Excellent Replay Value,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
There are many detailed reviews, so I shall try to keep it brief.
For me, what makes the Bethesda games great, is the "sandbox" or open world element to the games. The freedom to travel pretty much where you want to, undertake and fulfil quests in whatever order you wish.
Whilst railroading in story driven RPG games can be a useful tool for a story, the thing I enjoy about a sandbox environment is the huge amount of player choices available, plus the feeling that your character is always central to the story. Whilst there are many stories in Fallout: New Vegas and the included DLC packages, the vast array of choices as to how and when you complete them, makes each play through of the game feel different.
Customisation is also a key element to games like these. Use any individual weapons and armour you find, or any combination. Shape your character attributes in any number of ways, which will also lead to countless different ways you can interact with the game world, plus how it and the characters within, react to your character.
Fallout: New Vegas is a true modern gaming classic, in every sense of the word.
