8 Best And Worst Things About Fallout 76 One Month On | Fallout 76 Review
Is Fallout 76 worth it? We’ve played for the last month for a fuller Fallout 76 PC review, to get an idea of what works (the world, shiny Excavator power armor) and what doesn’t (dull quests, robot NPC and many a glitch). Following our beta impressions, here are the best and worth things about exploring West Virginia. And for more on Shadow, the high-end PC in the cloud, check out: https://shdw.me/RPS
Shadow is a high-end, cloud-based computer accessible on any internet-enabled device. Just like any Windows 10 PC, you can use it to work, play or browse - it has the specs to handle any game, and comes with an integrated fibre connection, perfect for downloading any game or uploading a video at the speed of light.
While you can check out our written Fallout 76 review on Rock Paper Shotgun: The Site With The Words (link below) these are my Fallout 76 PC impressions after playing the game for a month. I’ve been playing quite casually, dipping in for an hour here and there and it’s actually a good way of enjoying Fallout 76. Taken in small doses you can enjoy the repeating quests, not get bored of scavenging loot for your Excavator Power Armor and take in some of the best locations of a huge and varied world. In fact, I think the world map is one of the best things about Fallout 76 - I wish it had a better game attached.
Over the last month I’ve explored the central quest line, made endless stew in Feed The People, I’ve met about hundred robots and no living humans. Yes, I know our Fallout 76 review bangs on about NPCs, but we still find the lack of people troubling. The people we do meet give us good Fallout 76 multiplayer fun, but what you can do with people is relatively limited - it’s really no more advanced than drop-in co-op you’ve seen in other games. Fallout 76 PVP is nothing to get excited about, either. But when you’re in a team of four power armour brutes, smashing super mutants into paste, it’s easy to forget those complaints.
Elsewhere in our list of 8 Best And Worst Things About Fallout 78 One Month On we look at the technical state of the game. The last month of Fallout 76 update has seen the game get better in places - a Fallout 76 new update added much needed hold to talk mic controls and depth-of-field options that sort out some of the earlier problems. But you’ll still find many a Fallout 76 glitch and the server disconnects and crashes are pretty ropey. Why bother building a network of Workshops if a surprise disconnect can just throw away all that hard work? In this PC gameplay you’ll see how the game is currently looking and playing - this is PC gameplay, so I can’t speak to the Xbox One and PS4 state of things. They were definitely shakier at launch than Fallout 76 PC.
I hope you find these Fallout 76 PC impressions helpful. Fallout 76 is still a mix of bad and good one month on, and I still struggle to weigh up which side wins. I find the game hypnotically soothing at times - just wombling around, working towards my private goals - but if I were to play it for much more I’d be bouncing off the lack of meaningful consequence or long-term goals.
If anything needs more explaining or you have questions about things not covered, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to offer some answers.
