Just started playing this game myself. Got as far as when you reach the next station together with that guy called "Bourbon". My main complaints so far are, the FOV, and the gun play. I really don't understand why almost all game developers lately insist on using a low FOV for their games and then not giving you the option to change it. As it is right now, it's way to low. It feels like you're walking around with binoculars on, and it honestly makes my eyes and head hurt. it might look ok if you're sitting on a couch a few feet away, but I'm using a PC damn it! It should be for 4:3 screens 90 FOV, and for widescreen 16:9 like mine, 120 FOV. Th gun play... So far all the weapons are horribly inaccurate and ammo is too sparse. There's a thin line between building tension, and plain old frustration. In one part while following Bourbon, I got lost in a series of tunnels, and had to fight (by myself) over a dozen of those four legged mutants. Used up all my ammo, and had to kill every last one of them with my knife... On the bright side, I like this a lot more then Stalker, the graphics are quite good, and it does manage to create atmosphere. So overall this is the type of game I'll play once from start to finish for the story/atmosphere, and never touch it afterwards.
