I thought this game was going to be oblivion + guns, I WAS wrong, I say this game comes very close to the type of game Fallout1 + 2 was, the only difference is the gameplay, Its an fps. 

The game actually dodes a few things BETTER than fallout 1 and 2, you cant repair weapons 100% until the end of the game, so you always feel like your scavenging for weapons that are less damaged.

My gameplay complaint is some people only get knocked unconcious its stupid because that isnt realistic I shot a fat man mini nuke at someone and they just got knocked out.

And also the textures look shiny,  not dull, the dirt seems freshly tilled instead of being packed down by years of people, animals, and brahmin, walking around on it. Theres also way too many boulders Its stupid I hate it.

Edit: eh I kind of hate this game now the ending sucks and its really short, also it doesnt recap what I did very well like the first 2 did.
This thread explains why the ending dropped the ball.

I'm loving the game. It'll take me a long time to beat the game I bet, because I still need to beat farcry 2, and when gears2 comes out, I'll be all over that game for awhile.

I need to get it, it's just I'm working on LittleBigPlanet and Fable 2 and Far Cry 2 right now. I guess having to many games to play is a good problem to have.

It feels like oblivion with guns to me. Not that there is really anything with that, fallout is the better game but it should be its newer. 3rd person view sucks just like it did in oblivion.  Anyone whos played both can see it.

Third person is awesome in this game. This is definetly not Oblivion with guns.
Have you even played this game?

Third person is definitely not awesome. The game is pretty close to having me consider it be my personal game of the year, and I admit the third person is shit. Shooting with it is strange and awkward, and try pulling the camera back and watching the animations, Levio. They are absolutely terrible.

Levio, your posts continue to make me laugh. Sorry but third-person is not a reliable way to play in this game, at all. In fact, I agree with the generalization "Oblivion with guns." Why? Because that's what it is. I was pretty much disappointed by this game and near the end just trudged through, considering my hatred for Oblivion. I just got the full thousand in gamerscore, can't wait to get rid of this trash.

I don't think the Third-Person sucks, just that the positioning of the camera is too low. If they brought it up to the shoulder more (like Resident Evil 4) it could have been a viable way to play.

You can bring it up to the shoulder. Hold left-bumper and adjust it; but the animations are fucking horrible and the shooting is even weirder with it.

Not really. The AI is annoying enough to warrant excessive use of VATS. Enemies tend to fidget left and right, taking away a possible fun past-time of just shooting them in the head. It took me way too long to line up shots. Either they move left or right, or crouch then stand up. Mind you, talking specifically about headshots.

I play on the PC. There is no "left bumper". I guess the PC version is better, because the animation looks fine on there.

Edit: It also doesn't go all the way up to the shoulder. It still shows too much of the back.

You are so... I don't even know if words can describe your stupidity. What was your total completion time? I'm 11 hours in and I haven't even touched the main quest.

Hey Levio, in case you didn't notice that this game is Oblivion with Guns. This game is Oblivion with Guns. They didn't even make new animations for mostly everything. Even when you climb into the dream machine, that's the getting on a horse animation.

Because animations decide if a game is the same but I just have to disagree because oblivion was overrated and Fallout 3 is actually good and rated about right and deserves single player game of the year unless another game really brings it. But those saying it is short probably on completed the main quest because im 20 hours in and probably wont beat it til next weekend gears 2 time.

Ummmm...this is oblivion with guns. That does not mean it sucks, its just not as good as it would have been....maybe if it was actually like....a real fallout game.

It's definitely more than Oblivion with guns.
