Have you ever dreamt about playing the old, forgotten S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ? Not the compromised (but still good) version that was released in 2007, but the version that was showcased in the breathtaking screenshots of 2002? Well thanks to Dez0wave, who have been tinkering with an 2004 Alpha build that was released to the public in 2009, you can now play the original vision in all it’s glory, with some new tweaks and graphical improvements for the modern day.
Dezowave has done an excellent job in updating and renovating the Lost Alpha, staying as true to the source material as possible, but upgrading the visuals. expanding levels and adding a few new features to stop it from feeling and looking like a 10 year old game. It features 30 levels instead of 18, with a parallel story which happens in the same time as SoC and sometimes overlaps with some of the old events. There are also plenty of side quests, simple ones and also complex ones like in CoP.
It’s an impressive feat that Desowave has managed to do so much with an old, abandoned build from 10 years ago, the skill and passion that has gone into it is fantastic. A must for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans.
