Wasteland 3 First Impressions

This is my first post in awhile personally, and there are a few reasons for that I won’t bore you guys with. Long story short I had a mild health issue that involved a ton of test that thankfully ended with me NOT having cancer. So big shout out to my friends for filling in where they could and you guys for your patience. (And apologise to anyone still waiting for any reviews)

With that out of the way, I managed to get a bit of time in with Wasteland 3 lately and I have to say I am amazed with how well this one plays. The PS4 version of Wasteland 2 is quite buggy as many people know and while 3 isn’t issue free they are minor and few and far between so far.

The game is graphically beautiful and the music amazingly sets the tone. The really big selling point tho is how well the game makes it known that your choices can and will come back to haunt you, and it really doesn’t stop you from doing messed up things. For example I killed a group of kids that I viewed as murderous traitors. At the time this seemed like a great idea, later when I had to deal with their psychotic parents tho, well it still seemed like a good idea but they pissed me off.

How you build your characters is also important. Don’t have someone that can deal with fixing machines and you may very well end up fighting extra turrets you didn’t want to deal with because you can’t shut them off. Nobody with an explosives skill? Be prepared to deal with mines and traps you can’t do anything about. It is however very hard to make a team that can do it all.

That being said the story so far is fun and I enjoy that I can mess with people during conversations. Best wishes and may the gaming gods being you glory.
