I never played long enough to find out, got sick of reloading and having to do the same thing again and again.

I still haven't gotten around to Call of Pripyat.CoP was the best one. Clear Sky had a failed factions idea that they never updated and made for a poor game. CoP introduction was brutal. It drops you off with a GLFU and you have to get on with it with an unforgiving learning curve. Once you get past that it's satisfying though. Really pissed the brand and code for 2 got caught in development hell. We'll never see another.

The atmosphere later in SoC is absolutely brilliant, totally blasts away the boring and awkward start in the Cordon.

I would recommend playing with the Complete Mod http://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-complete-2009 it makes a big difference, to start with the game looks a lot better and it fixes quite a few bugs etc...
Regarding difficulty, just play it slow and careful for the first few hours and once you pick up a few bits of gear you will be a lot better off, though there is a good amount of enjoyment from the constant feeling of vulnerability. In the end I agrroed the army base near the village you start in and picked the soldiers off one by one. In the end I was able to get some decent equipment that way. Also yes there is some hidden armour in that same starter village if you want a boost.

Ed. NVM see it is. Time to start rooting through cupboards.
Ed2. What do I need? just the complete Gear pack?

So until tonight there is little point in trying to wander around aimlessly completely unarmed I'm just a sitting target.
