IGN: Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition Review

It's rare that a game can hit the mark in so many different and often conflicting areas. Fallout 3 offers freedom without sacrificing a focused story. It delivers fantastic combat without forgoing a deep role-playing system. The characters you meet are engaging and oftentimes hilarious without feeling out of place in this harsh world. The game has a few flaws -- most of them technical -- but it's a case where the whole is greater than the sum. It's a fantastic game with incredible atmosphere that offers fun in so many different ways that you're almost sure to get hooked.

It's not a new review. They added a paragraph about the additional content, but otherwise it's the same review with the same score.

Speaking of which, I just noticed that they have a 9.6 for the 360 version and only a 9.4 for the PS3 version. What's up with that? They're the same game! I understand that the PS3 version had a minor bug when it came out, and it didn't have trophies upon release. Was that really worth giving it a lower score? And now that the bug has been ironed out and the trophies have been patched in, doesn't it deserve the same score as the 360 version?

If what you said is true, then yes it deserves a lower score. Lowering it by 2 is ridiculous though. 360 should be a 96/100 and PS3 should be a 95.8/100. Therefore people who read the review will know about the bug, and people who just check metacritic will see a 96 for both.

Well yeah, there was a minor bug in the PS3 version when the game came out over a year ago. But that bug was fixed with a patch shortly after the game came out, so it's a non-issue now.

i can't believe you guys are SO worried about this difference, i mean it's there for a reason, but it doesn't mean that the ps3 version is crap.
get a life, seriously ;)

When you make a point and then end it with "get a life", all credibility shows right out the window.
