STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl review

Meet and greet the shooter that came in from the cold

Here’s the big question though - after so many years (six by our count) and so much strife, is the game finished? Well yes, in as much as it’s a full game without too many glitches (you can expect a patch). On top of that, it’s an entirely enjoyable experience, so in that sense, yes, it’s finished.

This isn’t to say, however, that you can’t see the loose threads. On the map screen for example, there are various areas that were clearly once in contention for inclusion but met the vicious scissors of fate: you’ll find yourself leaving one area through a creaky gate and magically entering the next zone through a road tunnel.
