*THE* best roleplaying game so far (2001)
18 July 2001 | by (Mölndal, Sweden) – See all my reviews

With maybe the exception for the sequel. The awesome environments, the freedom to do stuff your way (being evil works, and its fun!), the natural language (f*** and c*** are used, and it sounds good too (in other words not put in there just to be there))

Also it has a wonderful sense of humor.. I can't wait for Fallout 3 (tactics wasn't that great) and Arcanum, I'm hoping they can still keep the same wonderful feeling.
