A brilliant, massive sandbox of systems, albeit largely the same one Bethesda has been making for years.

A vast and frequently brilliant return to Bethesda's atomic sandbox, but constant technical issues are a frustration.

9.5 / 10.0
Dan Stapleton

The world, exploration, crafting, atmosphere, and story of Fallout 4 are all key parts of this hugely successful sandbox role-playing game. Great new reasons to obsessively gather and hoard relics of happier times, strong companions, and sympathetic villains driving tough decisions make it an adventure I'll definitely replay and revisit. Even the technical shakiness that crops up here and there can't even begin to slow down its momentum.

A huge game that's anything you want it to be. An immense RPG, shooter, and world to explore that is only constrained by your imagination and desire to explore.
