Dutch gaming site InsideGamer has posted their preview of Fallout 3. Translated highlights:
Why then am I not ecstatic to now, finally, after all those years of
messing around with the franchise, hear that a sequel is really in
production? Well, call me mean or cynical, call me a hardcore Fallout
fan, but I'm skeptical. Bethesda does not strike me as suited to do the
job and so far they've only been reinforcing that opinion.
The majority of Fallout fans are not happy so far. The annoyance has
gone so far that a large group of Fallout fans has started to make
their own game which they dub the "true sequel." With their
extraordinary weapons and slowmotion deathscenes, Bethesda is putting
the emphasis heavily on action, which certainly was not the defining
element of Fallout. With the teaser they showed that they can bring the
atmosphere to life, and with that I hope they will listen more to the
fans so that they can realize this quality in their game. Fall 2008 is
long way away...
