Game Review: Fallout 4 – Once more into the wasteland
While there’s a lot of missed potential compared to previous games, Fallout 4 still has all the trappings of a good Fallout game. Perhaps updates or mods can smooth out some of the creases, but in its current state it’s difficult to recommend buying Fallout 4 over saving a lot of money and buying Fallout: New Vegas’ Game of the Year edition. Obsidian exhibited considerable skill at creating an atmospheric Fallout title with plenty of character. Now that Fallout 4 is out, we can only hope Bethesda lets Obsidian have another crack at the franchise. I enjoyed my time with Fallout 4, but I can’t help but feel I could’ve enjoyed it a lot more.
Fallout 4 was reviewd on PC and PlayStation 4. It is also available on Xbox One.
