Fallout 3 Mod Review - Rat Trap Remastered
Fallout 3 Mod Review - Rat Trap Remastered (Nov 1, 2010 Beta)
Summary: Dungeon crawl. Boss, treasure, and two companions. Playable but could use some polish. Work on this has probably been abandoned, though.
Why Get This: Kill things, get loot including a unique power armor. Interesting ambiance and story.
+ There's an intriguing story supported by background story bits you can pick up along the way. This elevates the mod beyond a straight dungeon crawl.
+ Interesting use of radiation in the end battles.
+ There's a solid attempt at ambiance with Chinese propaganda posters that parallel the Western ones. Also a lot of dialogue clips and music.
+ Some interactions with mini-bosses and interesting events.
- Still buggy, but nothing serious or game-stopping. One of the companions may not follow you. Two quest objectives won't update.
