Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Review

NetJak has tossed up a review of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, giving the action RPG an overall score of 6.6/10. An excerpt:
Overall, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel suffers from basic timing issues. After rolling through other games like D&D Heroes, the whole genre feels stale. With the current glut of this type of game in the likes of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, and Champions of Norrath, there is nothing that sets apart Brotherhood of Steel to give it an advantage over the competition. The fact that the game is only about six hours long doesn't help, either. Fallout: BoS is but a sheep in a large flock. It looks, smells, and acts just like the rest.

Perhaps BoS would have fared better had it not been released when many other similar games were also being released. It does, apart from the lack of options and jumping puzzles, have solid gameplay, decent graphics, and excellent sound, but the lack of originality and poor story keeps it from being really worth anything more than a casual rental.
