Custom PC writes: "There have been many great characters in gaming history. From Niko Bellic and Max Payne to Mario and Ryu, there have always been characters who stand out from the games they call their homes. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky (the first and last time we'll use all those dots) cements the place in gaming history of another great character, fast making a case for itself as one of the greatest of the last few years: The Zone. It's back, it's hungry, and in Clear Sky you're right back in the heart of it.
It might seem strange to describe the actual setting for a game as being its main character, its hero and villain, but with Shadow of Chernobyl and now, even more so in Clear Sky, the STALKER games have accomplished this."
