Sad, isn't it? Everything is Fallout 3, or Modern Warfare, or something... You cannot make good games without being totally revolutionary if you don't want this =p. You'll have to make something entirely new. And that is impossible. Someone will ALWAYS find a game to compare it to...
I don't agree with this. ID is being very very boring with this and inventing a good setting has never been their forte. This is just a FPS Fallout 3 as I see it and no kudos to ID for making it.
It can be a good shooter yes, but in the end, originality-wise: 0/10 ID.
Why not take an original template? Cells shooting through the human body trying to cure an illness or something. Anything would have been better than the Fallout3-setting*2.
No, not everything, WWII would have been worse, and maybe man-fights-aliens as well.
