Fallout falls short of predecessors
PS4, Xbox One, PC Fallout 76 is best summed up by the first few moments of the game itself: a walk through uninhabited corridors strewn with the remains of last night’s party.
Previous Fallout adventures were rich solo experiences in a 1950s-tinged post-apocalyptic wilderness, teeming with survivors.
Sadly, this is a plodding multiplayer experience
peopled only by other players and, while the lush visuals provide a dreadful beauty, the lack of NPCs means there’s no personality and no liveliness to this pale world.
VATS targeting is useless, missions are bland, PvP is heavily neutered and the in-game transactions are shameful. Fallout 76 is a real catastrophe.
Barren landscape Fallout76 has little appeal
