Product Description

Fallout 3 from the creators of the award-winning Oblivion, featuring one of the most realized game worlds ever created. Create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of post-apocalyptic Washington D.C. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders and other dangers of the Wasteland. Prepare for the future.

Amazon.com

The third game in the Fallout series, Fallout 3 is a singleplayer action role-playing game (RPG) set in a post-apocalyptic Washington DC. Combining the horrific insanity of the Cold War era theory of mutually assured destruction gone terribly wrong, with the kitschy naivety of American 1950s nuclear propaganda, Fallout 3 will satisfy both players familiar with the popular first two games in its series as well as those coming to the franchise for the first time.

The Story: Vault 101 – Jewel of the Wastes
For 200 years, Vault 101 , a fallout shelter, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best Collector's Edition on the Market. August 9, 2010
By L. Soto
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 1:30 Mins
This review is specific to the items within the Fallout 3 Collector's Edition, and not the game itself.

I currently own more than a few Collector's/Special Editions. Some of these Collector's Editions I have reviewed here on Amazon.com and in my personal opinion none has been a better value for the money than the Fallout 3 Collector's Edition. Just about every aspect of this Collector's Edition is of high quality and does not disappoint.

The first thing to mention is the Vault-Tec Lunch Box that holds all the Collector's Edition items. This has to be one of the coolest items included with any Collector's Edition I have seen. Now I realize this not the only game that has had a lunch box as a Collector's item (or even a preorder gift), but this one makes the most sense. I say this because the lunch box is an item you will actually find within the game itself. Personally I always prefer to get or own Collector's items that have some direct connection to the game itself, and this one clearly does. The artwork on the box is also great with some pretty good detail. Just a few words of warning, the lunch box can be damaged easily, especially the paint-job/artwork. A good idea would be to place it in a safe display area to avoid damage to it.

The next item in the Collector's Edition is the Vault Boy Bobblehead. Again this is another great item since throughout your time playing Fallout 3 you will find Vault Boy Bobbleheads that look very similar to this one. The Bobblehead is 5" tall and it has a nice paint-job.

Next up is one of my favorite items within Collector's Editions, the Art Book. This is an excellent Art Book that is only second to the recent BioShock 2 Art Book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bleak and expansive November 25, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Enjoyed it from beginning to end, and beyond. I didn't realize the main storyline was as short as it was, so I was surprised when I finished the game (high karma ending). I've since gone back to an old save and am taking my time exploring the world. I've easily doubled, maybe tripled my play-time by doing more of the side-quests and uncovering new bits of the map.

The environments are bleak, sometimes oppressively so. The world is designed to be a nuclear wasteland, after all. Traversing the landscape feels lonely and dangerous. The world feels huge and it's amazing to see something off in the distance and just be able to walk to it.

This isn't going to be fun for people expecting a precision FPS, but it does scratch some of the shooter itch. Feels a lot like Mass Effect to me, in that regard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Gory November 4, 2008
By Josh
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I just beat Fallout 3 (PS3) in around 20 hours. I did not mean to.

With Oblivion, I could give a damn less about the story. The game was decent enough, but the story was blah blah blah to my ears.

Fallout 3, the story is actually engaging enough that I ended up only wanting to complete the story missions. And in the end, I think I only completed maybe 3 side quests. And as I said, I beat it in roughly 20 hours. Too short, in my humble opinion.

But, that's just the main quest. And I was an evil bastard the entire way. It was fun, but now I'm going to go through and be different, and once I'm out of the vault, I'm putting the main quest on the backburner and doing nothing but side quests. Looking at the strategy guide (after I beat the game), there seem to be just as many if not twice as many side quests as there are main quests.

I finished the game the first time halfway through level 15. I didn't even have all the perks unlocked, and never did find any ammo for a Fat Man, or fight a Super Mutant Behemoth after that initial encounter with the Lyon's.

I don't know why they offer 3rd person perspective: It sucks. The animation is horrible and the over the shoulder type view just did not work for me. Luckily, 1st person view works just fine.

The felt very immersed in the world of post-nuclear war Washington DC.

The graphics, the gore, the sound effects, the story, the gameplay, were all done very well. Though nothing is perfect: there were occasionally NPCs sinking through floors and as I said, the animation is sometimes just stupid and stiff.

Plenty of guns, not a ton of but a good amount of various enemy types, a myriad of quests and character builds will have me playing for months to come.

It's just fun.
