What a blast. The game play is occasionally clouded by the foolish camera, and some of the campaign missions are a slog, but generally this game kicks RTS butt. I want to spend some time in online play now, to see if it delivers as well.
I have also resolved to PLAY THE STORYLINE IN OBLIVION. I have spent about 30 hours playing this game and have yet to advance past the second or third quest in the main plot. I really hope that Fallout 3 can maintain this level of polish.
I'm also looking for a kinship on the Landroval server for Lord of the Rings. I'm not a serious player, but a social game it is. Look for Flandel Ironbeard.
