Fallout 3 (PS3)
Advantages: Just a great game
Disadvantages: slow start to the game and quick ending after you finally get the good equipment
Ok so a shocking headline I know but I had to think of something.
Fallout 3 by Bethesda is actually the first Fallout game i've played. I had heard friends and other talking about it when it first came out and took a slight amount of notice to their ramblings but didnt really take note until much later.
I noticed a copy for sale at a local retailer games store second hand for £15 at the time and remembered that people had fond words about it. So I thought i'd give it a whirl.
God i'm so glad I did, however I did almost quit after 10 minutes of gameplay.....
First off you start in an underground fallout shelter which is apparently sealed off from the outside, however this isnt the bad part.. You have to partake / watch some intro sequences that basically show you growing up in the shelter and do a little demo type getting used to the controls type tasks between FMV's . This is all well and good but it's just not my cup of tea so after 10 minutes and using a BB gun to kill a few roaches I wasnt imediately taken back by the game... I really did nearly switch it off and throw it away. However the game doesnt really start until you get outside the bunker or fallout shelter and start in the wastes on your own.
I love post apocalyptic type games and movies so once I got into the game properly it really does get far far better.
I wont go into the story as to spoil it for some but you get the usual weapons and some not so usual ones. You are free to roam despite the story that you can follow in your own time. The combat is quite difficult unless you use your VATS system which is something you get right at the start, but I guess its a nice ballance because you cant use the VATS all the time and its needs to have a bit of difficulty otherwise it just wouldnt work.
I do like the basic story however but I wont mention it here. But the sub plots and tasks make it for me. Collecting items solving problems killing raiders selling guns and ammo etc etc its a really good game all round.
The only reall thing that narked me a liitle was that you kinda scrape by a living so to speak in the game all the way through. Selling off looted goods and the likes with slowly getting better equipment and armor and guns etc building your character up until you finally get some great armor and kit and stock up on ammo and guns etc . ONLY for the game to end in the next mission.
It would have been nice to have had the chance to have more missions and levels after you get to this point. Or for you to be able to get better equip earlier in the game.
However that said its still a good game.
Defo worth a purchase now that its available cheap just about everywhere.
Summary: all round a good game and worth the playing time
