The Japanese game site 4Gamer.net has done a very nice review of Fallout. The site is in Japanese, but I put it through the Babelfish site translator. It's by no means a perfect translation, but you can get the general idea. Here's a quote:
But, in just the under dog, somewhere being the title where
attachment has grown fact. "About the useless child it probably
is the person who is said lovely"?
I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean either. But they definitely seemed to think it's a classic.
Thanks to SharkD and Mikail for letting me know.
