I find it interesting and frustrating in equal measure.

The writing is fun.
The ally powers are fun.
Traveling between worlds is fun.
And it mostly feels like Fallout 3/4 in a good number of ways.

But... I miss the history of Fallout. (No brotherhood of steel. No red rocket. No super duper mart.)
I miss the higher quality weapon animations from fallout.
I miss some of the world of fallout. (Outer Worlds often feels like “not-fallout”)
Oddly enough, I miss the look of fallout. (Outer worlds is kinda ugly, I think...)
Maybe, mostly I miss the sorta real world cities of fallout. So far, no area has been bigger than maybe a few hundred meters across and everything has been very sparsely populated. I miss Washington DC and Boston because they felt far bigger and far more real.

Oh... and I miss my fallout 4 power armor. It was a lot of fun.

So... it’s both fun and a little 1st effort / lower budget. I “bought it” (through game pass) mostly as a refutation of Fallout 76’s online only mess. I’m satisfied, happy even, but I also kinda wish this was already The Outer Worlds 2 or something...
