If Fallout New Vegas and Dark Souls had a baby, it could come out like this. One-shot death headshots, weapon deterioration, pack weight limits, fast moving mutant dog packs - its all here! Coupled with strange goings on in the form of anomalies and emmisions, it all adds up to a game with a a great survival atmosphere.

Don't forget to buy a new F5 key before starting...

This is one of the best games I played in my life. The Story? Long, The atmosphere? Absolutly fantastic! Play with the highest difficulty for perfect experience (Trust me, i'm not an engineer) The different accuracy, durabillity and damage of the guns fits perfect to the game, you should take care of your guns or you will not hit the enemy as you wish and don't forget the durabillity of you armor! It could save your life.

Before I forget to mention it: You should try the mod Misery 2.1 it fits perfectly to the game if you like that the game is alot harder than normal. Oh and everything in the game looks and is better

This is one of those games that we lucky to have as PC gamers. Once you install Misery 2.0 you won't want to leave.

You are placed into a nuclear wasteland, you must scavenge supplies, like food and water to keep yourself alive. You live in constant fear of huge emissions of radiation coming from the plant. Everything is out to kill you. Have fun!

First of all, i'm really impressed with the Graphics and Shadows also there's a wide range of things to do and buy. Upgrade and repair your weapons and armor, eating food for health and hunger, finding artifacts. It's a great game

Stalker is a fantastic franchise, and this game is the perfect closing for the depressive story. *nano-spoiler* Strelok, the ♥♥♥-kicker and protagonist of the first game and the most important character of the series dind't get a very good ending in my playthough... but that's the beaulty of this game. *end of nano-spoiler* What you do and what you didn't do is important in the end. This is the best of all three games technically, but it's not better than the first in terms of mood. Maybe that's just because Shadow of Shernobyl was the first one I played, I don't know. If you like FPS and RPGs, and think that the odd relationship between Call of Duty, Fallout and Penumbra should result in a cool ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, genetically threesomely impossible, ucranian child, you will fall in love with this gem of a series. They are cheap even in full price, I asure you.

And one more thing: I am a HUGE fan of Fallout series (but yeah I prefer the original. More Mad Max and less America ♥♥♥♥ Yeah than the PFS ones, but still) but S.T.A.L.K.E.R is better. You shoot, your bullet has a parabolic trajectory, it hits the head, the enemy dies. No "5 hits in the head because ♥♥♥♥ realism and fun, ATRIBUTES AND MATH!!!" If there is an enemy around, you see it. No "I can't see because of a calculation between atributes and random enconter generator" or anything. Of course, this is a matter of taste.

Also, this game is almost bug free (it was 100% vanilla bug free in my playthough, at least). Perfect.

The game is great. Let's just start with that. I was looking for some style of survival with guns. Which is, most survivals I guess?

You'll want to get some mods on the game, as it is older and buggy. Pripyat Complete for playing the game fairly normally, but, with some improvments.

Or,

The Misery mod which adds a buttload of items and things you can do, however, makes the game a hell of the lot harder, so you're better off playing throught the game once first.

I played this in around 2 sittings. I couldn't stop, it was too much fun.

8/10

This is the best game i played ever, I love the stalker Bundle.
It is a horor, FPS and survival.
I Recomend it very much.
The best moments is when you struggle with ammo, Food and when a Blood sucker comes and you want to shoot but your weapon jams man i missed thows moments.

It is a really great game to me. Ive been playing the whole series since it came out and it has a good pace to the game. The only bad thing about it is that it takes a while to load if your computer isnt really made for gaming and when you reach new territory the lag is horrendus. But overall the game is really great if you like to kill monsters, scavenge for loot, and like the scary theme of it. Hope you like this review, i suggest getting any future games from this franchise because i probably will be doing so too :)
