Hell, I'd be pissed if I had over $1000 in graphics cards and was playing a game at 20fps for even a second.

That's an anomaly!!!!

To be honest, this game has never looked any good to me.

My Russian version has a must buy on it, so count PCGamer Russia as a good review! Well, I assume that it was from PCGamer Russia... :/

Agree, the screenies in general look poor compared to the flyby videos posted not so long ago.
I think you aren't really used to the "graphical style" of STALKER games. as for the SSs... I dono - Idid see all of the effects from the trailers and preview videos and they looked... well... the same I guess.

Don't know...

It does not take my breath away like SoC did, but it does have a few really good places/fights, but all of the problems do not help the game. I guess I will have to wait a bit more to make my mind up about a score. BTW - at this moment Ican't go any further as the game crashes to desktop consistently just when I get into a new area after Limansk is complete.

Even though I didn't think it looked good at all, I always had my eye on it because I wanted to be surprised. I thought... maybe second time lucky. Still - nothing has impressed me so far and tbh it looks as dull as the first was (IMO of course). I'll definitely be giving it a miss.

Oh how much the graphics mean to you Sir!

The graphics suit the game pretty well though.

I didn't mention the graphics. I'm not a 'graphics' person.

I've not played it so obviously I have to make assumptions on looks. The gameplay looks the same, if not close to the first and I didn't like the first. I didn't mention graphics specifically.

Yeah the two games are obviously going to be similar! Ok, let's just stop here.
