October 29, 2008 - Excellent - This is the kind of hugely ambitious game that doesn't come around very often, and when it does, you'd be a fool not to play it and enjoy the hell out of it and look forward to the day when the fidelity of open-world RPGs takes another big step closer to the uncanny valley's far side.
October 28, 2008 - Excellent - Bethesda has once again delivered a game of life-affirming brilliance that will be heralded as a classic, and talked about for years to come.
October 29, 2008 - Excellent - It seems the team at Bethesda must be fans as well, because not only does Fallout 3 earn its numeral, it does the Fallout name honor as well.

December 8, 2008 - Excellent - If you're looking for exciting and engrossing role-playing gameplay, Fallout 3 is a must-play title for 2008.
October 28, 2008 - Excellent - No matter what platform you own, you should play Fallout 3, which overcomes its issues by offering a deep and involving journey through a world that's hard to forget.
October 27, 2008 - Excellent - While the jury is still out on whether or not hardcore Fallout enthusiasts will accept the game as part of the storied franchise, Fallout 3 is a must-have title for most RPG fans, as well as one of the finest games of this generation.
October 28, 2008 - Excellent - The freedom may scare people used to more linear shooters and the simplified customisation might disappoint hardcore RPGers, but if ever a game was worth broadening your horizons for, this is it.
October 29, 2008 - Excellent - Everything is set at such a high caliber that the negligible flaws and inconsistencies come across as much larger blemishes than in most games, but they can't tarnish the overall experience.
October 27, 2008 - Excellent - [Fallout 3 is] a fantastic game with incredible atmosphere that offers fun in so many different ways that you're almost sure to get hooked. This is one of the best games you'll play this year.
October 28, 2008 - Excellent - [Fallout 3 is] packed with interesting places, with choices to make, with that nebulous sense of adventure you only find in the best RPGs.

October 27, 2008 - Good - While it lacks a diverse spectrum of enemies and the V.A.T.S. system isn't perfect, Fallout 3 remains a well-balanced game of story versus combat, something that every gamer needs to experience just to understand why engaging stories often make the greatest games.
October 27, 2008 - Good - It'll be a struggle in spots, but I'm willing to guess that most people will be able to overlook a lot of the game's problems and still have a very good time exploring the irradiated wasteland formerly known as Washington DC.
