Product Description

Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is a thrilling 3rd-person strategy-adventure, where you'll try to maintain peace after the nuclear holocaust.

Amazon.com

Black Isle’s original Fallout RPG is a bona fide classic, and the post-apocalyptic gameworld used for that game series is one that’s sorely missed by plenty of gamers. While some of them would prefer another straight up RPG set in that world, most will be content with Brotherhood of Steel, a co-operative beat ‘em up action RPG that bears more than a passing resemblance to the fan favorite fantasy game Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance.

Fallout: BOS uses the same game engine as Dark Alliance, so fans know they’re getting sharp graphics, an isometric action perspective, and an easy to use inventory. Instead of kobolds and giants, Fallout pits your characters against mutated ghouls, giant bugs, mice of extraordinary size, and much worse, all set against the backdrop of nuclear devastated cities and wastelands. The goal of the game is to find the Brotherhood of Steel, self appointed guardians of the wastes.

Prostitutes, two headed cattle, and regular folks dish out quests that have you killing monsters and finding lost items in no time, and the combat is as cool and responsive as the environments are weird and refreshing after all the fantasy themed D&D-like games in the genre. You can use guns, lasers, and nasty melee weapons and, as always, you must loot the bodies of your foes for better weapons, ammo, and the credits you need to buy more weapons. Characters level up and gain new skills and abilities, to better face the challenges to come.

Unlike most action RPGs of this type Fallout BOS features branching conversations that alter some of the quests ahead. This makes the replay value higher than normal and makes the game feel all the more refreshing. Parents should note that this Fallout is similar to the earlier games in that the subject matter tends to be more "adult" but Fallout fans should also be warned that this isn’t the Fallout III they’re pining for. It’s satisfying enough as an action RPG, but that’s all it is.--Andrew S. Bub

Pros:

  • Gauntlet with guns
  • Quests are affected by dialog choices
Cons:
  • Where is Fallout 3?

3.0 out of 5 stars Fallout Brotherhood of Steel - XBox January 15, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox
I am a huge fan of the PC RPG series and the Fallout "Universe". With this being said, I also purchased this game without the expectation of it being Fallout 3. After reading the Web site on [...] I was prepared for the fact that it was a 3rd person shooter with a few quests thrown in to a Fallout type story line.
If you enjoyed Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance you have already experienced the type of game this is. It is darker, and a bit grittier than BG: DA but nonetheless I have enjoyed trashing my way through each level.
Pros:
The graphics are smooth and even with lots of enemies on the screen the action doesn't seem to slow. Lighting and shadows are very well done. Characters are distinct and memorable in most cases.
The environments are varied enough that you don't feel like you are re-playing the same area over and over again and you can destroy a good amount of environmental object i.e. bookshelves crates, windows, tables.
The variety of weapons and skill ups is good. The armor changes the look and stats of you characters accordingly.
Controls are manageable, when jumping or maneuvering through environmental obstacles they respond well and don't leave you with that frustrated "Crap! I died again because I twitched when I should have shimmied."
Cons:
The pathing of your enemies is good until they try to run away and then they tend to walk into walls and objects.
Load times seem a bit long for what you would normally expect on the Xbox.
Targeting works on single monsters or "Boss" monsters very well but don't bother with it when you are surrounded just get in close and swing away with a good melee weapon to damage multiple enemies.

3.0 out of 5 stars 50/50 January 18, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox
If you, like me, are a harcore Fallout fan, and especially if you're, not me, one of the hardcore flamers at Interplay boards and elsewhere, you've already an opinion about this game. Far be it for me to disagree with those of you who feel this way, but for others who want an arcade shoot-em'-up, this game might be something you'd be interested in.
Okay, so it's not the Fallout that most people wanted, and shame on the publisher for taking a franchise that has no business being put into this form, but that shouldn't automatically make it one of the worst games ever made, because it's not. There's a lot of hard feelings towards this game from a lot of people but that shouldn't push "newbies" to the series automatically away.
This game, as imperfect and unwanted by many as it is, is not the total wash that many expected it would be or the POS that most assumed it would be. It has great graphics, no doubt about it, it plays smoothly, and it's great for screwing around with a buddy on a night when there's nothing else to do. It even is...gasp...fun at times. Even for those who hate Interplay for what they've done need to get over it and at least try it out. Rent it or borrow it.
For those who are new to this whole thing, or who've played Dark Alliance and liked it, I'd say rent it first. Give it a chance. And if you do like it, then by all means, spend the ten dollars and get the Fallout/Fallout2 bundle. They are two of the greatest games every made, although dated now. You will see then why there are so many people in an uproar over this game.
Bottom line: There are many haters of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steele, and with good reason, but that shouldn't turn the interested or new away automatically. Give it a spin as a rental. And by all means, whether you like it or not, get the bundle of Fallout/Fallout2, and you'll see what all of the fuss is about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original, but still a great diversion. February 18, 2004
Platform for Display:Xbox
As a loyal fan of the Fallout series I felt it necessary to pick this game up. Compared to them, however, it falls far short. The first games were completely open ended, and allowed the character to wander where they wished. This incarnation is extremely linear and forces the player to follow a preordained path.
I have heard this game compared to the Dark Alliance series, and that is a great comparison. Both series use very linear, dungeon crawl style gameplay to progress the story. However, where Dark Alliance gives a few choices for how to proceed, Fallout:BOS holds your hand every step of the way.
I know what your thinking. I can't enjoy a game where I'm just mashing buttons while the game tells me where to go and what to do. Believe me, I felt the same way. Fallout:BOS does get repetitive and monotonous, but still holds your attention through the end.
I have heard some negative comments about the graphics of Fallout:BOS, but I found these to be unrealistic. The graphics are great, if a little out of focus. My only sore point was the inability to move the camera to a lower angle. The camera can be rotated, but is stuck staring almost straight down at your character's head. In doing this, the game designers make it impossible to get a good view of all the cool armor and weapons you can carry.
Altogether Fallout:BOS is a wonderful distraction in the mode of the Dark Alliance series. While it offers some cool features not seen in those games, like target locking and dodge maneuvers, it lacks the polish and crispness Dark Alliance has in spades. I would highly suggest anyone who loves run and gun style gameplay reminscent of Gauntlet to give this one a try. If monotonous dungeon crawls aren't your thing, though, be very wary of Fallout:BOS.
