Fallout Games Fallout 1 2 & Tactics Inclu All Updates
Main article: Fallout (video game) Released in 1997, Fallout is the spiritual successor to the 1988
hit Wasteland. The protagonist of the game is tasked with recovering a water chip to replace the
chip that broke in his/her home, Vault 13. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic
southern California, beginning in the year 2161. It was originally intended to run under the
GURPS role-playing game system, but a disagreement with Steve Jackson, creator of GURPS,
over the game's violent content required the development of a new system, the SPECIAL System.
Fallout's atmosphere and artwork are reminiscent of post-WWII America and the nuclear paranoia
that was widespread at that time.
Main article: Fallout 2
Fallout 2 was released in 1998 using a slightly-modified form of the engine used in the original
Fallout. Taking place 80 years after the original game, Fallout 2 centers around a descendant of
the Vault Dweller, the protagonist of Fallout. The player assumes the role of the Chosen One as
he tries to save Arroyo, his village, after several years of drought. The game featured several
improvements over the first game, including the ability to set attitudes of NPC party members
and the ability to push people who are blocking doors. However, it also included several changes
to the game world, including significantly more pop culture jokes and parodies, such as multiple
Monty Python-referencing special random encounters, and self-parodying dialogue that broke the
fourth wall to mention game mechanics.
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood Of Steel
Fallout: Tactics was released in early 2001 to mixed reviews. Although it was given high scores
by reviewers (PC Gamer gave it an 85%), many fans were disappointed by the game. Fallout
Tactics focuses on tactical combat rather than role-playing; the new combat system included
different modes, stances, and modifiers, but the player had no dialogue options. Most of the
criticisms of the game came from its incompatibility with the story of the original two games,
not from its gameplay. Tactics is the first Fallout game to not require the player to fight in a
turn-based mode, and it is also the first to allow the player to customize the skills, perks, and
combat actions of the rest of the party. Fallout: Tactics includes a multi-player mode that allows
players to compete against squads of other characters controlled by other players. Unlike the previous
two games, which are based in California, Fallout: Tactics takes place in the

FALLOUT TACTICS: A departure from the character -heavy RPG of traditional Fallout games, Interplay's
Fallout Tactics is instead a squad-based tactical RPG, utilizing both turn-bases and real-time mechanics.
As part of a split faction of the Brotherhood of Steal, the player controls a team that attempts to grow
and expand across Fallout's barren wastelands by recruiting outsiders to embark on combat-heavy missions.
Though vastly different from other Fallout titles, Fallout Tactics is a solid and enjoyable title that fans
of the series would do well to explore.
