Reviews for Fallout 3

Awesome game, still great fun

I consider fallout 3 to be one of the best open world rpg games I've ever played. The story was interesting the gameplay was fun, the locations and characters fantastic and unique. I would recommend this title to anyone even after all these years

A new point of view

If you are a classic Fallout player don't mind this review since Fallout 3 was my first Fallout. Fallout 3 became bigger than those isometric RPGs from the past. Bethesda made an FPS/RPG game out of the franchise and, in a huge open world experience as it if were an Elder Scrolls game, set an awful story for it. It is cool since you won't be playing storyline more than a few hours. Getting out of the shelter is one of the most epic moments in the game, and that feeling of not knowing where to go and how to survive. Well, there is not much about surviving in Fallout 3 since you will soon become a killing machine, but the idea is there. The game is actually pretty easy due to the vats system in which you can basically pause the game to auto-aim at your enemies' weakest points. Good game, but not the masterpiece you kind of expected.

A Masterpiece.

Few games rarely leave a moment engraved in your mind. But stepping out of vault 101 and having my character's eyes adjust to the outside light for the very first time, and revealing the expansive and almost endless world is something I will never forget. If you are on the fence and have never tried this game, I suggest you do it. Few games offer what Fallout 3 offers. The story is great, the set pieces and quests are unforgettable. You may even get lost exploring and feeding your curiosity that you may even ignore the main quest line. It's that good. Do yourself a favor and play this game.(Please note this game has compatibility issues with Windows 7/8/10, but fixes can be found online to correct the issue)

Crazy This Game Came Out 7 Years Ago

Fallout 3 is a game that defined a generation of gaming. RPG first-person shooters have exploded since this game came out, but no one has done it quite like Bethesda did with F3. If you are the type of player who enjoys linear gameplay, this might not be the game for you. There is a main storyline that can be followed, but the true heart of F3 is the open-world aspect that makes zero effort to restrict the player. The player can do whatever he/she wants whenever they want. The only thing that will stop them is death, in which outside the vault, there is ample opportunity. An aspect of the game that still blows my mind is the heavy part of the RPG element. In battle a player can stop time and select a part of an enemy to target. F3 is a game that will go down in history right there with Skyrim and is a must play for any serious or casual gamer. If you haven't experienced the game yet, you should buy it immediately.

"Wide as an ocean, shallow as a pond"

If you played Skyrim, this isn't what you would've hoped for. Although, except the transition from Spells and Swords to Guns, it's a pretty smooth one. The gameplay is more than satisfying for a game launched in 2008. The graphics are, again, pretty good. And with some mods, the game can be improved a little. Even if I'm more of a fan of the "Hack and Slash" gameplay mecanic, this game pleasantly surprised me. If you have a mid-low end range PC, this game is more than perfect to play.
