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.
Great moments, but not always fun.Robojeeves | April 1, 2015 | See all Robojeeves's reviews »
Fallout New Vegas lets you out to explore the world from the minute you finish speccing your character. You immediately get started sidequesting, looting and leveling your way across the desert wasteland to the highly exclusive bed of business and luxury: the New Vegas strip. One of this game's key features is the ability to become liked or hated by any of the various towns, gangs and military groups. The game offers you endless choices about who you want to ally with, how you want to accomplish a mission and where you want to go next. Most of the quests are very creative from a narrative perspective, but almost all of them boil down to fetch quests or dungeon crawling; which wouldn't be a problem except that playing the game isn't really that fun. The gunplay is designed to look like a first person shooter, but unless you are playing on easy you'll spend most of the game using V.A.T.S., which basically turns the game into a turn based rpg, along with some real-time running away so that your energy can recharge. Since you must level each weapon type individually, you won't get far by trying to use all of the weapons. The game expects you to choose one or two types and stick to those for the majority of the game, and there isn't much variety int the encounters. Also, the enemies will scale to your level which prevents you from feeling any more powerful after leveling up. Aside from the gameplay, however, the game is bursting with personality. From talking cowboy robots to the classy radio station hosted by Mr. New Vegas, there are plenty of entertaining characters and stories to uncover and the world feels alive despite the relatively drab graphics (which can be remedied with a few good mods). All in all, it is really good as an experience; I only wish it could have been better as a game.
A very broken game...GatsuRage | March 26, 2015 | See all GatsuRage's reviews »
When people ask me if recommend this game, I don't know exactly what to say...guess I will tell my experience with this game: The very first MAIN quest, where I had to defend a town from bandits.. the bandits itself went into T pose and they started to move back and fort~ also game had autosave and I forgot to save, so had to restart the entire thing from the start~ tho only wasted couple of hours, I can totally see what this game gonna be about if the very first mission is this broken.
Now, game's has lots of content, and I would say is worth the price, but keep in mind few points before buying it: ♦Very broken. You will find lots of bugs and stuff that will block you from progress. ♦Not made by the original developers of Fallout 3. ♦Super dated graphics... not a huge deal, but keep that in mind. ♦Animations not very well done, there were lots of games at the time this one came out with better animations.
So yeah, if you are new to the franchise, you no need to play previous ones when it comes to the story. Regarding gameplay is better if you see a youtube vid about it, but is basically very straight forward, you can shoot in real time your targets, or you can "pause" the game and select which part of your body's target you wish to shoot at.
score 34, below average game, it has lots of content, but is very broken.. like devs only cared to add stuff rather then to care how the game works, they only cared about put a game with "fallout" name and cash in....sad.
Not as good as Fallout 3, but still a solid gameMadDemon64 | Dec. 29, 2014 | See all MadDemon64's reviews »
If you played Fallout 3, you know what Fallout: New Vegas will be like. You venture out into the land, littered with irradiated locales and mutant wildlife, taking part in a story much bigger than you could have thought, and free to do what you want when you want. But that’s what made Fallout 3 good, and it still works with Fallout: New Vegas.
In Fallout: New Vegas, instead of starting off in The Vault, you start off in a shallow grave. This time instead of searching for your missing father, you are searching for the man who tried to kill you. In Fallout: New Vegas, you wander the Mojave, a welcome change from Fallout 3’s ruins of Washington D.C., and it looks glorious, especially at night.
The story, while not as engrossing as Fallout 3’s, is still fairly solid, as are the sidequests. Sadly, Fallout: New Vegas is glitchier than Fallout 3. Not game-breaking-lose-all-my-progress glitch bad, but there were some problems. However, they didn’t happen too often, just noticeably more than other games.
Fallout: New Vegas is a rehash of Fallout 3, but in a good way. If you enjoyed Fallout 3 you will probably enjoy Fallout: New Vegas, but if you don’t like games that reuse many assets from a previous game , then you should probably steer clear.
Nobody does post-apocalypse like Fallout does!TayburrFripper | Nov. 30, 2014 | See all TayburrFripper's reviews »
It is an Open World Post-Apocalyptic game set around Las Vegas with RPG and FPS The Storyline and world are extremely immersive. The character building is fun. the Combat is great. VATS is hit or miss for some people. I like it. could be better but it ain't bad. The Modding community really made this game something special as well as provides the fixes for the few hundred bugs in the game. Just be sure you go grab some texture packs and the bug fixes and whatever other mods catch your eye. You shan't ever be disappointed. Best RPG game ever. I can only wait for the next Fallout Installment with uncontrollable anxiousness!

Fallout takes you to the Wild West this time. I did not enjoy the setting as much as I did FO3, given the terrain is mostly desert and lacks the feeling of a ruined world. The writing brings back the wit of the classic Fallouts, but the main quest is unsatisfying unless you buy the DLCs/GOTY Edition that fleshes out the Courier's story. Gameplay mechanics have improved, and it seems though the devs took the popular mods from FO3 and took them to heart. That being said, New Vegas also has an excellent collection of mods, and are definitely worth your time if you so decide to pick this game up.
