Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (2004)
Developer: Interplay Entertainment Corp.
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 02/16/2004

The iconic Vault Boy made it into the Skills menu.

Late last year, many were convinced to discover the apocalyptic world of post nuclear holocaust of the Fallout universe because Bethesda Softworks' popularity after the success of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion ensured that the masses would eat Fallout 3 up when it was released. Unfortunately, Brotherhood of Steel - the first console game from the series - failed to make a good impression when it came out. Interplay did a respectable job recreating the world they have firmly established previously in the personal computer releases, resulting in the game's atmospheric setting filled with savagery and rich in mythos. This hack and slash dungeon crawler features the ability to customize the character's attributes, which makes leveling up fun. If the game is less linear in its progression, more complex in its battle mechanics, and more ambitious in its size, it would have been a very serious and powerful entry for the franchise.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
