Ever wondered what it would be like after a nuclear war? Well now is your chance to find that out.




As resources grow scarcer countries are increasingly starting wars to gain new. The world’s nuclear powers starts to bomb each other with a-bombs and the world seize to exist. Fortunately your relatives managed to get a place in a nuclear proof underground bunker called Vault 13.  The game starts with you taking your first steps outside the vault to explore the outside world. I actually love the story of Fallout, it’s so fictional yet so very real.


The outside world is really a scary place, lots of deserts, deserted buildings, strange creatures and humans. To defend yourself you have a pretty good arsenal of weapons, for example shotguns and automatic pistols.

A lot of enemies you will face are just simple cave rats, or mutated larger rats. But some enemies are really scary, for example mutated green people with large knives.


In the beginning of the game you can choose between three pre-made characters, the developers have managed to get a pretty good blend. You have to take into consideration what’s the character is good at. Usually you have to compromise between different skills such as small arms, energy guns, doctor, strength and much more. On top of that the characters have different personal characteristics that they develop during the game. For an inexperienced RPG player you might think that the character statistics is overkill.


As for the graphics Fallout is presented in a usual RPG manner. The graphics resembles games like Baldur’s Gate or Diablo 2. However I must praise Interplay for the great cut scenes. They are done in a true Spielberg manner and really give the game that little bit of extra.


The soundtrack is also pretty good; it’s not that dominant as in other role-playing games. So it’s mostly pretty easy background tunes but they really create a good post apocalyptic type of feeling.


During your quest in the new world you will encounter and get to know new people. Many of them can help you and would even like to join you. As they join you they will make a nice addition to your own skills.


Fallout really is a great Role Playing Game and it is one of the first games in years that I have really felt excited about.
