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.
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 the small towns dotting the Mojave Wasteland to the bright lights of the New Vegas strip. 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 with consequences that will change the lives of all the inhabitants of New Vegas. The choices you make will bring you into contact with countless characters, creatures, allies, and foes, and determine the final explosive outcome of this epic power struggle.
New Systems! Enjoy new additions to Fallout: New Vegas such as a Companion Wheel that streamlines directing your companions, a Reputation System that tracks the consequences of your actions, and the aptly titled Hardcore Mode to separate the meek from the mighty. Special melee combat moves have been added to bring new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal”. Use V.A.T.S. to pause time in combat, target specific enemy body parts and queue up attacks, or get right to the action using the finely-tuned real-time combat mechanics.
An Arsenal of Shiny New Guns! With double the amount of weapons found in Fallout 3, you’ll have more than enough new and exciting ways to deal with the threats of the wasteland and the locals. In addition, Vault-Tec engineers have devised a new weapons configuration system that lets you tinker with your toys and see the modifications you make 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.
An amazing continuation of the Fallout universe.davidwijo | Sept. 2, 2015 | See all davidwijo's reviews »
This game truly has it all -- clever writing, exceptional gameplay, and somehow a true sense of right and wrong within the game world. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Having played all of the Fallout games, it was great to get to play through New Vegas and see some of the new storyline that was created. The multiple groups you can ally yourself with and the addition of the weapon modification system definitely allow you to play through the story however you'd like. You can be lawful good and help the up-start NCR bring order to wastes. You can be lawful evil, allying yourself with Caesar's Legion and grind the citizens of New Vegas beneath your sandal. Or, if you so choose, isolate New Vegas from both groups and create a paradise of sin set apart from anything else in the wastes. The additional DLC is most definitely worth getting as it adds even more background story to war that ended the world. Fair warning though, the DLC is catered towards players who have played through Vegas for a few hours and have leveled their character up to 20-25 or so. I would also suggest perusing the huge mod community before starting up, even if you prefer to play through just the vanilla game. There are several mods that will fix bugs as well as texture packs that add more spice and beauty to the game.
Trip back to Fallout 1 & 2 universekazekdoom | Sept. 1, 2015 | See all kazekdoom's reviews »
A fine game that's bringing us back to to world as known in Fallout 1 and 2 (as it was made by mostly the same people). Technically, it's still Fallout 3 engine, and the game is basically the same mechanically - there is still FPS & slow-mo VATS combat capability. But it's the storyline that deserves the highest praise - this time we play a courier who has managed to carry something too important for other people. But there is no clearly defined enemy - the world is living, and this time everyone has their own rights. There is no clearly defined good and evil, as opposed to F3. Also, the world is much richer than in Fallout 3 - it's alive, with inhabited cities, farm fields, enormous area of Las Vegas. And there are geckos too! To sum it up - if you liked older Fallouts, you should not be disappointed by this one.
A Huge RPG With Tons To Do and ExploreGeoffAussieSpy | Aug. 26, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »
What a great game. The gameplay is amazing, very nice and smooth, at least to me it is. And the story isn't all that bad. My favorite thing to do is just explore and survive. It can be whatever you want it to be, you choose what you want to do and there is much to do in this. You can explore and find little details of cool things and easter eggs. Find new monsters maybe and prep for a battle between you and them. This game is just absolutely huge and I can't explain it all in one review. I'll just say that you should definitely buy this and play through it. You can seriously spend hours playing it and not get tired of it at all. The atmosphere of the world is fantastic and the wasteland is gorgeous. Anyone looking for a cool game like this huge one, should get it. It's absolutely incredible and loads of fun to play.
Very Fun RPGpalmtreebearer | Aug. 18, 2015 | See all palmtreebearer's reviews »
Fallout New Vegas is a great game although very similar to Fallout 3. I liked the soundtrack better in Fallout 3, but Fallout NV has some awesome environments and a unique setting for Fallout games without losing the Fallout feel. The feel for playing this game on the PC is certainly much better for me than having played it on a console as I can aim a lot better with a mouse and on consoles I often just spammed VATS (assisted targeting) as often as I could but on the PC I feel that I can aim naturally more often. If you are a fan of RPGs you will probably enjoy this game. Also, when speaking you get to actually choose what you are saying, not just choosing a basic sentiment and hoping it comes out right like in Mass Effect. That is a nice feature and helps with immersion. There are a lot of RPG elements but the gunfights are as fun as any FPS I have played. There are also plenty of gameplay videos on youtube if you want to see a quick demonstration of gameplay.
