I think this game had alot of potential and believe the hype. I did have fun playing the game but got lost after awhile, once the dad ran away and you were to search for him. I gave the rating a 7, It was fun for the first couple of hours of play, then I got lost and running with no ammo is not fun. It seems its easy to get lost in this game but overall, was ok.

I have to say, when I first saw pictures and video's for Fallout 3, I was a little under whelmed. I thought that the game was just The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion with guns, but I was way off. About ten minutes into the game, you know you're playing some thing like you have never played before. It's a game so different from just every other game you have ever played, yet you can jump right in it and start your life as a survivor of a nuclear war. While the game has some similarities to Oblivion, such as the item management and the way you communicate with NPC's, it's combat system and over tone could not be any more different. The game's gun play is remarkable and revolutionary, helped a lot by the game's V.A.T.S. system. The action is very different than your average shooter, where jumping all over the place won't save you life but strategic cover and aiming will. Another great quality is the level up system. It's very much like the original Fallout's where you are given a set amount of things to level up and then you can specialize in a set perk.
There is not a lot more I can say about the game, it set's a new bar for rpg's and games in general. It does so many things and it does them well.
If you like rpg's or games in general, it's defiantly worth a rental or a buy, it's just that good.

the idea of this game is great, the game play isn't to bad, the graphics arent that good either,its wide open and a huge place to rome like everyone is saying but if you stick to the main mission,it took only about 14 missions to beat the game which was not to good for me,this game is like oblivion/resistence in one......
