Summary: Honest - Game tries really hard to grab you in to game well there's a lot talking choices when you are speaking to someone A,B,C,D, and E to be made well not sure if like this or not. Gameplay seems all right nothing seems to stand out so far game controls are smooth work well. Lock-ON body parts like other Fallouts and some times it's seems like you are force use this or Die period. Some times world seems to empty and dual at times.
Great service, Great game, Not so great performance.

Summary: The game arrived a full week before the estimated delivery date, which was a nice surprise and the game itself is fantastic. However there are some serious problems with lag, glitches and freezing. I have had to reset my PS3 more than once and depending on how much action is going on in the game (explosions, number of enemies on screen etc.) The game's frame rate drops significantly and the game is notorious for having this issue.
Summary: This game is excellent and really enjoyable, you could lose hours exploring pst apocolyptic Washington D.C. However; It may have been as my game save became corrupted but this game did tend to freeze every hour or so later in the game. As I said may of just been a faulty disc but have read this has happened before on the PS3 version. Very rewarding game otherwise and worth this risk for the cost.
Summary: The game is alright and very large but I think having played Skyrim before this game soured the experience as the two games are carbon copies apart from story and setting. It is a good game but Skyrim being so good and then going back to play an earlier Bethsda game I think was a poor move. If you like highly customisable RPG this game is good however if you have just played or are playing Skyrim I think you will be slightly let down.
Summary: I enjoyed both the game's overall setting, story, missions and gameplay immensely. However, Fallout 3 GOTY is still way too bug-ridden on the PlayStation 3. Thinking of the huge amount of time Bethesda had between the game's release in 2008 and me writing this review in June 2012, it is obvious that Bethesda can't fix the game's software engine (which is very bad) or does not want to fix it (which could be considered worse).
Summary: ...at which point it gives you trouble due to freezing. Truly, I love this game. I love the massive wide-open spaces, the hundreds of little side-quests and places to investigate, I love the interaction, the fighting model and most of all I love the atmosphere created when outside at night, inside a broken-down old building or creeping stealthily around a ruined city.
Great game, the GOTY edition freezes regularly though

Summary: First off, I gave this 3 stars purely because the GOTY edition is prone to freezing. It's a well documented problem (just google it) though it doesn't seem to affect everyone. I never had this problem with the regular edition but it happens in this to a very annoying regularity (particularly during the point lookout expansion) so be warned. I have the original but bought this version because it comes with all the DLC which makes it cheaper than buying them seperately.
Summary: as stated before in countless reviews - the game itself is incredible. a vast open-world space were you can travel anywhere, lots of marked/unmarked quests and many more things to explore. i already had the standalone version in possession when i learned that the one i got isn't compatible with the DLC's - that was quite a nuisance .. so i decided after many months to order the goty-version.
Summary: Game itself is excellent. However, at least this PS3 GOTY edition hangs quite often after couple of hours and does not seem to run smoothly overall. The further you advance, the worse it gets.
Summary: To be concise and truthful I'll say this - this Game of The Year Edition is definitely a crude diamond. Why ? You'll ask, well because in fact it does include all the additional expansions and You get it as a bundle but...Yes there is a BIG but. I played the game before on Xbox 360 and, yes there are some graphical differences but they are not as substantial as many game magazines point out, the game still looks great and runs very well for most of the time.
