Fallout 4: Far Harbor Reviews
Far Harbor should have be an easy sell to those who have picked the Commonwealth clean, but something terrible lurks within the fog. Serious framerate issues on PS4 make the expansion stink like the rot of a mutated fishman, killing any sense of adventure in what is otherwise an intruiging add-on. If the problem's patched, feel free to add a few points to this review's score – but until then, you should steer your ship clear of Far Harbor's foreboding coast.
Far Harbor is Bethesda doing what they do well, extending the longevity of the product and prolonging the players want and need to explore more and more. I finished most of Far Harbor, but it’ll be weeks, if not months before I can say I’ve seen everything. The creepy atmosphere, new designs for everything from weapons to characters and buildings really make this DLC feel different. While there’s a hiccup in the action with the hacking/data theft section, it’s not a dealbreaker.
Thanks to a wealth of gameplay and an interesting setting, Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC manages to succeed, despite suffering from some very questionable design decisions related to one awful quest. It is, however, a bit costly at $25.00.
Fallout 4’s Far Harbor DLC is a great expansion of everything that made the game so good in the first place. If you wanted more, then you’ll be beyond pleased.
It is a deep experience, entrenched in mystery, and doused in activities and hunts for fans to get into. Bethesda wasn’t lying when they said they had something big in store, and this visit to a faraway land shows that the team went above and beyond.
If you liked Fallout 4, you owe it to yourself to pick up Far Harbor because you will probably like it more. If you didn't love the direction the series has been taking, perhaps Far Harbor will right some of those wrongs. Overall, this expansion does what a good expansion should do: provide more of what made the original good and continue or expand the story in a satisfying way. Far Harbor exceeds that by giving us a lot of content and providing a world and story that is more interesting than what came before it, as well as bringing back series' staples that some felt were missing from the original.
Far Harbor bears so many of the same problems of Fallout 4 base game that more often than not, I was having a bad time.
While saying that Far Harbor is Fallout 4‘s best piece of add-on content to date isn’t the highest piece of praise in the world, it’s an absolute must-download for anyone who enjoyed the sprawling post-apocalyptic role-playing game.
Far Harbor doesn't reinvent the wheel but it does add some compelling gameplay and a good story to Fallout 4. Take the trip up north - you may find a reason or two to hang around.
Reclaims the storytelling magic from past installments while introducing enough new and interesting toys and quests to keep players going for many hours. There are some visual hiccups and the companion is somewhat underwhelming, but these don't detract from the experience. Worthy of the term "expansion" and will take a place among Bethesda's best DLC offerings.
At nearly 20 hours worth of quests to undertake and wildlands to explore, that same tedium threatens to kick in, but there’s enough pathos in its stories and weirdness in its sights—one of the first things I did was talk my way into the bed of an old-world Hollywood starlet who’d shoved her brain into a robot body that looked like a trashcan on tank treads—to easily sustain that runtime.
Like the base game, Fallout 4: Far Harbor excels past its issues with bugs and the crafting system with dynamic characters, wonderful world design, and genuine consequences and moral quandaries for players to navigate. A welcome righting of the ship for Fallout 4's DLC, and a bright indication of where Bethesda is going from here.
A huge new area, some interesting horror trappings, and legitimate choices between factions - its everything you could want from a Fallout expansion!
Far Harbor, the 3rd installment of Fallout 4 DLC is a fresh and fun filled experience to expand an already huge game.
Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC really shows how good Fallout can get
Far Harbor is one of the best DLC expansions in the series. There are plenty of new people to meet, locations to discover, and quests to complete. It is perfect for the type of person that wants a bit of a shake-up to their normal Fallout 4 experience, or just wants more land to explore.
In terms of design, art, and just plain content, 'Far Harbor' is some of the best DLC in Bethesda’s stable. The island and its marine inhabitants gobbled up many hours, and even now I still have much left to explore. I wish the engine could struggle along a bit better, but the Commonwealth is now firmly in my rearview mirror as I investigate every nook and cranny on this godforsaken island.
definitely lived up to the standards set by Bethesda and their post-apocalyptic saga; Far Harbor adds another shade to the spectrum of colour that is painted across Fallout's history. With excellent gameplay and atmospheric effects, tied together in a bundle of deeply intricate lore, fans of the series should not be disappointed.
For those wanting a true campaign expansion then this is the perfect DLC to pick-up for Fallout 4
The main storyline for this DLC is a little short, but it takes many turns you never see coming! It’s up to you; will you save The Island from the horrors of the Fog, or lead them all to their demented demise?
