Fallout 3 is an impressive looking game which is saying a lot having come off testing Far Cry 2 and Crysis Warhead in previous weeks. The massive outdoor environments are spectacular, and when using the ultra high visual quality settings, large amount...

If RPG’s are your thing then Fallout 3 is definitely a must play for you. Although not the best RPG so far in my opinion it is by far in the top 5. Bethesda (who also developed Oblivion) sure know how to make one good game. If you’re...

Ok, so right off the bat (Bat. Hrm. I can't stop thinking about that Scout update for Team Fortress 2. The amount of life that Valve has breathed into that game is uncanny. Can you image TF2 right now without all those updates? And all for free too....

Basically Fallout is excellent but that’s not to say there isn’t room for improvement. In all honesty there is a lot I haven’t talked about in this review that would give the conclusion a much lighter tone. The text you will read – be it sad, quirky,...

No one makes a big open-world role-playing game like Bethesda. That’s what the Elder Scrolls games are famous for, and that’s what the company has brought to the post-nuclear-holocaust milieu of Fallout 3. The game takes you to the world...

Action RPGs with amazing exploration and quest choices don’t come along often. Fallout 3 is a great experience and it feels a lot like Oblivion with guns, while this can be a weakness for some people, it comes across as a big strength. The key...

Due to the HD texture pack, future RPGs will have to be compared to the graphics of Fallout 3. But even on high-end systems the performance is not really satisfying. If your graphics card has enough video memory, the HD pack is almost "free” - in...

Imagine our planet after the nuclear holocaust. Thats what the world looks like in Fallout 3. In 2077 the human race bombed itself back into Stone Age and one can be happy about the fact that there are people out there who at least speak a language,...

Whoever thought nuclear war could be so good? Fallout 3 is a riveting first-person RPG experience, with involving quests, a quality storyline and a realistically stark and bleak world. Its been a long time since we can recall being this gripped by...

Anyone who remembers the original Fallout games will probably remember them fondly, so Fallout 3 has a lot to live up to, especially since the latest sequel also happens to have been developed by the same people who brought us the excellent Elder...

Fallout 3 is set in a post-apocalyptic future, 200 years after humanity was all but destroyed by nuclear war. It mixes first-person combat with role-playing game stats, and so plays similarly to the brilliant Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This is...

Fallout 3 is a game that I can easily tell you to go out and get, it is well worth it as it will keep you playing for many, many hours. It’s got quite a bit of replayability as depending on your choices things will move along differently for the...

Just to get this out of the way let me say this now: Fallout 3 is rated M for Mature (age 17+) because of blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes, strong language and use of drugs. If those things bother you then do yourself a favor and stay...

I have always considered myself to be more of a casual gamer. I still haven’t clocked GTA IV and I usually prefer to muck around than to try and unlock an extra costume or cut-scene in other titles. So when I find myself playing one game...
