4.0 out of 5 stars Fallout 2: Perpare to lose sleep 13 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well if you haven't heard Fallout before then you are missing a critical piece of gaming history.

Why is it so good?

The game itself puts your character into the midst of a post nuclear wasteland, that used to be America, simpy trying to survive the wastes.
As part of a tribe that the protagonist of the first Fallout set up, you find out that you are his descendant.
But not all is well...your village is suffering under the strain of background radiation, mutated cows and faltering crops.
So you are tasked by your village elder to find something that can sort everything out.

There's a very quick summary of the start of the game for you.
But that simply isn't it. The game keeps on getting deeper and deeper yet all the while remains fun. Though by todays standards, the graphics are primitive (anmimated GIF files I think). However, what they do to the game easily makes you forget about that. Lets say you got your character a shotgun and trained them up with "Small Arms", then he/she'd be good with it right?
But lets look at it in combat. If your character scores an esteemed critical hit, you are rewarded with a very well detailed death animation. Characters heads can be blown off, half of thier midsection will be removed or if you like explosives, a muddy and bloody puddle is left after the bodies disintergrate.
So that makes it more fun, but the sheer fact that there is so much you can do. You can train the skills you choose at the start of the game to further develop whatever character you want to play. As the game goes along and you gain levels, you are rewarded with a perk every few levels that significantly improoves the way you play the game (Perk: Mr Fixit- Gain skill with mechanics).

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge sequel to the original classic 22 Oct 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A game you simply MUST play- Fallout 1 is a classic and the sequel builds upon it providing a vast open world to explore. The story isn't quite as good and it is more tongue in cheek, in many ways it improves on the original but I still prefer Fallout 1 for its innovation. However, Fallout 2 is vast and has so many different quests to embark upon, so many characters to meet, so many choices to make- amazing replay value, more replay value than any other game I have ever played STILL. I have been through this game repeatedly and have now lost count- dated now but the atmosphere is so intoxicating. The freedom of choice is captivating- such an open world and so many different choices to make, you will be immersed. It has a dark edge as you pick the bones of human society in a harsh world that twists your (very customisable) characters mind. This is the most fun I have ever had in any game ever before or since! Download all patches, including the critters to get the kids put back in the game. Fallout 1 is the original and best but this sequel is amazingly enjoyable- its an oldie now but I still love to play it- sublime

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallout mania 2 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember playing this game ages ago and can still hear the cries of people i've torn asunder, ripped apart with miniguns and blown to kingdom come with Plasma rifles and rocket launchers...ahh bliss...

You start as a weakling little follower with the traditional blue vault suit but the you are set in to the world to find the G.E.C.K to save the vault - where you travel all over to new locations, are able to recruit, kill or sell as slave - followers and can aqquire bigger armour, badder weapons and encounter tough opponents to which should meet the end of your plasma rifle - or if you want practise - head to the local town and use the locals as moving targets - i did!

All in all - Fallout 2 is a brilliant game - which is why i have ordered my copy to arrive in a few days!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallout 2: life after nuclear holocaust 3 Sep 2008
As I start writing this, Fallout 3 is looming on the horizon. With its imminent release, I decided to "brush up" on the previous games and decided to give Fallout 2 another go. Some 10 years ago, I initially bought it only to get overwhelmed by the sheer size of the game but I wasn't going to make the same mistake this time!

Oh yes, Fallout 2 is big. Not enormous, granted, but that would have come at the expense of the immense detail that went into the game. Every town or city has its own story and unlike the Baldur's Gate series and its ilk, you often have to squeeze quests out of people instead of them being thrown in your face which is refreshing for a change.

Once you get started, though, you're hooked. Don't let it overwhelm you - take your time. Don't be afraid to write down some things because it's easy to lose the plot. One of Fallout's weak points is the lack of a journal so it can become hard to remember who is where but this is easily forgiven seeing how interesting many of the quests are. You won't find any "kill X monsters" quests here, no sir.

The combat is turn based and is really brilliant. The range of weapons is staggering and some can even be updated. Couple this with different firing modes, different types of ammo and you got plenty of choice on how to proceed in combat. Blasting an opponent to pieces with a well aimed shot remains really satisfying.

So what you got is a big game that has a brilliant story, doesn't take itself too seriously all the time and where you can really do things the way YOU want. The few negatives are easily forgiven: yes, the random encounters during travelling can become tedious and the critical damage can cause suddent death during combat but over all, it's game that is still hard to improve upon.

Bethesda has had their work cut out for them - let's see if they can match Fallout 2's qualities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic and a Must-Have 25 April 2007
By C. E. Fulbright - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the demo of the first Fallout game years ago off of a demo disk that a friend of mine got in the mail. Suffice it to say that I bought the original Fallout shortly thereafter and became enamoured by even the idea of a sequel. However, unlike poorly written sequels to boxoffice smash hits Fallout 2 delivered with absolutism. Not only were the game's core competencies improved, but the entire scope of the game had been expanded. The developers kept what they had done well in the first game and retooled things that had needed work. It wasn't long before Fallout 2 had taken the highest spot on my video game hierarchy.

The quality of the game though is not entirely recognized the first time through. I throughly enjoyed playing through the game the first time, but I soon realized that on my second and third times through I was still finding a vast number of differences. You see, Fallout is not like a typical game that is wholly linear. There are many different ways to reach the end, and major subplots can be avoided, skipped or completely overlooked on any single time through the game. Different paths or methods or styles can therefore be used to complete the game. I no longer judge a game on how much it challenges me or how difficult it is to finish it. I consider the whole value of the entertainment that I derive from it. Hence, the long-standing value of the game has become its replayability.

I have played many games in my life. Some of them have provided far more intense entertainment than Fallout 2 and others have challenged me more. However, none have come so close as to match the level of long-standing entertainment that I have derived from this single game. Clearly, Fallout 2 was the best video game purchase I have ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallout from Fallout 12 Feb 2007
By Lynn Bodoni - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fallout 2 has everything that gamers loved in Fallout 1, and even more. This is a game for adults, as it has all sorts of sexual situations (no nudity or sex depicted onscreen, though), violence, death, and drugs. As with the first Fallout, the gamer does not have to choose one particular style of character. Diplomats, thieves, and tanks can all win the game.

The game starts off with a Quest, just as in Fallout 1. Along the way, the character encounters other people with their own problems, NPCs that will join and add their own skills to the party, and just plain Easter eggs. The NPCs can now wear armor, and the player can tell the NPCs to take off their armor, put away their weapons, try not to hit the PC while using a burst weapon, and the amount of drug use that's allowed. The NPC party members can have skills such as Science, Healing, and Repair, and will attempt to perform those tasks for the player. The PC can also shove any character aside, so that the PC won't have to wait for someone to drift out of the doorway or corridor. The game has some improvements on the original in other ways, too. For instance, when looting a body or container, the player can choose to "take all" instead of transferring the ammo, weapons, armor, and whatever else in one click. This is very handy.

There are plenty of side quests to do, and lots of areas to explore. It's possible to get a running car, and upgrade it a couple of times. The car serves as both transportation and storage area. Some weapons and one kind of armor can be upgraded, plus the character itself can have some modifications.

As a general rule, I don't particularly care for futuristic games, but Fallout 1 & 2 are so engrossing, and require such puzzle solving, that I really loved both of them.

This game is a lot of fun, and has plenty of replay value. I strongly recommend playing the first Fallout before this game, because there are a couple of spoilers in this game.

(Edited because I made a couple of typos)

5.0 out of 5 stars A different, and far superior, experience than Fallout 3 6 Nov 2010
By Vincent M. Martino - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am writing this review because it seems that most people want to compare this game to Fallout 3. The similarities end at the title and setting. If you go in expecting a shoot-em-up, you are going to be disappointed.

This is, however, the single best RPG experience in gaming history, by far. I've been an avid gamer for 20 years, starting with the Atari 2600, and in those two decades, this is the purest role-playing game I've seen, and yet it melds perfectly with sandbox gameplay. The only part of the game that isn't pure sandbox is the tutorial.

The gameplay is sometimes overly complicated, but that is what makes this game wonderful - one could kill an enemy through frontal assault, stealth, deception, drug overdose, even under the guise of healing them. Missions can be accomplished through dialogue, combat, or even convincing someone else to do it. One can play a doctor, vagabond, leader, ninja, brute or genius, whatever the player wants to create. (My personal favorite run through was as a dog whisperer.)

The storyline is deep and intriguing, with lore to rival any game. Characters are unique and inspired, and the graphics have dated wonderfully - everything is still distinguishable and smooth, despite the game being over a decade old.

Many would claim I only enjoy this game through "nostalgia goggles" - well, I didn't bother to pick this up until after all the fallout 3 hype. For the price, can you really hesitate to give it a try for yourself?

5.0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary 23 Mar 2011
By jvlynam - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, it's the 2nd entry. Yes, it's just an improved version of the original. There is a world of difference to be had in the ideas and innuendo rooted in the lore, setting the stage for some of the best the genre will ever see. If you want a dose of the origins of Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 3, this is a must play. Granted, there are stark differences in graphic quality AND gameplay, but with technology advancements of over a decade between the entries, would you expect any less?
True fans of the series can all relate with this game, but if you're looking for something similar to the new generation of what gaming is today- be warned that the differences contained in Fallout 2 are probably not what you're looking for. Fallout 2 has turn-based combat and a plethora of options to be performed on just about everything in it's environment-regardless of whether or not these actions will be successful. That's one of the charms of not having a generic "action" button that only appears on objects that you can interact with.
On top of that, there are (were?) an abundance of mods and easy use mod programs available for free download to tweak your game and it's simplicity only embraces this even more. Fallout 2 was an absolute sleeper hit back in '99 that was shipped in bundle packs as a free sample for other games like Baldur's Gate and it's ilk. I'm very glad I stumbled upon this game and it is what has sparked the agonizing wait for (the fabled, then) Fallout 3. Whether you agree/disagree, like/dislike my review here, if you're a fan of RPG's you owe it to yourself to own this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fallout 2 Requires The cd To Play! 19 Oct 2013
By Keon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was so excited to play this game. But then when I got it I tried to install it (had trouble with that)and then finally when I'm in the main menu. I pressed play and then It said ERROR! Fallout 2 Requires The cd To Play! I went to programs an then went to Black Isle like it told me to and then I went to the file Fallout 2. And then when I selected it, it said to me the same thing. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it and I tried patches other programs to help me butt It keep saying the same thing. This was a huge disappoint and caused me to stay up multiple nights trying to play it. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this.
