You enjoyed it? I played about 40 hrs...realized I had done the same thing over, like 60 times...


The storyline in this game is so very weak, I stopped playing. The game engine is very good, but the actual gameplay itself sucked, IMHO. Get job, go to area, kill bad guys, get item/diamond, go back. get new job, go kill guys, get diamond, go back. Get job, chase down convoy, kill guys, go back.

Finding "tape recorders" to develop the storyline is the weakest thing yet...uh, bioshock did it, sure, but that fit in the world. I mean, I don't think I saw one single cutscene after the beginning...


In the end, I'm happy to hear that my decision to not waste my time with this title any more was a good one.

heh I'll totally agree with you on that one, SKYMTL.

Using the Oblivion engine was a HUGE mistake. Nevermind taking a month fater relase to get the game properly stable on all three platforms...and there still being many crash bugs...Fallout 3 musta been in some fallout itself, and the quality potential degraded largely while in the radition emitted from teh developer's cubicles...

I like FC 2 because it is pretty open-ended and the gameplay -while like many other games- actually works.

Fallout 3 on the other hand completely lost interest for me when the decided to implement Games for Windows Live in one of the patches. That and the fact that constantly missing your target gets VERY annoying.

I am just at the point now where I need storyline to motivate me to play a singleplayer game. I don't watch TV...maybe a movie a week, and the rest of my free time is reading, or on the internet. FarCry 2 greatly lacked in that regard.

The AI is atrocious...I didn't die once...I heard you cannot die, and one of your "comrads" comes to save you...never needed them...

Maybe I just don't appreciate the open-ended-ness..I dunno...If it wasn't for the included bench, I probably wouldn't have bought it, as I have it on my PS3, and on the PC.

You spent 40h on it? Wow, better than me. I think I maybe played 10-15h before I said screw it. Just got way too boring from all the repetition like you said.

Yeah, I have alot of patience(duh, 4 kids). I kept hoping it would get better...and the visuals kept me entertained for a bit too...environmental changes are done very well, but night-time render blows chunks.

I finished FC2 and liked it a lot. I'd agree the story telling was pretty weak, but the constant run-n-gunning of FC2 just seemed to work for me and I had a blast with all the weapons and open world.
