Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition
This looks awesome.
I have over 150 hours in to Fallout 3 and still play it. I have seen all the videos and screen shots and am chomping at the bit for my pre order of this game. Im looking foreward to having to eat, drink and sleep for realism. The thought of ruling New Vegas is fueling my fire and I also look foreward to wasting many hours playing in the casinos. The strategy guide was invaluable in Fallout 3 and I highly recomend pre-ordering it along with your game as I did. The write up says it has twice as many weapons as Fallout 3. I still dont have all the weapons fom from 3 yet and that is just insane. I live in the Mojave desert and am looking foreward to playing in a somewhat familiar territory. If this game is even slightly better than 3 then it is well worth the money. I wish I had found 3 in time to get the lunch box edition. These guys have sold me on the Fallout series and will buy all future titles as long as they look this good.
True to its roots
Having played Fallout and Fallout 2 over and over and over again, Fallout Tactics a few times, as well as exhaustively playing and replaying Fallout 3 and most of its DLCs, I feel I know what Fallout is and isn't. Fallout New Vegas is Fallout, through and through. While some of the voice acting leaves a little to be desired, and there are typos in places, those are easily overlooked. The flexibility given to the player in choosing sides and overcoming problems is excellent. I also enjoyed the recurring references to earlier Fallout/Fallout 2 characters and locations. Clearly, a lot of time and effort was spent on FONV to ensure that it remained fully in canon while developing new canon, enriching, expanding, and enlivening the Fallout world.
Not for the Faint of Heart
I picked up the game from game stop about 12:30 on the 19th when it came out and was playing it right after it finished downloading on my ps3. when the game started i was a little anoyed at first that you can not make a more youthfull charicter, but i soon got over it. After i was finished making my charicter i rummaged through the doc's house picking up what i could. then i headed for the door. as i was leaving i was happley supprised that i forgot about the option of Hardcore mode, witch brings back the basics from the first fallout. such as waighted ammo, the need to dring water and eat food ect... some times anoying but over all makes for a harder and more enjoyable game expiriance. i played untill about 7pm on the 21st i reached lvl 17 the game was a bit glitchy like fallout3 but not too bad. there were some of the hotel casinos i was in that glitched black when walking through them, and some of the people didnt pop up right away but other then that i have had very little problems with glitches. the card game caravan is not for a normal player as it is a bit complicated but if you sit and read the instructions and play a few rounds you can get the hang of it fast. im a little disapointed that you cant play the craps tables. otherwise i have enjoyed the game verry much.
Unoriginal in locale but very fun and addictive
Fallout New vegas definitly got me into fallout again. I enjoyed walking up and down the strip gambling and doing side quest for people in order to gain a higher status with a faction. The only problems i have with it is that it is the third game to be in the california-Nevada area. It seems to make it unoriginal as it refers to the first game a bit to much. Put a fallout in texas, put one in Florida, i would even take somewhere like post apocalyptic Alaska! Also the 360 versions disk is WAY too fragile, im on my third. Overall its fun but i think next time they need to pick a different locale.
I Love this Game
What can I say I love fallout . Even when my playstation 3 would freeze in the middle of a mission I could have cared less, i love playing this game that much. I will admit that seeing that new vegas was glitching upset me at first and now that they have released a patch it is working a little bit better but still has some kinks to be worked out primarily (in my experience) with the followers. I am sure bethesda will get all the kinks worked out eventually though, it is a huge game after all. Hours upon hours of fun and an endless amount of missions.
History and Future
Fallout 3 was a fasinating game and I have countless hours put into it again after beating it the first time. If they make New Vegas anything like Fallout 3 nobody should be disapointed, unless you simply didn't enjoy it. With the game play nearly endless it's hard not to enjoy this game, for their really is none like it or at least that can compare to the outstanding graphics and semi realistic nature of the game. I am looking foward to playing this game for countless hours again.
Can not get over it
I have had this this game for about 4 years i beleive since its release and havent been able to leave it be it is so much fun
I was a fallout 3 person and it was great. New vegas takes what fallout 3 was and makes it better. However it is the glitchiest game i have ever bought. I can not continue with the story because when i try to enter certain areas the game freezes. There is no fix to it and beth soft is ignoring all forums that have complaints on it. Dont buy this game until it is atleast 50% fixed from what it is now.
Awesome!! only one flaw
The new Fallout is exactly what we've all been waiting for and even surpasses how awesome I thought it would be. It is fun and VERY addicting. My only problem with it is that there are a few glitches which will stop you from completing some side quests and can have a tendancy to freeze your system. Having that said I still feel that it is well worth it for the amount of hours of entertainment you will have.
THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
This game is awesome, yea there may be a few lag moments, but this game is still awesome. I think anyone and everyone who played and liked fallout 3 and was addicted to it like i was should get this not the collectors just the game. I always get the collectors or hardened edition of stuff so thats why i got this, but this game is awesome and if your an open world or hardcore gamer this is for you.
