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.

This is a great game if you liked the previous Fallout games. Runs more smoothly then Fallout 3 (Fallout 3 doesn't work well on Windows 7 and up). An added benefit is that it is a highly mod friendly, well "add-on" because it treats mods as such. V.A.T.S. is retained from Fallout 3, some gameplay variables have changed, and your companions give you temporary perks. Who will rule over New Vegas? The choice is yours.

Fallout: New Vegas is an Obsidian made spin-off of Bethesda's own Fallout 3. It looks dated, the AI has rocks for brains, the animations are stiff, the combat is clunky, the voice acting is mediocre at best, and yet it still managed to suck hundreds of hours out of my life. Go figure. Fallout: New Vegas, like all of Bethesda's open world game RPGs, has something captivating about it that makes it easy to ignore it's many blemishes. With this being a spin-off and not a true sequel, New Vegas doesn't stray too far from it's predecessor. While this certainly means it suffers from a lot of the same issues as Fallout 3, it's mostly a good thing if you enjoyed Fallout 3. But New Vegas isn't without it's differences, and among them are a more fleshed out companion system, weapon modifications, and a reputation system that effects how each of the game's factions treat you. Arguably the biggest advantage Obsidian's Fallout has over just about any Bethesda game is it's writing. Bethesda has never been very good with writing, and we've let it slide each time because their open world gameplay emphasizes freedom and the ability to make your own stories. But it's refreshing to have some of Obsidian's storytelling talent behind New Vegas, it really helps you feel involved in the world. So whether or not you will enjoy New Vegas all depends on what you thought about Fallout 3, and whether or not you want more of it. Maybe New Vegas fixes the things you disliked about Fallout 3, maybe it is just more of the same. What I can say for certain is I really enjoyed Fallout: New Vegas, and I think it surpasses it's predecessor. If you're looking for an extremely lengthy game to get lost in, Fallout: New Vegas is one of the best choices you could make.

I tried multiple times to get into Fallout 3. I always enjoy the bginning, but once you leave the fault, the environments are so bland and the characters so dull that I couldn't get immersed. it has nothign to do with it being barren, it was just uninteresting. I had been very wary of New Vegas until a friend told me that it was atmospherically and story/humor-wise more akin to the earlier games in the series. He was right. You're still in barren post-apocalypse, but there's something more invigorating about it. I'm interested in the world, I like the characters I come across and want to help the, and most of all, I care about what I'm doing. In Fallout 3, you were chasing your douchebag dad that abandoned you to take all the heat for him leaving The Vault, and it just made me not care about him at all. This time, it's about finding a gangster Tony Bennett that tried to have you whacked, finding out why, and restoring a sense of stability and safety in your life and the lives around you. Everything about New Vegas is more itneresting to me, and both games go for the same prices an even usually have the same discounts running simultaneously. I'd say that even if you didn't like 3, it's worth a try, and if you did like it, it's similar enough to be worth experiencing a new story within that world
Great game if modded.Camzo | May 9, 2015 | See all Camzo's reviews »
The game itself can be incredibly buggy at times and can be a bore, I believe that this game has a wonderful modding community that have not only fixed the various bugs and glitches in the game but have also made the game an entirely new experience. I'd recommend buying, but only if you are prepared to mod it.

Fallout 3 was a lonely trek through a desolate wasteland with scatterings of mutants and raiders. New Vegas fills that Wasteland with settlements and people, adds in a war, makes choice mean something and lets you gamble. Out of the two, New Vegas is much more faithful to the classic Fallout 2. It lets us move closer to California (where the series began) and meet some familiar factions in the form of the New Californian Republic. Storywise, FO3 feels more personal, but New Vegas seems larger. Gameplay, both are highly similar but New Vegas wins outright with a higher variety of quests, weapons and activities. Both should be bought but my preference remains with New Vegas.
