S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Still Stalking

The STALKER Twitter Feed offers a vague status report on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the first-person shooter sequel with the uncertain future. Word is: "There are legal reasons why we have not made an 'official' statement. But Stalker 2 development continues." Thanks VG247.

I can agree with the the better graphics, narrative and production values but the rest? Not so much. Metro 2033 definitely did not run better than STALKER. It ran okay in the subways but the framerate took a huge dive when you were out on the surface.
The original STALKER was a dog and the DX10 features in Clear Sky brought it to a grind. Call Of Pripyat offered good performance, partly because of DX11 optimisations and party because hardware had progressed. Even when it ran well the game was plagued by random hitches. Metro 2033 meanwhile ran very well, except when DOF was enabled (which crippled even the top systems). Perhaps I should have said it scaled better rather than performed better, as I had decent hardware but couldn't get Clear Sky to perform well (especially in the early sections) with any settings, whereas Metro 2033 was great with DX11 features disabled.

The AI in Metro 2033 was pretty retarded. Enemies would just find a cover point and sit there all day. In STALKER, enemies were constantly maneuvering around you and they'd often flank you if you stayed in the same spot. I've never played any game where the AI was as unpredictable as in STALKER's. Then you had the unique animal/monster behavior, like the blind dogs who only attack in packs.
While Clear Sky had some pretty decent AI interactions at times - proper flanking, good teamwork - the series was plagued by glitches, like getting stuck in walls, clipping into each other, sliding your character out the way if they happened to walk towards you, etc. I didn't come across that with Metro 2033.
