    Huge adventure is hidden in the details.

    This game has to be one of the greatest games ever. It's a claim which is made often, thus one that needs justification. Firstly, Fallout 2 in relation to it's predecessor. Fallout was undeniably an amazing game, but... Read Full Review

    Although this game has some problems the plot, content, and dialog is among the best I've seen.
