Experience all the sights and sounds of fabulous New Vegas, brought to you by Vault-Tec, America's First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation. Explore the treacherous wastes of the Great Southwest from the safety and comfort of your very own vault: Meet new people, confront terrifying creatures, and arm yourself with the latest high-tech weaponry as you make a name for yourself on a thrilling new journey across the Mojave wasteland.
Has lots of new content and references to the original games, but can actually become kind of boring at higher levels when you're trekking through the wasteland with 2 dozen high level guns looking for enemies to kill. It should've brought back more weapons from fallout 1 and 2.
I really enjoyed playing this game, and spending my time wondering the Mojave wasteland and touring the New Vegas Strip was what made it really worthwhile for me. I find the idea of a city virtually untouched by the bombs to be a great idea for a game, and the plot that surrounded it was great fun since it had more than one outcome to choose from.
I also found that overall the game had a great atmosphere, and the way in which the environments changed as you went from one place to another really made the game seem more realistic, since I feel that the weather cannot be the same everywhere in a game!
However, this game does have a few downsides to it, which was why I couldn't give it a 10/10 rating. Firstly, despite the game being a good addition to Fallout 3, it had so many bugs which were supposed to have already been sorted like that were in the Fallout 3 game, which meant that playing the game was sometimes irritating.
Also, the world was quite restricted, which prevented exploration, unlike in the Capital Wasteland where it was much larger and allowed to you to freely explore for hours on end, this I felt restricted game-play quite a bit.
My other downside was slightly mentioned already. Overall, despite the fact that New Vegas was made as a separate game to Fallout 3, it was so similar to it that you felt like you were just playing Fallout 3, but with a different look to it, it acted more like a large DLC package, which let me down slightly.
Overall, the game was really good to play, and definitely worth the time playing. Despite the bugs and small problems I have highlighted, the game is still awesome! I look forward to seeing another Fallout game in the future!
Better than fallout 3 in all ways.
Bigger world, more fun, more explosions, more quests and better story.
Whats not to love? Id totally be all for Obsidian making "Fallout NV 2" as they said they were interested in it. (Look it up).
Anyways, NV is one of my most played games, and i can spend hours on hours playing nonstop.
I cant simply wait any longer for Fallout 4.
Fallout 3 had a post-apocalyptic feel.
New Vegas has a wild west feel.
This game is so much fun.
You are a courier, "The Courier". An important 'package' was stolen from you and you need to find it and make the thieves pay. However this 'package' is more than you think.
Team up with different factions, create peace or create war.
In the end whose side will you fight for?
Undoubtedly one of the best games I've played, if for nothing else the ability to mod the game as we see fit.
I honestly would've resigned it to the bin long ago, but the modding community saves this game.
A fantastic game, only made better by such a loyal fan base.
