More engaging than expected
Reviewed in Australia on 19 December 2018
For sure it's a 'Bethesda game' that inherits all the usual bugs, quirks, and wide range of quality depending where you are and what you're doing, but I've honestly been far more engaged playing Fallout 76 than I had envisioned.
I knew going in that there were major issues, and that Todd hadn't been forthcoming about a lot of the game, so my expectations were low. But after playing I began to understand just where this game was pitched, and that it occupies a different space than Fallout 4.
If you take it for what it is there's 100's and 100's of hours of emergent content and stories to be consumed.
If definitely needs the tune-ups it's receiving via patches, but it's better than you might think. Especially as you can pick it up super cheap now.
