No disrespect to your fair self, but this is little more than a "puff piece".

Possibly externally financed. Posted by some self appointed 'critic' who managed to play the game in under three days.

Much as I will always praise LA for the prescient groundbreaking that it deserves, DC is a dog's breakfast at best that will not captivate the player.

The v1.4005 release, while more complete in terms of gameplay compared to v1.4002, has an enormous playability "hook" problem.

Certainly, the graphics workover is improved over previous incarnations. Should anyone expect otherwise? But honestly, a "new paint job" is the reviewer's basic premise.

No problem. I agree that ANY article of such a short length is rarely
ever more than a puff piece. Journalists barely scratch the surface of
whatever they are talking about unless it's an in depth review taking up
several pages and written more in detail than what we see here. I only
shared it simply because it is rare for Stalker Mods to get any attention
like this from the major internet news sites. Play it and share yours.

I'm in the process of doing that small thing and recording my exploits via a blog on the LA wiki.

Sadly, my first impressions are that I will be returning to this version much more rarely than I did with v1.4002, and FAR less frequently than I played the various flavours of LA proper.

It's not what it started out to emulate:

" Have you ever dreamt of playing the old, forgotten S.T.A.L.K.E.R.?
- Dez0wave teaser"

It's gone off-plan and tries to be all things to all stalkers, with the probable result that it will end up by satisfying few and appealing to even fewer.

That would be a tragedy.

But there's no HOOK to engage the player - the personal economy has been intentionally destroyed for the express purpose of keeping the player poor.

I don't mind a challenge, I don't mind a game being hard, I don't mind particularly a game full of "clutter items" - I'll ignore those that are irrelevant, I don't mind running round in low-tier armour (currently a Mail Jacket) and I don't mind doing the majority of my combat with the knife.

I don't want 'maxed-out' gear either. I don't need to buy a car either - those provided are quite sufficient.

But the "poor stalker" gig gets real old real fast...

As you can see, I might not be as enamoured of v1.4005 as the article writer seems to be.
