First 10 out of 10 for Fallout 3 [ Game -> Review ]

It was only a matter of time, I suppose. The Official Xbox Magazine (AKA OXM) gave game a 10/10. The remarkable thing about this score though? They come out and say the game isn't perfect in their closing paragraph, stating:

"By now you've probably noticed that we're giving Fallout 3 a big 'ol score, so in interest in of quelling any outcry - no, this game is not perfect, in particular, we really wish that Bethesda had worked more on the dialogue system. In this post-Mass Effect era, it's dissapointing not being able to hear yourself talk and have to pick your dialogue options from big blobs of text. Other quibbles: NPC chatter often overlaps in a comfused tangle, the third person view is more than a bit crap, and we were always bummed that in such an otherwise detailed world, no one noticed the corpses of their friends who we'd just stealth killed. The biggest annoyance, though, is not being able to quick travel unless you're outside..."

It takes balls to give a game what can be defined as a perfect score, since they've admitted that there will never be a 10 out of 11 then spend a paragraph listing complaints that seem pretty remarkable in my book.

You can read most of the article here or pester NMA about it since I first spotted it there.
