Reviews and Problems with Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel
Showing 1-7 of 7
Great for 2 players but bland in every other regard.

Summary: Ever since Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance came out for the PS-2 it spawned many similar action/rpg hybrid clones. For example there is the Champions of Norrath series and even Hunter the Reckoning. These games attempt to take the themes we enjoyed about Ever Quest, Baldur's Gate, and the world of darkness and make them into entertaining hack n slash co-op fests. In that regard Brother-Hood is more of the same.
Summary: After playing through the Champions of Norrath series and enjoying my sweet time with the Baldur's Gate series, I decided to try the next in my favorite genre of games. I went with Fallout. This game was quite a disappointment. It had absolutely no complexity, no interesting gear, no replay value, and the characters didn't pull me in whatsoever. I think the worst quality about this game, though, is the fact that almost every single level looks identical.
Summary: I am a HUGE fan of the Fallout series(And yes, we should have slit Chucky's throat before he made this game.) and thusly, this game is a HUGE dissapointment. If you want to play a Fallout game, this is NOT the one to get, it is a bastardization of the series. This game is nothing like the others, and does not deserve to be called by the same name as those classic pieces of art.
Summary: Its all sad really. Fallout 1 and 2 were two of the best games ever made, IMO. This new game FO:BOS, has none of the humor, creativity, good plot lines, different choices, etc... It is so linear, characters are flat and game play gets sooooo old. It is instead plays like a hastily thrown together game, on top of a pre-existing (playstation Dark Alliance) game engine, which it is. It is crude, boring, uninspired and repetitive.
Conclusion: Danger ist ein Glücksspiel mit ganz wenig taktischen Elementen. Ich kann mir vorstellen, daß es Kindern eine Zeit lang Spaß macht, für Jugendliche und Erwachsene bietet es aber kaum Spielspaß.
