3 out of 5 eggs Not supported on Windows 7 10/28/2011

This review is from: Fallout 3: game of the Year PC Game

Pros:

It's a compelling storyline with a bunch of side missions. Yes, that's indeed Liam Neeson narrating as my dad.

Cons:

Not supported on Windows 7. Despite the game, O/S, and card being patched to the latest versions, I encounter some glitches on my Windows 7 box. These became much worse after upgrading to a new video card, though reinstalling the thereafter game lessened some of the pain. It's frustrating to zoom through my sniper scope, have the game hang, and then take down my entire operating system. My email reply from Bethesda support, a week later, simply confirmed the game was not supported on Windows 7.

The slow mo images of decapitations almost every time I finished an enemy with a head shot became quite tiring.

Other Thoughts:

A five star game with 1 star technical issues yields 3 stars. I don't understand why it's so hard to build a game that doesn't take down your entire operating system when it fails. My experience here makes me reluctant to try Bethesda's other titles, like Rage, Elder Scrolls, or Oblivion...
