IGN has rated Fallout 3 the seventh best game of the entire decade. Here's what they had to say:
It's tough for a studio to take over a beloved franchise from another group of developers. Bethesda's Fallout 3 is a roadmap to success. Blending elements of old with its patented open-world design, the group that cut its teeth on The Elder Scrolls franchise brought back a classic while taking it to new heights.
