STALKER series any good? - Page 3

post #21 of 62
the STALKER games are a ton of fun, but you have to go in knowing they are not your typical FPS game. much less action, much more ambient immersion.

here's some screens from my various playthroughs:

^ Awesome screenshots. The atmosphere and overall immersion of the STALKER series is really unparalleled IMO.

You won't regret the purchase.

I've recently started COP since I bought it when steam was having a ridiculous sale a long time ago. I highly recommend installing mods like complete mod. It just makes the whole Stalker experience better.

Thanks a lot, guys. Gonna purchase it when I get home. On my phone now. Will also be handing out reps (phone doesn't like to do it for some reason).

One more question. How does the game run on max settings? Like, how well is it optimized? Also, how good are the graphics with the newer mods? Screenshots are one thing, seeing it in actual play is another. I'm finding videos of older versions of the mods, and they look good on the phone.
In progress.

The complete 09 mod is quite amazing, and for me, the game runs great, I have heard some people having issues, but you shouldn't have an issue.

And the graphics with the mods compared to stock are fantastic

Its pretty well optimized , even the mods.Though it will most regularly hit the 2gb limit in 32-bit systems but other than that its fine.
