At the same time though even in its post-patch state Clear Sky still has flaws. Building a game to be difficult and realistic is one thing, but it sometimes feels like the game is going out of its way to be annoying. The interface is clunky and poorly designed, full of inconsistencies and hassles. Having to look away from your crosshair constantly to see if you’re bleeding or being irradiated is a real pain.
Missions that constantly stack up are another thing that really make Clear Sky annoying in the long run and every time you enter an area you can expect to be swamped with calls for help from your friends in the vicinity. Then you have to cope with them continuing to plead with you, updating you on their plight using the same five or six lines of dialogue over and over.
