Fallout 3: Revisited

Platforms: Xbox 360 (Reviewed), PS3 and Windows based PCs In a bid to garner a little hype for the upcoming Broken Steel DLC for Fallout 3 and give anyone who may be sitting on the fence as to weather they should buy this or not that extra little push, I’ve decided to re-review Fallout 3. Previously I had done a damn fine review last year but that was for another team and it was for the PS3 version. Fallout 3 came to us from Bethesda Softworks, the very same folks who were responsible for the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Elder Scrolls series. I must admit that I wasn’t overly impressed the Elder Scroll: Oblivion when it came out for the 360. I felt that the character models were poorly done and the environment was too big. I loved the look of the environments but that was about it. When it was announced that Bethesda was taking the reins for the next Fallout series, I was less than enthused as the original series is ranked as one of my most beloved computer games ever. As time wore on and new information and screens came out, the excitement began to well up in me. The game literally starts you as a baby where you set your appearance and your traits and learn basic movement and environment interaction. From there you...
