Am I the only one disappointed with this game?

I will admit they got some things quite right.  The wasteland is a pretty impressive environment, graphics and characters look good and the whole thing has that Fallout-y feel to it.  However,

1) Hit detection is terrible and non-VATS combat in general is brutally bad.
2) It seems as though the Lone Wanderer is running waist-deep in oatmeal the whole time, very sluggish.
3) Most of the quests are disappointing, particularly the main line.
4) Path-finding is a joke, James got stuck on a rock out-cropping.
5) What quest there are have been simplified compared to previous titles.  Tenpenny Tower for instance: Find character; speech check; find character; speech check; find character; speech check, and so on. OR Find character; BANG; find character; BANG.

Meh, boring.

The thing that breaks the game for me is the writing. Half the charm of FO1 and 2 was the speech and dialogue options. It's really lacking in FO3, unfortunately ;/

Almost time to have a Fallout New Vegas Spoilers thread, surely?!

Man, this one dropped below my radar.

There's supposedly an MMO in development too, but I don't have real high hopes for that.
