Synopsis


You are on a perilous journey across the Great Southwest in a post-nuclear world. As you trek across the treacherous Mojave Wasteland, you'll need to keep your senses sharp for what may be lurking around the next corner. Your goal is to make a name for yourself, but beware — in New Vegas, fortunes can change in an instant. Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas. It's the kind of town where you dig your own grave before being shot in the head and left for dead. It's a town of dreamers and desperados where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves — as well as make an enemy or two along the way. As you battle across the heat-blasted Mojave Wastelands, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon-drenched Vegas Strip, you'll meet a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare "winner takes all" and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3.

For the first time in one package, this Ultimate Edition offers you all the fun of the original Fallout: New Vegas game, plus the full suite of action-packed add-on content, including Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road. Hungry for more? The Ultimate Edition makes sure that you're locked and loaded with the latest supply of special weapons, ammo types and recipes from the two most recent add-on packs, Courier's Stash and Gun Runners Arsenal. That should keep you happy during your stroll through the desert. Visit expansive new areas, and come across an outlandish array of friends. Put up your dukes with the Two-Step Goodbye, or lull your enemies to eternal sleep with a 10mm submachine gun — known simply as Sleepytime. Face brand-new challenges — but be careful. Your choices will be crucial to your survival — and reputation as savior or pariah to the natives of New Vegas. The Ultimate Edition ensures that you'll enjoy your stay as the Wasteland welcomes you back for another visit.

    The Best Game In The Fallout Series

    I played Fallout 3 and 4 already and thought I would give New Vegas a shot (even though it's a bit old at this point). With Fallout 4 Bethesda (game developer) got criticized by critics and fans a like for having a weak story and a world where most interactions/quests involved shooting generic post-apocalyptic bandits. Fallout 4 is a great game but the actual role playing/world building part is very very weak. You could make similar comments about Fallout 3. In contrast Fallout New Vegas was made by Obsidian who are known for taking other people's games and making really interesting stories. In New Vegas your actions shape how various factions in the world perceive you and treat you, so what you do actually has consequences. Many of the quests and characters are memorable and well written. To give an example the other day I played a seemingly generic quest where I had to update some radio gear on behalf of a military officer. This led to a mystery about military reports that were clearly false. This ultimately led to a conversation with a really nice old man in the organization who eventually admitted that he thought his group was involved in a military mess (think Vietnam or Iraq) that was wasting a lot of young lives. He alluded to the fact that he was falsifying reports and undermining battle planning so that leaders back home would think things are hopeless and end the war. After confronting him I tell him I will have him arrested and he accepts this. Then when you leave his office he locks the door, apologizes to everyone over the loudspeaker for losing his way, and then shoots himself. I struggle to think of an interesting story like this in Fallout 4. If you like Bethesda games like Fallout or Elder Scrolls I highly recommend Fallout New Vegas. The graphics are pretty bad (they weren't even good when it first came out) but that's not stopping me from having fun.

    A title worthy to be called: 'Fallout'

    Most reading this have probably played Fallout 3. If you haven't, grab that one as well! Both are worth every dollar spent. I won't go into the story too much, it's on the back of the box and there isn't much too it w/o spoiling it :) It follows the basic story telling and leveling mechanics as Fallout 3. You level by executing (and I say that because nothing is Better than a vats head shot!) enemies and leveling up. As you level, you are able to put points into a variety of skills from bartering to stealth. You are able to have a maximum 2 companions at once (one human one robotic). You cannot level them up, but they do level with you and each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Onto the DLC. I enjoyed most of them, three of the four to be exact. The story with the DLCs made it feel like they could of been thrown in with the vanilla version, which is expected. I hate DLCs that entirely change the feel of a game. You want more guns and head explosions, right? Yes. I didn't care for the Sierra madre DLC in the pack. It just seemed like an entire other team created it... It was overly dark and the story wasn't as engaging in my opinion... If you enjoyed fallout 3, or enjoy a great story telling RPG (and can deal with some glitches and quest bugs), this is probably the game for you. I played thru it twice, and for a game this large you can probably fit 50 hours into 1 play through... -AgtJ

    Awesome game, but very glitchy/crashy

    This is an awesome game, lots of story, missions, side quests, well written dialogue and very much like Fallout 3. The price you can't beat for what you get; the full game and several of the DLC's. If you like RPG's or even shooters, this game will provide many hours of enjoyment. But this game has HUGE issues with crashing, freezing, and glitches. I had this game when it first came out on a different X360, and it eventually corrupted my save file and I ended up getting rid of the game. I have since gotten rid of that unit and now have the Halo edition X360, so I figured I would try this game again. I probably got 2 hours in when it started exhibiting the same exact issues. I even installed the game, and it changed nothing. The only thing that helped was to turn off the autosaving features, and that only reduced the amount of times it would freeze. Primarily when you go to new areas or there is a loading screen, the game freezes or hangs up. Its very frustrating because the game is really fun to play.

    FallOut Continues to Rock

    The FallOut story continues its winning approach with New Vegas. Many moons ago I was playing Fallout 3 for more hours than I would care to admit when New Vegas came out. I was still well into FallOut 3 and didn't want to play this game until I was completely done with it. However, when I was finished other games came out and this one got lost in the sauce. Years later, Xbox One finally made it backward compatible and I quickly picked up a copy. However, history was repeating itself again since I am currently playing Fallout 4. But at least now I know I will have a larger window of time to get this game in. The FallOut story is awesome! If you haven't tried it yet I would suggest getting Fallout 3, New Vegas, and then the most recent Fallout 4. Those three game should keep you preoccupied for more than 6 months!

    The best console version, BY FAR!

    I originally played this game on PS3 and it was truly a nightmare. Freezes, crashes, frame-drops, and stutters getting worse and worse until the game couldn't be finished. It was terrible. Now, THIS bad-boy right here, running backwards compatible through a regular Xbox One, is the complete opposite. It plays like a dream. Load screen times are clearly reduced, few if-any frame-drops, and it hasn't frozen once. It's been widely accepted that this is the best 3D Fallout game and after finally playing through it here (along with the INCLUDED DLCs), I have to agree. The wasteland is yours. Take it! Take it all!

    great game! the wasteland you roam is huge and very unpredictable. Almost every inch of the wasteland is playable along with most of the buildings. there are several difficulty settings ranging from easy to hardcore for all skill levels. I personally installed the game to my hard drive in order for the game to run a little smoother. Almost every action taken in the wasteland has a reaction. if you attack a certain faction they'll remember you and possibly try to attack you on sight. If you haven't played Fallout 3 i highly recommend you pick that game up as well, however take into account that fallout new Vegas doesn't pick up after fallout 3.

    XBoxOne really made it difficult to play this. I bought this three months ago and still haven't even played it because Microsoft Xbox One requires youto download the game content from the internet before it can even be played. Xbox One is big disappointment. This is otherwise a GREAT game, I love Fallout: New Vegas. I have played it before and was very happy with the game. However, I am not happy with Xbox One downloads. I recommend the gamebut I do not recommend Xbox One to anyone without access to the www/internet.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    After playing Fallout 3, I was stoked to play this! Now, there are some changes here and there... Some I liked, some I disliked, but the game itself is still EPIC! Like with Fallout 3, I first played through on PS3, but bought this version once it was backwards compatible for XB1. Only downside, again, to the 360 version is the disc swapping for extra content, but I'd still say that offsets the inconvenience of some of the bugs in the PS3 version, and the extra cost of buying the game plus bonus content digitally. If you have an XB1 or 360, and haven't played this, BUY IT!
