Fallout 3 is a single player Action Role Playing Game set more than 200 years following a nuclear war. It combines the horrific insanity of the Cold War era theory of mutually assured destruction gone terribly wrong with the kitschy naivety of American 1950s nuclear propaganda.

Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland while you search for your father, and the truth.
