Fallout 76 runs outrageously poorly on the PlayStation 4, and the pile-in from somewhat petty fans is beginning. While the online nature of the release has ruled out reviews from outlets like Push Square until a later date, players are taking to Metacritic to air their grievances with the online-focused survival title. It currently commands a rating of 2.7 on the aggregate site after 381 negative impressions; that’s up from the 1.8 or so it sat at earlier today.
We’ve shared our concerns regarding the release multiple times, both during the beta and earlier today in some updated hands on impressions. Obviously we’re working hard to bring you a review as quickly as possible, but we wanted to make sure we were playing on retail servers before delivering a definitive verdict. As a preview, it’s safe to say that our reviewer Robert Ramsey isn’t overly impressed: “There are glimpses of fun drowned out by unforgivable performance and half-arsed online additions,” he said.
