I'll star apologizing for my poor english... I've been playing this game for two days (almost uninterruptedly) and i had to tell someone who could understand my pain what are my feelings about it. Why i hate it? 1) Poor graphics. If the graphics were just as F2, i would be content. Even today, they still look cool. Instead of it, they opted for the 3d-thing. But they made it crappy, choppy, lifeless... completely outdated. 2) The graphics again. They are ugly, they are lifeless, they are choppy. But it's obvious that that's were they placed the most of there efforts. I'm fully convinced that they dedicated more time to the texture of the floor than... every thing else? 3) What the hell did they do to the character sheet? It's terrible! awful! almost disgusting! They destroyed the fallout 1 and 2 character sheet. Tag skills? completely useless. May be you don't remember, but in the earlier fallouts you needed less skill points to develope the tagged skills than you needed for the non-tagged ones. Now it just adds some points to the skill... that's crap. You also can't have more than 100 points in any skill. I use a sniper rifle, i have 100 in small guns, i have 8 in perception, and i also have perks that's supposed to enhance my accuracy with VATS, but still i only have 38% chance of hitting the torso of a guy that's 100mats away... wtf? it's a sniper rifle! i can't have more than 100 points in small guns! It's absurd! I also noticed you choose a perk every time you level up instead of doing so every 3 levels like it was in the others. It is just boring. In the other games it was a "special" moment. You where going to choose a special hability! And you didn't knew what would you be able to choose, since you couldn't see all the perks, even if they were not available yet! It was pretty exciting. Now, at least till level 10, more than a half of the available perks consist in adding skill points to your character... that's not an special hability, i'm afraid, and you can see what's coming next and what do you have to do to be able to choose any perk... "no sir, i don't like it". Also, they are less than they were in F1 and F2. Almost forgot! Where are the traits!? I want them back! And not as perks! There are also some skills missing. That's simply sad. 4) The interfaces simply stink. They didn't even bothered in making an image for every item (the inventory ones). I remember there were A LOT of items in F1 and F2. They had an image for every thing, and ALSO a DESCRIPTION. Why the hell didn't they put a description for the items? I makes me mad. Half the time i find myself carrying items i simply don't know what they do, or if they are useful or what, just because i don't know what is it! Image: pack of unrecognizable things. Description: None at all. It makes me MAD. The bartering interface is just poor. It's bad enough to keep me away of bartering with anyone unless it's absolutely needed, otherwise, i don't want to even see that screen. Why didn't they use categories like in oblivion? There are too many items! I want a gun, not cheese puffs, or scrap metal, or a fork, or a hat, I WANT A GUN!!!! LET ME SEE YOUR GUNS AND JUST YOUR GUNS, PLEEEEEASE!!!! Also, if you took something from the person you are bartering with and you regret of what you took, you have search your hoooooooooole inventory to find it and give it back or cancel the bartering sequence and start giving and taking again... The dialogue interface is as poor as the others. There only can be displayed 3 lines at a time, so you'll have to scroll. Luckily (?) the dialogues are so basic and oblivion-tupid that most of the times it's enough, but if it isn't... sometimes you don't notice there are more options, sometimes you get lost during the scrolling due to the poor 3 lines you can see at a time... that's another "mmmm... no sir. I don't like it". 5) I wish i'm wrong, but... in these two days i couldn't find any mob. There is no mob in fallout 3? If that's true, then this game is lost. There's no fallout without a mob. If i come across a bethesda guy in the street, i will shoot his knees without hesitation, they don't deserve less than that. Also, there's no city like New Reno. There MUST be a city full of whores, drugs, casinos, mobs... again, this is not fallout. 6) Where's the desert? You can't walk more than 100 mts without finding someone, and probabilities are 99 vs 1 that you will find raiders. That's as absurd as boring. They have nothing of value, they are too easy to kill, and their AI is simply sad. 7) NPC's are blind and deaf. You can shoot a magnum 44 and no one will hear it. They can see his fellow raider die just in front of them, and have no reaction. They had the technology to make NPCs moderately aware of what was happening around them back in the '90. There's no excuse for this. 8) Dialogues are boring as hell. I haven't found a good dialogue yet, except, may be the one with harold. 9) There are... what? 5 different critters? Booooooooooriiiiiiiing. 10) What where they thinking when they put vampires in the game? I mean... it was ok for oblivion, but in fallout... well, it's out of the question. 11) Why so much radiation? There wasn't so much in F1 and F2... wich happened 100 years ago, theoricly. And the war was 200 years ago... do they live using RadAway every day in japan? 12) Power armors are pussy. The brotherhood of steel guys look like crazy people with garbage tied to there bodys. I hate the power armors. 13) No moral decisions. The worst thing you can do in the game is blow megaton, wich is really a bad thing to do... i mean... blow upo people is bad, you know? But there's nothing else. You can threat people, and lie. Those are the "bad" things you can do. What really annoys me is that they turned fallout into a pussy game. It's just pussy. They destroyed the game's spirit. I don't understand why did they buy the licence of fallout. They could just make this piece of garbage and call it "A pussy post-nuclear game" or whatever they wanted and it would had been the same. There are practically no allusions to the other games and i doubt that the ideas of a nuclear war and a nuclear refuge can't be used without rights. Uff... i'm tired, i'll continue with this later. See you later.
