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.

The fun wears off about half way though. The 30-level limit arrives very quickly. I hit before even starting the main game quest, and with plenty of side quests yet to complete. No more character growth combined with bugs that cause inventory items to disappear (e.g. keep an eye on any companions weapons when exiting the Gomorrah casino, even if you leave the companion outside.) kills a lot of the traditional RPG fun. There was no reason for such a low level limit, other than to sell expansions that increase it.
I gave the game two stars because it had its fun moments, but only two because it seemed like a quick, poorly done repackaging of the Fallout 3 code.
I have to say I think I liked it even better than Fallout 3. There was just something about the environment I enjoyed more. I liked the weapons and companions better too. The glitches could get a little irritating at times, but I always wanted to come back and pick up where I'd left off. Great game.
The biggest problem is the load times IF you collect a certain quest item. Each of the items for the quest use a different item code, causing the game to load slowly. if you have more then 25 or so, you're looking at over a minute load every time. to avoid, dont pick them up anymore once you've done the quest, or once you have obtained 50 of them.
This game is much harder then fallout 3, where you could play on very hard from level 10 comfortably. In New Vegas however, its still dangerous to go on very hard at level 30, as death claws are a 1-2 hit killer. Hardcore mode adds an interesting option, allowing you to choose an even more challenging game. Unlike normal mode, hardcore has ammo weight and the constant threat of dehydration, starvation, and sleep deprivation. Both modes are fun and can suit many styles of gamers.
***COULD BE SPOILER***One aspect that i didnt like was that you couldn't really choose more then one faction to stick with. Eventually you have to choose one. Makes sense i suppose, but i think it could have been done differently.
I have heard that there are many more bugs then I have witnessed during my playthroughs, but as i didnt see them, this game gets an easy 5 out of 5. Thus i advise you take into consideration this review along with someone's review who experienced a lot of difficulty with the bugs before making a decision. If your system has had problems with a lot of other bugs (in fallout 3 especially) this may not be the best choice for you.
As I began playing it I felt right at home. The game played just how I remembered it should. I enjoyed the thought of exploring and new location and tackling more awesome quests. I loved the new additions to the game as well like the greatly improved buddy system and the variety of ammo types you can put in your weapons.
Unfortunately, how it's so familiar to its predecessor is also its greatest weakness. It felt too much like a giant expansion pack for me. After playing the game for quite a few hours I started feeling like I had played the game before. The game still looks the same. Thats not a bad thing at all until you start running into the same glitches and bugs that the 3rd had. There is still very stiff animations, slowdown, game lock ups and whatnot. There werent any quest breaking bugs that occurred in my playthrough but the game just locking up on me made me too paranoid about saving the game and keeping a ton of them. I guess I was just a little disappointed that nothing was really done to correct these issues or improve the visuals overall.
Other than that, however, the game is still a joy to play. The story is great and the quests are fun. The improved buddy system I mentioned is probably my favorite addition to fallout. Your companion is usually very competent when it comes to slaying your enemies and the best part is is that you reap the xp rewards whenever your companion kills something. It makes it very much worthwhile to tag along with someone else and if you happen to find a dog in the world you can have the dog and your companion as well. Theres a lot of killing to go around.
The bottom line is if you enjoyed playing fallout 3 then definitely give this one a shot. You'll have a great time with this one if you can still look past the abundant unfixed technical flaws from fallout 3. If you didn't like fallout 3 then, first off, shame on you and this one will not convert you.
