I've never played a single Fallout game before Fallout 3, so keep that in mind when reading this, but I LOVE this game. Like any good Bethesda game, there is a huge giant world to explore with tons of enemies, loot, quests, towns, npcs, and just endless amounts of content. The game is basically an Elder Scrolls game, but set in the Fallout universe. The stats and leveling system is really good, better than Skyrim or Oblivion in my opinion. And I found the story, lore, world and atmosphere way more interesting than that of the Elder Scrolls. The game also really addicting, and it's very easy to lose a lot of your time in this game. However the game is not without it's faults. Outside of the game not looking all that great graphically, it also suffers from bugs and crashes, like any Bethesda game. The game CONSTANTLY crashes on me, no matter what I do. Every time I boot up the game, 30 minutes later, it crashes. If I reboot it after that, it's fine, but it's incredibly frustrating, especially if when I forgot to save and had to redo a whole bunch of stuff. With that in mind, is Fallout 3 good? Yes, it is. Better than Elder Scrolls and a really solid RPG/Shooter. Just don't mind the crashes and bugs.

BGS is one of the best RPG developers in the industry. Their first attempt at Fallout lives up to their reputation. An amazing and enjoyable game immersing you in post apocalyptic Washington, D.C. My major criticism is gun play is extremely poor and it can be a chore to travel long distances on foot when you haven't been to that location yet (vehicles would be nice). This game is cheap and is definitely one people should pick up if they haven't. Also, did I forget to mention mods? Mods for any BGS game including Fallout 3 and New Vegas revolutionize the game and provide it infinite replay value. I'd recommend playing this until Fallout 4 releases in early November. Get it now.

The world and atmosphere are great. The cheerful music of the fifties really contrasts with the gray, brown, and green of the world in just the right way. The main story isn't great. It lacks any sort of meaningful choice or nuance and leaves you with many questions about why the characters did what they did. The side quests also lack meaningful choice that will affect you later in the game. The combat is pretty lackluster. Since there are no iron-sights hitting anything without using VATS is pretty hard. on top of that VATS doesn't handle very well. It freezes time which completely stops the flow of battle. Now all these things aren't to say this game is bad. Its actually really fun. So I wouldn't recommend this game if you wanna play it over and over again. It just gets boring after the first time you beat it.

Fallout 3 is an open-world role-playing game that delivers an experience unlike any other game. You are born into a post-apoclyptic world where radiation has corrupted those who were not within the vaults underground to protect themselves. It begins with your father escaping your home, Vault 101, as you chase after him into the wasteland, you must fight monsters, raiders, and super mutants in a quest to reunite with your dad. You can also do some other stuff along the way and make friends(or enemies) with an expansive amount of choices and quests. A must buy game.

Essentially if you are a fan of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series, you'll probably be a fan of Fallout 3. This, of course, assumes that you enjoy a post-apocalyptic setting. It is a cohesive RPG with FPS elements or maybe it's vice versa. Whatever who cares because the gameplay is great and a fun experience. It is full of content and that is not even including the DLC bundled with the GOTY. Definitely mod the game if you can because you'll just make it even better.
