my first ever 5 star game,
This review is from: Fallout 3 - Game Of The Year Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
A review of the most tremendous single player .....ever.....
Ive gamed since the days of the spectrum, commodore 64 and origional atari.Im 32 and ive seen more games than alot of people and i know what i like. fallout 3 was a game i felt was not for me.I was one of those people that just couldnt get into oblivion so i left fallout 3 thinking adding guns just wouldnt do it for me.I recently borrowed F3 again and hated the slow start and the poor graphics and dull gameplay so i left it for ages.Recently i popped it into my 360 again and after the boring as hell start i was hooked like never before and i really mean like never before.After completing the main game i returned my mates disc and purchased this game of the year edition....bargain and i mean bargain. This game is quite simply the most obsorbing game i have EVER played on any format...ever.After completing most of the missions (not all as i havent found them all) and all 5 of the dlc maps I have clocked up over 72 hours. Once i got past the functional graphics and delved into the dungeon like hunter gatherer aspect i was hooked. Before i knew it my charecter was a powersuited lazer totting gunman and i had an arsenal in my own apartment in the game that would make 80's arnie shiver with fear.
If you buy this pack may i suggest playing the dlc's in this order-
complete main game-awesome and a must
-1 broken steel-raises the level cap from 20 to 30
-2 do operation anchorage-weakest of all the dlc i feel but worth it as to what you get at the end and the story fleshes out alot of what you see and hear in the main game.
-3 the pitt-short but has an interesting moral choice...what will you choose?
-4 point lookout-the best dlc and essential to find all locations i think...the chinese spy mission sticks out alot for me.
-5 mothership zeta-and last but not least...look yes it isnt the best one but after fighing aliens the mutants in the waste land are just irritating flys for you to swat so thats why i would suggest doing this last.
This game will ebb and flow depending on your good or evil choices in the game..or maybe you can walk that fine line.Shooting first will make you evil and it will get the job done faster but will it give you what you want or what you need? also if your well known for being aggressive people will treat you differently.
I cannot praise this game enough and it has been my BEST game ever... my passion for games started when games were on cassete tapes so i know what im talking about.
