Have had my eye on this for a while. From what I have read it isn't Stalker-ish. It's not a sandbox or an action/rpg. This is a story driven fps. So although it has some similar atmosphere to Stalker I would say it's closer to something like Cryostasis. At least as far as I can tell from what's been written about it.

Definitely interested in this but will wait a bit to buy it me thinks. Let the reviews and user scores accumulate for a bit. Maybe there'll be a demo?

Ho man! This game looks perfect for our new Youtube segment!

Thanks for the heads up - I had never even heard of it before.

I've been looking forward to this one since it was first revealed to the public. Can't wait.

Watching the gameplay video it looks like the AI is pretty dumb.

And if those reqs are close to what will be needed, especially if it is a TWIMTBP game I won't be touching it.

Ya heard about this a while ago, watched one of the vids. Looks like it COULD be alright, but I'll have to wait for the finished product and all the reviews/feedback before I think about it though.

Some FPS's.
And some impressions from someone with a i7 @3.8 and a GTX295
Quote:
I disabled AA and it's averaging about 25-30 FPS but in some areas it's jumping up to 90 FPS.
So I guess that with my rig I'm doomed in DX11.

Yup this is the new unoptimized Crysis. Like how the recommend graphics card is one that isn't even out yet. This looks like it could be a fun game.
