Radar Rating: 5/5

It is back. You are back in the Wasteland. Couple of years ago you were roaming the streets of post-apocalyptic Vegas. This time you are going back in time to witness how it all began. 

Fallout 4 has more first person shooter elements than its predecessors, which focused more on a RPG style. The skill tree has undergone a few interesting changes (including new goofy illustrations), now enabling the player to plan ahead. And to make the game even more innovative and interesting, a crafting system has been added. This allows you to customize your weapons, armour and home base, which is not only a home for you but also to companions whom you befriend on your journey. 

Similarly to the past Fallout games you are given storyline to follow. Whilst simply surviving the Wasteland might seem like the purpose of the game, every time you start reaching a goal, more story is revealed. Soon you’ll realize that you are just a small part of a much larger plot. But the kind of role you play depends on yourself.

The best thing about the Fallout series is that you can choose to play the game in so many different ways. Will you be a coldblooded heartless murderer who will shoot first, ask questions never? A clever wisecrack, who can talk his way out of any situation? Or maybe a good Samaritan, who will do what’s right and will shoot only those who seek harm the innocent. Like so many others, I created a character in my own likeness: lucky, charismatic and low on intelligence.

Fallout 4 had some large shoes to fill and as for myself, it did not disappoint. It offered hours upon hours of fun and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys story driven games.

See you in the Wasteland!
