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.

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.
Truly a masterpiece of a game. A blend of shooter, classic roleplaying, and exploration. While to some this game seems lacking, as Obsidian, the primary devs, (bethesda merely published this title), had little over a year to develop it, resulting in many assets being recycled from Fallout 3. Don't let this fool you, though, there is much to be found in this game. You start out in a doctor's office (or more rather messy cabin). You find yoursefl thrust into a world of sand and radiation. The post-nuclear Mojave desert is unforgiving compared to the Commonwealth or Capital Wasteland. It is far more bleak, in comparison, but much richer. While there are large expanses of land with little content, there are many clusters of excitement scattered about. And another thing, this world? It doesn't hold your hand. True to Bethesda style, there are, after all, quest markers, but they do not mark the only way to complete many, many quests. Nor do they show the only way to end the game. This game has roughly 4 main stories, all starting the same, but all 4 ending depending on choices you make and alliances you form. This is not a linear story by a long shot. There are four major factions in this game, all with ties to each ending. There's the New California Republic, a government made in memory of old-world politics, corruption and all. There's Caesar's Legion, a band of slavers taking their inspiration from the Romans, who can seem evil or merely fanatic depending on your personal views. There's The House, the leader of New Vegas, who takes you on as his personal agent in exchange for many pocket-filling sets of caps. Then there is yourself. Why slave away to leaders when you can rise up yourself and shape the world in your image? NOTE: THE MAIN STORY END MARKS THE END OF THE GAME AS A WHOLE UNLESS THE GAME IS MODDED! While customization was a recent thing in the recent release of Fallout 4, there is a vast wealth of entirely different weapons altogether in New Vegas, making up for the lack of "personal touch". Ammo crafting is also available, where you can break down excess ammo into components for more needed bullets or cells of energy weapon ammo. Included in this game is also a special "Hardcore" mode, essentially turning this into a survival game, where you must manage, not only health and radiation, but exhaustion, hunger, and thirst, plus making the healing system much less forgiving, as stimpacks heal over time, doctor's bags only heal one limb, and more. On top of this, ammo has weight during Hardcore mode, making weapon selection more tactical as you must account for how many bullets it takes to kill and the weight of combined weapon and ammo. IE, Anti Material Rifles are a gamble, as the .50 rounds are quite heavy, but those bullets stop almost anything dead in their tracks. As typical of a game published by Bethesda, the game runs on the highly moddable Gamebryo Engine. At nexusmods.com/newvegas, you can find thousands of incredible user-made content to enhance or tweak this game to your taste. (I myself cannot stand an unmodded Bethesda title for more than the first day). With great (if rushed) content, solid gameplay, a memorable cast of characters and world, Fallout: New Vegas ranks up as one of my all-time favorite games, let alone my favorite Fallout and favorite RPGs. I cannot stress how much of a smashing deal this game is, even on full price, though I highly recommend getting it with all it's DLC for nearly double the content. On sale, this game is a true steal. Just be sure to do some google searching on your system and potential issues that may come. IE Windows 10 users may have stability issues without the latest version of New Vegas Anti-Crash installed. Truly, as stated, a masterpiece of a game, which I spend many of my hours with no internet playing.
