    Gamespot have had the honor of being the second* (which is much better then first) to review Fo:Bos. Here's a couple of the fun bits:<blockquote>Brotherhood of Steel is clearly inspired by and closely resembles Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance--Interplay's outstanding 2001 action RPG--but it's not as impressive. Fallout fans will find that this game is fairly faithful to the spirit of the series, except for the relentless use of profanity in its dialogue</blockquote>Good to know this game is faithful for us fans.<blockquote>Players assume the role of initiates in the Brotherhood of Steel, a faction of futuristic "knights" attempting to bring some order to a postnuclear world-gone-wild.</blockquote>Right... Faithful to the series.<blockquote>In addition to attacking, you can jump (there's a good bit of bottomless-pit-leaping in this game)</blockquote>Jumping puzzles! What genius design!<blockquote>The action-oriented gameplay is occasionally interrupted by dialogue sequences, which seem overly drawn-out--you'll probably find yourself skipping over the speech and skimming the text so that you can proceed to the next fight posthaste.</blockquote> Literacy is apparently not a luxury team chuck were thinking about.

    Head on over there to read the rest of the crap.

    It's getting harder, and harder to even comprehend the dumbness of the people who favoured this over what would have been a vastly superior Fallout title, it's as if the more I try to think about it, the more I want to headbutt flaming coals whislt doused in petrol (Gasoline for you yanks)

    Well, it's not that unusual... most games get above-average rating on most gaming websites. The really good ones get something like excellent but most of them get "good". I use mobygames.com for reviews.

    They gave it a 7.3 :evil:

    Did these goobers even play it and just pulled a rating out of their rear, or do they not know what Fallout really is.

    These kind of shoot and loot games are a dime a dozen, why they chose to make a Fallout version is beyond me.

    Now a game in this style where you have to hunt down and zap Caen... now that would be fun :)

    When's the last time you saw Gamespot give a sub-7 in any game? When thye did, they were truly despicable games with real flaws. BOS might be crap, it might be the death of Interplay, but its gameplay manages to be somewhat mediocre. And it got about 10% of Fallout right, so that gives it a boost, as the review makes clear that the change in setting is one of its few 'strengths'.

    I liked the part about it being really short, but at least the gameplay is repetative. That cracked me up.

    They also pulled the user score thing from it, which was 1.2 when it was pulled.

    Classic IP.

    Get bad press on your boards, lock 'em down.

    See a negative review on a gaming site, pressure that site to remove it. (this being supposition on my part).

    Any site that caters to interplay at this point is stupid beyond belief. They're only damaging their credibility at the expense of not pissing off a company that probably won't be around this time next year.

    I don't know if the hordes of people visiting those sites actually care.

    Depends on how many times they get stung. Some are slower than others.

    WTF is this?

    So know Interplay's pimping its old characters too?

    Interplay logic, if your going to rape somthing, rape it till it bleeds.

    I'm thinking most people know this already, but that most likely is referring to "the vault dweller".

    ????? Can't get link to other picture to work. There was one that actually showed him (did everybody play as male, all the time?) in the character selection screen. You could also see part of the blue jumpsuit, anybody else seen it?

    Has anyone considered the slight possibility that this might be an OK game?

    You are so lucky Rosh ain't here right now. Your ass will be owned when he gets back. I'll just stand back and watch while he chews you up. Just like the last one.

    EDIT: Have you really not looked at all the info you can on this game? There's a lot more than you apparently see.
