    I've only played the original STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl. Initially, I was impressed and let down, all at the same time.

    Do the sequels get better?

    I've also heard there is a 'Complete' modification for one of the games that vastly improves the quality.

    Can anyone vouch for the series of games? Or should I just buy this anyway, because it's a steal? :)

    FAB games. There is a "complete" mod for all 3 games in the series. I have only completed SOC but am fairly far into Call of Pripyat and it's pretty much more of the same thing but more refined. I think clear sky was supposed to be the weak link in the series but for this price go for it.

    Bit of a 'Marmite' series imo. I got a little bored tbh but probably didnt give it enough time. The mod is a must if you decide to give it a go. For the cash its worth a gamble, you dont get a lot for a fiver these days and you might just love it.

    Tell that to the people who paid a penny for the Indie Bundles! :eek:

    I paid £10 for the HIB #3 (Introversion Bundle) and £6.66 for the HIB #4...
    because I like supporting developers + charity :thumbsup:

    But there is plenty of stupidly cheap content on Steam at times, I love their sales!
