5.0 out of 5 stars Great RPG, with exploration, March 30, 2012
This review is from: Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition (Video Game)
Now is the time to get this. Well almost. Since F3 GOTY edition is $20 retail, one would think this price will drop also. There will be a never ending argument as to which game is better, this or F3. Everyone has their opinion, but I can assure you this is a true sequel and not simply an expansion. As for the bugs, most of them have been worked out by now. (It's best to turn off auto-save in the system settings, if your system is always freezing up.) If you are familiar with Bethesda, then you're familiar with the pros and cons of their products. I've spent 70 hours on one character in NV, and it's been less glitchy for me than Skyrim.

The graphics and play mechanics are very similar to F3, but the game is very different. Instead of meandering through complete destruction, this game actually has scenery. The central Vegas area is operational and looks new. There are mountains, lakes, and even some trees. It's not lush, like Skyrim, but many complain that it's not the desolate wasteland of F3. There are a few true improvements however. NV has quite an involved story and set of side quests. There is significantly more dialog than F3, more weapons, and a better variety of places to call home. And most importantly, it's fun.

I feel that F3 quests were tedious, uneventful, and unrewarding. Most of the map areas felt barren and uninteresting. There was too much time wasted in subways, building rubble, and Rivet City. I feel like more creativity went into creating the world of NV. It's more of what I was expecting to get with F3. I even like the DLC better. Those areas are well designed and full of bonuses. Many F3 fans miss the post-apocalyptic setting, but I don't. I'd rather spend time in this world. The Lonesome Road expansion alone is better than any area of F3. The varied opinions and debates will live on, but FV seems bigger and better than F3, to me. Definitely give it a try.
