Description:

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Fallout! 22 Oct. 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fallout New Vegas is kind of a hybrid between Fallout 3 (made by Bethesda) and Fallout 1 and 2 (Black Isle). Basically the brains behind the latter are using the engine of the former.

This is a very good thing.

All the Fallout games are a bit special. My personal favourite was Fallout 3, as I like free-roaming, and found the turn-based nature of Fallout 1 and 2 a bit restrictive. However, some fans of Fallout 1 and 2 thing Fallout 3 is a travesty. So here, finally, we get the look and feel of Fallout 3, but with the plot detail of Fallout 1 and 2.

Well, thats what I imagined anyway. When I actually installed it this morning (took about 20 minutes) I was pleasently surprised to see that it looked exactly like a slightly more colourful version of Fallout 3. If you played and loved Fallout 3, but were a bit disappointed with the expansion packs, then you will be delighted with this. Its like a whole new Fallout 3. Loads of new quests, loads of levelling up to do, loads of locations to explore (at least 125) and a wasteland to get lost in.

The only thing missing is a grappling gun. Sorry, but I have been playing Just Cause 2 to death recently, and have got used to a grappling gun. If I could zoom around the Wasteland with a grappling gun then I think I might just wet my pants.

This game uses Steam. Personally I like Steam. But if you don't like Steam, bear this in mind that you will need an active internet connection to activate the game. Once installed, just use Offline mode, if you hate steam, but, as I said, I actually like it.

A brief peek at the Steam achievements for Fallout New Vegas reveals the following:

Achievement: The Boss - reach level 30.
Achievement: Master of the Mojave = discover 125 locations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great potential, reasonable game, too many bugs 1 Jan. 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a fan of Fallout since the original, I can't help but have high expectations of Fallout New Vegas. As such, after a complete playthrough, I find myself left with mixed feelings about this entry into the Fallout saga.

First the good points - the game is visually & audibly enjoyable, with reasonable graphics from what is otherwise a very dated engine. The game retains all of the dark humour of the original two games, and manages to not take itself too seriously. The landscape, quests, and political faction makeup of the game are all huge & sweeping. This is not a game to complete quickly. The voice acting, depth of character development, and overall 'feel' of the Mojave desert leaves you with a very immersive experience. Like the games before it, New Vegas does capture the Wasteland feel.

The skills & perks system returns and is done well - there are fewer perks that feel pointless and almost all of the skills will have validity to pursue. Praise is especially due for the attempt at a political faction system in the game, although it is extremely primitive and I hope that future efforts refine handling of reputation to be more precise (such as if one wipes out a camp and leaves no witnesses, why would anyone else know about this?)

All that said, and NV remains a pretty good game, it feels like they could have done so much more with it. Top of the list are bugs - lots of bugs. The latest patches have resolved some absolutely critical ones (like saved games mysteriously deleting themselves) but ultimately, this is a Bethesda game on a Gamebryo engine written by Obsidian, and the lack of proper QA in all three shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post Holocaust Cowboy Using Energy Weapons 22 Oct. 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fans of Fallout 3 will not be disappointed by this game, but it's got a slightly different feel and more colourful graphics. Add to that the addition of more factions to side with or fight with and Bethesba have produced another winner IMHO, with replay opportunities aplenty.

If you've never played Fallout before but your a big fan of story based rpg's like Mass Effect, Dragon's Age etc, then you'll enjoy the storyline behind this game I think. New Vegas has a nice atmospheric world you can lose yourself in for a few hours a night. You're the hero in your own story.

You want more info?

Think about every cowboy film cliche you've ever seen, combine that with a post nuclear world, add some gambling games (you can play various gambling mini games), some 1950's 'future tech', some 50's radio music, and that just about summarises this game. However it's so much more than this, but you get the gist.

Like a traditional cowboy movie, you can be the cold hearted mercenary gunslinger, or the mysterious stranger saving town after town from the local bad guys, or something in between. Unlike some other rpg's Fallout is very open ended, choose your own path and face the consequences.

I could rave about this game all day (I'm full of that new relationship lurv tingle) but I will try and be brief:
-If you liked Fallout 3 get this game.
-If you like rich, well versed, open ended rpg games where there is no linear path, and you can go wherever you want, when you want (with consequences) get this game.
-If you fancy yourself in the wild west, set in the future after a nuclear holocaust, with some of the best first person shooter action ever, GET THIS GAME!
