To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The game with the first patch installed is still too buggy to recommend. I've tried to get past the crashes, and the multiple in-game bugs, but at about the 40 hour point, the game has reached the point where it's unplayable. Regular crashes, items and money disappearing and/or reappearing, characters in the game attacking you even though they are supposed to be friendly to you, quests either staying when they should be complete, or being completed when you still have tasks to do, etc.
A new patch is supposedly imminent (mid-December). Wait for that patch before buying and starting the game.
The actual game itself is a lot like the previous Fallout. Gameplay is addictive, the storylines are interesting and often humorous, and the interface has been tweaked for a somewhat better gaming experience. It's just a shame that a game like this gets released while still in beta form. I guess the lesson we all have to learn is to only buy games after they've been patched a few times.
There was no information stating that this was a European version of the game in their information or on the game package but the disk/game itself was only in French. They did give me a full refund though!
