Summary: I gave this gave this game three stars because game wise it is absolutely amazing! Lots of stories, guns and thing to do. However, after about 20 hours or so of game play this engines of the game start to have a really hard time keeping it all together. Constant freezing forcing you to restart will begin happening and sometimes happen every five minutes rendering the game nearly unplayable. Even though this is the Ultimate Edition it still has lots of bugs.
Summary: I've really enjoyed this series and was really looking forward to this game, especially the ultimate edition with all the DLC. I was hoping by now that they would've work the bugs out from the lag and the drag that get progressively worse as you progress through the game. Still good story and gameplay provided you have the patience to work your way through it as you get about three quarters of the way in.
Summary: CONS: Don't get me wrong, I love the fallout games but new vegas was so buggy. Fallout 3 had issues sure but after their goty edition, most bugs removed. This games goty edition still massive in bug department. PROS: lots of content, massive world.
Summary: I played through the original version of this game a few times, and it's sad to say that the reviews are right-- the ultimate edition IS even glitchier on the PS3. I actually bought this for the DLC, and for the most part, I am happy with the decision, though I found "Dead Money" to be of frustrating piece of crap.
Summary: Great open world game. There are lots of missions to keep you busy and I really enjoy the variety of weapons. There are still times when the game experiences slow down and missions sometimes get stuck without the proper triggers which can be frustrating if you don't know where they are. The DLC missions have been hit and miss so far. I would recommend this to anyone who likes open world games.
Summary: Once your save file reaches 7000K or above you will start experiencing severe lag and freezes almost every hour or even sooner if you transition into different areas 5 or more times. Less than 3 if those areas are highly populated. Make sure your auto saves are turned off and you keep a low inventory and no companions helps stave off the lag. If it starts to lag slightly just hold still and don't touch the controller until all the frames finish loading.
Summary: This is an amazing game which I loved whole heatedly, however I'm hesitant to finish it or play any of the DLC that comes on the ultimate edition. Why is that? Because I can't play the damn thing for more than a hour at a time. The game freezes up whenever I do. I've tried numerous things, deleting other games, all data, freeing up memory however I could but its made no difference, and I'm using a new PS3.
Summary: I waited to purchase this game so I could get the extra content, and hoping that all the bugs many complained of had been worked out. Unfortunately the game still freezes and lags quite a bit. It gets worse the further on in the game you go or if you have companion. It's almost as the point where the freezes are not worth the fun of playing the game. Still, if you enjoy the Fallout world, it might be worth slogging through.
Summary: I played FO3 over and over again and was very excited to see FO#: New Vegas. There are very amazing things about New Vegas and some very disappointing things as well. Good: - great open world/sandbox - upgradeable weapons (++) - multiple companions - many missions & quests - awesome world display - various ammo for weapons (standard, hollow point, etc.
