Summary: I got wrapped up in this game and it kept me busy for a couple of months of short play sessions every other day. I did get bored at the end when I played the Broken Steel add-on, since my character was a super-hero by that point and could kill most of the enemies he came across.

Summary: You are the Lone Wanderer. Your journey starts off while you are still a citizen of Vault 101. Oblivious to the outside world and to the dangers that await you in the not too distant future you go about the normal teenage rites of passage as you prepare to take on the adult responsibilities of being...

Summary: It took 6 days for the game to get to my house (I went for the free shipping). Unless you live near the processing center, or paid for rush shipping, don't expect to get it the next day.
Pros: It's a great game. The characters, weapons, locations, and enemies are quite interesting. The story is good depending on how deep you immerse yourself. The downloadable content provides nice journeys if you don't feel like playing the main story line.
Cons: It comes with two discs. You need to make sure you have plenty of room to spare on your Xbox 360 hard-drive if you wish to install all of the downloadable content. Expect to use 4 gigabytes. Once you have all the downloadable content installed on your hard-drive, the second disk is no longer need...
Summary: 2008 was the year of great games: Dead Space, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, GTA IV, Metal Gear Soild IV, Left 4 Dead (too many 2's & 4's!) and this game. If Fallout 3 was not great, my game of the year would be Dead Space or GoW 2...but their not.
Summary: What can I say about the crowing achievement of gaming as a whole? Well... It's the crowing achivement of gaming, for one. This game creates a solid narrative, a deep play mechanic, interesting chracters, and a largness that gaming has not felt in a long time.
