I'm running this game on a PC with an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT graphics card with 3 gigs of RAM. If you are running it on a computer as equally good or better I can honestly say you will enjoy this game a lot.
I originally bought this game on the PS3 which so far was a better experience overall. The PS3 had longer load times but there were beautiful specular and reflective visuals which is hard to find in the PC version even when running it on full visual settings. However the PC version has sharper graphics with textures that are a lot more crisp. On the bad side the texture pop-in and object fade-in is very abrupt where as the PS3 version was very smooth. But more importantly than visuals is gameplay. I found that there is almost no lag in the game, the only time I experienced lag was when I used the Xbox 360 controller, which is fine because I prefer the keyboard and mouse anyway. The game crashed on me a few times but that is just my PC and might be uncommon on most PC's but even if you are worried about that you can just quick-save often like I do.
The best thing about this version of the game is it includes all 5 of the DLC's at a great price. I would recommend this game to anyone that likes RPG elements combined with action shooters and a deep story.
I give the game itself a 10 out of 10.
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes oblivion or any elderscrolls games
From the beginning...
After reading the reviews of this game from before it was released, I begged for it for my birthday or Christmas (they're close together) but ended up buying it for myself instead since I saw all the trailers and such and got all hyped-up about it.
I started with a budget-end computer, and had to upgrade numerous things (add a graphics card, get a more powerful processor, etc.) in order to get the BEST out of this game.
The game blew me away from the beginning, and it's so immersive that I would play for hours on end. You get a lot out of the main quest, but my favorite part is the sandbox open-endedness of the game... You might find a building guarded by some robots or mutants, then a few hours later, you come out of it with an insane new weapon or some powerful armor!
It was buggy initially, often crashing to the desktop a few times per hour, so I made sure to download the patches from the official website. These helped with the glitches and other bugs that plagued the game.
Then the DLC's started coming, and those were outstanding too. They let you get some awesome new gear and explore areas that seem to come out of a dream (or nightmare).
Over a year later, I'm still playing it at least twice a week. Replay value? Out the roof.
I can understand why this game made "game of the year". It is an excellent game and very addictive. Highly recommended. Game story makes up for 'not so great graphics'.
This is one of the best games that I have ever played.
It has a great storyline, grafics, and replayability.
I am currently replaying this game for a second time and it is still fun!
I have all of the expansion packs I suggest buying them!
This game is one of the best I have played in a long long while. However, There are a few short comings? I put the question mark because they may not apply to you, and I don't feel that these are enough short comings to rank this game any lower.
First of all, not really kid friends... I wouldn't let anyone under 17ish play. Secondly... To play the game on the highest graphic settings will take a lot of power from your PC...
I have an Intel i5 processor... and 3GB of RAM with a Radeon HD4350 that has 1.5 GB of RAM... so just be aware...
Other than that the gameplay is awesome, and the expansions are amazing. Great buy!
Did not install, reinstall properly. 2nd disk would not install. Game locked up after a few moves. Download patch, no effect.
I bought the original game for ps3 a year ago and fell in love i wanted to mod this and get more of the DLC's i got this and was blown out of the water even though it wasnt as good as graphics its still looks great. The controls are more difficult but that just makes the experience more fun and makes it alot more fun
Excellent game graphics......control with the keyboard took a little getting used to but proved to be a great way to maneuver and utilize special skills. It is frustrating that it doesn't let you use the DLC right away. We ordered and paid for the game online and it was available in store within a couple hours. When we went to pick it up the sales clerk noted that the game was cheaper in store so they credited us back the difference. Talk about awesome customer service!!
A relative wanted this game for his birthday but all the local stores were sold out. In the pinch, I ordered it from Walmart and had it shipped to our local store. Got it inside of 24 hours--about 3 days ahead of the birthday! Fantastic turn-around for a semi-rare item! The game itself was appreciated but nearly as much as the great Walmart service! Thank you!!!!
Bethesda done a great job on this game as with all there games i thought oblivion was the upgrade to morrowind but this tops the all i own on the game on my 360 and love it so seems to me i will love it just as much on my PC love the futuristic back ground it is awesome just hope Skyrim is just as good
Fallout 3 is amazing. I wanted the DVD version and not the downloadable version, and Wal-Mart had the best price. I love this game! so far I have played for about 25 hours and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Exploring, shooting, talking, leveling up, obtaining more skills, etc all help me have as much fun as possible. Exploring the world of a destroyed land and completing missions makes this game awesome. Overall I have only one complaint: the game crashes sometimes. Its completely random. One time it crashed twice in 10 minutes and another time it didn't crash the whole 3 hours I was playing. Just save your game so that when it does you don't have to go far back. Other than that, it was worth the whole $16 I paid for it. I think that the game will take about 75 hours to complete and its as addicting as a game can be.
