It’s been about a week since the first part of our Fallout 76 review was released and countless hours have been sunk into the game since. I’ve loved, lost and rejoiced my way across Appalachia and still find m […]
This is a well rounded, fair review. It’s generally good, but there are trade offs now that it’s multiplayer. A lot of new assets mixed with a lot of old. The crafting is good, but you’re not given enough inventory space. There are stories, but they aren’t told in ways that we’ve previously enjoyed.
It’s not a perfect game, but I think other reviews are holding Bethesda to a higher because of their past success. If a new studio came out with this game, I bet it would be better received.
I also think the we (gamers) complain a lot that larger studios play it safe too often, but look what happens when one goes slightly out of its wheel house. We complain that it’s not the same game they’ve made in the past.
Re: the holding Bethesda to a higher standard because of the past success – I’d say, it’s probably their past buggy messes that mean they’re not getting a pass this time. Enough public called them out on Skyrim and Fallout 4 that I think press feel like they have to take them to task. Which is a shame, because it’s NOT worth the really low scores it’s seeing. I think both Robert and Dame (over at MMORPG.com) hit it well. FO76 reminds me of ESO – a game rushed too soon that if treated right will become a great lasting world to play it for years to come. But it wasn’t ready for launch.
