Slight repetition can't diminish the incredible atmoshpere of Farm 51's post-apocalyptic survival game.

An ambitious and atmospheric adventure undercut by some simplistic mechanics.

A game with some interesting ideas and concepts, that sometimes manage to provide meaningful content to the players but are too often obscure by the deeply repetitive nature of gameplay and quest design.

Fans of hardcore survival games might find Chernobylite a little too easy-going, while horror aficionados may not be horrified enough. But if you're looking for a more balanced experience with a compelling world and a lot of varied mechanics, Chernobylite is well worth investigating.

Chernobylite's trifecta of gun combat, survival, and base management serves the game's unique narrative system. With more features comes more shortcomings, but nothing drastic enough to take away from an otherwise compelling experience.

Chernobylite's great survival horror gameplay, top-notch atmosphere, and excellent audiovisual presentation make it a must-play title for any fan of games like STALKER.

Chernobylite is a complete game that comes in different aspects of gameplay and still offers good value for money. If the tactical part with management of the base and companions is pleasant, as is the infiltration, the fights are nevertheless somewhat behind, especially because of the very dark graphics making it difficult to locate the enemies. The latter are however well detailed and participate in the successful atmosphere of the app, enhanced by the soundtrack.

Chernobylite certainly has ambitions beyond being a rote shooter and although not everything meshes and the gears of its systems sometimes grind, the setting feels authentically haunted and foreboding. There’s a lot going on in Chernobylite, and sometimes the melancholic love story at the center gets buried under unnecessary game play complications, tepid combat or shifts of tone. In other words, it’s all still a bit messy but interesting and worth playing for shooter, RPG or horror fans, especially those fascinated by this particular moment in modern history.

Chernobylite is not gonna make up for the lack of the new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game in your life, but even so it's a good enough title to dive into before the release of the next GSC Game World project.

Chernobylite is an interesting game, full of interesting ideas and with a good amount of content to offer; unless you go straight for the ending, it will entertain you for a good twenty hours. It's not perfect: the AI isn't brilliant, the horror atmosphere isn't quite there, and there's some repetetiveness. But if you're looking for something to satiate your hunger for trips in the Exclusion Zone, Chernobylite is a solid choice.
