The French Refuse to Review Fallout 3

French magazine CanardPC feature a five pages article on Fallout 3. What should have been a review is actually a preview (the real review will come once Fallout 3 is released in Europe) because, it seems, Omar Boulon has had quite a hard time playing the game in proper conditions. Here are some excerpts... (Fallout 3, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Wow they just made the game sound awful.

I was afraid that the "consolification" of the series would dull it down to console standards..

I hope it is still a fun game regardless of whether it will make fans of the series want to burn Bethesda to the ground. Younger kids will enjoy it because they will not know what they are missing and what should have been in the game.

But it sounds like we older gamers got the shaft without the benefit of lubing us up first.

It sounds to me like the reviewer ate a bad baguette and is angry at the world. There's no way this game isn't going to be solid.

Either way, this "feature" that retarded teenagers and moronic fans of "self-confident but still crappy" violence will love (and even then, not beyond the 10 first minutes), guarantees that you will avoid using the targeted shot system at any price. It sucks, it's ugly, it's not funny, it's long et absolutely useless.

thats pretty harsh right there! maybe french people dont like that type of game.

les francais sont pas mal wack comparé aux Quebecquois j'arrive pas a les catch ben ben.

Je vais dans un autre thread avec my VITESSE EXTREME!!!!

ZombieNinjaPanda  +   2511d ago
So what
I was getting from this article is that..the game sucked?

I can't believe thats true, we heard so many good things about it :S
badz149  +   2511d ago
I think so too
but I got my impression from the live feed of a guy playing the game (pirated one) last week! I went to watch because I have zero intention to buy this game anyway. but OMG the game is BORING as hell! I don't know about oblivion but if oblivion is anything like Fallout3, I'm glad I didn't play it! the pace is too slow, the shooting and that special targetting thing got boring so fast (mind you, I was just watching) and graphically, it's like a couple years old game! plus, there are (not so)giant enemy crabs in the rooms! OMG!! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!! pfft...boring! I thought GTAIV was boring but Fallout3 exceeds it that department single handedly!

A Frenchmen
was the city planner for DC
he was the one that made it a pin wheel design! If you dont know what im talking about pull out a map of DC!

maybe they dont like to see their work destroyed by a nuke!
Imallvol7  +   2511d ago
Have been playing the game for about 2 hours and I am done . . .
It's literally like Oblivion with guns. However, I do enjoy Fallout 3 much better. The presentation is awesome and the story is good. I just do not like these games. There is too much talking and all the choices you have to make about making weapons, what your going to wear, what attributes you want, what you want to look like, do you want to trade, blah blah blah just gets overwhelming to the point where its not fun.

Don't get me wrong, I KNOW people will love it because people loved Oblivion and I didn't. It's more of the same. Graphics are awesome, sound is awesome, and presentation is awesome. That VTS system or whatever its called is really neat too!!!

However, the game is too slow paced and bloated for me. I have no desire to talk to everyone in your stupid village just to get some info.

If you were an Oblivion fan though, get ready. Your going to love it! I think . . .

Oh, and shame on Bethesda for trying to influence his review!!

Meh.. what do you expect from the French? It isn't RSV so they won't love it.

The same we would expect from the english...

No, seriously, your comment is stupid...

I don't think his comment is stupid. Go Shovelbum!

XerockX  +   2511d ago
easily influenced?
XerockX  +   2511d ago
holy crap!
that was friggin' harsh.
After oblivion and morrowind, I'll blindly trust bethesda. I loved them both.
Hope I don't feel the same way this guy does.
but It does make me wonder why they had to censor his screen shots...

and to those of you who downloaded the torrent ......seriously...shut the f*ck up and go back to jerkin' off to japanimation in your room in your mom's basement.

How can you talk sh*t about something you stole.
Imallvol7  +   2511d ago
because I didn't, my friend did. lol.

angry much?
Zerodin  +   2511d ago
The French government refuses...
...to give classification to a game that glorifies the usage of soap.

the reviewer is a fallout purist, pretty much like some elders scroll purist with oblivion
SketchCA  +   2511d ago
Don't listen to this guy
It may turn out to be a good game. At least give it a chance. Seriously, who listens to the french anyway lol.
krakdol  +   2511d ago

Seriously, who listens to the american kids like you anyway lol.

haruvister  +   2511d ago
Never underestimate the expectations of a Fallout fan. Secretly I want this game to be pants so I can give my overdraft a breather...
Baba1906  +   2511d ago
i must say i have never been as bothered buy someone, as the one interview i saw about this game, where one of the makers only talks about how the bodyparts fly around and explode. i think it was on E3 or something. it felt so empty to just concentrate on the brutality of the game. and he acted like a teenager who had seen porn the first time on the internet.
well im still hoping this game ends up beeing good. i would love to enjoy it, couse i guess ill have to buy it anyway. but still when i read what this guy wrote it kind of makes me sad.
krakdol  +   2511d ago
The comments in this section are too smart, I won't be able to add anything sensible.

Clouded opinion
Ok, you could beat oblivion in an afternoon too. That wasn't the point of the game though. It offered a world with tons of things to do, side quests, being a member of guilds etc. This guy probably just loved fallout 1 and 2 and is all upset because it's not the same. I see people making comments all the time saying they wish it was still just like the first two. Well I have news for you, the first two weren't that great. I just started playing fallout 1 and it's ridiculously unbalanced, tedious, and despite what you think it's not very in depth.

I welcome "Oblivion with Guns". Plus every other creditable review I've read gave it an excellent rating. I think this review is a mixture of Fallout 1&2 fanboyism and someone who didn't like oblivion. 4 years of hard work went into it and I know it's going to be quite a gem.
