I got into the S.T.A.L.K.E.R beta, been playing that. It is wicked fun, decent graphics, and extremely amazing sound. Think FEAR sound. You hear eery shrilling screams in the distance, the crack of thunder, the gust of wind from a mini tornadoe that is wripping apart other players. The gun sounds are amazing as well. Very eery envirionment. Sounds great on my DT770/80.
9/10 for the game itself.
For the stability. 1/10. LOL, it has crashed a few times on me already. And when it rains I get alot of graphics artifacts. Plus theres some weird issue with the ctrl button acting like caps lock. So yeah, theres a few issues with it. But such is life with a beta.

Looking forward to FFXII being released over in the UK, we get screwed every time.
SOTC Is an amazing fantastic game. A great (sort of) sequal to ICO. I thought both games were masterful artpieces (I know people dont think of video games as art, but these games definately fit the bill). ICO is the sort of game that doesnt make you angry when you lose. Its sort of a relaxing, peaceful puzzle game. I loved hearing the ocean and birds and everything whilst running from shadow monsters. I absolutely love this game.
