Sequel to the RPG Game of the
It's been 80 long years since your ancestor trod across the
wastelands. As you search for the Garden of Eden Creation Kit to save your
primitive village, your path is strewn with crippling radiation, megalomaniac
mutants, and a relentless stream of lies, deceit and treachery. You begin to
wonder if anyone really stands to gain anything from this brave new world.
Mastering your character's skills and traits for survival,
Fallout 2 will challenge you to endure in a post-nuclear world whose future
withers with every passing moment...
We are family
Not everyone that joins you looks like you. Super-mutants, robo-dogs and ghouls
may join your adventure, or why not do-it-yourself by implanting a brain into
that shiny new robot body.
Kill smarter, not
Improved combat AI for friends and foes alike. Most of
the people in your own group won't take that burst shot with the Flechette-gun,
but a couple are probably just aching for the opportunity.
Share the wealth
If you want to, you can upgrade any traveling companions with more
dangerous weapons, tougher armor, or even teach them new skills and abilities.
Of course, you'd better make sure they're on your side.
Bigger & badder than
Bigger, smarter, nastier enemies than you've ever fought
before. We've given you a few pals that are just as ugly. You didn't think you
were the only Bad-ass in town did you?
Sex & romance after the
Fall in love, get married, and then pimp your spouse for a
little extra chump-change. Hey, it's a dark and dangerous world.
Over 100 new skills, called perks, available to
learn during the course of your travels. Better to learn the exquisite art of
Pyromania, the uncanny timing as a Demolition expert, or how to squeeze the
trigger on your spiffy new Gauss-rifle faster than the next guy? Decisions,
Pentium 90 or faster (P120 recommended), 16MB RAM (32MB

certified SVGA video card, Direct X certifited sound card, 4x or faster CD-ROM
drive, Windows 95/98/NT/Me/XP, 100% Microsoft compatible mouse.
PC Accelerator, January 1999
"The post-apocalyptic future sure does look bright: The raw
and gritty Fallout 2 is here to remind the gaming world what a real RPG
is. An oldschool RPGer like me could just about kiss someone at Interplay. This
is the real deal for true role players, the hard stuff.
"For those who are under the impression that role-playing
games consist of goofy-ass-looking characters with big heads, bad dialogue, and
enough mental anguish to make a therapist run for the razor blades, a game like
Falloutmay seem outright alien. Here, you make a character from scratch,
with a complete and user-friendly creation system that includes onscreen
explanations for every stat, skill, and option. After that, you find your main
purpose: to retrieve the Garden of Eden Construction Kit to prevent your desert
village from dying."
"As in the original, you can find nonplayer characters, but
this time around they don't act like complete idiots - a big plus - and will
generally use decent combat tactics. Other improvements include no overall time
limit and the option to keep adventuring after you complete the main goal,
uncovering features you may have missed. The critical hits option, which lets
you aim for a specific body part on an opponent, is awesome. Combat is tactical
and turn-based (gulp), but the rest of the game is played in real time. And
during combat you control only your character, not the NPCs who may follow you
"The game lets you lead your character down the path of
heroic righteousness, but you're more likely to take the evil route of killing,
stealing, and taking advantage of every whore and wasteland sucker you come
across. A karma and reputation system keeps track of your progress and directly
affects how others relate to you."
