Product Description

Product Description

Welcome to the wasteland...where humanity struggles to pick up the pieces after a devastating nuclear war. As a courageous member if the Brotherhood of Steel, your mission is to bring peace to this post-apocalyptic world filled with relentless chaos and radioactive nightmares.

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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, linear and tragic waste of effort February 16, 2004
Format:Video Game
Its all sad really. Fallout 1 and 2 were two of the best games ever made, IMO. This new game FO:BOS, has none of the humor, creativity, good plot lines, different choices, etc... It is so linear, characters are flat and game play gets sooooo old. It is instead plays like a hastily thrown together game, on top of a pre-existing (playstation Dark Alliance) game engine, which it is. It is crude, boring, uninspired and repetitive. After 10 + hrs playing I am burned out with it and want it to be over. Although the fan sites dismissed the game before released, they were definately right. Your better off with many other titles.
It's only not consisent with nor anywhere as good as its predecessors, it isn't a very good game at all, even based on its merrit as a console type action game rather than RPG. That combined with the horrible PR job Interplay did, managing to offend and insult their fan base, makes this bungle even more remarkable. I bought both the game and guide book pre-order because I loved the series but I certainly won't make that mistake in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice February 17, 2004
Format:Video Game
As a fan of the original Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout: Tactics series, I'm biased to be inclined to like anything to do with the series. A friend of mine bought Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, and though it was a great play for a few hours, it seemed to get old after so long. That's where Fallout: BOS is different.
Instead of the severely modified world of Dungeons and Dragons, you're thrown into the nuclear-blasted wastelands of the 23rd century, where radscorpions, raiders, super mutants, and deathclaws reign supreme. As an initiate in the Brotherhood of Steel, an organization of high-tech warriors who are trying to bring peace and sanity back to human civilization, it will be your job to find a group of your bretheren and to slaughter the threats to the local town.
Many of the Fallout classic weapons, like the Desert Eagle, hunting rifle, and 10mm SMG reappear with deadly new capabilities. Plus, you can play two-player cooperative action, so grab a friend and get killing!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great for 2 players but bland in every other regard. December 7, 2008
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever since Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance came out for the PS-2 it spawned many similar action/rpg hybrid clones. For example there is the Champions of Norrath series and even Hunter the Reckoning. These games attempt to take the themes we enjoyed about Ever Quest, Baldur's Gate, and the world of darkness and make them into entertaining hack n slash co-op fests. In that regard Brother-Hood is more of the same. While it may wear a cheap Vault dweller uniform you can tell it is more " loot n shoot" than it is Fall Out 1-2 or Fall-out tactics.

I understand why the Fall-out fans were peeved about Brother-Hood of steel. It was at a time Fall Out 3 had been promised many times only to let us down. Of course Bethesda FINALLY answered our prayers so bitterness and skepticism are things of the past.

The main thing you should know is this is NOT going to stand up to Fall-Out 3. Fall out 3 has a great series of plots. Brother Hood of steel doesn't. Fall out 3 has interesting non player characters to interact with in myriad ways. Brother-hood of Steel's NPCs are a cliche nasty bar tender, a prostitute, a cowardly mayor, and an old gnarled military vet missing an arm. Yup, I'd say Carbon has about 6 NPCs to talk to and that's it.

However keep in mind Brother-hood of steel was not even trying to be Fall-Out 3 to begin with. It simply wanted to provide a fun 2-player destruction fest in a post apocalyptic world setting which is interesting. On that level it does succeed. Assuming you have a friend over it can pass the time. However I imagine playing it alone is a drab task of monotony.

Each brother hood of steel initiate has different strengths and weaknesses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Game February 6, 2014
By Jake
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
First of all, I was a huge fan of the Dark Alliance Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norrath games that came out for Ps2 years ago. Then, more recently I got into the Fallout series, starting with 3, then NV, then 1, 2, and Tactics, but I still wanted more. I discovered this game and bought it knowing nothing about it other than it was some Fallout spin-off made by Interplay, the original owners of the Fallout series (and who also made Baldur's Gate.). When I popped this into my old Ps2, I got a HUGE surprise. This game runs the EXACT same engine as the Dark Alliance games. The gameplay, leveling system, and even menus are pretty much identical. It's like a bizarre cross-over of some of my favorite games. It was fantastic because I so badly wanted more games like those old hack n' slash games. I was excited at first, but of course, it was not all good. The substance that the other entries in the Fallout franchise have in splendor is virtually non-existent in this one. It's pretty corny and crude at times just for the sake of doing so. You don't get the feeling that they took any time at all on story-telling the way they did Baldur's Gate. It's just a lot of "go there," and "do that," for no particular reason. It gets repetitive. That being said, it is still pretty fun to mindlessly play with a friend. Many seem to be angry it's so different from other Fallout games, but it IS a spin-off. It's the nature of spin-offs to be different. If you wanted more games like Dark Alliance and Champions, and you like the world of Fallout, you should get this just for the odd experience.
