Yea, I've noticed that- not only are the actual shooting elements of the game functional, they are also actually quite enjoyable. For example, last night I had a pack of feral ghouls running at me. I managed to shoot all but one in real time before they reached where I was, and simply killed the last one in VATS as he was leaping towards me. Very satisfying, and it is nice not having to rely on VATS.
I definitely prefer the setting/ characters, it's all even quirkier than F3, which I like. I'm in the middle of the quest where you help a group of ghouls, except one of them is blatantly just a human of thinks he's a ghoul. Definitely raised a smile. I hope moments like this keep coming!
