Summary: I was so excited to play this game. But then when I got it I tried to install it (had trouble with that)and then finally when I'm in the main menu. I pressed play and then It said ERROR! Fallout 2 Requires The cd To Play! I went to programs an then went to Black Isle like it told me to and then I went to the file Fallout 2. And then when I selected it, it said to me the same thing.
Summary: This game is nothing more than a sick joke. Really the story absolutely sucks (what motivates one through twenty hours of gameplay?), the humor tries to be funny but comes across as stale, the environment is tedious and boring, the difficulty is Schizophrenic i.e. hikes constantly especially when you fight against the Enclave. It's like the game itself is a parody of the original Fallout. If you want a masterpiece of a game, buy the original Fallout instead of this junk.
Summary: This is a truly great game and despite some aging of the graphics, it holds up better than most games its age. However, be warned that this is really the game exactly as it came out, and may not run out-of-the-box on a newer operating system. After a little internet searching I was able get the patches needed to make it run, but I could see that being very frustrating to someone not ready for it. I think I got it to work after about 15 minutes of work.
Summary: Today's games are all about the newest and most impressive graphics, a year or so after the "newest" game is yesterdays news. Fallout 3, and new vegas are two game that aged very rapidly(although fun, and repayable). Fallout 2 is not only the most popular game in its series, but one of my all time favorite games. In Fallout 2 a player is able to do practically anything they wish to do, a complete upgrade form the original game.
Summary: I cant say enough of whats already been said many times, Fallout 2 and the Fallout series in general are just great games. Taking your created player and diving head first into the retro-futuristic world of an apocalyptic America that was frozen in the 1950's mindset, with the addition of advanced technology. I wont say much as far as story goes because learning it in-game is far more rewarding.
Summary: This game is legendary! They don't make RPGs like that anymore! Gripping story, hundreds of hours of gameplay, a huge free word to explore, killable children (It might sound sick, but it is about the freedom the developers gave to the player. If you don't want to hurt them... don't do it, but 'Black Isle' won't restrain you from doing it!). The game was a perfect blend of funny and adult This game is legendary! They don't make RPGs like that anymore!
