Back in 2015, Bethesda released a trailer for their latest project and the world almost blew up in excitement after no more than a minute. A few short months later, Fallout 4 was made available to the public and people all around the world found themselves losing hours upon hours in this open-world, 1st person/3rd person shooter. Of all the games to lose your time in, Fallout 4 is certainly one of the best options out there for fans of the post-apocalypse setting the Fallout franchise has come to be known for.

The story starts off with you and your family spending some time together, before the whole nuclear apocalypse thing goes down. Before too long, some not so nice stuff goes down and your character and their family bolts to the nearest vault, an underground location that’s designed to keep humanity alive during this trying time. After a brief introduction to the vault, everyone hops into these strange pods and end up being cryogenically frozen for a number of years, until an outsider breaks into the facility. They then unfreeze your character, their husband/wife and the child they share together, before proceeding to kill them and steal away your character’s child for an unknown reason and now it’s your job to find your child! As you delve deeper into the story, things do start to pick up and the clichés of the story quickly get outranked by the intrigue of the rest of the world around you.

When it comes to the aesthetics of the game, the visual graphics are a little bit too bright for a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but they definitely moved in the right direction. Fallout 3 had a serious lack of colour and it’s good to see Fallout 4 had the opposite idea in mind; just at times it did come off as a touch goofy considering the setting. Even with that in mind, the overall environment is stunning as per usual. Just like any good Bethesda game, if you see something interesting off in the distance, you’re going to want to explore it and check it out. As it turns out, pretty much everything in this game is interesting to look at, so it almost seems like you never run out of things to do.

Gameplay is pretty similar to Fallout 3 and New Vegas, with very little changes in the game. Pretty much, if you’ve ever player a FPS game before, you know what to expect from the game. Even though the gameplay loop is pretty simple, it doesn’t stop the gunplay from being really fun when it works. At times, though, it does feel like your shots aren’t counting, when in actual fact they should, but that can really vary from weapon to weapon; all of which can be improved as you see fit.

Overall, Fallout 4 is a really solid entry into the franchise, and while it may have its imperfections, it is definitely a solid game all the same. Visually, it looks nice and as to be expected, the environment is just as memorable as the last 2 Fallout games. Gameplay is exactly what you’d expect from this franchise by now, with few necessary changes to make. As far as Fallout titles go, you definitely can’t be steered wrong with this one!
