Summary: An amazing game that stands up to the test of time. I'm mostly writing this review to correct a few issues I saw one of the negative reviews had made: that there were no alternate ammo types, damage types, or upgrades for weapons and armour. All of those are in the game. The world is large and free to roam, and the decision to have soft preventative measures other than hard ones makes the game much more immersive. (With one exception, which is a guy with infinite HP.
Summary: Timeless Classic. This game still has the best inventory system seen in gaming. In what subsequent game have players felt the need to keep a baseball bat to use once they ran out of bullets for their single, rusting gun? Great character development. GREAT writing, great plots great NPCs Great humour. I think that nostalgia blurs people's vision somehow.
Summary: Fallout and Fallout 2 will forever be my favorite RPGs. The games created an amazing atmosphere and intense sense of permanence. Everything dies. I tried so hard to keep that damn dog alive and it was impossible. And the soundtrack. Its incredible. My ex gf didn't like me playing it because the music frightened her so much. I played Fallout 2, got all the way to the end, and for laughs decided to attack the wrong guy and wow.
Summary: A tough as nails RPG that will kill you at the drop of a hat, It never feels overly difficult, just difficult like a lot of old games, maybe it's just because I'm not very familiar with this kind of game, I bought it in the Fallout Trilogy pack because Fallout 3 maybe my favorite game of all time, and I wasn't disappointed with the world and atmosphere of the game, and the story is pretty good but I doubt I'll ever see the end of it due to the fact that I suck at this,...
Summary: Fallout 1 & 2 are two of my all time favorite RPG's. They helped pave the way for a new type of RPG, and did it well. So long as your not put off by the turn based gameplay, this is a must play for RPG fanatics. Fallout Tactics I haven't spent as much time on but it offered lan and for the first time real-time battles (as an option). These are the sort of games I will pick up once every few years and just play it again. 10/10.
