Default S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

Welcome to your next post-apocalyptic adventure. Taken place after the Chernobyl power plant disaster, this game effectively mixes the FPS and RPG genre together, and does so quite well.

Good review. I have been playing through the game for a while and it's difficult at times but a decent game none the less.

Is anyone else thinking 'Fallout 3'?

This whole concept sounds like a FPS adaptation of the Fallout series, maybe with a little less humor. I thought it was just an FPS until I read the review.

I guess I haven't played enough Fallout to understand the relation. To be honest, I also thought it was just an FPS until I played it, heh. I went strictly by the screenshots.
