S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (PC)

 

Like its predecessors, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is all about stretches of chilling stillness and thick dread, punctuated by the tense thrills of menacing mutants and the rush of discovery. If you've played either of the first two games of the...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat

 

Well that's the life that fans of the brilliant Ukranian-based developer GSC Game World have grown to love in the first two STALKER games: Shadow of Chernobyl and Clear Sky.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat

 

Call of Pripyat was a decidedly difficult game to anticipate. Coming as it was from a series which has spawned both a hit and a miss, for many the third instalment was anything but a certain success. In 2007, gamers worldwide found themselves...

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.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

 

That's right, folks, GSC Game World is back with yet another addition to its post-apocalyptic FPS series. In case you forgot, the first game was S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, followed by a stand-alone title Clear Sky, which served as a prequel...

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...

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

STALKER: Call of Pripyat Review

 

Ukranian developer GSC Game World took PC gaming by the jibblies when it announced the first STALKER game back in late 2001, and the eventual release six years later gave us an interesting, challenging, and unique experience that was unlike any other...

For anyone who loves STALKER, it's hard to find a reason not to pick this one up. It offers the same free-roaming first person shooter action we've seen before with its signature foreboding atmosphere and a couple of new surprises. Casual action fans...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat

 

This third call is predictable.

Still charming despite it's flaws; great NPC interactions; better side jobs

Eating mechanic is tedious; supplies are too available; predictable encounters

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat

 

The most stable S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game yet also happens to be the most atmospheric and compelling.

Bleak ambience creates a fantastic sense of place ; Lots of tense exploration ; Numerous improvements over the previous games ; Some cool new enemies to take on

The story takes too long to get interesting ; Pripyat isn't as interesting as the surrounding wastes

STALKER: Call of Pripyat

 

Chernobyl is as atmospheric as ever, though it's getting a bit familiar

Full of radioactive goodness ; Can look stunning at times ; Lots of good new additions

Very little real progress since the original ; Too easy now ; Sometimes looks dated

However, if you haven’t or indeed can’t get enough of the Zone, everything you want is right here. The map is completely new, so there’s loads of new bits to explore and Pripyat itself is one of the best things yet seen in a STALKER game. Things don’t...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat Review [PC]

 

There are currently two ways to visit the radioactive ruins of Chernobyl: you can spring for an expensive guided trip into the zone, complete with Geiger counter test, radioactive protection suit and see the zone first hand- or the much cheaper...

Impressive, eerie visuals ; Lots of side missions ; Robust artifact system

Steep requirements for Directx 11 Lighting ; Poor character models and animations ; Poor voice acting ; Boring story

For a series that has been capable of pushing out games annually within its tight development cycle, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is a satisfying experience only hampered by a few jarring visual issues. Fans of the series will be delighted with the...
