Well this post will get some responses, but I'm sorry. I heard so much about about this game called FallOut 3. I was and I still am still am gravely disappointed. I love RPG's, ever since Zelda I played any that I found that the story was entertaining. Final Fantasy 7 was the next game that just blew me away and I tried some of the lesser RPGs that came inbetween the Final Fantasy installments. To be honest, I never liked the sci-fi RPG's as much. I played some of those "Star Wars" Old Republic ones, but only the demos. I was never moved to buy one. The Xenosaga series for PS2 was my first real sci-fi RPG I did play and like. It wasn't great but it was fun and entertaining to play. The only sci-fi game that I liked so much I couldn't put down was the Mass Affect series. I can't wait till the third one comes out!
|One of the best RPG's ever!|
To stay on the subject... FallOut 3 is no where as good as Mass Affect to me. I played this game as far as to the point that you are out the Vault and reside in a neighboring town with some side quest you must have to do to move on. The character control options or the various menus you have to know how to access was a real bother. I see why games like final fantasy and even Mass affect keep it simple. Even changing a weapon from one to another was a pain at first. I have a grasp of the controls now but finding quest can be a real puzzle. Let me explain, in most RPG's finding the person may be the hard part. Once you have that info it's just the challenge of earning the the prize in battle. Or it's in reverse... finding the person is easy but finding where something is hidden is hard. If you have the combo of it's hard to find both things in a fantasy RPG... then these type of side quest are near the end of the game with a item that is worth the headache. I see finding stuff to hard hard right away with this game. The battle is also haphazard with you trying to figure out where a enemy is located. I was not aware that I was playing CALL OF DUTY. The musical feel of this game is another annoyance. Too many games have been stuck in the 50's area. For that reason alone it made playing Bioshock a little less fun then I would like. In Bioshock's case at least the battles was sweet. I know I haven't scratched the surface of this FallOut 3 yet. Perhaps if I get half way through I'll find that sweet spot like I did with another game I did not like much till mid way through. Halo 3 ODST. I wasn't feeling this game ether and then the battles became more fun and I had better support around me. I will still play FallOut 3 since I paid money for it. I'm just glad I only paid only $20.00 for it.
