The critics seem to all agree that Fallout 4 is a very good game. However, users on Metacritic haven’t been too kind to Bethesda’s biggest game of 2015.
There are many positive reviews, but they are evenly matched by numerous negative reviews. Only are few are down the middle. It’s also interesting too that the mixed reception is on all platforms.
In comparison, Fallout 3’s user reviews are more favorable. That game’s reception has user scores of 8.0 on PC, 8.1 on PS3 and 8.6 on Xbox 360. The same favorable reception holds true for Fallout: New Vegas. The user reviews are 8.4 on PC, 7.6 on PS3 and 8.1 on the Xbox 360.
Why are the user reviews on Fallout 4 so low compared to the previous games? It appears technical issues are the main reason why. Many people are a little angry about the performance of the game so far.
However, there are many users that feel the new game is just not as fun as the older games. Still, it’s interesting the game is getting mixed reviews from buyers as the older games are universally loved.
