The surreal glitches in reality that litter the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, squashing or contorting or combusting anything unlucky enough to stray into their grip, have remained an ever-present force across the franchise. The first game, Shadow of Chernobyl, conjured up a shaky yet captivating picture of a bleak nuclear winter. Its successor, Clear Sky, fell somewhat short of the mark, throwing more into the mix and ultimately emerging as a bloated, bug-ridden shadow of what came before."
