Awsome Game! Fallout Fans will love it!
Firstly to anyone new to the Fallout franchise. This is a RPG (Role Playing Game) and a FPS (First Person Shooter). It is a free roaming game, meaning you can go anywhere and do anything! You have several choices of what to say in conversation when you meet new people which can affect the outcome differently and you even have a karma level. Be bad, get treated bad. Be good, get treated well. Secondly, for previous Fallout players. Here are some the improvements, in my opinion. You get to repair your own stuff, so if you have 2 shotguns for example. You can use the parts from the one in poorest condition to repair the other. Very handy when you find yourself in battle or overcumbered. Small bits of plant life have started to grow in the wastelands and these can be used for medical recipes. You can recycle ammo using empty cartridges and the right ingredients. Gamble on roulette, black jack and slots in numerous locations. Storyline is great and the game seems more vast than fallout 3. Companion Mode is very handy and makes battles easier with the help of a friend. AI friend that is! Not sure if Area 51 will be included in the game yet. If not then i'd imagine it will be a likely addon later down the line. All in all 5/5 great fun and it should keep all new players going until Christmas!
