    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 do not 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 is by far the worst dialog system I've ever seen in my 30 years of playing RPGs. Then there are the bugs. Personally I haven'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.

    Like so many others, I had waited a long time for this game to come out. When it did, oh what a great disappointment. I will not give this any more stars than it deserves. When big companies like Bethesda create these games and release them with tons of bugs and expect us to just smile and accept it is not acceptable. I just do not understand how all of these tech and game gurus that write about these games and rank and/or rate them can give this piece of garbage such a high rating while writing about all of the bugs and disappointing game play. I have not read one blog, article or post from the "experts" that did not have a ton of bad stuff to say about this game but then rate it so high. One would think they were all getting a kickback from Bethesda for proclaiming its greatness. Don't waste your money.

    I was recommended Fallout 4 by a Best Buy sales representative. His description of the game and the whole Fallout series made me want to divulge right into the game as soon as I got home. I was a little disappointed to tell the truth. The game has free roam which I like and was the main reason i wanted to purchase the game, but it's visuals, and first person play didn't really impress me. The visuals look more cartoony like and it's hard for me to take the game seriously. I haven't played it since...Another $59 dollar down the drain.

    It's not as enjoyable as the prior two Fallout. The endings are the same regardless of the choices you make. Sure it looks really nice, but I wasn't drawn into the story and the game allows for the player to get off track with the objective set out in the beginning of the game. It might be worth a look once they release a version that includes all the DLC. Until then don't get caught up in the hype or the great advertising they did for the game.

    Ruined by Massive Loading Times

    Fallout 4 is a wonderful game, ruined by excessive loading times. I have stopped playing the game. Regrettably the fast travel feature on PS4 takes nearly as long as walking to a location "in game," the loading screen being far less exciting than the walk. I had high hopes for Fallout 4, yet I believe the game was rushed to the PS4 without proper testing. Any amount of "fast traveling" will quickly add a mentionable length of time to any mission performed.

    Play it for a whole night and got super bored of the game, actually was not great right after you get out of the sleep chamber. I played new Tomb Raider and thought it was better after playing for the first 5 mins. Save your money unless you're a big Fallout fan. Game really disappointed me, thank god for Tomb Raider which came out about the same time.

    I've heard great things about this game since it's been released, But after spending 5-6 hours with it, Fallout 4 just didn't click for me. Graphics are sub-part compared to other PS4 games available, but that isn't a deal breaker. Gameplay was a bit stiff, and I never really had much fun playing it. A lot of people love this game, not me.

    I enjoyed the game but it could've been less complicated. Maybe it's the fact that I'm not a full-time gamer and I think it could have been simplified a little. Having said that, I did enjoy the game but, like I mentioned earlier, it could've been less complicated. Maybe it's the fact that I'm not much of a full-time gamer.

    im 40 years old so it will come to a surprise to many that this was my first Fallout game, been a life long gamer and never tried one of these games. Overall i didnt like it, and im going to say thats more because of me and not because its a bad game, its just slow paced and somewhat boring

    Basically if you want a game where you can do anything, this is it. But sometimes it feels way too big, too much to do, side tracked and forget what youre even supposed to do. I returned mine after about 30 hours of gameplay. just too hyped up

    I didnt like it as much as I thought I would. Was disappointed in finding out it wasn't a co-op game. If only it were I would have loved it. You have to grind alot in this game, some people like it and some don't to an extent. It alright I guess.

    If you like a good story in your game, than this game is not for you. While it can be entertaining enough if you like going around a huge world doing things, then this game has more than enough, but do not expect a story.

    Turned out to be not my style of game. I more of a shooter person I guess. Plus the graphics in this game made me nauseated for some reason. COD or destiny I can run all day without the queasiness.

    Don't care for RP games that don't have set missions/goals. In this game you just kinda wander around finding things to do. Didn't care for it. 2 stars just cause the graphics are good.

    I started playing fallout with new vegas, and much perfer new vegas to fallout 3 and 4. Fallout 4 is very much a 3 sequel and why it's a fine game it wasn't what I wanted or expected.

    Heard lots of great reviews for this game and the series in general. Finally tried it out not what I expected, way too much to do literally and just couldn't get into it

    I mean this game was hyped up way too much. It's too big, doesn't give you much direction into what to do or how to play and just isn't that good. 30+ hours wasted of my life

    I got in the series late and maybe that's is the reason but I wasn't a huge fan. The rating isn't bc if the graphics or anything. I just didn't like the game.

    The story itself is fantastic. Would enjoy it as a movie or TV series. However as a game there were too many extended periods of feeling repetitive or slow.

    Game gets quite repetitive after a few hours. Great graphics. Got it for the girlfriend but it's being used as a coaster right now collecting dust.
