Vault 101 – Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec® engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you've ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

  • Limitless Freedom! – Take in the sights and sounds of the vast Capital Wasteland! See the great monuments of the United States lying in post-apocalyptic ruin! You make the choices that define you and change the world. Just keep an eye on your Rad Meter!
  • Experience S.P.E.C.I.A.L.! – Vault-Tec® engineers bring you the latest in human ability simulation – the SPECIAL Character System! Utilizing new breakthroughs in points-based ability representation, SPECIAL affords unlimited customization of your character. Also included are dozens of unique skills and perks to choose from, each with a dazzling variety of effects!
  • Fantastic New Views! – The wizards at Vault-Tec® have done it again! No longer constrained to just one view, experience the world from 1st or 3rd person perspective. Customize your view with the touch of a button!
  • The Power of Choice! – Feeling like a dastardly villain today, or a Good Samaritan? Pick a side or walk the line, as every situation can be dealt with in many different ways. Talk out your problems in a civilized fashion, or just flash your Plasma Rifle.
  • Blast ‘Em Away With V.A.T.S.! –Even the odds in combat with the Vault-Tec® Assisted Targeting System for your Pip-Boy Model 3000! V.A.T.S. allows you to pause time in combat, target specific body parts on your target, queue up attacks, and let Vault-Tec take out your aggression for you. Rain death and destruction in an all-new cinematic presentation featuring gory dismemberments and spectacular explosions.
  • Mind-Blowing Artificial Intelligence! – At Vault-Tec®, we realize that the key to reviving civilization after a global nuclear war is people. Our best minds pooled their efforts to produce an advanced version of Radiant AI, America's First Choice in Human Interaction Simulation™. Facial expressions, gestures, unique dialog, and lifelike behavior are brought together with stunning results by the latest in Vault-Tec® technology.
  • Eye-Popping Prettiness!* – Witness the harsh realities of nuclear fallout rendered like never before in modern super-deluxe HD graphics. From the barren Wasteland, to the danger-filled offices and metro tunnels of DC, to the hideous rotten flesh of a mutant's face.

Large world to explore. Tons of good mods available. Very good character interaction. The waste land environment has a great feal of realism to it. The ambiance stays close to the original Fallout series. This is the best score I will ever give any game. Nothing gets a perfect score from me. Yes I know, Gamefly says no Windows 7 support, but at these bargain basement prices for such an excellent game, you would be a daft Brahmin not to try it. I originally bought this game for $26 on Direct to Drive, whom Gamefly took over. I suspect some peoples Windows 7 machines are so pollaxed up that they wont run much of anything. I run this game on a Windows 7 64 bit box, and it runs better than it did on my XP box. Steam has a good little tutorial in the forum for Fallout 3 that may help you. This is what I did: Original install files from Direct2Drive do not work-will not activate. Downloaded files from Gamefly. Gamefly says no windows 7 support. Game would not install-had an installation error. Validated file, asked if I wanted to try and install again, I said yes, game installed. Started game with FalloutLauncher.exe-game ran. Updated game from Gamefly client. Started game with FalloutLauncher.exe-game ran. I am playing this game through again for maybe the forth time, and up to level 20 something. If I remember right I think I've had maybe 3 crashes total. I just can't seem to help myself. Every time I have a moment sittin on the toilet, I get a strange urge to spend time in the wastes.

Despite YouTube posts, etc., to the contrary, if you purchase this game, you may likely be unable to run it with Windows 7. I couldn't, despite many efforts by Gamefly's very helpful & patient tech support. Finally, I was told that it's best to just try Windows XP.
This game is better on PC. Consoles are safer (the game will run), but this game will run your Xbox's drive into the ground.
Finally, I had a few issues with this game even on my XP system, but most of the workarounds on the Net should fix them.
This is an awesome game that is plagued with tech issues.
There are points in the game where the story lags and you are kind of wondering what to do next, so you just run around killing stuff & trying to level. But overall this game was a lot of fun.

This game will give you hours upon hours of pleasure. Worth every dime. Of course when you finish the main story, you can start work on the the DLC or trying numerous amounts of mods to give to change it into a totally different experience. Yes, it plays on Window 7, which I have and should also play on Windows 8. Goto programs(x86)/Bethesada fallout exe. file. Right click and make sure adminstrative rights is active under security or properties and then she should play fine.

its a huge game and with the all the DLC included its even bigger and money well spent getting this game. for all the peeps that don't know how to get the DLC go to data files at the beginning and check all the boxes and everything will be added in game (you will know at the time you exit vault 101.) and for ease of game play i recomend a wired xbox 360 controller for the games for windows it works like a charm .
