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 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.

The mad science experiments are amazing, although the rest of the DLC is a bit of a let down.

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.

Fallout 4 is the game you've been waiting for months (maybe years?) which will give you fun for weeks

The meal hasn't been perfect, but it's been very memorable. The waiter keeps coming by with the dessert cart, and I keep waving him away.

The problem with Fallout 4 is not that it doesn't live up to its hype, but that it doesn't live up to the Fallout name

It can be rough around the edges and it takes a while to gel, but once it does this is as gripping an RPG as Bethesda has ever produced. We'll handle disappointments like the lengthy loading times, poor facial animation and minor bugs because Fallout 4's world is so rich, strange and beautiful, and because the stories you can make in it are so compelling. Buy it, then dig in for the season.

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.

Fallout 4 retreads far too much old ground to really justify its existence. Even the potential withing this sprawling map is not enough to entice a player enough to toy with wonky A.I. or repeat mundane tasks endlessly.
