TopDawg540 Posted December 31, 2002 Share Posted December 31, 2002 Well I caved and ran over to best buy yesterday for a bundle I saw while christmas Shopping. Fallout 1 & 2 for $10. ::kicks his momma in the face:: BooYa! Fallout is an OLD (pentium 90 req. :O) role-playing game, set during a time with a 50's era mindset of disaster preparation and several massive vaults being built in the US in anticipation of Nuclear war. Sure enoguh it happens, and after about 80 years the survivors in your vault are running out of water due to a faulty chip in the water purifier. You draw short straw and need to go get another. And so out in the world you go. you can use one of the 3 preset characters or create your own(very easy). The good part is unlike most RPG's there is NO class system. You can use all skills (eventually) and simply need to pick what you will start off specializing in and add to it as you gain levels. Gameplay is slow at first but once you familiarize with the controls it becomes very easy. The graphics and view are Similar to Diablo I (a bit dated but still good) and Combat is turn based (may take getting used to if your a Real time fanatic, but it works very well) and can get very challenging. The Real appeal to this game is that while there is a plot to follow you are given an extrordinary amount of leeway in how you get there. Seriously, the game doesn't care what the heck you do, you can be a nice hero and dash around valiently, you can be a complete ass and shoot everything that moves, or you can just play by ear and take any course of action you see fit. Junker has played both games to complettion I think (I've not gotten far into 1 at all) so If he wouldn't mind posting I think he can give a much better review of part I and a very good one on part II. For now I'll leave you witha couple of shots of the Fabled "Vault-man" who appears gratuitously in the manual and in game character screen. He's classic *editors note: hi my name is mike and im not good at posting pictures Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
