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.
I can truly say I'm going to be occupied for a while. FALLOUT3 is an entirely impressive immerssive experience. Your time will be well spent in post-apocalyptic D.C running and gunning for various people, and in the midst of it all following in the footsteps of your father. While comparisons will be made to Oblivion, Bethesda has outdone themselves and given us a game akin to Oblivion, but on Jet (a chemical in the game). The game is visually stunning. Post-nuclear-holocaust has never looked prettier. Pop-up has been reduced from Oblivion and it runs smoothly. The gameplay is AWESOME!!! You can make any type of character you want. Do you like stealth? hack n' slash? Sniping? or just blowing stuff up? You can do it all. The skill system is fun and lets you create a character that is unique based upon your chosen play style. I absolutely love all the weapon and armor choices, along with custom made weapons, and stat boosting chemicals. Two minor complaints: the computer hacking game needs a little tweaking although you can have an unlimited amount of chances to succeed. The thrid person view seems a little off or floaty, but works great when exploring the wasteland so you can see a little further around you. The VATS system is phenomenal. Targeting body parts and seeing it executed in cinematic bliss is truly amazing! Even melee!!! A lot of people have said there is no replay-ability in the game; this is simply untrue. Along with changing the type of character you play , you can change your moral stance. I have the guide and looking in the back of the book, there are multiple endings based on several choices and actions in the game. I haven't read them, nor do I want to spoil it for myself or others, but I can see that several endings are listed. So there you go! I definitely think this game is a buy nor rent. It will suck up your time and you will love every second. You may come away crippled and a little irradiated, but you won't care because it's all AWESOME!!
