This game could have all monsters and bad guys removed, and be re-released as a walking simulator. It would be a dumb decision, as the gameplay also is brilliant, but the atmosphere genuinely is that good.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: CoP, possibly the best dying breath from any game studio ever. It's occasionally a bit rough around the edges, but it is absolutely worth it.

Though no sequel will ever be released, with mods like CoC and Misery, it's not like a sequel is needed either way. With a bit of modding, even the graphics aren't subpar to today's standards.

I have played this game before and I loved it, hence the recommendation. However, after buying the Steam version in the 2016 Summer Sale I'm unable to play it without the game crashing and freezing within minutes. I'll keep trying to work this out but as of yet I can not play it.

Specs (to say that it isn't due to a slow system):
Gtx 970 graphics
FX 8350 CPU
16GB 2100Mhz ram

Call of Pripyat is definitely the best STALKER game yet. It's a much tighter package, but for a budget title there is still a hell of a lot to do and The Zone still seems intent on killing you or scaring you senseless.

Zaton, Misery.

Walking. Watching the sun slowly rise, it could've been a scene from a thousand years ago- with no cars, no lights, no noise but the animals and wind through the trees.

Human interference seemed so minute, I barely noticed the subtle gunfire in the background, the cracked and blistered road I walked across.

Then suddenly-

CRACK.

Something small and fast whizzes past my head like a bee.

No time to check.

I hold shift and book it.

There's a van nearby. Maybe two metres, maybe four.

I make a line straight for it.

CRACK.

I hear the bullet thump into the road. A plume of dust floats past the van i'm hiding behind.

I pull my gun out from it's holster.

It's a 357 magnum revolver. Condition is terrible, and rust visibly coats the gun like fungus on a tree.

Three shots. Better make them count.

Pull the hammer back, ready to fire.

I hold it steady, creeping my way to the edge of the van.

I peak out the side. Slowly. Carefully. Don't make it obvious.

Binoculars out.

In front of me is a hill. Tall and green, with a thick layer of grass and foliage covering the top like mould.

Something flashes in my eyes. Movement. I track it like a sniper.

The grass is moving, alive like some unknown mutated creature of the zone.

I look closer.

Whoever it is, his outift blends in well with the greenery. He evidently hasn't noticed me yet, and he's moving down the hill no doubt for a better view.

On his back is a long gun. Maybe a rifle, maybe a shotgun. It's metallic sheen stands out like a sore thumb amongst the natural hues surrounding it.

I check my gun again. Yeah. Definitely just three shots.

I wait.

He reaches the edge of the hill. Cautious. Careful.

Starts running.

Not close enough yet.

As soon as he goes past the van, that's when I'll start moving.

From over his shoulder he reveals his gun to be a shotgun. The long barrelled 'over-under' type.

It'd be deadly if I give him the chance to use it.

His aproach is swift, not wanting to be caught out in the open road, completely disregarding the van I could be hiding behind.

Now.

I slowly creep to the back of the van.

Small, miniscule steps mark my way as I go, gun aimed with an intense trigger finger.

It finally centres over his head.

I stand up.

Calmly walk out into the road. Gun still trained on his head.

I wait until he notices something. The subtle echo of footsteps, or just good situational awareness, he eventually hazards a look behind him.

"ANNU CHEEKI BREEKI IVV DAMKE," I scream in real life, as I hit mouse1.

The gun jerks back as a plume of smoke appears at the front end of the barrel, and my vision goes hazy at the edges for a moment.

Then it happens again. Then again. What? What the hell is happening? The same sounds, the same bullet sound, over and over again until -

"X-ray engine has stopped working. Windows is trying to find a solution to the problem,"

10/10 Would have the game crash on me again.

You know that sensation when you finish a great book or great movie, that sensation of emptiness inside of your heart, knowing that you have to say goodbye to the characters and story, and know that you will never have the same experience again?

You'll get that sensation when finishing Call of Pripyat. Just buy it already.

I'm surprised I don't have a review written for this... Even 6 years after its release, it remains as one of the best games out in the market right now. Best one in the series

This is the best in the series, IMO and one of my favorite games. Was made by the talented developers at GSC Game World, which later became the 4A games that made the fantastic Metro series. This game's great and even better with mods( which you can find at moddb). This is a MUST have for anyone interested in post-apoc FPS games.

Takes an hour to figure out and get into, but you won't put it down when you do. For new players, I suggest playing on vetern and youtubing "STALKER Call of Pripyat secrets", so you can find where stashes are to get a good early weapon.
For mods; I'd suggest atmosfear, absolute nature and absolute structures. Check out Misery after you beat the game once, because it's much harder and changes a lot.

10/10 - We need a redux version of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

More mutant mayhem

The story in CoP takes up where SoC left off (although you play as a different character) so it seems fitting that I played the games in that order, missing out Clear Sky (for now). As with SoC, this is quite a tough game (no hand-holding here), although it didn’t seem quite as tough as the original. It’s also a good deal shorter, with the main storyline taking about 15 hours to complete (there are, of course, a fair few side quests, but I didn’t complete all of them). The graphics are an improvement over the original, especially if you use some of the mods available. It’s also less buggy. The voice acting is okay, if a little variable, as are the character animations. This is, in many ways, a straightforward continuation of what has gone before, and the impressive STALKER atmosphere is maintained along with the challenging gameplay. Despite the improvements, however, there is less diversity in the environments compared to those found in SoC, and the world is less expansive than it is in SoC. And the story, although more coherent, is somewhat lighter. But this is still an immersive and enjoyable game to play. 3.5/5
