  • Summary: Fallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. 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 yearsFallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. 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. Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system and forge your own path in a new and untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new and unique Fallout adventure awaits. Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. will provide much-needed shelter, supplies and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors. But beware, not everyone will be quite so neighborly. [Bethesda]

    Despite some very annoying bugs that absolutely need to be addressed, the game is both a wonderful online experience and an underrated solo adventure if you enjoy the exploration aspect of games such as No Man’s Sky.

    Though it suffers from graphical issues and bugs, as well as unsatisfying combat, Fallout 76 is fun nonetheless, and the experience is only enhanced by cooperating with other players.

    Underneath the extremely rough and laggy exterior, Fallout 76 has the makings of a great and entertaining game. To some, the damage may have already been done and the appeal may have already worn off, but with Bethesda’s level of support, the game has potential to grow into something much more than it currently is.

    Forcibly pushing players together in order to tackle the later main quests isn’t the experience fans wanted, nor is a PvP system that requires consent before it really kicks off, regardless of where you are.

    Fun to play with friends, not so much on your own. There's potential here, though a huge load of bugs manages to annoy and frustrate the player, leaving him or her with the impression that this full-priced game is far from a finished product. Shame.

    Fallout 76 could have been appealing. With its massive open-world, rewarding exploration and some interesting quests, it fails to be a good game because of too many game-design mistakes and technical issues.

    The most positive thing I can say about Fallout 76 is that a train wreck of this magnitude might finally yank Bethesda – a company that gets away with too much – back to reality. Maybe it’s finally time to update that engine. Maybe it’s not a good idea to slap the Fallout name onto a game that isn’t fit for release and expect it to go over well.

The world is rich and huge, challenging enemies, smart AI, and a sense of realistic survivability. The perk card system is a great twist on the previous perk system. The gun modification system has been greatly improved and is more rewarding. The CAMP feature is fun, creative, and relaxing. The story and quests are actually clever thought out and more indepth than what one would think at first look. And the community is friendly, helpfull, and overall what a good community should be like. Theres room for imporvements of course, but all games have that. If it isn't it right now, the game surely will be a huge success after a few updates. Defeiently a hit. Expand

    This game is great! Bugs? Yes. System quirks? Sure. A new way for an old thing? Yes, absolutely; but it IS great. Most of the gripes IThis game is great! Bugs? Yes. System quirks? Sure. A new way for an old thing? Yes, absolutely; but it IS great. Most of the gripes I have come across are the same cookie-cutter, entitled, whiny screeds one must simply expect when a new game drops these days. There's an amazing audience for hyperbolic complaint and more than a few self-appointed BDE oozin' reviewers ready to feed the pout. On its merits, and allowing for a bit of running-in, Fallout 76 is objectively a great game. Buy it, contribute to it, and enjoy it. Don't let the loud, simple opinions of the Basics discourage you.

Sure makes running around finding resources and killing monsters much more enjoyable. I like this game but it does need help. It's not horrible as everyone makes it out to be. I like playing with my buddy. Expand

This was released as a fullI am rating this game 0 because not of joining the hate train, but because this is what Fallout 76 truly deserves. This was released as a full price Bethesda title, that that means quality ( Or it used to mean quality )

    This game about 4 months after launch is still a buggy mess and the only thing working still is the Atom Store ( the micro-transaction marketplace ) I am still constantly running into bugs, crashes and a whole manor of other issues.

    The game itself has no redeeming features once you get over that 5 minute excitement of playing a Fallout game with friends the game is empty, boring and pointless name me one single quest that is fun in this game, not to mention the abysmal controls, its like the whole game suffers from input lag no doubt to the servers not being able to handle the already **** engine Fallout 76 runs on which brings me to my next point. Fans have finally had enough of Bethesda using a 12 year old engine with the same bugs present in Fallout 76 as were present in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, If Bethessda continue to use this engine for TES 6 and Starfield then they are finished, especially if they continue to implement paid mods and micro-transactions which Petey boy insists are mini DLCs when in fact they are paid mods.

    My final point is I am also marking this game down due to the people who sold us this rubbish being quiet, I have not heard a peep from Mr Sweet Little Lies Todd Howard or Petey boy regarding Fallout 76 and this is upsetting as it is a huge middle finger to the fanbase that supported them for years and looked past that typical Bethesda charm ( and by charm I mean every single one of their titles using the creation engine or some form of it releasing as one big mess of bugs which the modding community fixes for them and if your on console dont expect a fix for those bugs as Bethesda will be too lazy to do it themselves.

    I expect quality from Bethesda not this crap, therefore I award Fallout 76 with a well deserved 0/10 due to Bethesda's utter incompetence to not even get a simple Fallout 4 asset flip right.

    This game is a brilliant and broken catastrophe. It is far and I mean FAR worse than Sonic 06 on every single aspects. You must not play it!

    I am really worried about the upcoming elder scrolls
