This game is incredible! I've only had it for a few days, but at every little turn, all the details that are in the game, I still can't believe how much they've been true to the series and the story. At first I was worried cause Bethesda was the development team (they have been known in the past to have some glitchie games e.g. Elder Scrolls) and I have had a few minor freezes, but thanks to the constant auto-saving, it hasn't been a big deal...yet. If you have ever played any of the other Fallout games, or even if not and you like survival/RPG style games, than pick this one up right away. I should have just bought it, rather than renting!
A must get game especially if you like Oblivion. Most of the gameplay elements are quite similar to oblivion right up to the melee weapons but the way you level up and increase your stats, such as strength e.t.c, is quite different. A very unique gaming experience that blends FPS with role-playing is what makes this game a MUST GET!!!
