    Massive improvement over fallout 3 under the hood. It feels the way an fpsrpg should: with gun play as solid as the gameplay. I'd really love to see a mod remake of fo2 with this engine.

    It is a good FPS. It is a terrible RPG, but the FPS mechanics are greatly improved I concur.

    Yea, it's a good FPS. But I don't play Fallouts for the FPS element... That's not what Fallout is supposed to be about.

    It's a rock solid shooter although the enemies are bullet sponges, and I love the gun modding mechanics. But remaking Fallout 2 in this engine is the worst idea in the history of the universe.

    Yeah, the FPS mechanics are amazing. As much as I love the older Fallout games and as much time I've spent on playing them - I don't think that I'll be able to return to them due to the outdated graphics and gunplay anymore. F4 spoiled me regarding that matter. But sadly the RPG aspects are nearly non-existent in 4. :seriouslyno:

    The FPS mechanics are ok, but I seriously miss DT/DR and different kinds of ammunition. Also, the player character feels a bit clunky. I think a high AG perk that enables a dodge-roll would have been really good.

    Cool idea! And this dodge-roll should only be avaible without the Power Armor, so there's a reason to not use this OP armor.

    Exactly. Rolling around with power armour would look ridiculous, this isn't WH40k: Spehss Mehreen.
    Although, some proper chainswords and bolters to purge the orcs... But no, Fallout's PA pauldrons are way too small for proper purging.

    The FPS mechanics are good but I've played better FPS games that didn't require me to edit every ini file to make mouse aim feel like it should. Still it's good.

    The shooter has definately improved by a mile.
    but just because this has improved, doesnt mean we should remake F2. I dont know about you, the graphics in F2 and F1 are still pretty good.

    Well, there is a mod to remake FO1 in the NV engine (Fallout the Story) that actually looks pretty promising, assuming that goes well and is actually ever finished there's no reason they couldn't do FO2. Though of course the FO4 engine would be terrible for a FO2 remake due to the lack of skills, though there may yet be a workaround for that.

    The FPS mechanics are decent, but I do miss the DT/DR and the different ammo types of New Vegas as well.

    Has anyone played RAGE? The game migth be an unfinished mess, but the fps mechanics and the enemies where pretty fucking great! The zombie type of enemy was insanely fun to play against, they dodge and use the walls and tubes in ceilengs to move like highly acrobatic monkeys. The raider type of enemy use cover and moves a lot, they try to dodge your attacks too and they will try to flank you. And then there is fallout 4 (and skyrm and fallout 3 and oblivion...) combat mechanics, where the enemies just stand still shooting you, if it is a meele type of enemy they just run at you in straigth line ignoring all the damage you do to them, sometimes from time to time they migth take cover but thats just sometimes and if you turn up the difficulty level the enemies become annoying as hell because they just get a buff in hp. So to answer your question, no, i dont like it.

    Not really. There's too much that was taken away from the gunplay in New Vegas to ignore, and when upping the difficulty, we get bullet sponge enemies.

    In Fallout 4 I have enemies with guns still running at me like idiots, too bad they never get to melee me or what ever they try to do before I pump them full of bullets.

    Hear, hear. It was a polished copy of Fallout 3 and NV and to me that meant shit.
