Fallout 4 Automatron liefert eine erste solide DLC Erweiterung für Fallout 4, mit kleinen Schwächen. Fans von Materialien sammeln und Roboter bauen können hier ohne Bedenken zugreifen. Der Story-Part des DLC’s bietet gute 2 Stunden an Material, die aber nicht an die Qualität des Hauptspiels herankommen und wenig Abwechslung bieten. Als Gesamtpaket ist der DLC aber wirklich amüsant gelöst worden und bietet in Sachen Roboter bauen einiges an Variationen, die den Preis von 9,99€ absolut gerechtfertigt machen.

It could be my own fault for not preparing well enough, or maybe I’m an awful player, but I would not recommend – at all – playing through Automatron at level 15.

Despite the shortened quests found in Automatron, I can still recommend this DLC without hesitation to anyone who wants more Fallout 4 (or anyone who felt the base game was a little lacking and needed something else to spice up the formula).

'Automatron' is on the smaller side of DLC, but still a bright beginning for what is hopefully an outstanding season of 'Fallout' DLC. The quick and somewhat forgettable mission material is buoyed by strong crafting elements and a more player-oriented approach to companions. I would recommend it even at its separate price point.

It isn't that Fallout 4: Automatron is short. If this was two/three very engaging hours, instead of 30-45 very good minutes following a thin first two thirds, it would be a different story. Those willing to create a new character will gain extra fulfillment, and the robot creation system is good fun, but Automatron feels like a scrap metal junkbot instead of a stand-alone, well-oiled machine.

A bunch of new items and weapons, with a new companion and a huge amount of exploring to be done, there’s little reason Automatron shouldn’t be on your radar.

Automatron doesn't reinvent Fallout 4, but it adds a great, fun feature that fits right in. The main quest has stellar writing, if falling a little short on length, but the ability to create an army of deeply customisable robots is something that permeates the rest of the game.

Fallout 4: Automatron is a fun, yet brief, addition to the game. The story is enjoyable enough and has some great moments, while the extra features, such as the companion crafting and the new encampment buildables make for enjoyable additions to the existing world. Sadly, though, for what the DLC consists of, there just isn't enough of the content to really justify the cost.

Overall Fallout 4 is off to a good start with its DLC offerings as Automatron is a solid piece of DLC that all Fallout fans should enjoy. The robot customization features are fantastic, and is easily the highlight of Automatron. The story is also fun to playthrough, and for the price, it offers a solid amount of gameplay. If this is just a start to the DLC being offered for Fallout 4 then we are in for a treat with the upcoming DLC's

For now it’s by no means a justification for the £40 season pass, but Automatron is a promising first step that should go some way to help with the bad taste Hearthfire left in some people’s mouths. While brief it’s certainly enjoyable, and the two new lairs to explore are probably worth the price of entry alone. Just be warned you’ll see all there is to see in a couple of evening’s entertainment, but it's a enjoyable enough way to keep Fallout 4 fresh until the meatier Far Harbor arrives.
