    I did and so far I am happy.

    If you liked oblivion, and enjoyed Fallout (1,2, or tactics), you're likely to enjoy this game.

    If you loved the fallout series, it can be a little more complex. They did a good job keeping close to the atmosphere and silliness you had in Fallout, but the quests seem a bit... well boring. Don't get me wrong, blasting Super Mutants is great fun, but to me things feel a bit too well polished. Often it's the usual go here, and do that thing. There are quite a few exceptions that make the game great fun however, and I keep playing :)

    The repair system is fairly nice (you use similar items to repair your broken item). This prevents a huge pile of items in your inventory.

    I suppose the best part is the vast desolate world in the game. Graphics, atmosphere and even till some extend the dialog. It makes you experience the emptiness of a blown up world. The endless empty buildings, the few scavengers and the small settlements you come across every once in a while. The game feels quite like an open world. I can go where I want, and do what I want.

    If I have to rate this game, I'd probably give it an 8.5. It's great fun, and well done, but it's got just a little bit too much of Oblivion's quest sequences in it.

    Best bit I've come across in the game so far was a note on a researcher's computer:
    Notes concerning research on what Super Mutants eat.
    When I looked into this subject there was just one note which read: Research assistants.
    :D

        got it for the x360 together with fable 2; haven't had any time for it yet though (i'm at the toddler stage...). fable 2 looks fantastic too, only 5 mins in too but a great atmosphere.
        Gears of War 2 is yelling for my wallet too, but i'm still resisting!!!! :drool:

          If you are a total Fallout purist, you'll hate Fallout 3.

          If you hated Oblivion, you'll hate Fallout 3.

          If you either you enjoyed Oblivion or you are fan of the Fallout franchise (without being a total purist) then you'll probably enjoy it, and if you fall in both categories then you'll have a lot of fun.

          I'm loving it - can't wait for the editor to be released ;)

                  Red Alert 3 is a huge disappointment. According to GT .

                            Have you tried any of this yet, Killers?

                            No idea if it's related to your problem but it can't hurt to try ... I guess. ;)

                              tried that and was able to play for additional 100 meters...then the next crash...loading up again...going a few meters...crashing again...it somehow fixed problems in small areas...havenīt fixed a lot of crashes though...still unbelievable that Bethesda was not able to look about multi core processors...welcome today guys...probably your next game has a chance to use them...

                              not to mention that I as a customer have to play around with the game.ini to tell the game yes I have 4 processorīs...just because of the stupidity of your coders...please only use 1 of them...
