    Fallout Shelter is a fun and entertaining game that comes to Xbox One with content full of variety, as the mobile version. It can be downloaded completely free and has Play Anywhere functionality. It is a must have for those who like this kind of game even though the control is less intuitive and it is harder to use than a touch screen.

    Fallout Shelter is a game that shows its mobile roots quite strongly. The graphics, although simple, are in the signature Fallout style that oozes charm and get the job done effectively. The sight of two dwellers, both in nightwear to maximise their Charisma, doing the dance of love and then running off to the bedroom is enough to bring a smile to most peoples faces.

Fun at first, but could've been so much more. Expand

    The main problem with Fallout Shelter is that it is a PAY TO PLAY game. Initially I had a great time setting up my vault and being rewardedThe main problem with Fallout Shelter is that it is a PAY TO PLAY game. Initially I had a great time setting up my vault and being rewarded for doing the things you need to do to have a happy and thriving vault. After a few days though I started to realize that the game is set up to DESTROY all your hard work, and there is nothing you can do about it.

    While in your vault there is no way to upgrade the door enough to stop the bad guys from getting in....and trust me, they are going to get in your vault. You will have to spend at least 20 hours of game play just go get weapons strong enough to defend your vault without burning through a TON of stimpacks (I've used up to 30 before in a single attack on my vault). It takes roughly 20 minutes for the average player to get those stimpack back. Are we having fun yet.

    The rewards for doing quests can be wonderful as well, but if you average it out you are going to spend just as much Nuka Colas getting to your destination then you will ever be able to bring back to your vault. What is the point of it, except to get people to spend real $$$.

    Now that you have reached level 30-50 with your dwellers you now will be spending 30-40 stimpacks per mission if you want to complete them. YEAH, you read that right. I have level 50 characters that STILL DIE like they are level 30, and they have MAXED SPECIAL stats. Doesn't matter though, even with 30+ stimpacks.

    Finally the radscorpion attacks on you vault is so overpowered that I can have max resources with 6 dwellers shooting the beast with 15 damage (3x stronger than a mid-level weapons) and he isn't going to die for 3 minutes. Doesn't matter how hard you hit the guy, it is a timed event to SUCK away your resources and to KILL your dwellers.

    It feels like the game is set up to make you lose, and has gotten less and less fun as I play it. I do not recommend this *free* game and for this my opinion of Bethesda has diminished.

    Le free to pay pour smartphones arrive sur Xbox One, une façon pour Bethesda d'élargir son audience ainsi que son audience elle-même, car onLe free to pay pour smartphones arrive sur Xbox One, une façon pour Bethesda d'élargir son audience ainsi que son audience elle-même, car on le sait, le free to pay est gratuit mais propose une mégachiée de microtransactions afin d'épargner au "joueur" le farming et le grind que réclame ce genre de produit à gogos.

    Il est clair que les mécaniques de jeu y sont simples et tout en leur sein est propice à limer le bousin jusqu'à l'intox, à moins de s'aider avec quelques bidules à 4,99 euros pour "bien démarrer" ou d'opter pour le nec plus ultra, le gigapack à 99 euros et 99 centimes (!!) (sic !!). Bref, il y a là tout un choix pour le mouton désireux de se faire tondre et plus si affinités.

    La réalisation en 16 couleurs est typique des jeux indés à deux balles -il s'agit à l'origine d'un jeu smartphone après tout- et voir une telle indigence -même s'il y a en vérité bien pire sur la scène "indé"- à l'écran nous afflige et nous désole grandement.

    Bien sûr, certains limeurs ou mineurs de jeux "gratuits" et autres adeptes des infâmes MMO "gratuits" pourront éventuellement y trouver leur compte, y compris des "joueurs" des Diablol ou Overtache (bien que ces derniers soient directum payants) mais je crains qu'ils ne soient déjà trop occupés sur leurs étrons respectifs.

    Tout cela est un peu consternant de la part de Bethesda, éditeur que j'estime habituellement pour ma part, et qui me déçoit singulièrement ici.
