Chernobylite had flaws during early access but its potential is now fully realized

My assessment of Chernobylite during early access is that it had flaws but had great potential. Has developer The Farm 51 fully realized this potential? Short answer: Yes. Yes, indeed.

Chernobylite has been in early access for over a year and recently got its 1.0 release. I previewed the game during its early access phase in March of last year and noted that, while it had potential, there were obvious shortcomings. Now that the game has had more time to mature, I jumped in again to see what changed and what didn't.
