Summary: This game is like Grand Theft auto in design, with Mad Max thrown in. Only in this world it looks all beat to hell. bridges with sections missing, empty shells of buildings, and radiation pools, radiation affected animals and occasional people. You start out being born underground in Vault 101. Your mother died giving birth to you and the only person left is your father. Life seems fine but sterile down below, until dear old dad ends up missing with only a note.
Summary: This game is far more than just Oblivion with guns. From the very start of your adventure in the Capitol Wasteland when you crawl from your vault and feel the harsh rays of the sun for the first time in your life, the ruined shell of the Washington Monument focusing into view, and taking down your first mutated or crazy foe, you never stop having a good time. The gameplay was an entirely new and awesome experience for me. I loved the V.A.T.S.
Summary: Ok I want to first start off saying I HATE rpg games but I LOVE Fallout 3...where do I start? This game is just amazing, beautiful graphics, free roam anywhere and its a huge map. I like how the combat style is, you can choose to shoot em up fps style or use the rpg combat engine, which also is pretty cool. I love the cut scenes they do, makes you in the storie even more. I think the controls are easy, like any game they take some getting used to.
Summary: I like the games RPG atmosphere and the fact that you can do anything you want (to a degree)when compared to first person shooters. VATS shooting mode is unique and slows things down so you can target individual parts of the victim with incredible cinematics that are both graphic and dramatic, fun compared to other shoot-em-ups but honestly not as satisfying as say COD:MW2. I found targeting erratic in regular shooting mode with a "too" small pipper.
Summary: If you like games you can play for a while this would be one of those. At first I hated it I didn't think I was going to do very well. But after I got into it and figured some things out the game really has some neat points. There tons of "quests" to accomplish. Some are tied in to others. You do things and get "money" or items in return. There is a lot more to this game than any FPS i've ever played. This definitely more of a role playing game mixed with FPS though.
Summary: Fallout 3 is all in all a decent game filled with interesting enemies, intense battles, but too much to explore. At first I found the game very boring because of all the dialogue and training crap that new players have to go through. After this first hour of torture in the vault the game play starts to get more interesting along with the story.
