Jan 9, 2019At first glance, ATOM might play out like the "Russian Fallout" it appears to be gameplay-wise, but its many layers contain so much more than just a tribute. Fans of old-school RPGs (as well as Soviet nostalgists) will certainly enjoy every single hour (and Ruble) they spend on it.
Jan 23, 2019Overall ATOM RPG stands tall on its own feet making for a great first entry by this dev team into the world of post-apocalyptic isometric RPG survival games.
Jun 25, 2019For an indie-RPG, this game runs well and has a good story attached. There are several characters to choose from and many attributes to learn and adjust as you go. If you were disappointed by Fallout:76, give this one a try as it feels a lot like one would expect a Fallout game to feel, without the disappointment!
Jan 23, 2019As there is no voice-over, all your interaction with the game’s story is text-based, and when the writing is as bad as it is in ATOM RPG, it becomes a chore and all enjoyment of the world is drained out of it. That’s not to say I’m going to stop playing it. As a system it is a genuinely good game, but as a world into which one sinks oneself, it’s viscous.
Feb 3, 2019Very difficult RPG playing in the post-apocalyptic Soviet Union, which is strongly based on Fallout, but never reaches it qualitatively.
Mar 21, 2019In its desire to stick to the original Fallout RPGs, ATOM RPG disregards the lessons CRPGs have learned in the intervening years. Fallen short of both its predecessors and contemporaries in the genre, ATOM RPG .

Apr 29, 2019Probably one of the best post-apocalyptic RPG of the last 20 years... period... Yes even better than Wasteland 2, Atom RPG is a true spiritualProbably one of the best post-apocalyptic RPG of the last 20 years... period... Yes even better than Wasteland 2, Atom RPG is a true spiritual successor to Fallout 1&2 (but not comparable to those Fallout titles that came after). Even if it is a smaller project than its elders, this game greatly delivers. Rich story, interesting NPCs, turn-based combat, original world, original and sometime funny dialogs as in the first 2 Fallouts, excellent rpg mechanics & skill/attribute based dialog options, weapons and items galore, random encounters on world map, crafting, player base, player car, vodka... This game has almost evertything!!
A note for all people crying about the difficulty and claiming having played / or comparing to the original first two Fallout games. Clearly they never did as FO1&2 were as hard if not harder, original Fallout was as much savescum game as this one...
Many funny references to its elders in the dialogs or descriptions also (Fallout 1&2, Fallout New Vegas, STALKER, Wasteland...).
I havent played before 1.8 so i can just review the game with all its features properly working (with little bugs sometimes).… Expand

Ideological heir of Fallout 1/2 with good craft system. Also have a interesting random encounters. A bit likeThe game is masterpiece.
Ideological heir of Fallout 1/2 with good craft system.

A bit like "Planet Alcatraz" series because of setting/humor.
Since top-down turn-based RPG currently it is an endangered species - 10/10
P.S. I hope that the creators will not leave the supporting of game and will improve new features.… Expand
Feb 17, 2022Давно хотел пере пройти fallout 2. Несколько раз начинал, но через 1-2 часа забрасывал игру (игра уже поднадоела). А тут внезапно на торентахДавно хотел пере пройти fallout 2. Несколько раз начинал, но через 1-2 часа забрасывал игру (игра уже поднадоела). А тут внезапно на торентах нашел игру "Рисский fallout" и решил скачать и заценить (в последнее время игры очень быстро надоедают, и не вижу смысла их покупать и парится со стимом). Но после 20 часов игры, я понял что мне игра очень понравилась и надо купить.
В итоге игрой остался очень доволен, прошел с позитивом. большое спасибо разработчикам. и не дорого и качественно ))))
Теперь от разработчиков я жду:

Aug 1, 2019Tl;dr: great homage to Fallout 1&2 and you should definitely buy and play this game instead of yet another (how many years ago you stoppedTl;dr: great homage to Fallout 1&2 and you should definitely buy and play this game instead of yet another (how many years ago you stopped counting?) F1&2 replay. But it has flaws...
1. Overall underdevelopment and quality inconsistency.
At once you have decent quests with variety of options and in another moment - like railway ending to the story of main NPC. Doesn't matter what is your character build, your previous choices - nothing.
In soviet wasteland you can have some NATO weapons, but another, that you can add in your inventory by console will have lines like "...and how this %weapon% got onto soviet soil is a big mystery...". Mayhap, there were some plans to add exNATO settlement of surviving paratroopers? Perhaps, idk, and it's just one of examples.
Some top-weapons requires 70 of their respecting skill (for example, throwing), another 110. Not all builds are equal.
And game consists from 3 main areas. Wastes — the main ones and pretty good, but inconsistent. Dead City — I played after 1.1. and it's rather solid piece, however underground (subway) travel is frustrating. Mountain pass of something is delivered straight from Early Access. Boring as hell.
And nothing will be changed, devs are making new stand-alone DLC instead patches and free ones. Wise financial decision, but, well, gotta to subtract 1 out of 10. It's ok, nobody starts perfect.
2. Is it really a RPG or they just stole F1 title?
Hard to answer. Skills are real pain, they are scarce, good ones are only combat-oriented and limits your character build imagination. For example, you can't make weak your sniper/hunter/very decent person with a shotgun pass checks for strength of weapon because it's in automatic weapons tree and in the end. And speaking about checks: conversations mostly consist from them. Checking your strength, your dexterity, your luck, checking on your mother, checking on your sister... Oh, well, sorry. And your character phrase choices in conversation are always like [SARCASM]. Even in that game-not-to-mention it was only one of the options. 8/10 now.
3. They took things from F1&2 and made them worse.
For example, do you remember JHP and AP bullets in those masterpieces? First make more damage, second has +50%, well, armor piercing and half of damage, but overall game system lead that there were some enemies that can be only damaged by APs, because they are heavily armored. Here system is much simpler, I must say casual, and APs (except special experimental weapons, btw, that are nothing but junk without original cartridges) just add 10% to, well, armor piercing. Guns does not have own armor piercing capability, so in Soviet Wasterussia cartridge shoots the gun. And btw, shotguns are lame. Remember combat shotgun burst and you, savescumming? Relax.
Some another examples: stupider AI than 20 years ago (really, an anti-achievement, guys), trade system (the best place to trade is caravan, not an actual shops in the cities), repeating quests to get money are really frustrating, money doesn't matter much from some point anyway, game ending includes only fate of the settlements, companions and yourself, not the people you've met and changed their lives for better or worse, map is really flat (only one floor everywhere), no gun modifications (although there is primitive crafting system that allows you, for example home-make a sniper rifle with optical sight, you can't make an optical sight and place it on any other weapon, nor can other NPCs) and so on.
4. They took things from F1&2 and didn't make them better.
For example, sex and relations in game. In 1997 and 1998 you couldn't have had the latter, but you was allowed to hire a companion for a night. Same here. Remember things, that evolved in games for last twenty years, remember Mass Effect? Nothing here.
Games did progress. Copying the classics in everything is not a wise decision.
Well, I've add some words about only 2-3 replayability (first, another gender with another choices, burning the wastes for bloody ending, you, murderer of millions), intoxication with way too much easter eggs and nostalgie, but, I'll scare you off. Go and play, fellow fallouter. You have like 20 minutes to get to the steam, while fuze is still burning ;)… Expand
Jul 11, 2022The game is unfinished and has a lot of bugs. And the story was boring and not really interesting.
