It's a shitty walking simulator sold as RPG with unfinished gameplay and zero plot. Read forum's or Codex's review if you want the truth. IKR, shit happens? Maybe that sweet lvl 30 cap from vanilla F:NV wasn't such a bad idea? But if you maxed out all skills then they were useful for something? For a lot of things better to say. Anyway, you must pay Zenimax for 4 DLCs to do that and build your character and level him up specifically for that purpose, leaving everything behind. And if you max it all, then you're here for a treat. If you 200-300% every skill in 1-2, then you'd just waste your time. And you can avoid most of the fights and it's a good thing yet you still has to navigate through this world using your brain and eyes, not clicking on NPC sprite on a background scenery. And it's better than embarrasing Frank Horrigan from 2 anyway. Never said it was, the system just outgrew developers themselves. Anyway, if you want to see SPECIAL in action, go back and complete Fallout: Nevada.
