Fallout 3 sucks you in from the very beginning and makes you part of the game. it combines elements from so many games that the list alone could go for pages. in the time i have played this game i have seen things that have shocked me, amazed me and made me laugh in a way that made me happy that i played this game. it takes all the parts of the fallout series that made it beloved and combines Oblivion's open world dynamic with GTA IV type music and radio. the combat system is perfect and the difficulty is just right on target to keep the game fun but challenging. this game is well worth the cost and will remain perennial favorite. i have logged over 10 hours already and know that there will be many more to come. fallout 3 is too good to make a Christmas present you should give it now.

i give it 10
