The game is good however it doesn't deliver an experience as tight as Fallout(s).

However I'm glad that the game was made and I look forward to Wasteland 3. It would be a shame not to be done.

And it never will. Fallout was exploration based while wasteland 2 is quest based. I felt like playing a MMO, where you go to an area and collect 10 wolf pelts or whatever. While in FO it all felt natural and I was interested in what I will find and to see what characters I will meet.

A free roaming exploration game with FO2 type city quests would be awesome. but I don't see it happening any time soon as Inxile is busy with a blobber and Obsi would not do it in a hundred years... Going to city and wasting 20-50 guys is not really that fun and entertaining as is skill based exploration.

You have a point but hopes tend to die hard.
