Fallout 76 Review: 4 Ups & 7 Downs

A disastrous misfire from Bethesda.

Fallout 76 has been out for a few days now, and given the online-only nature of Bethesda's new open-world survival game, reviews are only just starting to emerge.

The early reception from fans and critics alike hasn't been good, and having put 20+ hours into the game since launch, it's incredibly difficult to argue with the still-forming consensus.

Fallout 76 is without question the most disappointing game released this year so far, and one of the most stunningly inept AAA productions in recent memory.

It takes the much-loved gameplay of the prior entries and reinvents it as a soulless, technically atrocious cash-grab that clearly needed a ton more time in the oven.

While it's possible that the end-game could perk things up a little, it has to be said - how many players are actually going to persevere through its aggressively boring world and make it to the finale?

If you're on the fence about this game, make sure to educate yourself on its nearly game-breaking abundance of issues, because with a product this shamelessly rough, Bethesda really doesn't deserve your hard-earned cash this time around...
