Bit-Tech: S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat Review

It may not be a game Bit-Tech can simply recommend to all readers, but if you liked the previous games or don't mind putting up with frustrating design oversights in order to get at the strangely (and just downright strange) fiction, then Call of Pripyat is a game that really delivers.

I never could get into shadow of chernobyl so i doubt i will try this one.

This review of the game sucks so if you notice in the comment area I wrote another one that's more informative.

STALKER is a great series and has the potential to beat out HALF Life.
if your new to the STALKER series and Call oF Pripyat is your first purchase well your in for a treat of frustration and HIGH REWARDS.

The Stalker series is for HARDCORE GAMERS. No0bs need not apply (go back to MW2)

This isn't run n gun. this is tactical explore eat sleep medical supplies upgrade weapons armor and use of artifacts to enhance your physical abilities. Don't get me wrong this is a fun and exciting game but don't expect to run through the game in 4 hours like MODERN WARFARE 2. Your going to have to put some time in and earn your way through the ZONE.

I just want to be able to buy the damn game! EB/Gamestop/Walmart/Steam/D2D do not sell it. Amazon says it will not be shipping until the 7th at the earliest, and so far the only place within a 100 miles of me that has it would Target and they are sold out. LAME!

The publisher needs to be fired.

Johandevries3155d ago

GSC always hooks up with rather amateur publishers... but I am glad they don't carry EA, Ubi or Codemasters with them, because then they would probably make a console game and see their resources limited.

If you ask me.. Metro 2033 is only 10 hours because of the XBOX 360 LIMITATIONS. Eat that.

BattleAxe3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

I think Fallout 3 was a bit longer than 10 hours on the 360, so go eat a ding dong.

Johandevries3154d ago

The graphics were bland and nothing-special, here you see the 360 failing. Game was probably still limited by 360, that's why they made all the seperate DLC.

I was thinking about trying this game out, but according to alot of the reviews, its just an average game. I wonder if this one will be as glitchy as the previous games. Metro 2033 is looking pretty sweet though.

S4NDM4N3155d ago

It isn't glitchy. They finally polished it out

And this review is terrible

"Call of Pripyat’s opening, and the fact that you’re literally just abandoned on a hilltop with only the barest information, will make the latest STALKER instalment incredibly difficult for newcomers to the series. This is especially true if you're expecting a standard FPS template, because that's exactly what Call of Pripyat isn't. STALKER is an RPG shooter series like few others, and that’s always been a large part of the appeal; that it genuinely captures the against-all-odds feel of being in an alien, survivalist situation. STALKER games typically aren't easy to pick up, or understand, or play (even on the lower difficulty settings), and Call of Pripyat is no different."

Lets make every game nice and easy

sigh...

Are you serious?

Johandevries3155d ago

Why should it be a problem that the game is not easy.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is for real men, go play Modern Warfare on your 360 or something!

Johandevries3155d ago

Metro 2033 is a nice game, but 10 hours is idioticly short.

I easily spent 50 hours with Shadow of Chernobyl and later on Oblivion Lost mod. Playing Call of Pripyat right now, and like nobody could expect, it has just a few problems! Clear Sky was a complete mess, never got further than the second map.
