    Fallout 4's setting and conceit are strong as ever, but it feels quite a bit less daring and honed than its predecessor.

    Pros

    • The Commonwealth (Boston) is home to some fantastic Fallout lore
    • Gorgeous lighting effects
    • Retains the signature Bethesda feeling of exploration

    Cons

    • Too much padding
    • New systems feel arbitrary and kill the pacing
    • Retains the signature Bethesda bugginess
