    Chernobylite is special. If you enjoy RPGs that feature things like crafting, base building, team management, and heists, the ambitious Chernobylite is one that you won’t want to miss.

    Chernobylite offers a deep survival game experience that offers elements of sci-fi, horror and RPG. It’s hard to call this a survival horror title, but all the management aspects and the branching storylines will provide fans of the survival genre plenty to enjoy. There are only a handful of areas to go to and while they’re decent sized, enemies tend to respawn in the same location upon returning to the location. The atmosphere could have gone a different direction, but the visuals and environments are undeniably effective. The visual design in the portals in particular are something to marvel at. With a structured base of a game with varying options to keep players coming back, Chernobylite is worth checking out.

    The choices made by Igor during his journey truly matter, and despite some rough edges and certain aspects of the experience feeling a bit underdeveloped, I loved my time with Chernobylite and would recommend spending time with Igor and his crew to anyone.

    An interesting return to The Zone and a perfect game to help you survive the wait for Stalker 2. Chernobylite is atmospheric, intriguing, sometimes beautiful, but also needlessly bloated with distracting elements that force you to deal with unimportant or repetitive stuff. It has its issues, but first and foremost it’s an original game with an engaging story and I do recommend it. [10/2021, p.24]

    Chernobylite mixes up different genres and tells a compelling spy-story tied to the infamous Chernobyl disaster. However, It needs a post-launch balancing and less repetitive missions.

    Chernobylite's divergent paths bolster its replayability but its inconsistencies in other areas drag down the experience.

    Despite the flaws, something about Chernobylite feels like it's primed to enjoy cult classic status. Troubled but daring games are often the subject of smaller but passionate fanbases, and Chernobylite is nothing is not daring. Several of those gambles don't payout in the end, but the journey is always a weird one, even if not always an exciting one.

    "Not great, not terrible" - haha, just kidding :) It's really great game. Chernobyl exclusion zone has never looked better in PC game and I'm"Not great, not terrible" - haha, just kidding :) It's really great game. Chernobyl exclusion zone has never looked better in PC game and I'm sure that will be even better at next gen consoles. Additionally: fantastic audio, great atmosphere and story. But remember: it's not a S.T.A.L.K.E.R ! It's new, separate brand that is just as worth playing. Expand

    Boring, amateurish and boasting possibly the worst 15 minutes initial gameplay of any game in recent times, do yourself a favor and buyBoring, amateurish and boasting possibly the worst 15 minutes initial gameplay of any game in recent times, do yourself a favor and buy something else. This isn't stalker, its a cynical exploitation of the stalker fanboi movement, many of whom are trying to boost the score of a game that will sink without trace. Expand
