Summary: Don't flinch at the age of this game. Just buy it, and then download the free texture and atmosphere upgrade mods available online. There are also some other minor equipment and convenience mods to explore that will make the game a little more enjoyable. However, they are not by any means necessary.
Groundbreaking in its day, the continued mod support and timeless challenge make this game a must-play for PC gamers

Summary: Let me begin with a warning: this game is not easy. We live among a generation of gamers raised to believe that 'realism' involves Ramirez dashing back and forth between flaming husks of APCs, eating bullets like breathmints, and constructing a mosaic to freedom with the bodies of the terrorists...
Summary: This is a fantastic game. I played it years ago and wanted to get it agin to play some more. Its the first of three games in the series and each of them is really well done except clear sky, which is very buggy and needs some polish. This is a game from '07 so dont expect cutting edge anything.
Summary: As a huge RPG fan, let me lead off by saying that this game is NOT an RPG. Games like Fallout 3 and New Vegas are RPGs with some FPS elements - in those, you level up and improve your character while enemies level up along with you, with extensive side quests to improve your character.
Summary: Some interesting gunplay mechanics, but otherwise a boring, repetitive waste of time. A good story might have saved S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but instead you go through mission after mission without the slightest idea of who you are or why you're doing what you're doing.
Summary: Okay, so I just finished this game and here's what I have to say about it. I expected a game where you make your own choices throughout the entire game, a game which really messes with your head because of it's setting, (loads of potential for thrilling concepts involving Chernobyl right?
Summary: This game is alot of fun. Its like a very early fallout but a little more modern in the way they dress and act. The graphics are alittle out dated but nothing wrong with that. I play fallout new vegas and i still want to play this game knowing my options =P its different in its own way but still...
Summary: This is the most realistic shooter I have ever played. Sure you can heal instantly but eating 8 sausage rolls but trust me thats a good thing. Guns shoot like they really would(meaning very inaccurate)And you carry only a small amount of items.
Summary: This is a game I’ve followed since it was in my PC Magazine… and that was back in 2002.So my expectations was high, when I’ve finally got some time with the game, and one thing is sure, it haven’t disappointed me, one bit, it just keep surprising me.
Summary: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is a great game, as is it's prequel, Clear Sky. Various mods such as Oblivion Lost further enhance gameplay. I've had some issues with the game being slightly bugged/glitched (mostly with Clear Sky), but it isn't a huge problem. Can't wait for Call of Pripyat!
