Über das Spiel

Welcome back to the Citadel, Rangers! Join the over 70,000 Kickstarter backers and interact with the development team to help shape the ending of an already historic post-apocalyptic story. The Wasteland's hellish landscape has been waiting for you to make your mark… or die trying.

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them. Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.

The Wasteland series impressive and innovative lineage has been preserved at its very core, but modernized for the fans of today with Wasteland 2. Immerse yourself in turn-based tactical combat that will test the very limits of your strategy skills as you fight to survive a desolate world where brute strength alone isn’t enough to save you. Deck out your Ranger squad with the most devastating weaponry this side of the fallout zone and get ready for maximum destruction with the RPG-style character advancement and customization that made the first Wasteland so brutal. Save an ally from certain death or let them perish – the choice is yours, but so are the consequences.

Features:
  • One Size Does Not Fit All: Don't feel like finding the key for a door? Why not try a Rocket Launcher! Basically the same thing... right?
  • Enhanced Classic RPG Game Play: Classic RPG game play ideas updated with modern design philosophies.
  • Decision Making... with Consequences: With both short and long term reactivity to the players choices, every decision matters in the outcome of the story.
  • Huge & Customizable: Dozens of hours of game. Hundreds of characters. Thousands of variations on your Rangers' appearance. Over 150 weapons. Dozens of skills. Even the UI can be customized.

Sehr gutes Spiel, welches meiner Meinung nach zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit erhalten hat bzw erhält. Es ist damals voll an mir vorbei gegangen und ich habe es aus Zufall jetzt entdeckt. Wer Jagged Alliance und Ufo (x-Com) und auch Fallout kennt sollte sich dieses Spiel auf jeden Fall geben. Ich soiele es die letzten Tage sehr gerne.

I have mixed feelings about this one. The part of it that takes place in Arizona is really solid. Engaging combat, fun missions, good all-around structure to the narrative, etc. Then you go to California, and suddenly the missions and their solutions become about as convoluted and unintuitive as mid-90's Lucasarts point-and-click adventures.

In the end, I did spend about 40+ hours playing it before I lost interest, so that's worth something.

This game is literally perfect. I am a FO 1/2/Tactics fanboy and this hit the spot. Wastelands 3 is coming out in 2020, so snag this (even at full price it is worth every penny) and enjoy this masterpiece before the next one rolls around. These devs really gave us the game we have wanted for years. Trust me.

I have a difficult time playing a game through 100% start to finish. Had no problem putting in the time to complete Wasteland 2. Really quality, crowd-funded game. I didn't play the original until after this game was announced (unfortunately was not a fan), but found Wasteland 2 to be awesome in its own right.

If you're a fan of the old-school Fallout series, Baldur's Gate, or even Pillars of Eternity - then you will probably appreciate Wasteland 2.

Can't wait for Wasteland 3. Looking forward to it!

Highly recommended for an amazing apocalyptic rpg experience.

One of my favorite games as a kid was the original Wasteland on the C64. I was so excited for Wasteland 2 and jumped right in and played it non-stop when it was released. Then I hit the 2nd half bugs... I learned an important lesson then. It is best to give games some time after they are released. I am glad I came back to Wasteland 2, because it is now free of the game breaking bugs and is an amazing experience. I am now excited for Wasteland 3, but... I'll make sure to wait a few months before diving in.

In my ongoing and likely futile effort to write a Steam review for every game in my library (#263 out of 558)... it's time for Wasteland 2: Director's Cut.

Wasteland 2 is a game all but precision-engineered to disappoint. It's the spiritual successor to the beloved Fallout series, and the literal successor to the Wasteland series (less beloved, but those that do love it, love it a lot). It's the serious, complex CRPG response to the simplified, casual modern RPGs typified by Bethesda's output. And it's crowdfunded--a big, swollen middle-finger to those mean-old publishing companies that have dictated what games are and are not made for far too long. That's a whole heck of a lot riding on just one game--no matter what you want Wasteland 2 to mean, in the grand scheme of things, you're likely to leave disappointed by what you get.

Thankfully I don't care for any of that bullshit so I don't have to talk about it.

So what's the deal with Wasteland 2? It's a big, ambitious CRPG that mostly fails to fully realize everything it tries to do--but the effort is extremely compelling nonetheless. The story is interesting and man of the characters memorable, and the combat generally engaging (even if I did find the difficulty curve to be rather steep). There are also copious non-combat skill checks. What more could a CRPG fan possibly ask for? Of course, there are problems, too. Visually the game is a mess, with some of the ugliest character models and textures I've ever seen in 20-ish years of gaming. Animations are also very rough, as is the pacing. The front half of the game is very well balanced, but you'll reach a point shortly before the middle of the game where you're asked to wade through an inordinate amount of combat with very little noncombat interaction, and it's a huge slog. Narrative reactivity and quest resolution can also be a bit buggy at times, and the direction is often opaque (which suits the trial-and-error nature of exploration in its predecessor, I suppose).

Wasteland 2 is very much a budget game with the ambition of a AAA game. Sometimes it pulls that off, and when it does, it's fantastic. Sometimes, more often, it doesn't quite manage. But, even so, if you're fond of the genre and can look past all the extrinsic context of crowdfunding and Fallout and publisher shenanigans, you'll find a lot in Wasteland that will delight you, a fair bit that will annoy you, a few things that are pure irritation. Still well-worth your time, I think, if you, like me, cannot say no to a meaty CRPG.

Note: the Director's Cut edition of the game adds a great deal of polish, and makes the already good game considerably better. I don't quite think it's sufficient to raise the quality of WL2 from good to great (visually it's still incredibly ugly, if nothing else) but it does make the gameplay, overall, much more engaging and rewarding.

This was difficult to give a thumbs-down to. Squad / turn based RPGs are definitely my favorite type of game, and I've played just about every one of them out there. This one is particularly difficult. After scores of reloads, re-attempts, re-rolling teams, and reading newsgroup posts on what I'm doing wrong and what to do right, I decided to give it up. I happened to miss an optional, but extremely helpful NPC in one of my first games and spent 10+ hours getting my arse kicked, reloading saves, etc. I get it. It's supposed to be difficult and that is part of the lure/charm/promise of something different. I don't mind having to reload or retry different tactics. But at some point it stops being fun and starts becoming a chore. Uninstalling and not looking back.

Haven't enjoyed it much honestly. I haven't finished the game by any means but certain aspects make it frustrating.

The weapon mechanics and combat started off interesting, a couple of moments in some of the first areas I remember moving my sniper to high ground, placing my assault rifle specialists at mid range cover and have shotgunner and smgs at close choke points to set up before a fight and that was great. Problem is, this stops, like completely, most fights just begin randomly when you open a door or cover is so far out the way that fights just become a click and point thing with very little strategy and honestly not all that challenging.

My main beef, however, is this extremely unclear sense on what I am actually meant to be doing, some people I see are blatantly a-holes but I don't know if I should shoot them because they might be important to the story? I just got to dealing with the monks faction, and I don't even wanna pay the tribute, I just wanna shoot them and continue but the game doesn't make it in any way clear as to what kind of effects this will have without you even knowing.

My interest just trailed off, it started interesting the first area, then just got repetitive and honestly really boring

I liked Wasteland 2. Played the classic Wastetland in parallel to a certain extent as they were bundle together. The story seemed exactly the same, though I continued with the later updated Wastland2: Directer's Cut 3D isometric version. There may be differences to the originals.
Plays well, X-Com'ish from the 90's. Worth a play through, and as always it taste better on sale.

Bought in the Steam sale after been on the wishlist for a while and never quite sure whether to take the leap - definitely worth the money if you like a classic top-down RPG where there's a lot of focus on building your team and some pretty satisfying combat too. Enjoying the story so far, but 19 hours in and I think there's still quite a way to go.

Awaiting Wasteland 3 as it looks pretty good (sad face due to the delay). I decided to go back and finally beat Wasteland 2.

Not knowing anything about the game, and before only playing a little past the first hour or so which you will find fairly quickly is nothing when it comes to this game. I built my custom party of 4 characters which I really like. Being able to customize a squad of 4 out of the gate and being able to pick up custom characters later I thought was a great way to achieve story characters while giving the player a bit of control at the same time.

I was all over the place as far as skills were concerned which later came to bite me firmly in the booty cheeks. But in my ignorance I carried on blissfully unaware.

Strap in because this game is going to show you that most of your choices do indeed have consequences and that will happen very quickly in the game. From there you are going to go from choice to consequence fairly often, sometimes you will see the consequence right away, other times you will not see it until later.

Graphics:
Decent for an Isometric game, but I feel as it the textures and character models were a bit low quality for 2014.

Game play mechanics:
Mechanics are your standard CRPG mechanics with failure being frustrating and success being gratifying specially if you got a really low success rate and you nail that crucial crit success. Not really breaking any new ground here, but then again they don't need to as this is what the audience for this game wants. I thought the random loot was a nice touch as well, yes I save scum to avoid having to come back to get a chest after I level. This is because I am old, and cant remember where things are anymore.

Another game play feature that I thought was handy and saved my butt a few times was that you had to click directly on the square tile to move to that tile in combat. I know what you think well that is a dumb idea, I disagree, it is in place so that you do not accidentally click on a tile and blow your turn which I would have done I do not know how many times had this not been in place. Bravo Dev. Team for anticipating an old mans blunders and saving him from himself.

Story wise:
I really enjoyed it, even some of the side quests were very good and made you really feel like you were in this world where every scrap/weapon you salvaged was worth its weight in gold.

Some of the communities of people in this game, make you just want to annihilate all of them and when you are able to do just that it is so satisfying. You are faced many times with two different agendas and both sides go about there agendas in a very aggressive manner, and at the end of the day it is the people who suffer the most. Do you wipe them out and create instability in the region or do you bite your tongue pick the lesser of two evils and I assure you it is just that, and go about your day?

Cons:

There were a few UI glitches mainly with the perk points screen glitching out but you just needed to close the screen down click on a different character go to the same area and it would be resolved if you went back to the character that was having the issue.

Sometimes when you hotkey'ed and item it would not show up the first time you did it, even if you had space on your hotkey bars. Just doing it a second time would usually clear it up.

Finally the biggest pet peeve I had with this game was the quest journal. Holy crap it is bad. Some side quests have no journal entry, so guess what? You come back to play the game a few days later and your old like me and forgot about the side quest, you don't do that side quest.

Even main quest journal entries are sparse and sometimes written very confusingly. I am guessing this was done on purpose to highlight exploration, but I was going to explore anyways, all it did for me was make following the side quests confusing and irritating at times. Seeings how the main story takes a long time to get to, the side quests are really the only thing in between the time gaps of the main story.

All in all I would recommend this game for me it is the perfect price point for what you are getting. I had way more than $30 worth of fun, and was pleasantly surprised at the length of the game and also the replay ability which I will not spoil what makes replaying this game very tempting. You wont understand until you beat it, I give you that much.

This is a game that you really need to invest your time in if you want the best experience possible. I played this before the directors cut was released, so if you play this version of the game, you have to be aware of some of the differences such as no perks, quirks, and voiceover, graphics, and bugs. If you haven’t played this before, but played some of the old school fallout games, then most of the menu layouts and concepts from those games will be immediately recognizable to you in this game. There really is a lot to explore and uncover in this game, as you won’t see every outcome of a decision you make on your first play through. The gameplay is pretty straight-forward, kind of annoying at first since you will always be weak and low-skilled, but as you progress you become a death squadron and basically destroys anything in sight. I will say that the gameplay and the side quests really make the game shine, but the pacing of the main story is slow, with the second half of the game being much more enjoyable and different from the first half. Overall, it’s a fun experience and definitely something to own if you are into old school rpgs. If you can play the directors cut, but this game is still fine.

The closest thing to a Fallout 2.2. An immersive isometric apocalyptic RPG, well worth the time put in.

Games like this can be either make-or-break. It has its flaws, and overall the game is downright ugly (yes, it's the fugly apocalypse. Regardless, the graphics in this game will most assuredly unimpress) and at times clunky. The ui isn't the greatest, and I highly suggest turning up the battle speed.

However, these blemishes aside, Wasteland 2 is well written, rewarding, thought-provoking, and there will be moments where you get the feels. This is frankly rare in video games, and as such deserves to be highlighted. There's moral ambiguity, under the guise of the chivalry of being a Ranger. Like most similar games worth their salt(Fallout 2, DoS 2, Baldur's Gate 2, Pillars, etc), there are multiple ways to solve quests, and sometimes there are genuinely no good outcome. Yes, this game deserves to be listed and compared with those heavy titles.

Anyway, I could go on but succinctness or the aim thereof is the theme of the day. So in summation, if you like these types of gaes, and want to see the fruits of a true veteran dev, you can witness much of the evolution with this game. I can't wait until Wasteland 3 is released

This game is actually great, but unfortunately there is a known bug with a corrupt save game that leaves the new and load game spinning. There are some fixes that work for most people, unfortunately it doesn't for me.

Trust me, I've tried them all and even contacted support but haven't heard back from them. It's a shame really, because I can't even start a new game all because of one corrupt save game.

Once this gets fixed I'll update the review

An unabashedly old-school RPG that actually has role-playing in it. What a weird idea! I've grown tired of the Fallout series just regurgitating the same content in an experience that feels a mile wide but an inch deep. The writing of Wasteland 2 vastly outstrips anything from the last several Fallout games, giving a setting that feels vibrant and alive despite being a post-apocalyptic wasteland. I actually care about the people in it, and it doesn't feel like I need to make choices just to have an optimal ending (especially because a lot of the choices are very gray without an ideal solution). It's a bit rough around the edges, yes, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and can't recommend it enough.

This game is a mixed bag. Like a lot of games, its got a lot of heart and good ideas but the polish is lacking, the game crashes sometimes even though its the 'Directors Cut'. I wish I could play more of this game but having to redo 15 minutes of gameplay due to no autosave feature and crashes is just not something I have no gametime for.

A large, open world with creative and interesting lore, made alongside some of the crew who made the original Fallout. The sequel to the classic 1988 Wasteland, with plenty of references to events from the original to give returning players a nod without confusing new ones.

Create your squad, recruit new members to augment them with a diverse array of abilities. Make choices with actual consequences to the game world and play through a number of different ways to experience a number of different endings.

I tried liking this game, and I was a huge fan of its influences like the first two Fallouts, but the game is just boring and dreadful. It feels like it lacks a soul, it feels like someone thought about how much they loved the first Fallout games and made a shitty copy. The quests are boring and a lot of the moral quandries and normal choices that exist in the game are either extremely clear cut or they don't matter at all.

Kind of amazing that such games like Wasteland 2 still gets developed. It plays and looks like a CRPG from 15 years ago and it's just great. I mean, to me Fallout 1 is undoubtedly the godfather of all RPG games. Fallout 1 was a mature, amazing game that almost everyone liked. However the inspiration for the creation of Fallout was Wasteland. Now we have Wasteland 2, which greatly honors the CRGP genre unlike the modern iterations of Fallout. If you enjoyed these types of games back in the day, you will love the gameplay and the unforgiving challenge in Wasteland 2. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2173271562 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2173271417 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2173088703 Unlocked all achievements!

Frustrating experience in the end, as I felt this game was close to being very good. But there were just a few too many things that didn't fit quite right together:
- in my initial run I could not progress an early quest because I lacked a single skill with no way to work round it.
- allies going rogue in battle with no follow up consequence gets dull really fast.
- having to make narrative decisions on who lives or dies without any context is just meaningless.
- contacting base every time you need to level up is...pointless.

It's pretty polished, and I had none of the technical issues I've seen reported elsewhere, but ultimately I felt disengaged. Combat is a bit dull in general, and I couldn't find any hook that made me want to carry on.

If you are a fan of turn based strategy games where your characters get a bunch of different skills and abilities, and use actions points while in combat, this is a game for you. This is probably one of the best I have played in a long, long time, and I would highly recommend it.

The first Wasteland inspired Fallout, so that is what you are getting into here, setting-wise. It is the post-apocalypse, the world has ended, and now that things have started to be rebuilt, it is all coming up radiation soaked and screwy. This game runs the gambit from legitimately sad, scary, and uncomfortable, to crazy clever and laugh out loud antics. All of the characters in the game are great, including villains and antagonists. There are roving gangs of raiders, insane radiation cultists, machine-men out to transform humanity, and a faction of militant Catholics which field nuns with guns as foot soldiers. It is a great mix that, while sometimes stretches the belief, always works, and is always great.

The music is fantastic and fits the setting, with different tracks for different areas. You also don't get bored of where you are, this is not a grey or brown wasteland where nothing has grown for over two hundred years because it would require making more models and textures. It is Arizona, and California, so yes there are some desert areas, you start off in one, but the setting are so diverse and so fun, like I said before, you never get bored. From 'Old West' desert towns and mining villages, to rivers and lake settlements, to lush forests, to swamps, city-scapes, underground caves, tunnels, facilities and more. It has all been worked on to both make it believable, and fun to play in. The cliff filled maze-like area home to the insane radiation worshipers is one of my favorite locations.

They did an excellent job with the skills. Most of the different guns you can equip your characters with feel really good and well balanced. At first you may not really like energy weapons due to the way they function in the game, but later on they will grow to be your best friends. I say most guns, because I felt that pistols and shotguns kind of lagged behind. Rifles, sniper rifles, heavy weapons, and energy weapons reign supreme here, due to their range. Giving all of your characters pistols as backup weapons in case they don't have time to reload and enemies get in quick, or the same for shotguns is recommend. Not really for primary use. I found Rose and her pistol skills quickly lost any kind of effectiveness, especially with the lack of armor piercing, the same went for a shotgun main I used once. If they could rebalance these weapon types for the third game a bit to make them all just as useful that would be great.

As for your skills, I found most of them to be useful. You can give a character one of the Charisma based skills, but don't go putting points into all of them. This is not an early Fallout game, you cannot talk your way out of everything or avoid combat, you will need to fight, and gimping one of your characters to make them a speech master isn't worth it in the end, so I found at least. The Charisma skills can be useful, but I hope that for the third game it is improved upon. I also kind of hope that they combine safe-cracking and lock-picking. I know there is a distinction, but I found it painful using up skill points on two different skills which are ostensibly the same. As for toaster repair, it was fun and unique. Everything else works really well, and I think they have built a great system for this game.

Play this game. It still looks and sounds great six years later, and still 100% plays just as well as it did back when I first tried my hand at it. I would have a lot more hours on this game, but they were kind and gave me the Directors Cut for free, (I don't know why but maybe because I supported the game early on) so my hours are split almost down the middle. Get this game if you are looking at it and reading reviews, don't wait for a sale, it is so good and worth it. Highly, highly recommended.

You can’t go wrong with a game that combines turn-based combat with a custom squad. World building is done very well, and post-apocalyptic themes are explored beyond just mutants and radiation. This is one of those games where you have a detailed plan for a new squad long before the end credits roll for your current one. Comes highly recommended if you have previously enjoyed even one of the following: Infinity-engine games (BG-saga, IWD, PT), Divinity OS, XCOM: EU or the old Fallout games.

Played both the original and the director's cut, so the actual playtime is closer to 160 hours.

Wasteland 2 hearkens back to the great Interplay CRPGs of the late 1990s such as Fallout and Baldur's Gate while serving its purpose as a bona fide sequel to the original Wasteland released decades ago. Like the CRPGs of yesteryear, Wasteland 2 benefits from having many locations to explore, lots of weapons to experiment with and offering the player decisions that have a major impact on the storyline. The game also has a whole bunch of silly, yet entertaining pop culture references and a very fitting soundtrack thanks to the talents of Fallout composer Mark Morgan. The game does have flaws such as its lack of character portraits, unforgiving combat, questionable skill trees, as well a few bugs, but they don't detract from what is a solid and enjoyable post-apocalyptic romp through the Southwestern United States. Recommended.

TLDR: Game is a C+

I've played Wasteland 2 since its initial release. I'm a fan of the OG Fallout games, and when I came across Wasteland 2 I was pretty excited. On the surface it ticks a lot of boxes; you create your own squad, assign skills and stats, roam around a hellscape and fights baddies, and have a pretty strong hand in shaping the narrative. Those parts of the game are a lot fun, and for the most part they are executed well. Where the game struggles, for me, is in the heavy reliance on RNG. If you played Fallout 3 and New Vegas you'll understand what I mean. FO3 had percentage chances for speech checks and the like, which meant you were at the mercy of a dice roll and could save scum your way to success. NV made hard requirements for checks, which gave you certainty that you would succeed if you met the requirement. Wasteland 2 opts for the former approach, and 90% of the content in the game bows down to the almighty dice roll. When RNG is on your side, it's a great time and you feel like you're making headway. When RNG is against you, it feels like you're fighting the game, and it was so bad for me as a new player that I stopped playing for 5 years. The Director's Cut fixed a lot of QOL issues I had with the original release, but RNG is still king. If you can put up with chance, or don't mind getting fucked now and again, I would give Wasteland 2 a shot. If the thought of what I said above makes you pause, then skip it

if the hype were true, this would have been my jam. it seems a faithful successor to wasteland, but the comparisons to fallout 1 or even fallout 2 are way exaggerated. it's closest to fallout tactics, but i honestly like tactics a little better - probably from low expectations. tactics quality 'humor' and 'story'.

the best thing i can say about it is that if you happen to like it, there's a lot of what it is for you to enjoy.

if you're still interested, get it on deep sale.

It is an old-school RPG game like the first game of the series. However, bugs in the game are old-school level (you can’t see some skill checks from item and you need to use bar, annoying loading sound, visual bugs, people who wouldn’t surrender when they have to, etc.). Plus, the game feels half-finished in many aspects and it is half-finished at some parts like impossible safes, losing the water mechanic at the second part without an explanation. Unfortunately, having a Director’s Cut without fixing these problems makes everything even worse. At least, they did not sell any DLCs. Even though game isn’t really old, there is no sneak option and you are forced to fight in most of the situations. Other than that, NPCs don’t comment on many important things in the game like arrested guy situation. Difficulty is another problem in this game. I played it at hardest difficulty but it was poorly designed in many ways. First of all, combat difficulty is horrible. Most of the weak enemies can one-shot you while your men are so weak and I do not why but you can’t hit someone from the same cover’s different side. Secondly, skill check spike is really bad. At one of the skill check requirements, requirement goes from level 2 to level 7. The other aspect of the skill check is randomization with critical errors. You will find yourself saving and loading occasionally, just to meet skill checks (after spending many skill points and giving up from combat skill points, definitely it isn’t rewarding). Numbers of hit ratio, success rate, armor rating and damage are all wrong by the way. Although, I had more damage and armor from enemies, they easily doubled my damage in most of the situations and I failed 5 times in a row at 90% (and many fun situations like this) at skill checks. At least, leveling via radio system is a good idea. However, there are many basic design mistakes like ambiguity of toaster items usage, lack of reaching to incapacitated team member’s inventory, easiness of miss clicking to loot at a dead body, rare weapon drop (you fight with people with armor, ammo and weapon but most of them don’t have those items), wrong cloth descriptions, inconsistent shooting before combat (your men can’t shoot at the same time), team members who don’t care about the mines they have seen, followers that you can’t dismiss or tell them to wait, movement at places like bridges, selling only high level health items which only people with high level medic skill can use at the end and fake walls (like Hollywood sewers).
A lot of missions are inconsistent and don’t make sense and a lot of main choices are forced a bit much. [spoiler]I still don’t understand why the hell my helicopter crashed when it was out of fuel. With the style of writing, it feels too edgy. And there isn’t a lot of choices while some skills are useless most of the time. For example at the Canyon, when you meet the couple who are being robbed by raiders, you can’t say that they are with you or when you find a sick woman your doctor doesn’t even try to examine her, she/he just says she is too far gone. Other than that, if you kill people at Canyon without leaving survivors monks can learn about it magically. Plus, there are many annoying things like the prison event which game forces you to leave the area and punish you for it. Unfortunately, game depends so much on surprises in combat which becomes annoying quickly. By the way making every character model shredded like there isn’t any food problem or anything in a post-apocalyptic world is a great idea. It really helps with immersion. And cannibals are people who have pigs just in front of their doors, it makes sense, right? Of course, you can’t warn Citadel after the antagonist tells you all of his plans and saying he will attack there tomorrow.[/spoiler]
I do not know why they added many different mechanics while changing or deleting the existing mechanics instead of fixing the game. There are quirks, cutscenes, voice overs, graphical improvement and precision strike ability (which is useless most of the game at higher difficulties; because your rangers are blind). The UI at Director’s Cut is really bad. You can’t see the water radiation suit you have and charisma haven’t explained properly. Other than that, energy weapons are useless in this version.
So, try it if you do not have any decent RPG to play, this game is pretty mediocre.

After playing for many hours I can no longer load any saves. Starting a new game works but there is no way to load a new save or even reload a save after exiting the game. Deleting saves doesn't work. Synchronising with Steam Cloud doesn't work. Deleting the TOC file from the save folder doesn't work either. Verifying files doesn't work.

There have been several users reporting something similar and no word on how to fix that or what to do to get around that problem.

Similar problems have been reported for years so to say that such an occurrence is disappointing is an understatement.

If you were fan of the original Fallout 1 and 2 from back in the day, you will love this! The characters and story are deep and complex. They did a great job of creating a serious, but not-too-serious vibe. Lots of fun and humor while keeping it real. There are dual-missions that require you to choose between two groups that need help. There's no way to save them both. You must live with your choice, and the losers really let you have it! 10/10 Highly recommend!

Wasteland 2 is a post-apocalyptic role-playing video game released in 2014 and the sequel to the 1988 video game Wasteland. It was developed and published by inXile Entertainment (Classic Fallout Team, Brian Fargo, Chris Avellone and more ) after a successful crowd-funding drive on Kickstarter.

I don't understand why this game gets so many negative reviews. This game gets a 8.5/10 in my opinion. it has flaws, but they are completely outshone by how perfect this game is in almost every way.

Wasteland 2 One of the best CRPG out there! Amazing character creation and combat system. If you like CRPG's and Post Apocalyptic Games don't miss this classic game!

When Fallout was released in 1997, I was completely charmed by it. It was one of the best turn-based RPGs I've played and its unique post-apocalyptic setting made it an absolutely memorable instant classic. Little did I know that Fallout drew inspiration from the 1988 game, Wasteland.
Wasteland 2 shows more similarity with Fallout than with its prequel (some of the developers participated in both games!), mainly because of the isometric view and the character development system, that's why many people call it the true 'Fallout 3' instead of Bethesda's Oblivion mod. Although it aims to achieve much and is full of references, it can't catch up with the (high) standards of its predecessor(s) and bears more resemblance to the world of Mad Max (without cars) than to the Fallout universe. Sadly the plot is only OK with a slight twist near the end.

The year is 2102, 15 years after the events of the first game. The Earth (or at least the majority of it) was devastated by nuclear war. The Desert Rangers, self-appointed lawmen (descendants of an army engineer battalion) of Arizona try to maintain order in the post-apocalyptic southwestern region of the former United States by helping those who ask for help. The leader, General Vargas assigns our squad, Echo-One, the newest recruits with an important task: to investigate the circumstances of the death of Ace, his former companion, who was seeking the source of a mysterious radio broadcast.

Although the character creation (and development) resembles to the one used in Fallout, it falls short in many ways. Our gender plays no role here, it's only aesthetics. Same goes with our large selection of choices related to appearance and clothing, having zero importance.
Our attributes need careful examination as they are not always clear. Speed for example has little to do with the amount of our action points, coordination does (the little '+' marks below the description tell us which attribute affects our certain capabilities).
Traits have upsides and downsides (just like in Fallout) and we receive perks at every 3rd level. These aren't as powerful and decisive as they were there and don't need attribute requisites, only skills. So cases of nonsense such as a character with low intelligence (which only affects our received skill points per level) having access to all dialogue options do exist (in Fallout these were affected by our intelligence, charisma and our speechcraft). We also receive +1 attribute point per every 10th level (max. level is 50). There's nothing that can't be fixed with investing plenty of skill points, so high intelligence from the start is a must.
We can create 4 specialized (leader/negotiator, lockpicker, hacker/demolitionist, doctor) characters, but additional ones can be hired as well (we get one straight away) up to 3, having a total of 7. Although these hired characters will occasionally comment on certain events, they have no unique quests and lack real personality that would make the player likely to grow attached to them.

Speaking of quests, they are rather diverse and enjoyable. Unfortunately this doesn't exactly apply to the main questline (which should be the incentive to play the game through) which largely consists of setting up radio repeater units all around Arizona (and California). The game does a good job about choices sometimes, the problem is, it uses this feature very rarely. For example not too far in the game we receive distress calls from 2 relatively large settlements both threatened by deadly peril, but we can only save 1 of them and we get to hear the screams of the people we ignored on the radio. For those who aim to hunt down all the achievements, I suggest saving the AG Center (the one under attack by mutated plants and monsters) since there's a specific one related to it, that can't be carried out otherwise.
It should be noted that if we plan on completing all side quests, there's a point of no return in the game, so when we deal with the murderers in the prison, we should solve any remaining ones, since we can't return after leaving to California.

The game map is huge (the individual maps of settlements are not) and the game takes 60 hours to complete, even if we only stick to the main questline. I personally managed to do every side quest and it took me well over 200 hours (plus I overwrote a save file so I had to replay a considerable portion of the game) using the quest log helps a lot keeping track of them. Travelling is limited by radiation clouds which we can overcome by getting better anti-radiation suits (this was also done better in Fallout, where we got diseased and needed medication). The limited water supply is a neat idea, but since the map is full of oases, it doesn't affect the gameplay at all. The absence of time (it only passes when we do something meaningful) is also disturbing but my biggest complaint regarding gameplay is how stealth was left out entirely from the game, even if there are parts where we should use it...
Difficulty is quite low even on higher settings, but it only applies to the first half of the game: once we set foot in California, all hostile creatures become deadly threats (a few wild dogs can easily wipe us out after we've dealt with hordes of dangerous criminals armed with machine guns) and we are forced to set it back to 'seasoned' (or even lower). They cause status effects (bleeding, poison, while they'll shake off the effects of our aimed shots within a single round) with each attack and do insane damage. I don't know why they decided to upscale the difficulty by such extreme measures, but it was rather strange.

I remember how the game received criticism for its graphics, but I found these unfounded. The locations look nice and colourful, especially the green environments of California. I can't say the same about the dated character models or some of the reused NPC portraits. The Unity engine made me wonder why developers tend to choose it: there were areas where scrolling was choppy and no matter how I rotated the camera, it failed to properly display the object I was trying to interact with. I was also expecting more cutscenes (there's only a live-action intro and a very short endgame video).

The quality of the audio is absolutely top: most games nowadays pay attention to graphics detail and '4K' only, while forgetting about people who don't settle for headphones but have 5.1/7.1 sound systems. Thankfully Wasteland 2 does a great job in this regard, everything is done masterfully: the howling of the wind in a canyon, the gunshots, the scary radio broadcasts, the spoken dialogue and the endgame music all sound amazing. A word of advice though: next time don't entrust a man to imitate the sound of a goat, a real one isn't hard to come by ;)

It never caused me much difficulty to decide whether I should recommend a game or not, until now. It is obvious Wasteland 2 was made with a lot of dedication and it has it moments, but these moments are not plentiful enough to make it memorable, it gets interesting only towards the end and it can't live up to Fallout. Sure, I could mention that it still manages to deliver more atmosphere than any of the sequels that came after Fallout 2, but sadly that's not much of an accomplishment.

PROS
+ truly excellent audio
+ unique post-apocalyptic world
+ neat environments
+ lengthy gameplay...

CONS
- ...which is not necessarily a good thing, since it can't reach the standards of Fallout
- too few true choices & consequences
- stealth is not implemented even though the game is asking for it
- lifeless player characters, reused/identical characters and objects

I really wanted to love this game especially as a huge fan of the original Wasteland and Fallout / Fallout 2, and I did love it - when I wasn't running into save-breaking bugs.

I'm barely into the second act of the Director's Cut on my current playthrough and I just encountered my third save-breaking bug involving quest progression. Sorry, but even during lockdown, I don't have the patience to replay the game for hours just to get the game world back to where it should be, especially when it's because the devs can't be assed to figure out basic quest progression issues.

Honestly even after the second bug I encountered, the experience already became a huge bummer because of how much it affected the way I approached the game; I became afraid of intertwining different quests / locations, etc. for fear of running into these bugs. And then it happened for the third time anyway.

I'll also mention a gameplay aspect that really annoyed me: Party companions are sometimes made unavailable or even just taken away, for story reasons. Given all the considerations that go into party composition and the time/effort invested into developing companions, I feel like that's a really bad design element.

To be fair, if you're looking for that Wasteland / Fallout / Fallout 2 feel in a relatively modern package AND you can deal with these types of bugs, you'll probably love this game. But, for me it's three strikes and you're out.

Remember back before 3D, when there was an entire generation of isometric RPGs with D20 rules and deep story? You can still buy them, but within five minutes you throw them at the wall because they are so ugly and painful to play.
This is the same style of game, except not ugly and not painful.
(Also not sword-and-sorcery fantasy, which I'm utterly sick of.)

It's tough to say whether I prefer Wasteland 2 & 3 or Shadowrun Returns / Dragonfall / Hong Kong.
They're all great. Shadowrun feels a bit more indie.

Note that the Wasteland 1 reboot is NOT in this style.
It's the original DOS game, with better graphics.
If you like Wasteland 2, definitely get Wasteland 3 and Shadowrun, but not necessarily Wasteland 1.

A real throwback game.

A lot of fun elements and some inconveniences.

First open world, where you choices seem to matter. They change the game, and you can even fuck things up in your game so bad it can stunt you from finishing it.

Good Parts:
-Lots to do.
-Large story and lots of characters
-Choices matter
-Multiple endings = more replayability
-More stuff

The bad parts
-Not very optimized. Really chugged on my computer
-Lots of dialogue. Even more than I wanted to read
-Difficult at start. I actually turned it to easy for the play through
-Tutorial really does not prepare you

Anyway, if you liked games from the late 90s like Fallout it could float your boat.

If you ever had a doubt about buying this game, dont think, buy it. Baldurs gate wouldnt be ashamed of this game. I am playing Directors Cut and didnt have a single bug or problem during whole gameplay so far. It looks beautiful, it plays great, voices are really good, lore is very good, and I'm enjoying myself like 20 years ago when Fallout 1 came out. Yeah, I'm 47 and wasting 3-4 hours per day on this :)

A good but not great cRPG that, try as it may, never quite matches the old-school Fallout titles that Wasteland helped to create in the first place. While the combat and role-playing hold up to the standards (largely thanks to the DIrector's Cut), its quest design, writing, and world just isn't as gripping as Black Isle's efforts were. Glitches and balance issues are also a problem. Despite its faults, Wasteland 2 is a good choice for anyone interested in an old-school style cRPG, and I would recommend picking it up on sale.
