Vault Dweller: I want to speak with whoever's in charge here.
Zark: That's Morpheus. Our Leader. He's up in the tower, I think.
Vault Dweller: C'mon, man. That tells me nothing. Share some of the dirt!
Zark: The guy dresses in black, he does his preacher act, then he goes upstairs and counts his scripts. Man, I wish I had it that easy! But I better stop talking about him behind his back, or the nightkin might here.

still a hit after all these years
16 August 2004 | by srodriguez4852See all my reviews

this is one those games that you can finish 10 times and still play again and again and always find something new. you can be a good guy you can be a bad guy . the story even changes according to your character's gender or attractiveness. it is set in a "retrofuture" post apocalyptic world with lots of references to 50's cold war mentality. one of the bes things is the haunting sound track which you will remember even in your sleep. this game is a perfect example of a game that does not have to be a 3d effects extravaganza to be a classic. too bad a sequel other than fallout 2 which is also excellent has not been made. if you enjoy intelligent rpg's this is one for you.
