I love Fallout, but because I love it, I have to be tough on this review. I'm tough because I care and want Bethesda to do better.
1) Helmet The helmet is not as awesome as you would think. It's hard to see out of it. What you can see is super blurry. It has 2 buttons on the left side. 1 button on the right side.
One of the left buttons operates the "breather" sound. You press it once, you get one breath sound. They should have made it continuous interval looping with the button being on/off.
The other left side button is the voice changer. You press it, but when you talk all you get is a weird noise/sound. And I tried it on two different helmets, so it wasn't a bad helmet. The right side button is the 'light'. Which works ok. It turn on, creates light, but really more for show only, not very powerful.
The battery cover is very flimsy, will likely break in the future.
Runs on 3 AAA batteries.
2) Little figurines bag You get a little bag with 24 tiny plastic molded figurines. Think like green army men plastic figurines, but better quality. Vault dweller, robots, creatures, etc. Good if you like to do tabletop roleplay, or just want to display one or two around the home/work space.
3) Map Poster. Just a map poster of the Virginia in-game map.
The game: You have to use the Bethesda Launcher, game is not available on Steam. You get the Tri-central edition of the game included in the power armor edition. You get the standard game code for the base game. And a separate piece of paper with the tri-centennial bonus stuff. Really not worth it. All the tri-central gets you is a bunch of DLC junk cosmetics for the new atom store. Nothing useful like a good weapon or armor like in Fallout New Vegas DLC when you bought the game from certain retailers.
The game is kind of bland. Yes it's Fallout, but a very boring Fallout. You are experiencing everything cool that happened after it happened. Everything is on audiotapes, or from bots, or computers that sound human. Most of the time you will just be trying to scrape enough junk to repair your weapons/eat/drink. And fighting creatures/super mutants/scorched (ghouls with guns)
The CAMP system is boring and bland. Doesn't feel like they really thought it out. You just need to buy the main things (Armor/weapon/tinker/water/etc) and deploy it once/twice a game to heal up or repair your gear or make bullets/aid and stash your junk. It costs money to do this every time, so basically do it only once/twice per game session unless you want to be broke all the time.
The game is monotonous. I want to explore and have fun. But I keep getting consonantly pulled out of the fun because I'm dying of thirst, starving, or carrying too much weight. So basically its like a lot of the worst parts of Fallout with not much of the Fallout fun/adventure.
You can fight other player if you want, but really there is no point unless you want to 'roleplay' The resources that it takes are just not worth it compared to the reward you get.
I advice you spend lots of point early in strength to help lessen the frustration of constantly having to unload your junk in the game.
Do yourself a favor, buy the base game when it goes on sale in a few months. Anything more is a waste of yours money.
The management and personnel involved in the development of this game should be removed from their position. This game was clearly rushed, and the vision was off the mark.
Fallout is a role playing single player game, and it is an excellent series for that type of gameplay; however, the management turned the direction of this most recent fallout into a poorly executed MMO. To add insult to injury, the developers allowed VATS to be used in PvP, and added too many variants of weapon bonuses to effectively balance PvP.
The PvE is pretty horrible compared to what we are used too in the older Fallout games. There is almost no storyline, no choices, and no consequences. It is more of a MMO type grind with very little end-game content.
Fallout 76 was a rushed, poorly executed game which has crushed my confidence in Bethesda. They pretty much used a reskin of Fallout 4, removed any kind of PvE interaction, added a new map with some new weapons, and charged a 60.00+ dollar price tag for it. I personally won't be buying the new doom or any other future fallout games if this is the direction they are taking.
Pros: Graphic System CAMP System
Cons: Perk System Weight Management PvP; VATS in PvP Consistant Lag Unbalanced Weapons Lack of end-game content MMO Type-Grind Weeds/Brush Everywhere; Can't even find loot. Frequent Crashes Mic Communcation Only
It pains me to write this, but this is a massive letdown. The helmet is cool to look at from a distance, but when you get close it's incredibly thin plastic and the inside assembly is shoddy. I'm giving this 2 stars instead of one just because it is Fallout and my love of the franchise earns one star. After the other collectors editions of earlier games, it really appears they cheaped out on this one. Wires loosely taped to the inside of the helmet, stick on covers attached crooked, and the visor you can't really see out of clearly as the plastic used is not anywhere near optical quality. I'd forgive this if they had stated it was a display piece, but it's touted as something you can wear.
Sadly the same is true for the game itself. Buggy multiplayer mess that "looks" like Fallout 4, but doesn't give you the same feeling. For only 25 years after the bombs dropped the world doesn't strike me as looking right. Many of the buildings look the same as they did 200 years after the bombs dropped. Either they didn't look old enough, or these don't look new enough. It's clear they rushed this out. It's also clear that they have completely lost the "Fallout" feel of games with story and the like. I'm really unhappy with this. Fallout 5 better be earth shattering. This is NOT a Fallout game.
When Fallout 76 and the Power Armor Edition were announced earlier this year at E3 I was stoked. Initially, I was not able to order the Power Armor Edition because it was immediately sold out; it was only months later that I was -cough- *fortunate* enough to see one available on Amazon. I jumped on it without hesitation (and it was sold out again shortly afterwards).
What I received was something less than stellar.
First off there's the notorious vinyl bag, a cheap replacement for a canvas bag, switched out without notice from Bethesda. At first it didn't bother me so much but in retrospect, considering the price, the silent bait and switch really ate away at me (especially in light of everything else that's wrong).
The game itself is doubly disappointing. Bethesda Rockville and Bethesda Austin released Fallout 76 in a woeful state and it's only gotten worse. The B.E.T.A. actually ran better than the "finished" product if you can believe it. Moreover, the game runs terribly on PC on a decent (if aged) midrange system that runs Fallout 4 at 50-60fps, that is, when the game isn't crashing. And crash it does. Repeatedly. To the point where it is nearly unplayable; sometimes the game will run fine for a couple of hours, other times you can't play for 15-20 minutes without a CTD.
When the game actually runs it is actually pretty fun, far more fun than the negative reviews would have you believe (especially when co-oping with a friend). Sure there are things that could be better, bad enemy AI and bugs being the worst of it IMHO, and I hope/believe that Bethesda will smooth these things out in time but the current state of the game is nowhere near where it should have been. This is easily Bethesda's worse release since New Vegas, which itself was broken at launch.
However, the real kicker for me in this Power Armor edition was the Power Armor helmet. I'm not a stickler for build quality, I wasn't expecting an actual Power Armor helmet. The overall look is nice and it looks pretty badass but that's the extent of it. The cloth collar that hides your neck has a strong chemical smell to it, possibly the adhesive they used (some people claim it's the paint but the helmet itself doesn't seem to smell to my senses).
But worst of all, its featured voice-changer, is defective. Instead of an electronically modified voice, the device just releases a garbled and distorted electronic muffle that is incomprehensible.
Taking this into account, the bait and switch vinyl bag, the state of the game I cannot in good conscience call this a good value, certainly not for 200 dollars. I finally threw in the towel and called Amazon to return mine and get my money back.
Bethesda dropped the ball big time on this and being one of their biggest fans I am extremely disillusioned with them.
My only hope, as a fan of the company and their games, is that they do not give up on Fallout 76 and that they take a serious lesson from this fiasco. Bethesda stop cutting corners. Polish your games. Give your fans their money's worth. In doing so you will effectively disarm your most toxic critics whom you've given plenty of ammunition with Fallout 76.
I only hope their next endeavor (Starfield) avoids the pitfalls of Bethesda's penny-pinching.
Just...don't. Buy the regular game at a discounted price, if anything. The helmet is awful for something you pay a lot of money for. It's cheap plastic. I'm not asking nor expecting it to be made out of metal, but there is better plastic out there. The voice modulation box barely works. Your voice carries through and drowns out the modulation box, even at full volume. Everything about this thing screams cheap.
The game itself? Good lord, what a buggy mess. I've been playing Bethesda's version of Fallout since the beginning. Fallout 3 and NV were magical, and so was Fallout 4 to an extent.
But when I play for an hour, then get force disconnected from the server, only to have that entire hour of gameplay vanish when I log back in...you know, it's a wee-bit tough to not be upset about that.
This game is really Fallout with small multiplayer. I was really excited about this aspect at first, but even playing with friends was kind of rote.
The game is very pretty. That is its best feature. Definitely the prettiest of the Fallouts. Not sure if it will save it in the end.
Bethesda needs to fix bugs (which is lol for them to do so), add more gameplay, etc. If this game grows, then great, I'll raise my review. But we'll see if that happens.
For now, avoid. Dummies like me bought this so you don't have to.
Amazon: -Item arrived late Helmet: - Nice looking but was covered in dust - Batteries included died after less than 10 minutes of use. -The part you see through is blurry not clear, making wearing it useless. Plastic figurines: - They look ok but I doubt anyone getting this edition wanted them or will use them Map: Nice and detailed, planning on putting it on my wall Game: - Does not come with physical disc copy, instead a piece of cardboard - Steelbook is nice - Digital Extras are paint jobs and outfits, they are not worth the extra $20 you would normally have to pay for them - No Manual Not canvas bag: - Advertised as canvas, received nylon instead - Still being advertised as canvas, deceiving marketing Overall this edition fails on presentation, the box could have been smaller, the quality of the products included was not the best, and Bethesda continues to show a product not included as included.... lying to anyone who purchases the product.
Cheap nylon bag. Definitely some disappointing physical content for a rather expensive purchase of a special edition. The helmet was alright and looked good for a collectible item. The foam pad inside immediately unfixed itself after being affixed. The wiring is exposed on the inside, so that seems like a hazard. The visor on it cannot be clearly seen through considering you can wear it. I get that it has no peripheral, but seeing through it is certainly a strain and the visor is way too narrow. If the actual people in the game wearing these things had something to say, they'd probably complain though too. The map glows, kind of, but it is very weak. The miniatures are definitely cool, albeit pretty low detail. Lots of triple copies of the same miniatures.
This edition somehow feels a little too cheap for the $200 price tag. I get it on the helmet since thats a collector type item, but the bag is not canvas as it was originally advertised. To be fair, I can get behind $150.00 on the Power Armor Edition considering I think tricentenial edition was overpriced for the very small amount of additional content. I'm quite disappointed in Bethesda for delivering something that just feels like most of it will all fall apart quickly. I hate to give it such a scathing review, considering I love the game itself. It just feels all wrong, and I feel especially cheated by it. I understand the logistics of running a business and making a profit, but this could have been approached better, like removing the miniatures and adding the price of making those to instead make a better bag. Poor form and allocation of resources. I'd arather pay $250.00 if it got me a much more superior product.
Gameplay This game still has much potential in the future but for right now I have to give it a 2 star. The game has way too many bugs and issues to be a full fledge game in my opinion and this feels like a game in the alpha stage. The biggest disappointment in game is I am still finding bugs that were and are still present in Fallout 4. The story is very dry without any human based NPC and the PVP needs a serious overhaul. I know griefing is a serious issue in these kinds of games, but I feel Bethesda was too strict in there policy. Whenever I killed another player I was given a bounty for everyone to see. I feel it should have been if I kill two or more players within 10 minutes I should receive a punishment. Base building and the cache is receiving a much needed update soon so that's good news. Until Bethesda Game Studios fixes these bugs and improves gameplay I must give it a 2/5 sadly.
Physical Content The most disappointing part of this purchase is when I purchased the Power Armor Edition in the early morning of the release I expected a high quality special edition of my favorite game company Bethesda Game Studios. When the product arrived I was overjoyed and couldn't wait to dig in to my long awaited collectors edition and when I opened it I was appalled. The power armor helmet had a two manufacturing issues: the first being the left hose leading to the mouth was not secured properly and is sticking out and the second a hooked shaped piece suppose to mounted on the helmet near the visor wasn't even secured on (I super glued it on and looks great). Then the biggest disappointment the nylon bag. The description when I bought it said canvas and instead I was given nylon. I have heard that Bethesda Game Studios said it was due to not enough material and money, but then they say they have at least a million players in Fallout 76 meaning they have made more than $60 Million (assuming everyone bought the standard edition). The $5 game currency given to me as compensation for the bag from Bethesda was like a spit in the face. After making a huge profit can't they just send us the canvas bags? I am scared to see what becomes of my highly anticipated Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 and I will NOT pre-order either of these titles nor would I recommend pre-ordering until reviews come out, especially after this debacle.
Honestly kind of a disappointment. There is mold seams in the helmet, the visor is cheap plastic that warps the view, the “lamp” is a very dull light, the “canvas” bag which honestly I was most excited about was just cheap plastic and even the map was really just a cheap paper (does it even glow in the dark?). Bethesda in general kinda let me down with the game and it’s collectors package :(
