Cutting this short - disappointed.
Can't complain on the graphic, it's really nice, maybe the colors a too washed out. But the gameplay... I was expecting more RPG oriented action like in New Vegas.
More complicated quests, talking with the people, handling delicate situations by using SPEECH skill (where is it in F4?). In F4 I feel like playing a hybrid of COD and imaginary "lowlife sim" where player picks every piece of junk only to create... anything (at poorly designed workbench interface).
After a while quests have become really generic and simple, reminding radiant quests from Skyrim. Do this, do that,, bring that, kill this one etc. Boring.
Dialogues have been butchered and reduced to one liners and player can only guess what his character would say.
Skill requirements on objects. They are gone. Enjoy new perk system, seriously... I thought TES and F3+ used to have differences, but no Beth decided to flatted and unify things down. Why.
I'm a hardcore F1&F2 fan and I don't negate anything what Bethesda creates. In around year 2000 during my first contact with Fallout 2 I was dreaming about seeing this game with my own eyes - not in real life :P but via FPP on a screen :) Really liked many. but not all things about F3. Later on Obsidian pushed F3 into a new level by delivering New Vegas. I was really impressed and this was just like I imagined! Really loved how Obsidian handled new Vegas - despite broken difficulty where player was able to become an avatar who kills deathclaws with a toothpick.
I don't know why Bethesda decided to turn new Fallout into more shooting oriented game with simplified RPG elements and watered down plot section. Do they really think that all gamers are some stupid kids who cant read or calculate things?
Turned down with F4. Removed the game from my disk. Installed New Vegas with some graphics enhancements and survival/difficulty mods such as J Sawyer mod https://goo.gl/hkFfOn and some others.
It's the highest time to finish this game :)
Last time I was too busy with exploring and realized after reaching 40lvl my cowboy could castrate a deathclaw with a razor blade (unmodded). Playing NV with postnuclear cowboy-avatar was not fun anymore. With Sawyers mod it is different and really hard, exp gain is halved and there is a level cap. It's easy to die there, carry has been lowered and there are constant basic needs for hydration and nutrition. It's really fun and reminds me of F2 now.
This is how it looks like after removing that dirty-orange filter (Realistic Wasteland Lighting)
