"An outstanding, epic Adventure"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fallout 3 is quite possibly the funnest game you will play this year.

As the game begins, you will notice this is no game you have played before. You start by creating your own character, which is incredibly deep, you could spend ages tweaking all. Be careful, however, as this is what your character will look like for the remainder of one of the biggest, deepest games ever made.

Then, part way in the game, you are released from the great “vault” (I will try not to give any more away…) and immediately you will notice that the landscapes are phenomonal. Graphically, this is one of the prettier games released so far on the PS3.

If you are looking for a game that constantly follows a particular narrative, has ‘checkpoints’ or ‘acts’… look elsewhere, because you WILL play this game for hours finding that you haven't gotten anywhere in terms of the main quest.

This is a good thing, however. You want to be checking behind every building, in every house, in every stage of the entire game. This is because Fallout 3 is an extraordinary achievement, and games with such detail must always be explored to every extent possible. The amazingly unique dystopian world which Bethesda has created will, simply put, be one of the best experiences you have in a video game.

The combat is good, and the way that you can freeze the enemy and select one of each and every different limb to pierce a bullet into, is just extraordinary.

Overall, Fallout 3 lives up to all the hype, providing an experience a sight more entertaining than Oblivion, with a compelling story and some brilliant visuals, voice-acting, and sound effects.. Fallout 3 is not a game. It is a total experience – one that is not to be missed. 9.5/10

"Classic RPG."
5 stars"

Outstanding..­....... A massive post apocalyptic RPG that stays true to the genre of role playing. If you're a fan of RPG titles then you need to see what Bethseda have set as a benchmark for these types of titles. The only downside is the excessive ‘horror’ type imagery (dead bodies on meathooks etc…) which I find is unnecessary (oblivion had much worse sadly :().

That aside it does not detract from a brilliantly designed world where the player really can customize and create a character to their own end. It does have some glitches in the graphics and the V.A.T.S system can be awkward on smaller enemy's.

The slow motion scenes with V.A.T.S have to be seen to be believed. It is hugely satisfying lining up multiple enemy's for shots and kills and then seeing them taken out in a ‘Matrix’ style slow mo' shot!!

You get a huge range of skills,weapons and gear along with character traits to develop in a huge and beautifully designed world of radioactive mayhem. Think of all the post nuclear post apocalyptic movies like mad max,40 days later, I am legend, omega man combined with a great RPG system and you have a game that will keep you locked in for days on end.........!!

Brilliant game just book a holiday from the wife and work before buying..........

"Excellent"
5 stars"

Great game has all the features a real Fallout fan wants (pity its not like the other fallouts). It comes with a lot of surprises and scary features like travelling around the waste land with mutant stalking you. And the Easter eggs in this game are always fun to find. There is so much detail in this game like little objects on the shelf. 5 stars*****

"A must have for all ps3 gamers"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

this game blew away my expectations. i had played oblivion and loved it, but fallout 3 in the post nuclear setting was far far better. An amazing storyline following the clues to find your father and help him with “Project Purity” can be finished within 3–4 days of hard gametime, but the game can never really be finished. There are so many side quests and areas in the world to be discovered that you will never get bored with this game. I highly reccommend this game to anyone who likes FPS games and likes blowing up zombie brains. 10/10

"IF U LIKE OBLIVION,WELL THIS IS THE GAME FOR U"
5 stars"

When I saw the game, I was wondering what was all the hype this very game?. Well when I saw the creators of this masterpiece and was in fact the same creator of the Elder Scrolls games, I thought that this might be a good game...... not til I played it ..... IT'S NOT A GOOD GAME, ITS BRILLIANT MASTERPIECE. My advice: Get it once. Your start playing it you would never stop wanting to put down the controller, because its so addictive. Anyway, i give this game a 10/10 result. Good on ya Bethesda Game Studios you have done one helluva job.

Description

The long awaited third installment in the classic Fallout franchise is being developed by Bethesda.

Vault 101 - Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec® engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you’ve ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.
