Fallout 4 mixes real-time, first-person combat with a slow-motion, tactical VATS mode, where time slows to a crawl and you can flick not just between targets, but between parts of a target, giving you a chance to blast vulnerable areas or take out an arm or leg to cripple a more powerful foe. It’s a near-perfect balance, making the game feel action-packed while giving fans of more conventional RPGs something closer to the feel of turn-based combat.

Fallout 4’s crafting system gives even more motivation to compulsively collect everything that isn’t nailed down. It’s so easy, too - grabbing things out of containers happens quickly in window that pops up when you look over it.

Fallout 4 is a fantastic open-world role-playing game with an amazing sense of style and presence. It offers a seemingly endless amount to do, explore and characters to meet.

Fallout 4 truly shines in its sidequests, and happily, these quests are numerous and varied. By putting the larger narrative aside, the writers at Bethesda embrace the freedom to tell one-off stories that aren’t beholden to the larger politics of the Commonwealth.

Animations are pretty good as well, and combat genuinely felt like I was deciding the fate of the character, rather than a random dice roll of VATS. S

What experts didn't like
Plainly framed scenes and basic animations lend a roughness to the finish product, as do its frequent glitches.

I’m not one for lengthy and tedious tutorials, but while Fallout 4’s quest structure gives you room to get to grips with the fundamentals early on, key systems and activities go relatively unexplained.

Fallout 4’s performance on both consoles is tolerable, but sometimes disappointing. We’ve seen frequent frame rate slowdowns well below the target of 30 when simply walking around the world, and hitches of a second or more that arise mostly after loading a new save or fast-traveling.
- IGN Southeast Asia
A few logistical issues like destination markers and design choices could use some work. There are also a few glitches on PC and some framerate slowdown on PlayStation 4.

The entire Fallout 4 crafting system is powered by...junk. Yes, junk. Bethesda games have always been full of interactive objects that you can pick up and look at, most of which serve as window dressing for creating more believable worlds.

For all the times the AI worked and worked well, there’s double or triple the amount of times that it didn’t.

An Overview On Playstation Games

PlayStation games are constantly evolving, drawing larger crowds and critics with each new product. How do you know which one is going to be the best? Let’s take a look at some of the best components of PlayStation, and then hear what the consumers have to say.

Sony is the developer and producer of Playstation, a video gaming console. The original was born in 1994, Playstation 2 arrived in 2000 and Playstation 3 hit the shelves in 2006. The appeal of the original was a faster, clearer and visually-enhanced experience. With the second version, the progression of processing power was greatly advanced, and the model offered USB ports, as well as a modem that gave players access to online gaming. PS3 was a result of competition with Xbox and Wii, and it certainly stepped up the game. With a cell processor, ethernet port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, extra storage and web browser among other features, PS3 was ready for online gaming at its best. The latest model, Playstation 4, tops them all with access to a personal network account, tournaments and communities, live streaming, share play features and a social group chat area.

Each progression has brought countless games to consumers. Consumers will find old favorites that have been revised and enhanced for PlayStation 4. The old games have been updated with better graphics and more features for players. “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” is one such game. “Assassin’s Creed” has been around for quite a while and has engrossed countless players with beautiful scenery that imitates the ancient Greek countryside. Players will feel completely immersed with outstanding graphics and reactionary worlds within the game. Find the best of old and new in this fan-favorite.

For an action-packed gaming experience, there are few choices that consumers recommend. “Marvel’s Spider-Man” offers an out-of-this-world, superhero game. Although the superheroes feel a bit worn out, this game brings a refreshing model of interaction that truly captivates the player. Another edge-of-your-seat game is “Red Dead Redemption 2.” This game is set in the country-western style of America. Cowboys battle over land and property in epic saloon gunfights and stand-offs. These two will give you the action battles you want from a good console game.

If you are crazy about post-apocalyptic worlds and their imagined creatures, then “Horizon Zero Dawn” is the game for you. With robotic animals and creative weapons, you’ll find yourself transported to another world in this captivating game of good versus evil.

Don’t limit yourself to just one genre, give them all a try. When friends come over for a fun game night, you’ll have options for everyone’s taste, and you are sure to enjoy all these top picks.
