Fallout 4 Has a Fallout 2 Vibe

And that’s a good thing.

You don’t have to be an NMA poster to know that Fallout 3 was a mess. An empty world where you spent most of your time killing things in subway tunnels with some ambitious set pieces, but few people in them and no sense of life.

Fallout New Vegas got back to what the series was meant to be and the new Fallout 4 trailer shows a world that is closer to Fallout 2, the best game in the series, that’s more than just radscorpions and wastelands, but has people trying to put things back together after the end. There’s color, life, sprawling commerce and cities with more than 4 people in them.

Fallout 3 was good at showing the devastation and emptiness left behind, but it lacked people. Fallout New Vegas did its best, but Obsidian couldn’t do much with the engine. New Vegas had to be broken up.

Fallout 4 seems to be set in a Boston that mixes old ruins with new technology. Hopefully like Fallout 2, it shows new societies emerging out of the rubble, secretive technology clans and a little bit of cyberpunk.

I would mention the faces, but it’s just easier to assume that any Gamebyro game is going to suffer from zombieface.
