Far Harbor takes place on an island in Maine with a marine setting. While some people found Fallout 4 to be lacking, with this DLC Bethesda knocks it out of the park. Absolutely everything, from the story and atmosphere to the equipment and world is fantastic. A must buy in my opinion.
Very cool DLC offering interesting quests, areas to explore, new settlements to visit, monsters to kill, weapons and armor to use. In general, very solid addon, except one thing, settlements attack can be very tiring. Quite often attacks on community settlements require two quick trips to reach the attacked place because there is no way to access to the previous map when exploring Far Harbor. But the story in really interesting and 10 hours length make it worth the money.
After contraption building and robots crafting, we finally got story DLC. If you liked Point Lookout in Fallout 3, you will also like it. What makes this DLC really great is that it fixed the main issue with vanilla version of Fallout 4 - lack of choices. Here it is done properly and it's a big shame main game is not constructed like this. Location is huge and interesting, there is a lot to discover, and it has the same awesome Fallout gameplay, with interesting story to tell. Shame it's the only really worth mentioning story DLC, but for what it is, it's excellent. I recommend it, especially with discount price!
If you had to pick only one DLC to get for Fallout 4 this would be it. Why? Because it has a good story, a lot of new places to explore, new enemies to defeat, new guns, new armor, new companions and most importantly it feels different compared to any other area in the game because of the darkness and fog. The island the DLC takes place on is huge so if you like to explore then this is for you. Far Harbor feels more like New Vegas than Fallout 4 because of what you can do in the new area.
Far Harbor is a must-have. The story is mysterious, and pulls you right in. However, the thing I like most about this expansion - by far - is the atmosphere: foggy, dark, creepy, intense. There's a tangible feeling of dread hanging over the entirety of Far Harbor and it clings to your heels every step of the way. The new island is also surprisingly large, with many new locations to discover. I haven't nearly seen them all, but there've already been some very cool ones. New guns, new armor, new companions, new story for existing companions, and even some skill-checks, which 'people on the Internet' really seem to love. I heartily recommend this expansion. Well done, Bethesda!
