I did a tiny review for this a long time ago, but updating it again playing through in 2021. This game didn't receive as much high praise as the other games in the series, and I've never really been sure why. It is pretty much just like Fallout 3, but with better graphics and base building. That's exactly what I was looking for and thoroughly enjoyed my time playing - but I guess people were disappointed it wasn't more innovative. That's fair enough given that all the Fallout and Elder Scrolls games have basically been the same for the last 10+ years. If you want more of that though, Fallout 4 is excellent. The base building is unnecessary, combat is much improved from previous games.
