Yes, Fallout 3 is a lot like Oblivion (with guns!), but it's a superior game in nearly every way, as it features a more engaging storyline, impeccable presentation, and hundreds of hours of addictive gameplay. While the jury is still out on whether or not hardcore Fallout enthusiasts will accept the game as part of the storied franchise, Fallout 3 is a must-have title for most RPG fans, as well as one of the finest games of this generation.

Fallout 3 offers freedom without sacrificing a focused story. It delivers fantastic combat without forgoing a deep role-playing system. The characters you meet are engaging and oftentimes hilarious without feeling out of place in this harsh world.

Fallout 3 is a profoundly engrossing role-playing game just waiting to reveal its deep, dark mysteries.

I am not really good enough with words to do a complete and concise review, so I'll do more of a mini one:

Gameplay: 9.5/10
The gameplay in fallout 3 is just phenomenal. This single-player RPG plays out is entirely up to you, with a huge, open-ended world to explore (based on an irradiated Washington, D.C.), customizable skills, abilities and "perks" to enhance your character, and even options on how to engage in combat. Fallout 3 combat uses VATS which is turn-based combat scheme by pausing time and pinpointing areas of the body to hit and seeing the likelihood of a successful shot measured in percentages (or of course a more straight-forward real-time combat system can be used). The opportunities on how to play the game are endless. You can even play the game in third person if you'd like!
However, anyone who has played the game will know it can be a little "buggy", I would be lying if I said that I hadn't ended up being stuck inside a wall or something, meaning you have to save often in case this happens.

Plot: 10/10
Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic adventure, where the player emerges from Vault 101 after a devastating nuclear war only to find a dangerous wasteland populated with radioactive mutants to fight, memorable survivors to interact with, and plenty of challenging missions to tackle. It doesn't end there when you soon find out several secrets about the apocalyptic world. If you allow yourself, you can become immersed in the plot of this game.

Graphics 7/10
Fallout 3 can look amazing, in HD I'm sure you'd be impressed (for a game from 5 years ago), however, the animation isn't always smooth, though, and there are occasional camera issues that obscure your view instead of aiding it.

Mutliplayer: I wish/10
If only...

Final Overall Rating: 9.5/10
I loved this game. This is possibly my favourite game of all time. If you try it; you're in for a thrill.
