That's a good 30+hours of free gameplay right there if you like turn based squad tactics games with a tiny dash of Fallout to it. Lots of turn based battles, not so much RPG.

You don't know half how much, someone completed the game in like 12 minutes by playing a low intelligence character that is unable to speak. You can't make it more Fallout than that.
