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.

If you're among those who though that Fallout 3 didn't really live to the franchise, then you won't be disappointed with New Vegas. You play as a courier that has the worst luck ever as you are ambushed by a mysterious man in a checkered suit who steals a strange casino chip you were supposed to deliever before he puts a bullet in your head, yet you manage to survive thanks to a strange security bot with a western accent that brought you to a local doctor who patched you up as best he could. Now you must find out who this man that ambushed you is and what is so important about that chip while at the same time helping others who are in plight, or just be a complete and total douchebag towards everyone. There are a lot of classic Fallout weapons in this game, including the awesome Power Fist that can turn a foe into mince meat if you land a critical hit. There are also some pretty good story DLCs that add to the game, the Old World Blues is considered the best of them all with its silly characters and weapons you can get. Also, there's plenty of interesting mods for the game made by the community and some might even add completely new areas that they've made. This is a must own for fans of Fallout or if you're the type of gamer who loves post apocalyptic games in general.

This game is more true to the original fallout games than fallout 3 is. If you liked Fallout 3, you'll like this the same. If you disliked Fallout 3, this solves most of the gripes you might have had with it.
Better writing, more interesting story, factions and characters than Fallout 3. There's a good amount of game to be played here (lots more guns, locations, vaults, characters) and multiple playthroughs are still fun because most of the quests have many different options and are actually pretty deep. Overall a much better game than FO3 and a fantastic one at that. The DLC is also nearly all very good.
Only downside is it it/was fairly buggy. Most of that has been fixed now but make sure you make multiple saves.

Taken from the site where i used to review my games to.
Where Fallout 3 started softly by born of your character and safe childhood in the depths of the vault. New Vegas starts by your character getting shot in the head. Nearby smalltown doctor patches you up and pretty much after that you are own your own. Questions rise up in your head, who shot your character and why?, and what was that platinum chip so important that you've gone through all this. Answer lies in New Vegas,but the journey is long and eventful and the game doesnt end upon your arrival to New Vegas, it starts there.
The world itself ain't larger than in Fallout 3, but it contains more to discover and there's always a monster or two trying to end your life. In Mojave's desert the recivilization is under rapid construction.
I found the best things in the game is the liveliness and realiness of npc's. Eventhough the earth is destroyed, it's filled with different sides with their own goals and problems. Everytime you journey to somewhere new, you'll probably end up having handful of quests that lead you to a yet another new location, it seems the exploration never stops.
Mainplot in the game consist New Vegas and the control of that specific area. Of course you are in the middle of it and will be the final judge to decide the fate of the city and the surrounding areas.
Engine might run a little old already, but game's content compensates this more than satisfyingly.
All in all. Gameplay is fun, you get to roam free just to shoot anyone or complete tons of sidequest to your liking with great storylines and npc's in a complex and harsh but beautfiful world. What more can previous player of Fallout 3 or even a new player wish for?
The Buggiest Fun You'll Ever Havefaerie241 | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all faerie241's reviews »
Fallout: New Vegas is my absolute favorite game ever, which is why it's difficult to assign a score. This game has an absolutely endless stream of quests to play through, and the world feels so alive and vibrant (a difficult task in a post-apocalyptic wasteland). In most ways, this game is a significant improvement over Fallout 3.
Why does it get a lower score if I love it so much? The reason is the bugs. This game contains an absolutely staggeringly large amount of bugs. Some are innocent, or even funny, such as when a group of people kept walking past the edge of a cliff Wile E. Coyote style only to randomly drop to their death after 5 minutes. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of nearly game-breaking bugs, such as corrupted save files, broken quest lines, and frequent crashes.
A few tips for playing Fallout: New Vegas from my experience: -Save frequently, and save on a new file every time. Saves get corrupted frequently, so you don't want to be relying on one save. -Turn off the auto-save feature. It makes corruption more likely, and also crashes your game a lot. -Be careful with the DLC. It can lead to frame-rate drops and more frequent crashes if you have too many installed. -When you need to ultimately pick a faction to align yourself with for the end of the game, since I don't want to spoil anything here, make sure you read about the bugs attached with the NCR plot line, as that quest line is notorious for a nearly game-breaking glitch (I've had it happen twice).
I know all of these bugs sound terrifying, but this game is really good. Even with the bugs, I do highly recommend you try this game, just take the necessary precautions with it.

I would describe Fallout: New Vegas as a game that keeps on giving. There's so much to do in it. Of course you can be good bad, or somewhere in between, but in NV you can truly be yourself, and there are all sorts of wonderful adventuring to be had... Like the old Fallout games, you can now choose Traits and use different type of ammunition depending on your needs. Also, the main story while not necessarily of the same caliber as Fallout 3, is truly cool and enjoyable. Hardcore mode is great for any gamer who wants a more realistic experience, and considering the apocalyptic/survivalist nature of the game it's a great way to play. Oh if you prefer the silly humor of the old Fallout games, try on for size the Wild Wasteland perk, you'll love it!
