Fallout 4’s Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland Game Review
February 22, 2016 By Brad Stokes
It’s been a long wait for Fallout fans, but now the fifth instalment has arrived!
This game brings great action and tough challenges from start to finish, but was it worth the wait?
This game was released on November 10 2015.
The story is set in Boston in the year 2287, where your character awakens from cryo sleep from a Vault called 111 to see that their world is now a post-apocalyptic wasteland, due to a nuclear bomb which happened 210 years before.
This game is very similar to previous instalments such as Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, which involves your character going out on quests to find food and new objects to help you create new weapons etc.
During the quests/missions you will encounter creatures such as Ghouls and Death claws, they live off the radiation that the nuke caused and can be hard to defeat if in large numbers/groups.
You can take companions to follow you around during your quests such as dogs or robots, which can be useful has they can sniff out collectables or something valuable
One of my favourite aspects of the game is that you can change your characters appearance such as face, hair clothes etc.
You can also change between first and third person at any point, which I think is fair to the audience.
The Pip boy is a wristwatch that allows you to change your weapons, health, food and a number of perks which can be very handy such as toughness during fights.
Each time you unlock the perk the stronger your character will become meaning you will last much longer against bigger opponents.
The age rating for this game is 18+ which I strongly agree with because it does tend to feature a lot of gore and strong language, which would not be suitable for younger audiences.
The graphics are very clean with lots of detail which helps to give the game a more realistic feel, especially the look of ruined houses and wasteland which help to set the apocalyptic theme.
Overall I would give Fallout 4 a 7/10 rating, the reason for this is because it’s very similar to Fallout 3 as I mentioned earlier on and becomes repetitive which made me lose interest quite quickly.
However I do think it is a game worth playing especially if you’re into survival role playing games.
The game was developed by Bethesda Game Studios, available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
