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. Anyone who appreciates Fallout 1 will enjoy the much larger Fallout 2.
Fallout has an isometric three-quarters view and features turn-based combat.
Fallout 1 began the great saga. When nuclear fired rained from the heavens, incinerating most of humanity, a lucky few reached the safety of underground bunkers. The player character, later known as the Vault Dweller, was born and raised in the womblike Vault 13. Fifty years after the war, the vault's water chip malfunctioned, and the Vault Dweller was sent outside to find a replacement. The hero fought terrible enemies in the chaotic wastelands of California and suffered greatly during [...].
Fallout 2 takes place 80 years after Fallout 1 and 130 years after the nuclear war that nearly exterminated the human race. The heroic Vault Dweller founded a primitive tribal village in Northern California, and taught the tribe to live in peaceful seclusion, before wandering into the wasteland once more. You are the Vault Dweller's descendant, the Chosen One. You must quest for a Garden of Eden Creation Kit that may save your dying village. You depart alone into the hostile wasteland, where corrupt societies tempered by constant warfare will challenge your naive upbringing.Read more ›
This is a fantastic game. Not perfect, but 10x better than most of the games that've been available in the last few years. Refreshing element 1: it isn't for children, nor is it for people with the attention span of children. Refreshing element 2: it has an interesting and reasonably nicely laid-out storyline, but at the same time, refrains from *smothering* itself in story, leaving an entertaining degree of freedom in the hands of the player. Refreshing element 3: unlike most console RPGs, you don't have to "do the right, good, family-values oriented thing." You can shoot drugs, slaughter the innocent, bribe, steal, pimp, push, whore yourself around, contract STDs, and a host of other fun things. At the same time, you have innumerable chances to commit virtuous deeds, free slaves, engage in winning and complex subplots, etc., until you have made yourself something close to a living god in the eyes of the people. Both of these options, and the range they represent, are key, and contribute remarkably to the entertainment factor.Read more ›
Fallout 2 is also pretty hard, but not too hard. I don't enjoy cakewalk games, and this definitely isn't one. Your companions have an annoying habit of getting themselves killed, and it's up to you to keep it from happening. If you do stupid things, the enemies WILL kill you too, and quickly.
Last but not least, the humor--sometimes cornball and sometimes not--that permeates the game draws from everything from Monty Python (you can meet the bridgekeeper from Holy Grail! ) on down. I've laughed myself to tears a couple of times.
This game lacks only one thing: stunning visuals. And I promise, you'll be too engrossed in the game to worry about those. Fallout 2 = Must Buy.
