Bethesda Game Studios
Fallout 4 is one of the coolest open world games out there and one that continues to impress with the great value and attention to detail. It’s nice that you have both third person and first person gameplay, and you will enjoy just how much dialogue they have here. There are 111,000 lines of dialogue, so there’s definitely a lot of talking and quest lines for you to explore.
When it comes to the story we liked that they are not rushing towards any conclusion. There are some twists and turns so you can expect some changes and challenges as you go along. But the gameplay on its own is very creative and they are always pushing the boundaries to bring in something new and exciting all the time. That being said, the primary focus is on figuring out what happened, what led the world to such a demise and what you can do in order to survive in this region.
You will encounter some great NPCs, which are actually a pleasure to explore and interact with regardless of the situation. The ability to create your own base really encourages you to stay in a single place, but you can also explore and just find a way for you to survive without having to worry about your environment, that’s for sure.
You still have access to the VATS system and you actually use the mobile version of the Pip Boy for your phone if you want. When it comes to the combat itself, we found this title to be very intense and also quite challenging and creative at the same time. This game does take a bit of time to get used to, but it will get better and better and you will enjoy it all the same, just try to consider that and you will be fine.
Even if the game is super challenging, there are some creative things to consider here and the gameplay on its own can be second to none regardless of the situation. You can also travel with a companion, but the interesting thing is that companions can interact with the environment on your behalf, so if you want to complete menial tasks without actually doing anything you can let the companion handle it.
Then there’s also the perk system. There are 275 perks in this game and being able to unlock so much stuff is quite interesting and exciting at the same time. The game doesn’t come with a level cap, and you can play even after the story ends. So it’s a very cool and fun time for you and it will only get even better as you go along.
As a whole, Fallout 4 is a great package. It did have some bugs and similar issues, but it’s expected considering the huge size of the world and the content in there. This is a very creative, fun game and it does bring in tons of content and cool gameplay. If you are passionate about exploring various cool worlds, Fallout 4 is definitely here for you and you should play it!
