Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Reclamation Day, 2102. 25 years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers – chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play alone or band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Multiplayer finally comes to the epic open-world RPGs of Bethesda Game Studios.

    Exploring is still the most interesting part in Fallout 76, but your adventure tour is limited by empty open-world, and outdated graphics performance. It is more like an MMO mod of Fallout 4, rather than a brand-new work.

    Fallout 76 isn't the best Fallout ever, but it turns out to be an interesting experiment, able to grow and thrive with time, despite an unjustifiable technical aspect.

    After the first few hours of Fallout 76, you can expect a lot of the same mission types over and over again. Playing with friends is ideal, but it cannot overcome the constant repetition. Base-building and undiscovered locations serve to be the best portions of this radioactive mess.

    Fallout 76 meant to change the very concept of the series, but turned out to be a complete disaster. The game is not only boring and empty, but sometimes simply unplayable.

    Fallout 76 isn’t to be compared with other Fallouts - it’s a spin-off that wants to be something new. Unfortunately, the multiplayer sandbox it tries to be is stagnant and intensely frustrating to play.

    I dreaded every hour I had to keep playing Fallout 76 for review. As soon as the game was beginning to teeter on fun or interesting, a bug or a frustrating gameplay design element would quickly remind me that the game was otherwise.

    Great game. What I love most about it is that it plays almost identically to the Fallout series, and its almost a continuation from Fallout 4.Great game. What I love most about it is that it plays almost identically to the Fallout series, and its almost a continuation from Fallout 4.

    Not only that, you play online with other players! The best part about this is that you do not need to participate with them or don't have to worry about being player killed.

    The story is pretty interesting and deep, yet you aren't forced to listen to NPCs drag on about things for hours on end. Usually a holotape gets you on your way, which is cool if you don't want to stop the pacing. Another great feature is the C.A.M.P. You can store your items in this totally customize-able area in your stash, build a home or cabin and defend it from outside enemies. You can also open it to the players or lock your doors if you wish.

    Fallout 76 is also amazingly beautiful. For all the extra space they put into this game, I enjoy the vistas between event locations love to build my C.A.M.P. around the wilderness. Though sometimes the trips can be a little long, I think its worth it and makes the game feel a lot more realistic. There are some locations on the map that are done so well, it almost feels like you're there. The White Springs Resort (aka the Grianbrier in WV) is an absolute gem and full of fun times.

    I enjoy the crafting, though sometimes the stash gets too full and you have to unload items once and a while. Usually I opt for scrapping weapons and armor for crafting skills and extra parts.

    There are many other things I'd like to mention in Fallout 76 to praise, but I'd just urge you to play it before reading any more reviews.

    Recycled assets, an elderly engine, and a mundane plot. I found myself bored, some area's were well designed. Overall I would not recommend. IRecycled assets, an elderly engine, and a mundane plot. I found myself bored, some area's were well designed. Overall I would not recommend. I have 1200 hours in Fallout 4, and I don't think I could put 100 hours into this title. I hope Bethesda can put work into the bugs here, but I will await their next title and leave this one alone after my time with this one. Expand

I have been a long time fan of the Fallout franchise and Bethesda. They have crafted some of the most amazing gaming memories I have. But this... this mess of a game is an insult to the fans and the franchise. Its a cash grab plain and simple. They recycled near all Fallout 4 assets to be repackaged and resold under a new name. And those assets felt dated even when they came out originally. Mods are not allowed, it is insanely buggy, VATS simply doesn't work in real-time, major server issues, and predatory micro transactions. And to top it all there are no NPC's. Which means no story! The story was a huge staple of this franchise! Its just flat out boring and a huge waste of your money. Help Bethesda learn by voting with your wallets and make your self heard. I sincerely hope they will learn from this so the Fallout franchise can get a release that it truly deserves Expand

Old graphics, terrible FOV, boring game play, storyline that you can't feel for it except being an annoying task, hours of listening to holotapes that I don't actually listen to because its just that boring, expensive micro transactions that is pretty much pointless as you still need resources to craft them, immense amount of bugs.
