Rated 0 out of 10 by BammBoo It's almost here!
Im going to do this the same way I did with Fallout 3 to get the best and full experence. I play and beat Fallout 3 many times with differnt genders, differnt paths, you know just swiching up every time i play without getting any of the DLCs. Waiting for the GOTY to come out. Grabed it and was 10 times better playing with all the DLCs. I dont like waiting for 1 DLC to come out 1 at a time cause you play it and your stuck waiting for the next one to come out. Getting all of them all at once is so much better. If you a Fallout fan then you know what i'm talking about. I haven't got not one DLC for New Vegas cause i was waiting for the GOTY to come out so i can play all of them 1 by 1 without waiting. If you played though New Vegas without any of the DLCs, wait for this and trade in your copy for New Vegas UE. You will dump 100s of hours of play time. Thats only if you like to explore with out the book or going online for help. (Fallout3 is still my best game) Bamm Boo4560 (XBOX gamer tag)
Rated 10 out of 10 by atomicpacman Perfect game for RPG fans
For all those who love RPG's and especially the fallout series, this is the game for you. This game comes with all the DLC's, and since you save like $40 or 50% if you bought the game and all the DLC's seperately, you're practically stealing the game. The game has really adapted in attempts to improve upon fallout 3, including adding more sophistication to the apocalypse including the new hardcore mode and adding new ammo types that expands your fallout experience. The major pros to this game is the massive weapon pack DLC you get with this game, the over-powered weapons you can obtain, and the challenging enemies you will encounter.nothing is good without some flaws of course. The major flaw of this game is the glitches. Even with the updates, the game will ocassionally freeze completely and you must restart your system. WIth a single 60 hour playthrough, you should expect at least 10 restarts, because the game doesn't have a good coding structure. None the less, this game is a lot of fun and is worth every penny/
Rated 10 out of 10 by MisterGutsy Large Game with Long-Lasting Appeal
I would like to start off by saying that Fallout 3 was my favorite game of all time, until New Vegas came along. Yes it is true that Fallout 3 was more structurally sound than this game, but I personally found this game waaaaay more enjoyable to play. The graphics and engine are recycled and reused from 3, but you get added bonuses like a new, cool setting, the ability to gamble, iron sights, wider variety of weapons, four all-new DLC's, new enemies, armor, followers, MORE THAN ONE army to side with, etc. I would also highly recommend getting the Ultimate Edition for the fact that it includes all four pieces of Downloadable Content. Dead Money was nothing special, Honest Hearts introduced a beautiful setting, Old World Blues was a heavy dialogue but frankly astonishing piece of work, and Lonesome Road continues and finishes the story of the infamous Courier Six.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Yuusha Great game, but WARNING!
This is a great installment in the Fallout franchise. It has countless throwbacks to the classic titles, and a more broad yet sensible storyline that doesn't feel tailored to one specific path (i.e. Fallout 3 and finding Daddy to save the wasteland). Plenty of new weapons as well as some old favorites show up, and even some of the characters from 1 and 2.
But now time for the BIG WARNING: this game crashes all the time despite the automatic updates. Worst glitch is when the game freezes during a load sequence. No big deal, you say? Well it is because it will corrupt and destroy your auto-save forever, losing hours of progress. So if you forgot to save every time you start and finish missions, you're screwed. You can create a new auto-save after starting from a manual save, but still, unacceptable from such a big game developer. Great game, but you've been warned.
Rated 10 out of 10 by xTodesengelx Anything Fallout never fails to amaze me.
Being a fan of Bethesda since Morrowind, a friend recommended I pick up Fallout 3 and told me that if I loved Morrowind and Oblivion (and now Skyrim), then Fallout would be right up my alley. She couldn't have been more right. New Vegas to me was simply a more in-depth Fallout 3 and I still till this day will pop my Fallout 3 into my 360 and play it for hours. I got New Vegas shortly after I'd finished all the DLC from Fallout 3, and what I saw was a lot of improvements. While still having the huge free-roaming world, you can now aim down sights of your guns and your actions really play a part more so then in Fallout 3, and you can join factions and change the story and how others react to you based on which faction you do the most quests for. The story line was really interesting as well. I have to really give this game a 10, even though there are always bugs or funny glitches in all of Bethesda's games, it doesn't matter because they are still amazing. Both Fallout games are possibly my most favorite games that I own for my 360. If you love RPGs then I suggest you get this and Fallout 3 (Getting Skyrim also is a given).
Rated 10 out of 10 by NashSu Greatest Game of All Times
This game is one example on how to make a great game. First off, the map is huge and exploring it is fun. You can follow the story line or go off and do your own little thing. You can even pick which ending you want by doing the right things (like NCR ending means you are friends with NCR til the end, ect.). This game has no class because you can make your very own guy any way you want. If you like energy future weapons, you can train your guy to be the greatest energy warrior out there. If you want to be a sniper, grab a .50 Cal riffle and shoot some heads. If you are up for close combat, than go do that. Or you can sneak away and be a ninja with your kills. This game lets you make your guy anyway you want him to be. The best part is the perks on when you level up every two times. Depending on your stats and training skill points, you can get a special perk like silent runner or friend of the night. You can even have followers to help you out on tough locations. There is even a place where you can test your skills on the dangerous of monsters. The add-ons increase your level cap, gives you new perks, and items. This game will be another you if you were out in the end of the world.

I thought this game was going to be boring at first, but then I played it and it was actually really fun. It has a good story and you never run out of things to do. The DLC content makes the game a lot more fun than it originally is and gives you more things to do. The things you do in this game has an effect on the rest of the virtual world and decisions you make early on in the game can have an effect on things that happen later on in the game. It's much like real life. I like to start the game over often and make different choices to see how it's going to affect the world in the game. The game has a nearly unlimited arsenal of weapons to choose from and it's always fun to see which weapon does what. Everything is great and I'm looking forward to Fallout 4.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Charilie An open world.
An awesome open world. It's just better with the Ultimate Edition though. You need to be a hardcore gamer to get this because of how much missions there are. There are not a lot of Story missions, but plenty of side missions. I would recommend any open worlds like this one, for example - Far Cry 3: Can use drive-able vehicles, much better graphics, plenty of guns (less, but plenty) and it's also a open world. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City - Because it's also an open world, but with drive-able vehicles. But it has an awesome overall, all it can really use is graphics and to even make it better, vehicles. But if you don't care about graphics much, and you really don't care for vehicles, this game is perfect for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BReview A MUST PLAY GAME !
Fallout New Vegas is the latest in the Bethesda Fallout series and, Man is it fun, So many choices that effect your gameplay and decisions as to what you want your character to do or be. Plenty of shooting, Exploring, Missions and Side quests. The jewel in the Fallout series thus far. A serious must play. We can all only hope that Bethesda will do another Fallout soon. I have played this game from every angle and aspect and, Each are all as fun as the other with the pros and cons. You will become addicted to this game and, You will play it again and, Again. Easy to understand why I have over 1400 hours in this game. A seriously great game !!
Rated 10 out of 10 by freddy902 A Great simulator for life
Most if not all the things in this game you'll see even if you stay held up in your home with a TV as your only window to the outside world. so if you are like me and only feel comfortable playing games like Mario and Zelda and enjoy their game play. This game is really great minus the fact that it is set in vegas, that is it gory and has suggestive dialogue with suggestive themes. If you are the kind of person who wants a great game with a great story and allows you to question your moral standings than this is the game for you. Lastly (like real life) you don't have to partake in about 90% of the questionable stuff in this game to finish it.
