Fallout 2 c'est un truc énorme. Un jeu d'une profondeur, d'une richesse et d'une complexité ahurissante qui ravira les fans de RPG tout comme les néophytes en quête d'aventure, de vraie aventure. On pourrait étaler l'article sur 12 pages tellement il y a de choses à dire ; la finition de ce titre est absolument exceptionnelle, ce qui en fait un must-have dans la catégorie des RPG. À ne rater sous aucun prétexte.

Ah, if only Fallout 2 were indeed a new game. Still, its hard to feel bad when you finally get to play a game this great, one which blends combat with a great story, instead of just going for a triangle count so you can "fraggor" your "biznatches." If we could get Anthony Edwards to make a speech at the end, it'd be perfect.

Fallout 2, while most certainly derivative, is only stealing from a proven, beautiful, well-done game, while adding a great deal after that. The innovations and additions to the engine make me wish that Fallouts original and 2 were two halves of the same game, using the Fallout 2 engine. (In fact, the only way this game could have been made better would have been to base the Fallout 2 game you play on the game you finished in Fallout.)

I liked playing through Fallout 2 about as much as I enjoyed playing through the first one. If you can get past the dated graphics, average sound and instability you'll find a very deep and open-ended role-playing game. If you just aren't as taken with Fallout as I am, you might want to wait for a patch. The occasional crash is forgivable, but crashing at the end is a mortal sin.

Our advice: Skip that overpriced movie this weekend and get yourself a copy of Fallout 2--it's the best $30 you can spend on entertainment.
