    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!

    I collect video games. I always try my best to get the original versions with original box art, inserts, etc. Based on the photo listed for this item, I was under the impression that I had purchased just that. However, when I received my order, it was in the new Xbox One style case (see attached). May seem picky, but I believe the photo shown of an item should reflect what a consumer actually purchases.

    My first Fallout was Fallout 3. That game was awesome to me. It was like Oblivion with laser guns. This game had some big shoes to fill, and mechanically speaking it did pretty good. I heard so much about the West in Fallout 3 that I couldn't wait to go and see it. I think that is what started this whole since of mediocrity. I don't recall Fallout 3 or 4 locking things down so hard. I found myself caring less for this world because it lacked motivation and mystery. Despite all that, it can be fun if you push through to the higher level content.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    I recently purchased Fallout 4. it was my first try with the Fallout series. I absolutely love it. So I thought I might extend the joy by purchasing Fallout New Vegas, since I could play it on my xbox one (even though it is an Xbox 360 game). it was a fun game, but the quality of the graphics, etc., really feels like it takes a step backwards. You get a great value, because all of the downloadable content that used to cost extra is now included. So if old style graphics don't bother you, you will love this game.

    This followup to Fallout 3 is a return to the world Fallout but in a totally different city with new quests and missions to complete, new gear and weapons to find and enemies to defeat or run away from. The story is a bit more linear and the world is less open ended but New Vegas makes up for that with more and better action. The DLC comes for free with this version of the game so that is even more stuff to do. Overall a great package that will tide me over until Fallout 4.

    Best RPG system with in depth branching story and high replay value. Main and Side quest are memorable and have impact towards the ending of the game that are based on player's choices. High weapon weapon varieties that accommodate the players' play style. All DLCs is an excellent addition to expand upon the lore of the base game. Overall, the game will keep you entertained and last for a long time depending on the player's completion mindset.

    I came into the Fallout series with Fallout 3. Fallout New Vegas takes the best of 3 and improves it across the board. With a similar play style but a much more interesting world, New Vegas is engrossing from the get-go. The main story is solid, though the open world is really where the game shines. The expansions from the Ultimate Edition are entirely worth it (though the Sierra Madre was tremendously difficult...but still worth it). I highly recommend the game, especially with the Ultimate Edition.

    New Vegas took a different direct in a sort of way that was different than Fallout 3 did. I listened to other gamers that played it and said it wasn't all that hot, well some said the game was better. So, I played it for myself and found out imo that it's kinda right there between good and bad, but all games you have the good, bad, and the ugly. Really good game, but I just thought it had to short of a story line..

    I've always been a fan of Fallout. I already had Fallout: New Vegas but decided to get this version so that I can get all the DLC. It plays fine on my Xbox One. There are some very minor annoyances/glitches that pop up from time to time but are not enough to ruin the game. Personally, I liked this story more than F3. Give it a go if you haven't played this yet.

    My biggest gripe with fallout: New Vegas was always the load times and I've bought it on ps3, PC, and now Xbox one X and I must say: Xbox one X is the definitive console to play this game on. I've seriously never had such a good time with this game and it was already in my top 3 favorite games of all time!

    Ok first let me say after spending many many many many hours playing Fallout 3 I was excited to play New Vegas. They added many new awesome features into the gameplay however the map itself seemed very empty. New Vegas had some nice, fun areas but the rest of the map (mostly empty) was just boring. I will still give this 4 stars as I did enjoy the DLC and raiding every casino for that sweet sweet loot.

    Not Fallout 3, but still a great Western RPG

    If you haven't played Fallout 3, start there. You can get the Greatest Hits Fallout 3 Game of the Year for twenty bucks. The only real knock against this was it had to try and live up to Fallout 3, which is near impossible. This is still one of the better RPG's I have played this generation, and getting the game with the DLC is a must as the DLC is more enjoyable than the main game. Great game, recommended.

    It's been a while since my past experience with New Vegas, it's still a very good modern Fallout, especially for fans of the classic two PC games. The updated backwards compatibility with the Xbox One X makes it ideal for folks that might want to play for the first time or revisit on console.
