Fallout 3 'addicting as Jet sprinkled on an Iguana-stick'

Apparently you can't play a game for 30 minutes and say it sucks but you are able to tell people:

I was one of the purists who believed that a Fallout FPS would not be nearly as effective as the isometric games we are used to. Well, I am man enough to admit when I am wrong and I tell you now: I was wrong. During that half hour, not only did the first or third-person perspective increase immersion into the Fallout universe, it also gave the new combat system a much more approachable interface.

In this gamer's opinion, if you have not pre-ordered the Fallout 3 Survival Edition from Amazon, you are wasting precious time. Fallout 3 is as addicting as Jet sprinkled on iguana-on-a-stick!​
Immersed in 30 minutes and a definite pre-order. In the first 30 minutes of Doom 3, I think you get to play with the shotgun for a bit. Meanwhile if you want to play the original Fallout, it'll be available on GameTap this Thursday. In other previews, GameShark say:

Within five minutes of leaving Vault 101 and confronting a few enemies, it was crystal clear that Bethesda has crafted an amazingly intuitive, highly inventive combat system.​
Crystal clear in just five minutes! If you want more head on over to GayGamer where "Fruit Brute and I got a few tightly-scheduled moments with Fallout 3" and tomsgames tells you how sick he was of Fallout's original combat:

I loved Fallout 2 as much as the next PC gamer but some of the early fights, like when you're beating rats to death with a stick, get a tad tedious using turn-based combat. Tedious? Actually I found them to be soul-destroyingly boring. Thankfully, this won't be a problem with Fallout 3.​
From soul-destroyingly boring to "not a problem". My how much Fallout has changed.
