EDIT: 100 posts.
not sure I will get it, since it had bad comments @ unconscious: pfuh, ONLY 100 posts me ownz your ass! =p ;)
Im not getting it, the Graphics of the first stalker was depressing, they were so bad. I'll try a demo first, if the graphics have improved and stuff actually looks semi belivable I may get it :/
the graphics HAVE improvet considerably, but i wouldnt recommend buying the game until they've released a few patches i was PIST AS HELL during the first 2 gameplay hours due to HORRIBLE PERFORMANCE. for some reason mornings are laggy as hell on my system (7-14 fps) though daytime and nights is fine. playing on enhanced full dynamic lightning all settings to high. the game gives me THE IMPRESSION OF A BETA and was a HUGE disapointment at first. it's just as buggy and unfinished as STALKER:SHOC when it was first released. i was so pissed at gsc at first. still am, but after a 6 hours of gameplay it's quite okay (it's awesome), except for the constant ctds and the performance issues during mornings. the new upgrading system is very exciting and money is a bit harder to come by. the fights are also lot harder. faction wars are constant and seem very dynamic. but i cant recommend buying this game.. i just cant. wait till the patches and graphic mods are out to enhance it to its true level. if you are a true geek as myself and cant wait another second, then just be ready to keep alot of saved games (even though that might not help, i had one ctd that f-uped all my saved games, heard that others have had this problem to). also alot of quest bugs.. there's more, alot more, alot more and alot more. so brace yourself for a moodswinging weekend. a bit like watching star wars episode III, it's an awesome experience, but it still kinda sucks balls
Clear Sky was released upon the 22nd August 2008 in Russia, with a patch being available at release (Patch version 1.05 for the Russian version, said to be identical to the International version 1.01 patch). It was soon after reported, on the GSC-gaming official forum among other places, that both the unpatched and patched russian version suffered from severe stability issues. These included Crashes to Desktop (CtD), bugs that made the game unplayable and a general poor perfomance of the game even on high end systems.
I guess you wern't joking... FAIL GAME! And no, don't even try telling me graphics are good... The model detail reminds me of Quake I, and Im not joking, his arm is shocking!
You shouldn't judge a game by its graphics only. A game can have amazing graphics but shit gameplay. On the other hand the graphics can be decent or not so good but have nice gameplay etc. Games are not just about graphics. Don't judge a book by its cover.
For example look at doom 2 for all those fps fans. very shit graphics (well good back in the day) but lots of people still play it today me being one of them.

...and me being another. ;)
Graphics do seem to look somewhat worse than the original though. Has that screenshot been tampered with? What quality level?
