-For the first time in a Bethesda game you can create a Skinny, Muscular, or Fat character.
-The animations are really slick, the best I've seen from Bethesda so far.
-The gunplay feels nice and tight, and you now have the option to melee attack with firearms.
-There's tons of crafting in the game from cooking to chemistry to upgrading gear to building.
-Different armor is available for each limb, it's not just bodysuits like in Fallout 3.
-The perk chart is well done and perks have requirements before they can be levelled up.… Expand
The karma is pretty much still in place just on an individual level instead of someone across the map hating you because you pickpocketed someone they don' t even know. The crafting system is nice and the removal of the weapon/armor degradation is done nicely and is a concept that wouldn't mix well with the new crafting system.
It just seems like a lot of people expected this to be Fallout 3 again and if it is changed they are going to complain. I know a bulk of the negative reviews are from the compatibility issues with the pirated copies and that is a true shame.
Anyways, great game and only going to get better as the mods come out.… Expand
Creation engine's history of bad performance at resolutions higher than 1080p is visible here. I have a 980 in SLI and i7 4790k. Well over recommended specs. At 1440p after disabling all gameworks, dropping everything to high and shadows to medium I still struggle to keep solid 60fps.
Bugs are aplenty. I've been playing for 1hour and 15 minutes. The game crashed twice and forced me to reload three times because of a persisting bug with terminals and character getting stuck.
The UI is really, really bad. There's no keybinding consistency and loot menu is very counter intuitive. To navigate it you must do three things at the same time. Keep your mouse coursor on an object, scroll with your wheel and use a keyboard key to move items into your inventory.
I'm constantly finding myself having to alternate between navigating with WSAD and a mouse to switching to directional arrows to navigate dialogue. In menus I'm confirming with e, then suddenly e cancels all my choices cause I was supposed to press space or enter. It's really, really bad.
The visuals are decent but definitely not at a level that warrants that high system requirements and performance this poor.
Overall I gotta say that I'm not impressed. This isn't a finished game and shouldn't be released in this state. Shame on you Bethesda. Was going to be a game of the year and it seems we're in for a dissapointment of the year.
Recommendation: Don't buy. Wait for Bethesda to get their **** together or - more likely - for modders to clean up their mess. Again.… Expand
No RPG elements, panders to the ''play for 15It's a Fallout game that threw out every aspect of Fallout for mediocre shooting mechanics.
No RPG elements, panders to the ''play for 15 hours and not play it again'' crowd, no point in making builds since you can eventually get all the perks and SPECIALs and become god of the wasteland, no RPG elements, no point in replaying the game since it will always be the same **** runs like **** in urban areas, lack of weapons, useless time-sink settlement system. Bethesda, once again, puts half the effort into their game and expects their modders to finish the rest for them.… Expand
Thank you,Well, ok, the game itself deserves 6/10 rating, but THIS SHOULD BE FALLOUT. Just because it isn't, i'll give it only 1/10.
Thank you, Bethesda, for killing the dream!… Expand
