Fallout 3 Reviewed by Toughest Audience – NMA
No Mutants Allowed is one of the most infamous fan communities around. Their dedication to Fallout is as stalwart as their objections to Bethesda producing Fallout 3. I expected a review from the infamous Vince D. Weller to be highly critical to say the least.
I wasn’t disappointed. What I didn’t expect is to agree with him on several points including his estimation of the VATS system although I enjoy it immensely. The system results in some incredible displays of chunky death.
Before you get the idea that Weller’s review is too biased to be fair, you should read the Fallout 3 review in its entirety. Weller doesn’t spare the weaknesses but also spotlights the strengths of the game.
“Compared to the first two Fallout games, Fallout 3 is a pale imitation that may anger many fans of the original games. However, comparing Fallout 3 to similar games like Morrowind, Oblivion, Gothic, Two Worlds, Assassins Creed, etc presents a much more favourable reaction. I think that it’s the best game Bethesda have produced since the Daggerfall days and that really says something about the game. The most important feature of the game is the promise of great things to come from Bethesda in the future… God knows, it’s been long overdue.”
