Fallout 3 on PS3 360

Fallout 3 Screen Shots

Fallout 3 is a Adventuring game available on the PS3 360. It can be played in Firstperson Singleplayer modes.

Fallout 3 is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Fallout 3 can be played in a Firstperson mode. First Person games view the world from the eyes of the in-game character. You don't see the character themselves apart from their hands, gun or possibly feet as in Mirror's Edge. Because of the imediacy of the experience and sheer volume of visual information the player is offered First Person games lend themselves to the shooting genre. The FPS view enables players to immerse themselves in the experience and react quicker to events in the game. Other games have used a first person view to deliver an unusual perspective on an old genre - Mirror's Edge for example delivers a Platforming genre through a First Person view.

Fallout 3 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Fallout 3 for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.


Perpetual Gamer review Tue, 22 Mar 2011

Fallout 3 is a meandering adventure through an irradiated post apocalyptic world inhabited by robots, mutants and heavily armed opposing forces all fighting for control of the scraps. This world is as much a character in the story as the people themselves, and the loneliness of the place stayed with me the whole time I was playing.

I love open world games; the Grand Theft Auto series did that to me. The ability to wander as you wish and do what you like makes a game really stay with me. Not being contained by invisible walls, although there are always some however well hidden they are, makes me feel that I'm master of my own destiny.

Eclectic Gamer review Tue, 14 Sep 2010

Fallout 3 created incidental stories that made the Wasteland setting a place I wanted to be. Add in the epic robots of the Broken Steel DLC and even for my eclectic tastes this is impressive stuff.

It's the little eclectic stories that I like most about Fallout. Sure, the main plotline to find your Daddy is interesting and noble and gives a structure to your journey and all that standard role-playing stuff. But it's the things that happen along the way that capture my imagination the most.

Story Gamer review Wed, 05 May 2010

Fallout 3's core storyline, with its blank protagonist and cliched daddy issues, isn't the greatest story in the world, but step off the narrow path of your central quest and you'll find dozens of stories worth exploring out in the Capitol Wasteland.

Fallout 3 begins how a hundred RPG and RPG-flavoured games have before it - with a protagonist striking out from his or her home, and out into the wilderness to explore, on a quest to find their lost father. It's the classic beginning for a hero's quest from any number of fantasy stories and RPGs, except the community you're leaving is Vault 101, an underground survival bunker, and the wilderness is the post apocalyptic wasteland surrounding Washington DC.

Perpetual Gamer review Tue, 23 Jun 2009

It's a rare occurrence for a game to make such a nostalgic impact on me. But popping Fallout 3 into the 360 resulted in the unearthing of long forgotten and much cherished memories of times gone by. Fallout 3 being a game I could lose myself in, and yet at the same time, be surprised by what I found.

At age 17 I watched The silence of the lambs. The film finished and I realised that I must have missed half the film. I ran downstairs to check the time and found out that no, I'd been watching for its two hour running time. I hadn't missed a single frame. The film had completely enveloped me. I'd become so engrossed that to me it felt like I'd only been watching it for a matter of minutes.

Mousey Gamer review Fri, 15 Aug 2008

Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing Fallout 3. I hope you like my video game reviews that are not hand drawn - but written one mouse stroke at a time.

Fallout will scare you in many different ways. There are the unsettling subtleties from interactions with the game’s characters, and then there are the more obvious horrors of being charged by a giant, screaming Death Claw while you fumble to reload your tiny rifle.
