Wow - "Keep It"

As I emerged from Vault 101 to gaze upon the expansive view of the desolate wastelands, I finally began to realize what folks meant when they said "This game is big".

This game is big. Really big.

It is a true Role Playing Game, which is probably the biggest complication for someone with a busy "real life". I tend towards games I can play in 10-20 minute clips. This is not that type of game.

But Wow.

The First Person Shooter/action implementation was done well enough to make up for the boring segments (don't scold me, I have a really short attention span). I find the balance of action, dialog, choices, and story more rewarding than any other RPG game I've tried (including Oblivion).

I didn't spend nearly as much time creating my initial character as others, and I find the occasional "level up" questionnaires easy to complete quickly.

The limitless possibilities, and potential to change the outcome so drastically based on simple choices, makes me think I'll be playing this game to completion several times (which is very odd for me).

Graphics: Spectacular for such a large world.
Audio: Enjoyable
Controls: Bearable
Story: Awesome

For me what truly makes this game incredible is they managed to offer an infinite number of choices (both in the game itself and in how you can play it) while keeping it simple enough that anybody can quickly pick it up and enjoy.

I'll "keep it"

A tribute to the Original Fallout!

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!
