, organizes a pretty intense encounter throughout the ruins of the location.The game tasks players with stopping a group of terrorists from making off with radioactive material from the irradiated plant.hile the game does surge forward with the plot, it's a paper-thin one as basically the player needs to follow the terrorist convoy with the stolen radioactive materials throughout that area of Ukraine and in other locations.In terms of actual gameplay, Chernobyl Commando wants to deliver an old-school shooter experience in which players run around mercilessly killing anyone who stands in their way. In practice, however, it's like an odd mix between actual old-school shooters, like the iconic Painkiller, and a realistic military experience, like Battlefield or Call of Duty.The result is a game with a wobbly first-person camera, realistic guns that have a hilariously bad accuracy, and enemies that are more or less bullet sponges.The actual shooting is also disappointing, as it seems that the only accurate weapon is the sniper one. Enemy AI is also erratic, as sometimes foes will just run in the middle of the battlefield, while other times they'll just shoot at you from huge distances.The actual levels are relatively well designed but, while they suggest the idea of an open environment, they're mostly filled with invisible walls.In terms of graphics, Chernobyl Commando is adequately bleak for the desolate environment, but its colors are a bit too washed out for its own sake. The soundtrack is utterly disappointing, not just because it's generic but because it consists of around 30-second clips that loop around in a disjointed manner. The voice acting is mediocre and relies a lot on military slang that doesn’t impress anyone.What's more, the game lacks any sort of multiplayer.Chernobyl Commando is an utter letdown. From the shooting to the movement, the actual content, or the visuals, the game disappoints in all sorts of ways. Overall 4/10.

Hit detection is bad. Guns are all similar sounding and flat. Enemy AI is questionable at best. Enemies are all like the same guy in 4 different outfits. The AI buddy is a awful driver, goes like half a klick an hour, in circles around the area on one driving part. The aircraft are ugly, out of date, and the Yak-141 is being used as a low-alt level bomber, lol.
It's choppy and when it auto-saves the thing grinds to a halt. The music is all re-cycling 30 second clips, usually just when enemies are around, allowing you to never be ambushed, and always know when an area is clear

What isn't garbage is generic. All the missions are pretty much the same go to checkpoint, killing everyone in the area, where you either get a radio message, or 'interact' with the same 3 faces, who don't blink and who's mouths don't move when they talk. Then, kill your way to the next checkpoint. Had one sniper overwatch mission, which lasted 45 seconds before you had to move in. Vehicles aren't destructable. Nothing is destructable, bodies fall in one of 4 poses, no bullet holes in walls, glass, or other terrain.

Buggy, slow, terrible graphics. I'll be blazing away at a terrorist with my sights centred and the game won't register a hit half the time. All in all not even worth five bucks

Heh... Lets be honest then, There was only 3 good things in this game, no long cutscenes, animated menu with perfect looking (in game is much much uglier) and game idea / plan, and of course Chernobyl and Pripyat. Well... first thing i noticed, Lada Samaras and 1960s Dodge Chargers rusting on Red zone? Never seen or heard before (They said "perfectly and carefully remapped Red Zone" ?). Bad and stupid Al, lot of bugs and lag. Map barely looks like Chernobyl and Pripyat... and textures etc are low quality. Also killing enemy is even hard with turrets, but they can kill you with few shots. Also, you wear all weapons with you all the time. (4 heavy sniper rifles, AK47 and SMG, and 9mm silenced handgun). So... really... yeah... If you want 2004 looking game and like lag, then enjoy. Worth trying if free, just dont buy it.

This game is horrible. Not just your regular "horrible", but HORRIBLE! with an exclamation mark. Or two. Aim is a mess, AI is a mess. You want to take a step left from your place designed by the game - you lost the mission. You want to do something that is not determined by script - you lose the game. Did ya start the game and found that long lasting load screen fun? Ok. There's an enemy truck driver riding through your position in 1st mission. The dude simply rides through a spot filled with soldiers. He's f-- invincible! That truck has bulletproof glass and gas tank! I've shot him like 20 times and nothing happened. Not even a scratch. F-- this game!

Not very good at all.

Broken Hit Detection, no real recoil on the guns, music is repetitive... and these are some of the MINOR bugs we demonstrate a huge one in our video review (at the end)
