    Fun, intelligent game, lots of gameplay.

    Fallout 2 had a lot to live up to when it carried forth the banner of the original Fallout, which set forth a wonderfully original product and almost singlehandedly returned the classic computer RPG -...

    To those new to the series, this game can be a bit confusing, but take the chance to sit down and it will be worth your while. Fallout 2 features more laughs than the first with more Easter Eggs and ...

    Absolute Masterpiece for its time.

    Fallout 2 is probably one of my favourite games I have ever played in my lifetime. The whole post-apocalyptic setting and landscape, reminiscent of the Mad Max films with biker punks, mutants and o...

    Huge adventure is hidden in the details.

    Rated on November 09, 2008 by Kraeg

    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 ...

    Not just one of the best sequels ever made, Fallout 2 is also a legitimate contender for best game of all time.

    Rated on September 09, 2009 by CaseyMJones

    To me, the Fallout series is now the video game world's equivalent of The Godfather. The original was an instant classic still regarded as a masterpiece. The sequel is one of the best sequels ever mad...

    Although this game has some problems the plot, content, and dialog is among the best I've seen. It has a non-linear plot line, meaning you can choose your own path. Although there are some bugs in it ...
