Fallout 4 (This review may Contain Spoilers!) Thorough Description
(I am not an ADULT)(C.S.M. messed up my account.) Fallout 4 is a really interesting game it allows you to explore an atomic wasteland, 200 years after being stored cryogenically (SPOILERS!!!) only to be momentarily awake to see your spouse get killed and your son Shaun, kidnapped and your wife/husband get shot then you fall back asleep (supposedly 10 years, saying how old Shaun was at the time and the description of the kidnapper later with the child.) . I have only played as the male character, but I think it works the same way if you choose
you can mold the characters face to make it the way you want it unlike all of the previous games where you could select a face.
You can build houses and settlements, only on CLEARED land or it will allow you to build there just hold "V" (PC) or go to a workbench.
The modeling of the statistics is different you have a health bar that reacts to how much radiation you have say you eat,drink or encounter something that can give you Rads it will turn some of the bar red. Ex: 1000 health points total eat something with 10 Rads =990 health with a red section that you can't get back without using something to eliminate the radiation.
Things that made the items different.
It doesn't allow you to pick up an object in different place like holding the top, bottom or middle of a object it only lets you how one part (some items have an exception)
Nuke a cola is pretty different
it has a new container looks like either a rocket or an atomic bomb.
and the machines are just little doors that you can open and get the beverage off of a little shelf. A new kind of Nuka Cola (Nuka Cherry)
it takes the regeneration from Fallout New Vegas where you eat/drink something and it regenerates your health instead of instantly, (Fallout 3)
Items will sometimes go through a shelf on to the next one or sink down halfway into the shelf it is sitting on. Sometimes the floor. (Fallout, more like Fall down. :P)
There are a lot of them ranging from your first one (Dogmeat) to all kinds of others with their own special things they can do.
Dogmeat sniff and find things, latch onto enemies (special perk)
Others can either give you things, help you or do different things.
some new guns like Pipe Pistols and the line of Pipe weapons.
and I think Nuclear line of weapons as well, I don't know if they are in other games.
Is, weather your doing things you companion or settlements like or the good thing to do.
such as helping out a village by killing the feral ghouls or super mutants, seems to be a recurring thing in the Fallout series.
Scrap down items (do this at a settlement that you can use their workbench to build on their settlement.) or (Buy materials) , mostly junk to get materials, used for building, crafting, modding, etc.
The Brotherhood of Steel.
It is a full on army against the institute, (an evil, feared and powerful association that wreaks havoc on the waste land.)
Synths, RadStag, Mutant hounds,Blood bugs and evil robots, that try to kill you.)
Weird/cool things (DEFINITELY A SPOILER)
Codsworth (Fallout 4) Wadsworth (Fallout 3)-personal robot butler (find any similarities.)
(Codsworth) can say your name that you type in or maybe it was a coincidence. type in your name ex: John and codsworth, I think will say Master "John" but I have only tried with my name. and it can also be yout companion.
Vaults and bunkers, things that protected people during the atomic explosion have, pristine objects like abraxo cleaner, food, COMFY PILLOWS.
I always grab everything down there like I can never go back there again.
Powered with Fusion cores not super easy to find, but they are usually in big buildings with power. and sometimes in places you have to go for missions.
You can play the Classic 8 bit games like
Donkey kong (Red Menace)
and Pip Boys can play holotapes to.
The radio is the same
(Music that sounds like it is from the 50's)
All though it is not bad music.
(End of Spoilers!)
This game is very well made and I enjoy it a lot even with it's quirks, and the things listed above were just the tip of the iceberg, so enjoy Fallout 4 and play on through the Wasteland.
