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.

Gave me a few laughs. Within 14 minutes I've killed 4 people who look like Mr. T and sold all my weapons to hire a 3 legged hooker just to meet my end in a river.

So here I am - heading back home on a bus from school, early 1989. The only real thing on my mind? Firing up the Commodore 64 and rejoining the bunch of Desert Rangers that have just escaped from their first encounter with the Scorpitron. Clips of various calibres were burnt through, LAW rockets fired, two mortally injured - but the team survived. Just.

How had this game got to captivate me so much? To this day, Wasteland ranks as my No.1 game of all time. Not a maybe, not a floating possibility amongst five other great games - but the clear front runner and sole contender. One that I doubt will ever be usurped in the immediate and all-consuming effect that wandering into the radioactive barrens of the American mid-West had on me.

Wasteland is a top-down RPG that follows the 'good guys' of Desert Rangers - attempting to put right the wrongs and work out what strange events are happening in post-nuclear desert around Las Vegas. Fully customisable characters are still fun today, but in late 1988, this was unheard of. Brawlers, pistoleros, ranged specialists to hi-tech geeks were all here - including murderous cyborgs, dodgy gamblers, bar owners and lethal, radioactive vermin. Wasteland introduced the options of restraint, or over-kill - depending on your mood and temperament. Do you carefully take a single shot at your target? Or burst fire of a trio of bullets? Or to hell with accuracy and lead count and simply rip through a magazine? Your ammo, your choice.

A newcomer to Wasteland in 2014 will be woefully unimpressed. What's all the fuss about? It looks archaic has virtually no sound and the main storyline can be completed in a very short time span. But a quarter of a century ago, this game shattered the adventure genre apart and set a whole new level of benchmark. The highly influenced offspring of the Fallout games show plenty of direct lineage back to the original game. But none enthrall in quite the same way that Wasteland did.

Even Steam refers to Wasteland 1 as 'The Original Classic'. For those lucky enough to have been around on its first release - that phrase sums it up perfectly.

Classic CRPG, but I'm gonna warn anyone going in: we're talking a game from an era where you lost people permanently if they died, you need to know what to type into the text parser to get plot information at times, and there WILL be events that leave you going "Wait, but I thought I just did that right, why did I have to shoot a boy and his dog" (NO NOT THAT BOY AND HIS DOG IN A WASTELAND) because you didn't read a situation the same way as a developer dreamed it 30 years ago.

That said? If you know what you're getting yourself into, Wasteland still holds the hell up and is full of its own crazy charm. I'D recommend turning off the new graphics, just because the vectorization filter it puts on everything drives me apeshit, but if you dig it, don't let me stop you. You've gotta remember: this is the game that the Fallouts were paying homage to when they were new. That should tell you all kinds of things about the world in question.

Make sure someone learns Toaster Repair.

The classic that started it all. This game brought rpg's from the dungeons to bombed-out cities and deserts. This was one of the first games to have memory and be able to save your progress, so when you made a change in the game world by killing someone or doing a mission it stayed that way! If you've never played this game I'll tell you about it. You're going to need imagination, like a lot of it. Because of limitations of Commador 64 this game relies on descriptive writing to give you a picture of whats happening in and out of combat. You'll need to when fighting with your party to find the right rhythm of attaking, dodging, and relaoding. Just like the first fallouts and most old rpg's, don't get to mad if a rat takes you down early on.




Over all if you want to play this make sure you know what you're getting, this is 26 years old. Its basicly a table top rpg program. You'll need to imagine the acton if thats what you desire.


p.s. Don't run right to Vegas

NOTE: The nolstagia factor doesn't apply to me since I wasn't around during the 80's, nor did I own any kind of PC until the mid 2000's.
tl;dr it's ♥♥♥♥ing awesome, what are you waiting for!?

If you're like me and haven't been around for these types of RPGs (I was born 1998), then there's going to be a difficult learning curve ahead, but it's a game well worth learning.

This game caters to my every need when it comes to that post-apocalyptic itch. Wasteland surprisingly has a good atmosphere and sometimes I can actually imagine the rangers fighting off hoardes of robots or leather jerks; I can really immerse myself in this game despite how "dated" it may be. You have a wide variety of skills and attributes to use at your disposal for any situation you may find yourself in, and this being an Interplay game, there are some weird spots you'll find yourself in. The variety / diversity helps make the world and your characters feel more immersive and more in-control. An example is at the bar in Quartz. You can hop onto a stage and get into a battle sequence, only to be forced to preform for the audience afterwards. So you have your charisma attribute and some skills like knife throw to entertain the audience before they let you back down, but if your skills are too low or if you're just unlucky, you're going to find yourself being pelted with tomatos and beer bottles.

I love the quirkiness of the game, it reminds me of the Fallout universe which is inspired by this game and also made by Interplay. The wastes are a strange place, with settlements ran by strange people, such as Faran Brygo. (obviously referencing Brian Fargo) You'll even find yourself dealing with the occult in this game, something having to do with an item called the "bloodstaff". I won't spoil anything though.

Did I mention you can get Wasteland Herpes from a 3-legged hooker?

The combat in this game is nothing special. It's simple and entertaining enough, but sometimes you find yourself running into encounter after encounter and it's so annoying. Also, if you don't memorize the keyboard shortcuts or put the macro creator to good use (ctrl+function), you're going to find yourself dealing with an annoying, clunky layout. Besides the minor annoyance, it won't be hard to learn.

There's not really much to say about this game, it's a classic and rightfully so. I'm not a huge RPG guy but this is an RPG I find myself coming back to every now and again because of how much fun it is. It has an easy to follow story, atmopsheric enviornments, great music, great characters and dialogue, and that wasteland quirkiness we all know and love. I definitely recommend this game to anybody looking to play a great retro RPG, or anyone who's interested in the origin of Wasteland / Fallout.


Also, if you haven't picked it up already, be glad it's $5.99 and not the $14.99 I spent when it was first released on steam... well, I'd say the $14.99 was well worth it.
