The STALKER series was, is, and will always be one of the most beautiful and interesting game series ever created. At first glance, it is "just" a single-player first person shooter game, albeit a good one, which includes elements of survival horror. It takes place in the Zone of Alienation (the area in and around the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor in Ukraine, which was the site of one of the world's most shocking nuclear disasters in history.) However, in the fictitious game world of STALKER, this "Zone" is home to much worse than radiation and wild animals.

In STALKER, the zone is a place where the very fabric of reality starts to break down. Strange mutants with unexplained psychic abilities and deadly "anomalies" (Areas where the laws of physics simply do not apply, leading to the creation of highly valuable artifacts) pose a unique threat to the player that makes for interesting gameplay, while the threat of encountering a group of human enemies makes simply walking around from place to place feel tense.

The STALKER series is one of the very few games that manages to pull of one of the greatest feats of game design in all of history: It makes you question every decision you make. Every step could be your last. The game's level design is impeccable, based on the real Zone of Alienation. The audio design and color palette make the environment feel oppressive but beautiful in a sad way. The combat is gritty and difficult, and you will need to develop new tactics to defeat some of the more powerful mutants or large groups of human enemies. The game also has a big focus on exploration and elements of survival which fit seamlessly into gameplay. The game's lore is rich and there are many mysteries to solve. The modding community is strong, and there is an ever-present player base. The game has aged well.

It is always a worry of mine that games based of of real life events (especially tragedies) will dilute the importance or impact of those events, but the STALKER games approach the real-life Chernobyl disaster with maturity and respect. In fact, the game has probably done nothing other than make more people interested in learning about the disaster that took place.

All in all, STALKER has a special place in the hearts of many-including my own-and with good reason.

Despite the first game of the series holds the best story line...

The Games mechanics, items and gear etc. had evolved alot up to this game,
Also gun targeting and AI behaviour is alot better!

Mechanically the best of the Games, Story wise its better than Clear Sky.

Got this included in the STALKER Bundle Summer Sale, saved $30 and spent $10

Anyway, this game is ♥♥♥♥ing great. At the start it's slow, but after traveling, getting missions, making decisions, etc. ♥♥♥♥ gets heavy, especially if you ain't playing it on easy or stalker mode.

Like Fallout, this game is vastly better with mods. Play it with Misery Mod and the hard-core gamers out there will have the time of their lives.
