Amazing experience!
31 August 2011 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl is definitely one of the best FPS/RPG games I have ever played. Now, no need to speak about the plot, you already know it. OK, I suggest that you download or buy this extraordinary game (and the others "Clear Sky" and "Call of Pripyat"), and enjoy it! This game has everything! Excellent: Story, characters, voices, graphics, atmosphere, sound, music... everything! Characters are very faithful, and you feel comfortable with them, as long as they are not your enemies. Voices are Ukrainian mostly, but I found that cool, but when they are talking to you, it's in English, fair enough. Excellent voice acting. Graphics are amazing. Atmosphere... now I don't remember playing the video game with such a realistic atmosphere before. This kind of atmosphere is filled with monotone, yet scary music scores, you can hear it in the main title... it is sad, scary, monotone... you can feel that something bad has happened and you must walk toward the only salvation - THE ZONE! (If you have watched "Stalker" from Tarkovsky, you'll get the point). It's just amazing how this kind of creepy visuals comes together with music and atmosphere... these... these landscapes, a faithful looks of deserted villages, houses, even Pripyat, which I found very fascinating! I am fascinated with Chernobyl, Pripyat and all of that thing that occurred on 26th April 1986. The sound is also very creepy, from unusual anomalies to the creepy mutated animals and other monsters that lurks in the dark. So, this is all you need to know. I recommend that you go, take your weapon, and go explore, kill, trespass, steal, be scavenger, be alone in the dark. This game gives you all of that! Play this... highly recommended!
