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.

A long time ago before the Fallout series you had this - Wasteland. For its time it was an innovative and addicting game, and while it hasn't aged amazingly (and there are a lot more modern post-apocalyptic RPGs like this), playing the original classic might teach you a lesson or two about how modern games like Fallout have become the way they are today. The premise, like Fallout, involves you taking on enemies in a radioactive world and helping survivors. If you happen to be in a nostalgic mood, then try this out.
Wasteland is Fallout’s cousin. It’s basically the same kind of game : a role-playing game set in Post Apocalyptic future. Human civilization as we know it has met its end. All that remain is a wasteland made of radioactive sand and mutant creatures. What a place to go on a adventure! You? You’re a ranger, probably the last ray of Justice light in this desert. Your job is to help people, to save them from monsters and raider. The story is pretty cool (and has a more sinister flair to it than Fallout). Be aware however that Wasteland is an ancient game. This game was release more than 20 years ago. Even Fallout has aged better that Wasteland. But if this doesn’t bother you, then you will fully enjoy your journey through the nuclear wasteland of 2087 Arizona.
