Fallout 2 Retrospective Review

The folks at RPGamer have gone back to Black Isle's classic Fallout sequel and wrote a review complete with score for it. I'm going to quote from their conclusions to give some context on why they award it a 4 out of 5:

Some games manage to age without problems, being just as playable now as when they were originally released. Fallout 2 is not one of those games, but after I got through the clunky aspects of its presentation, it became hard to stop playing. Even though I frequently had to research something I wanted to do but couldn't discern from the game itself, the gripping world presented here snared me and wouldn't let go until I was done. That's an impressive accomplishment for a title from any era.
