My thoughts exactly. The style and atmosphere of the game was amazing, never played any other game like it even up til this day. The bugs however, ruined it and i wouldnt recommend anyone playing it unless you have every last patch installed. I know some bugs were so bad it even prevented the player from progressing through the game. And lets not forget the many mods and enhancements that made life in The Zone a little more enjoyable too.

Makes me want to install COP. I was waiting for COP Complete, it's out but I hear it makes the game worse. ::

Bugs!

Ok, Clear Sky was really buggy. Faction wars mostly.

But SoC and CoP were less buggy then Skyrim.

You're not being honest Ancient. I played SoC at release and it was pretty much broken and un playable. Skyrim at release was a lot more polished.

@crainger

I have played SoC for 10 months every day. Also i have spend many hours playing and modifying Skyrim.

Never i have had game stopping bug in SoC even with first version.
The same i can say for Skyrim, but i play it with unofficial patch and last official. I have start to play it 20-25 days ago because i was to busy modifying it.

So now you are saying they are about the same?

Also please let us in on your secret for time travel. I'd love to fit 10 months into a day.

There's no point to discuss this with you.

Forget it.

Finally installed and played some CoP last night. Vanilla no mods and that Stalker feeling was there. It's easily the most polished of the series, but the story it's quite there yet. I've only just started though.

There are a few things that annoy, like the subtitles rarely match the voice acting, the voice acting itself is terrible. ::
