Showing 1-7 of 7
The worst game ever
8 June 2010
Summary: I was a big fan of Bethesda until I bought this game. Do not buy this, you have been warned.
Pros: The game itself is wonderful. There are so many quests to do and places to explore. That is the only good thing about it though.
Cons: The game is broken. It freezes constantly. The only way you can play it is on 360 since apparently there is a fix released on 360 only which makes the game more stable. I feel ripped off by newegg which I have always trusted to sell products that work as intended but this is just simply broken an...
Summary: If you already own this and you start to encounter this problem, just give up until they release a patch. If that never happens, then just move on. I have wasted way too much time trying to figure out what was causing the glitches and how to work around them because I sooo wanted to reach the next...
Pros: Artwork and environment, well thought story, huge maps, and very lengthy story line.
Cons: You will learn the true meaning of frustration if you buy this. You will totally love this game and then you will hate it like no other game in history. Just when you get totally addicted to the game (I invested many hours/days/weeks, months) it continuously freezes more and more -- I got so far ...
Summary: its sad, this game is amazing but the issues render it almost unplayable. I know reading this you will think that I am the execption. read some forums though, anyone not have a barrel of issues is the RARE exception. Dont waste the money on it until it get fixed... big iff
Pros: Great game, huge, fun, 150+ hours, open ended
Cons: Glitches!!!! Freezes!!! Do not get this game unless you find out that they will be releasing a patch (which Beth. isnt known for doin)
Summary: In the original I enjoyed roaming the wasteland and checking out new locations even more. I can't do this any more since it crashes so often (as in every 100 yards or so). I have obviously only had this game today, but from what I can tell, it is totally unplayable.
Pros: Fallout 3 is one of the best games I have ever played.
Cons: It's too bad I can't play any more because this GoTY edition is so badly bugged that one cannot wander the wastelands any more.
Summary: so as we were promised the old save files are not fully functional between some canadian versions of the game of the year edition and the stand alone version. so for those who sold their original version make sure to look into this situation before buying this version cause you don't want to replay...
Summary: This would be a fantastic game and immersive experience if it would play properly. Do not expect long playtimes as this game WILL freeze after a few hours, this drops to under an hour on the DLC areas. Shame as this would have easily gotten 5 stars if not for this.
