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.Read more ›
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!
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.Read more ›
