Description:

Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas.
It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves, and make more than an enemy or two along the way.

As you battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon drenched Vegas Strip, you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, special weapons, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare “winner takes all” and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3.

Enjoy your stay.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Feel the Heat in New Vegas! Not even nuclear fallout could slow the hustle of Sin City. Explore the vast expanses of the desert wastelands – from small desert towns to the New Vegas strip – and see the Great Southwest as could only be imagined in Fallout.

  • Feuding Factions, Colorful Characters and a Host of Hostiles! A war is brewing between rival factions that will change the lives of everyone in New Vegas. The choices you make will bring you into contact with friends and foes, and determine the final explosive outcome of this epic power struggle.

  • New Systems! Enjoy new additions such as a Companion Wheel that streamlines communication with companions, a Reputation System that tracks your actions, and the aptlytitled Hardcore Mode. Plus, special melee moves and real-time combat mechanics give you new ways to fight.

  • An Arsenal of Shiny New Guns! With double the amount of weapons found in Fallout 3, you’ll have more than enough exciting, new ways to deal with the threats of the wasteland. In addition, a new weapons configuration system that lets you tinker with your toys and see the modifications in real time.

  • Let it Ride! In a huge, open world with unlimited options you can see the sights, choose sides, or go it alone. Peacemaker or Hard Case, House Rules or the Wild Card – it’s all in how you play the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fallout: New Vegas - A Fallout Fan's Opinion November 8, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A little background and disclaimer before we begin: I am a longtime fan of the Fallout series, having played the originals many times. I was one of the doubters, the nay-sayers of Fallout 3. This review is written from the perspective of a role player who places emphasis on quality world building, dialogue and voice acting. If the reader feels that other aspects of a game are more important when determining its quality, perhaps they should take the following with a grain of salt.

As always, my reviews are spoiler free.

GAMEPLAY

For players completely unfamiliar with Fallout 3 or New Vegas, the engine is very close to other games that Bethesda (its creator) has crafted. In a nutshell, this means that after the introductory sequence, the player is placed onto a large, 3D over-world map. The player immediately has the power to go wherever they please, if they can survive. Hundreds of points of interest populate the map, ranging in scope from a little hole in the wall gas station years beyond use, to the ruins of a factory, or even a populated, rebuilt remnant of the Las Vegas Strip.

Combat in this game is primarily focused on projectile weapons, though for this release Obsidian endeavored to make unarmed a viable combat option. They succeeded, by the way; it is a force to be reckoned with. However, most players will likely choose either Guns or Energy Weapons as their primary combat skill. This plays out as a typical 1st or 3rd person shooter (by preference) during combat. Players new to the FPS/RPG hybrid genre will likely complain that their shots are not aligned with the crosshairs, that they seem to fly about uncontrollably. This is intentional!

4.0 out of 5 stars WHAT DIES IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS October 19, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The previous installment of the Fallout series, FALLOUT-3, was an excellent open-world Role-Playing Shooter (RPS). Although it suffered a far from...happy ending and most of the DLCs offered little more than even more loot and a handful of unique items, it was a game I greatly enjoyed for hours at no end and was more than happy to replay it only to follow different paths every time the story bifurcated. I for one was sure left craving for more and the Obsidian/Bethesda people were more than happy to deliver. Even so, true to Vegas mentality, they seem to have let their winnings ride...

The first thing that hit you in the Mojave desert is how...familiar this new world looks like. The graphics, which were excellent two years ago, are still very good - but they are no longer cutting edge. Besides some richer shadowing and somewhat more vivid colors, if there are any major graphical improvements since FALLOUT-3 I failed to notice them. Having said that, I must admit that I loved the skies, especially during sunrises and sunsets!

Although both the story and the location are different from FALLOUT-3, I was happy to meet old friends: the handy PIPBOY-3000, the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. skill system and the V.A.T.S. targeting aid. The gameplay seems to fit like a favorite old pair of jeans.
Character development has both acquired more depth (with the return of Traits which offer advantages but at a price) but also made easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Game -- Not so buggy for me October 20, 2010
By GK
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After reading some of the reviews on here I feel fortunate not to be experiencing the "bugginess" some other players are having. The game did crash on me, once, after about 7 hours of continuous play. It may have been a sign for me to take a break.

This game is chalk full of content. I find New Vegas to be funner and much better looking than Fallout 3. Also, the level cap has been increased to 30.

The developers really did a good job of organizing the game in a way so that there are many paths you can choose. I don't want to give anything away, but just know you'll have to make a lot of tough decisions. The combat system and V.A.T.S is the same, with the addition of new guns and gun mods (accessories for weapons, such as a scope for a rifle, etc).

I'm going to keep this review short and say that if you liked Fallout 3 or like RPGs in general, then you will definitely enjoy this game (if you don't experience any "bugginess").

I'm running the game on 'Ultra' settings using an ATI Radeon HD 5770 and an AMD Phenom II x4 @ 2.8 GHZ. At very rare times does the game slow down for me, but when it does it is always very abrupt. I would have rated this 4 stars just because the game crashed once and is rarely slow, but this game deserves 5 stars because while playing you can tell the developers really put a lot of time and effort into making this.

Hopefully they can patch the bugs up so that everyone can enjoy this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many bugs, windows version October 21, 2010
By Retro
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Review for the Windows version:
I wish that I had waited for a couple of months before buying this game. FO-NV shipped with many many bugs. Bethsoft says that they are working hard to release a patch that will fix the issues, but these things should have been fixed BEFORE the game shipped.

This game uses STEAM as a deterrent to thieves and even though this is a single player game, an internet connection is required just to install it. Once the game (and Steam) are installed you can set STEAM to the offline mod, but you will still be going through the STEAM program in order to launch the game. All game updates will also be handled by STEAM, so you will want to go online every once in a while to make sure that you have the latest patches. The game itself is killer. I love the fallout series and hope the issues will be taken care of in a timely manner.

In closing, I would recommend that you wait to purchase this game, read the official forums and only buy after the game has been proven to be stable. $50 is a lot of money to spend on something that will sit on your desk for a month while patches are being created.

Peace
