Really looking forward to this game.
Especially after finishing Metro Exodus & the side stories twice, on Hard and then on Harder versions.
These Post Apocalyptic style games suck you right in. :D

in the stalker shadow of chernobyl, i never actually finished it.
I was near the end with high radiation zone, fully armed soldiers at every corridor. My Gear was insufficient :(
I had a blast playing it even though it was difficult right towards the end.

I cleared 2 of the games out of the 3. I found one of them somewhat buggy. I mostly play at the most difficult and sometimes just under the hardest mode. With all games, the higher the difficulty the more the game somewhat cheats.

Looks great. I hope it's similar to Tarkov weapons wise, but in the stalker universe.

Faction Wars was pretty buggy... but it would have been nice if that system was extended to CoP and polished up some.

Faction Wars was pretty buggy... but it would have been nice if that system was extended to CoP and polished up some.
Clear Sky was my favorite. There is a fan based mod for the faction system that fixed up a good portion of the bugs and fleshed out some of the unfinished aspects of it. I'd say with the fan made mod the faction wars aspect fells like it's about 90% complete. Without the the patch it feels like it's about 60% complete and just slapped into the game. Who ever made it did a pretty dang good job. The faction war mod, I had fun restarting and joining up different factions to see what groups would play nice and who wanted to kill you....then you work on taking out camps and letting your own faction setup in those camps, great times.

SoC atmosphere was amazing. It had some glaring issues when it first released and the pin-point accuracy bad guys had with grenades was irritating as hell. You could be 50 meters out, hiding in a building and taking potshots at bad guys....then all of a sudden the on-screen grenade icon comes up and immediately BOOM! it explodes because the grenade cooked during the long flight, but doesn't actually explode until it hits the ground or you....I think the issue was eventually fixed in a patch. I played through the vanilla version a few times, got the true ending once and a couple of the alternate endings. I found you could "cheat" by utilizing pine trees; if you hid on the inside on some of them and shot out at bad guys, they wouldn't even take notice as you killed them...but that issue may have also been resolved with patches. I loved trying to head to small army roadblock nearby the STALKER camp at the start of the game....it was hard as hell to get up close and kill them all with a starting pistol and sawed off shotgun.

CoP was my least favorite - it was fun, the story was okay and some of the atmosphere from SoC was brought back. But it felt too linear compared to CS and SoC.

All in all, the series was very enjoyable. I probably put 200+ hours into all the games (nearly 120 into Clear Sky once I found the faction war mod).

Hopefully STALKER 2 can live up to what the series has already given us.

How is CoP more linear than any other? CoP is probably my favorite... the story isn't as great as SoC or CS, but it definitely has some moments and it's the most polished by far. I also loved being able to carry two full-sized weapons instead of having to switch the weapon I actually used and having an almost useless pistol slot.

Maybe I'll give Clear Sky another chance with that mysterious mod you speak about lol
I really hope S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 also lives up large and is as polished up as say? Metro Exodus was. If they play their cards right, they can revive the Stalker franchise beyond anything we've seen to date.

Mod looks to still be available. I'm not sure how compatible it is with other mods. Outside of official patches I've installed for the STALKER games, this is the only mod I've ever used for them.
