Review – Fallout Shelter (via Bethseda)

A brand new game! I’ve never played Fallout before… so this is my first introduction to the game!

A lot like the game 60 Seconds (reviewed here), you must survive!

I actually enjoyed playing this game even though I was lost a bit in the beginning. Get all your toons. Put them in certain rooms that match their abilities and maximize output. I like this mechanic. Makes you think.

You can also have your people fall in love and make babies too!

IGN.com said: “Fallout Shelter is at its best early on: when your fledgling vault is barely able to scrape by, and every raider attack has the potential to topple your fragile society. Once your vault is firmly established, all fear of losing, and thus the fun, fades away. Combine this with a lack of compelling longterm goals, and you have an experience that’s fun for a few days, but lacks long-term appeal.”

PCGAMER.com said: “It’s a fun diversion, but it’s mostly a diversion I’ve played with when I’m away from my PC. If you’ve never tried the game on mobile devices, it might hold your interest for a bit, but like many F2P games with micro-transactions, there’s a lot of waiting involved. Personally, I’d rather be playing Fallout 4, but at least this one is free.”

Roll GREED. This game might just be the entertainment you’ve been looking for to get you away from the daily grind! Save yourself!
