First impressions?

It's a stalker's dream come true...

A bit of a let down though, to find out the storyline is still around ShoC's time period (I seriously craved for strelok's first raid to the centre of the zone, meeting Fang, Ghost, Doc etc.) But alas, the game has been through rough times and the team's been pressured enough, so it's understandable. Once you go further into the game though, you forget about all and love it even more, thanks to the completely new levels, decor and exploring which give a fresh feeling. The X-ray engine's an old working champ, but the level of detail and visual candy they've drained out of it is astonishing. Truth be told though - i'm on r1 to add that old stalker feel, and it looks just as good on static lighting too! It has the occasional bug here and there. Some of them critical, but not enough to make it a bad day to all the stalkers that waited for this gem of the Stalker franchise.

Overall - i think the game met the expectations and the hype was worth it. 10/10

I'm loving the fact that water and foilage slows you down when running, Clear sky had the water slow down (I can't recall SOC having it) and I missed that in COP.

In SoC it was also there.

Well, finally back at my PC, got it downloaded and installed via the Torrent. Worked smoothly and took about only 2 hrs complete. Didn't install the Dx provided with it though, doesn'T seem to matter so far.
Running it on Full Dynamic Lightning Dx10 with all maxed, looks wonderful. I'm going to spend the next hrs just exploring the landscape

Honestly, I am blown away by the extra content and level design. Getting lost in Cordon and just the strong desire to explore made me feel like I was experiencing all the best parts of this beloved series all over again.

It took me a few hours to get into it - to become familiar with some of the bugs, tweak my settings just right, etc, but once I did, it was really difficult to leave the computer. I was definitely sucked in.

I am bummed about the crashes (foot bone), the render jitters (flickering sunlight issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19dOuEmXQm4), and how disproportionally taxing this is on my computer, but overall, this is a pretty incredible achievement. I think after a few patches to address these issues and add extra polish the full potential will be realized.

Well done to everyone involved.

Not able to play...

Damn three or four weeks...three or four weeks with left hand in a gypsum cast

I tried if the game works for me, it looks really fine...but I am not able to play just with right hand and one left finger...

Why did I beat that guy so much that I broke one my metacarpal bone? Didn't know then about coming LA release...

I'm really enjoying it too, It's a shame some of the things like the two Tushanko errors haven't been fixed during testing though, I've noticed the lack lustre AI aswell, It's a pity more wasn't done with that as there's some pretty good AI developers working with Stalker mods at the moment.
