Pros: This was my first Fallout game and I really enjoyed it. It is an open world RPG with an abundance of quests, skill specializations, and crafting. What I enjoyed most was the story of Fallout's alternate timeline universe. The story really drew me into the gameplay and I could play for hours on end. I have also played all the dlc with "Old World Blues" and "Lonesome Road" being my favorites, but the stories were good in all the dlc. Mods are available at the Fallout Ne...
Cons: As others have stated, the game can be buggy, and more than likely, you will experience crashes from time to time. I simply saved the game more often than I would normally as a counter. Maybe I was lucky, but I don't remember having any game breaking bugs. Certain areas of the map will get you killed if you venture into them before your skill set is sufficient. I don't necessarily consider this a con, but it is a little friendly advice to those who haven't played the ...
Pros: This game is pretty awesome. I have to say like a previous reviewer Fallout 3 felt like it captured my mind a bit more. But that being said, this game IS pretty awesome. Especially once you download the dlc's (a few of them actually link up with each other and go into the courier's past and such). The combat I think is better and more freeflowing than it was in Fallout 3. Overall it's a great experience and actually an interesting game.
Cons: GLITCHES AND CRASHES!!!!! This game does tend to bug out - a LOT. Whether it's a bug that stops you from finishing a main quest in the story (happened to me twice) or your game decides to crash every 10-20 minutes, there are definitely a lot of serious issues that kind of make the game seem cheap and incomplete. I understand bugs in a game, but come on. This is probably one of the buggiest and most unstable games I've played.
Summary: Definitely a game worth playing, but I have to say it's lacking as a sequel to Fallout 3. They just didn't do enough differently and at times it feels like it was a bit rushed. The actual new vegas city was rather small and disappointing. They really could have done a lot better with it, although it's still a good game.
Summary: The previous installment of the Fallout series, FALLOUT-3 , was an excellent open-world Role-Playing Shooter (RPS). Although it suffered a far from...happy ending and most of the DLCs offered little more than even more loot and a handful of unique items, it was a game I greatly enjoyed for hours at no end and was more than happy to replay it only to follow different paths every time the story bifurcated.
Summary: This game is a ton of fun...the graphics are excellent and the various stories are pretty good. Some of the dialogue gets recycled and old after a while and there are some bugs...but it is definitely worth the purchase.
Summary: The graphics are seriously dated. The Oblivion engine was already old news when Fallout 3 came out. In my opinion, Bethesda really should have updated the graphics engine before releasing another Fallout game. In many ways New Vegas feels like a "mod" of Fallout 3.
Pros: A lot of the same gameplay that you loved (I assume) in Fallout 3.
Cons: This game does not have the same kind of atmosphere and ambience that Fallout 3 had. The "Old West" theme that runs through the game gives New Vegas it's own flavor, but it didn't immerse and intrigue me the way that the Capital Wasteland did.
Summary: Pretty good folow up on original but as add ons, expansions patches go, they are never what one expects to get. It was kinda short stll quite a bit of playing. I wasn`t real impressed. Still worth my money IMO, even if just to have all parts of his wonderful game.
Pros: This is a great game! It's different enough from Fallout 3 that it won't be the exact same game, but it still follows the Fallout style.
Cons: This game is still buggy despite several updates. It is VERY frustrating when it crashes and you have to replay sections. Also, there are a few glitches which are inexcusable in an RPG. These games are supposed to immerse you in the character, but when you see a person walking into a wall, unable to move, or a radscorpion that is stuck... inside a rock, it's hard to stay immersed.
Summary: Fallout New Vegas Collector's Edition is a wonderful RPG. The gameplay is incredibly huge and detailed world, loaded with stuff to do. Great atmosphere in Vegas Strip at Mojave. It is a little more harder and challenging than Fallout 3. The only problem I have with Fallout New Vegas is that it's a very buggy game. So make sure you always use Quicksave whenever possible. One more thing, this game does ties to STEAM. Keep that in mind. I have no problem at all with STEAM.
