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...

Wow they just made the game sound awful.

JsonHenry3536d ago

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!!!!

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

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!

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!

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!!
