Until next time, this is Three Dog! Awwoouuuuuu!midgetjacks | Oct. 4, 2014 | See all midgetjacks's reviews »
Here it is, the complete edition of an already solid game. With this version, you get all the dlc released. One of them is pretty much essential, another adds a secondary (albeit empty) location to explore, two are kinda neat sidequests, and one is a minor distraction, good for farming some XP.
If you're a fan of Fallout, just start here with this edition. And if you're coming from the Elder Scrolls side with some interest in Fallout, again, might as well just get this. You will spend hours upon hours exploring this rich, detailed world.
The complete packagemidgetjacks | Oct. 2, 2014 | See all midgetjacks's reviews »
Fallout 3 is pretty great, and the DLC was a mixed bag, but overall were nice additions. Here you get everything in one package, easily well worth it if you do not already own the base game. Even if you do own the base game, the cost of this is less than purchasing each piece of DLC separately. Buy it and prepare to lose a whole bunch of hours in the Capital Wasteland.
That's it folks!Obsessor | Aug. 7, 2014 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
I already reviewed Fallout 3, this here is just me adding few words on this release. Here you get all the DLC, which make the game a complete experience. You can level up to 30(20 in the initial release), and can get many new weapons, perks, armors, and what's more important - whole lot of new missions to play. A good reason for getting this version is that all the DLC are more expensive than the base game, or this here GOTY release. So if you're considering buying Fallout 3 - get the GOTY.

You're born about 200 years after a nuclear war. Humanity has survived in underground shelters called Vaults, or struggled on the surface. You can explore the vaults, discover how they failed, and what their true purposes were.
I really enjoyed learning the history of the world. It's set in an alternate timeline where things turned out quite differently. So differently, in fact, that everything looks like a 1950's science fiction comic. The aesthetic takes a little getting used to, but it grows on you. Vacuum tube robots give a very "lost in space" vibe.
The gun play is a big weak, but there is a good amount of variation. Everything from pistols to sticks to mini-nukes at your disposal. The base game has one or two alien weapons, but Mothership Zeta expands on that a bit. Operation Anchorage, however, gives you access to the Chinese Stealth Armor. Space guns and invisibility suits. Sneaking around and insta-killing enemies while stealthed is pretty fun. One wrong move and you're swarmed with angry bandits.
The modding community has made a number of amazing mods. Enhanced textures and lighting, custom companions and gear, quests, NPC/player beautification, and general tweaks. I installed a truck load of mods and the game still played very well.
A small amount of tweaking is required to get this game to run on modern computers and win7/8. It's very simple and painless, but it makes a massive difference in stability.
Bethesda does it again884okeoJ | July 2, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
I've always liked the Fallout games more than I liked the Elder Scrolls games, and Fallout 3 shows perfectly why. The atmosphere is unlike anything out on PC. Just stepping out into a radioactive DC wasteland and seeing the vast expanse of nuclear fallout is breathtaking. The segments of the game in the DC metro can be legitimately terrifying at times, with ghouls popping out of the shadows.
The VATS system is very well implemented and is a creative conversion of turn based combat to a first person shooter. Non-VATS combat is one of the weaker parts of the game, as there are no iron sights to use for your guns. The RPG elements are spread well over the first person shooter canvas, with you being able to create your own play style with a multitude of skills to level in.
The graphics of Fallout are okay for the time it was released, but the music is incredible. The selection of mid-1900's songs the game uses just help more to immerse yourself. The plot is pretty good, but the ending is subpar unless you have the Broken Steel DLC. Overall, Fallout 3 is a great game for anyone who is an RPG lover.
