5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the Year? Game of the Decade!, 20 Dec. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fallout 3 - Game Of The Year Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Ignore the 1-star reviews. Of the three, one has failed to install the expansions, one has run out of hard drive space (not Bethesda's fault), and one has an obvious bias for EA.

Fallout 3: GOTY is a must have for anyone who has played Fallout 3... or even if you haven't. However, I must stress, if you own Fallout 3 and any of the expansions already, it works out cheaper to download the packs (800 MSP each) than to buy this again. The 5 expansions come on a second disc which you must install first, exactly as if you downloaded the expansions from the Marketplace. They're not built-in to the game.

If you are new to Fallout, the series started out as an isometric RPG. Fallout 3 has departed from this, with a first-person perspective. If you have played the more recent Elder Scrolls games (Oblivion and Morrowind), then you should recognise the style immediately.

Set in and around a post-apocolyptic Washington DC, Fallout 3 puts you in the role of the Lone Wanderer. Born in Vault 101, you leave at age 19 to find your father, and ultimately try to save the 'Capital Wasteland' from the Enclave.

Operation: Anchorage places you in a simulation of the Chinese invasion of Alaska, and adds new weapons and equipment.

The Pitt gives you the chance to visit Pittsburgh (or, at least, what's left of it), to break up a slave ring.

Broken Steel changes the ending of the game, allowing you to keep playing an extension of the main storyline. Maybe more importantly, it adds new perks and raises the level cap to 30.

In Point Lookout, you can travel to the mysterious swamp-like seaside town in Maryland for a eerie, open-ended adventure.

Mothership Zeta sees you get abducted by aliens, where you can get your hands on powerful new weapons as you try to escape your captives.

You have to get your hands on this game if you haven't already. Game of the Year is an understatement. This is perhaps the best game of the decade.
