I have to admit it looks pretty cool. I enjoyed S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

I grabbed it last night but can't play till after work.

I noticed it will be f2p but with a premium monthly sub option. I didn't see what the monthly sub was. I also didn't see what kind of items they plan to sell in their store to support the f2p model.

Visually I like what i see but is it worth paying for? Gonna find out tonight.

I loved the hell out of the stalker series and was SO looking forward to the next one. When they collapsed/no-not-really/ok-yes-we-did, I was really hoping that they would pull it together and make it anyway. Then, I saw what they had planned..... I'll give it a try tonite, but I really think they're just trying to grab all the cash they can with their product, and looks like a complete pay-to-win model.

Well from watching videos it looks hella good. I like that there are different game modes too. I can play alone, co-op or with everyone. I think the amount of people playing on any given map is quite limited though. And there are only a handful of maps atm.

Looks like a lot of what made STALKER a good game (atmosphere) is ruined. I'll give it a try, but it will most likely have spots of real gameplay between hours of mundane grinding unless you pay more than the game is worth.

So I tried it....it's pretty boring. Seemed like a deathmatch (second match I was in) and first match was like capture the flag sort of stuff...environment was interesting, but gameplay was really slow and felt clunky as hell. Never played Stalker personally but I'm not a fan of this so far.

Not what I was expecting at all. sad, I am a huge fan of the stalker games. There is something about the graphics that make it look cartoony in a way, or maybe like everything is made of plastic.

Glad I wasn't alone thinking it was terrible. :D I played another match and did pretty well, probably because I was lagging like a bitch, and it just reinforced my thoughts before. Combat and movement is clunky as hell, very unorganized feeling IMO. Menus are terrible, sound is awful as well. Game throws you in and doesn't explain things either, had no idea I wasn't supposed to go places and would get infected or some shit...shooting felt bad and just overall the game was pretty bad.

I agree it's not looking like something from 2014 but the 4-5 matches I've played enjoyed it. At one point the game crashed on me and once I've fallen through the map and got stuck under it but it's a BETA so it's ok. Might give it a try once it gets released but that seem far away.

IMO STALKER type games have always been about the atmosphere and pacing, and the sp experience of going it alone in an environment hostile with various enemy factions, mutants and weather anomalies. I watched about 3/4 of that video and there's nothing to convince me this has anything more than the CoD type games, except for a STALKER-like window dressing.

If this is stripped down to just factions, which it appears to be, much of the STALKER feel will be lost. It would be nice if intermittent severe weather, anomalies and mutants were somehow thrown into the mix. More and more the coop type games that have such AI or human controlled elements are becoming a favorable and refreshing change from the typical faction fighting of most mp games.

(EDITED)
Just found this on a Facebook Q&A page about the game:

"Q: What kind of dangers can the player expect to find in the game world?
A: You can expect traps, anomalies, unexpected enemy actions, weird and dangerous mutants and much, much more.

Q: How true will Survarium stay to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series?
A: Many of the game elements will be in common, such as survival, anomalies, factions, mutants etc."

Source: https://www.facebook.com/Survarium/posts/402277509793685

Wonder why they didn't mention any of this in the dev interview video. I'm assuming the anomalies and mutants are AI vs player controlled.

I haven't played any of the STALKER games, mostly because when they came out I still had my single core/AGP system (2004-2012) and couldn't even start it.
Once the game will be final I will give it a try again and see how it improved.

Honestly, the STALKER games are severely overrated and it doesn't surprise me a F2P game from the same people is mediocre.

I happen to think Stalker (all 3) are one of the best games ever released. Stalker is definitely underrated if anything.

The stalker singleplayer was utterly amazing. The atmosphere, graphics, gameplay, and the story... just mmmmm. The story is still one of the best I have played in games today. Shadow of Chernobyl was my favorite. The multiplayer of which I believe this is coming from was pretty poor.

By the way, GSC is starting up a new game....
