    Fallout Shelter on the PC is a lightweight strategy game that takes its time to gain momentum but generates reasonable amounts of fun. On one hand it has some issues, on the other the "just one more click!" syndrome is present and finally the game looks the way it should have from the beginning. Fallout Shelter needs some polishing and isn't perfectly suited for this platform but it definitely deserves your attention.

    A nice little build-a-vault-game, great for spending a little time. But it lacks the depth to be motivating in the long term.

    Fallout Shelter is a pretty nice game for mobile devices. The same cannot be said for the PC version, troubled by a complicated installation process, a control scheme too much "mobile-oriented" and the lack of a cross-save feature. But it's free, so it may be worth a try.

    Simply put, Bethesda showed us how not to port mobile games to big platforms. Fallout Shelter formula just does not fit PC gaming. [10/2016, p.53]

    Great game, really repetitive but still really fun, the only problem is that you cant play the same save on mobile.
