Comment: ah, the big screwup of the follow franchise. i was never a BIG fan of the fallout series, but i played it quite a lot when i was younger and it certainly is a great game, both the fallout 1 and fallout 2, and then THIS happened. bethesda basically threw out the window everything that makes fallout fallout, and made a reskin of oblivion...and a bad one...

first of all, like every bethesda game, the story is about you roaming the huge not very interesting world they made. and ofc, this world just happens to be very poorly coded, resulting in more bugs than game. variation in the game is minimal, as it feels like there are 5 weapons at most compared to a GOOD fallout game, where there were more than 75 weapons. and to top it all of, there's the retarded scaling difficulty. fun thing about the old fallout games (and old games in general) is that no one was afraid to make you pay for going into a dangerous area unprepared. when i played fallout 3, i killed two guys in fucking powerarmors and a robot with a pipe...that's great job right there, cuz i was level 1, they were level 1 too so basically their armors and weapons made no difference. the story is recycled fallout 2 story with little thought put into it whatsoever. AI is horrible resulting in countless bugs and issues with quests and game in general.

all in all, this game is a disgrace to the fallout franchise. bethesda should stick to the only thing they know how to make - elder scrolls - and not ruin other cool games...

Comment: This game is action adventure. Graphic is good for it's year. The map is very big and there are lots of quests. There are many weapons ingame. There are a lot of kind of enemies such as mutants, orcs, humans, animals etc. I actually liked the game becouse it has a long campaign and it is different then other games. It's simillar to the games: Borderlands and Skyrim.

Comment: Fallout 3. A game that I am fascinated me and who has become a memory for life. Bethesda certainly succeeded this time. The whole gameplay in Fallout 3 is a bit like Oblivion. You can already see it the first moments you play the game. Luckily, it doesn't lower the game's score at all because of the incredibly well designed environments. In addition, you will feel at home if you've played Oblivion before. The story is very well made but I think that it's somewhat a bit too short. The game graphics are good, incredibly good. The sunshine dazzles you and then the world is incredibly well designed. There is no music in the game apart from your radio that you can play American classics while you shoot the head of a super mutant. There's sound effects and they are very good too.

Comment: Fallout3 is a fantastic retail game. To this day, Thanks to our beloved Modders out their. Modders are people just like you and I. They enjoy every aspect of Fallout3. They come up with their own codeing, and combineing the games original codeing using a few of Free trial game design programs, or Pay the bucks for these game design programs at PC retailer stores, and build Fallout3 the way they see it in their heads, and play the way they want to. Their own unique Fallout worlds.

An example of one of these software programs is Photshop. It has a 800 dollar price tag just for the program, that can be bought at any PC retailer. Sometimes you can find a street value of Photoshop, which will run between 5 to 6 hundred dollars.

There are thousands, upon thousands of different program modifications game files made by modders you can Download, and play Fallout3 in somebody elses eyes(Usually another gamers). This game as a great storyline to it, and several expansion packs for it.

So ontop of all the mods and the expansion packs. Fallout3 can keep any player busy for a long While. Bethesda Softwork is the company that created Fallout3. Although they do kinda neglect this amazeing game, thanks to them for making Fallout3 Modder friendly.

You are up for some Solo Singleplay action, that has a mix of an RPG Science Fiction, and a First person Shooter feel? Then deffently purchase Fallout3, it is a fun game that will keep making you come back to it over, and over again. But be warned. Fallout3 is rated MA, and has a lot of violence, blood, and cussing, and depending on the mod a lot of other things. Hehe.

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!
