Summary: While I LOVE the fallout games, Bethesda has a lot of work to do. Their games are always glitching! The first copy of this game that I bought I had to return within 3 days because it would never make it past the loading screen! Same thing happened with the second copy and in both cases, the disc was unscathed and basically in perfect condition. Instead of going through the trouble of returning the stupid thing, I had my husband sell it to Gamestop.
Summary: This game is spectacular in almost every way. I bought this after playing fallout 3 and I love it. However, the biggest downside and the reason why I rated it a 3/5 is that it is very glitchy. During the first 20 minutes of the game, it froze 3 times and I had to hard reset my playstation. I checked online reviews and forums regarding it and my problem is anything but rare.
Great story, graphics, sound.......VERY GLITCHY.....

Summary: This is a good game. The art work, music and story are great. The only thing holding this game back is the glitches that, based on my experience, are becoming synonymous with Bethesda products. Nothing is more frustrating than putting hours of valuable time into a game and it freezes, or wont load your save. This has happened to me with this game. I have read reviews from around the net and it is not an isolated problem. So, if you want to take a chance....go for it.
Summary: I actually rented this game via Gamefly. At first I didn't like it, but after doing a couple of quests I thought it was fun. I've never played the other Fallout games, but I do like this one, although it's very glitchy in my opinion. I found one place on the map in which I repeatedly fall through the map. Also, my companions seem to disappear every once in a while. I have had the game freeze twice, so if you play I recommend saving often.
Summary: New Vegas is a fun game to play through. If you played Fallout 3, however, it feels to be lacking. This is especially true if you played Broken Steel. I understand the developers wanted a definitive ending, but not allowing the player to continue after beating the game really kills it. It also feels that it lacks the depth of Fallout 3. I loved finding terminals with numerous back/side stories and found myself constantly reading the Fallout Wiki.
Summary: Every single time I played this game, I experienced some sort of game halting glitch, whether it be the game freezing, an endless loading screen, or falling through the ground. And after every glitch, I would haul myself off the couch, restart my console, and enjoy another 3-4 hours of gaming nirvana. That's right, I don't care in the least that this game glitches more than any game I have ever owned.
Summary: I loved Fallout 3. What a visionary game! From birth you follow your character out of a post-apocalyptic underground bunker-city (vault) into the wastelands of Washington D.C. The way the game played out was nearly flawless and the story is interesting and keeps you engaged. Fallout: New Vegas does not live up to it's predecessor's glory. The game starts interestingly enough.
Summary: This game has it's fun points. Interesting story, new weapons, new people to interact with, and many different places to go. But I cannot get past the bugs. There are too many here to list. Just do a search on Fallout Vegas Bugs and you will get an education on the laundry list of problems. I would say maybe it might be a good idea to hold off on this until a GOTY edition or edition that includes all the expansions, hopefully the bugs will all be cleared up by then.
