I'm curious. What did you not like? Was it the overall story or maybe the characters aren't that interesting? I'll post my mini-review on Saturday after I've seen a couple of episodes.

Yeah, most people seem to like it but as with anything some do not.

Just adding that FO76 is free to play for a week. This thread quickly turned over a new page so that might be missed.


No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!

I haven´t played the game so I can´t judge If the series Is representative of the game and how good It does on that. As a sci-fi series on It´s self, and as a adult viewer that I am, I found It a bit childish and overly violent. I even felt sad for the young viewers that would watch It. It reminded me a bit of some of the 80´s 90´s movies like Scanners, or Re-animator, they weren´t terribly bad for their time but not just quite for a mature audience In my opinion.

I just think that In 2024, there could be better sci-fi movies, but again this one Is based on a game, so It´s limited In what It wants to express. The story Is not bad, as a sci-fi story and hits some "could be" scenarios like the bomb, the vault and the cult but It´s presentation Is childish for a movie (representative of the game). I found the acting ok, In some cases a bit sterile or lifeless, but then so are some of the scenarios, so a bit sour at times. I found It light as a movie, with emphasis on dismemberment for Impact, typical of a class B movie. The protagonist does a nice job, not great but better than others, I like her.

I am at chapter 6 and It´s Is starting to get more Interesting now because things are starting to unfold which In turn makes It more serious as a story and overall movie. The actors now also seem to have more Impact on where and why of their doings/feelings. Will see how It goes tonight. Can´t say I am a movie guru so mind my opinion here.

Thanks for this mini review. I've played 3 & 4 but I'm an amateur compared to others here. I wonder if people who play it will find it better or worse from the playing experience?

Yeah, that´s the question... will I find It different after playing the game.

One thing Is for sure, They sure got the attention of those who haven´t played the game, because now I am curious as to how It will compare and will buy the game! Darn marketing!!! biggrin

Man I was having a good time playing Vargus, now I got side track AGAIN! I hate It LOL!

Cheers
