Wasteland 2, the spiritual successor to Fallout 1 and 2, which themselves were spiritual successors to Wasteland 1, finally came out this week. Bottom line? It’s great. A lot of really solid elements come together into a really nice post-apocalyptic package here.
You can get a feel for the game by watching my video below. There are very few spoilers, I only go through squad creation and about half of the first quest here, to show off some of the mechanics and combat.
All in all, if you love turn-based tactics games, Wasteland 2 is for you. If you loved Fallout 1 and 2, Wasteland 2 is for you. It’s got everything great about those old isometric RPGs, with some modern-day improvements. I’m expecting to sink a lot of hours into this one.
