Fallout 2 does not improve on graphics, and it is essentially the same game as its predecessor. However, Fallout 2 expands on the first: it increases the amount of items a player comes across in the game, streamlines the controls a bit, and expands the world itself several times over making it absolutely huge in comparison. For instance, the amount you can barter with is no longer 3 digits but 4, making transfer of funds a lot quicker. Also, pilfering lockers and scavenging goods from bodies is made quicker with the addition of the "Take All" button. And NPC's are much easier to control with the ability to outfit them with specific wepons, set parameters for how they behave in battle (like, to not use burst), and you can tell them to stay behind in a place til you get back.
Some people find Fallout 2 more difficult than the first but I think that's relative. The beginning is more difficult than any part of either of the Fallout games, but once you start building up money and experience, by the time you get halfway into the game, fights are pretty easy for the most part. And I am not much of a gamer - the Fallout games are two of the only games I own for the Mac other than the Myst games.
There are a lot of new things in the game that make it more interesting than the first as well - I don't want to spoil anything, but I think fans of Fallout 1 will enjoy these additions quite a lot.Read more ›
The only thing I didn't like about this game was that for the first third of the game you're really, really poor and always struggling to make ends meet. Then you start doing better and can afford some of the niftier things that people have for sale. I think that you shouldn't have been that poor for that long. Eventually you start doing better, though, and for the rest of the game you progressively make more money.
This is the Macintosh version of this game, and it's an old game by today's standards. You'd have to play it on on old computer with an old system X on it, if you wanted to play it at all. Its system requirements are refreshingly low, so you don't need a tricked-out system to play it on. I had an old eMac that I played it on, and that worked just fine. A fun game with a lot of replay value, because you can trick your hero out with different skills and different talents just to try them out. Good luck, and have fun!
Just because it's "Mac OS X" ready doesn't mean that it works.
More likely than not, it's designed for Mac OS 9, not "X".
For $20, I was willing to try it. If installed OK, but after the first screen splash, there was no picture.
That alone would not warrant me writing a review.
What got my attention is that there is no more support for the distributor (MacPlay or Mumbo Jumbo).
I expected to find a patch or fix on a web site, but instead, the support people wrote back with:
"Unfortunately, we no longer support MacPlay titles."
That is very unfortunate.
I've enjoyed a number of MacPlay titles and now, I won't buy another one.
I recommend ASPIRE games instead (the "Call of Duty" series are great, still supported, and have patches or workaround available).
For these obsolete games, I pass them on to my nephew, who is still running an older Mac with Classic (Mac OS 9).
I had to wait a while until he was old enough for these Mature games.
I ONLY WISH AMAZON WAS MORE EXPLICIT AN CAREFUL ABOUT LISTING GAMES THAT ARE TECHNICALLY OBSOLETE.

Just thought I would let folks know that it is available (as of this date) at MacPlay for $1.88. But be aware of the high shipping cost.Published on September 8, 2005 by Charles Terrell
I loved Fallout. Once armed and with even leather armor you could strike out in any direction in search of adventure. Read morePublished on May 28, 2004
