There are those who had continual faith in Bethesda to produce another masterpiece like Oblivion, and they were vindicated when Fallout 3 impressed the critics. Its sci-fi atmosphere blends beautifully with the battle and explore gameplay, although the game is nothing like its predecessors. Perhaps fans of those old Fallout titles will be turned off by this new style, but a whole new generation of gamers are guaranteed to get a lot of fun out of this one. You'll need to clear some time on your calendar in order to fully appreciate this title's depth and expansiveness, but hey, that's not a bad thing. After all, everyone always complains that games are too short these days, so go pick up Fallout 3!
