2.0 out of 5 stars
So...ever heard of bug testing?, 2 Nov 2010
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars
Because apparently Obsidian haven't. Nor, it seems, have they heard of playability and fun. Although the game plays well by-and-large (almost a clone of Fallout 3 in most regards), it is riddled with errors. These range from disappearing floors, enemies getting stuck inside terrain objects to NPCs attacking your companions because they hit some debris and not being able to access the Pip-boy. Worse, these errors are incredibly common making you honestly wonder if anyone ever bothered to play test. They can, at times, make the game near unplayable.
When the bugs aren't messing with you, the game is quite unreasonably unbalanced in places; you can routinely run into enemies that are immune to most of your damage, outnumber you and can (and will) kill you in a few moments. Even better, if you get hit squads after you not only will they fulfil all the above criteria, they will also find you no matter where you are or how well hidden you are; Sneak 100 + invisibility field+ dark night? They'll ignore all the other enemies to come get you.
All in all, it is worth playing if you don't mind having to try such a horrifically broken game, because shooting peoples heads off is always a good release.
