Fallout 76 Review Summary

WeakCritic Consensus

It's Fallout online!

Absolutely riddled with bugs and tech issues

Not enough story for a Fallout game

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.

Critic Reviews for Fallout 76

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

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

In 2024, Fallout 76 finally captures a lot of the post-nuclear experience I love. It trades roleplaying decision-making for multiplayer shooter antics, but it still needs more endgame content and a fair inventory solution.

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

Fallout 76 attempts to take the series into the world of always online multiplayer, but it may have left too much of the original franchise trademarks behind.

A disastrous failure whose technical shortcomings may one day be fixed but whose design failings, and obliviousness to its own potential, suggests a game that is irrevocably broken.

Fallout 76 has glimmers of the trademark series' sci-fi splendour, but they're few and far between.
