Looks like it would have been good, but, if this was finished, Fallout would not be being made by Bethesda, and well, Bethesdas Fallout games are much better then the older ones, i hate the view on the old ones it sucks.

besides, fallout van buren had no effect over bethesda. the only reason why bethesda is making fallout is because bethesda is one of the branches in interplay, which cut itself off before interplay died. they werent able to get the rights to fallouts engine, and thus lost the ability to make the old fallout games. this birthed the new fallout 3 engine.

Let us stick to the fact that tastes differ AudioGhostâ„¢.
As an old school Fallout fan I would have preferred Van Buren over Bethesda's Fallout 3, which IMO ruined the series with horrible ideas and content that appealed to people who never cared about Fallout otherwise.

I rather would have had it that Fallout had died rather than being zombie resurrected by Bethesda in order to appeal for the 'for lulz' crowd.

Fallout started as a hard PnP RPG for which Isometric Viewpoint is ideal before it was turned into a FPS/Stat hybrid (stats do not make a game an RPG), loosing many elements that made it good.

i agree. after having played fallout 3, i bought fallout 2 and it was way different.
though the turn based fighting was a mess and you almost always had no chance to survive at all because you never have enough AP to reload weapons and shoot.
but the game was fun.
it has a different lore and a different style.
also i hate the way you level up in fallout3.
even if you play it without addons, by level 10 you're already almost a god armed like a 10-man-squad and it gets boring...

i hope you'll keep working on this, fixing bugs and have a difficulty option which doesnt make enemies AI stupid, but just lets you have more healthpacks etc...
