    We brought news about a suspicion that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. stole from Half life 2 and Doom 3. It now looks like the issue has been resolved, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. did not steal a thing from the two aforementioned games. Half Life 2, as well as S.T.A.L.K.E.R., use textures from Marlin Studios - hence, the similarity. Furthermore, the IMP_Light texture, which also played part in the scandal as being taken from Doom 3, was, in fact, just a standard Impact Light texture, rather than referring to the Doom 3 monster.

    I'm glad to hear this. I really enjoy the game, the multiplayer seems to have a lot of potential, hopefully they'll keep developing it and refine the game modes. The single player is an experience unlike anything I've played before, it has enough RPG elements to be interesting, but not so many as to be distracting (Boiling Point). The interface can be a bit strange at times, but for the good part the game engine at least runs with relatively few bugs. Overall a great game, I'm glad to see that they didn't steal anything from other studios!

    I'm not surprised at all.
