The independently executable addon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat puts you in an unfamiliar role. For the first time, GSC Game World’s first-person shooter does not play a stalker, but a secret agent of the Ukrainian government. One thing has not changed: the restricted zone around the radioactive Chernobyl is also teeming with dangers in Call of Pripyat; Those who do not exercise the necessary caution bless the time.
There are plenty of opportunities to do so, like sneaking through a horde of sleeping bloodsuckers with our stalker colleague Grouse. Let’s make noise, we’re dead. If a shot breaks loose, we’re dead. But are not we already? Because even if we do not catch the bloodsuckers, then maybe the Snork. Or bandits. Or we pass in the next radioactive emission. Or in an anomaly.
Light at the end of the tunnel. We re-enter the safe surface with Grouse, a stalker, the bloodsuckers are behind us. There are too many to extinguish by force of arms. But we could flood the basement with poison gas via the air conditioning. Good idea. We go in search of gas and helicopters. Call of Pripyat begins two weeks after the events of Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. The stalker Strelok has disabled the brainwrath, whereupon the remaining stalker and factions have invaded the area around the reactor.
The government is also watching and wants to get the situation under its control. She sends five helicopters with detailed maps of the anomalies in the zone. Nevertheless, all five are lost. We should now disguised as stalker find the reason for the failure of the mission. We explore three completely new areas, none of which we know from the two predecessors. On the one hand there is Zaton, the marshy former riverbed of the Pripyat (the river, not the city), where rusty barges are lying on the ground and docking facilities are orphaned. Then the industrial area around the Jupiter factory. And finally the eastern part of Pripyat (this time we mean the city) with its civilian facilities like kindergarten, hospital or library.
That sounds more varied than it actually is. So the wetlands of Zaton and the Jupiter area differ only marginally, and the eastern Pripyats essentially consists only of prefabricated buildings in the style Halle-Neustadts before 1989. This is no comparison to the variety of predecessors. We hear in the belly of the shipwreck Skadowsk, which serves as a shelter for stalkers and bandits, for larger poison gas supplies. Finally, we get a tip. On a bridge over the Pripyat riverbed are the remains of a military convoy. There should be something to find. We leave immediately. Out in the wilderness, our eye enjoys the tremendous foresight, the lush vegetation, the beautiful weather and lighting effects, and the imposing industrial facilities that have been blustering since 1986.
First rotting phenomena but also shows the graphics. Many objects, especially plants, pop up unpleasantly late in the picture, and close up some textures fade away. Also the animation quality, which has never been a special strength of the series, lags in the truest sense of the word current titles such as Prince of Persia or Mirror’s Edge. Human figures change their attitude, sometimes leaps and bounds, and the animals lurch through the landscape rather than running smoothly.
Even the AI of human opponents and fellow combatants sometimes fails, especially when space becomes tight. Then the AI likes to shoot into the wall, get lost in the wrong room or freeze right away. But if the AI works, which it does in most cases, it works well. The enemies then independently seek cover, deliberately throw grenades or try to fall into your back. Elsewhere, Call of Pripyat, in contrast to the serial tradition, is surprisingly free from serious bugs. Crashes or crashed scores we have not experienced in the test.
