Ok, so I'm a latecomer to this game - but I'm old (and old school) and I don't buy these things until I can get them for $20 or under at the local Game Stop - or steal them from my girlfriend's kids...
This game's graphics and concept blew my mind (at 40, that's hard to do). But the actual gameplay of it made me want to a) punch the TV, b) throw the Xbox out window or c) fall asleep. One fellow reviewer (C+, I think) had it correct, that the game is so non-linear, you can't figure out what's going on - add that to a nightmarish compass/map system (which at first worked well, then I'm sitting on top of some abandoned drive-in looking for Lordknowswhat ?!? W.T.F.?.!.?.!)
I don't have enough ammo for anything - I'm in 6 hours plus in and I have crap for weapons, I really don't give a crap about my RADS. and why exactly did I give a **** about saving Butch's mom? I get caught in 'AutoSave' points that leave me nearly weaponless & defenseless, fighting off three Super Mutants with my dick in my hand.
And another thing - I'm a little tweaked at the game reviewer (specifcally) and Game Revolution (generally) for giving this game such a "hot" review. The review I read was so full of bluster mixed with love that it sounded like Rush Limbaugh talking about sixty-nining Karl Rove with multiple orgasms; mixed with a little bit of an English Literature doctoral thesis, written while completely bonkers on a quart of mushrooms (not that that's a bad thing....).
It's a beautiful game....and I hate it. Sorry.
Yes, and that is a correct usage of "that" and "that's
" right after one another!!!
