Default Fallout 3 - German Version Overview @ GameStar

October 29th, 2008, 20:38
German print mag GameStar posted an overview over a couple of mostly technical points. Basis is the German Fallout 3 retail version for PC.
Summary:
  • No blood at all. The German version is cut. According to the article the Austrian and Swiss versions are not.
  • CP: SecuROM, but without online activation and install limits. The DVD needs to be in the drive.
  • GfW Live: optional, but limited to one account.
  • Loca clearly improved on to Oblivion. [Oblivion had a terrible localisation. ; ed.] Not much to complain about it.
  • F3 is not ALT-Tab friendly.
  • The options menu is buggy. Especially widescreen resolutions are often not saved.
  • The author mentions in surprisingly mild language that some menus seem to have been adjusted for consoles, which means a lot of scrolling for mouse users.
So Bethesda censored the game, although it was quite clear that even the edited version would be rated kJ (aka "18").
More information.

As a major reviewer you don't plainly criticize a majer hyped game of that calibre. Just as a rating lower than 9/10 would be regarded obscene. And besides, nothing wrong with some bugs, we have enough amateurs out there who can fix this. So instead of criticizing, everyone should applaude the major game companies for supplying us with these great nucleuses of games, waiting for fixing and enhancement! I'm sure the patch in two month will fix it, and if not, an amateur-patch will, and if not, the upcoming Add-On.

Don't be so narrow-minded! Thank g*d there are games like this out there! Who cares about menues anyway if all that matters are blurry graphic-effects and rocket-launchers?!

Just for reference:

Fallout 3 according to Amazon Germany:

http://www.amazon.de/Ubisoft-Fallout…5392965&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.de/UBI-Soft-Fallou…5392965&sr=8-2

These are the PC versions. Other platforms are also listed there.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
