5.0 out of 5 stars A great deal. Must buy if you've never tried Fallout 3 before., October 13, 2009
This review is from: Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
This is the 3rd time I've tried Fallout 3, and I must say, the third time's a charm.

I didn't like this game the first or the second time, but granted I gave it only a couple of hours each time. I last bought this game in June, but returned it when I heard about the GOTY edition a few days later.

The GOTY does come with 2 discs, Disc One is the gameplay for Fallout 3, which looks virtually unchanged, except on the actual disc itself where it says "Fallout 3 Game of the Year edition". Besides that, there's little to no difference. Disc 2 has all the DLC, including the last installment; Mothership Zeta.

The instruction manual is a new one for GOTY, and instructs you to install disc 2 to your hard drive, before playing if you've never played Fallout 3, or do not have a current save file. However I didn't read it, and played about 3 hours of disc one before I noticed. I installed disc 2 (About 10 minutes, give or take), and everything was fine. I got the messages in-game letting me know that I have all 5 DLC's unlocked, that my level cap was raised to 30 etc.

After playing this game a good 10 hours, and not even completing half of the storyline, I feel like an idiot for not liking this game the first or second time. I think I was completly hooked when I saw the Washington Monument. It's just an amazing experience.

It gives you the option to choose what DLC you install. You don't have to install all 5, you can pick just one, or two, or all 5.

Here are the requirements.
Broken Steel = 620 MB
Mothership Zeta = 324 MB
Operation Anchorage = 369MB
Point Lookout = 413 MB
The Pitt = 492 MB

Total of 2.2 Gigs. (2218MB)

Go buy this now. If you haven't bought any of the DLC, go trade in your old Fallout 3 disc, and get the GOTY edition.

Thanks for the review! I was curious about how the DLC's worked. So I guess you still have to install the game to the harddrive (the 5 DLC). Can you tell me how much space that requires? Thanks!

I would also like to know as I only have a 20GB HDD. I thought this was all the content on one DVD so I might need to upgrade. Please let us know when you get the chance, thanks!

When I get home I'll check and let you know. From what it looks like, the second disc is only used to install the DLC, and never used again. It also worked on 2 seperate xbox's, so it would appear you can install it, and then sell it. Anyways, I will update this tonight with the space requirements.

EDIT - Forgot to mention, that it gives you the option to choose what DLC you install. You don't have to install all 5, you can pick just one, or two, or all 5.

EDIT2 - Here are the requirements.
Broken Steel = 620 MB
Mothership Zeta = 324 MB
Operation Anchorage = 369MB
Point Lookout = 413 MB
The Pitt = 492 MB

Total of 2.2 Gigs. (2218MB)

Yes you download the 2nd disk to the HDD and you never use the 2nd disk again.

DLC = Downloadable Content. So yeah all DLC require a hard drive because you "download" them to your hard drive.
