Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing
Our existence...a subterranean Fallout shelter modified to
house 1,000 people indefinitely after a nuclear holocaust. It's been nearly 80
years and we still don't have nay idea what's out there. Sure, we've sent out
volunteer scouts, but none of them returned...
Now our water recycler has failed. Rationing has begun, but
someone needs to leave the vault to get a replacement microchip for the water
recycler and look for other survivors.
We drew straws. You drew the
Remember Wasteland? Fallout creates a classic old
school role-playing experience with all new depth and complexity.
Over 50 mini-quests with multiple solutions take you
through devastated wastelands such as Rad Scorpion dens, Junktown, and the
Brotherhood of Steel.
Meticulous turn-based combat system lets you target

into a pile of goo, and explode like a blood sausage into chunks of flesh.

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.

Adventure by Ray Ivey
"Unlike most good pure adventure games, RPGs really do need
good manuals. And Fallout has one of the best I've ever encountered. It's
comprehensive, easy to use, and very amusing to read."
"The format of the game is third-person,
with both mouse and keyboard controls. The graphics in the gameplay engine were
a bit of a disappointment, though I guess the post-nuclear war environments
would be pretty drab and repetitive. Still, the gameplay is so fun the drab
graphics don't do too much damage."
"This is one of those rare games that oozes quality from
every pore. You get the impression that Tim Cain, the game's producer and lead
programmer, really likes computer games, and he made sure that every element of
the game is enjoyable. From the opening cinematic, a chilling, multilayered
introduction made more ironic by the sweet strains of the Ink Spots singing
"Maybe," you're hooked by this intriguing game."
"The game also features one of the best endings I've ever
seen in a game. It wrapped up all the major storylines (with variables
according to how I played the game, which was cool), and it even threw in a
surprising, poignant, but very believable twist that gave the end of the game a
great deal of pathos.
" I would agree wholeheartedly with my friends to who turned
me on to this game. If you are an adventure player who's been interested in
trying an RPG, this is the game to try. Personally, I can't wait to play
