Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am old enough to have played the original game when it first came out in 1997. I was a great fan of the series that followed and, thus, was very eager to get my hands on this latest installment. In a short sentence: FALLOUT-3 is A DREAM COME TRUE! And now the dream is complete.

It is a cRPG game in which the player can alternate between the First and Third person perspective roaming a world comparable in size with OBLIVION. The action has moved from Vault 13 and Southern California to Vault 101 and Washington, D.C. and the story brakes away from the previous bloodlines. However, the atmosphere of the original has been maintained and its scents sharpened: veterans will find it fitting like and old glove - whereas the new gamers are in store for a bag of pleasant surprises.

The graphics are wonderful, the guns detailed and the environments highly interactive. Short of a screenshot, imagine what would HalfLife-2 would look if released today. And similar to HL2, FALLOUT-3 does not require an...ubercomputer to run smoothly. Once you see a NPC move though, you understand where the corners were cut.

Character customization is carried out in great style using the new and improved PIP-BOY at the beginning. You exit the vault and the harsh reality of a world that barely survived annihilation slaps you on the face. Adapt or perish.

The main storyline is there to be followed but FALLOUT-3 offers the greatest number of alternative choices I have ever encountered in a game! There is always a great number of paths to follow in order to achieve any goal - but every choice comes with a consequences tag. This is common feature of most classic cRPGs but in FALLOUT-3 I saw it implemented like never before. If nothing else, this sends replayability through the roof.

I originally bought Fallout 3 back in 2008, and played it about 3/4ths of the way through. I loved it, but it's a huge game, and it's hard to find enough time to finish a game like this if you explore every possible area and do every side quest as I like to do.

Fast forward to 2011. While looking for a new game for my PC, I saw the Game of the Year Edition (GOTYE), and noticed that it included the five add-on packs for the game, priced for under twenty dollars here on Amazon. If memory serves me correct, the add -on packs to the game were each around twenty dollars when first released. So, it was cheaper for me to buy this GOTYE than to try and get all of the add-ons.

If you've played either Fallout 1 or 2, Fallout 3 is very much the same, and I mean that in a good way, even though it's produced by a different company (Bethesda rather than Interplay). It's added new tweaks and improvements, but these are more evolutionary rather than revolutionary, and again, that's a good thing because if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Basically, this is a single player game where you are a vault-dweller in a post nuclear apocalyptic world, and after your father leaves the vault, you follow after him. I won't say any more about the plot, but it grows tremendously from there. Along the way, you can help or hurt many non-player characters (you can play as basically good, neutral, or evil, and each has a somewhat different play experiences, particularly between good and evil), and the game is very non-linear. You also have a great deal of latitude on your play-style, although the game revolves around combat.

The game comes on two DVDs ... the first one has Fallout 3, while the second one contains the five add-on packs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game. One of the best ever. October 17, 2009

Fallout 3 is just an amazing game in every respect. If you're familiar with Bethesda's other RPGs, you will have a fair idea of what to expect. It is an open world "sandbox" RPG with elements of a FPS. When it was released a year ago, Fallout fans somewhat derisively called it "Oblivion with guns". Truth be told, on the surface, it is a very fair assessment of this game, but that's not a bad thing at all! It's definitely a similar kind of game, but the setting and humor are quite unique. At no time does it feel like any other game you've played before, other than the fact that it's got Bethesda's signature style all over it. There is so much to do in this game that you can easily get as much or more playtime as a normal game without even touching the main storyline quests. When you take into account the 5 add-on packs that come with this GOTY edition, the "bang to buck" ratio is increased quite a bit in favor of the bang. The add-on packs alone retail for the price of this package. If you already have Fallout 3 without the add-ons, you may as well get this edition and sell your original. If you don't already have Fallout 3, then there is absolutely no reason to pass on this edition of the game. It was named Game of the Year for a very good reason. In fact, it's easily one of the best games of the last 10 years.

I had some trouble getting started on a Windows 7 computer with an i5 processor. At first I thought the problem was W7, but it turns out that F3 does not work well with more than 2 cores. Here is the fix:

Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
Find the line:


change it to:


Add another line after it and insert:


This worked for me.

I'm only getting started but the game is beautiful so far ... it's amazing to be IN the vault, rather than viewing it from the top down.
