Should be a 10
When I fist bought this game, honestly, it was because of the "cool guy with a gas mask" on the front cover. Little did I know about the fantastic game that awaited me. When I got home, i tested the game, worked great, then went to play COD. After a few hours I glanced over at the shelf and saw Fallout 3 staring at me, so, naturally, I popped it in. When I started to play I was confused and frusterated at the lack of FPS elements in the game, immediately shutting it off. Oh how a mistake. A few months later I gave it another try and played for a few hours. When I got out of the vault, my mouth opened in awe. The few games I had had before where Call Of Duties and other fps franchises, there was very limited what I could do in-game, but with Fallout 3, I was amazed at the attention to detail, the sheer scale of the game itself, making Post-Apocalytic Washington D.C. look like a paradise of gaming. When I first heard the jolly 40's tunes over the radio on my Pipboy 2000, I was confused, not knowing that this style of music would later define the game, as well as make me love the style of music. I played the game for hours upon hours, with COD sitting on my shelf gathering dust, and Fallout became my favorite game of all time. The visuals are incredible, especially for 2008. I completed the game over 5 times and it never gets old. I could play this game over and over. Then when I bought the dlc's, I was amazed at the story and the fact that there were so many things to do, so much to explore, so many quests to complete! This game completely changed me forever. I had the experience of a lifetime playing this game, and I'm sure you will too. It changed me so much, but not because of the incredible graphics and gameplay, but because of the heart-touching story. Every now and then, I pop it in my Xbox 360. It still holds up even after 4 years. I honestly think everything Bethesda did with this is a masterpiece. After you finish the game, your mouth will just drop. I loved this game. And you will too.
When i saw it i though oh my another dal game, when i first played total 500hrs of examining & doing all quests its fun for those who love exploring/ evil/ good. & Using .V.A.T.S. system.
Its Oblivion with guns
This game is a steal for 3 bucks! Its a good enough game to be sold for full price! Its got an open world vibe kinda like Oblivion and the way you talk and interact with people is similar to Oblivion. They added a persuasion and intimidating speech thing which makes conversations more interesting when you succeed at them of course. Firing a gun is a lot of fun in Fallout 3. You feel satisfied when you shoot off the limbs of you enemies and the story is engaging and intense and if your a hardcore gamer or even a casual gamer this game is for you.
Almost infinite possibilities.
Fallout 3 is an amazing experience. Most people will struggle at the beginning but once you are out in the open world and have freedom the game is amazing. It will let you play the way that you want without putting too many rules on the player. You can side with whoever you want and that will change everyone experience. Definitely worth playing for anyone that like shooters or RPGs
this is my favorite game of all time!!!
I'm just gonna point out that I compare every game I buy to this masterpiece of a game. It's 2012 and occasionally I pop this one in. It's got great music (GNR!!!), great combat, great characters, and even after 4 hours of playing, you realize that there is a whole bunch more ahead of you. No multiplayer, which is great because it would just ruin the entire point of playing one of the greatest games ever made. Bethesda, you rock and I cross my fingers that Fallout 4 stands up to the expectations that I had before New Vegas. (P.S. that game is really good!!!)
Probably the best 360 game next to red dead
i preordered this game about a month b4 it came out back in 2008. since then, i have been playing it regularly. there is so much to do and so many different ways to play out your character. there are hours worth of side quests, let alone the main quest which is phenominal. i have played through the game 8 or 9 times now and i can say hands down this is one of the top 3 games ever made for the 360. if you are a true fan of rpgs this is just a must have. it is worth at least 5 play throughs plus the DLCs which are decent but not anywhere near as good as the main quest. BUY THIS GAME.
BETTER THAN NEW VEGAS!!!
This was the 1st game I got on my xbox 360 and its better than New vegas i'm not saying new vegas is bad its okay........................................................GET FALLOUT 3!!!!!!!!!!!
this is a fun game but not better than oblivion. but thats just my opinion so keep going down the review list.
One Word: AMAZING
Only gonna say one word: AMAZING, BREATH TAKING, AND FULL OF GORE AND VIOLENCE
I want to start off with the gameplay. There are many many weapons.(Pistols,Rifles,Baseball Bats,Portable Nuke Shooter,for example) The way you shoot is like a first person shooter or if you prefer third person shooter. The melee weapons attack like oblivion minus the shield in both perspectives.In combat there is a targeter called VATS where you can aim at a certain body part. Some parts you target do extra damage. Each attack is bloody mostly when you take one of the body parts off. Next the storyline is amazing! Its during the aftermath of nuclear war between the U.S, China and Russia.You are a person from a vault to help shelter citizens when the bombs fell. After you escape you search for your dad and end up getting caught between a war between mutated humans,The U,S shadow government, and the Brotherhood of Steel who try to save the remaining humans. The graphics are amazing for its time as is the sound. So if you are a real hardcore gamer buy this. You well never get tired of it.
