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.
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: 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 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.
Summary: I wanted to like this game as much as Fallout 3. It has its moments and some very cool weapons (I love my energy weapons, yes I do!). I like the party members. There's a nice variety of them and they all have a perk that comes along with them, so you can tailor your party according to what perks you want/need from them. However, I usually end up wanting to chuck the controller at the TV. This game freezes up too much. Not continuously, but enough to be REALLY annoying.
Summary: I was so excited when I ordered this game- I loved Fallout 3, and counted the days until I could play. The storyline is pretty awesome, but the gameplay can be excruciating. There are a lot of really great stories- not quite as involved as in Fallout 3, but still really good. There are many unresolved bugs- the closer you get to the end game, the more they will stand out.
Summary: I really wish I had played Fallout 1&2. After having played 3 and now NV...I can see that the original makers had a heavier hand in this new title. Where 3 was a good game, it was focused on first person shooting first, followed by RPG elements a distant second. At the time, I was not aware of this. playing NV, it is apparent to me that this is the game 3 should have been. Most forget (or don't know) that the Fallout series was a RPG...not a FPS.
