Fallout 4 Review, Northern Springs brings expansive icy wasteland
Award-winning creators of Fallout 3 and Skyrim, Bethesda Game Studios welcomes you to the world of Fallout 4. Winner of over 50 Game of the Year awards, including top honors in the D.I.C.E. Fallout 4 Awards is the studio’s most ambitious game and the next generation of open world games. As the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world devastated by nuclear war. Only the fate of the Domains can be rebuilt and determined. In some ways, we are sorry that Fallout 4. is not a revolutionary sequel, this is part of a review of Fallout 3 or New Vegas, especially in terms of tone, core mechanics, and overall style.
Freedom and liberty
do what you want in a vast open world with hundreds of locations, characters and missions. Whether it’s multiple factions that offer power or go it alone, all the options are yours.
Collect and build
collect, upgrade, and build thousands of items in the most advanced manufacturing system ever. The army is just armor, chemicals and food are just the beginning, and you can even build and manage entire settlements.
Super Deluxe Pixel

Violence and V.A.T.S.
Intense first or third person combat can be slowed down with the new Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System (V.A.T.S) that allows you to select your attacks and enjoy a cinematic stack.

You’ll spend at least 4 hours customizing your character, followed by at least the next 20 building your Sanctuary settlement and then the rest of the game rescuing other settlements. Once you remember that there’s more to the game than just rescuing apparently helpless settlers and you abandon what’s his name and his band of merry minutemen, that’s when the rest of the game really begins and you get an interesting story. I’ve waited awhile for this game for some time, not because I didn’t want it, but it was still a bit pricey for a 2 year old game single player game on steam. I only paid like $20 for this. I didn’t need the expansions immediately as I take a while to complete games before I delve into the expansions. I’ll buy the season pack when it goes on sale later. As I believe that single player games shouldn’t be as expensive as online games that can be played with multiple people. That’s my opinion, doesn’t hold a candle to anything else anyone had said about the company and games in general. The purchase arrived on time, and nothing was too wrong.
Oh goodness. Goodness gracious. I can’t compare it to previous games in the series not having played them, but this game…this game is…difficult to characterize accurately. Part of me is frustrated as hell because I thrive on closed-ended things. Having 15 active quests, each of which spawn more quests with possibilities for unique approaches which in turn affect relationships and future gameplay, messes with my completionism mindset.
