Summary: It's always a pleasure returning to the Fallout universe. This review is for the contents of the Collector's Edition, seeing as how the game itself has a lot of reviews already on the web. There are different reasons for buying a CE, one of them seems to be the ability to display the stuff you got with the CE. Sadly, with this one you won't have much to display. Case/box: The game comes within a big box that has a texture-ish feel to it.
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. For 20 more bucks (at least it was $70 when I payed for it), this was quite a bit more than what most games dump onto you.
"Not bad but not good either in relation with Fallout 3."
10 January 2011
Pros: 1.Graphics are seemed to be improved. 2.RPG elements are improved. 3.More customizable weapons 4 More Quests 5.Follower tactics are improved a bit. 6. More traits and perks 7 Textures on mutants are wonderfull. 8 As a RPG its great
Cons: 1 CRASHES TO DESKTOP RANDOMLY ! 2 The character movement in 3rd person view is not improved at all. (no physics involved) 3 There are tons of graphic glitches in the game 4 The storyline is not inviting 5 The chracter interaction is horrilble
Pros: Great story line, many more new guns, the ability to customize your guns.. Many improvements have been made. GREATLY improved Follower system (WAY easier to use), cool new creatures like the Nightstalker and Nightkin. Bigger and better quests too.
Cons: Well, Fallout New Vegas sure has a steep downside. It has tons of glitches (like Radscorpions stuck under the ground). The game frequently crashes, ruining the fun of it. It crashes very, very often, and can make you start the game over, which blows!
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. Besides the software glitches, I have to say that the desert wasteland just isn't as interesting as D.C.
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. Most of the game play mirrors Fallout 3 so it lacks the newness you find when coming to a new game system.
Summary: First off let me state that I loved Fallout 3. I am not one of the diehards that was upset when Bethesda Softworks took over the title. For those of you that don't know Fallout: NV is intended to pickup from Fallout 2, not a sequel or continuation of FO3. It starts off well enough but the depth in character creation - and the start of the story is just a little disappointing.
Summary: Review for the Windows version: I wish that I had waited for a couple of months before buying this game. FO-NV shipped with many many bugs. Bethsoft says that they are working hard to release a patch that will fix the issues, but these things should have been fixed BEFORE the game shipped. This game uses STEAM as a deterrent to thieves and even though this is a single player game, an internet connection is required just to install it.
