Fallout 3 is a legendary action RPG, which continues the Fallout franchise. Players dive into the events held 36 years after Fallout 2's ending. The game is set in the post-apocalyptic open world known as the “Capital Wasteland.” According to the storyline, by 2277, the whole familiar world finds itself devastated. The cataclysm is the consequence of the nuclear war of 2077 between USA and China. The only people left on Earth are lucky ones, who managed to stay alive on the surface, and those, who made their way to the warehouses provided by Vaul-Tech (like the main character). In the very beginning, the protagonist wakes up inside the Vault 101. His only aim is to find his father who left the warehouse some time ago. On his way, he will contact other survivors (both gangs and singles) and explore entire restoring areas of Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, and Maryland. The game offers countless progress opportunities, so the gameplay is overloaded with various features including types of customization, numerous conversations with NPC’s, side quests – everything that an average player is going to face.

Excellent, even for a game that dates from 2008 I'm very eclate:) The story aspires to us integrally in the atmosphere and we do not see the hours past DeSUS!

a good game in all the desolate lands are populated by supers mutants, Centaurs, mercenaries, etc............. full of monsters of all kinds! Should it take this game when it is below 10 euros even if the 4 is out? Yes!

Fallout 3 is unfortunately not compatible with current versions of Windows, which is why it crashes after 5 or 10 Minutes, which has a fairly negative impact on the Enjoyability of The Game. In itself, the Game is not bad, but I would advise against buying it yet and reaching for the Successor instead.

CAUTION: GAME INCOMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 10. "Require: online play requires log-in to games for Windows-Live" and CA it can no longer be installed on Windows 10 since it is XBOX game that replaces and that it is integrated with Windows 10. would-although steam indicates that the game is incompatible Windows 10.

Really need to say something? This fallout shines for a lot of things and deserves its very positive opinions. If you have not yet played this fallout and even if you have never made fallout of your gamer life. I strongly advise you to go and buy it and test it although I much prefer the new Vegas campaign. This Fallout 3 is still great.

Fallout 3 is a really good Game! The Graphics are good, the Gameplay too! But one Thing annoys me ..., you play the Game too quickly as there are next to no Side Quests and the Main Story is also a very short one. I know you can still buy DLC's, but I find the DLC's too expensive for a few new Things ... Despite Everything, the Game is good, but I Think it should be cheaper than Fallout New Vegas!

Fallout 3 is horny! The Game just makes you feel Good. But that a lot of People who don't like the Game just because they can't start it is just stupid. Apparently, most Steam users have an IQ Value below room temperature. You probably don't know that you can just watch a Tutorial on YouTube to see how you can solve the Problems you have with Fallout. So again for the People who don't have the Game yet, but who plan to buy it and read all the Reviews: Don't Listen to the Guys, but just buy the Game and fix it afterwards. Easy.
