    Fallout 3 Review

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Let me start by saying itís my recommendation that you should buy Fallout 3. I just loved it, all of it, and now itís definitely the best game in my collection. Keep reading to find out why.

    What are you waiting for? Go now! This is simply a fantastic game, made by a fantastic company, and sets a new standard for the future of video game releases.

    Strong pointed statements, right? Should I start backing this up by saying itís probably the best game I have ever played? Should I say that I give it an overall score of 11 out of 10? (Mainly because I can and yes, it is that good). Or should I begin explaining how Fallout 3 was a game that completely ruined how I felt about Resistance II (6.5 out of 10) and Mirrorís Edge (VERY, VERY aggravating, 5 out of 10), because they were so very inferior to this great release? 

    So letís make that my first point of discussion. I'd like to bring your attention to the enormous size of the game world and the huge availability of fantastic quests, locations, activities and deeds that need to be done. Fallout 3 has a unique makeup, spanning several different ďtypesĒ of games (part role playing game, part investigation and discovery and part first person shooter). 

    Frankly, there are so many things to do that itís probably going to take at least two or three full game completions to even get close to mastering all of them (and thatís a really, really good thing). And I even have the strategy guide, an impressive 454-page bloated hog of a book thatís really not necessary once you figure out what you are initially supposed to be doing and how everything works. Although the game world is quite large, using the in-game ďFast TravelĒ functionality, you can quickly revisit any previously discovered location. 

    The funny thing, even though I have completed the game and all the major and minor quests, I am still finding many unused buildings, stuffed with loot, traps and mutants. It wasnít uncommon for me to pick a building out on the horizon and just run to it, just to see what it was and if I could get into it, which I usually could. Several times I thought I was in the right place for a quest at hand, spending hours pillaging and cleaning it out, only to find out I was in the wrong place! Thatís a really fun aspect of this game, the discovery and wandering throughout the world map.
