GameSpot had a chance to take a look at S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl:
Survival gameplay and first-person action will blend together in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, the long-awaited game from THQ and GSC Game World. When it finally ships next month, S.T.A.L.KE.R. will have two halves. There's the ambitious single-player game that will put you in the midst of the exclusion zone that surrounds the infamous Chernobyl nuclear reactor. Then there's the multiplayer game that will let you run-and-gun online with and against other players.
