Summary: Truth be told, I meant to buy this for the Xbox and not for PC, so I still haven't played the add-on packs--I hear they're awesome, though, especially Anchorage. The poster is not of a blue-suited Vault-boy but a green/tan Where's Waldo of all the perk emblems from the game--when I want to feel like more of a nerd I can sit and name every perk that the Vault-boy (or girl) exemplifies.
Summary: The Pitt was a weak addition to outstanding Fallout 3; fortunately, I'm a late-comer to the franchise, so got a great deal on it (<$10). I haven't bothered with Operation Anchorage as it's a "simulation" and I'm moving on to New Vegas.
Summary: I knew these games wouldn't measure up to the 3-D huge worlds of the new Fall-Out games. But I was disappointed with the slow and difficult game play. For the price they are worth having just for the history of Fall-Out. Finding out where some of the items and story-lines came from was interesting, and I look forward to the next new Fall-out game. I started playing with Fall-Out 3, that I had gotten for Christmas.
Won't suggest to anyone, had a headache after an hr or so playing

Summary: Several Friends suggested this game, said it was the best. Started playing and gave up shortly afterwards it was dreadfully stretched out and alot of the time you are just wandering around aimlessly. If you like doing that, then this is your game! Ha Ha. Won't suggest to anyone.
Summary: First off, I have no complaints with either Amazon or the vendor. My issue is with the product; I purchased this compilation so that I could play Fallout 1 & 2. Fallout-3 and New Vegas are such great games. The order came quickly and the purchase was simple and reasonable priced. Unfortunately, the game(s) wouldn't install on my computer. My DVDROM player on my computer would hang and lock my system. My system met all of the requirements.
Summary: I have both games fallout3 and fallout new vegas. I truely enjoy playing the games. However that being said i would of thought that when i purchased these game they would be complete. Things like characters flying thru the air after i kill them bouncing all over the map, disassociated landscape levels, traps in the area net of the game where you have to die or be outside of a cave, or map your character to another town.
Summary: I am sure this game was "bangin" for its time. As a hardcore video game player I guess I am a bit jaded and expecting a lot. Still, this game was one of the best games ever made when it came out and is still a lot of bang for your buck. I.e., it is ALOT of inexpensive video game to do.
Okay . . . but a great disapointment and letdown from the standard of the Wasteland.

Summary: I bought this with a great deal of anticipation because of the hype and some of the better reviews. The potential was there but I think the temptation to make a quick buck by the publisher won out. The best thing about Operation Anchorage was the stunningly beautiful mountain terrain one finds yourself in at first. Just wonderful. The first time I was in the mountains I just stared off into the clouds and listened to the wind. Just stunning.
