It's difficult to do the main story with so many distractions

phoenixwarrior0 | June 24, 2015 | See all phoenixwarrior0's reviews »

I have 50 hours in this game and I'm pretty sure I've done very little of the main story. As soon as you are free from the vault and into the wasteland you can go and do whatever you want, a post-nuclear world has a lot to offer. The concept of fallout games are very interesting, a nuclear war in 2077 and your character is living in a world hundreds of years after, having to live in a world full of mutated monsters in a almost dead world. This game has so much to offer, especially with the dlc added on. You can play this game however you want, kill everyone you meet? Sure. Fix town disputes with diplomacy or violence? Your choice. You can choose to help everyone around you to the best of your ability or just go straight to where to game directs you at the beginning of the game and let everyone fend for themselves. Absolutely your choice. This is a great game with so much to offer and the repercussions to what you do are shown and it's really interesting to see how the world pans out around you.


Incredible Narrative

nyangrubbles | June 17, 2015 | See all nyangrubbles's reviews »

Fallout 3 was one of the first open world Bethesda games I ever played, and remains to be one of my favorites. With an excellent leveling system, varied combat and weapons, crazy enemies, and exciting locations, the game keeps you hooked from beginning to end and even beyond. The main story is engaging and straight-forward, while also giving you choices that matter. The DLC and side quests are just as engaging, and honestly parts of the game are lost if you choose to skip them. Even after playing other Bethesda games such as Fallout: New Vegas or Skyrim, I would personally continue to recommend this one.


highly recommended game

its really one of the great games ever made, it takes the previous narrative of fallout from TBS into a mix of tactical shooter with TBS elements! great story (+ all the dlc), great atmosphere, great sound and music, great arsenal of weapons, and above all a lot to explore and see! it is also versatile by progress you can go melee combat or range, brute force or talk your way out...your call all over the game! truly a gem!


I Do Want to Set the World on Fire!

If you want the true bang for your buck collection, look no further than Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition. Once you play all of the main game AND the dlcs, you should easily be way over 100+ hours. If you can't imagine playing a game that long, I can tell why you will: Fallout 3 is pure fun and you will waste hours upon hours in the wasteland (seems fitting). The games starts out with you being born in Vault 101 and customizing what your character will look like when you are an adult. Your dad ends up being Liam Neeson (f yeah) and he is very important to the story. See years go by in the vault and suddenly one day when you are a young adult, your dad goes missing. Shit hits the fan quick inside the vault and you are pretty much thrown out into the Capital Wasteland to find your father. The Great Nuclear War has turned the earth into a literal dump with bits and pieces of humanity still surviving. From there you can do whatever you want, go find Liam Neeson, don't find him, shoot some ghouls, destroy a city, whatever you want, and that freedom is what makes the game so special and unique. Add on all the dlcs that came out from the game (including the truly superb Point Lookout) and you have one the best gaming experiences ever created. The only negative is the minor bugs and lackluster graphics coupled with Bethesda's awful looking animations. But you will get used to them and after an hour or so, you will forget all about them and be drawn into the awesomeness that is Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition.


Apocalyptic Americana

GrahamGD | April 14, 2015 | See all GrahamGD's reviews »

Before Fallout 3, I'd never heard the term "retrofuturstic". I played this wonderful game for the first time four years ago on an X Box 360 in a dear friends basement. We spent the weekend utterly engrossed in the bleak yet beautiful ruins of D.C. Now, I've sunk more hours into this game (and it's orange tinged sister New Vegas) than any other game. No other game has ever entranced me like Fallout 3, as it is one of the most unique games ever made. Not unique in the fact that it's a FPS/RPG, which nowadays seem a dime a dozen, but unique in the story and atmosphere that go along with the game. The soulful crooning of a long dead (in our present time, let alone 2277) jazz artist as the player walks the windy wastes or picks their way through a bombed out house in the middle of the urban nightmare that is D.C. will entrench this game in well deserved acclaim. It's not without it's share of baggage. The Gamebryo engine is clunkier than most when it comes to combat, the story has its trite moments, and the 2008 game is really showing it's age. But today, with a dedicated modding community and ENB software, this game can be expanded, tweaked, coddled, prodded, resigned and overhauled unlike any other. Even now, I still find myself coming back to Fallout, and finding new things. Because War, War never changes.
