2.0 out of 5 stars A minor early work from a master... 14 April 2014
Fallout dates from 1998. In computer game terms it's an archaeological find from the dawn of that brief decade when PCs ruled the gaming world.

It's also a very important artefact since it has spawned not only the later Fallout games but also a few years later lead to the creation of Baldur's Gate, possibly still the greatest game ever.

So why the poor review ?

Unlike a previous reviewer for me the interface wasn't too much of a problem. "Using" items from your inventory is a little tricky. You have to right click to get the identifying binoculars and then left click and drag to the appropriate action. Other actions - managing inventory, reloading weapons (far easier by right clicking until reload appears on the gun and then left clicking than using the inventory to click and drag - less action point intensive too), equipping weapons and armour are easy enough since every RPG since has used a similar system.

Selecting the other vault as your first target destination takes you straight through "Sandy Town" (or something similar) which then becomes your launch pad for your first missions.

Fallout is very free flowing allowing you to wander across the landscape at will. There is also a distinct lack of the obvious NPC's standing by to give you career level appropriate missions.

Sounds great ? It isn't. With a master clock clicking it is easy to walk back and forth aimlessly. Mission triggers are subtle enough that they can be missed. Spoiler alert (minor). An early mission involves helping a town with a giant scorpion problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic game 11 Dec. 2013
By I.E
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Classic game that has plenty of humour to make up for its dated apperance. However modern PCs can have issues running it for some reason (The picture has random bits of white speckles and blocks of image missing) but there are plenty of patches online that fix it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very long, pretty cool post-apocalyptic RPG 8 May 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an RPG in which you choose your treats and skills in the beginning and then start exploring the post-nuclear-war world in California or something.

What made me curious about the game were the reviews on Amazon, according to which "Fallout" seemed to be an adventure full of unusual opportunities - in the sequel "Fallout 2" you were even supposed to be able to work as a pimp. Something like that in a computer game seemed more than extraordinary back then.

The game has no tutorial. There is just an introduction in which you are explained that there has been a nuclear war and an entire generation has spent their lives in an underground vault. Now the device for producing clean water is breaking down. It is imperative to get a certain spare part within 150 days. So you are to leave the vault and go looking for the widget. After that intro which is really cool, you create your character and start playing.

Then you walk around in a third person view. The navigation is unusually perverse - when you reach the edge of the area you're currently in, you get a big map with squares representing other areas, you click on one and then you are teleported into a point in that area. To go to a different city, you get another map with dots representing cities and blackness in between. You click on the city and then spend some time travelling there. That is, the time runs forward and nothing happens, unless there is some kind of a random encounter along the way. If it sounds complicated and obscure, it's because it is.

Also, I found it impossible to decide what to do. There were a myriad of displays and commands. I walked around for a while, killed a few giant rats, talked to a guy and still had no idea where I was supposed to go or what to do.
