The graphics won't blow you away, the side quests and scale of the game will. The main story of what I've played is great and everything you do just seems to have been really thought out. I'm really addicted to Fallout 4 and a fan of this genre of game for the same price as every other game you get hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay, I love it and for me it scores 10/10, I mean who doesn't like watching a sniper round in slow motion zip across the battlefield and explode someone's head into little tiny bits? or pick pocketing someone for all there goods and as a present leave behind a live grenade?

Fallout 4 may very well have superseded 3 as my favorite entry into the series. With the huge map and absolutely insane amount of things to do from exploration to sidequests, I will still be sinking many dozens of hours into this game post-review. For those that worry: don’t, because war, war never changes.

The world, exploration, crafting, atmosphere, and story of Fallout 4 are all key parts of this hugely successful sandbox role-playing game. Great new reasons to obsessively gather and hoard relics of happier times, strong companions, and sympathetic villains driving tough decisions make it an adventure I’ll definitely replay and revisit. Even the technical shakiness that crops up here and there can’t even begin to slow down its momentum.

When you put the controller down, you think about the friend you betrayed to benefit another, the shifting tide of an incredible battle, or the moment you opened a drawer and found someone's discarded effects, making you wonder how they felt before the bombs fell. In moments like these, Fallout 4 can be an intoxicating experience. You're often forced to sacrifice something--a relationship, a lucrative opportunity, or your health--to make gains elsewhere. And the deeper down the rabbit hole you go, the more you wonder: what if I chose a different path? You second guess yourself, not just because you had other options, but because you aren't sure if you did the right thing. The fact that your decisions stick with you after walking away from the game is a testament to the great storytelling on hand. Fallout 4 is an argument for substance over style, and an excellent addition to the revered open-world series.

Fallout 4 lässt mich versinken und versacken, bis mich die Müdigkeit ins Bett zwingt. Die Sogwirkung dieser Endzeit ist fast schon unheimlich. Und das, obwohl es klare Defizite gibt: Von der schwachen KI über ärgerliche Bugs bis hin zur steifen Mimik sowie Steuerungstücken. Aber dieses Rollenspiel zieht mich gnadenlos in seine apokalyptische Welt, weil ich ständig neue Quests, interessante Charaktere und Orte kennenlerne. Bethesda inszeniert eine nahezu idyllisch anmutende Monumentalität der Zerstörung, baut dabei viel Geschichte und Folklore aus Neuengland ein und versteckt hinter jedem Block in Boston quasi einen Dungeon, so dass man über Wochen zu tun hat.

Im Endeffekt ist Fallout 4 nämlich nur ein fantastischer Open-World-Shooter – aber kein echtes Rollenspiel mehr. Das liegt am demontierten Dialogsystem ohne Fähigkeiten-Einfluss, an den oftmals nur ganz netten, aber selten erinnerungswürdigen Nebenaufträgen, an dem allgemeinen Mangel an Entscheidungsfreiheit in der Story. Wo sind die Alternativen beim Vorgehen, wo die diplomatischen Konfliktlösungen, wo die Möglichkeit, tatsächlich eine ganz spezielle Rolle zu spielen? Stattdessen ist Ballern pur angesagt – das ist irre unterhaltsam, keine Frage, aber nach den vielen Jahren des Wartens hatte ich mir irgendwie mehr von Fallout 4 versprochen.

As a whole, though, it's a loving production. It's filled with care and attention to detail—like the expanded set of radio stations, or the way flash radiation storms bathe the world in a sickly, ominous green hue. It's a pleasure to pick through the world, to discover new sights, and to pick through the perks and customisation option to conceive the perfect character build, however bizarre. In short, many of Fallout 4's problems, like every Bethesda RPG before it, are a consequence of what makes them unforgettable. That might not be the neatest conclusion, but it explains why, 50 hours in, I'm still having fun. It also explains why, now that I've finished this review, I'm going to play it for many hours more.

GameStar (Germany) (Nov 09, 2015)
Wie dem auch sei: Fallout 4 wirkt, als wäre Bethesda einen großen Schritt nur halb gegangen. Dabei rede ich nicht mal über die typische Masse an Bedienungsmängeln. Die verzeiht man Bethesda seit Jahren, weil gut erzählte Geschichten, abwechslungsreiche Missionen und vor allem eine konkurrenzlos komplex simulierte Welt sie mehr als aufwiegen. Aber genau da erreicht das Spiel nur selten das nötige Niveau. Die Erzählung ist solide aber meist nicht weiter bemerkenswert, die durchaus vorhandenen Highlights dünn gesät. Im Missionsdesign lässt sich Bethesda sogar zu einer Flut ewig gleicher Wegwerf-Quests hinreißen, bei denen selbst Ubisoft verschämt kichern müsste. (...) Das Fundament der Reihe ist atombombensicher, die verbesserte Kampfmechanik ist brachial und befriedigend und das Erforschen der Spielwelt motiviert enorm durch die Fülle an Entdeckungen die man abseits der vorgefertigten Questwege machen kann. Es ist ein gutes, atmosphärisches Spiel. Aber es ist eine Enttäuschung.

Sans surprise(s), Fallout 4 s'avère être bien plus proche de Fallout 3 que des deux premiers épisodes de la série. On pourrait même lui reprocher de n'être pas assez innovant par rapport au troisième volet, dont on retrouve toutes les qualités et tous les défauts ici. Les vieux de la vieille trouveront donc matière à ronchonner, tandis que les adeptes de la formule Bethesda seront aux anges. Dans les deux cas, tous devraient pester contre la présence de bugs en grand nombre et apprécier les rares innovations, comme le système de crafting ou l'armure assistée munie d'un jetpack. Malgré ces écueils qu'il faut tout de même souligner, Fallout 4 fait partie de ces jeux qui ont cette force en eux capables de nous hypnotiser dans leur monde, grâce notamment à son ambiance unique, cette sensation de liberté totale, sa qualité d'écriture et sa durée de vie phénoménale. Bref, un jeu à ne rater sous aucun prétexte si vous accrochez à l'univers et aux RPG occidentaux.

Game Watcher (Nov 09, 2015)
Fallout 4 is a superb game, with a huge and compelling game-world to explore, entertaining combat, and many quests that’ll keep gamers hooked for over a hundred hours of single-player-only fun. Yes the story is literally forgotten the moment you leave it (what son?), but other than that everything great about Fallout 3 is back in the sequel… which is both a blessing and a curse. It really does feel like Fallout 3 with slightly nicer graphics and a few mods (like “homebase customization”) thrown in, and while Fallout 4 has everything that made the last game great it has all the weaknesses too, like a terrible inventory menu, stiff character models, interior locations requiring loading screens, and more. Fallout 4 is an amazing game that I doubt anyone will be disappointed by, but it’s not unique. And I still prefer New Vegas.

Fallout 4 adds a lot of features (item crafting, unique weapons and settlement building) but comes at the cost of the role playing features. This ensures accessibility to a wider audience but will turn away some of the more hardcore role players among us.

I suspect you could blindfold most players, drop them into some random Fallout scene, and they would be unable to tell if they were playing 3 or 4. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. To some extent criticizing Fallout 4 in this way is like criticizing Skyrim for being a lot like Oblivion. Still, unfair though it may be, people who were hoping for some vast re-imaging, some electric new element that was going to make them fall in love with Fallout all over again, they’re going to be disappointed. If you had enough of Fallout between 3 and New Vegas, Fallout 4 is like signing up for more of that. However, if you, like me, haven’t given a lot of thought or playtime to Fallout since NV, and were kind of thinking “What the heck, I’ll give it a go again,” you’re in for a treat. And of course for the Fallout fanatics, the wasteland (this time set in and around Boston) offers an environment chock full of new adventure.

Giant Bomb (Nov 10, 2015)
Fallout 4 may feel overly familiar to some, but there are plenty of places to go, people to see, and mutants to shoot, and most of those things are still exciting to visit, look at, and murder (though not necessarily in that order).

Raisonnable, accessible. Voilà des termes qui caractérisent Fallout 4 et qui sont autant d'adjectifs que les fans de la licence culte à bien des égards n'accepteront pas facilement. Oubliez le Fallout corrosif, acide, à la liberté roleplay énorme vous permettant autant de jouer une ordure qu'un saint. Dans sa volonté d'ouvrir à tous la prestigieuse saga, Bethesda a édulcoré son propos, rendant Fallout plus proche d'un Skyrim que d'une franchise purement post-apo, avec ce qu'elle contient de cynisme et d'humour noir. Toutefois, il serait criminel de sanctionner un jeu d'une telle richesse, qui propose au bas mot plus de 100 heures de jeu et qui s'autorise des combats dynamiques, un système de craft complet et amusant, le tout auréolé d'une direction artistique de haute volée. Un très bon RPG, un univers formidable, un Fallout en demi-teinte.

Darkstation (Nov 09, 2015)
I can tell you, with a certainty, that while its most ardent critics will echo this argument as loudly as they can, it won’t make a lick of difference to the noise made by the people who love this game. Fallout 4 is a good game, an absolutely solid work horse of a title that will, if you let it, carry you away for hours at a time to explore its depths. At a time when titles seem to be losing content, Fallout 4 has more then you can possibly consume all at once, and its host of options mean that when you come back for a second, third, or ninth pass, the experience can actually, honestly, be something different. That’s not something you can say about a lot of games, and in that regard, Fallout 4 is truly in a class by itself.

После прохождения Fallout 4 остаются смешанные чувства. Игра вроде бы понравилась, а вроде и остался неприятный осадок. Может из-за убитой жены? Это старомодная и местами нелепая игра, которой даже до Fallout: New Vegas далековато. Да, сделан очередной интересный мир, который полон жизни, но он также может разочаровать того, кто надеялся на что-то невероятное. Любителя серии Fallout сразу убьёт две детали игры. Первое – ролевая часть, где в диалогах игроков испугают постоянные варианты реплик: «Да?/Нет/Сарказм». Второе – консольная ориентация. Неприятно признавать, но игра катится от уникальной глубокой ролевой игры к ограниченному шутеру. Из-за консольной ориентации «пкшники» сильно разочарованы. Это убогое консольное меню, система диалогов, заточенная под консоль – в общем, кривой порт. Если же взглянуть на игру не глазами фаната, тогда игра привлечёт своей Пустошью, системой «аля Sims 4» и крафтом. Но, лично я без понятия, как такая игра будет претендовать на игру года.

Computer Games France (Jan 06, 2016)
Avec Fallout 4, Bethesda a une nouvelle fois frappé fort dans le cœur des joueurs. Les nouveaux apprécieront le monde ouvert, les larges possibilités et l’ambiance réussie tandis que les habitués pourront rager de la casualisation du jeu, où le charisme ne sert à rien et qui voit son humour noir quasiment disparu. Impossible de jouer clairement au méchant, le jeu ne le permet pas. Très bon en apparence, plus raté dans le fond, clairement moins mémorable que New Vegas et loin derrière les deux premiers volets.

Quarter to Three (Nov 19, 2015)
Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, welcome you to the world of Fallout 4 -- their most ambitious game ever, and the next generation of open-world gaming. Never mind that it's got its fair share of pointless filler and design fumbles.

Mimo wad, wielu bugów i miałkiej fabuły, a także licznych błędów deweloperskich i faktu, że to po prostu wydmuszka bez klimatu, to gra się naprawdę przyjemnie. Jako fan franczyzy nie mogę powiedzieć, że to dobry Fallout. Nie ma co ukrywać, nie jest, ale ma tę magiczną moc, dzięki której przyjemnie wraca się do niej wielokrotnie, żeby zwiedzić kilka lokacji i ulepszyć jeszcze swój pancerz i „pukawkę”.
