Summary: The fallout series has had a hard time on PS3. Seems that the add-ons always slow down the gameplay until it's running at about one frame per second. Frequently freezes the console requiring a hard boot to get back. Disappointing as everyone in our house loves the Fallout series. Besides the gameplay issues, it's the best game I've played. Maybe my next run through will be on PC.
Summary: I heard about fallout being a good game so i started with the newest one so i played this at first i was having fun but about 2 hours in it got boring real quick, the AI is bad and the story is stale, plus the bugs for the ps3 version makes it worse.
Summary: I recently finished Fallout 3 (also on the PS3) and was so impressed by it that I went out to pick up the New Vegas Ultimate Edition. (I also loved Fallout and Fallout 2 , having played them many times as well.) My thinking was that by now surely it had been patched enough to not have too many bugs. I was wrong. While obviously your experience may vary, I found this game much less compelling or interesting than Fallout 3.
Summary: If you enjoyed Fallout 3, this game has a lot to offer you--new weapons, a vast world to explore, new crafting and ally systems, a more developed karma system, new perks, and more. For new comers, this can all be a little intimidating, but the game walks you through it all quite well. The game play is solid and the story is interesting--more so than Fallout 3's story.
Summary: I had great fun playing for the first half of the story. There is much freedom, the environment and maps are great, and you can tell that Bethesda was quite ambitious in their creation. 65,000 lines of dialogue is pretty awesome. However, soon, the game becomes unplayable. There are dozens of serious bugs- For example, it is very well documented that as your game same file exceeds 6-8MB or so (which will happen quickly), the game will crash every time you walk halfway...
Summary: This game is great and tons of fun. There is one huge problem. Its freezes all the time. EVen after patch updates there are still constant freezing issues. IF you dont mind the freeze problems then you are in for a treat.
Summary: I am a huge fan of fallout 3, loved the game and couldn't wait for new vegas to be released. After purchasing the new vegas for ps3, I was dissapointed very quickly. Seems like Betheseda and Obsidian rushed the product to market for a quick buck. The game has so many glitches and bugs it is borderline unplayable, with some of the game actually being unplayable. The game will lock up requiring hard shut down like every 10-15 mins.
Summary: Gosh for how much fun Fallout 3 was, this game had the potential to be one of the most epic games to date. Its too bad they rushed and stuck to the release date instead of debugging glitches. I found myself falling through the map, getting stuck in the map, and followers dissapear for no reason at all. Alot of the unique weapons weren't where they were supposed to be. It felt like an almost complete version of the game.
Buggiest Game I've Ever Seen - Even from Bethesda!

Summary: As an avid Bethesda fan and fan of both the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises, I am more than willing to forgive minor glitches and hiccups considering the tremendous amount of work that goes into debugging an open world environment. One reason I've always been so forgiving of them in the past is because inevitably, Bethesda always seems to release a patch which will deal with most of the prominent issues. Sadly here that is not the case.
Summary: No, it's not a first person shooter because there's nothing to shoot at. Fallout 3, one of the greatest games of all time, was immersive, depressing, even terrifying. Every building you went into was full of red dots on your radar: bad guys that you had to kill. In New Vegas every building is full of yellow dots on your radar: good guys that you need to talk to.
