Stalker Online was created very difficult and, rather, contrary to external circumstances. The history of the creation of the project could have been completely filmed, as it is a muddy and gloomy situation with incredible plot twists. In the process, the game split into 2 parts: the project itself and a separate game ー sZone. Both games are multiplayer online games with a very similar storyline. The creation was accompanied by constant accusations from both sides, and even criminal cases were initiated.
If you skim through the gameplay and plot of this online game, it can be called a classic shooter. But the creators decided to add a multiplayer online format and an RPG story to it. Thoughtful quests allow you to explore the Exclusion Zone and advance your understanding of the game. At the same time, quests are not of a primitive level: for example, shoot all mutated animals within sight. Or kill all the stalkers who play online with you, although you can kill other players here. Especially if you assemble a team in advance and purposefully prepare for skirmishes. Groupings can be created not only by searching the sector, but also by capturing premises ー houses in villages, factories, hospitals. They will not only have to be searched, but cleaned from a large number of anomalies and rare mutants ー so it may seem like a boring and dreary task for those who do not like shooters.
In Stalker, you can also “rob caravans” ー attack convoys of trucks (by the way, mostly Urals and UAZs) and take all the interesting resources from there.
Of course, you can immediately name the shortcomings of this online game. My main gripe is with the graphics, they look quite primitive by today's standards, unless you're a fan of retro, of course. Effects and character rendering need to be improved. The content and story is also a little monotonous, in order to keep the players ー it needs to be improved. MMO Stalker Online looks almost as harsh as the post-apocalyptic universe of the same name. But this is more of a disadvantage than an undeniable advantage.MMO Stalker Online looks almost as harsh as the post-apocalyptic universe of the same name.

Stalker Online ー is an MMO set in a world familiar to fans. Universe “Stalker” ー post-apocalypse, in which there are many recognizable features and “easter eggs” for the fans. The game allows you to immerse yourself in the famous Exclusion Zone, meet (and not always survive) anomalies and mutants. The struggle in the world is not only for resources, but also for the search for artifacts in the Zone.
