This game fails in the hype, seems no one here even bought and played it yet.

Mine is downloading now from Steam. 1.6MB/s @ 35%. I won't be playing it though till I get and install my new BFG 260GTX Maxcore. It's on the UPS truck but I haven't seen it yet. *sigh*

Looks like torrents are going slow today. Mine didn't ship yet. Decided to stick with the 360 version.

I am hoping to see some impressions from you guys!! i never liked RPG s but am somehow caught in the hype of this whole thing. I just like that VATS system and if I can run and gun through the game doing just that, I would be a happy camper. Hope it runs on my 800gt though!!

Will be playing this after work - just wondering if the game has an SLI profile for 178.xx drivers or higher? And if not, what profile you're using (I was going to try oblivion or a similar profile for previous Bethesda games).

**EDIT** I see it already has a profile in my 178.13 drivers (thanks nHancer).

Although the Xbox 360 and PC versions display the occasional visual oddity and bland texture, these nitpicks are easy to overlook. Sadly, the jagged edges, washed-out lighting, and slightly diminished draw distance of the PS3 release aren't so easy to dismiss. We also experienced a number of visual bugs on the PS3. Character faces disappeared several times, leaving only eyeballs and hair; limbs on robots went missing; some character models had an odd outline around them as if they were cel-shaded; and the day-to-night transition may cause odd streaks on the screen as you move the camera around. This version doesn't even offer trophies, whereas the Xbox 360 and PC versions offer Xbox Live/Windows Live achievements.

While there is plenty of somber exploration, you'll still find lots of action.

Aside from a few PS3-specific sound quirks, the audio in every version is marvelous. Most of the voice acting is great, some sleepy-sounding performances notwithstanding. Any game's atmosphere can live or die by its ambient audio, and Fallout 3 rises to the challenge. The whistling of the wind and the far-off sound of a gunshot are likely to give you a chill, and the slow-motion groans and crunch of a baseball bat meeting a ghoul's face sound wonderfully painful. If you get lonely and want some company, you can listen to a couple of radio stations, though the frequent repetition of the songs and announcements grates after a while. The soundtrack is fine, though it's a bit overwrought considering the desolate setting. Luckily, its default volume is very low, so it doesn't get in the way.

Serious Sam III will ultimately fix this...

Or the next installment from the Crysis trilogy.

Or Bioshock2...

Or EP3
