This mod comes with custom textures, a weather system, new sound effects, new difficulty settings, improved AI, reskinned weapons, new items and interface, as well as new menus and loading screens. In other words, this mod is touching and tweaking almost every aspect of the game."

STALKER is my favorite series and I play Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat all the time.

If your gonna play the STALKER series with a mod these are the two best mods:

1. The "Complete" Mods; greatly improves the graphics and A.I. of the STALKER games without changing the game play or mechanics

2. The "Reloaded" Mods; improves graphics and A.I. with very minor game play and mechanics changes to all STALKER games.

If you have never played STALKER then buy it, patch it, then install the Complete mod if your PC has the Balls to run it. The Reloaded mods are cool for a replay after the Vanilla version or Complete mod.

From what I've gathered the Misery Mod is similar to the Complete mod but makes the weather even more miserable than The Zone already is. Also the Misery mod seems to take some of the best Textures from other mods and stuffs them into the Misery mod.

But beware your PC better be super modern and have STALKER installed on a SSD to lower loading times cause the graphics will be pumped up to "Almost Crysis" levels with an additional 2.5GB worth of textures.

That's why i suggest the Complete mod cause it provides Ultra graphics while optimizing the engine for ease of use, high textures, and manageable loading times even on HDD.

I will be installing the Misery Mod upon it's completion to check it out and keep my Zone fixation in check until STALKER 2 in 2012.

Any of the stalker games support gamepad?whats the best mods for Shadow of Chernobyl?

ATi_Elite4617d ago

with the PC you can always use tools to allow you to play any game with a game pad. Hell you can play STALKER with Wii motes if you wanted to.

BUT.....very BIG BUT........STALKER has so much going on that you may wanna use a KB/M cause a game pad just does not have enough buttons to properly control STALKER imo.

PLUS STALKER has a "Lean" function that allows you to peak out from behind stuff along with Crouch, Crawl, walk, Run and Jump.

I myself use 8 function keys, Number keys 1 through 7, 13 letter keys, along with 6 mouse buttons to play STALKER. If you can get all that on a game pad....then you would be Da Man!!

Stalker is first and foremost a FPS but it has heavy RPG elements......for example you have to eat, sleep, repair weapons, armor level ups etc..

Best Mods.....
The Complete Mod pumps up the graphics and A.I.

Priobi Story Mod adds a whole new 20 hour adventure to STALKER

Have you ever played with AMK or Narodnaya Solyanka? If not, you can't call yourself a STALKER fan.

Although the late 2000s Turok wasn't my favorite, I would love a new entry. Open world survival with shotguns and dinosaurs. Not sure how we'd get the fusion cannon, but that would be pretty sweet too.

Lol

All of these games are pretty much universally praised. Outside of Timeshift I literally own all of these.

Venoxn4g673d ago (Edited 673d ago )

XIII, The Darkness 2, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, Timesplitters: future perfect, Bulletstorm are awesome games

I played them all, they are all good in their own way
I used to be obsessed with FPS games
