    Incredible, but beware of bugs

    The graphics are excellent and the game map is massive. The gameplay is challenging, but fair. You can make consistent progress even if you are a beginner. But, having a companion will save you many times. The story is interesting, but all the side quests make this game great. One could immerse themselves for over 150 hours if so inclined. Another great thing is you have a number of ways to play the game. You can be a saint or the ultimate sinner. There are benefits of both, but you pretty much have to anger some faction on the way. The expansions are lots of fun and a great way to obtain money (caps) or weapons. (Sierra Madre may be difficult if you do not have a game guide). There are weapons to suit all styles of play and lots of modifications. The dialogue options are well written and humorous. The voice acting is stellar. Use the light on your Pip-Boy and thoroughly search rooms once you have killed everyone. There are lots of valuable things to find in low-lit corners. Trust me, doing so will prevent a second trip. Bethesda has made great games over the years, but their more recent games seem to freeze up a lot. For example; Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion froze up only twice, Fallout 3 was good until the expansions, then it froze up about 30 times, Fallout New Vegas froze over 75 times, and this version was good until level 13, then froze up about 25 times. Once thing that is a bit different is the game slows to the point it nearly freezes. After you repeatedly press start you can save progress, remove the disc or quit, and restart the game. Time does not improve the gameplay, no way to push through it. A total freeze up is awful, but at least most of the time there is an option to save before the inconvenience of a restart. Plan on saving every 10 to 15 minutes, or get furstrated. And that is why I am unable to rate this game 5 out of 5.

    Great, But Flawed Game

    I really like this game. There are moral choices, multiple endings, interesting quests, colorful characters, mini games—slots, 21, roulette, Caravan— lots of exploration and tons of unique weapons and items. It’s challenging and entertaining. I especially enjoyed the Dead Money DLC, I know lots of people really don’t like it, and I feel because it involves strategy, stealth and survival. You can’t just run and gun. That being said, this version still has some of the same warts that I encountered with the regular copy. After about 100 hrs in the ultimate edition I only had 3 hard freezes, some odd glitches, clipping, soft freezing, enemies getting stuck in the map (mainly scorpions), and numerous frame-rate issues. This was the biggest problem, the fame-rate, it was a minor issue for me with the regular copy (biggest problem with that version was hard freezes), but in this edition it happens a lot. It’s almost random. Sometimes it would happen when I’m alone in the wasteland, but it also happened frequently in areas with several NPCs moving around. When this happens I feel the best, maybe the only way to deal with this issue is to hit pause (it may take several seconds for the menu to come up), then quit the game. Then at the in-game menu, press the PS home button and completely quit, then restart the game. I would not recommend saving during a frame-rate drop. So you should save frequently while playing and keep multiple saves. Also explore the Fallout wiki for addition help and tips. I don’t want to scare anyone off this game, but it does require patience to play, the bugs do make it really frustrating. It’s flawed, but I’ll still pick it up again, I tolerate the issues, because I really enjoy this adventure. I really wish I could give this game 5 out 5, and I would if it wasn’t so buggy. It really does deserve it, I enjoyed this edition that much, but because of the issues I can only give it a 4 out of 5.

    The Best New Vegas Experience

    Posted

    First off, this game is great for anyone who has already played New Vegas, and wants to start a new game; or anyone looking to play for the first time. If you have a previously saved game, load it up, and the DLC's will pop up as radio signals. If you don't, start a new game, and it'll do the same. This is the same great game, plus 4 DLC's, and some weapon add ons, which are awesome, because you get some sick weapons at the start of the game. The story is still awesome, with plenty of side missions to keep you occupied for quite some time. The graphics and sound are great for such a big game, and the loading screens are interesting, and not boring at all, which is a great feature. There's loads of NPC's and things to loot, so keep an eye out. Overall, this is the best experience for a newcomer to New Vegas, or a returning player, and I strongly recommend it.

    This Game is awsome. It plays smooth and is easy to pick up. It's not easy to master of course but that's not where the fun is. The only gripe is that the PC edition has far more options and abiities and will run far smoother on most modern hardware. That said there is nothing wrong with the PS3 version if you can get around the lack of mods, Graphics potential (720p at what looks to be Medium to low settings compared to the PC) and the fun that cheats can provide. To those that don't have a P4 based computer system or higher, the PS3 version is an excellent stepping stone. to the series. It's also more fun to me than 3 because the area looks more like what would be expected for the west even now before teh story of Fallout happens.

    I purchased this game when it was first released, and sold it because of its bugs and glitches. While picking up FO4, I decided to grab the Ultimate Edition because all the patchwork was supposed to make it better. As much I love the series, I hate to say it but it still has slow frame rate issues and freezes after a few hours of gameplay (meaning you have to reset). The only solution is to clear the cache as its loading, by holding down L2, R2, and Square as it's loading (PS3). But if you can bear with it, the expansion dlc and interconnectivity of the themes related to the core game make for a wonderful and complete gaming experience.

    I love the Fallout series. I was a little disappointed in New Vegas as I was not as entertained as Fallout 3, but it was still fun to play and still worth the investment. The game is set int he southwest after Fallout 3 takes place and there is some new "functionality" was that added. It was fun to play and the additional DLC was worth every penny. The new "functionality" was not included in Fallout 4 so I'm glad that I wasn't the only one that felt the same way. I would recommend this to anyone and if you are a fan of the series, you wont be disappointed.

    Amazing game, too many glitches

    Just as the title states, amazing game, how can it not be? It's a Fallout game! Only downside is the game is so glitchy that at times it almost seems unplayable(not sure if this is just a problem with the PS3 version of the game). The glitches made me give up on the game & I wish they didn't as I was already 40 hours into the game & wanted to continue & put over 100 hours into it much like I did with Fallout 3 :(

    I loved it so much, I bought a copy for my younger brother too. Christmas gift, after he was ensnared by fallout 3 and all the buzz around fallout 4. I love playing this and have spent hours exploring and shaping the Mojave. My one complaint, still has the same bugs and issues that the previous installment has. But I pressed through the issues and babied my saves to do it.

    Fallout New Vegas is King!

    I purchased Fallout: New Vegas for Xbox 360 on launch day. Eventually I purchased the GOTY edition for PC and enjoyed the community mods. Now I've purchased the PS3 version and I have to say, Fallout: New Vegas is one amazing game. Bethesda is one of my favorite game companies. They sure pulled through with these games. Time to gamble in a post-apocalyptic Vegas...Game-on!

    So I was introduced to Fallout through playing Fallout 4. EVERYONE said 4 is good, but you have to play New Vegas. They were ALL right, New Vegas is a gem and I hope it gets a re-master since that seems to be the popular thing now a days. Get it, it's cheap!

    This as a excellent game, I love how this game has free will, allowing freedom to choose what you do, and when. The game may not have the most rich story line, but it more than makes up for that in overall gameplay, animation, quests, characters, weapon mods, armor, and other items and abilities in the game.

    I've encountered various bugs so far and I'm not even into the bonus content yet. This is a great deal as it comes with all of the add on content, however you would think that the developers would have ironed out the bugs from the main game, considering it's been years since the original release.

    If you are into rpg games and own a PS3 you should check this game out. It seems tougher than Fallout 3 and I do miss the mech armor of Fallout 3, but the casinos make the game interesting. I am still more a fan of Fallout 3 than New Vegas. For the price I could t pass up checking it out.

    I have playing fall out three and four but this version is the funnest for me. The Mohave Desert has the best expansion of Vaults as well as creatures to help build your character up before you get to new Vegas. If you're looking to have some fun give this a try

    I played fallout new Vegas about five years ago and loved it. I sold my system a few years ago as well. I just bought a new PS3 and decided to buy this game again because it was so fun. Already had many hours of fun since buying it. I highly recommend

    The DLC makes this game unplayable once you progress though the game. The lag is unbearable. Such a shame that one of the best games ever made has to suffer through this. Get it on PC. Mods make this already legendary game infinitely better.

    This is a great game for teens or adults. Too many bad words for smaller kids even if you don't play on-line. Need a walk-through to find all the side quests that are available in this game. Many weeks to complete the whole game including add-on quests.

    Love this game. Debates out on which is better between this and Fallout 3. Highly recommend this pickup as there are hours and hours of post nuclear fallout fun that shouldn't be missed. With that said, why haven't you clicked the order button yet?

    So, here we have one of the best games of all time, horribly ported to PS3. What you end up with is a great game that is difficult to play at times due to crashes and horrible load times, which get worse as you advance in level.

    Fallout 4 was the first fallout game I played. I loved it and heard this was the next best, so I thought I'd try it. Just like fallout 4 it's a lot of fun there's a lot to do, besides just the main mission.
