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.Read full description

After playing Fallout: New Vegas for about 60 hours, I find that I like this game than the fourth part. And it's not that Vegas is more refined and free from bugs that Bethesda has served us in the latest installment. The game is just more interesting, has more interesting missions, more elaborate dialogue not to mention the better system of relationship between the characters. Overall the game is simply amazing and many people wish that Fallout 3 was this game.
New Vegas is the best Fallout, which came out from Bethesda's hands. Obsidian Entertainment did a really great job with this game. Of course, there are some little bugs, but they don't influence the gameplay. The second disadvantage is graphics - it looks obsolete and doesn't impress. But after few minutes you get used to it and it is okay. There is a great storyline, every choice has an impact on the world in the game. You can do something and regret this 3-4 hours later. The game world is amazing. How it reacts to your decisions, how it is designed. You can really feel the post-nuclear climate. New Vegas is great - with some gangs, political groups etc fighting with each other for a power. I recommend this game to every RPG fan!
I love this iteration of the Fallout franchise. To me, the gameplay is the perfect blend of fun, and replayability that most modern RPGs (Fallout 4 included) just don't have. And the story... Worlds more compelling than the "rescue my family or parts thereof" that both Fallout 3 and 4 have fallen into. The setting is also perfect for a post-apocalyptic video game. Here it IS a giant sandbox. Literally. With giant radioactive scorpions! And you have a dusty old .357 magnum and a handful of bullets... RUN! True to all modern RPG games, however, this one is plagued by bugs, and sometimes feels repetitive. Most notably, is the infamous CTD, which randomly pops up when you least expect it (and as far from your last save as possible. Murphy's law in action). The gameplay overawes most of the flaws, as combat is much more varied and has many more enemies than it's predecessor. Enemies still feel like a bullet sponge sometimes, but this style of game would be rendered unplayable if real life ballistics were employed. Shops are well placed. The AI is much better and sometimes appears to try and use tactics, rather than stand in a line or come straight at you... Buy this game on sale, and you won't be disappointed.
If Fallout 3 was popcorn, then Fallout: New Vegas would be buttered popcorn. If Fallout 3 was cake, Fallout: New Vegas would be the icing on the cake, plus the cake of course. Fallout: New Vegas is to Fallout 3 what Dragonborn is to Skyrim, improving on almost all of its aspects. If you enjoyed Fallout 3, then you will love Fallout: New Vegas, and want to play it again when you're finished. Do yourself a favour and get it as soon as possible.
I started off bad with this game. I liked shooters, and the cover had a guy with a gun in his hand, so an uncle bought this for me. Now, at first, i really didn't know what to do here. I died all the time, killed by flying buds, that ate more ammo than a town full of people(i probable should't shot them as well). I gave it away, than tried it a few years later. I had to really mature, to enjoy this. The gunplay isn't call of duty level, but the way you can influence the story, and actually explore the world can be rather addictive. A played this game through 3 times. Would done more times, but it's rather long!
