PostSubject: Fallout 2 REVIEW   Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:08 pm

Fallout 2


Pros

-Epic game in the Fallout universe. Definitely gives you more perspective.
-Atmosphere. The post-apocalyptic mayhem is fantastic.
-More skills that Fallout 3. Has skills for gambling, outdoorsman, and throwing, to name a few.
-More weapons. Spears, plastic explosives, throwing knives, etc.
-The storytelling is great. Story is definitely one aspect that sells that series.



Cons

-Since it is an old game, the graphics are not good.
-It is not a FPS shooter-style like Fallout 3. It's almost like an RTS game. Turn based combat in 2d environments.
-The combat system definitely is painful. It's pretty much click, wait, repeat.
-Takes awhile to learn. Simple things like looting and lockpicking take awhile to pick up.





Fallout 2 is an immersive rpg set in an apocalyptic wasteland. You can create almost any character you can imagine, from a bulky melee warrior to a nimble marksman. Karma also plays a role in this game, as you can steal and loot from peoples homes, and murder whoever you please. When you first start out in the game, it can be hard. It took me nearly 10 minutes to figure out how to loot a corpse. The intuitive combat is good, but it takes awhile to figure out and understand. It can also get a little boring. The story helps give perspective on the fallout universe, and definitely deserves a try from fans of Baldur's Gate, The Elder Scrolls series, Fallout 3, or Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.


Overall: 4/5
Graphics: 2/5
Sound: 3/5
Combat:3/5
Story: 5/5
Depth: 4/5

Dammit i stopped seeding. ummmm i'll try to remember it's like from one of three sites. It's a really good game though. And i completely agree, Oblivion is about 10 times better.

That's pretty much all you have to do. But when I downloaded Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, i had to mess with all these files, replace the exe, and do a lot of other sh!t to get it to work. That was annoying, because you needed the disc to play it
