Sure, there’s the odd tweak here and there – such as the streamlining of some game mechanics and the introduction of a deep new crafting system – but underneath it all lays the same open world adventure filled with murder, mystery and mutants. Not that it’s a bad thing.
The familiarity of the gameplay allows you to jump into Fallout 4 and find your feet pretty easily, letting you get on with what’s important in a post-apocalyptic world – exploring, shooting maniacs and mutants in the face, and grabbing all kinds of loot – but there’s also some unwanted remnants of prior console ports of the Fallout titles too: a plethora of bugs, and a somewhat erratic framerate."
