    To whoever doesn't have this game buy it, it's such a decent price, it's less than a pack of cigarettes.

    One of my favourite all time games!

    Purchased this when it was on sale a while back, and what a waste of money. Wouldnt recommend it really.

    What didn't you like about it? Plus, if people don't like it, £3.50 isn't really wasted. I've paid more than that for a pint in places.

    Stalker? I barely know her!

    Anyway, seems pretty cool, but I probably won't get it.

    This deal is still going on. It ends at mid night tonight though.

    Pretty good deal, even if it isn't a "great" game, it still should be worth $5.00

    Stalker is a FPS with some RPG elements. Yes is DX10. The multiplayer is simple like counter strike and many others.

    You have to play this game for the single player story. Is amazing.

    Shadow of Chernobyl isn't DX10 - Clear Sky is DX10.1 and Call of Pripyat is DX11. The multiplayer sucks donkey balls due to the fact everyone uses hacks.

    Maybe you have bad eyes? I dunno, I never had any difficultly seeing anything. Definitely check out the STALKER threads we have going on 'ere and this mod get highly recommended. However, ImperialReign is the guy to speak to about STALKER.
