It just came to my (Robin Ek, TGG) attention that DaemonCZ’s “Fallout 2” mod “Fallout 1.5: Resurrection” won the “Fan Creation of the Year” award at the SXSW Gaming Awards, because as you might remember. I wrote that Sergeant Mark IV’s “Brutal Doom 64” won the very same award just the other day.However, I honestly didn’t hear about “Fallout 1.5: Resurrection” until today (I must have missed the mod’s trailer during the SXSW event due to the excitement over Brutal Doom 64’s award victory).

Anyways, I just gave Fallout 1.5 a try myself, and I’ll have you know that it’s a freaking awesome “Fallout 2” mod. So much so that I would recommend everyone to give it a try for themselves (you won’t regret it!). Well, I think you got the idea that I like the mod a whole lot, but what exactly is “Fallout 1.5: Resurrection”? Well, this is the actual mod description by the creator himself (DaemonCZ):

“Fallout 1.5: Resurrection is a modification for Fallout 2. Its story takes place chronologically between 1 and 2, hence the name. It takes place in New Mexico. Content-wise, it rivals or possibly surpasses the original Fallout.

Fallout 1.5: Resurrection is a new, old-school Fallout. It’s a modification for Fallout 2 with a completely new story taking place in the Fallout universe. The plot is set in the time between Fallout 1 and 2, east of the future NCR in New Mexico. That means you won’t visit the original places. Instead, you’ll discover entirely new, creative locations that allowed us to have more freedom with the story. The player’s character wakes up, heavily wounded, in a dark cave, not knowing how it got there, or who it is. Thus you start from a scratch, searching for your past, which is darker than it might seem on the first sight… We won’t give away any more details about the story, not to spoil your game experience. Though you can count on surprising twists in plot and unexpected finale. As big fans of Fallout, we’ve tried to take the best from all of the classic Fallout games.

Easter eggs and jokes, with which Fallout 2 was literally overfilled, have been folded into the background. Instead, the great atmosphere of decadence and hopelessness enjoyed by so many in the first Fallout game returns. The world is still chaotic, with only a few, small, independent communities connected by tenuous trade relations. The wasteland is an unfriendly place where law is on the side of whoever has the biggest gun. The name “Resurrection” was chosen for two reasons. Firstly, resurrection is a theme tied closely to the main character who, at the beginning of the game, practically rises from the dead. Secondly, our modification represents the resurrection of good old Fallout. We didn’t want to re-imagine the entire game system. Instead, our aim was to bring back this classic RPG in its original form. Many remember that feeling when they first played Fallout; until you completed the game, you journeyed through interesting locations filled with fascinating things. Even after several play-throughs, you continued to find new, exciting stuff. Players could really get into such a game, so that’s exactly the kind of game we’ve endeavoured to create”. – DaemonCZ, the creator of Fallout 1.5: Resurrection

“Fallout 1.5: Resurrection” is with no doubt (whatsoever) an absolute must play for fans of the old-school “Fallout” games.

In other words, “Fallout 1.5: Resurrection” is most definitely worth a try if you enjoyed the old-school “Fallout” games. Other than that, I would  also recommend you to check out the free fanmade “Fallout 2” expansion by The Bear Dude (it’s called “Fallout 2 Restoration Project“). Because that is another great project that’s worth checking out if you’re into the old “Fallout” games.

And with that said, what do you think about “Fallout 1.5: Resurrection” and “Fallout 2 Restoration Project”? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
