    While ostensibly a first-person RPG, Chernobylite surprises with its fun base-building and personnel management mechanics. Creepy, weird, and unique, Chernobylite offers a great story and interesting combat scenarios—even if the gunplay is a bit glitchy. An unconventionally unique game in a very cool setting, Chernobylite is recommended for those looking for something a bit different.

    Chernobylite combines some cool ideas and implements them in a way that complements the story it wants to tell. Several issues stand in its way, with potential save corruption acting as the biggest road block. Once that issue gets patched out, the core experience will offer up something unique, even if many of its gameplay elements lack depth.

    Chernobylite appears to have it all: an intriguing storyline, a phenomenal world that feels authentic and begs to be explored, and exciting survival horror gameplay. Technically, it's a mess though, with an inconsistent framerate, disappointing graphics and - worst of all - a huge gamebreaking bug that deletes your progress. What a waste...

    Chernobylite is an enjoyable little loot n’ shooter sadly torpedoed by technical issues for the PS4 version. It’s such a shame that the intriguing storyline and the compulsive scavenging fun is completely ruined by bugs. I was looking forward to uncovering the dark mysteries lurking within Pripyat, but until the game-breaking errors are fixed, they will have to remain hidden.

    An absolutely missed opportunity to create something out of this fascinating world of chernobyl.
    The game is technically at the level of 2005. They conceived the whole zone beautifully realistically, but that's the only thing that worked.
    The game has almost no story, the only thing you do is get out of the base on absolutely boring loot quests, round and round stealth with stupid AI. Amateurism comes out of it, sorry. I know it's a game from a smaller team and it's at a lower price. But this is real waste. I give 3/10 due to the graphic design of the zone.

    Warning - Do not buy this game on PS4 consoles at this time.

    Chernobylite would be a lovely game were it not for the data corrupting issues that forced me into safe mode on my PS4 and the game progress ending bug that doesn’t allow you to progress after a certain point.

    The game would be worth a play we’re it not for the absolute dismal state it’s in currently, don’t chance breaking your PS4 with this abysmal port, just wait until you see it’s been fixed.

I got to day 23 and the game corrupted all my saves, so be on the lookout for that if you plan to play on PS4. Good mix of Fallout, the Forest and Control. In the beginning, I had 15 save slots, but as I progressed, it narrowed down to only 4 slots. They were all corrupted, so 30 hours were wasted. Was ready to see an "ending" Expand
