"Fallout 4 has all the ambiance and history that made its predecessors such wonderful places to get lost for hours at a time, with a much more coherent set of stories within it." - [Polygon]
"The world, exploration, crafting, atmosphere, and story of Fallout 4 are all key parts of this hugely successful sandbox role-playing game." - [IGN]
The hype is real! We've been waiting a long time for Fallout 4, and it's looking like it'll be an absolute treat!
We're shipping up to Boston for this one, with Bethesda saying that we'll actually experience a little of the world before the bomb was dropped and everything went a little bit nuclear.
The new crafting elements look fantastic, with true freedom to create armaments and defences on the fly, not to mention the ability to build our own shelters and bases too! Dogmeat's back, and thankfully indestructible given how much of a liability he was in Fallout 3, and we can't wait to get stuck once more into this richly-detailed post-apocalyptic setting!
Bethesda Game Studios, the creators of the 2008 ‘Game of the Year’, Fallout® 3 and global phenomenon The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®, welcome you to the eagerly awaited Fallout® 4 – their most ambitious game ever, and the next generation of open-world gaming.

Really nice game, the main storyline might be a bit light but nonetheless this game is really enjoyable. It was my first Fallout to be honest and I fall in love with it. I totally recommend it.
Pro 1) Settlements ! Who wouldn't want to built it's personal house from scratch in the wastelands? 2) Insanely giant map, with lots of location to visit and clear out (Take out the trash...get rid of whoever lives inside :P) 3) Companions and quest related which will explain their stories, and the possibilty 4) Great amount of quests to complete 5) Same game engine as skyrim. 6) Mods ! Mods ! (Read on cons part about the mods if you're new) 6) Crazy good character creation tool http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=800760364 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs_OacEq2Sk Cons 1) Limited amount of items a settlement can hold (there's ways around it, but might cause stability issues, google is your friend) 2) Same game engine as skyrim, expect bugs. 3) You want mods and get achievements at same time while playing ? Bethesda says you're not allowed, if i recall, on skyrim (not the special edition) for example you could use mods, and obtain them still. Far Harbor DLC: Great story, atmosphere and locations, you can combine it with this mod to have even a better experience over there. https://mods.bethesda.net/#en/workshop/fallout4/mod-detail/2517716 Nuka world: Well well well, what we have here ?! A little vault dweller taking up on the raiders, and becoming the Overboss, who later take controls and "command" them. Automatron: Very short DLC, which will let you once completed, create your own robots. Vault-Tec ! Build a brighter future...underground ! Ever wanted to be an overseer ? Now you can become one, and build your own personal vault. P.S. Missing limbs...Dismembrements and deaths are not Vault-Tec faults ! So far, i'm enjoying it quite a lot, on contrary of how many people seems to have disliked it, which was my issue with Fallout NV (which i didn't like much), and Fallout 3 (which i loved).
Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are my two favorite games of all time, so my excitement with Fallout 4 was near critical levels, and it turned out to be... fairly impressive. I aim review the game as a continuation of those games, not a stand alone. From my perspective, this game aims to introduce a lot of new, never before seen (in a fallout game) mechanics. Crafting becomes a reason to hold on to all that junk you find in the wasteland, and becomes one of the more flushed out aspect of the new additions to the game. The graphics are fine, but the Commonwealth feels much more empty than previous maps. The story is sub-par and attempts to be edgy, but just kind of ends up falling flat. The side quests are more fun than in previous games for the most part, but few are as memorable. If it were not for the mods available for this game, i think it would have outstayed its welcome, but the community around this game will keep it relevant for years to come.
In one word: THE GAME. Although it has lost some aspect with respect to the previous title, others have been much improved. Positive points: -History: It has intrigued you since the minute 1, although you can always entertain with the '' recruiting '' missions, which are the secondary ones. -Excellent variety of protections, clothes, weapons, the modifications are a point, also available for the servoarmadura. Everything RPG style. -The numerous variables change every scenario you play, enemies, type of damage (lightning, fire ...) depending on the enemy. Your decisions can foment wars between groups and declined by a side for the victory (BHoS). -Your content can be completed with mods, a very important point, since they are free and you have from graphical improvements to constructions for the camps, armor, weapons, etc. I used NexusMods. - World very complete, many hidden stories, unique weapons ... Bad points: Camps: At first it may be something positive, but over time, spending resources on them is throwing the materials, never attacking them, or practically never. The only good thing is they produce food. -Above all, one thing I sin, and it's in the graphics. Although not bad, it looks better Tomb Raider 2013. As I mentioned earlier it can be supplemented with mods, but it should come with better graphics. -DLC's of constructions that should come free, since with mods we have more variety. Finally, I have to say that I recommend it in spite of everything, it has the Fallout essence of 3, but with a facelift in many ways. Great game, with many hours of fun, I have 150 and only I have passed a final of 4. Note 8,5 / 10 subjectively, 7/10 objectively.
As much as i hate to say, Fallout 4 is a disappointment to people who want a game to replace the old Fallout 3. Don't get me wrong, it is still a good game to play but it just doesn't feel the same anymore. They have replaced Fallout 3's wasteland color palette with something that is much more vibrant. It is not big deal to some people, but it does lessen the immersion for me. With the new color palette comes new character models. Everything in the game just looks a bit cartoonish now. Again, not a big deal, you learn to get used to it. Storywise, it isn't as good as Fallout 3 but now they have multiple endings, which encourages multiple playthroughs, not that you won't play the game multiple times anyways. Even with multiple endings, I still find the story weak and predictable. It also has pacing issues. Because of those setbacks, I am rarely encouraged to do the main quest. My biggest complaint is that they have simplified the RPG element too far. The game no longer have skill points, it's just all perks. So build diversity is not as varied and fun as Fallout 3. Dialogue has also been simplified too much. Despite 4 choices to respond to an NPC, it is just an illusion of choice. You really only have 1 way to interact with the NPC. If you have never played Fallout 3, this game will be a blast to play. For Fallout fans like myself, you will be disappointed with this version of the game. None the less, the game still offers hours and hours of fun.
