Average User Score: 6.1Oct 7, 2011What a goofy way to build a game. Id has never wowed me with story, but this story is so tacked it blows my mind. The texture pop-in actually made me sick and forced me to take long breaks between attempts at playing. I have NEVER seen anything like it. Turning your head causes EVERYTHING to reload.

It gets a 2 because the gun play is fun, the AI if fun, and driving is fun. I suggest renting it first to see if you can handle to bad design.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Oct 21, 2010I was extremely excited for this game. I loved Fallout 3, and this game gets a HUGE bump for several things, such as increased depth using Hardcore mode and tribes.
However, this game is FULL of issues that irritated me about the first game, but, thanks to a mostly similar experience/game it feels tired and ridiculous. Split second freezes, longer freezes, restarts, and other lame bugs, in addition to an ending to the main quest that ends the game (This one feels 100% as though they figured out they could sell you a $10 DLC to keep playing). This game is a slightly updated version of Fallout 3, with all the same bugs and issues that made Fallout 3 not a 10. And it has been two years.
Again, I really wanted to view this game as a "10" but I feel like I bought a $20 DLC for $60 (same game, same bugs, same letdowns, new story).
The good news is Fallout 3 GOTY bugs have been mostly worked out, and you can play that.… Expand
