In a post-apocalyptic future, a society known as the Brotherhood of Steel is born, wielding powerful weapons and armor from the time before the war, they seek to bring some form of order to the wastelands of what used to be the United States. As a new member(s) to the Brotherhood, you'll soon find yourself separated from your comrades and forced to contend with a variety of missions and challenges alone. Radscorpions, Super-Mutants and Deathclaws are all in the Brotherhood's way, and bringing an end to their tyranny will certainly make the wasteland a safer place.

Brotherhood of Steel is an action game set in the Fallout universe. The Brotherhood members are well armed and carry full clips of ammo (which does run out). New weapons of various nature can be found and equipped to bring new tactics. Shooting down enemies earns experience points and these points are used to improve the attributes of various individual skills. Additionally, your character will have to contend with finding keys and other objects, protecting NPCs and jumping over bottomless pits.

Product Placement

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel features a product placement for the real life Bawls Guarana energy drink. This may be jarring to fans of the Fallout series, who are used to having Nuka-Cola as the post-apocalyptic drink of choice.


Fan response to this game was so overwhelmingly negative that Interplay actually shut down the official Brotherhood of Steel message board. Furthermore, the game's section on the NMA forums (one of the biggest Fallout forum) is called: "Fallout: Piece of Shit (PS2, XBOX, My Lower Intestine)".

Various reasons for the negative reception can be found in this writeup.
