      Is Fallout 4 a perfect game? Absolutely not. Is it fun? Definitely. Things I like: +The character customization is easy to use and ensures you can't make a truly disgusting character. +The voice overs are extremely well done. I like not reading the dialogue (note: you can turn on subtitles still) and just skipping ahead; the main character does a fantastic job and so do most supporting characters. +Looking into containers can be done in real time. You can still enter the container to loot all, but everything can be taken without going into another menu. +Weapons and armor can be modified. Most modifications will change the appearance. The modifications have significant impact. +During conversations, you can move around. By interacting again, you'll go back into the cinematic mode. +Power armor. You feel POWERFUL in that piece of equipment. They don't restrict it to "heavy" armor experts anymore ensuring everyone can use it. It's more like a vehicle than an armor. +Building settlements is fun. I've spent way too much time already. +Legendary enemies. They keep you on your toes and will offer some fantastic rewards. +Radiation Storms. Foggy, green, and lightning. +Perk system. It replaces the old skill system and allows for a wide range of customization and play styles. While not as clean as Skyrim's to navigate, I love the update here. Things I don't like: -Stiff facial animations, wooden character movement. The lips will move but the face remains stiff, creating awkward looking dialogue cinematics. -speaking of that The dialog options suck. You always got four choices and one of them is 'sarcastic'. Every so often a dialog option in yellow will show up and if you got a high enough charisma, there's a cha-ching sound and you get some experience. I don't get the sense that dialog actually really matters and talking to people is a drag and is not a relaxing break in the action that I hoped it'd be. I don't think I like the third person perspective. I think it worked for Mass Effect and the older Fallout games because in that game you really need to lose yourself in the story in order to enjoy it and if you skip all the dialog stuff. I think Fallout 4 should have either gone the DA route or done away with the third person cutaways altogether because they're clunky and they seem kinda buggy at times. And they're uninteresting for the most part, but the voice acting is good. And the overall plot of trying to find your kidnapped son doesn't appeal to me, though as a sandbox game, you can kinda overlook it. I didn't finish the game, so perhaps the story becomes better later on. -Dated graphics. Some of the textures are amazing. I've ran into some really low resolution (some look straight out of Xbox/Playstation 2 generation). I've also run into an LOD (level of detail) distance rendering bug at some quarry - the textures didn't switch over and it looked like Minecraft... it also created a veneer over the actual terrain causing me to fall through the textures and have difficulty navigating. -Companions are very powerful, even on the harder settings. I play on the harder settings and I can sit back and let my companions take over 90% of fights. The only times I need to help is if there is a legendary or particularly strong enemy. -The difficulty of combat situations span a huge gulf. It can go from a pathetically easy encounter to nearly impossible one minutes later. -Bugs, bugs, bugs. I had high hopes that after 6 years they would have ironed out more of the basic, common bugs. Unfortunately I was wrong.

      Let me start with this: I love all of the fallout games as well as the elder scrolls games. I've read lots of negative reviews of this game which surprised me. I'm going to address some of those points here. Oblivion is to Fallout 3 as Skyrim is to Fallout 4. No Skill System: I find this untrue. Any level up grants you points to either pick a perk or put a point into your special. This being said, unlike past fallout games you can't put 10 points into intelligence and be a master of everything. There is no perk that allows you two skill points on level up instead of one. This doesn't so much bother me because the character customization is so much more dynamic because of it. It forces you to strategically allocate your points so that you character specializes in certain things. You can't be a master of all weapons, lock picking, crafting, charisma, and be able to carry as much as you want. This is very similar to the way the skill system in Skyrim is. I love it, it makes the game more challenging and every time I play I can have a different experience. There aren't enough random quests: I've read this complaint a ton and I have found it to be completely false. I've been playing this game pretty consistently since it's release and have yet to begin the main story line past the initial quest. That being said, random quests don't fall into your lap as easily. As is characteristic of Bethesda you have to talk to people, but there are also tons of quests that aren't marked on the map or initiated in towns. You have to go find them. This means if you fast travel everywhere you won't. There are hidden locations and quests all over the world. Not enough dialogue options: This is semi true. You only have four options for dialogue when speaking to someone. But it also gives you random options sometimes depending on your skills. Also, if you don't pick certain options you can miss out on items and quests. Bugs: Yes there are bugs, sometimes you have to initiate a conversation more than once to get it started. Small complaint but annoying. The game also just released so I'm sure there will be a patch in the future. Companions pick up random items and then can't carry the ones you hand them because they are overburdened. It's still an awesome way to get free stuff. The build mode can be buggy but this is usually resolved by exiting and trying again. Bad graphics: Um no, the graphics are awesome. I'm on the PS4 and I was impressed. If I had an alienware I would probably be blown away. I love that you don't have to open something to see what is inside it or loot it this would save me time if I didn't find myself opening my pip boy often when I'm trying to close the loot menu, which you don't have to do. This will be resolved when I reprogram my brain to not hit O when I'm done looting. Overall I am loving this game, it is more difficult, there are more options, and I feel as though this will entertain me for years to come just like Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, and Fallout NV have. At least until Bathesda releases another elder scrolls game, which could be years at this rate and then I'll have to allocate my time equally between the two. Great game. Hours upon hours of entertainment. Worth the money.

      Previous Experience: 100's of hours in Fallout 3 and Fallout NV - Completed them both a few times. Playtime: A little over 3.5 hours. Cons: Same engine, the game feels the same in many regards. Graphics seem dated. A lot has changed since 2008, npc movement for example. Enemies run towards you using the most direct path, bounding on top of some obstacles instantly. It seems like some area's are a direct copy from fallout 3 (with new textures), so far that has been limited to an overpass. Settlement Crafting can be annoying if you are missing 1 unique part, with no way of knowing how to get it. There is a lot of junk you can break down, but it's tedious to do. The beginning in vault 111 isn't a very fun story and it's a little too forced, unlike Fallout 3. Minor Bugs or glitches: The only one I experienced so far is dialog subtitles, they get stuck and quit working. It's a minor annoyance really and you might not even use them (disabled by default). NPC's didn't use my selected in game name "Bob", thought it was on the list, maybe not. Neutral: Some PS4 controls aren't really intuitive, the good thing is the physical manual actually does have the default keymap in it. I've had to reference it a few times. Digital buyers I don't know about your manual. Some of the music is exactly the same from fallout 3, maybe that's good for some of you, I was looking forward to an entirely new soundtrack. Pro's Settlement building is pretty neat and pretty fun. Weapons are fun, and customization options are extreme but they depend on your skill set and salvaging abilities. No more weapon breaking in the middle of a firefight. The enemies are pretty fierce, be sure to wear your brown pants if deathclaws are around. Powerarmor is even more fun, although wearing it is limited by your fusion fuel, still its a good balance. However it does also take damage and need repairs. Shooting in general is a lot better, it does feel like a FPS if you don't use VATS for every shot, a mix of both is usually required in my experience. Lots of new ground to explore, and living just northwest of Boston myself the game hits home. The enveloping environment more than makes up for the dated graphics. Takeaway: The game is fun and adds new elements as well as fixed old annoyances. If you loved Fallout 3, you will probably enjoy Fallout 4. If you've never played Fallout or Skyrim and think you might be interested in a new RPG, I'd say this wont disappoint you if you are willing to accept graphics that seem a little dated.It's really like it's own little world, and you get the feel of it quite well. For these reasons I give it a B+

      I own the PC version in addition to this, and if you have a decent enough PC, I'd recommend buying that version over either of the console versions. The PS4 version performs a bit better than the Xbox One version, but both have really bad frame drops in the 20s and sometimes the high teens. They're also locked at 30 frames. I was a little concerned about how Fallout 4 would turn out. Fallout New Vegas is one of my favorite games, but it is developed by Obsidian, while 3 and 4 were developed by Bethesda. 3 was just clunkier in comparison to NV- the dialogue was fairly bad, they had a very limited cast of voice actors, and the story was very simplistic. New Vegas had a very interesting story, with great dialogue, and a wide variety of characters and voice actors. Thankfully, Bethesda turned it up a notch (though I will say NV is still written better). Compared to the last gen games, a decent amount has changed. It's not anything that flies in your face like crazy, but the refined combat and more polished gameplay are definite, noticeable improvements. The gunplay has more of a Bioshock vibe—it doesn't play like Call of Duty, but you're also not standing still by an enemy shooting at them, which is what would tend to happen in 3 and NV. The inclusion of a settlement system adds a whole new layer to the game. It gives meaning to all the random junk lying around in buildings, and is a fun little side task, while also being a huge time sink if you really get into it. The only real issue with it is that they never really explain how to do a lot of basic workshop functions. Thankfully, plenty of people have written guides which are easily found with a quick Google search. The only things I disliked in this game are: -the dialouge system is simplified. You only ever get 4 dialouge options, and dialogue just isn't as interesting as in NV. However, their implementation of the dialogue wheel is better than how Bioware did Dragon Age 2. At least the summaries match up more with the actual dialogue. -the stat and perk systems have been merged and simplified. It locks a lot of skills behind level caps that had not been previously tied to level in past games. It's definitely easier for newcomers though, so I can somewhat understand. -the writing could be better. Overall it's better than 3, but still a step down from New Vegas. I am glad that they took note of NVs multiple factions, rather than just having a good and an evil faction like in 3.

      I am new to console gaming, having used PC for two decades... except for Wii and Sega Genesis... so bear that in mind. I am still getting used to Sony's implementation of gaming and online play for these. Another friend recommended this game, and is a power user. His view on play online for this game is that it is either nonexistent or not worth playing online. (No ability for team play?) I'm not sure but mention this so that if the game sounds interesting but team play is important, you check that aspect out first before purchase. Now for the good stuff. What I just said above is the converse of what I was looking for. Because I'm still getting used to the controls on this system I don't see myself as a significant benefit to any team online and I've avoided playing in that mood for that reason. Another words I personally I'm more of a liability than a benefit when it comes to other members and team play. So for me being this new user I appreciate the fact that this game has a primarily offline orientation. I can play without making mistakes that everybody sees in other words. And there's plenty of content for an offline player. It sports an interesting (and always pertinent) storyline about what it takes to survive after a nuclear war. It has some more modern gaming features like crafting collecting resources strategic play. I recommend it for anybody who wants to play on their own offline can appreciate a survival based storyline and especially those users who may be new to the system. I say this because the game play works well for somebody unfamiliar with the controls by starting out at a very slow pace introducing opponents at a very easy rate and allowing you to survive a little bit longer and learn a little bit slower then it may be for you to walk into the game like a first person shooter or other action primary games. Fallout has a nice mix of everything it is a great introduction to Sony's console gaming and for that alone I rate this game very highly.

      If you played either Fallout 3 or New Vegas, you'll have an idea about what to expect. Yes, it's more of the same overall, with a few noticeable changes. Settlement building is the newest addition. It's a great idea, though a bit poorly implemented, requiring Perks to really taken advantage of the concept. It can be fun, however, and I definitely spent way too much time doing it. The world is massive, and it's easy to ignore the mostly forgettable main story to forge your own path in the world, which is wide open to your character, so long as they can survive. There are some poor design choices really holding the game back. Repeating radiant quests involving certain characters are more annoying than encouraging, unless the idea is to make you the player want to quit the game. Now your character is voiced, but that aspect doesn't add anything and instead detracts from how conversations are structured, and there's a to of sameness to many of the environments/locations, meaning you go in, clear it of whichever enemy type is in there, pick some locks, hack some computers, rinse, repeat. More variety in mission structure would've done a lot to alleviate the issue, but it seems like the focus is on quantity over variety. You can easily play this game with one character for over 100 hours, but I'm not so sure that's always a pro given the repetitive nature of the core gameplay mechanics. I did encounter glitches. Twice the game quit with an error message, but I didn't lose much because I saved often (seriously, save often). I also had some audio loop bug that just kept repeating, which was solved by quitting the game to the main menu. Funny how stuff like that works sometimes. There are some other minor problems. The framerate can seriously stutter at later points in the game when Vertibirds are around, or just when a large number of enemies are encountered. Or just because. Some of these problems will probably be ironed out at some point. Overall, it's a great game that is perhaps a bit too ambitious for its own good.

      Well the much anticipated game of the year has finally arrived! Too bad it wasn’t all the much to get worked up about at least for me is wasn't. I have played fallout 3 and loved it to death, you can imagine my excitement when I head of the release of the next installment, I pre-ordered the second it was available to do so, after long weeks I finally got it! I raced home and loaded it up (after some instillation of course) after playing roughly 48 hours’ worth of the game (no not in a row) I concluded I was thoroughly disappointed with it, I guess my expectations ran much higher than they should of been or the game really wasn’t that great, the replay value, really isn’t there, then again if you really commit do doing everything the game has to offer you won’t be finished with it for quite some time! you might need a new console before you need to re play fallout 4 again, so its extensive world map, interesting creatures of the wasteland, and semi humorous side quest and conversations from fallout 3 have made their transition to fallout 4 quite smoothly so it shadows the 3rd reels white closely.... to closely at times, there were some parts in the game where I actually forgot I had fallout 4 in the disk tray and actually ejected it to see it was fallout 3 because at points it felt so closely related it’s like I wasn’t playing a new game at all and well that was the disappointing part for me, after all this hype, and advertisement you really wanted it to be good, but alas it was just ok but never the less if I where you after a bit when this game hits a sale id pick it up but not before it get below the 30.00 or so mark it’s not worth much more money than that.

      Having played Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, I had some high expectations of this game being on next gen. Fallout 3 was excellent and I liked New Vegas, but not as much as 3. Fallout 4 has made some changes compared to past entries and so far I'm enjoying every aspect of it. There are some mixed reviews about the graphics, but I don't think they are as bad as some people make it out to be. The first thing I really enjoy is the color pallet. You're not stuck looking at the same green/gray/brown color combination, which I thought was boring after a while. The VATS system is still as easy to use and combat is still nice and refreshing. Even though I am still going through missions, I don't feel like it's too difficult or easy. The combat is challenging enough (probably until I encounter the really difficult enemies) at the moment. The control scheme is the same as the other two titles I mentioned, which makes picking this up for me easy. I like the added Quick Access menu, which allows you to quickly draw 4 items (guns, first aid) without going into the Pip-Boy menu. The voice acting is great and the voice actors do a great job at making the characters believable. Encountering companions and enemies makes this a really enjoyable experience. Those familiar with the previous Fallout games know that you can add perks by leveling up and I do see some new and interesting perks. A lot of the same perks have also returned to the series which are still great to have. If you are a fan of the series, I can't recommend this game enough. You'll spend hours out in the Commonwealth searching for new locations, companions, quests, and items. I know I'm going to put in as many hours that I can (not all at one time) with this game and it will easily redeem the full price tag in no time.
