Thestar: Fallout 3 review


"Fallout 3's menu system doesn't help with the flow of it all much, either. Clearly mapped for a limited-button console configuration, you call up your wrist-strapped menu all too often to manage everything from your inventory, your quest de jour, maps, weapon selection and the like, which is handy in the management sense, but also tedious and distracting, especially in the PC version of the game that practically screams for a quick keystroke or mapped mouse button to swap from Laser Pistol to Laser Rifle (or anything with a bit of ammo left in it) rather than a pause, select, scroll, swap, unpause. That said, the Xbox 360 control scheme couldn't be any better. Pfft, consoles.

Despite these irritants, Fallout 3 is certainly a huge game with serious legs; tons of action in unpredictable spurts, a fair amount of intrigue and unremitting role-playing goodness. It's big time bang for your buck considering how long it takes to play -- and then replay with a different, perhaps malevolent disposition from the get-go. Or perhaps you just want to own a house with a robot butler. Go nuts."

....but i need some advice. After playing fallout 3 on my 360 for around 8hrs straight, something went wrong graphically, the backgrounds went pixelated and characters went a bit glitchy. At first i thought it might be a fallout 3 glitch. I tried with Dead Space, same thing, but the menus are fine but during gameplay everything has gone pixelated and really grainey and blockey. It was the same with COD4 now, when playing mp the sky on screen has thick black stripes on it, and everything is yet again grainey. Can someone please help me? I was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem? Advice would be much appreciated....thanks in advance.
