Playing Wasteland 2 on PS4. I backed it on Kickstarter but never played it until earlier this week (and I own it for PC, Xbone, and PS4 so it’s about time I tried it). It’s great.
They’ve successfully completed the loop. Fallout was the spiritual successor to Wasteland, and now Wasteland 2 is the spiritual successor to Fallout 2. That’s not a dig at the Bethesda Fallouts, I think those are great, too (I just earned my first ever Platinum Trophy on Fallout 4), but they’re very different from the Interplay/Black Isle games and this game really takes you back to the originals. The style is exactly what you’d want out of an isometric Fallout game: top down with added camera controls, but retaining the same art style and George Miller sensibility that you expect. They even used the original Fallout/2 composer, and the ambient music so far has been creepy, spectacular, and familiar.
So far the writing isn’t changing my life but I’m still early on. It’s not perfect but I still highly recommend this to anyone who’s an old Fallout fan.
