Vault-Tec engineers have worked around the clock on an interactive reproduction of Wasteland life for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own vault. Included is an expansive world, unique combat, shockingly realistic visuals, tons of player choice, and an incredible cast of dynamic characters. Every minute is a fight for survival against the terrors of the outside world – radiation, Super Mutants, and hostile mutated creatures. From Vault-Tec, America’s First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation.
Just beat this game a few days ago on the PS3. Apart from the great open world this game is, I hate the fact that after beating the game, you can't continue unless you get the Broken Steel DLC. Also theres lots of annoying bugs even in the patched version that can get in your way.
Great game overall, otherwise I'd give 10/10 if it had less bugs.
I'll be buying this game again for PC just to mod and mess around :3
Having grown to love open world games over the past few years as they infiltrate the gaming market, it was only a matter of time before I found the glorious dereliction that is fallout 3.
The sheer size of this game in its playable map and gaming hours is close to unsurpassed. Having never been a fan of RPG's, fallout combines the skill level, NPC interaction and attribute sorting elements of a solid role player with the first hand combat and interaction of an action-shooter, providing gamers with a myriad of ways to play.
You begin life (and I mean begin from birth) in Vault 101, an underground bunker designed to protect pockets of humanity from the dangers of the Washington DC wasteland left to rot since the last nuclear war 200 years ago.
When your father goes missing and leaves the safety of the vault it is up to you to scavenge the desolate landscape outside the vaults enclosure to find your father. This is done through a series of quests which constitute the main body of the game, while other random meetings with nuclear survivors provide a myriad of additional side missions in which you learn more about life in the Capital Wasteland and the people who are claiming the last vestiges of humanity out in the ruins.
As well as human survivors, there are dozens of other factions all vying for their grip on what's left to be had since the war. Hulking, Shelley inspired super mutants, Slavers, Raiders, The enclave and The brotherhood of steel all provide insight and danger in your exploration of the desolate landscape.
Aided by your pip-boy, a wrist based navigation computer you progress not just through plot but also as a character, learning various skills and traits which will lead you to not only survival but eventually to become a Legend of the wasteland.
I absolutely love this game, it is nearly endless with so many possibilities, so many strategies, the only downside is no ADS (resolved in FO NV) and a single ending (resolved in FO NV) for me there is no other major reason to not like this game, its a masterpiece.
Keep fighting the good fight people.
