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...
I like this game because it is realistic and fun at the same time. Online is a big part of the game but some of the offline stuff is coll too. I am in love with the fast paced shooting online. You can also play with a freind online and other games just don't offer that even most of the “great games” of 2008. On the otherside you can die really easy but you can kill other live players easy too.
Offline isn't that great as far as story goes, the action is about the same just easyer on the count that there not real people. Multiplayer offline is fun but you can't play any levels with another freind without beating the near impossible single player version of it. The cut seens in the game really good well thought out shorts but the breifing is hard to wacth.
This is a good game that is worth the small amount of money you have to give up. Some people are picky about some things so I suggest you rent it first
