REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Fallout: Tactics is a squad-based, third person tactical combat game with RPG character development and a mission-based story line. Fallout: Tactics will support Continuous Turn-Based play through its Continuous Turn-Based Action System. Fallout: Tactics will feature a robust multiplayer engine.

The squad consists of a maximum of six characters, including the main character. Fallout is a successful established RPG license, and Fallout: Tactics will have the best pre-rendered graphics available in a game engine that uses turn-based tactics, with emphasis on a lesser number of units.
