Fallout 4: Nuka World Review

"Perfect Dystopian Funland"


Past Fallout titles have typically brought massive expansions and while Fallout 4 hasn't quite been given the same treatment, this last DLC pack truly is a special package. Travel to magical kingdom of Nuka World that takes the popular drink from the series and basically shows off its national park.

It carries a vibe of what Disneyland might be like during the apocalypse and it's magical. The story has you head out to this abandoned station outside of the regular map and then you're shipped off to the amusement park. There you'll need to complete a deadly and actually rather hardcore gauntlet.

After that area is finished you just somewhat become a boss of the park and it's your job to restore order between the various gangs however you deem necessary. This is done through a series of chats and reclamation of the various zones which have fallen victim to a number of events. This includes things such as a magician, becoming sheriff and dealing with robots that have gone haywire.

While it's not as deep in terms of story in comparison to Far Harbor it was still a stellar ride with great side quests and an adventure that displays the entire park. I was also pleasantly surprised at just the massive scale of this place offering not only large zones with rides you can actually ride, but there are some surrounding areas as well to check out.

It's seriously got some deep content for you to explore and while the story may lag a bit behind the content that's fine as I just spent hours looking around. It's chilling almost seeing what is an example of such a happy place get completely twisted into some crazy dystopian land.

The Conclusion

The rest of the DLC was rather average and pale in comparison to the glory that is Nuka World. It can be quite challenging as well with the way things are setup, but ultimately worth it to view this crazy place.

The scale of the world is also unbelievable and this is such a fitting end to the season pass. There are also just hours of gameplay whether you're moving through the core story line or just exploring. Be sure to get things running though as the rides are a ton of fun as well.

There were so many great little aspects in this one from decorative features to the audio around the park and you could see the love that was taken to make this place great. I really loved this whole separate world they created with Nuka World and if you own Fallout 4 this is a must have experience.
