Fallout 3 Review at CheatCC

CheatCC says: "The new setting along with the incredibly high play value should make this one of the bestselling titles of 2008. However, the game is not the infallible masterpiece many, including myself, expected. In fact, somewhat dated visuals, lackluster shooter controls, slow character progression, and an overdependence on the V.A.T.S. action point mechanic hold the game back from attaining perfection." (Fallout 3, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.0/5

While I can't really comment on the game until I play it... which I will be very soon, I will comment on their review of the game. It seems to me that the person reviewing Fallout 3 had barely heard of the series before reviewing it. He keeps a constant theme of a follow up of Oblivion... I find that odd. I will admit, I've been a fan of Fallout since it's original release and might have my vision clouded.. But, I'm disappointed by this reviewers flat and lackluster review.

I will say that this was never intended to be a FPS, so why he felt the need to comment on it like it was suppose to be, is beyond me. If the V.A.T.S system is awkward to some, it might be because it's something new... it might also mean it's implemented poorly... It's hard to say. They had to figure out some way to maintain the spirit of the original combat and skill model. I mean, if your ability was dictated by your trigger finger, what would be the point of having skills?

That's the dilemma of the RPG designer...

Perhaps...
Some of the things you say may be true. RPGs are not known for great shooter mechanics. However, since most of the game is played like a shooter, good and fun controls are important. It'd be interesting to know what you think after you play the game. I found several annoyances with the controls and even some crazy glitches. However, I still think Fallout 3 is an incredibly deep game those with enough patience will enjoy.
