    [WF Review] Fallout 3

    Fallout 3
    "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody"

    Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
    Release Date: October, 28, 2008
    Distribution Method: Steam, Gamestop, EBGames, etc
    Price: $49.99 (cheaper depending on region)
    Website: http://fallout.bethsoft.com/index.html
    Game Information: Fallout 3 is an Action Role-Playing Game. Fallout 3 takes place in the year 2277 which is 36 years after the events of Fallout 2. In Fallout 3 you play as a Vault 101 colonist who is meant to repopulate the world. Outside of Vault 101 the world has been devastated by Nuclear Wars (200 years before Fallout 3) and because of this various "Monsters" known as Super Mutants run ramped throughout America. The game basically is a Post-Apocalyptic Survival Game where your fighting other humans and Super Mutants to stay alive and figure out the secrets that await in the Universe.

    Gameplay: You play either in First-Person or Third-Person view, most of the gameplay involves guns but there are also melee weapons and various explosives. A new system known as "VATS" (Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System) is also introduced into Fallout as an automated way to make precise shots against enemies or friendly NPCs. There are also parts in the game where you can receive a pet dog based on some decisions but I'll let you find those out for yourself.

    You do not need to use VAT's but it makes the game much easier and in my opinion nothing is better then blowing off things heads. The game itself is huge, there are hundreds if not thousands of places to explore, various types of landscapes are evident in Fallout 3, most of it feeling like a "Wasteland" or something that has been ravaged by years of war.

    There is also a Karma System, Good Karma is received for doing Good things, while Bad Karma is received for doing Bad things, such as tipping cows Swiftor.


    Multiplayer: There isn't any Multiplayer, but we are expected to receive a Level Editor / Quest maker which could result in "Other" players giving us creative Quests or Story Line upgrades.

    Achievements: There are about one hundred or so achievements in Fallout 3, some of them are extremely easy, but some of them are also very challenging. This is where the game really shrines as certain achievements are only achievable by certain types of characters / aligned characters making it possible to replay the game and still unlock new things.

    My Rating: 10 out of 10, this is by far the best game of 2008 in my opinion, we have all been waiting for Fallout 3 since Fallout 2 ended and we have finally received it. Fallout 3 is one of the best RPG's ever in my opinion and is a definite must have for any Serious or Casual gamer. I recently reached 150~155+ hours of Gameplay and still have things to do on my FIRST character.

    Any sentences referring to "TMN" are referring to myself (WildFire) this is another alias I use when I post my reviews, additionally this reviewhas been shrunk to meet the 10k or less character limit on various forums.

    Nice job again! But can you find any info about all Fallout 3 DLC? It will be more informative if you post DLC reviews here.

    DLC was never included in the original review, while I may be able to produce reviews for each of the DLC's you're going to have to wait for me to review each of them, after all I'm still playing through each to see everything

    I will wait as long as I can (but it doesn't mean I'll wait forever). I still didn't tried last 2 DLC, so I want to know more about them.

    imo Broken Steel and Operation Anchorage and Mothership Zeta are the only DLC's worth while, while the Pitt was interesting I didn't really enjoy it (some people will disagree with this comment), I felt it was boring to play through the whole thing.

    Operation Anchorage is a freaking FPS not a RPG imo, so I don't like it. Broken Steel and Pitt are good additions to original Fallout 3.

    How can you not like the Gauss Rifle?! (Although it is broken somewhat on consoles. I'm sure there are unofficial patches on pc.)

    I liked the game when I bought it but found it bug ridden to the point where I was stuck. Actually have been giving it a retry lately -- still fun and the god damn music is waaaay too catchy.
