Reviews Summary

It's Fallout online!
Absolutely riddled with bugs and tech issues
Not enough story for a Fallout game

Summary: To say Fallout 76 has had a rough go of things would be an understatement. Praised for its ambition, but lambasted for its stability, design choices, and state of affairs at launch, this marks one of Bethesda Game Studios' lowest-rated titles ever.

The rich wasteland map of Fallout 76 is wasted on a mess of bugs, conflicting ideas, and monotony.

A beautifully crafted but ultimately repetitive world, and a disappointment when it comes to options on PC.

Bethesda's attempt at Fallout multiplayer is, like so many of the series' vaults, a failed experiment.
