Review of Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel

Another wonderful game set in the Fallout universe (though it's generally not considered "canon"). It plays very similarly to Fallout and Fallout 2, though it does play with the formula somewhat. Instead of the more open-world, sandbox, do whatever the hell you want to do formula of the first two games, this game adopts a more mission-based formula, along with returning to your Brotherhood of Steel Base, which functions as a hub of sorts for each new set of missions. There's still a whole huge swath of land to criss-cross and explore along the way to and from your missions, but I feel like there's a bit more of a sense of purpose here. Though I will say that the game kinda falls off-kilter in the last third, as you go from facing a variety of enemies to facing robots. Only robots. Hordes of robots. And if you aren't prepared to fight robots (ie: Ditch the conventional weapons and adopt laser or preferably plasma based weapons) you are in for a WORLD OF HURT. Though, there is some great voice acting to be had from R. Lee Ermey and Kurtwood Smith.
