The original Fallout and Fallout are turn-based, top-down perspective role-playing games. Though they feel dated in some reguards (graphics, minimal voice-overs, dated AI), they still exhibit gameplay superior to more recent role-playing videogames (libertine freedom, moral choices, engaging dialogue, and a "sandbox" feel).
Fallout's "sandbox" feel is one of its greatest strengths. While most games will force the player to adhere to a certain rigid path, or force him/her to stay in one area until he/she advances in level, Fallout disreguards these limiters. Players can venture into the most dangerous and hostile areas as soon as they begin the game. In Fallout 2, for example, one can beat the game in under an hour if their character was properly oriented (and if they were so inclined).
Fortunatly, the massive worlds and the many ways to play the games will keep players holding their ultimate victory and exploring more of the game. The first two Fallout games have not yet been replaced. The freedoms granted in the Fallout games are comparable to Morrowind or Oblivion, but The Elder Scrolls games lack the complex dialogues and social engineering of the Fallout games. The worlds and the style of play are comparable to the Baldur's gate series, but Fallout has so much greater a sense of freedom than any Dungeons and Dragons videogame ever released. Fallout and Fallout two have not yet been replaced, and I doubt they ever will be.Read more ›
I manually deleted the master.dat FOLLDER from the Fallout 2 folder on my hard disk, then dragged the master.dat FILE from the DVD into the Fallout 2 folder on my hard disk.
This seemed to do the trick.
FallOut Tactics was a bit of a let-down from the first two, but none-the-less a very playable game and some very clever nods to late 90's, early 00's culture. (For example, there's a random encounter based on the movie "Pitch Black" and later you can hire a mercenary named Riddick who is very proficient at hand-to-hand combat.
I know whether these games will work with Microsoft XP.
Fallout 1 was released over a decade ago. This DVD installs Fallout 1 version 1.2, released in 1997, long before Windows XP. i already owned this game but my copy didn't run on XP so i bought this. And learned that this has exactly the same problem. Specifically, the game screen goes black every few seconds. i spent a couple of hours searching Google and found that this was a common problem but that there was no solution. Common solutions offered include updating (or downgrading) graphics drivers, trying patches, setting the compatibility mode and adjusting screen resolution, none of which have any effect. So i was really, really sad when i got this game (again) and realized i still couldn't play it
i spent another couple of days researching it and i think i've got something. The screen in Fallout 1 (but not 2 or Tactics, which are newer games) goes black because some application changed the way it looked. Maybe a Web browser refreshed itself or an icon in your status bar changed colors. Anything that changes the way it looks causes Windows to redraw the screen (to update it to the new way it should look). Fallout 1 doesn't know that, even in Win 95 compatibility mode, so it gets blacked out by Windows but doesn't redraw itself
The solution is to shut down everything before starting Fallout 1. It's not a great solution and it took me several days (this time; i tried before months ago) to figure out. None of the Fallout sites that i found mentioned it.Read more ›
As for the titles themselves, it's more than a little futile to throw the weight of my opinion against established public opinion as the Fallout series has been well-received for over a decade now.Read more ›

One of the best games ever made. Fallout Tactics is OK but it can get boring as it doesn't have that much you keep my interest on and the missions get repetitive (find a good... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Mihai R.
