Building on the success of the previous Stalker titles (Shadow of Chernobyl and Clear Sky), this time the Ukrainian developers have ironed out the bugs, crashes and flimsy plot lines and ramped up the bleakness. Opening sequences play out like the trailer for the film, The Road. Only with more shotguns. No bad thing!"
