Pros It's a Fallout title and it stays pretty true to the original.
Cons Characters you talked to aren't very memorable.
Item descriptions are gone.
Want to know why the world feels so big? It's because your run speed is horrible.
Feels more FPS then an RPG. (VATS system not as useful as I thought it would be)
Summary It's great that Bethseda took up the challenge of creating Fallout 3 and while they did a good job it feels like they left out alot of the little things that made Fallout feel edgy. The humor in the game just wasn't there (Where's pip boy?). I used to love reading the little descriptions that came with weapons or other items. The people you meet aren't very memorable either. Aside from Moira in Megaton I didn't really feel anything for most of the others I met.
I'm a hardcore fan and I still play Fallout, Fallout 2 and yes Tactics so I'm not sure if I just expected more. I'll still play Fallout 3 just to complete all the little quests but I'm hoping if they do a 4th they'll have a better and longer main storyline.
Pros Aside from the graphics being awesome, the story line and customization allowed by FO3 are incredible. Smooth movements, good audio, easy controls/interface, and LOADS OF FUN!! what else can you ask for?
Cons walking around takes forever to get anywhere
Summary I love the options available, being to choose who your character is and what he/she is about. The action sequences and dialog speak for themselves. A truly rad game.
Pros THIS is the MOST memorable game! I find myself looking up the stories and things relating to Fallout on the internet cause I got so interested in it!
-Big, Big World
-Choose your Destiny.
Cons -At some points, laggy. (Solved when Installed on Xbox 360 Hard Drive.)
-Sometimes weird diologes and interactions. (Like a kid talked bad about her mother to me, like she wasn't around, but she was next to us, taking no notice!)
Summary Just Get It and Stop Reading the Complaints. Apparantly Those People don't like RPG's!It is in my TOP 5 VIDEO GAMES EVER!
I find myself only using the V.A.T.S. It is SO COOL!
And Plus, Its Washington D.C. and Landscape in a Post-Nuclear Time! What can get better than that! And the Atomic Age-looking buildings and cars! Incredible!

Summary I would highly recomend this game to gamers.
Pros Stunning Visuals;Execellent Quests;Breathing world;Authentic Fallout Humor;An endless world with stunning replication of the D.C. area, full customization every aspect of wasteland life, true "survival like" feel. VAT's cinematic kills, perks we love
Cons Less "FPS" feel than expected, third person views unrealistic
Summary With the new DLC, there is no reason a true gamer shouldn't play it, on par with half life!
