"Fallout At It's Best"
Fallout 3, a great return for the series, and for its former developers, Fallout is in good hands.Bethesda gave Fallout 3 in depth RPG elements, by making tons of choices in the game have multiple outcomes which keeps Fallout 3 Re-playability high.This is a great game even for people unfamiliar with the series.
Graphics And Sound: 9/10
Fallout 3's graphics are great, the vast Capitol Wasteland is enormous and even though it's dark and gritty look, it looks fantastic. But that being said, these are great graphics but these aren't the "best" of the best.
I'M also going to talk about the audio/music and sound section of the review. The voice overs in the game are superb, whether it's a crazy raider trying to kill you or a waste lander begging you for water, but some of the VO's are reused and quite common, but you won't really take notice of that, the characters in the game are very different individuals and have there own distinctive feel to them. Now onto the music, with the large amount of 50's music, it adds a very nice feel to the game, where your listening to old music while traveling the half futuristic half mid 50's look to the game.
Story and Game play:9/10
The story of the game throws you into the shoes of a Vault dweller living and growing with your father in Vault 101. You start off with playing a baby, and growing up to your 19, and from there all hell breaks lose. Your father breaks out of the Vault and the vault inhabitants are angered and try to kill where your then forced out into the vast Capitol Wasteland, with nothing but a pistol, and a jumpsuit. It's mainly about you finding your father but it grows into more of a story, where you need to activate a water purifier. Each choice you make in the game has a result in the end. Without spoiling anything, you have a big choice at the end of the game. With that being said, that's where it sadly ends, but even so, the game has a lot of re-playability. The game adds a great original aspect to it, with the V.A.T.S: The Vault-Tech Assigned Targeting System, which allows you to target specific body parts of enemies with a given amount of success rate, with a nice slow motion death sequence after killing your opponent. The game does has its minor glitches, some very serious, but this glitches are mainly located far away, and in places you probably would never go to.
Final Score: 9.5/10
Fallout 3 is a phenomenal game, and has everything a gamer would want, this is a definite buy, a sure crowd pleaser for many. I hoped you enjoyed my review, thanks and enjoy the game.
