Warning: This is not a game for the impatient.
This is a brilliant FPS-RPG with a lot of detailing into character development and choices. Taking into account that its an RPG u no what to expect a lot of Chit-Chat with some very very annoying NPCs...
Starting off in a vault which was a place of sanctity post nuclear war period. U have to run away and get out into the radiation filled world with not much to go on except trying to find your father in a world that has been unknown to u for the duration of the 19 years that u have lived.
The character Development starts with Chosing ur Sex M/F then ur Name and then what u would like your character to look like ingame with a lot of detail involded. The initial part of the game can be quite boring and irritating as u dont do much except talk to ppl. Its only after ur father runs away and leave the vault that the real game begins. Escaping the vault is another headache all together but once ur out ur free to either follow the main story line or just run around exploring a huge landscape. Something that i feel is unique to this game is the existence of radio if u dont feel like playing u can just sit down and listen to the radio. Also the Signal Strength varies so u might not get a particular radio station everywhere u go but there is always a substitute.
The Choice u make affect how the game plays out and where u go and what quests u do im certain that there are an extremely large amount of options available since u have multiple choices to move in different directions with different ppl and varying quest.
If r Weapon skills are very important in this game as they determine ur chances of hitting a person. Also the trajectory of the weapon is not straight but slightly angled since thats the way the gun is held. Its Quite the piece of work this one.
The Graphics Detailing and Shadow effects as well as the night and day cycles are well done. There is even a sleep feature but it not as well done as the sleep feature in Farcry 2.
I give this game a 8/10 and that a lot considering i particularly dislike RPG game coz there is too much chit chat in them.
This is the view when u 1st exit the vault.
DIE DIE DIE
Thats some awesome lighting effect
