  1. Fans of the original Fallout games are clearly not going to enjoy this bastardisation of their favourite game, and those who enjoyed the "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance" titles will find Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel to be inferior to that franchise.
  2. What a thermonuclear disappointment. To someone like me, who loved all three Fallout role-playing games on PC, this is a power fist to the face - an insult. [March 2004, p.114]

    Most importantly, though (especially for fans of the PC Fallout), you've got an RPG without any sort of enticing story.

    There's practically no aspect that doesn't appear half-hearted. Black Isle's drawn-out death has undoubtedly poisoned Brotherhood, but it's hard to tell if there was ever a good game here to begin with. [May 2004, p.109]

    Un "hâchez et tranchez" sur le même joli moteur graphique que les Dark Alliance qui sont les références bien connues dans ce sous-genre idiotUn "hâchez et tranchez" sur le même joli moteur graphique que les Dark Alliance qui sont les références bien connues dans ce sous-genre idiot sauf qu'ici c'est le monde de Fallout qui s'avilit dans ce cloaque vidéoludique. La licence Fallout ne méritait pas et n'a jamais mérité un tel traitement, aussi oublierons-nous bien vite cette "erreur" d'un ennui et d'une répétitivité atroces. Full Review »

    Anyone who compares this to the Fallout games on the PC is making a huge mistake. Fallout: BoS is nothing like them, nor is it trying to be. Anyone who compares this to the Fallout games on the PC is making a huge mistake. Fallout: BoS is nothing like them, nor is it trying to be. This is Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance in a post-apocalyptic world, and I think it rocks. It is a raw, unapologetic, violent romp thru a grungy wasteland, and incredibly fun, especially 2-player! What's not to love about beating the crap out of anything and everything that gets in your way? Full Review »
