What can I say? Fallout 4 is the game everyone should play, because there is something interesting in it for everyone to find.

Fallout 4 is an excellent game and very good sequel to the series that's definitely worth buying. But the Fallout franchise is both a cult and a legend and the players expect perfection from its every new iteration. And we didn't get that.

Combine that with the level of exploration, and you have something you're going to be playing for a long time. The devil is in the detail, and as soon as you boot up the game, you can clearly see the outstanding level of detail everywhere you look. I went into the game knowing almost exactly what to expect and that's what I got, plus some nice surprises. There are plenty of bugs that you can run into but from my own personal experience, they are bearable enough to not mind them too much. Think of this game as an upgrade to the Fallout series, rather than an evolution, and you'll find almost nothing wrong with it. Fallout 4 is an amazing open-world experience that every gamer needs to experience. It delivers on everything it promised and just a bit more.
Fallout 4 represents a huge leap forward from Fallout 3 in terms of visuals and combat, but it somehow delivers an even worse story, and the reduced role-playing mechanics mean that a Fallout game has never been this shallow. Bethesda Studios Games needs to completely revise how it approaches stories in its games or Fallout 5 won't be worth playing.
Fallout 4 schafft mit den neuen Action Elementen und dem Build-Modus neue Wege für die Serie, vernachlässigt aber einige Bereiche, die die Serie eigentlich so groß gemacht haben. Action Fans und Neueinsteiger in die Fallout Reihe werden auf jeden Fall ihren Spaß haben. Fallout Veteranen wird es zwar etwas an Vielfalt in den Dialog-Optionen und dem Skill-System fehlen, aber wir würden euch den Titel trotzdem ans Herz legen.

I'd be lying if I said that there wasn't anything left for me to do within the game, and I'm sure that statement will stand for quite awhile as well. A good game and an even better experience.
There are performance issues that come into question, and certain parts of the game that will no doubt be hazardous, especially when it comes to newbies. But Fallout 4 is still a game that shouldn't be ignored, just because it's so damn big and explorable.
The main storyline of this game is excellent. Lots of twists, hard decisions, and factions to choose from. As with previous Fallout games there are tons upon tons of side missions to complete.
Finally Fallout 4 is here, in its new Boston location with huge mission and customisation variety means one thing, say goodbye to your real-world life fellow Vault Dweller!
If one approaches Fallout 4 expecting not an RPG but a "survival simulator" where the core mechanic is to salvage practically any and everything, defend one's loot with near-FPS style gunplay, and participate in pithy character interactions, then the game delivers. For those looking for a game with memorable character development and interactions, meaningful plot devices, and wondrous discoveries, then Fallout 4 disappoints in what matters.
