If you’re looking for a Fallout 4 Review, then unfortunately, you might need to wait for a while. As mentioned in the article about the Fallout 4 Release Date, the latest installment of the Fallout series should not be released before October 2013.
With Bethesda Softworks releasing the video game Dishonored in 2012, and will release The Elder Scrolls: Online in 2013, Fallout 4 will probably be released in late 2013, or even in 2014.

Fallout: New Vegas, looks and plays exactly the same as Fallout 3. But the additions that Obsidian have made push the survival angle even further to provide a much more immersive and authentic experience, and just like its predecessor New Vegas proves to be a role-playing masterpiece.
