    More post-apocalyptic madness from Bethesda. Prepare to wander the wasteland on an endless quest to scavenge a life from the ruins.

    I have been a huge fan of this series and this game is no exception, however, there is alot of tedious time consuming events and quests that I could be happy that were not there or much less time sucking. On the whole I reccomend but be prepared to spend time on it

    This is a huge game. I'm trying not to play the storyline quests too much to make it last longer!

    Not the best Fallout, but still a good time

    Fallout 4 lacks the malleable, well-written story of its predecessor, Fallout: New Vegas. This game's impressive depiction of post-apocalyptic Boston is populated with little more than tired cliches and boring fetch quests, and, unlike earlier games in the series, violence is almost always the answer to any problem. The settlement building options added here are brilliant, however, and they kept me coming back long after I grew sick of the main story.

    I like games that make you think, not just run around constantly shooting. Has enough of everything, fighting and quests to keep you interested for a long time. One of my favorites.

    Fallout 4 is, overall, a great followup to Fallout 3 and New Vegas. It follows pretty much the same fomula, but with much better graphics and a more dense world to explore. Unfortunately, the main quest that gets forced on you isn't written very well and takes away from the "play whatever kind of character you want" promise of the series.

    If you enjoyed previous Fallout games, you'll definitely enjoy this one. While not as open as New Vegas, it is still very unique and fun. The story is short, but there are plenty of things to do, such as quests and fighting and finding things. Definitely recommend.

    This game here is one of my favorite 2015 games. So much to do, and explore. You can play this game for a while, and still not finish the main quest if you choose to. You'll get your moneys worth out of this for a while.

    I played Skyrim and loved it, this game exceeds all the aspects of Skyrim tenfold. Open expansive world, that is just getting bigger with DLC's. It's a builders dream/nightmare, so many options, so many! And when you do get tired of building (or run out of materials/caps) time for questing! More importantly you can make game changing decisions that will close off certain aspects of the story in the game, which only makes you want to play it again with a new character or save. But as the title of my review suggests, be prepared to lose many many (amazing) hours to this game.

    Never played any of the other FO games before but I had heard they were good so I picked up fo4. I was very overwhelmed by how extensive it was. So much to do. Which is good I guess. I don't really like the dialog options, they don't really have any consequences. Also I find the green indicators, while on a quest, are kinda hard to follow and it ends up with what should be a simple task taking forever.

    Huge world to explore

    I particularly enjoy games where I can explore a lot. I'm 10 or so hours in and I've barely scratched the "main quest". Instead I love to jumping around the world and finding all the fun details, easter eggs, characters, etc. If you enjoyed this about Fallout 3 then Fallout 4 is a no brainer. My only complaint is that I don't really enjoy the settlement building "sim city" like mode. It's alright... and you can generally ignore it apart from some simple quests... but it's more of a focus than I expected.

    I will start by saying I really like Fallout 4. It is fun to play and everything they packed in there makes the game very enjoyable. However, there is a lot of needless stuff or things that have no substance. Go clear this place, or find this item. They get repetitive. They should not have tried to pack so much into the game. They should have focused more on less quests and places to go so that it did not feel like you were just wasting time in the game. But overall the game is great.

    A stripped down RPG experience compared to F3

    I was extremely disappointed to find out that Bethesda stripped away skills and rolled some of them into the perk system. Because there are no longer skills, you don't have dialog skill checks anymore (for example having a Guns or Explosives option in a conversation). There are a few charisma/speech checks but that is it, so now conversations are drastically more linear and quest objectives are also more linear than in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Speaking of the dialog system, besides having no skill checks they also dumbed down the way the actual system is handled. Now you get 4 options, similar to Bioware's recent games, and they are all presented in short summaries of what your character will say. Also many times you don't actually have 4 choices (which even if it had 4, would be terrible compared to the previous games and the amount of options you had), you will find that at least 2 of your "choices" will end up in your character saying or doing the same thing. It's by far the worst dialog system I've ever seen in my 30 years of playing RPGs. Then there are the bugs. Personally I'ven't run into any serious ones yet, but the framerate on the PS4 version is pretty awful and among the worst I've seen on the console to date. It's not uncommon to see the game dip into the 15fps range during decent sized firefights How any of that affects you though is up to your individual tolerance level. I don't think it's unplayable but some might feel that way.

    Not even close to more of the same from Bethesda!

    If you love open-world sandbox games, then you already know and own fallout 4 and my review won't persuade you to buy this. If you've never tried a massive open-world sandbox game, then there's no time like the present to start playing fallout 4. It's hard to describe just how much is in this game without writing a novel that rivals War and Peace. If brevity is the soul of wit, then I'll try and be as witty has possible here. Character customization is practically infinite. There is no level cap, so there's no need to worry about what type of play style you want your character to be. Just keep leveling up and get some different perks and change your style of play from a bare-knuckled brawler to a sniper. The replay value is very high as you always have the option to play as a relatively good character or a relatively bad character. The game keeps track of quests, so even if you don't play very often there's no need to worry about forgetting where you left off or what your next objective should be. My only complaint is the music in the game. They need to add about 10,000 songs. I think it takes the average person about 20 times listening to a song before they're bored or tired of it. Trust me, you'll listen to the songs in this game way more than 20 times each. Yes, there's an option to turn the radio off in the game, but sometimes there are quests that get added by listening to the radio so there's a chance you'll miss out on those if it's not on. You won't regret this purchase. Enjoy!

    My expectations were met!

    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've 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'm loving this game, it's 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.
