    Slightly disappointed, set your expectations low.

    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.

    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.

    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'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.

    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.

    I can't say this is a bad game, all I can say is, it's not for me. I don't typically play these types of games, but with all the hype surrounding it, I wanted to give it a shot. I will say, I wasn't a fan of the shooting mechanics. The checkpoints are sparse (I cleared out a giant area only to be killed on my way out by a hidden turret, and sent back to before I entered the area), and having to re-do the same long section over and over again just isn't my idea of fun. I understand some people love the challenge, but that's not the kind of game I'm looking for right now. If you need an rpg fix, but are kind of an rpg noob, I'd recommend The Witcher 3.

    Glorified shooter

    Role playing has taken a significant backseat in this entry to the series. Dialogue options are largely meaningless and lead to the same conclusions. Role playing has essentially devolved into choosing whether or not to do a particular quest for a particular person/group. Combat is considerably better than Fallout 3 or New Vegas. Therefore if you're looking for a fun shooter with a little more depth than usual, this is a good buy. The role playing experience was extremely disappointing though, as a fan of New Vegas. I did not experiment with mods very much.

    If you've played Fallout 3 then you've played this one. They added a bunch of new stuff in but nothing to justify and 8 year gap since the last one. Ubisoft puts out a new Assassin's Creed every year and some of them have had more advancements than Fallout has in 8 years. The game uses a very outdated engine and it shows. Not to mention that the gameplay, characters, and animations are absolutely terrible by 2015/2016 standards. The world building is great and there is plenty of content but it gets pretty repetitive and it's not that fun after a while.

    The Fallout series is long running and has numerous fans. The newest game in the series doesn't deviate much from the formula set in Fallout 3. Several of the RPG elements have been redone and the gunplay is the best it's been, but this is still a game for fans of the series. The changes won't change your mind about it, if you were not a fan of Fallout 3 or New Vegas, you won't be a fan of Fallout 4. More of the same is the best definition of this game. Whether or not that is a bad thing depends on how much you liked Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

    An unfinished game doesn't deserve any good reviews! I am enjoying it, however I had some really annoying bugs. I had to load older safe files to pass the bugs. The graphics are good, better than expected for the joke of a console. The game is basically just Fallout 3 with better graphics and worse bugs. This gen sucks, I hope many of you return Fallout 4 and your garbage PS4. STOP buying garbage consoles and games, it's the only way these video game companies will give us something better to play.

    I'm not a gamer but I decided to purchase this game since people around me said this is a must buy game. I've never played the previous Fallout games except on my mobile phone, Fallout Shelter. After playing this game for a bit, I've noticed that the game/story is massive which will take a long time to complete. I have a two year old daughter which takes a lot of my free time away from me so I just do not have time to play this game. However, graphics are good and loading time isn't bad at all.

    For those that love this series, especially the last game, you will enjoy many similarities. You get the ability to customize your character, VATS, power up as you choose and explore the enormous world. For me, it just didn't captivate me like the last one did. Maybe it's because they throw you into action a bit too early before you can build your character up. I don't like the armor suit being limited to fuel and constant need to fast travel back and forth either. A nuisance and waste of time.

    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.

    Not Into The Hype

    So I got this because it is really popular and anticipated.. Maybe I am just a multiplayer gamer at heart but this one didnt really grip me. I think its pretty cool for a relaxing game to kick back and play, but that really isnt my style. It is a cool story, and the graphics are decent for how big the world is.. but the loading takes a while and I just kind of fizzled on it to be honest.

    I have tried playing it multiple times but I just can't get into it. Maybe it's because I've never played a Fallout game before, but it is definitely more difficult to ease into the game when you are given so many options and things to do at the very beginning. I think I like more direction in my video games rather than what seems like an RPG sometimes

    I was excited for the new version of fallout since I enjoyed the previous versions. However, I felt the mechanics felt a bit dated (with virtually no improvement since the last one in the series). Inventory management is cumbersome and makes me want to pull my hair out. After completing about 25% of the game, I gave up and never picked it up again.

    Fallout 4 isn't horrible or even bad by any means but it's still too confined to feeling like a PC game despite being on consoles and by that I mean, the controls and being suited to be played in first person as opposed to third person. Fans of the franchise will most likely love it while everyone else will be 50/50. Personally, the game just wasn't for me.

    Waited for this game to come out. Initial play was great, exactly like I was expecting. Then the game quests curtailed and it was either play for one side or the other. Can't have one side say they are for mankind but we need to go kill these humans. Disappointing game turn so I loaded a different game to play. I would recommend this game with a pre-warning.

    I get motion sickness from specific games. I really wanted to enjoy this game but once leaving the shelter and exploring outside, I started to get nauseous from the game. I can no longer play it, which is a shame. I recommend this game, but if you tend to get motion sickness from games that are affected by field of vision, and head bobbing, I'd avoid it.

    To be honest with you when i got this game with the purchase of my playstation 4 I used best buy's game trade in because i wanted a gift card toward the tv i wanted to purchase so i never played the game. However nationally the critics think this game is wonderful and i haven't heard negative feedback from other players so it sounds like its a good risk
