  1. A very enjoyable game with an intriguing storyline, a captivating environment, and engrossing gameplay.
  2. The game has plenty of swearing, and lots of gore. I like running around nearly dead--you leave a big trail of red wherever you go. Ok, so maybe it is over the top, but at least somebody still has some cajones out there.

    For serious gamers who want a long squad-based game -- it's challenging, it has hours of gameplay, the Fallout universe is faithfully recreated and the production values are top-notch. It's not a game for everyone, though; the difficulty and squad-based strategy will turn some gamers off.
  4. It will push you to be a better gamer, but once complete it has little replay value.
  5. An innovative game with a long single player campaign filled with loads of detail and fun gameplay.
  6. Contains all the best elements of its predecessors, and introduces novelties that will make it popular today.
  7. Many strategy fans will appreciate the depth and Fallout groupies will love the continuity, but some things like control in CTB mode or the pace in the classic style may drop bombs in the wrong places.

    Fallout Tactics is a great game. Anyone who says this doesn't deserve the name "Fallout" hasn't played Fallout. The story is great,Fallout Tactics is a great game. Anyone who says this doesn't deserve the name "Fallout" hasn't played Fallout. The story is great, entertaining, and engaging, and straight out of the Fallout fiction. While the RPG elements of the previous two Fallout installments are mostly absent, Fallout Tactics gives you complete control of each member of your party down to the clothes they wear, the guns they carry, and exactly what they do. As you travel the wastes, you can pick up additional team members and types, making the customizability of this game and replayability immense. I have played and replayed this game multiple times, as the graphics and gameplay have stood up over the years quite well. My only complaint is the linearity of the storyline, but even then you can just go wander the wastelands if you feel like it, which is fun in itself (albeit dangerous). I wish I could find a game as well put together as Fallout Tactics these days. Expand

    No, this does not feel like the Fallout we got used to. But to an already established fan of the series this is a worthy intermediary stepNo, this does not feel like the Fallout we got used to. But to an already established fan of the series this is a worthy intermediary step before the dive into the world of FO3.
    Tactics sports just that - tactical combat, which by itself is fun, but on top of that a decent story is overlayed.

    As a long and big (u got it!) fan of the series i enjoyed the game thoroughly, and played through it a couple of times.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Davvero un degno spin off della mitica serie di fallout, la storia è avvincente ed espande la lore, le meccaniche di gioco sono in tempo reale e fluide e la difficoltà è aumentata perché si controlla una squadra di giocatori, ovviamente ci sono alcuni difetti ma resta un gran bel gioco Expand

It was never meant to be a direct sequel to the first two Fallout titles and yet it gets judged as if it were one time and time again. It's a combat strategy game with some adventure/RPG elements set in the Fallout universe. It also happens to be fairly good. It's aged reasonably well and I recommend it, as long as you're not planning to hold it to the light of the original Fallout titles. Expand

    Random encounters are super frequent, outdoorsman skill allow to skip most of that pointless fights (which actually don't give you anyRandom encounters are super frequent, outdoorsman skill allow to skip most of that pointless fights (which actually don't give you any benefits whatsoever) but it is so frequent that sometime you made only one millimeter on worldmap between another encounter. So that skill is absolutely necessary here not mention other skills which seem to be useless. Its totally linear game there is no free exploring on map so this map could be even removed as its FAKE (you cant discover ANYTHING beside special encounters) For that am give zero. In real strategy you should have every locations available or at least parts of it accessible, visible on map. And you should be commander who lead and plan some strategy make decisions. This would be tactic. Where what you get is linear shooter with Fallout style graphic. Its NOT Fallout just because it have similar gfx and stats system. Without freedom of exploring and entire adventure part that is pointless. They should at least make some poor dialogs and poor quests so it would be modified by fans into Fallout 3 Am played Awaken mod and it almost works as adventure game so cant understand why they cut off best parts and give that shooter. Ok it look good and may keep you busy for while but reality is that they broke game and its bit pointless now. Somehow am enjoyed even that broken game so what would be with all this missing stuff? Definitely epic 10/10 game, but this is zero because am feel its broken. Expand
