With nuclear apocalypse looming over the world, several vaults were constructed to contain the best and brightest of humanity. By being shielded from the imminent death, the offspring of these people could reclaim and repopulate the Earth. However, before the entire network could be completed, nuclear war broke out. One of the vaults became militaristic and technology-driven. Using their superior weapons, they were able to claim the surrounding wasteland. The members of this vault formed the Brotherhood of Steel, an organization dedicated to unlocking new and better technologies.
Excellent game that focuses on perfecting the combat in the Fallout 1 and 2 series. This game is mission-based instead of playing in an open world like Fallout 1 or 2. Not so much an RPG in that aspect. But you can pick a team and your teammates gain levels in the same manner as in other Fallout games. And you still have the freedom to choose in what way you want to complete the missions: stealth, long-range, short-ranged, using traps, or combining all of these because you now control a team of several characters! The atmosphere is the same as in Fallout 1 and 2: gory, dark, mature.
It contains a good amount of missions that have been carefully designed in order to provide a terrific turn-based SPECIAL (Strenght, Perception, Endurance, etc.) combat experience.
Underrated must-play for any Fallout fan.
