Summary: Lots of crashes and bugs in the game as it is a old game it works on windows 8.1 which is what I use but you do need the unofficial patch it helps with some bugs but not all. it is a good game I have played it on the xbox 360 just wanted to try on PC to Mod and have fun with it.
Summary: Great game. But a huge hassle to download. I didn't realize you had to download a separate program to download the game and sign up to a website. I also had to make alterations to it before it would run due to file corruption but once I got it working it is an awesome game.
It is difficult to play in Windows 7 multi core ...

Summary: It is difficult to play in Windows 7 multi core computers. Here is what I did to get it to work on mine. Make a copy of Fallout.ini. Give it a new name as this is just a backup. Open Fallout.ini in notepad. Find bUseThreadedAI=0 and change it to bUseThreadedAI=1 hit Enter then type in iNumHWThreads=2 Save. You have your copy for backup if you screwed up. Run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Summary: took 4 hours to find the extra stuff i needed to run it on win 7 64bit, bethesda dropped the ball when i have to add stuff to the games files and mod the inf file just to get it to run right off the bat, but after that it works great here is the vid on how to fix it [...
Summary: I already had the lunchbox and contents so I only bought this for the pipboy because if I bought one by it self it was the same amount. The clocks buttons did not work on arrival and i had to clean the buttons contections. The clock is not for use and should only be used to display because it drains batteries very quickly. BUT IT LOOKS SO COOL.
Summary: I love older games. I love the Fallout series. I'm not turned off by the older graphics or game play as they appeal to my nostalgia. Besides, I really just purchased the games to make my Fallout collection complete. However, Fallout Tactics simply will not play. I can install it and bring up the launch screen, but I get an error message each time asking for the game CD. Either way, the game won't run. It was only $17, and I'm happy overall.
Summary: While the game runs before crashes it is a terrific experience. That fact only makes the bugs, freezes, crashes even more disappointing. I am running Win7 Pro and even with ALL of the suggested fixes the game still has its, ummmm..., moments.
Pros: Great game continuation all the way from the ORIGINAL Wasteland. Lot's of imagination and dark humor. Story line(s) full of surprises. Great replay value
Cons: Typical Bethesda product. LOTS of bugs; some even game/adventure killing. Bethesda seems to rush to market to collect the dollars from the fans but NEVER does a decent job of debugging. They let customers report all the bugs and then offer limited patches. Some of the bugs seem to be memory leak variety which is just sloppy amateurish coding. Be prepared for frustration.
