Product Description

Platform: PC

Set in the aftermath of a worldwide nuclear war, Fallout will challenge you to survive in an unknown and dangerous world. You will take the role of a Vault-dweller, a person who has grown up in a secluded, underground survival vault. Circumstances arise that force you to go Outside--to a strange world 80 years after the end of the modern civilization--a world of mutants, radiation, gangs, and violence.

Your immediate task is to find a replacement for the broken water purification controller chip. Without that chip, your fellow Vault-dwellers are doomed to dehydration or forced to leave the safety of the Vault for the Outside.

Product Description

SynopsisEmbark on a quest to rediscover a world torn asunder by a nuclear holocaust. You alone were chosen to save a failing water recycling system, and must risk mind and body to find some hope of salvation within the ravaged wasteland that took a nuclear Armageddon to create. After abandoning the world for nearly eight decades inside a Vault-Tec survival shelter, someone must finally make their way through the dust of a civilization that has been forgotten in order to survive. There are those who tread amongst the debris that have other things in store for you. Not everyone had a Vault-Tec shelter to survive the Fallout. Fallout is a post-apocalyptic role-playing game that allows you to choose or modify one of three pre-generated character classes or build a custom character to traverse an unknown world in search of hope. Mutants and violent gangs await you in the desolation, prepared to re-introduce you to the world as it is now. Utilize a tactical turn-based style of combat and take advantage of a variety of weapons at your disposal. Embark on more than 50 quests and watch your character evolve.

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.

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

When nuclear fired rained from the heavens, incinerating most of humanity, a lucky few reached the safety of underground bunkers. You were born and raised in the womblike Vault 13, and its sterile walls encase the only world you have ever known. Fifty years after the war, the vault's water chip malfunctions, and you are sent outside to find a replacement. The door locks shut behind you, and as you exit the cave you are blinded by your first sight of the sun. You are alone in the blasted wasteland of California, a world teeming with danger: mutant beasts feed off of unwary travelers; the few decent farmers who plow the barren soil are murdered by barbaric raiders; criminals overpower lawmen; and a greater threat lurks over the horizon. You, the Vault Dweller, must adapt quickly if you wish to survive.

In a CRPG market dominated by fantasy archetypes of elves and wizards, the Fallout setting is radically distinct. It revitalizes tired fantasy conventions: the fallen, legendary kingdom is America; dark undead-infested dungeons are replaced by crumbling mutant-infested sewer systems; there is an unconventional stronghold of armored Paladins and Knights; and ancient buried scrolls are supplanted by scientific holo-disks.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just don't make'em like this anymore. August 15, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
I think the late 1990's were a golden age for the computer gamer. I remember I could walk into the local ComputerCity or BestBuy and browse rows and rows full of video games. Compare that now to maybe one row or less. *sigh* The good ole days!

One of the great relics of this golden age is Fallout. Fallout is a roleplaying game that takes place 80 years or so after a nuclear war engulfed the Earth. The adventurer's mission starts off trying to save a group of humans that survived the devastation by taking refuge in a vault. Their water purification system has failed and a replacement chip must be found. So you wander the wastes in search of this chip and find what is left of humanity.

The gameplay itself is spectacular. There are many ways to solve the quests in the game and violence is not a prerequisite. A lot of how you play the game is determined by how you build your character at the beginning. You could gear your character towards a warrior, a thief, a negotiator or even a scientist based on about 20 or so skills and traits. As the game progresses your character improves on those skills and gets "perks" along the way. Because every quest and encounter is dependent on your skills, outcomes can differ and so the replay value is extraordinary.

One of the things I love about this game is that it is geared toward adults. It can be as violent and bloody as you want depending on what preferences you set when you begin the game. Some of the language is also coarse and that too can be controled by the preferences you set. That said it should be noted that even though in its day it was considered edgey, it does not come close to the graphic nature of say GTA3, so things should be kept in perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the dungeons! June 2, 2000
Platform for Display:PC
I'd seen Fallout on the shelves ages ago, but at that time I was still pretty entrenched in the sword-wielding, dragon-slaying, quasi-Medieval fantasies that abound in this genre and the post-apocalyptic concept didn't intrigue me. I only play RPGs and refuse to pay megabucks for brand new titles, so years later my search for something to fill the gap left by solving Baldur's Gate/TSC finally led me the bargain table at my local games store, where in desperation I picked up the nicely priced Fallout 2, boxed as a "Gamer's Collection". Knowing that sequels also usually stand alone, and fascinated by the blurb on the box, I handed over my bucks. On navigating through the double layer of shrink wrap, I found "Gamer's Collection" meant I had also purchased the original Fallout. So now Fallout 2 is waiting patiently for my character to find the water chip; I'm addicted.
When World War III broke out 80 years previously, your family sought refuge in the the nuclear fallout shelter known as Vault 13. Eventually the chip used to produce fresh water fails, leaving only 150 days' supply. Your character draws the short straw and, with extremely limited resources and experience, is sent out into the radiation-soaked, mutant infested world to find a replacement.
Although Fallout is far from perfect, most flaws are compensated for by the great gameplay. However, the game looses a star from me in that you have very little control over NPCs in your party. Why give us party members if we can't control them? Ian and Tycho are great for carrying things (they seem to have endless capacities - great for trading), and in the early part, Ian saves your butt since he's more skilled than your character, but in battle they seem to do nothing but get in your way.
