Love the difficulty! It's more realistic to have to take cover to avoid getting shot so that you don't bleed to death.

While the game features will be familiar to anyone who has played STALKER SoC, the added functionality of the player's PDA and the ability to modify weapons and armour are great improvements over the original game.
But for me, the real treat was finding out how easy it is to die in this game.
One has to carefully gauge the surroundings and estimate enemy strength before choosing whether to attack or not, and how to go about attacking. Catching a bullet not only depletes health, but it causes bleeding that has to be tended to by using health kits or bandages. If you don't stop the bleeding, your health continues to drop until you bleed to death. This puts extra emphasis on avoiding enemy fire by choosing the best cover and hitting back with long-range weapons that can outreach those of the enemy.
All in all, this leads to an incredibly addictive experience where the improved graphics play a wonderful side note to the duck and cover of tactical play.
This one is going to keep me awake for many nights!
