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.

The title above is not a joke !!...Proceed on your own risk.
During my many years of gaming, I've learned some "facts", and one of them is this: The guys at Bethesda really know what they are doing, they make the best Role Playing Games (RPGs). The "Fallout" and "The elder Scrolls" series prove this statement.
The "Fallout" games have their own unique atmosphere, the post-nuclear open-world wasteland, and they have established it as a standalone genre.
The last addition to the fallout series, Fallout: New Vegas, is the tip of the iceberg to these games. Here are some of the things you'd expect from this wonderful game:
- The game has a unique atmosphere that makes you really feel like you are living in a post-nuclear wasteland.
- Hundreds of gameplay hours and diverse quests.
- Replayability of the game.
- The Decisions and actions you make really affects and alters the outcomes of the game.
- Hundreds of believable characters, each with his own mindset and story.
- A lot of guns, armors and other items, each with it's own characteristics that make them unique from each other.
- A crafting system and a bunch of drugs and medical supplies, each with it's unique benefits and side-effects, and there is the risk of addiction.
- the environment affects the player, especially when setting the difficulty of the game on hardcore. these effects includes the need for sleep, thirst, hunger, irradiation.
- Multiple enjoyable radio stations with music and ongoing news that change as new events happens in the game, including some news about your quests and deeds in the wasteland.
- Very generous modding community with thousands of mods, ranging from esthetics to semi-DLCs addons with new guests and plots.
I'm sure I didn't cover all the good aspects of the game and didn't give it it's true appreciation, because it really requires you to play the game to really understand it's value.
The only bad thing I found in this game was it's rather outdated textures, but even that is solvable with mods like NMC's texture pack and EVE (essential visual effects) you get a cutting edge graphics and visual effects.
In a simple word: MASTERPIECE !!

Fallout New Vegas is another proof that Bethesda knows how to create games.
The mechanics are simply quite similar to Fallout 3 but some are really fun to play like maximizing luck skill when you start and go to downtown and win tons of money from gambling at level 1 and doing quest with ease :) .
The game has bugs but are very rare. The errors can mostly be corrected with console commands. Fallout New Vegas has quite nice graphics and a bit more colorful unlike shadier graphics of Fallout 3. The graphics does its job very well enough combining with gameplay to drag you into his story.
And now we have come to the gameplay part. This cant be described but can only be lived. So first i shall tell you that you should try this game under any circumstances even whatever i said was enough to attract you because nobody can describe this games amazing RPG material and the feeling of this game.
The factions in the game and a lot of places to explore ( by that i mean A LOT, TONS OF) gives it a high replayablity function. You finished the game with republic? Then go on and try legion. Oh you finished with it too? Why u no capture New Vegas all alone by yourself and be the king? Or maybe you wanna be the henchman of someone? No worries we have it too. In the game there are lots of characters and each character is very well designed and reacts to your actions realistically. The best part of the game is its hardcore mode. The best thing that happened to me in my gaming life. With hardcore mode you dont only have human or animal enemies but also time is ticking against you too. You gotta find food, water; you gotta get enough sleep and when you are exposed to radiation you gotta patch yourself up. At first the effects arent that big you lose some stats but when it reaches max point you die. Unfortunately the karma doesnt have much effect in gameplay like fallout 3.
Also I'd avoid Courier Stash and other weapon DLC which give you good weapons for the beginning of the game. They make the game so easy.
NOW GO AND PLAY OR NEVER KNOW WHAT THE BEST RPG FEELS LIKE
Still one of the best modern RPGsZaggeta | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
Even with the outdated graphics, New Vegas is an unmissable RPG classic. While Fallout 3 transitioned the series into the modern era, New Vegas takes it back to its story routes.
While Fallout 3 was a somewhat lonely hike through the Capital Wasteland, New Vegas is a vibrant wild west shooter. There are a lot more side activities to do, such as gambling and faction tasks.
With multiple choices in the main quest, New Vegas also possesses major replay value. A definite must-buy for any RPG fan.

Fallout: New Vegas is a game set in Post-Apocolyptic New Vegas. One thing that I LOVE about this game is the setting, it's very different from Fallout 3, everywhere you go you don't get rads and some of the water is drinkable! Now the main story of the game is, you are a courrier a courrier who was shot shot in the head. A robot came and dug you up and some docter fixed you, now you are looking for the man who shot you. Along the way you meet new friends, and new enimes. There are also different factions you can help, or not help. Some factions don't like it when you help others, such as New California Rebuplic doesn't like the Legion and Legion doesn't like the NCR. There are also minor factions that don't auctally need to be worried about. Another thing I like about this game is the freedom, as with Fallout 1, 2 and 3 it's open world and there is allot to explore. One of my favorite things to do is just roam around the map, looking for loot, new locations and quests. And the quests don't really feel like a chore, the quests are auctally fun! I found myself wanting to do the side quests more than the story it's self, which the story isn't bad but allot of the side quests tell very amazing stories too. The characters you meet are also fantastic, when you talk to someone you auctally can feel like they have their own personality thanks to nice voice acting most of the time So let's talk about DLC, There are 4 DLC add-ons and personaly I didn't really enjoy them as much as the Fallout 3 DLC. Honest Hearts was okay. Lonesome Road was awesome auctally. Dead Money was alright. and Old World Blues was awesome. In Fallout 3 I loved each DLC, but don't let that turn you away from the DLCs because they are all worth buying. Sadly enough, I was not aware that all of the DLC is $22 so I just bought the normal edition, wish I wouldn't have done that... This game kind of buggy luckily the modding comunity can fix that for you! There are some great mods from, Texture mods to compainion mods to quest mods, I mods. Anyways this game is deffinitly worth the money but like I said BUY THE ULTIMATE EDITION. Thanks for reading, and don't forget to enjoy your stay!

Already 40+ hours in the Mojave and I must say this is a blast to play. The gameplay is really good. The Hardcore needs are neat. With a few mods from the Nexus and a ENB, the game looks gorgeous. This is my first Fallout Game. Now I'm looking forward Fallout 4! :D
