About

Fallout 76 is a multiplayer-only game set in the universe of Fallout series. It is the first MMO game in the Fallout franchise and ninth installment overall. It is also the earliest game in the Fallout universe inner chronology, thus serving as a prequel to the whole series.

Setting

The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, a quarter century after a nuclear holocaust that turned most of the US into a radioactive wasteland. The players assume the roles of the various dwellers of Vault 76, presumably the first Vault-Tec bunker to release its inhabitants. Their goal is to reclaim the world. The vault is located in the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. Fallout 76 offers an open world with many locations based on real West Virginia places. Some of the new monsters are also based on the local folklore.

Gameplay

Unlike all previous games in its series, Fallout 76 features no human NPCs (although robots and monsters are present). Instead, the game delivers the story through records and environment. Some of Fallout series famous mechanics return in Fallout 76. The character creation is based on a modified version of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system of abilities and perks. V.A.T.S. targeting system also appears, albeit this time it works in real-time. The game allows the players to build homes and establish settlements in any part of the map. There are also nuclear missiles that allow the players to annihilate each other's settlements.

Fallout 76 reviews and comments

Fallout 76 was & is a pretty major disappointment. As a pretty big fan of the franchise, I wasn't into the idea of a multiplayer game and the bad reviews & glaring bugs didn't calm my worries either. I avoided the game but one day at my local CEX, I saw the game going for a measly £10. My morbid curiosity got the better of me and I decided to finally give it a go. 

First off, lemme go over the positives because this game while nowhere near the standards I look for in a Fallout game, there are some genuine strong points here. One of them is the game's map. 76's map is pretty massive and is broken up in multiple parts that are all unique and feature a large variety of enemies. The Mire especially helps the game's aging engine look pretty as hell.

The gunplay is pretty identical to Fallout 4 so no complaints there. It's pretty easy to master and plays just well enough even if it doesn't feel particularly fresh or exciting.

The negatives mostly outweigh the positives though. The game is just far too buggy to really enjoy. It's laggy & choppy most of the time and just doesn't feel like a smooth game. It more so feels like a game that has been stitched together but the thread is falling apart. There's various sources online that claim that the game was heavily rushed and honestly, it shows. This isn't what a Fallout game should be. 

At most, Fallout 76 is an acceptable game to play casually while listening to music or a podcast. Anything else though, it just isn't a good time & Bethesda should know better than to release this clearly unfinished product.

Rented this one from Redbox. To say this game is a mess would be an understatement
«Buggy as hell»

Horrible optimisation, missions and players. New op update with overpriced member ship (£99 a year), horrible updates. Do not buy even if your life depends on it. It really is as bad as people say it is.
«Buggy as hell»
«Disappointment of the year»
I absolutely love the fallout series, they always seem to have the best stories, people and companions; along with a great set of missions to do! However fallout 76 kinda fell flat for me, the game is great and I do love it but it lacks luster with its missions; it gets repetitive and has you do the same things over and over again with the main storyline being pretty short and lack luster as well.

The other main issues; although fixable is the bugs! Some of the bugs make the game unplayable I’m certain aspects with consent disconnecting or crashing and freezing
