Shacknews
"Fallout 3 is something to savor."

Joystiq
"I was able to enjoy Fallout 3 for what it is: A gorgeous, terrifying, utterly engrossing world to explore."

Gamers With Jobs
"The highest praise I can offer any game is that the world I'm in tells me a story about the people who inhabit it, even after they're long dead and gone. While we can wax poetic about narrative and writing and structure and acting, the real power that games have over other forms of expression is that they give the player the opportunity to linger on details. Fallout 3 is rich with these details, and through them I have had an opportunity to see what life is like after Dr. Strangelove."

Platform Nation
"The gameplay is rock solid and if you package that up with amazing graphics, audio and one great story you know you will be in for what many will call, Game of the Year."
