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.

After extensive hours put into this game on console i finally decided to get it on pc and test it out with mods and just the overall different feel from console versions. Basically for the quick review its fallout 3 with some improved mechanics in a even more bland looking world with some new places to explore. However with that said if you're a fallout fan you should purchase this game because even though it is more of the same fallout you love and for that I cant give it more than an 8

Fallout NV much like its sibling Fallout 3 if an FPS/RPG in which you play the role of a delivery boy in the Navada wastes.
After being left for dead delivering a chip you find youself being nursed back to health in a nearby town.
The story continues and you are off on your way throughout the wastes helping or hindering the populace and slaying mutant creatures left and right.
The gameplay for Fallout is incredible and is much the same as Fallout 3 so if you enjoy Fallout 3 this will bring the same levels of joy.
The graphics are splendid and should last another 3 or 4 years without too much degradation.
One of the biggest highlights of this game is the music, pulled from the early years of the 1920s through to the 1960s you will find some classics which add a great deal to the ambiance of the Nevada wastelands.
The overall gameplay can be slow at times but very rewarding all of the choices you make will affect the story and how it plays it and the way in which people interact with you. This attention to detail gives this title a great deal of replayability.
Overall a fantastic game and well worth every penny, the DLC's also add a great deal to the length of the game and if you haven't played Fallout 3 it is well worth picking up the GOTY edition and if you don't mind some jaded graphics the Orignal Fallout games which can be picked up as a bundle are worth your attention.
Unpolished, but a ton of fun!UltraJake | May 10, 2013 | See all UltraJake's reviews »
While many of the bugs have been fixed since it's infamous release, the game is still buggy. This is to be expected from any Bethesda (Or Obsidian) game, unfortunately, so you'll need to look past them. There exists a mod that fixes hundreds of bugs and errors all in one package, and I recommend looking for it on the Nexus if you are interested. But back to the game! Your character build can be whatever you wish it to be. You can be a Hulking idiot, a long-range stealthy character, and everything in between. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and for that reason I recommend the Wild Wasteland Perk for extra fun. I feel like they could have done so much more if not for the fully-voiced dialogue, but the game is much bigger than Fallout 3 when it comes to content. If you liked FO3, you'll love New Vegas. (Or not. There is quite a bit of debate when it comes to the two games.)

Fallout: New Vegas expands on it's fantastic predecessor with new features that improve the Fallout series. The most promising new features in the game include the new hardcore mode which, as stated, makes the game more realistic and significantly more difficult - great if you want to play the game again but want a different experience. Being able to modify guns and change the way you use them and the ammunition you use is also a new interesting feature meaning you can upgrade your favorite gun to suit your needs whether it be a better sight or a silencer. Overall Fallout: New Vegas is definitely worth purchasing particularly if you enjoyed Fallout 3 or just want to explore the Mojave Wasteland.

This game can take between 15-20 hours to go through the main story...but you'll want to do so much more than that.
Everything about this game ties back to the central theme of this desert post-apocalyptic world that you're trying to survive through. The soundtrack, the dialogue, the weapons, the world itself; it all creates a very whole and fleshed out feel that absorbs you into the world you're exploring.
The replay value of this game is very high because there are many different ways to play it. Without going into too much detail you can be a tank, you can be a robot's best friend, or you can basically swindle everybody into giving you what you want.
It's a great game and if you haven't given it a shot, you should...with a laser rifle.
