Enjoyable game, not as memorable as Fallout 3 so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
The game itself feels very similar to Fallout 3, which isn't a bad thing per se. Maybe it's the dated engine or the all to familiar mechanics, but it didn't feel that amazing to me this time around. While I'm far from completing the game, so far I haven't really got amazing quests, they mostly felt like the clichéd, go here, kill that (mind you that I am at the point in which I have to enter New Vegas, I often complete many side quests. I also haven't taken a look at the add-ons).
There are various game improvements of which I find the improved aiming the most enjoyable (now you can also use your aiming skills instead of always mashing the R2 button whenever you see an enemy). There is also a greater variety of guns and their special versions (which cost a lot, but do negate the typical problem of RPG's where you're carrying around loads of cash which can't be used for anything more than a health pack or a Stimpak in Fallout's case).
After really enjoying Fallout 3 but not enjoying the bugs that bringing over a character to the GOTY edition brought, I decided to wait for the Ultimate Edition of this in the hope that it would be more stable.
But alas, for me it was even more buggy than the original Fallout 3 was. Luckily it has also many moments of stability but once it managed to lock up on me twice in the time span of an half hour. Including the time it took me to reboot my PS3 and my save file...
All in all it is an enjoyable game if you liked Fallout 3 and I can recommend it on that basis, though content wise I haven't really gotten those special moments which stuck with me for a while. It does have it's gameplay improvements though.
