Review after the Fallout of New Vegas' release.....I'll get my coat,
This review is from: Fallout: New Vegas (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Just managed to get this and haven't put it down. I come from a gaming background where I don't tend to like RPG games, unless they aren't serious, like Fable, but there's something about Fallout which is addictive. The mojave wasteland is great, the desert setting is much more pleasing to the eye than the capital wasteland. There is so much to do and so many places to go, equipment to collect, people to meet, things to kill etc. The feeling of discovering a new place and then finding some kick ass equipment there is great.
The Vegas strip is cool, and it's a nice contrast to exploring the wastes. It lights up at night and can be seen from far away, which is a nice reminder of the scale. You can so everything you'd expect there with your hard earned caps.
The story is not bad, and there are hundreds of side quests. The amount of time you can spend in the wasteland is ridiculous, this game will last you months, unlike most nowadays, which are tiresome after a week.
I do have to comment on the bugs and performance, this is the only reason I cannot give it 5 stars, there are more bugs in this game than in the amazon, and the game clearly pushes the 360s RAM to the limit, which will affect the load times and jerkiness of the game.
For the price, I can't see why anyone should hesitate. Fantastic game
