Fallout 4 Review : In depth detailing and Gameplay
In my previous post I gave review about The Witcher : Wild hunt. In this post I will be giving review about Fallout 4.
Everybody wants to survive
Fallout 4 was no doubt one of the most hyped game of the year 2015. It was expected to be one of the best game of the year but unfortunately it did not met the expectations of the players. It already feels like we have played this kind of game.
Fallout 4 had few glitches in their graphics but the developer had released patch for the same and now everything seems to be fine. When I started playing fallout 4, the graphics seemed to be “good” not so great as compared to The witcher 3. The same is with all the platforms PC, XONE, PS4. The average FPS I was getting on my laptop was around 35 which was below my expectation. I then tested the same on my friend’s lap where I saw the difference. The average his lap was giving was 45-50. I then realized the versions of our graphics card. Mine was nVidiaGTX 860M 4 GB with Intel 4 GB whereas his was GTX 960 4 GB. Both the graphics was experienced on ultra settings which was good. When I say the graphics are “good” I meant with the texture, sometimes in between the combat there were few glitches. If you need full benchmark of the fallout 4 you can request in the comment section and we will bring you with it
The game is packed with extra-ordinary world. Fallout 4 undoubtedly have ‘n’ nos of location to go on and fascinating characters. This game has just endless amount of fascinating things which bounds the player into it (well I was :P). The graphics part where I told it has few glitches in it and shitty frame rates but yeah still the game-play is the USP of fallout 4 (developer have managed somewhere). There are many times in it where the tasks comes out of no where to do.
So let’s start with the brief of story (No spoilers don’t worry) :D. The game starts with choosing the character either Man or Women. The story starts with just before the bomb fall. The family is completed with a robot. I experienced few glimpse of life under a vault (It felt amazing and scary at the same time). After the bomb blasts the character starts to explore the world with the ways I wanted to. Finding the family, completing new tasks at the same time was fun to start with. littered streets, rusted cars, broken home and many more visual effects were pretty cool to watch. There are many historical monuments post blasts to watch. There are times where I had to cross with through the grass with rotten rats and other animals which I tried to identify but I couldn’t :P. While shooting to one of the animal I literally wondered how the freak they made doom 3 with advance graphics, I wasn’t able to shoot it with the aiming pointer to it (May be it didn’t happened to many of you but yes it did to me).
The best thing I liked about the game was randomness of the enemies attacking. This comes with almost all of the now a days but it seems to be more appealing as compared to others. Everytime I killed an enemy it drops out few things as rewards which helped me through as a resource. Every time I killed one I wondered what will it shit now :D. The enemies health refills indicating they have mutated, it is frustrating. But again here comes the interesting part, whenever you aim on a enemy it starts showing hitting on which part will give more damage. It really impressed me. I found many companion on my way, if you want to know more about them, then you definitely have to be know in and about about them.
Sometimes the game is not about finding quest or completing a task. It is about to roam in world freely, find a random enemy and kill the freak out of it :D. A decision, big or small can change the behavior of the game.
Comparing to the previous versions of fallout, fallout 4 has more interactive talking between the characters. They have more emotions in it and made it more realistic. Unlike The witcher 3, the change in decisions are limited, this may be due to eagerly finishing the game of or to set the mood of the gamer in one directions. While delivering of a dialog by any character there’s a box dialog showed below and who is speaking which helps a lot when the accent changes and you understand a shit :P. You have only 4 chances to go back and change the decision and that too into some of the situations. Sometimes the humor of the character is just lame. When I chose humor dialog it did so in the worst possible manner it can. Some of the old fallout magic are present in fallout 4.
Unlike in past fallout games, fallout 4 gives the sensation while handling a weapon. Still the things missing in it was feedback which was not up to the mark. Past games had the ability to freeze the time while shooting down an enemy but fallout 4 does a smart work with just slowing down a bit and making it more beautiful. The customization of the weapon is what I loved the most in it. But some time it took me hours to customize with it. In the start it took me some time to adjust with it as I never played so interestingly fallout games. Fallout 4 weapon customization needs proper materials which may be found on everyday usage. Resources are the main thing in fallout 4 where using proper resources I could even build a house. Dealing with all these customization is not an easy task. One needs a lots of patience to do so. These resources can be useful for settlements with the trades or shops.
As I have already mentioned above about the glitches in the graphics part, there were many times when the character literally looked like a ‘Doll’. The movement of them were just like puppets, the detailing of the game is awful, but then the gameplay ? Yeah it’s more than what anybody expect considering the past games of fallout. The frame rates were dropping few of the times let’s say 4 out of 10 times.
Well this was the experience of Fallout 4 with me. share your’s in the comment section below. Please share this articles with your friends. Do visit our blog for more reviews.
I could say this this game may give cancer to some of them :p. Jokes apart considering the graphics ? Yeah you may not like it but if you least bother about these things then yeah the game is great to play. The story line is good which bounds the gamer. Almost all the time the game has been great to play, it was about 40+ hours of playing. I hope this may help you to decide with the investment in the game to buy. I will recommend you to play fallout 4 and you won’t regret that. You may leave your comments here.
Over and Out.
