Fallout 4

Fallout 4 (PS4)

Fallout 4 (XBOX One)

Fallout boys in the world, rejoice because the much awaited installment to the Fallout series, created by the same people that brought you the previous Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is now here and it promises to be their most ambitious Fallout title to date. Fallout 4 features the next generation of open world gaming as players, both recurring veterans and battle-shy newcomers, take on the role of a survivor from Vault 111 as they venture through the nuclear-stricken wasteland and be whoever they want to be thanks to the new S.P.E.C.I.A.L system.

Because every Fallout player is very special in any way, the S.P.E.C.I.A.L system allows them to customize their very own character based on Strength, Perception, Energy, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck. Be who you want to be but ask yourself before heading out in the nuclear wastelands, what makes you SPECIAL? Yep, it's that question those old-school clips from Vault-Tec would ask but anyway, be yourself and do whatever you want by challenging yourself with main missions, side missions, and tons of challenges that will keep you hanging for longer. Well, not here because with atomic radiation plaguing through the wastelands, you'd better check your trusty Pip-Boy what you're doing now or best to rely on your survival instincts for endurance.

Since this game is ushered to the age of next-gen gaming, the next-generation graphics and lighting engine truly brings this game come to life but sometimes, it can be a so-so depending on which TV you are playing with. No matter which HD TV you're playing with, the graphics still doesn't cut the mustard but whatever, its the gameplay that is worth redeeming with.

As much as you enjoy customizing your character from the start, one thing that is worth redeeming in Fallout 4 is its most advanced crafting system ever. Not only you can craft new weapons, armor, and other objects, but you can even build and manage entire settlements in the wastelands. Now that's intelligence well-used for survival.

When engaging combat against enemies, raiders or mutants alike, you can try slowing it down with the help of the brand new VATS or Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System, allowing you to choose your attacks and try aiming on the weak points or if you're in the subject of agility, you can take down multiple enemies in VATS. Of course, there are many ways to take down the enemy but use caution however because ammunition is very scarce in the world of Fallout so try whatever means necessary to defeat or avoid enemies.

There are many ways to do in the world of Fallout 4 but how you live it up is up to you because only you can decide the fate of the great nation you're standing now at your own risk. Remember though, you are not alone.

So, what's to like about Fallout 4? The gameplay that will keep you longing for hours, the new crafting system, the new VATS system, and the many ways to enjoy the latest installment. What's not to like is the storyline, the graphics that looked so-so, the BGM, and the complexity that even your starter equipment couldn't cut it. Still, it's been the installment worth the wait after almost seven years and it's well fit for next-gen gaming consoles like the PS4 and XBOX One.

Oh, and you can avail for the Season Pass for $29.99 because expect more things to come in the world of Fallout 4. And as always, Fallout boys, welcome home and good luck enjoying your open-world adventures in the desolate landscape. Come on, Vault Boy's waiting for your calling.
