Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Fallout 2 is the sequel to 1997's critically acclaimed Role Playing Game of the Year, which took RPGing out of the dungeons and into a dynamic apocalyptic retro-future.

Adventure in the wasteland as long as you want - all-new story line features no time limits, tough choices with bigger consequences, a car for faster travel, and a variety of new locations such as mobster-infested New Reno.

Interact with more than 30 intelligent and lifelike NPCs; equip them, arm them and teach them skills - just make sure they're on your side!

Advance your character through 30 levels and learn over 100 skills and "perks" including weapons mastery and shamanistic martial arts.

Brandish a whole new arsenal of customisable weapons against bigger and tougher droids, mutants, ghouls, flesh-eating plants and other post nuclear abominations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic RPG - Unbeatable 12 Sept. 2003
I will be short and to the point, to begin with anyway: this is my favourite RPG of all time. Nope, don't question or agrue, buy/play/see for yourself.

When Fallout was release way back in '97 or thereabouts I remember a small amount of excitement. It gave freedom to do whatever you wanted near enough with so many little twists and secrets you could play it several times through and still not get them all. Turn-based combat with different zones to aim for, shoot/whack your opponent in the eyes and he gets blinded, shoot/whack him in the head and he can be knocked unconcious. Fighting or bluffing your way to the end are equally possible. NPC characters who would join you in your quest. Hundreds of items to be found and a massive area to explore of your own accord in your own fashion.

Well, number 2 came in '98 and I bought it on the day of release.
Much the same as the original in style but with so much more. Lots of different weapons and items, from the lowly spear to Avenger Minigun and Leather Jacket to the mighty Power Armor Mk2. A Huge area to explore, hundreds of different non-player characters to meet human or otherwise (argh! Deathclaws!). More NPC's to join your group and aid in your adventure. The storylines are well scripted and interlinked with so many quests to complete and even more ways to complete them. Much more humour, if you can find them there's the Monty Python's Bridge of Death, a StarTrek shuttle craft, an Ex-President Nixon doll with a untrustworthy feel to it and countless other funny quirks to be discovered.

Your character gains *perks* or special abilities throughout the game on top of the ones you can choose at the beginning such as Finesse, Sex Appeal, Gifted.

Fallout 2 i thought when i saw it on the shelf, hmmm.
Having not played fallout at the time i looked at the back of the box and thought, "this looks ok".
Little did i know that i had just picked up the greatest rpg ever made.
The first thing that amazed me about fallout 2 was the depth of character creation, with an amazing list of stats and skills(perks) to upgrade as well as some rather "interesting" traits i was instantly hooked, after creating my character from scratch i took to the game, at first the learning curve was steep but after a couple of hours i couldnt stop playing.
The gritty dark atmosphere of a post nuclear future was a whole new concept for me and has now become an obsession thanks to fallout, the game world is dark detailed, intersting and huuuuuge.The towns have bars casinos addicts on the corners a bundle of sub quests each and the best bit is the game is free roaming! you can do what you want when you want, including having a team of npcs to help you and getting a car.
The amount of items weapons and armour to be had is mind boggling as is the storyline and length of game, there is a lot of humour in this game, all dark and the gameplay is satisfying in every sense, you will be hooked from start to finish as i was.
this game swallowed my life and left me aching for more at the end, with only a few minor gripes due to glitches but these are easily overcome, if you havent played this game buy it now it is FANTASTIC, and i still havent done it justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Father, Like Son 27 Mar. 2003
The noir, post-apocalyptic world of Brian Fargo is back! With all its squeaky-clean bug fixes, a slightly more developed interface and a plot dissimilar enough from the first chapter to make it a whole new world of fun/pain/intrigue. Of course, the basic recipe is there, the old "Get this to save that and then destroy them" do, but it just works so well, I'm not complaining in the slightest.
Boom. Fallout 2 is the worthy sequel of the first hit, and in all, the gameplay has only improved. It has been made easier for those gamers who are scavenging maniacs, picking up weapons and ammunition for later use, its interface has also taken in a few changes, and most importantly, the people you pick up aren't just NPC's (non-player characters) who stick around. They don't charge you for carrying your stuff, they can actually use it, and you can also help them with how to act with an easy-to-use tactics interface. Just as fun and as plotty as Fallout, maybe a more appropriate title would have been Fallout, Mark 2? But hey, it still remains an excellent game. A must for role-players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, just a small point... 3 Jun. 2004
Like the other people who have reviewed this I recently dug it out and started playing it again, it's absolutely fantastic.
One VERY IMPORTANT point, however: if you buy this, be sure to download and install the patch update from Fileplanet or somewhere BEFORE you start playing. If you decide to update halfway through your adventure, you'll find that all of your save data won't work, as I did to my great annoyance.
Anyway, I absolutely love this game. It's good to see realistic language in a game (swearing is strong but relatively infrequent, unless you have Myron in your group), and as mentioned below, the Bridge of Death is hilarious. You have to have seen The Holy Grail to know how to get past it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best 2 April 2003
This is a fantastic game.
Look around on the web, and you'll find that despite being an old game is still has a huge and dedicated following. Its main strength is the way you can (and do) solve the puzzles in so many different ways. It's not like some "open ended" games where the alternate methods are never used. Talk to someone else about a quest you've just completed and like as not you'll find they solved it in a whole different way, each of you thinking it was the obvious thing to do.
A huge game, with endless replayability, this should be part of every gamer's collection. Be warned: It may eat your social life.
