PC Gaming has never been easier

12th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards Winner: Outstanding Achievement in Original Story and Role-Playing Game of the Year Vault 101 - Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec® engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you've ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FO3- Anyway You Want To Play!! I have been playing the Fallout series since they all came out. I am still playing Fallout 3 because of the ease to play. On the PC, there are a couple of issues you meed to take care of to play the game, but it is easily remedied. After that, the game, modded or not is easily and thoroughly enjoyable. It can be ended 9,999 different ways. (I'm on my 5,227th different way) After playing it 50 or 60 times un-modded, I never got tired of playing. I still to this day play it that way sometimes. I would recommend this for ages 17 and older in my opinion, that is. NC-17.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy wow awesome at first i was skeptical of the game, originaly because i didn't have any respect for the elder scrolls or their style of gameplay, story is amazing, gunplay is perfect, just hard enough to keep it interesting and dlc's are amazing!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great RPG/FPS Combo Awesome game. Fallout's first 3D shooter, you fight your way out of the vault and into the destroyed face of the world. Using either melee weapons, guns, or laser weapons, you destroy the enemies in your way while finding your father who left the vault when you were a kid. It's an FPS is skills and levels and various equipment you can add. Somewhat dated now as it's on Bethesda's older engine, but it's still a decent looking game. Great enemies to fight with some pretty awesome weapons, a pause-and-aim on body parts (VATS) mode, limb crippling, and lots of gore. Great story, some people had problems with the ending. The package deal with the expansion is even better.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work with windows 7 I bought this hoping to just have a game to keep me occupied while away at college. However it does not work with windows 7, there are some little ways to get it to work but none worked for me. I have played the game on xbox and loved it which is why I didnt give it a 1 bar because it is a good game just make sure your operating system is not above Vista!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fallout 3 - Bethesda's done it again Fallout 3 GoTY(e) is one of the best games i have ever played. For 2008, the graphics were splendid (although nothing we hadn't seen before), the sound quality is great and every effect is in its place (i can hear someone attacking from behind me and easily tell what weapon they're carrying based on the sound alone), but where Fallout 3 really shines is the quality and lasting appeal. Fo3's excellent quest design, open-ended map layout and overall splendid RPG elements make this a game for just about any RPG fan, and it can easily hook FPS and sim-game fans as well. The add-ons contribute a ton to the replayability - who wouldnt want to replay an invasion of an alien mothership, or the invasion of Alaska? The modding community is sterling and within days i was making my own mods in the Garden of Eden Creation Kit. Fallout 3 is an unmissable adventure, i just hope you have a lot of time on your hands. Bethesda knows how to rope you in. ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Game I've Ever Played. Period. I'm making this review after having played Skyrim, with all of its DLC's as well as many other games Bethesda and Obsidian Entertainment have created, including some of my other favorite games/series from different companies. This game is still by far, the best game I have ever played. Period. -They nailed the Post-Apocalyptic setting, I couldn't possibly imagine a better one myself. -Creating your character is interesting in the way the game presents it to you, rather than "HERE'S THE SCREEN TO MAKE YOUR CHARACTER, HAVE AT IT!" It's also highly customizable in the way you can change the facial features. -The Storyline is interesting, and the karma system is great to have alongside with it. Should you choose to be Evil, Good, or Neutral, this game will truly make you feel like one or the other. -The guns and armors are awesome; However, I wish they had known how to scope with the guns during the time they were making this game like they did in Fallout New Vegas. -I feel the VATS system is Overpowered, but without it, the game would be entirely different, and much, much harder to play. If you want the most Overpowered character, go with the assassin. -If you are a zombie-killing fan, (Call of Duty: Zombies, anybody?) you will enjoy killing feral ghouls a lot, maybe even the super mutants. -All of the DLC's are special/different in their own way. The Pitt, being my favorite. A lot of people just play the game to kill stuff or run around through quests just to finish them without capturing the story of the DLC, during this time of war. -There are Glitches/Bugs/Crashes, but the fact that you are willing to come back to the game the second they happen just shows how much the game pulls you in. Nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean you can't come close to it. -The Graphics WILL be improved in whatever the next Fallout game will be, knowing that Bethesda will be using the Creative Engine, as they did with Skyrim. -THE GAME IS ONLY $10 NOW. -What ultimately drew me to the conclusion as my favorite game of all time, was the mission where you have to obtain a Stradivarius violin for this woman. I'm a violinist myself, and when I was able to play this game while hearing classical music-tunes that I know, it personally made me truly appreciate this game. If you truly want to play this game, do it patiently, and curiously. This isn't a shooters game where you run around and blow stuff up randomly; Although, you could do that, but that makes the game boring. There's a story behind all of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Unique game, even comparable to Oblivion! A very well designed game, that I myself, has compared it to The Elderscolls series.I Recommend this game to anyone who is interested in the Freeroam,"DO what you want to, when you want to" kind of game.
