    There are a few glitches but even so, these do not hamper the gaming experience and if you're looking for value for money, than you have come to the right place my apocalyptic brothers and sister.

    The way New Vegas' story plays out is incredibly immersive, providing a real sense that you're playing a key part in shaping the future of the world. It's not a million miles away from Fallout 3 but it's big, crazy and very entertaining and that's all that really matters.

    More of the same in the best possible way.

    Fallout: New Vegas is difficult to classify. It is not really an add-on, because it tells a completly new story. If you love Fallout 3, you may as well cheat on it with New Vegas, no harm done.

    It's rather clear: Fallout New Vegas is everything Fallout 3 should have been. Well, in terms of freedom and storyline that is, since from a technical side, it's as disappointing as ever. All we can do is pray and hope for their colleagues id Software to lend Bethesda a decent engine - Obsidian couldn't do miracles with what Bethesda's coders gave them, and sometimes it even ruins some nice gameplay ideas like their crafting system. But in the same manner everyone overlooked the flaws of Fallout 1 & 2 because their creators were storytelling geniuses, Obsidian's work on New Vegas is good enough to make us forget about all the lesser details - except maybe the overall lack of challenge.

    Creatively, New Vegas gets almost everything right. Mechanically and technically, it's a tragedy. So, it's a simultaneously rewarding and frustrating game, the gulf between what it is and what it could be a sizeable stretch indeed.

The gameplay is moreI'm still not sure why this game is receiving such low scores. I see Fallout New Vegas as a vastly improved Fallout 3. The gameplay is more fun with the new iron sights, the story is more intricate and well told, the sounds have been improved and it's LESS glitchy than Fallout 3. Now... I really hate having my PS3 crash because of a game, and Fallout New Vegas has crashed my system twice now, but it isn't nearly as bad as Fallout 3 as far as stability. If it weren't for the occasional crashes and glitches, i'd give this game a 10... but all things considered, I think a 9 would be reasonable. Again, this game is better in every way than Fallout 3.

Maybe even the best i have ever had. It carries on everything perfect from fallout 3, and develops into an even better game. The story is one of morals, and the free will given to you throughout the game makes some unforgettable encounters. The addition of caesars legion is one of the best factions in fallout history, and the quests in the game make you come back for more. The faults do take away from the experience at times, and the fact they are using the same engine from oblivion which was out a few years ago is madness. But, this didnt take me away from the countless hours i have put into new vegas, and with the additon of the coming dlc, I can see myself coming back to new vegas allot. Gaming Gold! Expand

Yes this game is just a re-skin of fallout 3, yes it follows a highly predictable story that ends in a climactic battle and yes it lags freezes and glitches all the time. But non of that matters at all because you forget all about that and get engrossed in the first 2 minutes of play. It really does draw the characters importance and is an amazing game. Well worth the money.

    Here's a piece of consumer advice. You'll get the game, love it and play it. 20 minutes later when you die, and have to reload your save halfway across the Mojave, you'll want to snap the disc. Resist the urge and soldier on. Save often and explore! This game has 200 hours of play! Every minute is worth it!!!

    It's not as good as fallout 3, but still a decent game. The game is fairly buggy, but it works. Graphics are decent as per the usual. As shortIt's not as good as fallout 3, but still a decent game. The game is fairly buggy, but it works. Graphics are decent as per the usual. As short as the main quest was in fallout 3, this one takes that title by far. The map is not as big, and there aren't as many quests as the former game had. Still a fun game, and new vegas is an interesting change of pace from the desolate wastes of the series. The faction system took a lot away from the game, as opposed to adding anything new or interesting. Customizing your weapons is a welcomed addition, as is the inclusion of iron sights. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great game until you come to find that the game doesn't end as Fallout 3 with the DLCs, where you could continue playing the same player after you finish the main game. I really don't get this from the developers, it's just lazy and ridiculous. If you want to play any DLC you have to load a previous save file as if you have never finished the game. Freaking stupid.
