Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
the setting, plot, and fighting suck. what? you want me to explain? oh very well
the plot is boring and i usually fell asleep during the cutscenes. the characters arent really interesting either. mabye the fighting system is decent! read on if ye dare
you consist of three lame attacks and three modes which actually can be cool as it adds to the depth of the game but the fighting is still boring and inconvienient.
the evironment does not change once during the course of this game. all it is is one continual glowing orange floor and wall thats supposed to be something called "ECO". just an excuse to be lazy with their setting... jackasses.
