ok so ive just completed fallout 3 in 16 hours 30min and i must say its an absolutly brilliant gamebut i have a few complaints as always i was soooooo so so so so so so sooooo pissed i beat the game sooooooo soon a 15-16 hour game made my bethesda? what? are you seriouse? OMG! Elderscroles took me 75+ plus to beat!!!!! and Oblivian? forget about it ill never beat that game :S so yah a bit of a disapointment beating this game in 16 hours.....BUT! im told there are expantions comming out soon 2 i think
i dont get the ending fawkes you absolute *** he can survive high radiation but i must go and get killed cause he refuses? yet hes deeply sorry and would like to help me after i saved him.
i would of liked the main story to be longer i was expecting to pour atleast 25-30 hours into the main story line, after 'dad' dies it feels very rushed everything just sort of happens.
the levels im not entirely sure how important the level system is in this apart from a few key areas like security and um i would like to say sneak but that turned out to be pretty pointless most of the time(i finished the game at level 10).
i found that while going around indoors that the super mutants would run up to you and attack even if they where a few rooms away and there was no way they could of seen you(hence my sneak comment) this made mines a completly useless bit of kit except for one area in the game when you set fawkes free, first thing i did was plant mines outside all the cell doors.
i tested out a few dialog options using a quick save and they dont seem to change the story in any way the characters simply respond differently to you then carry on regardless of what you told them.
why do have to die at the end couldnt fawkes save you? it would of been difficult to just let you continue and finish some of the side quests i had lined up to do after the main story. overall the ending was pretty poor but the rest was brill.
overall i found the game to be Wasome! i was enthralled in the story line all the way through and loved every moment of it, the game certaintly serves to get 'game of the year' unlike that POS far cry 2. The only area the game lacks is in the graphical elemnts, super mutants are very rough around the edges (you can see this on fawkes) and several of the textures appear to be flat although they were obviously meant to have buttons and things on them as seen on most of the buttons for doors.
over all 9.0/10 only cause the game was so dam short! GO BUY IT you wont be disapointed!
