"Loving it!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I only bought this game a few days ago and already it's consuming every second of my spare time, I liked the elder scrolls series but this has something that oblivion did not – Heart pumping action! Imagine walking through the wastes feeling quite confident your the only one around then you hear the woosh of sniper fire wizzing past your head – you can't tell where it's coming from so you run, the next sound you hear is beep-beep-beep-beep, you've activated a landmine! Now your thinking F#%K F#%K F#%K! Still running with your heart pumping ( you know the feeling ). And before you know it you've run so far so fast everything is back to being eerie quiet and your sure no one else is around… maybe your right… maybe your not. The point I'm trying to make is that It's very rare to find a RPG that is so full of things you can do, backed up by an awesome story line and still has enough action sprinkled in to keep you on your toes while your trying to accomplish a seemingly simple quest. Don't miss it, It's so addictive I'm afraid it will cost me my job. Oh, and the graphics are great yarda yarda and so on.

"The most involving game ever!!"
5 stars"

Fallout 3 has consumed a good four months of my life, this game is so addictive its damn near impossible to put down! The Oblivian engine makes the world seem very realistic (if you can imagine post apocolyptic america) Only a few little things let the game down, those being if you follow just the main story line and clock the game you cannot use the character you have worked on, so make sure you take your time and play all those side quests!! You can also get some very cool bonus items and perks from these side quests, but i wont spoil you with the details :) A great game overall, an absolute must for your gaming collection!!

"Not quite perfect, but..."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This really is a good game and well worth playing. It's not perfect, it has its good points and not so good points, but what game doesn't?

For the first few hours I was simply gob-smacked. I wandered around just drinking in the scenery of the wonderfully derelict wasteland, killing the odd raider and molerat and doing a bit of scavenging, before exploring some of the settlements and doing some quests. After a while though (a long while) the novelty wore off and it started to lose its lustre a bit. Everyone seems to have their own idea of what's wrong with it, or how it could be better. It just seems to be missing a certain something to keep you interested when you finally get bored with wandering, exploring/sca­venging and fighting. Although I like it a lot, I personally didn't find it as engrossing as the other Fallout games or the Elder Scrolls games (the two series to which comparison is unavoidable). That being said I've been playing it next to non stop since it came out.

If you're a Fallout aficionado you may find it slightly watered down to give it a wider appeal to casual gamers. And the adult content that helped make Fallout 2 such a classic is noticeably missing. If you're an Oblivion aficionado you may find there are relatively few side quests and the settlements don't seem as well fleshed out and interesting. And there are sadly no joinable factions with mini campaigns to play through, although it's just as lavishly detailed.

Also, the main quest is quite short. Although I enjoyed the ending and I didn't mind that you can't continue playing when the story ends, it would be nice if they came up with an original story instead of ripping it right from Fallout 2.

But there's still a lot to love about this game. I recommend going into it without expectations and judging it on its own merits. I think it's a great role playing experience (though you level a touch too fast for my liking), and shooter fans will probably like it too.

"WHAT A GAME!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

you get your usuall shoting game right… well fallout 3 is 10 steps ahead of any other shoting game on the market! although it may be a bit confusing, watching a bullet penetrate a super mutants brain of watching a NUKE GO OF IS JUST AWSOME!!! the game litrally explodes with guts and action!

"Epic, Open and full of hours"
5 stars"

Out of all the third gen games there have been very few games that can offer the depth, length and re-playability that fallout 3 can. The things that drew me to fallout were its huge and very unique world, its karma system which can lead the story into many different endings, Its wide range of characters with their own unique story's and its deep and flexible combat system.

If you are looking for a game that will provide plenty of hours, lots of ways to play, tons of re-playability, heaps of weapons, lots of exploring and a change from simple FPS liner gameplay this is the game for you.
