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.

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!
In New Vegas, you are about to witness a vast world, with many places to go and explore. It's a wasteland, with lots of weird things happening. Many missions, many side missions, a big number of weapons to find, a big map to explore. It's an amazing game. If you're not familiar with the combat system Fallout has, you will get used to it, eventually, ... hate it. It's not the typical shooter system or combat system almost every game has. The graphics are very good. The story is lengthy. Fallout: New Vegas offers plenty of stuff. You will get yourself lost in the game. If you are sure you like how this game is, and you consider purchasing it and you find it on a sale, go for it!
This Fallout game was published by Bethesda but developed by Obsidian. This is important in that the rpg elements are vastly different from the fallout games delevoped by Bethesda. I am not bashing the other games, just stating that the experience you have with New Vegas will be totally different and open to many playthrough styles. I have 700 hours that I have put into this game and the mechanics of the game are such that mods only enhance the vanilla experience and are not really required. In fact I would not recommend using mods until you have played the game through once. At that point you should seek mods for the areas you would want them. The included dlcs in the ultimate edition are great in their own right and are very different atmosphere wise to the mojave desert. If you are a fallout fan at all and have not played this one yet it is on sale for the price of a foo foo coffee. Do yourself a favor and pick it up.
