= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I am seriously late on the xbox-ladder, but I chose this game when i bought the console package from amazon. I played fallout 2 and loved it ages ago, so Fallout 3 sounded a good choice. "Good choice" was an understatement. This is without a doubt one of the best games i've played, both for narrative and gameplay. The roleplay element is both easy to understand and deep. The frustrations you have when realising that skill points were mis-spent is balanced with frequent events where multiple skills can be used. This is great as you are never angry at the "behind the scenes" workings.
Combat is great with a focus on the VATS targetting, which allows specific shots to locations. Or just shoot normally.
With HDMI the graphcis are superb too. There is almost no distance-fade and you can see everything to scale. Awesome.
