First of all this is far more unplayable than SoC was when it came out, atleast you could play SoC but this, most of the quest are buggy (you cant return them after completing) (capture quests gets cancelled everytime) and i can only play 10 min then i get crash to my desktop without error, then stalkers was neutral to me, and i went from cordon to dark valley, then they all was suddenly enemy i mean what the fuck is this
Have you patched up? I play in 1.03 and I get next to no crashes. It's very playable for me, no glitched missions so far and I'm quite happy with the game.
It also depends on... - Type of OS and computer specs. - Types of apps installed and running in the background. - Your methods of doing things in CS - Npc's action in CS when you aren't even seeing them. - How buggy your computer is and the condition of your computer
Basically, If you install tons of games and programs, and get some errors in some places for your pc, then chances are that you might encounter a crash.
