Game: The Outer Worlds

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows

Star rating: 4/5

Rating: 4 out of 5.


Put simply, The Outer Worlds is the game that Fallout 76 should have been.

The single-player first-person RPG puts you, the main character, on the furthest edge of the galaxy in a quest to save a futuristic colony from being destroyed.

You start the game after being thrown onto a foreign planet in a desperate attempt to save your friends and family.

There are several outcomes with each mission you undertake, which gives the game a fresh feel and makes you feel like you are in control of your own destiny.

Your choices affect your character’s abilities, cut scenes, companions and ultimately the path to end game.

This foreign planet is filled full of interesting things to explore from talking spaceships to caves filled with alien monsters.

The graphics won’t blow you away but it more than makes up for it with witty dialogue and an easy-to-use combat system of slow mo point and shoot.
