Fallout 4: Far Harbor Reviews
Fallout 4: Far Harbor is a true expansion to the already excellent action-RPG. This DLC takes what the main game did and improves on it in many ways, while offering a fresh location full of mystery and intrigue for players to explore. If you have run out of things to do in the Commonwealth, or simply want to experience something with more variety and choice for the player, then Far Harbor will surely satisfy.
A huge new area, some interesting horror trappings, and legitimate choices between factions - its everything you could want from a Fallout expansion!
Fallout 4: Far Harbor adds a large amount of great quests and content within its gloomy but distinctive island setting. Thanks to some well-written, morally ambiguous characters, its choices are as gray as the weather, and much more interesting. Though the new companion isn’t the strongest and the supposedly ruinous radioactive fog is more annoying than threatening, all of the adventuring and new gear absolutely made it worth my while to return to Fallout 4 for Far Harbor.
For those wanting a true campaign expansion then this is the perfect DLC to pick-up for Fallout 4
Far Harbor, the 3rd installment of Fallout 4 DLC is a fresh and fun filled experience to expand an already huge game.
All of this makes Far Harbor an engaging place to visit; and thus far, I've really enjoyed my return engagement with Fallout 4.
A great setting, a good story, and more dialogue-based solutions than the base game provides.
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.
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 ends the Fallout 4 Season Pass using his new huge location to analyze deep themes already seen in the main game, above all there are many hours soaked with fog and atmosphere.

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.
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.
The best and worst of Fallout in one giant-sized new expansion, with better storytelling than the main game but even worse graphics.
Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC offers 15 hours of content that improves on the core game's storytelling, but introduces a new puzzle mechanic that may scare away the purists.
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.
Easily the best DLC entry for Fallout 4 to date, Far Harbor introduces some exciting new enemies and a tighter, more enjoyable main storyline. It also brings an air of over-familiarity and fresh performance issues that blight an otherwise exceptional expansion.
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.
Far Harbor was definitely going to be the best out of the three, but it certainly exceeded my expectations for this first tranche of DLC.
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.
If you are absolutely starving for more Fallout 4 content, Far Harbor will give you another impressively large landscape to explore and some great side content to dig into. If you were already tired of Fallout 4 and hoping the expansion would provide something unique enough to justify coming back, this isn't it.
