    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 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.

    If you like console actions games with rpg elements. You will like this game. Best played co-op, but still fun solo.

    The only disappointment I've had is not being able to trade caps or ammo and not being able to add or remove players in the middle of a game.

    I like this game, it's not like Fallout 1 & 2 on the PC but it's almost there, if you're a fan of FO for the PC you will like this one as well, it's a hit when playing it co-op with some of your mentally disfunctional friends and laughs about all the funny speeches throughout the game.

  1. A decent example of the genre and has some creative design, but it won't blow any minds or win many awards.
  2. What makes an otherwise solid action RPG mediocre is the obscenely slow and tedious beginning. [Mar 2004, p.101]

    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]
