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.

Its not enough that you can kill every NPC in the entire game, steal all their things, and tipping over every Brahmin you see, but with the addition of mods almost anything you want. Granted its not the perfect game but its the closest to total freedom you'll ever see. With the awkward combat and buckets of glitches, the game has shortcomings. However, nothing can beat the feeling you get when you destroy the mother death claw. This game can be played beyond the end game and mods still surface after years of the release. Instant recommendation to anybody who wants flexibility and freedom.
A Worthy Title for Fallout FranchiseAndreasqiao | July 23, 2015 | See all Andreasqiao's reviews »
Fallout: NV is mostly similar to Fallout 3 and that is both good and bad. The good : - worthy of Fallout franchise - all the features in NV are still here - huge number of quests - terrific atmosphere - decent storyline - not a hardware demanding game The bad : - the graphics similar with original Fallout 3, no improvement at all - stuttering especially in outdoor You might feel abit like dejavu when playing NV but it is still a good experience. If you like Fallout 3 then most likely you will like this game also.

New Vegas is a great game...fun to play and explore. I preferred Fallout 3, but that may be because I haven't played all the DLC for New Vegas. The base game is still excellent, though with a slightly higher difficulty curve to start with than Fallout 3 and a new setting. The desert setting with a Western feel is a refreshing change, though I miss the ruins of old Washington, D.C. a bit. If you are the kind of gamer who likes to collect large amount of tiny things to craft bits of ammunition, enjoys searching for those far-between bites of food, or likes to make sure you get a good night's rest in game as well as in real life, then turn on the hardcore mode and take your best shot. Hunger, sleepiness, and ammunition with actual weight are the primary feature of the hardcore mode. No more pack-ratting! All in all, New Vegas is a worthy successor to Fallout 3.

Words really can't describe how brilliant this game is. It is a perfect example what an RPG should be and it's innovative in it's own way with it's unique approach to combat. I love it in every possible way and I've logged in 120hrs in it. It's a 60hr game if you take the time to explore the game and do all the side quests. It has one of the best sound tracks (no actually the best soundtrack). The radio plays classics all the time and I don't know if it's just me but it appeals to me a lot. The game never once felt boring and none of the quests felt like chores which is something the RPG's can suffer from. The game it's so much fun that I can't recommend it enough. I got this game for 2.5 quid on this site (2x) when it was on sale, on top of the two copies I already own but I would have gladly paid 50 if I knew how good it was. I played Fallout 3 before, it's predecessor and this is an improvement in every way. Fallout 3 is a brilliant game which we owe praise as it paved the way for New Vegas. Although it may not have the next gen graphics that are emerging from the market, do not, please do not miss out on this game. My only regret was not playing it soon enough. I own 4 copies of this game, gave 2 away to spread it's awesomeness and I own the Ultimate Edition on Disk and I have a steam copy too. That alone should tell you how brilliant the game is. I bought the ultimate edition for myself and all the extra copies on sale to give as gifts because it's just that good! I rarely do this for a game, but only 2 RPG games have managed to impress me on a whole new level, with regards to story, immersion, gameplay etc and this is one of them. Dragon Age Origins and Fallout New Vegas are my favourite RPG games to this day, and I've played a lot. So treat yourself to this experience because it really is worth it. I will say that if for some reason you didn't like Fallout 3, then I would not recommend this game (still yet to hear someone who doesn't like the Fallout series).

Pros: More choice. In fallout 3 you got a black and white main quest. And to be honest most of the side quests were like that too. In fallout 3 you never got to question yourself. Whereas in fallout new vegas neither the NCR, Caesar's Legion, or Mr. House could really be called good or bad. Cons: The world doesn't seem that alive. Unlike in Fallout 3 where every places you stumbled across would have some sort of story, in fallout new vegas most places felt lifeless and empty. Most small locations either had nothing of interest or were just completely boarded up.
