A. Do you like real time stratedgy/tacticle games like X-Com?

B. Would you be put off of a game because:-

1. It's storyline is very linear
2. It's set in the Fallout universe between FO1 and FO2, but manages to contradict both in small ways?
3. The 'real life' weapons don't match real life very well?

If you said 'yes' to A and 'no' to all of B, go buy it!! Make SURE you patch to it V1.27 before playing!!!

If you said 'no' A and 'yes' to any of B. Save your money and keep playing FO1/2.

FOT is a good game. I have some friends who are not so keen on the FO series, but they still buy it. Cos it's a really good game.

I suppose the game is okay.

The major menace in the game are the robots - and they way they do the weapon balancing, if you aren't good at a very specific narrow range of weaponry, you're screwed (the only thing that works on robots are very powerful heavy weapons or the larger scale energy weapons).

I think they way they did this sucks, and furthermore I dont know how they did it to make the robots so tough (I pulled up the maps later in the game with the game's map editors and I cant find how they gave the robots such robust resistance to normal damage - because the robot characters themselves in .ent form dont have particularly formidable threshold/resistance to damage). It may be either the "tight nuts" robot trait or the fact that almost all robots are level 10+ that does it, I dunno (I heard a figure once that the humanoid robots have a damage threshold of 23 points for normal damage).

-----
When you get the game, invest the time to download the 16-18mb patch file (to v1.27), and go find a mod that fixes alot of the game's mistakes.

Since I dont think you'd get a very good first impression if you simply played the game start to finish before messing with it (like it's wise to do for most games).

Im working on a mod right now to fix the game's errors (simply changes stats on items and stuff), and many mods are already published.

I voted "hell yea!"

FOT is a good game, just not a good Fallout game. If you can handle the off-the-wall, linear storyline, by all means, get it. And, IP needs all the money they can get smile

And as an added bonus, you can play all the fanmaps that I've, Endocore, WalkterN, etc. have been making! :twisted:

Oh, and don't forget OTB's campaign....

Vote, ''Yea, it's ok.

U are most likely to expect it to be like FO 1-2 witch both included things FOT just doesn't feature. Though it comes with the same name its quite a different game. Note i am NOT stating my dislike of the game in the above. I think of FOT as a fine episode in the line of 3 games.
