Vault 101 - Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you've ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

             This Game is incredible

            | | See all Willsor's reviews (1)

            I got this game beacuse basically, I live in the UK, and my original copy of fallout 3 was one I bought on holiday in the US. This meant I couldn't play any of the DLC. Not a big problem however, I realised it is actually cheaper to trade in my old fallout 3 and buy this version (seeing as the DLC packs are a whopping £7.99 each)..

            anyway, on the the review

            Graphics - Very good. Exceptional. The graphics in this game are some of the best I have seen on Playstation 3. Not exactly on par with the incredible Call of Duty 4, but few games are, and Fallout 3 is still on top of its game in the PS3 world. People look realistic, and the textures on the mutated animals, such as Mole rats, radscorpians, are amazing. There is maybe a little too much gore in this game for me, but it is labelled 18 for a reason I suppose :)

            Sound - There is "music" in this game, but it is not really noticable. They are just small sections of music put in every now and again to help the atmosphere. While not really noticable, it still provides good atmospherical tension throughout the game, and all music fits the area that you are in. The sound effects are brilliant in this game, the wind that blows accross the wastes is very good, and all the unarmed and melee weapons sound very meaty when they hit your target. The guns sound good, and the explosions sound good. What more can I say? The voice acting in this game is good. The entire game has been voice acted, so there are many different people, who say many different things according to what choices you make in game. The dialogue is believable, and it is very well done.

            Longevity - This game will last you a loooong time. For a first time player, all the side quests, getting to know the controls, all the main quests, and all the Downloadable Content will take you at least 100+ hours. If not more. The trophies in this game are also not completely ridiculous, like the LittleBigPlanet trophies. They give you trophies in Fallout 3 for completing quests, picking locks, hacking computers, etc. That is not to say all the trophies are easily achievable, but they do not take forever. The perk system means you cannot have all the perks in one play through. There are 50+ perks, and only 30 levels, meaning you will have to get some on another playthrough. Many of the quests are also open ended, meaning you will have to do another play through to see all the endings.

            Cons -
            FPS does drop on the odd occasion. Runs at about 30/35 most of the time. The game DOES freeze, but for me, not nearly as much as some of you have been saying. When I had a serious play of it the other day. In 5 hours, I had two freezes, One of which, the game got over and carried on. The second freeze did freeze completely, but every game has freezes. No AA, which can get a bit annoying, with all the jagged edges, as I am usually a PC games, but again, few PS3 games have much Anti - Aliasing.

            Overall - 5 Stars. The small amount of glitches and freezing can be overlooked by spectacular graphics, Long amount of game time, and excellent script.

            Oh - A final note to the bad reviewers -
            To "m1llh0use" who said all you do is do a quest, then kill a super mutant is theoretically correct, however, if you are putting it like that, GTA4 consists of kill someone, steal car, do quest, and COD4 is nothing more than, Kil someone, reload, kill again.

            To "ashtree" who said the colours are depressing, I think you are forgetting that this is a NUCLEAR WASTELAND. How is it gonna be happy colours, you must have known that before you bought it, right?

            Please, everyone who reads this, ignore all those 1 star reviews, this game is amazing!
            Thank you.

             Possible issues with save games from Old fallout!

            I traded in my old fallout 3 for the GOTY edition, got it this morning tried loading my game up and...nothing wouldnt load! got a bit worried then checked the forums apparently lots of people have encountered this problem. I found a very simple fix although slightly annoying, the problem seems to affect people that have already reached lvl 20 on their old game, I loaded up an old save from lvl 18 and hey presto, loaded up no problem. lost about 10hr of play no big deal for all the extra content! Hope this helps and spread the word if it works!

             Extremely addictive!!

            A friend of mine recommended that I buy Fallout 3 and since it's really cheap I thought "why not?" At first it took a while for me to really get into the game and I kept wandering around the Wasteland not really knowing where I was going or why, which of course resulted in me being killed by everything from Super Mutants to Molerats. After having put the game aside for a few weeks and then starting to play it again I got the hang of it, and after having leveled up my character I could actually play for hours without being killed, haha! This game is MASSIVE and will bring you hours and hours of fun! The combination of the FPS, with the V.A.T.S. "pause, zoom in and shoot", and RPG is awesome! There are so many characters, so many decisions to be made, so many different places to explore... And I just love how your decisions effect your characters karma and how other characters respond to him/her. Well, my point is - the game may feel a bit difficult or slow at first but give it another chance and you WILL NOT regret it!! After having played Fallout 3 I couldn't help buying Fallout 3 GOTY-edition. Yes, Fallout 3 GOTY-edition does have a few glitches and can lag at times, but for me this does not ruin the overall gaming experience. A real masterpiece!!

             its GOTY for a reason!

            first off, for anyone needing help on this game, id advise going to the playstation forums. someones probably already asked the question before you, if not, the community is great and will help any way they can.

            anyway, the game itself is immense. it may take a few hours to get into it, you feel rather weak until you get past level 10, its all a bit much to take in at first too. but when you get into it and realise its epicness (yes, thats a word) you will be blown away.
            the beauty of this game is the openness. you could complete the story mode and easily miss half of the game.
            regarding this version, the expansion packs are selling for £8 each on the PSN, so this is a bargain! you can even go on the PSN for a trailor on each expansion to see what to expect.

            if i could give 1 peice of advice it would be to take your character, pick a direction, and walk in it! you never know what you will find, but you WILL find something. and it will probably be great!

            get on the internet too, you can find maps with points of interest and guides etc. if your after the platinum for this game its essential.
