5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best CRPG ever April 7, 2005
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is simply brilliant. It is better than Fallout 1 in many ways. Firstly, it is less linear (if that is even possible)! Your actions during the game cause the endings to differ. You can do whatever you like in whatever order you please, and there is no longer a time limit (150 days). Yes, the game is a little harder than the first Fallout, but that is a good thing -- The first one was a little on the easy side. I cannot even put how good this game is into words. I 100% guarantee that you will love this game if you have even the slightest desire to play a post-apoc turn-based RPG. It is simply the best one in existence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallout 2 March 31, 2005
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
By the time the Fallout games were released for the Mac, they were both dated in terms of graphics and overall game technology. What ISN'T dated about these games is the interesting storyline, the humor, the characters, and the world of Fallout itself, which is unique.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest game yet written... March 5, 2003
Platform for Display:Mac
Probably the finest game yet written: unparalleled in breadth, depth, humour and intelligence. Fresh (and surprising) every time you play. "Slight pixellation" hard to notice when you've been playing the game for 48 hours straight: it's a text adventure with a front end anyway. Beg, borrow, steal. Shame fallout tactics is so much less fun.

Begin your radiation sickness anew! This game works again in system 10.5.5, as does Diablo 2 for your demon battling desires. Thanks Apple.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Old Game With Tons of Replay Value November 12, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac|Verified Purchase
This game is ridiculously fun. It's addictive, interesting, immersive and well put together. The various levels are well thought-out and are challenging, and game play is a blast. As you level up you gain more skills and talents and become a more formidable character able to take on more challenging foes. Your enemies are thugs, slavers, street gangs, assassins, organized criminals, monsters of various sorts and eventually the remnants of the old Federal government, which is seeking to take over. Along the journey you get a car, which you can use to transport yourself all over the map and which street thugs can steal, so watch out! At one point in the game you can go into an old military base that's still operational and is a highly dangerous place to visit. But also fascinating, and full of clues as to how the world came to an end.

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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fallout Falls over - DOA October 13, 2009
By Mac_Cat
Platform for Display:Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not surprised when an older game like this fails to run on a the newest hardware or OS versions.

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.
