A beautiful and dangerous wasteland awaits you in this highly regarded post-apocalyptic RPG. Vicious creatures and murderous people lurk everywhere. Luckily for you, real-time combat works great. There’s also a VATS system that allows you to queue up attacks to unleash a deadly barrage with no twitch skills required. You’ll discover mysterious locations and interesting characters in the desolate ruins of Washington DC. Save whatever’s left of it, or crush it into the earth. Your choice.

The sheer amount of what you can o in this game is staggering. a true testament in examining morality and choice, this game is epic. great environments, NPCs with some personality, and engaging combat that was both satisfying and rewarding, it was an incredible adventure

Hands down one of the best games I have ever played. I have put over 300 hours into this game and I don't think it will ever get old. An absolute modern masterpiece that New Vegas could never top.

New Vegas actually toped it terms of gameplay (it's far more tactical) and some RPG mechanics..

I seriously recommend this game to anyone who does not own a copy of it. It's so cheap nowadays that even if you buy it and hate it, you've wasted little - no money. It's an open world, sandbox, first person, RPG. The story is long and engaging, there are a number of side quests which add to the huge size of the game, your actions change your 'Karma' which has an impact on how NPCs view and intercat with your character, so your actions really do change the game!

If you have not played this game, you should put at least 50 hours into it then walk away from it.

One of the best games ever made. Must have. Beautiful world, and just fun overall. Get it, can't stress it enough.

I understand the appeal of this game: a huge immersive open-world to explore, many ways to customize your character, lengthy campaign, you can interact with the NPCs and make ethical choices that influence the storyline. Plus it has an interesting sci-fi setting. However I still found this to be rather boring. Progression is slow and tedious, and there's a severe lack of variety for a game this long. While everything else is done quite well, the gameplay itself is simply not that interesting.

If you are getting games for the Xbox 360 or the PS3 get this game. This game is one of my favorite games of all time. Great game.

Sorry to tell this, but this has been one of the worst games I´ve ever played. The Fallout 1 and 2 were pretty cool, but this one wasn´t, besides, it´s so full of glitches that it looks like a beta or an incomplete game.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys shooters and RPG's. This is an open world game which puts you right in the middle of a utterly destroyed Washington D.C. You will be searching for loot, guns, partners in crime, and bad guys to kill. The only thing that got me down about this game is that after a while, you become almost god like and to me, it gets repetitive and leaves me longing for more.

This game is great! By far my favourite fallout game made yet! A classic! This game is a bit easier then fallout new Vegas but fallout 3 is by far better

I just popped by to say that this is my favorite game of all time. There isn't one thing in here I would change, Bethesda really hit the nail on the head. Now if you don't mind, I'm gonna go neck a Quantum and overthrow a small "republic".

This the best Fallout game to date, the open world, the story, and the game play were really good. Set in a wasteland gave you a lonesome feeling. But most of all the freedom in this game was amazing. A must buy! I really recommend it!

A massive post nuclear role playing game, there is all ways to do and there are all ways enemies for you to turn into a red paste. The story is good. Fallout on a high difficulty can be quite tricky. On the pc you can mod it to add more content or make the much more harder.

Bethsoft's weakest effort on the 360 is still an amazing game, though i much prefer pretty much everything about new vegas, Fallout 3 captures the experience of traversing a post-apocalyptic wasteland about as closely as you can without nuking Washington DC.

Let me start by saying that I really gave this game a chance, I played through the main game and point lookout before I finally gave in and proclaimed... I DON"T LIKE IT!! I understand the appeal the story was very good and there was a lot of stuff to do but the game play is so stiff. I hated the way the controls felt and the constant pausing to use V.A.T.S system just took me out of the experience. The story was good, but for me game play come first.

Massive game , never short of stuff to do , people to meet , and enemies to destroy. Despite some texture and game play bugs , I'd highly recommend a purchase and don't forget to save your progress frequently!

This game is really good, the environment, that first time leaving vault 101 is really great! I played Fallout: NV first (Which is pretty different) so all that cold feeling, that feeling of no order, that cold environment was different to me, beacuse i was used to the Fallout: NV environment. Another thing that puted me a bit down was that it wasn't that diplomatic as in Fallout: NV, there was no reputation or anything like that, but it's beacuse F:NV was the first fallout game i played. :)

The Fallout series is one of my all-time favorites as well. Fallout 3 is such an amazing game! As I've said before, I highly recommend to all of you to play Fallout 3 if you haven't played it yet :) :)

 Shinobi Legions - Sega Saturn
"Underrated Shinobi game." - airzonkworldchamp

 Dragon Spirit: The New Legend - Nintendo Famicom
"Loved the random part about jellybeans. I too love them, wayyyy too much." - candyman88

 Fortune Street - Wii
"I really like this game. It doesn't have the annoying factor of the Mario Party series, and it really does take some intelligence to play this game. I recommend this as a fun, yet intriguing multiplayer game." - dschult3

 Super Paper Mario - Wii
"This game is overrated. I did not have fun with this version of Paper Mario. The story line was "meh" at best, and I thought the challenge was minimal, at best. Well, except for the challenge pipes at the end of the game, which were BORING and long. I've got to say, I was disappointed with this one. As a matter of fact, this game annoyed me." - dschult3

 GoldenEye 007 - Wii
"This remake isn't as great as everyone said it was. The multiplayer aspect was not good, and the online multiplayer was full of trolls. The game play is nice, but it doesn't deserve the GoldenEye name." - dschult3
