For all of those contemplating on getting the game.... let me break it down for you like this. The game takes place is a radioactive cluster ♥♥♥♥ in russia. For all those expecting to walk out into the wastes and become welcomed by a forest of gumdrops and rivers of chocolate with fuzzy kittens rubbing at your feet, you've never been more wrong. Everything that isn't a landscaping prop will try to ♥♥♥♥in' kill yo ♥♥♥. Packs of wild dogs run around knipping at your ball hair, wild hogs humping the ♥♥♥♥ out of you. In soviet russia, zombies shoot you.... no really the ♥♥♥♥ing zombies shoot at you with ♥♥♥♥ing machine guns. As if this ♥♥♥♥ got even better, you got special creatures that go invisible and only show up when they are 5 ft infront of you and suck the blood out of your noob ♥♥♥. Then jabba the hut and yoda had crazy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and spawned this little ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ in a cloak who has telekentic powers that shoots boxes at you and I know some of you cowboys and "shotgun billS" will try and run up and deliver a lead salad to its punk ♥♥♥ face, but wait, he'll rip that ♥♥♥♥ from your hands and slap your pee pee so hard you'll somehow ♥♥♥♥ yourself. If you somehow manage to un♥♥♥♥ yourself and not die from the gratuitous amount of ♥♥♥♥ he will throw at you. You'll have to empty five clips into his dwarf ♥♥♥ before he croaks. Aside from everything that sees you as food, there are these emissions that occur. If you're out in the open without cover, you're ♥♥♥♥ed and you basically die unless you have antibiotics... idk how that works.. but emissions are pretty random. Think of them like a thunderstorm and a nuclear bomb had a baby and it occurs on random. I can't count the amount of energy drinks I had to consume pack ratting weapons into a ♥♥♥♥ing hole in the floor just to live from this ♥♥♥♥. Storyline is long and there is a lot of ♥♥♥♥ to do. Main cash flow in the game are artifacts and some high priced weapons you probably wont sell. You have to go searching in the wastes for these ♥♥♥♥ing things only to feel like your being ripped off by the vendors. Some artifacts bring in a nice penny though. Most creatures are tougher than mike tyson on pcp, so don't be stingy with your ammo. MAKE SURE THAT ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥S DEAD IN THE DIRT. Your weps and equipment are going to degrade fast as hell. Do you have man ♥♥♥♥? No problem. Some creatures will knock those ♥♥♥♥ right off your chest... along with a good chunk of your health. Doesn't matter how good your equipment is... if you don't have skill you're going to die... a ♥♥♥♥load of times... learning curve is easy the more creatures and the different kinds you face but it never gets easier. Use enviornment to your advantage. Some areas are darker than ♥♥♥♥, which hides most creatures like the burer who shoots motha ♥♥♥♥ing mind bullets at you. That's pretty much it. So if you like swamp ♥♥♥, eating highly processed sausages and vodka and shooting ♥♥♥♥ and dying and explosions and eating nails for breakfast lunch and dinner.... this game is for you.

BTW. The game does not come with KY jelly. Before you play I advise you to go to your nearest store and buy some.

> Went artifact hunting
> Saw a pseudodog by his lonesome
> Shoot it and it runs off
> Minutes later it returns with about 15 or more dogs
> Chased me till I run out of stamina
> Accidentally felled into an anomaly cave
> Dogs stopped chasing me and ran away
> Blowout started
> Was out of ammo and health was low
> Somehow survived the blowout and the anomalies in the cave
> Got out of the cave with my expensive ecologist suit on 15% durability
> Got attacked by mercenaries
> My expensive suit broke
> Got back to Skadovsk with all my gear broken or gone.
> Bought a bottle of Vodka
> Cheeki Breeki time

10/10 "Would go artifact hunting again"

STALKER is a diamond in the rough... it doesnt have nearly enough attention it should yet it is still a known game.
If you like fallout
if you like survival games
if you like atmospheric, story rich, intense fist person goodness.
i will guarantee you will enjoy it.

+ Atmospheric and realistic
+ story rich
+ long gameplay, huge map
+ many interesting guns, mutants and characters
+ AI is amazing
+ lots of complete overhaul mods (Misery 2.1)
+ Intense gunplay
+ day-night cycle... night is actually scary
(the list could go on so im stopping it here.. but you get it)

- couple years old, looks a tad ugly
- steam doesnt like this game, meaning it bugs out a lot and crashes (get the disc version)
- GSC (company) is dead... however has recently come back from grave, working on new title (new stalker???)
- can get extremely hard

Good luck STALKER
