Amazing Open World Post-Apocalyptic FunSandromin | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all Sandromin's reviews »
Not only is Fallout 3 an amazing game, but the DLC create an experience completely unique to the Fallout series. Everything from the weapons to the locations add to the sense of a post-nuclear 1950s setting and the DLC only add more. I found myself blown away by the game's atmosphere and the modding community is spectacular. Although some glitches could dampen the experience, they do not make the game any less great. Everything about the game builds into an epic story, start to finish. Truly a masterpiece from the workers at Bethesda, Fallout 3: GOTY is an essential game to people who want a greater open-world experience.

This game has no equal. It excels in everything it sets out to do. Characterization is solid to the point that you think you've met real people, combat is fluid, flowing between the VATS system for bullet time targeted attacks and real time combat. The story is excellently told with an emphasis on building a world with interconnecting stories. The world is fun to explore and you'll want to turn fast-travel off so you can feel the atmosphere for longer periods of time. All that with a well presented aesthetic with truly masterful art direction and you have a recipe for an amazing experience.
Other games will look not so great from now on!michelpulha | Nov. 12, 2013 | See all michelpulha's reviews »
After playing FO3 I found it very difficult to get back to the basic FPS games, 'cause the RPG feeling of this game is so addictive that games based on a linear storyline now are just not enough. You'll think "ok, it would be nice to do that, but why I can't just do the other way?". You'll be addicted, craving for more interaction with the story, more decisions to make, more possibilities to explore.

Fallout 3 is an absolutely fantastic look at an apocalyptic wasteland. There are hours and hours of gameplay and exploration. I have put hundreds of hours into exploring every facet of this world, completing all the side quests and finding all the rare items. With each expansion, the game is opened up even more, providing new stories and angles to play. If you want a fun experience, blending RPG and FPS style gameplay, this is for you.
Flawless, no, EPIC, YES!eL_Jay | Oct. 24, 2013 | See all eL_Jay's reviews »
This game made me buy a xbox360 and the first time i played it, I was blown away. The first time i got sucked into a game and felt like I was the protagonist, The Lone Wanderer.
However a few years later i played it on the pc and a new world emerged. The very frequent loading times can be surpassed by using a SSD and therefore solving the biggest draw-back of this game. The other draw-back is the lack of iron-sights and the overpowered VATS-system.
Luckily there are a ton of mods to solve most issues.
Furthermore this is a game were the dlc adds such significant story to the game i urge you to buy the GotY edition. (Brotherhood of Steel is the best DLC ever only rivalled by the shivering isles of TES4).
To all you FPS and RPG lovers that dont already own this game, buy the GotY edition and emerge yourself for over a 100 hours in a single-playthrough is the post apocalyptic wastelands.
