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.

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

A game this bad, I'd normally just give an up vote and some joking review but not this one. I'm far too INSULTED with how bad it is. I didn't expect much, especially given that I bought this game solely on the principle is was really cheap at the time and called "CHERNOBYL COMMANDO". I didn't say I was expecting much but holy ♥♥♥♥. This has to be the worst FPS I've ever played. For starters, the first thing I notice is the game is really bloody dark and you can't at all change that. The graphics settings aren't even an option, you have to back out of the game entirely and start the launcher if you want to adjust. What is this, 2001? The game's super laggy and runs like my computer is a toaster. Turning down the graphics didn't really fix this. 10/10 optimization; already off to a good start I see.

The next is; there is no run in this game. "Forward" is equate to a casual stroll through the park and the "SPRINT" (I dare call it) ups your speed by about 75% for LITERALLY 10 feet. I say again; LITERALLY 10 feet (about 2-3 meters)

Yeah, see this crap? I started on the closest edge of the shadow. THIS is where your guy tires out. And he takes about 30 seconds after that to catch his breath. Didn't know you could join the CHERNOBYL COMMANDOS now regardless of being an overweight asthmatic. I should also note; this is a game where you do A LOT of walking with A LOT OF NOTHING to do.

The third thing I notice after about 10 minutes of god awful game-play is when I go to look up at the sky.. For some reason I can't explain, THE SUN IS BLUE. What? Why? I'm not going to nitpick this WEIRD "aesthetic" choice but why?... So I go on for a ways, I'm in some weird middle-ground between "Oh god what am I doing with my life" and laughing my ♥♥♥ off with the friends I'm streaming this for, at just HOW BAD THIS GAME IS.

So I'm about 30 minutes into the game on like.. level 3 or 4 or something, and I climb a ladder. Now, this is a ladder I *have* to climb to progress the story. I get stuck inside the ladder about 3 different times. I'm forced to restart, play the first 3-5 minutes of the level again up to that point and try over and over until the game finally lets me climb it. Alright, I do some sniping bit then have to climb back down. Joy. So now we're near the end of the section and there sits a truck we escape in. Thank god, no more walking! The truck travels at about 5 miles per hour and is stuck to invisible rails. The turret in back I'm forced to man is hilarious, as it has no ammo, cool down, or reload. That's right, you can just hold the trigger down as long as you'd like until you get bored. Doing this causes the muzzle flash to break away from the gun and drift off the screen somewhere. I'm in tears by this point.

The next loading screen takes about 10 minutes like they all seem to, I get bored and turn the game off. Me and another friend joke about how this must be some piece of crap FPS from the early PS1 era, to which he jokingly tells me he'll look it up. A couple moments later he returns with dread in his voice. "It came out last year..." We stop laughing.

TL;DR - A complete piece of crap, 2/10

(1 point for the fact it ran
another for the laughs me and my friends still have to this day about it.)

>"So you don't have anything good to say about it??"
>Sure I can say something good about this game!
>The main menu music was okay, but I wager it was probably stolen.

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.
