The setting and atmosphere have stayed perfectly intact in the newest fallout game which to me is the most important part. The shooting mechanics have also been vastly improved over 3 and even new vegas. The part where 4 drops the ball is in on the rpg side of things. You can still have all sorts of crazy builds so mechanically it is still sound, but as far as making your own decisions and there being tons of ways for quests to end there is little to no variety. If you play the fallout games for the world and atmosphere then definitely pick this one up, but if the fact that your character really has very little choice, usually down to just yes or no then you might wanna steer clear of it or try it out from a friend before grabbing it.
I shall start by saying that if you are deciding to buy this game then don't let the negative reviews sway you. In general, Fallout 4 is an amazing game and can be incredibly fun. All in all, If you're a Fallout fan because of previous stories then you might not feel fulfilled playing this game, however if you love character creations, lore and immersive environments with untold stories then I completely recommend this game to you.
I know a lot of people are pissed because of the simplified dialogs and reduced RPG element. And this is the only bad thing you can say about the game. World is huge , there are hordes of interesting NPC , graphics are pretty good. The gameplay is so fluid and rich - you can play as a silent ninja or devastate everything crossing your way with the heavy armor. The village management adds a new big layer to the game broad enough to lose you days in playing. And everything wrapped in one of my favorite retro-futuristic settings.
Fallout 4, an acopaliptic world that you will enjoy even if you're new or an old player, this game will give you a lot of hours of fun and stuff to do! Positives Graphics: Much better than the previous Fallout games, the world is less bland and has more than one colour scheme. Just roaming around the wasteland and admiring everything there is to offer is a ton of fun. Combat: Whether it is sitting back at a distance with a high powered sniper rifle or bashing enemies heads in with a sledgehammer, the combat is gory, smooth and rewarding. Enemies: Around one corner you could find a base full of hardened raiders itching to blow your head off without a thought and around the other corner there's a bloody 15 foot mutated chameleon with razor sharp metre long claws roaring and charging at you. Customization: A huge array of different armour and weapon types to choose from to fit your style, on top of that there is in-depth modding of both weapons and armour that is worth putting some time into in order to get the best experience. Factions All of the factions have their own ideals and agendas made clear, they are all unique and have many interesting fleshed out characters and base locations. Negatives Bland Characters: While not all of the characters in the game are like talking to a brick wall, there are several that just get on my nerves cough* Preston Garvey cough*, they show no emotion and sometimes the robot characters are more interesting to talk to than the actual humans... Overuse of Radiant Quests: While radiant quests are a large part of any Bethesda RPG and for the most part are ok, Fallout 4 seems to use them a lot more to fill in gaps than previous titles, there are not a huge amount of interesting side quests compared to a game like Skyrim, a large number of quests are just radiant fetch quests that never end, give you little rewards and are just downright boring. The Main Story: The classic lost family member scenario with a cliche twist at the end, while the story is interesting and the whole idea of the institute and what it is trying to do is cool, the story seems like it was written by a 14 year old. A solid Fallout game, it could have been better but if you are a fan of Fallout then go for it. Oh yeah and use mods of course!!
If you're looking for a fun expereince with great characters and an interesting plot, you bought the wrong game. Just get New Vegas if you haven't already played it. And if you have already played New Vegas, play it again. The immersion in this game is just horrendous. I played Fallout 4 for 15 hours, and I will likely never play it again. I don't feel any obligation to care about Sean, who apparently is a pretty big part of the strewn together fibers of a story this game has. In the wasteland I felt no genuine threats because anything can easily be taken out with weapons and power armor that is just readily given to you at the beginning of the game. The weapon modding is great, but that's the only thing that makes this game interesting. If Fallout 4 was sold for 10 dollars, I'd recommend it. But 60 dollars is just too much money for a game whos only saving grace is the highly detailed charater customization and weapons modding system. Aside from that, everything just feels time consuming and drole. The character customization is probably the part of Fallout 4 that I had the most fun with. With all of that being said, time to tackle the wasteland of New Vegas again; I have no doubts in my mind that I'll have a better time there. I'd give this game a 4 out of 10.
