    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.

    In case someone was disappointed by the lack of freedom in The Medium, let it be known that Chernobylite brings much more leeway in terms of gameplay, while offering equally pretty graphics and dark atmosphere. Until the second S.T.A.L.K.E.R. arrives, there is no better game for visiting Chernobyl.

    Bizarre but beautiful indeed, Chernobylite is an amalgamation of various genres in one captivating game that you wouldn’t think could pull it off as well as it does. Its missions offer much of the same over the time and its combat could use some work, but its world gives you enough diverse events, objectives, and live challenges that keep you thinking ahead. Plus, add to that its 3D scanned world of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and you get an ambitious game that blends fiction with reality and offers you an experience unlike any other.

    Chernobylite is a great survival game with a solid sci-fi story that is definitely above what we’re used to find in similar games, although it also falls shorts in some aspects by trying to do more than it should.

    With a combination of multiple features and mechanics from different genres, as well as a setting that's steeped in mystery, Chernobylite attempts to be the jack-of-all-trades. Unfortunately, a mediocre combat system, repetitive mission structure, and dull gameplay loop lead to questionable results.

    Chernobylite is not gonna make up for the lack of the new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game in your life, but even so it's a good enough title to dive into before the release of the next GSC Game World project.

    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.

    Great game. Immersion at the highest level. It's very addictive if you only spend a few hours on it. Definitely for the emotionally mature player.

Yes, the animations, story, gameplay, sound and text localization (into Russian) are not ideal, but for the familiar voices from Stalker and Metro from me a separate thanks. The composer hit the top ten, the soundtrack is memorable. There is good support from Ansel. Expand

    Good graphics. Horrible mechanics. Good sound. Horrible game. Uninstalled after the first lightening strike gave me a gun and the second one landed me in Pripyat to be presented with a horrible intro on how to use the gun and avoid being hit.

    If I had paid for it I would be refunding it immediately.
