Summary: I love the Fallout games all the way back to the original. This one came up short though in many ways. I feel they tried too hard to create real life scenarios where one must upkeep gear, cook food and medicine and reload bullets. For game play this was too tedious.
An ok game, but nothing more. Small, limited, and discountable, when compared to FO3.

Summary: A small, seemingly unimportant main storyline, a map with largely the same desert terrain over and over, no real 'goodies' to be found via exploration, little few iconic landmarks or locations. On the whole, just a shallow, almost meaningless world and story.
Summary: Since this did not ship directly from newegg I cannot fault their efforts... but the company packaging should be better than it was...
Pros: Outstanding game...
Cons: Case when arrived, was shattered into a dozen pieces... The game itself did not appear to be damaged, but the artwork (DVD Sleeve) was torn and ripped... the game was only wrapped in a paper packaging (NOT a blisterpak) and failed to survive UPS handling...
Summary: I'm NOT a gamer and only enjoy the occasional first-person role-playing game when the game is very good. Fallout 3 I finished quickly then went back to make sure I'd played all the scenarios. Fallout NV...meh, not so much. People have commented how Fallout NV isn't as "dark" as Fallout 3.
Summary: Special edition... Okay. I guess. Granted, there's a lot here, but the comic was sorta cryptic until I played the game, the chips are sorta just there, the bonus disk was alright, and the Platinum chip replica was alright, I guess. Still, I got a pack of cards out of it :D Hah, just kidding.
Summary: My PC runs Windows 7 and is specifically built for graphics/gaming. I've played many other games flawlessly without a crash. I can only play Fallout NV for an hour or so before it crashes. There's a lot of lag and stuttering. I'm not the only one having this problem- many have been reported.
Summary: Having played Fallout 3, I looked forward to New Vegas for some time. The game feels like a very large expansion of fallout 3 set in the desert rather than the DC area. It's more linear and lacks the feeling of depth that Fallout 3 was so good at creating.
