Conclusion: Oh and the expansions are SWEET! Adding about 3-4 hours of play each (and giving you some pretty awesome weapons and armor in the process to!)! My ONLY concern is for new players who might get stuck at the beginning, I've seen it happen a lot... My advice?
Excerpt: The Good : Highly interactive and atmospheric post-apocalyptic RPG. The Bad : Perhaps VATS isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Some camera issues. The Ugly : Nothing particularly ugly about this release.
Excerpt: There are quite a few racing games out in the market, but hardly any of them cater towards new fans of the genre. For every short tutorial there’s an advanced mechanic that involves some slight tweak to each car that allows it to go faster then ever before.
Excerpt: Fallout 3 is a fantastic game that almost manages to fulfil the sky-high expectations. The legendary status of its predecessors hadn’t only managed to create heightened discussions between fans and passers-by, but also nostalgia-driven impossible demands.
Excerpt: The controversial successor to a short yet venerable gaming dynasty, Fallout 3 generated a lot of backlash amongst older fans. Frankly, there’s a lot of wiggle room as to whether or not Fallout 3 constitutes a worthy sequel (whatever that means) to the Fallout series.
Excerpt: To have ambition is one thing, but to have the skill to carry it out with any degree of success is another. As those who have played any of their past output well know, Bethesda are a highly ambitious company that don’t do things by the numbers.
Summary: " Point Lookout " for Fallout 3 is a fantastic DLC pack by any standards. It’s bigger and longer than the previous three packs, and has more of an emphasis on exploration and roleplaying than them too.
Conclusion: The more I play Fallout 3 , the more I consider it to be a “functional” game. It includes a big world with lots of places to explore and lots of enemies to kill, but there isn’t a lot to draw you in.
