The 6th and final piece of Fallout 4 DLC has arrived! This DLC is not a workshop DLC but instead an expansion similar to the Far Harbor DLC. The DLC is priced at $19.99 and is avaliable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Here is ThisGenGaming’s review of Nuka World.
WARNING: There are spoilers ahead.
Nuka World takes place in an amusement park called Nuka World, as the name of the DLC states. The player goes to Nuka World via a Monorail system and is greeted by Raiders. The player eventually becomes the Overboss of the raiders and the primary goal is to take back Nuka World from the enemies infesting it. The player also has to work alongside 3 groups of raiders known as The Disciples, The Operators, and The Pack.
The player has to clear out 5 areas of the park. The first one is called, Galactic Zone. This part of the park is very much space themed with rides such as Nuka Galaxy, Vault Tec Among The Stars, The Spacewalk, Robco Battlezone, and Starport Nuka. I found this area to be my favorite, as there was so much to explore and the side quests made this area worth visiting. One of the side quests had me finding 35 Star Cores to claim a sweet looking set of X-01 Nuka Cola Quantum Power Armor. The 2nd part of the park is known as Dry Rock Gulch. This area is western themed and includes Protectrons wearing deputy hats and it ties in with a cool simple quest to help each robot with western themed objectives. This area was pretty small but it was still fun to explore. The 3rd area of the park is known as Safari Adventure and was a mini zoo located in the park. This area was my least favorite, as it was super confusing to maneuver. However, the quest involving this area was super fun. It involved a caveman named Cito and clearing out a Doctor’s awful creations known as Gatorclaws. Spooky I know. The 4th area is a Nuka Cola factory designed as a tour and is called The World of Refreshment. This was the smallest area in the park but the rewards made this area worth exploring. You can receive a beautiful set of T-51 Nuka Cola Power Armor which looks kick-ass in my collection. The 5th area is known as Kiddie Kingdom and seems to have been an area for smaller kids. This area included the headache inducing Fun House which includes mazes, treadmill floors, spinning floors, and the nauseating neon green swirl spinning room. The story of this area is cool though. You get to chase down a evil Magician who is deliberately creating Ghouls for his own good. There is also a 6th area which is the area you arrive to Nuka World in and its called Nuka Town USA. This area is basically the Player’s hub and has no enemies in it. Besides the main areas of the park, there were also side areas such as a Junkyard and Evan’s House which was based on a real life fallout fan who passed away. These were nice touches to an already great world. Although the world isn’t as big as Far Harbor’s world, it is still in my opinion way better. It didn’t feel like a copy and paste of the Commonwealth but instead like a small New Vegas expansion.
The Player has to work with the 3 raider groups to clear out Nuka World and establish a foothold there. You eventually get to form raider camps in the Commonwealth and choose which group owns each settlement. After that’s all said and done, the raider group you gave less areas to will turn on you. In my case it was The Pack. You have to chase them down to the Nuka World Power Plant, kill them, and turn Nuka World’s power back on. I felt the story was simply ok. Not as good as Far Harbor’s but still decent. I found the story of the quests you have to do while clearing Nuka World were pretty damn good.
Yep, this is a category. Nuka World has a total of 10 achievements. They are…
1. Taken For A Ride- Complete the quest “Taken For A Ride”
2. The Grand Tour- Complete the quest “The Grand Tour”
3. Home Sweet Home- Complete the quest “Home Sweet Home”
4. Power Play- Complete the quest “Power Play”
5. Eyes on The Prize- Redeem 100,000 tickets in the Nuka-Cade.
6. Hostile Takeover- Establish 8 Raider Camps in The Commonwealth.
7. Diebrarian- Collect Every Issue of Scav! Magazine.
8. Raiding For a Living- Complete 12 Quests for any Nuka-World Raider Gangs.
9. All Sugared Up- Defeat 40 Nuka-World Creatures while under the effect of any Nuka-Mix flavor.
10. Beverageer- Create 20 different flavors of Nuka-Cola.
I got 9 out of the 10 achievements. Wanna guess which one I didn’t get? It wasn’t number’s 1-4. I did complete the story line. It wasn’t number 5, I wasted 3 hours of my life playing in the Nuka-Cade to get 100,000 tickets. Wasn’t number’s 6 and 8. I did all Raider activities. It wasn’t number 7, I collected all 5 issues of Scav! It wasn’t number 9, I spent an hour exploring and drinking Nuka-Mix drinks while killing ants. It was number 10. I can’t complete this one because the last Nuka Cola Recipe “Nuka-Xtreme” for some reason the recipe book glitched out of my game and I can’t pick it up. I crafted 19 of the 20 flavors but can’t craft Xtreme without the book. My Fallout 4 progress sits at 99%. Hopefully Bethesda will release a patch soon. That was my only issue that I’ve had with Nuka World.
Overall Nuka World is an amazing end to a great video game all together. I have clocked a total of 5 Days, 19 Hours, and 4 minutes into Fallout 4. 19 hours into Nuka World. I give Nuka World a score of 9.0/10. Are you planning on getting Nuka World? Let us know in the comments down below. This review was conducted on an Xbox One version of Fallout 4.
