Fallout 4 review

Yes I realize I am late to this, most people won't be swayed either way I stand on the game, what I say or what stance I take in terms of purchasing this game by the name of Fallout 4.  This post really isn't for the well informed about the game but rather the new flock of new gamers who have never played a fallout game, shocking I know right but the same thing happened when fallout 3 came out. A bunch of new gamers who never picked up a game jump on board of gaming and picked up their first fallout game, months  even years after fallout 3 was out and all of its DLC.

Fallout 4 for those who are entirely out of the gaming loop or exclusivily play on certain platforms, or don't play those type of games. It is a post-apotilipictic action based First person shooter with role playing game features with a heaviy base focused on level design, story, and non-cutscene driven focus gameplay with scripted events.

The game is suppose to take place in the Boston area this time and well the size of the world is massive, even going outside the pipboy map area. Oh yeah a pipboy is a wrist computer you use to navigate, set your stats, and manage your inventory.

Enough said the game has a large amount of weapons, which now you can modify into better weapons. Gone is the weapon crafting from scratch & ammo crafting for various types of ammo but just weapon modifications and armor modifcations.

Also power armor modifcations, which includes power armor with jetpacks. Power armor behaves very differently in this game, you can hold more items yes but items now weigh more and power armor can take individual piece damage and break. Similar to limb damage in past games. Power armor now requires fusion cores which deplete in use like batteries.

Regular armor is now split up into various different pieces aswell for left & right limbs and 1 chest piece a helmet and  under lining.

As for the story fallout 4 Kinda falls short massively. As soon as the game builds up to person who fights & saves 1 faction the game ends. You would think that there would be more quests for each faction but there is 2 generics repeats, then around 5 main quests for each faction.

The factions are The railroad, the institute, the minuet men, and the brotherhood of steal. The institute is a bunch of scientists trying to survive underground who kidnapped a large portion of the common wealth(name of place you are in), including your son, and replacing them with synthetic humanoids or synths for short. You have to go break into the institute to find your son(main general quest basically only one of these).

The railroad is a faction that is trying to save all the synths from the institute, and frees them with false memories, names, and identities.

The minuet men are a faction design to save the common person from dangers and protect them as a armed militia.

The brotherhood of steal are a group of people only interested in technology and getting it with no care for anyone else but that technology and will kill as many people as they can to get advancements in technology. These guys wage war on the entire common wealth.

Every ending comes up to being the same almost though in this game so have no remorse for slaughtering one group or all the other groups but one. This is one of the main reasons why it falls short of being a decent fallout title as well as the introduction to features that just make the game more hetitic. Such as maintaining settlements from raiders, supermutants, and Gunners(a faction you can't join really as far as I know).

The game just tries too hard to be high graphical, the game requires way more than it should and isn't optimized in the slightest, I had to get another 8 gigs of ram just to run the game even though it claims to recommend 8gb of ram which isn't enough, you need at least 16gb and that is on lowest settings. The graphics are not even that high the game is just really really badily optimized and pixelation and other odd things happen so often along with game crashes. Literally every 2 hours I would have to restart up fallout 4 becahse it decided to crash, and no my PC is well above minium requirements. It actually looks lower than fallout 3 in the world model polycount for objects it is the player & monster models that look high required but even then not nearly as much as bethesda poorly tries to justify.

The game is a absolute mess, I enjoyed the crap out of the gameplay but the story is lacking and so short... bugs run rampet everywhere you go, and dialog trees got dumbed down, choices matter.... not... It just doesn't feel like a fallout game really. Its ok but not good, the companions are useless as they ever have been, there are a few companion missions based off your relationship, some are difficult as hell while others are simply fill out dialog tree. A lot of Good ideas with poor execution.
