While I liked the classics better, i have to admit, fallout 3 is a great game too, albeit for different reasons. Still, there is a lot to like here, and it's always nice when the story continues, in a way... Fallout 3 is huge, it has a nice story, and I have to admit, the levelling system makes more sense then the first or second game. The transition to 3d is weird at some places, and the combat is especially comical at times, but on the other hand, the base of the brotherhood is just as cool, as i imagined it through nostalgia glasses, and there is something strangely satisfying to see the bloody mess perk in work up close. Overall, if you liked the world, this is still your game, just looks a little better, and plays a little different, but it's still fallout, kinda.
Very nice game but not as good as fallout new vegas,or fnv as i will call it from now. Fallout 3 is very good but lacks some of the best mechanics of FNV so i prefer that.But exploring the capital wasteland is always fun! 7/10
This game, right here, it's one of the best game of it generation. Yeah, it may not be has extensive and big has the new one. But this one had character, guts and it's not afraid of using deathclaws against you.
First off I want to say I enjoyed this game. The atmosphere, vast amount of quests and the enormous map, I enjoyed all of this. However, as a fallout fan and fan of RPGs in general, I cannot really say this game is as good as some people make it out to be, The dialogue and story are pretty poorly written, the combat is sort of clunky with no aim-down-sights (you gotta get a mod for that), the conflicting plot holes between this game and the rest of the fallout franchise, and the repetitive bullet-sponge-like supermutant enemies that seem to be simply spammed everywhere the devs didn't know what else to put (pretty much everywhere)
In a way, Fallout 3 is Bioshock for the people who felt let down by Bioshock. Even more than last year's much argued over masterpiece, it's the successor to games from an older, maybe smarter era of PC gaming. Like Bioshock, it's a game that takes inspiration from period style and classic science fiction, and like Bioshock it goes heavy on narrative, dark humour and atmosphere. Also like Bioshock, it transforms many of the conventions and play mechanics of the traditional RPG in order to make a game that appeals to a wider audience. Arguably, Fallout 3 does some of this stuff better. If you felt sad or irritated that Bioshock had 'dumbed down' from System Shock 2 then you can relax about Fallout 3. This might not be the Fallout you remember, but it's far from being an FPS with light RPG elements. In fact, while the cliched description of Fallout 3 as 'Oblivion with guns' is inaccurate, this is every bit as much an RPG as The Elder Scrolls IV, and maybe even more so.
