Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
At first I thought that this game wasn't that good. When I first got encumbered, I thought to myself "this isn't cool". The thing that really got to me was the aiming system. I tend to aim for the head, so if I go over to iron sight, I expect to hit the guy in the head. Bullet after bullet I would miss, and this annoyed me. So I dropped the game immediately.
Later on, I saw a friend of mine playing the game, and it looked like so much fun. I decided to give the game a try again, and this time, I got hooked to it. I completely and utterly love this game. The story is great, the freedom is outstanding, and the fact that you play as a Russian Character is even better.
The sets out in a place called the Zone. An area stretching from Power Plant Chernobyl, around the border of Ukraine to the town of Pripyat. Your character has no idea what is going on, and you are known as Marked One throughout the game (but there is a catch). Your main quest is to kill Strelok, though you have no idea who he is, or even where to find him.
You explore the Zone, and get clues from each town and encampment, and do missions to earn money, as well as weapons to eventually build yourself a good reputation.
The gameplay is survival horror, and you are bound to find all sorts of interesting and terrifying things in the Zone.
