S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
Guide 2 Games
11 February 2013
Excerpt: This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of an agent sent to a special zone area to investigate an operation gone awry. As players move through abandoned buildings and deserted facilities, they shoot at several soldiers, aliens, and mutant dogs.
Excerpt: Post-apocalyptic settings in games are all the same. It’s brown and empty, there is no law, and it’s every man for himself. Often people are mutated into horrible creatures or live underground and if you go to the surface you run the risk of serious injury.
Blurring the Line: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Call of Pripyat – Staff Review
16 March 2010
Excerpt: The Zone is a harsh mistress, as all who’ve followed the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games can attest. GSC Game World’s adventure-heavy shooters borrowed from both the real Exclusion Zone and works of related science fiction to present a unique, beautiful, and deadly environment.
STALKER Call of Pripyat review: Radioactive Utopia
4 March 2010
Excerpt: Jump the cordon, catch a helicopter ride, bribe a guard—but get to the Zone. There are bloodthirsty monstrosities, armed fanatics, deadly radiation storms, anomalies that will obliterate your body, or turn you into a moaning walking corpse—after all, why would Stalkers choose to vacation in sunny...
Conclusion: Call of Pripyat is not only a return to form for the series, but a breath of fresh air for an increasingly stale genre. Recommended for fans of the previous games and newcomers alike, this is how a real PC FPS should work.
Conclusion: Important note : The screenshots posted with this review were taken with DX9 based graphics.
Pros: The most polished game in the series, a lot of missions, coupled with a variety of gameplay improvements make this worth your time, it stays true to the compelling post-apocalyptic ambience of its predecessors and conveys the horrifying existence in nuclear fallout way better than games like Fall...
Cons: At times it feels like the story is non-existent, characters often seem lifeless and uninteresting, a few AI glitches and other technical problems are still present (nothing too get all miffed about though)... Multiplayer? Hardly noticed it.
Summary: The trilogy is complete – Clear Sky was a prequel to the first game and Call Of Pripyat is the sequel. After the first four hours of playing CoP, and having played both the previous games, I am impressed – CoP is one helluva game and it seamlessly integrates the best elements of its predecessors.
