Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 are available in a cheap bundle pack, but the bundle apparently does not include the amazing game manuals.

The Fallout games rank among the top few computer RPGs ever created. When the genre was in a slump, Fallout breathed fresh life into it. Fallout's originality, gritty post-apocalyptic environment, brilliant plot, and open-ended non-linear gameplay left an indelible mark upon the face of role playing. Anyone who appreciates Fallout 1 will enjoy the much larger Fallout 2.

Fallout has an isometric three-quarters view and features turn-based combat.

Fallout 1 began the great saga. When nuclear fired rained from the heavens, incinerating most of humanity, a lucky few reached the safety of underground bunkers. The player character, later known as the Vault Dweller, was born and raised in the womblike Vault 13. Fifty years after the war, the vault's water chip malfunctioned, and the Vault Dweller was sent outside to find a replacement. The hero fought terrible enemies in the chaotic wastelands of California and suffered greatly during [...].

Fallout 2 takes place 80 years after Fallout 1 and 130 years after the nuclear war that nearly exterminated the human race. The heroic Vault Dweller founded a primitive tribal village in Northern California, and taught the tribe to live in peaceful seclusion, before wandering into the wasteland once more. You are the Vault Dweller's descendant, the Chosen One. You must quest for a Garden of Eden Creation Kit that may save your dying village. You depart alone into the hostile wasteland, where corrupt societies tempered by constant warfare will challenge your naive upbringing.

Ahh -- this game came to me like a cool, refreshing breeze in the middle of a desert. I had just about given up hope. Console RPGs were too juvenile and restrictive-feeling, and computer RPGs were vanishing in favor of ugly-looking polygon-littered 3-D FX adventures. I figured that Ultima VII, several years back, had been the end of the kind of RPG I knew and loved, because I hadn't seen anything come remotely close to matching it since. (I should mention that I missed out on the original Fallout.) But I thought Fallout 2 looked interesting, took a chance on it, and felt that familiar old flood of video-game inspired joy wash through me.
This is a fantastic game. Not perfect, but 10x better than most of the games that've been available in the last few years. Refreshing element 1: it isn't for children, nor is it for people with the attention span of children. Refreshing element 2: it has an interesting and reasonably nicely laid-out storyline, but at the same time, refrains from *smothering* itself in story, leaving an entertaining degree of freedom in the hands of the player. Refreshing element 3: unlike most console RPGs, you don't have to "do the right, good, family-values oriented thing." You can shoot drugs, slaughter the innocent, bribe, steal, pimp, push, whore yourself around, contract STDs, and a host of other fun things. At the same time, you have innumerable chances to commit virtuous deeds, free slaves, engage in winning and complex subplots, etc., until you have made yourself something close to a living god in the eyes of the people. Both of these options, and the range they represent, are key, and contribute remarkably to the entertainment factor.

Some games rise above others, but there are a precious few that look down from above the clouds. Fallout 2 is one of those. The best thing about it is that everything matters. If you make a smart, fast character, you'll never carry a lot of gear or use a lot of the bigger weapons. If you make a strong, tough character, you'll be too dumb to notice special little things or to convince people to help you out. That's simplifying it, too; there are tons of available options and your character is fully customizable, and all of these details have tangible game effects.
Fallout 2 is also pretty hard, but not too hard. I don't enjoy cakewalk games, and this definitely isn't one. Your companions have an annoying habit of getting themselves killed, and it's up to you to keep it from happening. If you do stupid things, the enemies WILL kill you too, and quickly.
Last but not least, the humor--sometimes cornball and sometimes not--that permeates the game draws from everything from Monty Python (you can meet the bridgekeeper from Holy Grail! ) on down. I've laughed myself to tears a couple of times.
This game lacks only one thing: stunning visuals. And I promise, you'll be too engrossed in the game to worry about those. Fallout 2 = Must Buy.

The game Wasteland has been considerd by many to be the classic computer based RPG, it was MAD MAX meets TERMINATOR. A nuclear war had been fought and mankind was struggling out of the wreckage but was suddnely faced with the threat of annihilation by the machines. That was were you came in to save the day by journeying through a world after the bomb. It was in depth and exciting with alot of replayability. But after Wasteland there was a void there were some good RPGs but none had the "magic" that Wasteland had that is until now. Fallout II is one of two best RPGs I have ever played (the other for sentimental reasons is Wasteland). Some of the annoying features of the first Fallout have been remedied such as being able to pick your traveling companions weapons and armor. There are alot of subplots within the game as well as the main plotline so you always have something to do, I never really experienced a deadend when I didn't have a clue what to do. The storyline is alot like Wasteland with an after the bomb theme and the need to save the surviving world from some ominous "threat". I had hours of enjoyment journeying through towns that looked like they came out of a Mad Max movie and then suddenly finding towns and settlements that had preserved technology and civillization. The interaction with Non Player characters was very nice with important characters having animated sequences when you spoke with them, this was cool from an enterainment standpoint but also let you know when you had found someone important to solving the game. Combat was very efficient with lots of weapons and weapon options. Be advised the combat can be GORY but there is a feature to disable it for those who prefer a santized version.
