I got to say I wasnt that impressed with what I saw on the gamespot demo. Perhaps I am a bit harsh but something just seemed off...maybe graphics blurr effect they had going on, maybe the music from the drone thing, maybe the flat green interface, maybe the way over the top death animation (the guy gets shot in the head and all his limbs pop off, WTF?). I loved oblivion so I pretty much have to get this, but I am not as excited about it as I am about a lot of other games.

I'm really impressed, we've both played oblivion and know that oblivion's fun runs much deeper than initial impressions. The video demo's i was too impressed by, but i've been listening to podcasts from 1up and ign about the Fallout demo and they say that it was amazing, and that in half an hour each of them had a totally different and amazing experience they took away, and they had that within just one hour, oh and the extreme violence isnt neccesary its just a perk your character can get if you want to see extreme gore and dismemberment.

i didn't like how when the guy used the sniper rifle and shot someone in the head, the whole body exploded.

other than that, i can't wait. it'll be my first Fallout game so i'm hoping it'll be better than Oblivion (hated that game).

I don't know how they should have made the V.A.T.S system in another way... I think they managed to get the old fallout style and the new 3D setup very well together.

Anyhow after fallout 3 is done I would love for bethesda to make an MMORPG and as it's thier first one Blizzard could help em do it. That result would be unbeliveable.

Everyone was going crazy for it but the game graphics look like crap. The animation was lame and just didn't draw me in. But hey to each his own and that's my opinion.

... especially the gameplay and the way the camera cuts to and from the action (hard to explain), seemed a bit iffy.

I hope it will be better that I expect, and previews so far are pretty positive about the game... but still... we'll have to wait and see.

is a ode to the older games. You don't have to use vats at all and can play the whole game as a 1st person shooter.

Put me in the subset of those who think that a true Fallout Successor should be turn based and more heavily RPG then Combat.
I tried to give it props - it looks fantastic but it's not Fallout 3 its just a shooter set in the fallout universe.

saw Haze last year ... and Lair before that ...

Some games just don't live up to the hype !!!

Relcom3763d ago

Comparing Fallout 3 to Haze and Lair is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

Leathersoup3763d ago

Fallout has just a wee bit, ok tons more depth to it than Haze and Lair combined.

edhe3763d ago

I think the game could very well be incredible. I got sucked into oblivion (just another hack and slash set in the TES universe, eh JoeIR?) quite the thing. I can imagine that a oblivion style FPS/TPS/TB game with deep background will be quite amazing.

(yes that's first person shooter, third person shooter and turn based(?) (VATS))
