Having fun with the game finally after getting through the boring parts early on and getting to grips with my initially gimped STR based character, but it's definitely not free-form in the way that Fallout New Vegas was. I fucking HATE it that I can't be the bad guy and that there is very little choice anywhere in the game. Basically you can choose to finish any given quest, or not. So far Ive only seen one optional side quest addition that, you guessed it, had really no outcome on the quest itself. It's a fun action/exploration game, and Im enjoying the crafting parts way more than I thought I would although the base building is cringe worthy and I haven't touched it. There is very little 'role' playing in the classic sense of the word, the game is more like GTA or Far Cry and it's not a bad game (apart from the horrendous first few hours) but it's definitely not a role playing game.
I have a nifty blue line!
