isometric turn-based strategy to action role-playing game, Fallout has seen a
lot of different incarnations.
Some games in the series such as Fallout 2 and New Vegas have
gained critical acclaim, and a great deal of fan popularity, while others - such
as the abysmal Fallout 76 - caused the series' quality to come into question.
Then, sitting in the middle, is Fallout 4.
Gaining commercial and critical success, earning
$750 million in the first 24 hours of release and introducing a lot of new players
to the series, while the game was a success, Fallout 4 was criticised for a number of
Technical and graphical problems, along with its sometimes poorly
implemented dialogue system, caused the game to be thought of poorly by some.
Players of the previous Fallout games felt that Fallout 4 was too far
removed from the previous games in the series, and that there was very little
room for role-playing in this role-playing game.
However, beyond the player character saying something completely
different than you meant and the strange glitches, there is a solid
action-packed entry into the world of RPGs - one that in many regards, stands
head and shoulders above the rest.
