Fallout 3 is an incredibly well-done 3D adaptation of Interplay's cherished series. It is not a flawless title by any means, but it is a remarkable one. Bethesda's marriage of the RPG and FPS genres is a triumphant success, and it makes Fallout 3 a unique experience despite its similarities to Bethesda's past releases. Further, this open-ended adventure through a post-apocalyptic wasteland is simply captivating. You'll easily get sucked into the Capital Wasteland, and you'll want to explore every last bit of it before you put the controller down.
This is one of the best games of this generation, and a must-have for anyone with the slightest bit of interest in the post-apocalyptic genre.
