Lost Alpha is a stand alone game, so if you don't have S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl than that's okay because you don't need it to play Lost Alpha. Lost Alpha is what Shadow of Chernobyl should have been even though both took many years to be made, even though it was and still is a great game on its own.
The 2nd patch for it is now out so it runs alot better now and you may have trouble installing the four main parts, but if you like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game as much as I do then it is worth it.
Lost Alpha is a great addition to what is a great game series. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games (SoC, Clear Sky, Call of Pripyat, and now Lost Alpha) is tired with the Mass Effect games as my favorite game series ever.

SoC was a pretty awesome game, just missing some pretty key things that Clear Sky introduced. Just too bad CS was a buggy f'n mess. Based on that manapool review, it sounds like this mod is a pretty buggy mess as well. I do miss playing Stalker though... --- http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/1096/austinx.png http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/1108/1wyd.png

The new patch that just came out fixes just about all the bugs and issues, and that review is months old but the newest one out. Lost Alpha is a standalone not a mod, it is basically a game by itself. --- Xbox360/One + PS3/4 + Wii U + PC = Awesomeness!!!
I like Stalker. I just don't trust this one patch will improve a whole lot. Do the graphic sliders actually work now? --- pon pon way way way ponpon way pon way pon pon, way way ponponpon way way pon way pon way way.
Lost alpha is unplayable for me. I don't know why but i can barely break 30 fps.... Which is a cardinal sin for shooters in my opinion. I know it's a mod.... But my gtx 680 shouldn't be having problems... Even with the last patch.
This is what is in my pc... 3.4GHz i7-2600 cpu, 8GB of RAM, and HD6770 w/1GB RAM. With that I should get more than 18fps and 44fps with Lost Alpha, or is my video card not powerful enough? --- Xbox360/One + PS3/4 + Wii U + PC = Awesomeness!!!
