Welcome Back to New Vegas!
With the introduction of the Ultimate Edition, Bethesda Softworks offers you the chance to double-down and get the complete package of New Vegas fun. For the first time in one package, you can get all the Fallout: New Vegas content including the full suite of highly acclaimed add-on content: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road. To sweeten the pot, you’ll be armed with the latest cache of unique weapons, ammo types and recipes from the most recent add-on packs: Courier’s Stash and Gun Runners Arsenal. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer of the Mojave or playing the game for the first time, you’ll find there are more friends and enemies to make, more consequences to your actions and more opportunities to live in glory or infamy throughout the Wasteland. The choices you make will be as crucial to your survival as ever.
Beyond the Wasteland:
The world of New Vegas is more expansive than ever. Each new distinct area presents a fresh set of branching-quests, remarkable personalities and more chances to play the Savior or the Pariah to the natives of New Vegas.
Shiny New Toys:
Each add-on pack increases the mountain of armaments already at your disposal. Whether you’re an in-your-face brawler or a long-range gunner, weapons such as the Two-Step Goodbye (unique ballistic fists) or Sleepytime (a handy 10mm Sub-Machinegun) will give that warmonger in you a chance to flex your ammo-filled muscles.
Room to Grow:
With each of the four main add-on packs, the maximum levelcap is increased by 5 levels, ultimately raising the ceiling to Level 50.
Lured into a trap masquerading as the Sierra Madre Casino, you are thrown into a high stakes game where you’ll have to work with three other lost souls if you want to survive.
An expedition into Utah’s Zion National Park goes horribly wrong and you become embroiled in a war between tribes and put into a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burning Man.
Old World Blues:
Transported to the Big MT research crater, you are enlisted by the Think Tank to save them from their own science experiments that have gone horribly out of control.
Ulysses, the original Courier Six, contacts you and promises to answer why he refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of Fallout: New Vegas, but only if you make one last journey into the treacherous canyons of the Divide.

Obsidian greatly improved on Fallout 3 with their release of Fallout New Vegas. They gave the game much better factions, a story that made more sense and allowed for more player choice, got you off to a fast start, Obsidian has much more talented writers leading to better dialogue, better quests, and better companions that you could interact with more, they added weapon modifications that improved the combat, and different factions will like you more or less based on your action or possibly based on what outfit you are wearing. For fans of the original Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics Obsidian also continues the Fallout lore in a way that makes sense with how factions work and how some of the mutants act, it also gives a much more fitting and interesting world to explore rather than just a wasteland with bombed out buildings. The game released with a lot of bugs and glitches but that's been taken care of and we are left with a far better setting and role playing game than the previous game gave us. The Ulltimate Edition includes all four of the DLC that was released for the game, DLC that showed that not only was Obsidian much better at making a base game but they were much better at making interesting and thematically different DLC. With the exception of Point Lookout most of the added DLC to Fallout 3 was heavily combat focused in cramped areas or just not very interesting, New Vegas gives you four very different locations each with a different focus. Dead Money has you in a dangerous area and Casino and has you learning about the place while working with new characters. Honest Hearts has you in a fight between tribes and learning about The Burning Man who was mentioned in the main game. Old World Blues has more of a focus on machines and humor. Lonesome Road allows you to learn more about the Couriers. Each is worth playing through and is a good or great edition to the main game.
Do yourself a favor and buy this. Yes the game is a little old at this point and the engine will be a little clunky. But if you can look past all of that you will find just how amazing a 3D Fallout game can be. The story of FNV is amazing. The game literally drops you in the world and and just lets you go on your own way. It never really forces you to follow any one specific quest or story line. It just gives you the start and lets you wander off. No game I have ever played is so good about building an atmosphere and world that feels alive. Even now, a good five or so years after its release, it can still amaze. I have hundreds of hours on this game and I still am discovering things. And, if you combine it with the wealth of mods available, you will discover a pretty much endless gaming experience. If you are willing to put the time in with this game and download a few mods to bring some of the textures up to date, you will find one of the most rewarding games ever made.
It's like an original copy of Fallout: New Vegas, only it has been beefed up several times. The player can now have up to 25 perks, reach level 50, obtain one/two new player housing(s), and wield new weaponry. Unexplored land is also accessible with separate and unique storylines which add more gametime. Unfortunately, unlike Fallout 3 (Ultimate Edition), there is no way to continue the game after the ending thus the addons must be completed before the final battle. I give an A- as Fallout: NV Ultimate Edition has all the content one needs to survive and enjoy the Mojave Wasteland. It is not a perfect game but it still worth one's time to enjoy.
One of my all time favourites - this game just keeps you coming back for more. The wicked sense of humour, the mix of old west and sci-fi goodness makes this series unique. Set in the Mojave, you are thrust into a warzone, free to choose your own side - but beware, everyone is out for themselves in the new old west. Gameplay is best in first person mode, and the pace feels just right - slower than FPS, but enough action to keep you going for "just one more quest tonight". Only issue is the bugginess of the game. Mods can add to the story or tweak the visuals - and they take the game to a new level. Fun, so long as the game doesn't bug out.
Seriously it's one of those games you can play through over and over and still have a completely fresh experience every time. Some people prefer the desolate vibe of Fallout 3 but the macabre humour and intelligent writing tip New Vegas over top. Highly recommend and with modding support it plays even better.
