It's all about location

If you're deciding between Fallout 3 and New Vegas, they're both great games and play almost identically. Splitting hairs, New Vegas is an overall better game boasting slightly better gameplay mechanics, supports more open-ended in-game choices, and is more lore-friendly. On the other hand, F3 is the better and more ambitious setting.

The Fallout universe is a cheeky caricature of america. While the cultural wastelands of Southern California and Las Vegas are ripe fruit, the capital wasteland of F3 takes this strident, yet cheerful introspection to new heights, precisely because D.C. is built to be a monument to how we want to perceive ourselves at our best.

In the backdrop of nuclear holocaust, sometimes you'll shake your head at the inanity of museums built to declaring victory in the space race instead of celebrating the achievement of humans setting foot on the moon. On the other hand, while sniping slavers is always fun, it will undoubtedly be even more so from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.


Like Skyrim... With Guns

Fallout 3 is my introduction to the Fallout Series and boy is it a good way to get wrapped up in its universe. The game starts you out as a baby and takes you through your young adulthood living in a Vault. The mystery now is that your father has left the Vault, an action no man shall ever perform. Now your quest is to find him and figure out what is actually going on. The story is an exceptional length. It's long enough without feeling stretched out. There are also plenty of side missions to keep you occupied throughout your quest or for when you are done and are looking for extra content. The world is awesome, it's Washington D.C.! It's large with lots of areas to explore and discover. The only downside is that the main story doesn't have you go to many different places on the map. It's technically good and bad because they leave you with lots of land to explore but if you only play the main story then you'll miss out on lots of extra areas. The skills system is great and shows depth. Each time I leveled up I would spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what to put my points into. Do I want to master explosives? Or should I be more sneaky? There are lots of weapons and pieces of armor to customize your character with, sadly the armor and clothing doesn't look that varied. There is also a fighting system called V.A.T.S. which lets you pause the game and attempt to get a stronger hit on enemies. It's very balanced. If you like RPGs and Bethesda's work then please give this a try.


Decent but nothing nostolgic

Shooty_McSnipe | June 17, 2014 | See all Shooty_McSnipe's reviews »

It mixes Fallout with Elder Scrolls , sadly losing the appeal of Fallout 1+2 , and gaining nothing from it as by the time Oblivion came out , Elder Scrolls lost it's hold on me. Golden era of that series was Daggerfall , and Fallout peaked with Fallout 2.

It's a solid game if you go into it as a new generation player. I would still recommend it as it's a more polished game than most out there and a lot of love went into its creation and it shows.

There are still laughs to be had , and some dicey situations to escape , and more than a few WTF moments.


A Modern Classic

PredatorDrone18 | June 15, 2014 | See all PredatorDrone18's reviews »

Fallout 3 changed the name of the RPG game. You can lose yourself in an immersive open-world environment with dozens of memorable characters, weapons, and missions. The thrill of finding a new (to you, anyway) gun in a hidden case where you expected to find nothing more than scrap metal and empty soda bottles is unmatched. The satisfaction when you hit a critical strike on the last member of an ambush when you are on the verge of death can be found almost nowhere else in the gaming industry. If you need a good game to pass time or a masterpiece that you can lose yourself in for countless hours of gaming, you've found the game that will do more than satisfy your needs.


New experience

With Fallout I have only once experience. I've played Fallout Tactics, but Fallout 3 is gotta a different kind of game. It is a mixed FPS with RPG game. And playing in this game is amazing experience. Open world, amazing enemys, really good story make this game one of the best on postapocalyptic game. If you like this kind of game - you must play in Fallout 3!!
