I managed to score a Machine gun from the Duty guys in Yantar, along with about eigth of their upgraded rifles, and they are still friendly with me, so I took their stolen goods back in and did an upgrade on one of them. LOL
THAT good eh?

It certainly looks good too. Some scenes are on par with Crysis.

I'm enjoying it more than the first one and I loved that.
Love the weapons and Armour upgrades too.

Thumbs down Re: Stalker Clear Sky

Hate it graphics is all it got going for it. Very unfinished rush job.

/rantmode on
  1. Quick save occasionally breaks missions. (using slow regular saves seems to work but pain in the ass considering how unforgiving night explorations are)
  2. Occasional crashes. (specifically while zoning to other maps)
  3. npcs stupid , scripted , annoying . (Uhh)
  4. enemy npc facing me behind wall shooting at wall...
  5. friendly npc moving sideways left to right and bouncing me around like pinball while i'm trying to take cover and hide behind boxes
  6. npc's generally have to big hit boxes or perhaps its player character , on several occasions im trying to take cover next to friendly npc and i can't ,somkind of invisible wall even thought there is clearly room for two more people behind cover....
  7. unrealistic behavior , no chance to sneak up on anyone even at darkest night , maybe they all have ultra high tech night vision and motion detectors
  8. Scripted game events invincible npcs (shoot all you want tower sniper can't die... not even after direct RPG hit... was it necessary to make him invincible ? no don't think so killing him would not break game...)
  9. And many little thinks that makes it feel unfinished or should have made better design decisions , poor monster animations weak death animation lack of dmg decals , better controls for one there is no prone but we have double crouch bleh, poor iron sight implementation should have learned from Crysis , poor weapon textures models , gotta rely on mods , and whats up with all these fake weapon names.
  10. Weapons also seem underpowered point blank hit from Desert Eagle in the face doesn't kill npc wth , no helmet in the world would save you...
Other then that i got stuck can't zone to chernobyl i think thats the name of the map , every time a crash..
Lack of good physic and destructible environment hurts , Crysis spoiled me.
Feels very much like beta , could have been so much better game without all these damn bugs.

/rantmode off

PS i got steam version 1.5.04 and was playing veteran difficulty.

I picked this up from CC for 29.99 and it is indeed a great game. Performance on my system is a little disappointing, and for some reason it seems like it runs better in DX10, which doesn't make much sense. Lighting is phenomenal.

Loving this game so far. Better than the first with the upgrades of Weapons and Armour. Man that makes a big difference.

After the 1.5.0.5 patch is released, I will be playing the game again, already finished the game 1 time without any mod, arrived at the Red Forest at night, that's quite scary lol.
