  • 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]

    If you are more of a single player gamer like me, don’t let the online nature of Fallout 76 put you off… it’s eminently playable as a single player experience. If you are put off by the issues mentioned at the start then maybe steer clear (or at least wait to see if patches address your concerns), otherwise I’d say grab the Deathclaw by the horns and jump in (but maybe wait till you have powerarmour to do that.).

    Regardless of how Fallout 76 transforms and mutates in the months to come, the present version is a brave, imaginative, and rewarding exploration, but its true glory is revealed among friends.

    I don't think I've ever had a game in the test that was so difficult to judge. It doesn't grip properly, but Fallout 76 makes me feel very contradictory. On the one hand, I really enjoy the game world, the exploration and all the stories told here. But I'm also someone who can get involved with this indirect way of telling stories. I can understand that for many this doesn't work without NPCs and dialogues. But I enjoy reading the different diary entries and listening to the holobands. On the other hand, the poor technical condition of the game really annoys me a lot. The poor performance despite average graphics quality is hard to understand. You can and must expect more from a modern game in 2018.

    Fallout 76 is a bold experiment with one of gaming’s biggest and most beloved franchises. Unfortunately the experiment seems like a failure so far. Bugs and glitches are everywhere, but worse is that the core principles of design just don’t function the way they seem like they should.

    Fallout 76 is a bit of a disaster, which is a shame because there are good ideas and good bits of content here. There wasn’t a single play session where I didn’t have a lot of fun, but there also wasn’t a session where something ridiculous didn’t cause frustration. It feels like it should have been released into early access as a work in progress for the next several months, thus alleviating some of the frustration from poor performance, bugs, and balancing issues.

    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.

    Too many reviewers are never leaving the tutorial zone and posting their reviews. This game is amazing. Some of shared player mechanics haveToo many reviewers are never leaving the tutorial zone and posting their reviews. This game is amazing. Some of shared player mechanics have not even been fully explored yet by the player base. Like captureable workshops and high level crafting.

    The play style of the game is one where you quest alone and then join up with friends when you can. Some aspects of the game are only achievable in groups. Something im positive many disgruntle reviewer never even tried.

    9/10

    only feature they do need to add is push to talk for the voice chat.

    Game is not as bad as some retards are saying. It has a lot of bugs, lacks more storage, but nothing game breaking. It's actually pretty fun.Game is not as bad as some retards are saying. It has a lot of bugs, lacks more storage, but nothing game breaking. It's actually pretty fun.
    I hate that it's a console port and therefore you even have fps drops. Yet I still played since beta for over 5 days in total gametime. It's pretty great, gives you a feeling of fallout, like you're actually alone and gets me depressed almost. I would prefer playing with a friend, but it's fun still. And the difficulty? Those are kids that barely have level 20, I had power armor and found the game really easy, until I got Ultracite lvl 45 power armor and now I'm dying to some enemies.
    I think the game will get better. Hopefully more stuff will be added too, for free. Until then a 7 is a balanced grade. Considering people pay 60$ for games that you play for 10 hours max, you'd be a hypocrite to complain.

No real pvp, no MMO mechanism (no corp, only 24 player on map) a lot of bugs. Very bad game, 7 day or Empyrion make better for small price. No communications or bad one.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game doesn't feel like a fallout game. It feels less alive then the first two games made over a decade ago. It lacks any substance, character, and creativity. Bethesda has proven rhey have no respect for their consumers, as this is a clear cash grab. In game purchases, unfinished game at full price, low production effort, in all, a total pos. Bethesda got too greedy with this one. Expand
