Product Description

Year: 2012, Place: Pripyat, the wasted city near Chernobyl, site of the world's most devastating nuclear accident. Decades later, unstable and inexplicable artifacts with malevolent powers are discovered within the zone. High risks do not stop the S.T.A.L.K.E.Rs, paramilitary adventurers and looters from entering the zone for profit. They are willing to face death to make a fortune by retrieving and selling those precious artifacts. When 5 military helicopters disappear in the zone, you must go undercover as a S.T.A.L.K.E.R and face off against mutants, an onslaught of enemy creatures, and other bizarre atrocities that reveal the true face of terror. Where most first person shooters rely on relentless action to engage their players, Call of Pripyat goes in an entirely different direction: allowing for long moments of silence amidst a desolate landscape and an ever changing vista. It's the stuff grade-A horror movies are made of. The haunting atmosphere tries the nerves of even the most seasoned gamer. The environment is dynamic: day and night alternate and are filled with thunderstorms and sunshine. Deadly radioactive emissions occur periodically but unpredictably, killing anyone and anything who cannot find shelter. Live the life of undercover agent Major Degtyarev, an experienced stalker, as he operates within the Zone. This is non-linear gameplay at its best, as the player seeks allies and makes enemies in the treacherous and fragile balance between rival factions, bandits, and mercenaries. Friendships are only temporary in the Zone, where a bullet that was supposed to protect can become the instrument of death in a matter of split seconds. Multiplayer modes provide endless enjoyment as players compete against each other individually and in teams to increase their rank and money. Climbing up the ladder is the way to get access to the most devastating weapons. A player's success depends on his proficiency in warfare and his ability to help his team.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb wasteland masterpiece August 5, 2011
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is an incredibly well crafted game, rich with depth, challenge, opportunity, and motivation. The sequel to the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Call of Pripyat has some enhancements over the original that make it even more immersive and enjoyable.

The gameplay and the environment are the best features by far, and at the top of a long list of features I enjoyed about the game. The game is visually pleasing, though not the best graphics. However, the blend of the visual quality coupled with the motion of everything from characters and NPC's to the sway of grass in the wind, and even the change in weather, presents a very real and very immersive game experience. The gameplay itself is rather smooth, once you get used to the controls and the interface. The combat is great and based largely on the player's ability and the quality of the weapon. Furthermore, opponent AI shows a degree of realism and sophistication that encourages you to adapt, rather than opponents who just savagely rush and shoot at you. And, though many reviews had this as a negative, the vast expanse of the game was something that I think added to the realism, and indeed, the suspense of the game.

Here are a few other features I thoroughly enjoyed:
+ Unlike it's predecessor, where artifacts lay around like acorns, the methods of acquiring artifacts in Call of Pripyat are vastly more challenging, and more rewarding.
+ NPC interaction is great, and most NPCs offer some good data, tasks, and/or story element that add a little something to the game. Sometimes it becomes laborious, though, especially when you have to speak with the same NPC's over and again.
+ Weapon and armor modifications are great! It adds a level of personalization to your character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun April 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had played all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games up till this one and honestly was impressed and disappointed at the same time...The difficulty in the other two games was incredibly high, this game removed all doubt of the series making progress into the "pick up and play" department. It's easy to get into and even easier to get addicted to. Its fun finding weapons and then tweaking them, and theres more exploration so you may find hidden special weapons that you can use the rest of the game in the first 10 minutes if you know where to look. All in all I put, easily, 20 hours in and I don't think I'm close to finishing. Also all the people with DX11, you're going to love the tessellation and light effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Experience July 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
I loved this game. I have never encountered anything like it. It is part adventure, part puzzle-solving, part shooter, and part role playing. This was my first encounter with the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series so you do not need any previous experience. However, the game is extremely complicated (in my opinion) and I could not make any progress until I consulted an online guide. Honestly, I don't know how anyone figured this thing out for the first time and how long that must have taken. But with the guide in hand I was able to really enjoy the game and all it has to offer. The first time through I missed several missions and made some other mistakes that made the finish less than satisfactory (I didn't have the guide in hand when I started). But my second time through I had a much more complete experience and I am hopeful my third attempt will be better yet. You can play this all the way through with different results and challenges each time because decisions you make along the way change how the game unfolds. I think that is really enjoyable. It's like having several different games all in the same box. And you can improve your performance each time or experiment to see the impact different decisions can have. Finally, the graphics in this game are second-to-none. But that comes at a price. This game is more graphics intensive and demanding than even original Crysis. It is the most hardware-taxing game I have yet played. But if you have the equipment for it, the graphics (and sound) are just outstanding.

The only negative I have is that it is all too easy to get fully immersed in the game such that you forget to save and you can easily lose an ungodly amount of progress that way. There are not a lot of automatic saves so please try to remember to save frequently. After you forget a couple of times, you will probably remember from then on!

Lots of action, with lots of missions in between A bit slow and repetitive at times, but the overall feel, plot, story-line work well together. A classic that has been reviewed many times before now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Stalker (Unmodded) July 22, 2011
For 9 bucks this game is well worth buying. Despite few drastic changes to the original formula, I'm impressed by the level of detail that this team put into this Stalker. I would even go so far as to compare the depth of interaction to Fallout 1 or 2. On top of this
there are multiple outcomes for many situations.

Its graphics are little improved over the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R game, but it seems those efforts were put into making it a more rich experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game July 8, 2013
By Dave A
Verified Purchase
First off, NO DRM. No CD-check or any of that garbage. Install the game, put the CD away for safe-keeping, and enjoy.

Graphics are incredible. The rising sun filters through the brush, it's that accurate. The shadows and lighting are suburb. The flashlight (which never runs out of battery, thankfully) is true to life, even down to the slight delay it has following your movements. The brush are sprites, and kinda look like it, but it's not that noticeable. The human characters move well. Many bend points instead of the one or two a lot of games have. The zombie Stalkers are expertly crafted.

The entire game mostly reeks of quality and forethought. The weapons are varied and unique to each other, the backpack system is very well thought out. All the icons and indicators are perfectly set up, and immediately intuitive.

This is a very complex game. It's like GTA IV as far as an open world, but the missions are multi-faceted and obscure. You really need a walkthrough guide or A LOT of time on your hands to figure out how to complete some missions. When I first started, I was real confused because I am not from a role-playing background, and interacting with all the characters in a game was kind of new. Some missions need to be done in order, or you fail one or the other, but there's no indication of it until too late.

It doesn't take much to kill you. Save often. One well placed shot is game-over. It seems like the characters in the game can handle the machine guns way better than you can (there's a lot of muzzle rise even after customizations)

The controls are great. You can set all your movements like Unreal Tournament. The only flaw is you cannot run+strafe. It slows you to walking speed when you strafe.
