Starts out like that but you'll get bored wandering around looking for things to do after a while. There will be areas of the map which are absolute no go areas for you. The level of enemies in the Eastern areas is obscene and you can burn through most of your ammo in a relatively short fight. Even at level 50, with 50 weapons the bit in the middle is an absolute slog.Further to my last, I've played a bit more on Fallout 76, and I have to say I'm actually enjoying it for what it is - an extremely cheap Fallout game with a lovely (and immense) looking map to wander around and shoot or thwack things in the head with a Hatchet. I am giving the multi-player side of things a bodyswerve as I'm not really sure how to play best with other people in a Fallout game yet - and I'm still way too underleveled to feel comfortable offering much help in the Event missions that keep popping up.
I had a swatch at the lore video that introduces the Brotherhood of Steel to Appalachia and it was fairly decent.
I just got sick and tired of spending a whole hour of gaming bouncing round the map having to scavenge screws to repair or upgrade my weapons, find bits to increase the security for my CAMP and then having to go scrounging for bullets after scrounging for screws. Repeat ad nauseum. I could honestly spend two hours playing it and only 30 minutes of that would be actually doing quests or events.
