Fallout 2 review


Completed Fallout 1 already? How do you rate that game? Since you're done with that game, why not give Fallout 2 a try? You'll enjoy it, though the graphics ain't too bad, the voice acting are great. And this time, with Dogmeat back, Tandi's retiring, and you, a tribal turns hero.

The gameplay is still pretty much the same, but with additional weapons and you're able to take item with just a click away, with the new 'Take All' option. And stealing becomes even more fun as NPCs carry better items. Sick of humans? Get a ghoul to join your party, sick of ghoul? How about a big, bad mutant? No mutant for you? What about your own customizable robot? Yeah...

New traits are available like Sex Appeal, and new perks are created. Stealing becomes harder? Why not use 'drugs' on people to make stealing easier?

New guns? Cool! How about new armor? Cool! Don't like playing nice? Wipe out a town to get the biggest, evil reputation ever. Sick of shopkeeper selling too high? Just blow him away and take his stuff. Sick of being lonely? Why not get married?

Gameplay 10 out of 10

Pros: This game has total freedom, you can do whatever you want, shoot whoever you want, not too bad for the graphics though, but even after you've completed the game, you can still play. Choosing gender also affects the story line a little.

Cons: Pretty much the same from the old Fallout, but its still fun.

Graphics 9 out of 10

Pros: Though not highly detailed, everything looks real, and even 'talking heads' look cool. And great environment too.

Cons: Not highly detailed in the arsenal area, but it still looks realistic.

Replay Value 10 out of 10

Pros: Don't want to restart the whole game again? Want to continue your job and wipe out Rad-Scorpions? Go ahead.

Cons: You'll get sick and tired of it soon, but you can still create a new character.

Story line 10 out of 10

Pros: Playing as a male or female have certain changes in the game, great story about how you must find a 'G.E.C.K' in order to save your dying village.

Cons: No complains.

Audio 9 out of 10

Pros: Nice sound effects, sounds from guns and even battle cries.

Cons: The creepy music from Fallout 1 is still here, better shut the background music.

Overall 9 out of 10
