First, sorry if my english isin't the best.

I'm agree with Genocider.

In other games, probably I would love the cutscenes... but here, on LA, I hate it.

And beyond the "free*" game, and other things, I think if you CAN'T do a great cutscene, because you don't have the right elements, do not do it at all.

The magic word is SUBTLETY.

everything needs to be done with mystery and subtly.

Take an example of the X-16 lab:
Gordon Streeman?

SoCh do the same with subtly: one dead scientific's body, with one PDA.
And that's all!

The other thing that bothers me, it's some mutants.
In SoCh, you have mistery.
Another magic word: mistery.

When you see or have knowledge about some mutant, you think that the nature of the zone made it...

Later in the game, you see hundreds of documents and start to think: maybe the nature of the zone didn't all the work...

There, you have some 1+1 job in your mind.

In LA, unfortunately the dumb script do all the math.

I love the first game.
Because beyond the experiments plot, you have another percentage that the zone have somethng more... something beyond this world.

Just like the book.
Yeah, you remember the book, guys, don't you?
Roadside Picnic?

In SoCh, you can have %50 of human intervention... and another %50 of mistery.
Here on LA you have %100 of human intervention... and that sucks.
Isin't STALKER anymore, it's just Resident Evil or something else.

And again: mistery.
With STALKER you have mistery.
In Half Life you haven't mistery... you have that %50 human intervention, and %50 alien intervention.
And that's fine for Half Life...

Mistery and subtly... two magic words that the writers from LA need to remember for a STALKER game.

*Free game:
I say "free" game, because if you remember, Dezowave wasan't going to offer the game for free, they would sell it.

So... a finish game, with this same story and weird screenplay.

Another review, and much better english writing than mine:


Another silly, stupid plot (in my opinion):


When I stopped playing STALKER and start playing Neon Genesis Evangelion???
This is STALKER.
You don't need weird plot twits...

And that's all...
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
