    "All we've come to expect... and a bit more..."

    I doesn't take a genius to look up Fallout 4 reviews online to decide whether the game's massive free-form action role-playing format is to your tastes... there is a wealth of articles and videos out there for you to feast upon. What isn't readily apparent about the game from action packed combat videos and in-depth review sites is the mind boggling scale of the game. The incredibly immersive quality of the engine... how one actually loses track of time just wandering about and getting distracted by all this rich, artificial world has to offer. This game does many things... but one of its finest points is its ability to completely capture your attention and create a feasible and living environment for you to run about in. Events play out with or without your interference or notice... your actions have long lasting and eventual influence on how the world of the game plays out. It truly feels like a living, evolving world to run amok in! Add in a micromanaging town-building mechanic and you have a recipe for utter and complete distraction. The long game isn't for everyone... but almost anyone can sit down and have a fun time with it through the main quest. What other madness the world of Fallout holds for you... well, that just depends on how invested you are... and how long you can avoid going to work;-)

    Let me just say I am a HUGE fan of the Fallout franchise. Bethesda always makes great games and this latest installment is no exception. However, there are a few things worth noting. Like all large games there are glitches and bugs ( yes Bethesda, I'm looking at you). I've been playing for over 40 hours and only had a few crashes and minor annoyances. I've yet to run across anything game breaking so its not enough for me to justify a loss of a star. Good news is I heard Bethesda is releasing a patch so hopefully this will clear up any issues. The graphics could have been better. They aren't bad by any means but for a next gen console I was expecting a bit more. Maybe my expectations were too high. The new additions like weapon modification, power armor, settlements, and love and romance are loads of fun. The junk lying around now has value as it is needed to make weapon, armor mods and is necessary when constructing settlements. I loved the new romance options available to the player. Each NPC that the player can romance has specific perks that can be unlocked once the player reaches the max affinity. My only diappointment was that there were no kissing/hugging scenes between NPC and player. As stated in the header, this is an excellent game. I would highly recommend it to any gamer, casual or hardcore.

    Great Game With Hundreds of Hours of Play Time

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this game. TES: Oblivion and Skyrim come from the same developer as the Fallout series but I had yet to play a Fallout game before this one. Skyrim and Oblivion are some of my favorite games of all time so I was excited to experience another game from Bethesda but this time on a "next gen" system. Fallout 4 is a game that you can jump right into even if you've never played a previous Fallout game before. You'll be able to follow the storyline from the start without being confused or lost because it takes on a brand new story. I found Fallout 4 to be a really fun game although it took some time getting use to it. I had to lower the difficulty to easy while adjusting to the controls but once I played it for about a week or so and leveled up my character, I upped the difficulty to provide more of a challenge again. While I still like the gameplay, story, and overall setting of Skyrim more, it's not really fair to compare the two even though there are a lot of similarities. It's a really fun game with a lot of places to explore and quests to take on. Some tasks become a bit repetitive and I found that certain parts of the game aren't explained well such as how to build certain items for settlements but with time I got the hang it. I highly recommend it.

    An excellent game but missing icing on the cake

    My last foray into the Commonwealth involved following a dog who led me on a trek through a myriad of junk and a Yao Guai, looking for clues ala Detective style and raiding random bodies for loot all to a classical soundtrack on the Pip-Boy. A change of pace to the high-tempo shootouts I had just been in but alas this is the beauty of Fallout, I didn't have to do this and I could have strayed off east somewhere but my subconcious told me otherwise. I can't leave that poor dog on its own. But this is both the strength and weakness of the latest instalment of Fallout. As open as the world is with the variety of enemies and locations, you lack consequence in your actions. Switch on Hardcore Mode on the much maligned Fallout New Vegas for example and those companions can die. You can be affected by thirst, and radiation, carrying twenty nuke-bombs means it will break your back. It's a beautiful game, Fallout 4 though they are typically Bethesda in style and the famous glitches are still around. I just feel the game could have benefited with that last bit of punch, consequences which echo the ruthlessness and harshness of a post-apocalyptic world. That said, I will still sink many hours into this installment but really hope the planned DLC can provide the missing icing on the cake.

    With an advertising slogan like "welcome home" it is not hard to guess that Fallout 4 is intentionally constructed within the world of the preceding Game of the Year, Fallout 3. Since I loved the first game, I do not find issue with this, rather it allowed me to fairly seemlessly integrate back into the world despite a change in platform (from PC to PS4). The world is immersive and gorgeous; there are some who apparently want it "more realistic," but the aesthetic of Fallout has never leaned toward perfect realism, so I don't have a problem with this. I have put about 50 hours into it and have only encountered one progress loosing bug (I jumped my way between a car and a building and was in an inescapable "perpetual fall"). Still trying to get a handled of the new modding system, but so far it has only enhanced the game experience. I was admittedly predisposed to like this game, having played all previous Fallout games with the exception of BOS; however, I feel that the game has met all of my expectations and continues to impress.

    A solid game that missed the mark

    I've put about a hundred hours into this game. I've built up settlements and gone exploring on my own and just "finished" the main storyline. I went for a sniper/rifle build with high perception and intelligence and have to say that gameplay is great in this game; guns handle well, and melee (for my second character) is satisfying and challenging. It's a solid FPS. Where the game fails is in the RPG part of its identity. Most quests could fall under the fetch quest category and almost everyone you meet is either a damsel/gentleman in distress or someone you kill on sight. There are instances where Bethesda creates an opportunity for good storytelling, but it feels shallow in comparison to Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas. Most of the storytelling/ world building comes through texts (notes and terminals). Most NPCs feel like NPCs without any real depth, though companions have backstories that involve completing a kind of loyalty mission for them, but even they can get on your nerves if you don't find one that suits your preferences. Overall, feels like a real missed opportunity to create an engrossing experience. Still, the gameplay is enough to bring me back in the future despite these issues.

    Good game with some major flaws

    The open world of Fallout games is always one of the most interactive and malleable in all of gaming, and that is just as true as ever with this installment. Few games can match the scale of this game, the sheer amount of stuff to do, or the ways in which you can influence the world around you. If you're looking for a game to get lost in for 100+ hours, this is it. Unfortunately, you're also going to feel like you're lost in the 90's when it comes to the technical aspects of the game. The graphics range from mediocre to terrible for a current generation game, the framerate stutters often, and everything is just stiff and disconnected. The gunplay would be nearly unbearable were it not for V.A.T.S. And if all of that isn't bad enough, it's not uncommon to run into a glitch that will stop your progression in its tracks. If you like open world games and love the idea of having an impact on the world around you instead of just being led around by the nose, this game is a must buy. Just go into it with your expectations set correctly and save often.

    Near Perfect Start

    As a Playstation gamer, I was always interested in trying Bethesda's titles on PS3 as I was really big into their earlier titles. Unfortunately they were married with multiple glitches, bugs, and in most cases were downright unplayable. Fallout 3 and New Vegas were technical messes on the PS3 but Bethesda has managed to put together a title that will make you forget all about it. Fallout 4 is the first title from the Bethesda line in the series in which I could really get into. Gameplay is not a huge step up from the previous two titles but I find myself having a lot of fun here and I can see why people enjoy this serious. The story may not be top notch but there is a number of things in which you can do out in the Wasteland. The new base building mechanics and the expanded crafting system added an extra dimension to the game that is satisfying for those of us who enjoy those type of things. From the days of play, I have gone from uninterested in this game at first (picked it up in a buy 2 get 1) to being thoroughly entertained. Definitely worth a buy if this is your entry title.

    I've been playing Fallout since Fallout 2. I've always loved the way the world's were designed and the immensity of objectives to complete. One of my main issue with free roaming games is that many have you "acting as a paper boy". Go here, go there, get this here, he this there. Fallout has always done a great job of NOT doing this. This game is another notch in the belt for Bethesda. Amazing visuals, awesome musical score, highly customizable weaponry, TONS of missions and objectives to complete. An amazing RPG. LOVE THIS GAME! Do yourself a favor and buy this game :) Side note - I've put in about about 26 hours of playing time and haven't event started the main quest.

    I have loaded so many hours playing this game out of shear bliss, then it occurred to me, I am only fighting and adventuring only 1/2 of the time, the rest of the time I am playing SIM to all the settlements, I got to put up walls and plant crops ok but NOT all the friggin time! Then I have scavenge enuff equiptment to make them, armor, weapons, tools, buildings, lights, and so on and so on. But no, it doesn't stop there, after you have them outfitted and armed, you need to up grade their gear because they send bigger and badder enimies upon your settlements, and so on and so on. And it's not just 1 settlements neither, and lets not forget that if your called to protect a settlement and either you get there to late or you miss it, 1/3 - 1/2 of settlement are dead and everything else is broken or crops are destroyed and you basically have to redo that settlement from scratched basically. I don' mind upgrading my weapons and armor, but to do that for every settlement I got?? Totally sucks the fun right of game. The game is about adventuring and having fun, right? What Happened?

    I'm a long time fan of the fallout series. I was super excited about Fallout 3 when that was released and burnt out my old computer playing that. This time around with Fallout 4, I got the game for my PS4. It is really fantastic. The systems i liked from the previous game (first person shooting, vats, open world) are all still there. The additions are nice as well (Settlements and the new skill system), but I feel some could be expanded a bit (I'm looking at you settlements). I like all the story arcs so far, and being able to collect all my potential companions in one place is really nice, but I feel like everyone who isn't a friend is automatically an enemy. This hasn't ruined the game by a long shot, but seems a bit off. Overall the game feels very nice, even though I've yet to actually finish the game (I'm 60+ hours in and I feel like I've barely scratched the surface). So this game has already earned enough game time to be reasonably priced. As an added bonus, my fiance started playing as well and is now 20+ hours into it and enjoying as well. So even better.

    I loved FO3, so it was a no brainer to pre-order FO4. I'm only about 20 hours in, but already like it as much, if not more than Fallout 3. First, the graphics look so much better on the PS4, compared to the previous gen console. However, the mouths of people still don't match up well, to what a person is saying. Not a deal breaker, but definitely noticeable. Second, there is so much to do and explore. I like that you can play the game, how you want to. Do you prefer to build settlements, go right ahead. Maybe just explore and complete side missions, sure. Or you can just play straight through, and complete the main quest. With the options being so plentiful, FO4 delivers high replay value. Now, for those new to this series, it can be a bit of a slow burn. It's definitely not a face paced FPS. The gunplay has improved, which is nice, and there are many moments where there is non stop action. Honestly, there is so much content, and different ways to play, that it doesn't do the game justice, only giving it a quick review. Just buy it if you're on the fence

    I love Fallout. I've owned and played the extensions for Fallout 3 and New Vegas. When I got Fallout 4, I was delighted by the updated look, obviously, but also disappointed that the graphics are not up to par with other current gen games. Though, that disappointment sort of went away as I traveled the wasteland (The Commonwealth) and saw how much Bethesda packed into this game. You can be in the middle of nowhere and stumble upon a scavenger doing target practice with bottles in the woods, or be hiding behind a bunch of cars as a firefight breaks out between Gunners, Raiders, and Super Mutants. The fact that there can be these full fledged battles in the middle of a massive city is just amazing. Though, there can be slowdown when a lot is going on. The story is also great, pretty straight forward but with some twists. Then there's the infinite number of side quests and overall crazy things that happen. Tldr: amazing game, don't pay too much attention to the sub-par current gen graphics but the amount of playability in this game.

    Even though I've been gaming since Oregon Trail and Atari 2600, somehow I missed any of the Fallout games. The one thing that was impossible to miss was the excitement online when Fallout 4 was announced. I read some reactions to the announcement, watched the trailer, and figured what the heck, I'll try it out. I'm so thankful that I did. What an epic game! I'm currently level 31, building settlements, exploring the world, and having a blast. The game brings so many specifics that I love into one great package. Farming, leveling, building homes & caring for people, crafting, questing, exploring, and of course amazing shootouts with all sorts of enemies. My interest is focused purely on Fallout 4 for now. But, if I ever get the time I plan on going back and checking out the previous games and getting the full story. Though different in many ways, I rank this game up there with The Last of Us. I don't think you will regret this purchase and I would certainly recommend it to anyone, familiar or not with the Fallout games.

    I've played every game Bethesda has released since Oblivion, and while I was drawn into that world, Fallout 3, it's when I played New Vegas that I was like these games sure get repetitive and fast. I picked up Skyrim, played 70 hours put it down for two years then forced myself to come back and finish it (another 70 hours) and I never wanted to play it again. So what does that have to do with Fallout 4.....well everything. As it's basically still the same as Fallout 3 and NV, just with prettier graphics. Sure Bethesda prettied it up, gave you more things to do, but you're still collecting the same stuff, searching everywhere for stuff to build your base, build a new weapon, etc. I think the new motto should be Bethesda.....Bethesda games never change. And that's for the good and bad, hopefully they'll shake things up one day instead of playing so safe, otherwise people won't be coming back after they see that nothing really is different anymore. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    I am a newcomer to the Fallout series having only ever watched Youtube clips of past games. I was interested in experiencing this franchise for the first time on my Playstation 4 and was not at all disappointed! The game looks and sounds great on next-gen hardware, has an incredibly well developed story and setting, and provides a seemingly endless gaming experience. The open world is very large and deep, giving plenty of opportunity for exploration and creativity especially in the development and management of settlements. While some elements do become repetitive and predictable the world is large enough that one can seek a variety of experiences on the fly and with a little effort keep the experience fresh. The best way to describe this game is a well developed hybrid of favorite first person shooters (Call of Duty, Battlefield) with the open world freedom and fun of Minecraft. I recommend this to anyone looking to get lost in a game and enjoy a fantastic experience over and over again.

    I never played any of the other Fallout games until this one, cause a friend recommended it to me and I have to say I'm hooked, this is one of the funnest games I've played on a while, I love the vast open world or Fallout 4. This game has a good story and a lot of side quests you can do that will lead up to hours of fun and adventure.I'm 30+ hours into the game and still haven't complete the main story and all of the side quests, and I'm still having a lot of fun playing the game ,cause there is so much you can do, everything from building bases, finding loot and materials to upgrade your armor and weapons and use to build your base, and I love it, one of my favorite things to do is to explore for hours cause you'll never know what you'll run into or find in the massive open world of Fallout 4. I would highly recommend this game to anybody that is a fan of the Fallout Franchise and I'd also recommend this game to anybody who has never played any of the Fallout games also.

    Just like the 2 Bethesda made Fallout games before it, Fallout 4 delivers the goods. Same great post apocalyptic atmosphere but this time you're exploring the ruins of Boston. From the start, Fallout 4 had me hooked. The character customization is deep and you can make your character appear pretty much any way you want, male or female. The perk system is also a great way to customize your character to your style of play. Every level you can gain a new perk or boost any existing one as long as you meet the requirements for that perk. Admittedly, I haven't beat the game and I'm not sure how far I am into the main quest but I've spent 50+ hours playing and it's absolutely addicting and a blast. As with other Fallout games, I'm sure this one has its bugs but I've yet to encounter any major ones and nothing that has affected my experience with the game. Overall, I think this is a must have game that anyone can get into. Just be sure to kiss your social life goodbye!

    A mediocre edition to a long-running series

    Everybody aboard the hype train to welcome in the newest edition of Fallout. This game brings about many features to players: an annoying cast of nagging characters, with a few gems in between that truly beget emotion and care; a list of tedious missions that offer little more than older counterparts; a game play that comes from the jaded traditions of today's oh-so-caring gaming companies; all topped with the mediocrity that comes from exalting something that truly does nothing to improve the face of the gaming franchise. Now, this does not mean that Fallout 4 is, in and of itself, a bad game or a bad sequel. I would say it's an ungraceful sequel, milling itself about in past traditions of Fallout glory and a new field that bogs down the game rather than enhances it. If you truly wish to foray into the new wasteland, than you should by all means do it; you might have a better than I did. However, I would heavily suggest spending your money elsewhere.

    Fallout 4 is a real fun game! The world is huge and filled with many things to explore. I spent many hours just wondering around and filling out the map. There is so much to do in this game, you can do the main missions, side missions, or just explore. Some of the missions are really cool and fun. The story is decent and offers quite a bit of choice on how to handle things. Building and maintaining settlements is a great addition to the Fallout series and I hope it stays. The RPG elements feel good and you have a lot of perks to choose from. In conclusion the game is great and you can easily lose yourself in the Fallout world. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes open world RPGs with guns, melee weapons, power armor suits, and plenty of customization. Also as of the time this review is posted the PS4 version of Fallout 4 will not have mod support. So if you want mods you will need to get it on the Xbox or the PC.
