Windows 7: S.t.a.l.k.e.r

ATM STEAM has a halloween sale.

STALKER bundle for $9.99.
Which includes 2 games: Shadow of Chernobyl & Call of Pripyat

So Im curious, is it worth getting them, or do these games have serious issues with Win 7 x64.

And No, I have not played either of them so it would be a totally new game for me (I know its been around awhile )

I would think at $10 for both games its probably worth it, but was just curious on everyones thoughts on these 2 games.

I've seen lots of threads complaining it doesn't work properly under Win7 x64, so just curious what everyones experiences have been with these 2 games.

Thanks.

I have Call of Pripyat and it runs very smooth (I have not had a crash or glitch once in about 10 hours of gameplay). It's a very good game and as yo said it is definitely worth it at that price.

Steam had a sale like this in August 2 STALKER games for like 10 bucks. Excellent Deal ! I jumped right at it ! I haven't played them yet though...too many other games at the moment

The game has serious issues everywhere.

Anyways.... if you read my post here.... Discuss Fallout: New Vegas you know how I feel

The bugs and game play drove me away so I never finished it, and thus removed it from my system. There are lots of mods but I bever tried any of them since again, couldn't get past bugs. Anyways not sure how the mods will play on the Steam version.

BTW I tried the game on both Vista 32 and 64-bit Ultimate. Still major issues. Haven't tried it since moving to 7.

Good looking game... graphics wise. Since I still have my disk I might give it another try someday...

Thanks everyone.

Hmm... might go ahead and give it a try.

At 10 bucks, even if just 1 of the 2 runs well it would likely be worth it.
Might even get lucky and/or its been patched ..

There were numerous patches released for the first game so I'm sure steam will have it patched up to date.

SoC will crash a lot of the time on win 7 64. Overall I loved CoP. So many different ways to go thru it.

SoC has a time limit on many of the missions & CoP does not, giving you a varied approach as to what to do next.

Look out for the false ending with SoC.

I played both with no patches.

They're both great games, also 'Clear Sky', the standalone expansion of SoC.

More than anything, the AI is an absolutetly brilliant design that should be experienced by any gamer. The system is called A-Life, and it basically gets better with each game.

The order of release is Shadow of Chernobyl - Clear Sky - Call of Pripyat.

Also they all work great with Windows 7, in fact Call of Pripyat fully supports DirectX 11, with nice Tessellation and Compute Shader 5.

Shadow of Chernobyl - Best story, and scariest
Clear Sky - Best action, role playing elements, awesome faction wars
Call of Pripyat - Best A-Life to date, awesome graphics(on a good rig) and best mission system

The official forum, great people here and 'tons' of mods, be sure to check out the S.M.R.T.E.R. mods for each game after beating them vanilla-
