Ok. Let me get this straight. Some idiots built a town around an undetonated nuke. Some guy wants Ты to detonate the nuke because it's a "blight on the urban landscape". Looks like the fact that a nuclear explosion would wipe out and contaminate that very landscape doesn't occur to him. Then again, in this setting people use nuclear explosions to light up cigars, so maybe it's not that bad. A well designed quest!

Anyway, did Ты notice that the Статья does not mention any option to do something differently? One would think that Todd would have illustrated или at least mentioned all the options while playing through this quest. Something like "of course, Ты can blow a hole in Mister Burke's head instead" или "you can talk to the sheriff", etc. So, either these options are not present and the game railroads Ты или Todd doesn't think that these options are interesting / have consequences / worth mentioning. Either scenario is alarming.

Emerging from the Metro into the ruins of the old capital city of a dead nation, it only takes moments to realize you're in over your head. A swarm of mutants crawl across the old marble stonework ... when suddenly across the улица, уличный еще shots begin to ring out. Their powered armor gleaming, a squad of knight-like soldiers begins to drop your would-be killers.... offers for Ты to come along as she and her fellow Brotherhood of Steel members clear out еще mutants. They're heading your way, so why not?


A scripted event implying linearity. How exciting!

As the giant mutant turns its eyes on you, Ты pull the trigger, and the bomb hurtles over to the beast's feet. The creature crashes down in a облако of nuclear fallout. Slipping away from the surviving soldiers, Ты enter the NEARBY tower...


Looks like in the future nuclear fallouts are as common and about as dangerous as farts.

When Ты add the new and improved combat system, the missing father who plays a dramatic and prominent role, your 19 год old character, wasteland radio stations playing 40's and 50's tunes, drinking from toilets, and other exciting details, the only Вопрос that begs to be asked is "Was it really necessary to pay all those millions for the Fallout license?"
