No, it's a bad sequel for being like a cuckoo in the nest—the same with FO3. These are unrelated games, in all things except for a bit of fiction drapery. FO3 is a TES re-skin with a few cherry picked names from the Fallout IP. FO:NV is FO3 with a few improvements. Arcanum is a better Fallout game than anything after FO2. Wasteland 2 could almost pass for a proper Fallout 3... Which is an awful shame considering it doesn't pass for a Wasteland 2 IMO.
