"rather than empowering the player to solve interesting problems in new and exciting ways, merely sends you for a long and elaborate stroll through a beautiful world devoid of challenge or variation, and marred by excessive repetition."

Fallout 3

OldRed

I kind of agree except with regards to Oblivion. I found the side quests on Oblivion to be more enjoyable and they seemed to give you more sense of character. In Fallout I do find them rather pointless, and the fallout main quest seems a lot shorter than Oblivions to me.

It might be something to do with the fact that I played Oblivion on the 360, and the achievements system encouraged me to complete all of the guilds before the main quest. Even aside from the guilds though Oblivion had many other side quests (errands basically), these are the kind you find in Fallout, that I didn't spend much time on.

I loved Oblivion but I would not rate Fallout so highly, I was surprised and disappointed when the credits rolled so soon, and I am not one of these people that complete games really quickly.

Fallout 3: Triple Format Face-Off

OldRed

10 years ago

Well I wouldn't say shame on EG for posting this article.

I got this game for the PS3, and the EG review did not really help me as I did not know if the PS3 was worse or if it was a 10/10. This article will help people.

But I will say that the PS3 version is fine, I don't think I have visited some of these areas that richard is talking about where it goes to 15fps, but I have a suspicion it will not be that bad. And for the rest of the comparison, PS3 does not fare as badly as I thought and this article actually highlights areas where the PS3 is better than the 360.

"perhaps predictably, once again the PS3 deserves better."

Not sure I follow this Richard, what innate right does Sony/PS3 have to demand more development resources from 3rd party companies than other platforms? Development scenarios can't always favour the PS3 like with Oblivion.

Surely it's down to the hardware decisions that Sony made and the burdens they inflict on developers with this, and it gets what it deserves?

You have to bear in mind the PS3 version of Oblivion enjoyed an extra year of dedicated development over PC and 360, so perhaps it's not accurate to expect the PS3 version to always be better when development considerations are equal. It's no surprise perhaps that in a normal scenario the PS3 slips to it's usual not-as-good-as-the-other-versions standard

Oblivion was amazing, my favourite game this generation.

I know it got a lot of stick at the time cos of the whole console wars, the fact that a 360 game got a 10/10.

Some of the criticisms of it are such bullshit though, you really have to wonder about the taste of todays gameplaying yoof. Shit the objection aimed at Oblivions 10/10 compared to GTA4 and the double standards is quite sickening and shows these kids are just whores for marketing.

Call of Duty: World at War

OldRed

I thought Cod3 multiplayer was a lot better than IW's Cod2 effort also, I think they get an unfair amount of flack.

They probably had tons of ideas of their own CoD multiplayer, but then CoD4 kind of set the world on fire and everyone was pissed off that IW were not doing this game... So it would not surprise me if Treyarch abaondend whatever plans they had. Now they have to deal the reality that gamers affections are fleeting and the Cod4 formula is of a sudden outdated.

They were probably afraid to change it, a couiple of months back Cod4 was considered the holy grail of online FPS, they get critcised for the new bits they did add to this, any deviation would of been risky as gamers do not trust Treyarch with the title. IW on the other hand can get away with more experimentation and people will approach it with an open mind.

How come Rare get so much stick for doing something obvious like Avatars?

When Sony have their own avatars @ home - nobody criticised them -
Sony ripped off motion control - Nobody criticised them -
And just a week before the Xbox avatar announcement, Sony ripped off the achievements - Nobody criticises them.

But MS are not allowed to compete
