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.
I thought I was a fool for bashing this game. I regret the fact that I didn't want to try this game.
This is still Fallout, and it's still pretty darn good!
Is it "Elder Scrolls with guns?" Well, yes and no. As I said this is still Fallout. Character creation, perks and all that stuff. It's all back! Plus the creepy ambiance and humor. It's a win win from almost every angle!
I do however have some issues with it. Like with that intro!
While the idea of life in the vault is nice, it can get tedious if you ever decide to try another route, or just wanna experiment. Truth be told Temple Of Trials in Fallout 2 wasn't a warm welcome either after a while, but it was shorter.
I also don't like the fact that you must take training before you can use power armor.
You better get used to combat, it's like a FPS (somewhat). Think of it as Tactics in first person. It's fun and blowing off heads (while gibs fly everywhere with blood) is awesome.
Megaton is F3's Junktown. And the character I instantly fell in love with is Moria Brown. She's insane!
Overall it's insanely good! It's got that Fallout spirit going! And there's player choice, much like in the original!
I forgot to add for music. It was done by Inon Zur, same guy who did music for Fallout Tactics. In short, it's full of win! If you didn't hired the man, the legend Mark Morgan of course.
Highest Rated (6 agree) 9/10
I have to give credit where credit is due, and Bethesda are to be congratulated on making a worthy follow up to the first two classic Fallout games, with more content in the vanilla version than you could shake a Radscorpion tail at, and especially for making it immensely modifiable, increasing the time I've spent with it from the dozens of hours to the hundreds. That being said, Fallout 3 is arguably much more than the sum of its parts. From the mediocre game engine with its endless bugs, some…
