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.


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.

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.

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.

The game software downloaded, installed and ran correctly. The price was about 2-3 times higher than a hard copy CD-Rom from one of the various marketplace sellers. Personally I would rather have a hard copy, but I have to admit it was very convenient and I didn't have to wait for shipping.

Obviously this is a much older game, but if you haven't played it don't knock it. I've been a PC gamer for a while. I had heard of this title years ago and I've seen some of the new titles in the series, but for some reason I never played any of them before until now.

For how old this game is, it is surprisingly entertaining. It has a great story line that kept me wanting to play. It's a sort of post-nuclear, apocalyptic fantasy meets gritty wild-west--very unique for it's time and genre. Like other reviews have stated, I can see how it really brought fresh growth into a stagnant pool of RPGs. It seems this game was a revolutionary RPG that tore apart the fantasy RPG stereotype.

I feel it remains to be an entertaining game for a n00b or even perhaps for someone who played it 15 years ago. It's interesting having played this game now and realizing how influential it really was for the video game industry and even pop-culture.

Great game for people that like older games and turn based. Beware of where you purchase from. I have a old copy of this and thought I was buying a old copy ... nope. It does meet the description of "Original in box unopened" but it's a much much newer version of this game in a plastic DVD case. Good still to keep in the collection, but not the original paper box like this image portrays and the description made me believe.
