This game is what got me into the Fallout franchise. Fallout 3 is a great game and the first in the Fallout series to be 3d with real-time combat. It's an open-world action RPG. The story is striking in my opinion. I felt that it was really well done. In fact, I loved it. The RPG elements are also great, albeit not to the same degree as in Fallout: New Vegas. Additionally, the setting is really cool as it takes place in a post-nuclear Washington D.C. And finally, Liam Neeson voices your father. Overall, it's a great game that any Fallout fan worth his/her salt should have already played by now. If you're new to the series, starting with Fallout 3 is a great idea. It's often on sale and well worth the money, especially when it's bundled with the DLC. I'd recommend it to anyone anywhere at anytime. 11/10
Fallout 3 is the first 3D fallout game in the franchise, now own my Bethesda, Fallout is now even bigger and complex than previous games. It vast, empty and brown/green world its now more open for you to explore. There is people to meet, weapongs and gear to find, enemies to defeat, friends to make and be who you want to be in a post-apocalyptic world. You can make decisions in the game that will tell the other who you are, a good, probably the next messiah, guy. Or a evil, son of the devil, guy that want just cause chaos. You're off in an adventure to find your Dad and to finish a job left by your parents to save the world... Or condemn it. The road its yours to that. Even tho the game is great, I highly recommend to buy the GOTY edition. The game feels empty without the DLC's, which are pretty good and add cool features in the game (Like raise the level cap).
I rushed a bit on finale because I wanted to see how it would end, but enjoyed most of its side quests and explored almost every inch of the places I traveled to. The post-apocalyptic atmosphere and OST are amazing, you are free to behave the way you like (and take its consequences), explore the wasteland as much as you like and become the lone wanderer. Played on Windows Seven x64 without too many problems, only some random crashes here and there - there are guides which cover all of the possible issues and propose a solution for every one of them. Would play it again and I feel like recommending it 100%.
Oblivion with guns was my first impression of this game and while I waited with anticipation for the release after all those years I can honestly say that this part was not all that great. I'm a bit sad that Bethesda got the license because this was not the fallout I was hoping for. The game is good and resembles Elder Scrolls but it very far forms original standards.
As the lone wanderer, you travel a massive sandbox through hell and high water to find and reunite with your father. Along the way, you can choose to take part in side quests out of genuine care, malicious intent or for the caps and achieve their means through ruthless slaughtering, theft, peaceful means or by using your skills to negotiate. These actions will reflect upon those who you converse with, work with or fight against in a karma-based system. I would recommend this game alongside its DLCs as a whole.
