I'll be getting it, but having just got Far Cry 2 and Mass Effect and also trying to find time to better my times on trials it seems I don't have enough time.... looks awesome though, if you get it let me know what it's like

Fallout 3 is quite ok. It's not exactly the game I would have liked Fallout3 to be, but I can't really say it's bad. Battles are a bit too much FPS to my liking and the world feels a lot smaller than in fallout2 or even fallout. Smallness comes mostly from the fact that you walk everywhere in 1st/3rd person perspective. Some parts of the maps also seem a bit too much maze like (which usually just means that the world is artificially made larger).

But the game is visually pretty and the fallout world is pretty well captured in the game (which is good).
