I'm one of those fortunate ones who doesn't appear to have any bugs - and I have to say, I absolutely love this game. There are a few points that could be better - Factions Wars could be improved, but I'm really fond of this game. Items are much cheaper than before as well - I could finally get myself a decent rifle at the start of the game.
Does anyone share my view? So far, I've seen a lot of negativity, and not a lot of praise.
I'll be writing a review once I've completed it.
I feel quite the same. I have had no CTD's so far! There are a few issues you might encounter later on where quests get 'broken' - I had difficulty getting into a certain area due to various things.
Still, they should all be easily fixed with a patch or two.
My main gripes are the faction wars - the player should have greater warning about when missions are going on to actually assist in them, and the reinforcements should arrive more promptly when you complete take and hold missions. Also there is a minor annoyance about weapon upgrades. Get a weapon with upgrades, put it in a stash then quicksave/quickload. Hey presto, the upgrades have magically disappeared!
Other than that, it is really good. Maybe it does not have the same 'feeling' as the first, but then again it is not so new. I do like it on the whole, I just hope for a patch soon to solve a few little script issues.
I was thinking.... What if Clear Sky is a real "prequel" to some much larger game? WHat if they are just testing what could be done? :confused: Maybe my child will play "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Genesis" one day and it will have everything that we all dreamed about ! Who knows? Altough it be hard for my child to get to the computer if the Genesis would come out, since i would bunker myself 10feet below ground and play for the whole time... Some archeologists would find me in the future (my skeleton in 3200 AD) and they would call it "homo gamicus bunkericus" type of evolutioned man.:lol:
I didn't have any CTD's either til I started making my way around in Dark Valley. After clearing Swamp, Cordon and Garbage. Now it CTD no matter what after about 30 secs. into my quicksave game. Now I have no choice but to start over. F**kin BLAH! It's like ShOC all over again, NOOOO! :(
A wise man, a long time ago before the construction of the chinese wall, said; "Never, never, and i mean, never rely on only one savegame. Games are like women - they tend to f... up some stuff pretty badly. And they will f... up your savegames, sooner or later. It is the astral law of gaming, and it is inevitable..."
