Comment: I"ve been waiting for this game for about 8 years, and I don"t think it disappointed, much...

It is definitely more of an RPG, than an FPS. VATS is the in-game targeting system which allows you to pause combat and queue up attacks. You can target different body parts and characters, based on the amount of action points you have and the amount needed to use the weapon you have. For instance, I could fire about 15 rounds (in 3 shot bursts) from an assault rifle, or two shots from a sniper rifle. Once spent action points slowly recharge. Hitting different body parts has different effects, like slowing a target by crippling its leg, or breaking their weapon by targeting it specifically. The chance to hit parts differs by the size and vantage point.

However, outside of VATS, it becomes an FPS again and you can choose to fight, run, or hide. Hiding is fun, because if you do it right, you get a critical strike when attacking while hidden. Surprising the enemy is always fun! One thing that might annoy FPS fans is that bullets seem to snap to the target and body parts rather than flying randomly. It"s a result of the RPG, but it just takes some getting used to. Overall, because of the positional damage, I think it"s worth it.

Content is great, there are plenty of missions, and conversations to be had, most/all (I can"t remember) of which are voiced over, and you can find everything from a bent tin can, to naughty nightware, to iguana on a stick as items. The one thing that I found was missing though was the item descriptions. My favorite from FO 1 & 2 was the large pipe wrench, which was something like "Mechanics use these, to hurt people". Similar dark humor would have been great, but oh well...

Finally, the leveling system is very much like FO 1 & 2, you have 1-10 attributes like strength and agility, and 1-100 skills like lock pick, small guns, and sneak. You also get special perks, one being cannibal, which allows you to gain health from corpses at the price of karma, another being solar powered, which gives you a strength bonus in the sun and at the same time slowly replenishes health. However, the levels cap at 20. I guess I wouldn"t have minded it so much had I known about it, but I found it gave me a reason to get on with the main quest. I didn"t love the cap, but I saw the reason for it...

All in all, I think FO3 was great, and I"m hoping for a 4 sometime soon!
