Fallout 3 | XBox 360 - Standard
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 24, 2009

Released in late October 2008 Fallout 3 is the most recent release in the Fallout series by Bethesda Games. Taking place 30 years after the events of Fallout 2, Fallout 3 continues in the same dystopian vein, which involves a living in a world cut short by a deviating all-out nuclear war. Primarily an action RPG, Fallout 3 mixes a visually fantastical world with surprisingly realistic game play - which includes things such as radiation poisoning, a karma based interaction, weapon degradation and the ability to build your own weapons and items out of the vast number of doodads one can encounter. A 50MB patch issued in mid January fixed a number of bugs including crashing issues. It also made way for 3 planned downloadable installments that will expand the game. Each installment is planned to be released a month apart, beginning in late January/early February. The miniature packs will cost ... PROS: (1) play with your own combat style and moral compass (2) so many ways to play, places to go, quests to do - good replay value (3) visually stunning (4) great attention to detail (5) Open world enviornment ... CONS: (1) Leveling caps out way too soon. Player reaches lvl 20 and still sooo much more to explore. (2) such a high standard makes bugs/design flaws painfully evident (3) very few constructible weapons or items (4) Short game if you just play the main missions; only takes about 6-8 hours (5) early stability issues on PC

Fallout 3
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Will keep you going for 70+ hours. Deep storyline. Tons of weapons of perks. A new system introduced (VATS). What you do(karma)impacts on your character and storyline. Tons of DLC.

Weakness: some glitches. No facial expression on the people when talking to them.some freezing(game crashing occurrences)

Fallout 3 is an amazing game. With tons of great DLCS that will keep you going.I have played 79 hours of gameplay and I am still not tired of it...in fact I am going to start over to be a bad karma person. Those littles things made fallout 3 a game of the decade. I rate it 5 stars.

Fallout 3
5 Star Review   By member AwesomePossum - Feb 1, 2009   

Strengths: Strong story, big game world, abundant sidequests, good fighting system, and pretty nice graphics.

Weakness: Glitches, level cap, and NPCs have low repair skill.

I have to say, Fallout 3 is one of the best games I've played in awhile. A marvelous game with an excellent story. "We are born in the Vault, we die in the Vault" is what they say about Vault 101, but isn't totally true. At age 19, you wake up to hear that father leaves the safety of Vault 101 - the jewel of the Wastes. You leave Vault 101 and explore the Capitol Wasteland to search for your father - and that's just the start of things. I give Fallout 3 a Five, out of Five.

Oblivion With Guns
4 Star Review   By member markc72 - Nov 12, 2008   

Strengths: Cool landscape, Huge amount of quests, and good story.

Weakness: Lot's of walking to your destination and graphics are decent.

I really like Oblivion and it's from the same makers. I got a little bored of Oblivion after I had finished it so I got this to hope that it would appeal to me again. It did but I'm not jumping for joy over this game. It is a very good game but it has a very slow pacing to it and it takes many hours to finish the game. The missions are laid out pretty good but sometimes I found it hard to determine where the compass is leading you sometimes. Fighting in the game is done in 2 ways. One is to do the normal FPS way or the other way is to stop time and target a certain body part on the enemy and then it goes into a cut scene. The graphics are pretty good considering it is such a huge game. I would recommend this game to be played after the holidays when you get bored with some of the better games that came out.

Great game
4 Star Review   By member mchenowe - Nov 12, 2008   

Strengths: graphics, sound, story, battles

Weakness: very dark and depressing setting

This game from the makers of Oblivion is extremely well done. The graphics, sound, and gameplay are all impressive. I prefer the medievil setting of Oblivion, but all aspects of this RPG are improved compared to that game. This is definitely not a kids game with extreme violence, profanity, and moral situations. You can choose to handle situations any number of ways and if you choose to fight, the weapons are incredible. The attack selection mechanism works well and shows off some very scenes that could compete with Hollywood action sequences. If you liked Oblivion and are okay with the dark mood, this game will provide hours of entertainment.
