Got it the 12, installed and applied latest patch and have put about 10 hours in it and I like it A LOT. In SoC I never had ANY problem at all with the game and yet it is the same for CS. So yes you read about some people having problem but not too often about people having no problem at all and I wante to point that out.
I have yet to read a review that like me have not experienced a problem but who they are aware of some problem. Every article just seems to do cut and paste from each others. Anyway.
Playing it DX9 all settings maxed 1280x1024 and it's perfect. I wish I was able to play it DX for 2 additional effect but just like SoC I will explore the zone more than once so in a few months maybe I will have the chance to enjoy DX10 extras.
Harder than SoC but somewhat funnier in the way it is, maybe, more realistic. It's no fun when you run in like a God and just kill everything. It's different and will make you play differently by beging more careful and thinking more how you will get closer, etc.
I'm not a huge player. being limited in time I carefully choose what I buy and both S.T.A.L.K.E.R. are the only games that give me shivers, truely! I really enjoy when the evening come, children are n the bed and then I start S.T.A.L.K.E.R. for 2-3 hours in the dark with headphones. Excellent experience.
I only hope there will be a 3rd one.
