Fallout 3: Difficult but Fun

I have to admit that I was indeed very excited for this game, I had been waiting in anticipation for a few months, and it disappointed me only in the slightest. It is definitely a good game, and I can say I am a hardcore gamer, and I do like a challenge, but at the beginning of this game the difficulty curve is slightly absurd. At the first town I began to pickpocket, and not seeing any negative reaction from the townspeople, (except a few "You've been caught Pickpocketing" warnings) I continued to do so. After the first game day in the town, EVERY single person in the town began to attack me! My only defense was a measly pistol with 3 shots. Eventually leading to my repetitious, and frustratingly agonizing deaths. Leading to an eventual restart of the game. (Yes I had to start at the very beginning, truly degrading)
In conclusion; excluding a few minor glitches ,many of which are Oblivion-esque mishaps, Fallout 3 is a very good game, and I definitely recommend a rental, if not a buy.

at first the game was passable and when u get out of the vault it gets worse. the game is full of beauty from the blown up houses to the white house but that's it! the story suks all it is is u searching for ur father no story line u go to one place and the tell u hes in another spot. the difficulty of the game is also hard, i had it on normal an i died every time i fought someone!! i had to put it on very easy but even then it took 2 head shots to kill someone!! the guns are beautiful looking but buying them is stupid! u either buy bullets or the gun not both!! and if u do its a horrible pistol. ur characters accuracy is the worst i've ever seen!! from a foot away u couldn't shoot a f'n truck!! i love these kind of games(bioschock, elder scrools, gta 4) but this one is just an awesome idea crapped on. i was waiting for this game for a long time and i barely give time to write reviews so im not lying or overeacting at all!! most people will like it but not love it.
