Om dette spil

For the first time in over 20 years, we are heralding the return of a much loved piece of gaming history with the classic RPG, Wasteland!

Mutants. Again. Even more than there were last time: they seem to materialize out of the very grains of the radioactive desert sand. Venomous yellow eyes. The black gunmetal glint of Uzis as they close in for the kill. There's nowhere to run, and nothing to rely on but your MAC 17 machine gun. What a way to save the human race.

The year is 2087, eighty-nine years after an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union turned vast swaths of the Earth into a hellish wasteland where survival is a daily struggle against thirst, hunger, radiation sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants - always mutants. You are a Desert Ranger, one of a band of stalwart lawmen born from the remnants of a U.S. Army detachment who survived the nuclear holocaust by holing up in a maximum security prison. You may wear ragtag uniforms and carry make-shift weapons, but the Desert Rangers are the only law left in what was once the American southwest.

Now something more secretive and sinister than the usual roving bands of mutants and raiders is menacing humanity, and it's your job to investigate. Recruit the help you need, follow any leads you find, but beware. The wasteland is lawless desert and a lonely place, and the choices you make will shape the world around you. Better choose wisely. Your life depends on it.

Review: So here I am playing a RPG Text-Adventure game from 1988 (I guess I should mention that I have not yet played too many CRPGs) - and well, i knew games from back then were rather complicated compared to the newer games and it happens that you get stuck and dont really know what to do to go on. But surprisingly it only took me a while (okay to be honest i watched a gameplay video or two :p ) to get into the game mechanics and I started to really enjoy the game. The game plays pretty well and compared to the original DOS version the steam version has nicer Aesthethics like redone artworks (sadly not animated like in the DOS version tho) and Built-In game documentary (that even gets read to you). From the Game mechanics side, I did not experience any Bugs, only some difficulties (my party missed alot in the beginning and there are places where the direction that you use your Skills in matters where - in my opinion - it shouldnt. Also when the mayority of your party is unconcious you end up in a never ending cycle of a fight until you eventually die). The game Dynamics went pretty smoothly aswell but you kind of have to know what skills you need have in the beginning whn creating your own characters.

So here are my personal Pros and Cons about the game:

Pros: + What the game lacks in graphics it makes up in Storytelling and Gameplay
+ Alot of fun and addicting gameplay
+ For the read-lazy people: The Game-Documentary has voiceovers (but then again: Is a game like this for read-lazy people at all? Either way I like how they did the Voiceovers :3)
+ Its the Grandfather of all Post-Apocalyptic RPGs... i mean that should be reason enough to play it!
+ Good Humor

Neutral: - Needs some getting used to but honestly you cant really blame the game for it
- You get pretty much thrown into cold water at the beginning and have a hard time figuring out where to go but hey cant go wrong with the nearest visible town, right? (Cold start is kind of like in Skyrim to give you some example to compare to... Good for emergent gameplay and I like that but I would just like to atleast get to know a bit of background knowledge PRO-TIP: The documentary gives you some hints about what is going on)

Cons: - Small tileset because they wanted to save up on disk-space back when the game was created... i was told it fitted onto 2 Floppys (why do bunnies look the same as opossums tho ;w; <- and yes these are enemies, and no they dont want to be cuddled, trust me i tried and died)
- Like I mentioned in my Review above there are parts where you can get stuck if you dont know some things (simple things mostly but you really need to know them)

Tips and Hints:

>Try to get a high IQ-stat when creating your character and skill them wisely (the highest of any stat is 18)
for example the Perception skill lets you "see" things that you cant see directly...
>Your CON (Constitution/Hit-Points) regenerates over time. You should search for safe places to "rest". Time passes
when you do any Action: this includes Moving, "View" whatever that does, holding down ESC.
>Dont get frustrated when you get stuck... it happens occasionally. Try to search the web and/or try things out.

I played the hell out of this back on c64, love this game. Having the paragraphs built in is awesome, and having music is awesome. Other than that it's basically true to the original, which is fine.

I played the original game in the 1980s but never had the time to finish it. When it came out on Steam, I was excited to try it again; this time I managed to play it right to the end. A timeless classic, very much for 1980s classic RPG fans. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the evolution of RPGs.

A seminal game for me back in the day. I was a whippersnapper, had all my hair and a disk drive for my C64. To be honest I was pretty crap at the game, I never did finish it, but it did not matter; I loved it. I imagined every trigger pull, every smoking shell case falling to the dirty floor (though imagining a fight with armoured fluffy bunnies took some doing some times).

The game has aged but it is still fit for purpose. And no longer must I endure the dread of one of the C64 disks crapping out on me.

Highly recommended.
