That's where Bethesda dropped the ball. Fallout wasn't just a setting, it had a tight rules system too. Just like D&D isn't just a setting. Bethesda doesn't like the restrictions that real RPG systems impose on their ADD addled target audience - Cimmerian

Restricted Area 'review' at Loadedinc
 
Restricted Area 'review' at Loadedinc [ Game -> Preview ]

More info on Game: Restricted Area

There's a new review of the German version of Restricted Area, the post-apocalyptic Diablo-clone, up at Loadedinc. Well, it calls itself a review, but reads like a preview - the 'reviewer' doesn't speak any German but played the German version of the game, which puts some doubts on how reliable the article is.

The environments in Restricted Area are of the 3-D isometric variety, just like, all together now: Diablo. Only certain items in the environment are destructible. Much like a Diablo hack-fest, you will be faced with a swarm of enemies and need to watch your health carefully. Combat is simple, just click on the creature you wan to kill. Rinse and repeat. The point and click interface is extremely easy to utilize and the inventory and character stat screen are equally easy to manage.

As you gain experience, you can improve your characters attributes and skills. Your inventory is limited by space, so you have to be picky once you begin to progress. Much like Diablo, you will find a lot of items that you con not use quite yet, you will want to down the road. The inventory management screen has a button that will auto arrange your items to maximize your storage (similar to that found in Dungeon Siege). The paper doll interface for equipping your alter ego is a snap to use, and opens and closes with the press of a key. You will be made aware if you advance a level, but you will not be forced to spend points or stop the action at any time.

It's more positive than the preview reported yesterday, at least.
