    Hi folks,
    after years I wanted to have another go at Fallout 1. Bad luck, as my old self imported US-Version got scratched so bad, it won't even recognize the CD. So I looked around ebay and found one guy in the UK selling the game. Problem is, how can I tell if it's the UK or the US version? He doesn't know... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Best regards, Dave

    The box art is a good determinant:

    Also, the UK version isn't very different, just make sure you download the children patch.

    Much preferry UK version too.
    Shame about having to download patches.
    Especially since my computer hates me and won't complete the download.

    Really? I prefer the Yankeee version, but just to have as another Fallout keepsake, I like the UK version.

    It would appear to be the US version.

    Nice find, Grotesque.
    Reminds me of just how much Dutch translations tend to suck.

    'Though the marketing there is also interesting, it's all about choices, consequences and gore.

    Cool stuff Grotesque. I love looking at cover art across regions....must appeal to the graphic designer in me or something.

    Yeah, boxart is an obvious indicator as it will say Mature on it or whatever
