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!Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

Great game, I love when I find a seller that sells a stream code for a game like this at such a low price.Published 29 days ago by Steven Tarren
A very deep and detailed post apocalyptic world. Tons of missions to do whenever you want, or just wander the wastes enjoying the wildlife, and then killing them. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Jerry Brown
This was an amazing game, and the disc even came with a pre-order pack! I got the Caravan Pack, but it probably varies from disc-to-disc.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
