Obsidian could have easily fallen into the trap of creating a straight up Fallout clone, but the various planets in the Halcyon solar system and the types of quest available provides a good amount of variety, with excellent splashings of humour and moral dilemmas. It's not breaking new ground, but it struts its stuff very well.
I really wanted to like this game, and after the beta I was hoping there would be more to it than what they were testing. Unfortunately, there's not, and there's absolutely no way I could recommend buying this game. If you could pick it up for £10, sure, but four times that? No way.
It is possibly the best open world that you can visit, held back by a main story that's a bit too archaic. On the whole, it's still highly enjoyable, so I would still highly recommend you dig into it. You'll definitely get your money's worth.
