You will want to go to the "No Mutants Allowed" Website and go to "Files". Download the Ri-Res Patch for Fallout 1 and 2. Also download the killap Unofficial patch's for the games. You run these patches after steam has already installed the game. follow the instructions for each of the patch files and you should be good after you start the game and go into settings.

I am able to run fallout 1 and fallout2 in in Win 7 64bit with no issues. I am not using compatibility mode. I haven't tried patching fallout tactics but would assume theres also something for that on the No Mutants Allowed website.

Hope this helps.

Don't bother with the patch, it sucks, just go into your steam/steamapps/common/fallout 2 folder and search for the ddraw.ini file, open it in notepad and look for the heading "Graphics" its directly under a long row of X's, look 4 lines down and you will see "mode=0" change this to mode=4, and then a couple more lines down you will see "graphics height" and "graphics width" AKA the resolution, change each value to your desired resolution all the way up to 1920x1080! there ya go, download free fix, have fun! peace!

That's odd. When I choose mode=4, FO2 just minimizes on startup and won't appear on screen, even though it's still on the task bar.
