"Great Game"
4 stars"

I disagree with the previous 2 comments.

I was a HUGE fan of the other 2 Fallout games (not counting Tactics or BoS), and only mildly amused by Oblivion. I think Bethesda have done a great job. There is a bunch of humour in the game, and the graphics are great.

Reading the other comments i feel like maybe i was playing a different game =P I do agree that the main storyline is short, but there a HUGE number of side quests, and many different ways to do things.. You could spend (literally) hours exploring just the ruins of DC alone.

The sneak skill is one of the most useful.

The ability to pause at any time to apply a stimpack (health regen) makes combat relativley trivial, but overall a fantastic game which i have loved playing and look forward to any expansion.

Only thing that stops me from giving it 5 stars is the crashing issues which i hope will be resolved soon in a patch.

"A MUST HAVE!!!"
5 stars"

This game is awesome! It is almost perfect once you get the patch and its very addictive. The funniest part is when you have a high sneak skill, and you pick-pocket a foe and stick a live grenade in there pocket, then watch as they jump around then boom!. It even works on the bosses!!!

The Graphics look great on my P4 and runs smooth too. There are many ways to play too, like melee fighting, shooting, throwing grenades or using nukes. you can also avoid some fights simply by having a high speech skill and talking them out of it.

Windows live is also great too as its integrated right in and every milestone earns you points. you can also get the add-ons as well which on the 3rd one in March will let you go past the end of the main quest and adds 10 more levels to the level cap, bringing it from 20 to 30.

All in all this is one of those games that are gonna get a game of the year award and become a classic.

"Awesome game, but not for everyone."
5 stars"

Excellent game, I am totally addicted. But it's the type of game where you will either love it or hate it.

Things you'll definitely love:

  • Graphics are incredible (assuming you have a decent PC). I have everything on maximum at 1920×1200 and it's just spectacular.
  • Interactivity with EVERYTHING. You can interact with almost every object and destroy almost anything.
  • Hundreds of guns / apparel / consumables.
  • Fantastic storyline… play this game in the dark while you're alone and you'll immerse yourself more so than the average game.

Things some might like but might turn you off completely:

  • Long game, if you're looking for a quick shoot 'em up with no real thought or don't like organising your inventory – then move on.
  • Unrealistic in parts. Some of the physics don't make sense, also you can carry so much more than a person would actually be able to. But most of all you can basically pause time at any stage – and eat things / change guns / apparel etc during a battle. These things are necessary for the game but far from realistic.
  • Not much like the previous Fallouts. For me this was welcomed as I wasn't much of a fan of any of them.

This is the post apocalyptic game I always wanted. Countless directions, options, missions to choose from with graphics to match. And yourself and enemies are damaged by where you shoot them. Blow off a leg and they stumble around. Shoot the gun out of their hand and they come after you with the one fist they have left.

Easily 5/5.
