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.
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.
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.
Far Harbor takes Fallout 4 to the blustering coast of Maine with mixed results.
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?
The radioactive fog gives Far Harbor a different feel from the Commonwealth. The mood is too sinister to just call it gloomy. While the island is infested with new mutants, there is no need for one to hide in every dark shadow when the fog will slowly poison you to death.
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.
The best and worst of Fallout in one giant-sized new expansion, with better storytelling than the main game but even worse graphics.
For those wanting a true campaign expansion then this is the perfect DLC to pick-up for Fallout 4
Far Harbor is a good looking, but short story DLC for Fallout 4. It brings us a few mediocre panting schemes and much more in terms of vastly superior weapons and armour options, like Marine Armour or Atom's Judgement.

The reality is, while Far Harbor itself is fantastic, Bethesda has once again lived up to its old name and released some content with major bugs and issues.
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.
Massive new DLC pack delivers a great new map filled with fresh quests, plus the same old bugs and inventory management problems
This is the best the Season Pass has to offer, and Bethesda seemingly saved it for last. If you’re gonna get the Season Pass, know that you’ll want and will spend most of your time in Far Harbor, because it is a great, lengthy story full of intrigue and mystery that fits perfectly into Fallout 4. This place is far away from metropolitan areas and this add-on benefits greatly from it.
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.
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.
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 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.
