Fallout 76 would have been best served by a longer, continuous B.E.T.A. cycle. Numerous small issues like bugs, stash size, push-to-talk, and other quality of life issues could have been identified before asking people to spend $60 and working on them after release. Despite this faux pas, there is still a tremendous amount of fun to be had either solo or with friends.
If that is what you are looking for and you can be gracious as well as honest with where the game is presently at, Fallout 76 is worth checking out. If you are on the fence, I would recommend waiting to see how Bethesda handles updates and patches. That should give you a sense of where the game is at and what kind of attention it will be receiving. Personally, I am loving my experiences in Appalachia. It has been a great point of connection with friends and family.
All in all, I dreaded every hour I had to keep playing Fallout 76 for review. As soon as the game was beginning to teeter on fun or interesting, a bug or a frustrating gameplay design element would quickly remind me that the game was otherwise. I’m interested to see whether Bethesda will continue to put work towards making this a somewhat enjoyable experience or if they’ll just save their money for Fallout 5.
