    I ran into my first Super Mutant Behemoth today, and nearly shat myself. Im just glad there were some NPC mercs around to take him out. All that was left for me was to clean up, and claim my mini-nuke. Good times indeed.

    If you can borrow it from a freind or rent it for about a week or two, go that route rather than buying it. While it is a GREAT game, perhaps the most addicting one I've played, the addiction lasts for about a week, then it gets old hat real fast. Severe lack of character customization, a level 20 level cap, and extremely redundant enemies. Also, if you develop your first or second character a lot, dont expect any replay value, the game is short and and easy to beat. And while the game boasts that it has hundreds of ways to end it, you have to take into consideration that there are a lot of diolouge options, many of which lead to the same result. And heres another dual-edged sword for you, the game has a HUGE map withA LOT of different locations to travel to and find, but only about 7 are worth going to, and have to get there on foot. You can essentially beat the game with a combat shotgun and an assault rifle, even on a high difficulty, so dont expect to find too many "Legendary" weapons like some of the godly things you found in ES 4:OBLIVION. You'll find a few unique weapons, yes, but they just do a bit more damage and thats it, so theres little inscentive to go exploring. Overall, I would have said 10/10 after a week of gameplay, after 2 weeks I'd have said it 8/10, after a month...6/10.

    Got it for Christmas, haven't left the house since,10 from me, though I agree with the voice acting bit, though at least it's beter than oblivions, that game had like two voices per race

    it does deserve a ten, it still has flaws but i dont think they gave it credit for the simple size of the world, or the complete atmosphere of the game

    Wait that piece of sh*t GTA 4 got a 10? Wow im never gonna trust Gamesradar again...i think Fallout 3 outta have a 10. Only problem i can think of are the occasional glitches and that damn level cap
