Fallout: New Vegas, looks and plays exactly the same as Fallout 3. But the additions that Obsidian have made push the survival angle even further to provide a much more immersive and authentic experience, and just like its predecessor New Vegas proves to be a role-playing masterpiece.

All in all, Fallout: New Vegas is a triumph for Obsidian. Once again, they’ve taken on a beloved franchise and managed to do it justice in the sequel. From a purely technical standpoint, New Vegas does have some issues, but a game isn’t all about the technical side of things.

The way New Vegas’ story plays out is incredibly immersive, providing a real sense that you’re playing a key part in shaping the future of the world. It’s not a million miles away from Fallout 3 but it’s big, crazy and very entertaining and that’s all that really matters.

As long as freedom prevails in this irradiated frontier, adventure awaits for the ready and yearns for the able. The fool can wander for weeks in any direction and return with a trove of rifles, skill books, and Nuka-Cola Victories. Here, the air hangs upon the tittering of fate, and the world can be shaped by the will of one and the luck of another. War never changes – so it is said – but the dice has been thrown, the risks have been cast, and New Vegas is calling our bets.

Fallout: New Vegas is still a fantastic game, only slightly held back by its increasingly outdated tech. Obsidian has created a totally compelling world and its frustrations pale into insignificance compared to the immersive, obsessive experience on offer. Just like the scorched scenery that provides its epic backdrop, New Vegas is huge and sprawling, sometimes gaudy, even downright ugly at times – but always effortlessly, shamelessly entertaining.

Ultimately, whether or not you enjoy Fallout: New Vegas depends on your tolerance for handling bugs. Personally, I didn’t find them distracting enough to ruin the experience for me, and a few crashes over the course of 80+ hours felt like a small price to pay for one of my favorite games of the year. Some players will get fed up more quickly than others, just as I’m sure some won’t care a whit about glitchy A.I. or weird textures problems. If you can see the forest for the buggy trees, you’ll quickly see that Fallout: New Vegas is the pinnacle of the first-person RPG genre.

In New Vegas, the fun Fallout 3 formula is intact, with more polished combat, high-quality side missions, and the exciting setting of the Vegas strip. Unfortunately, the bugs also tagged along for the ride. If Obsidian and Bethesda had polished up the game by fixing the AI, improving the animations or even gotten it to run smoothly, perhaps it would feel less like a giant expansion of Fallout 3 and more like its own game. Be that as it may, Fallout 3 was a great game, so as similar as it is, Fallout: New Vegas is still a fun ride that offers more for fans of the series to enjoy. If you can look past its shortcomings, this is definitely a wasteland worth exploring.

The art style in New Vegas has this clash between classic westerns and the retro-future 1950s sci-fi. From the title screen to the first few minutes after you step outside and into the sunlight, this is a game that’s not afraid to lean on concept art and overall design to create atmosphere.

There’s lots to like in Fallout: New Vegas. There’s a boatload of new content, with players looking at a minimum of 15 hours of gameplay, even if they just try to burn through the base story content.

There is no escaping the fact that Fallout: New Vegas is more or less Fallout 3. The map might be bigger, the side quests more expansive, but if you’ve played Fallout 3, you’re not going to find anything dramatically new here. Good thing? I think so. Great thing? Probably not.

Vegas represents a solid addition to Fallout canon. Those accustomed to investing hours examining endless story arcs, or searching vast environments for details will certainly appreciate Obsidian’s efforts, even if newcomers may struggle to see what all the fuss is about.

Homecomings are a wonderful thing. A bit of an alien concept to Brits such as myself, I nevertheless appreciate the sentiment of a welcome return, or the retaking of a much deserved mantle. Obsidian Entertainment, forged from the remnants of Interplay’s Black Isle Studio, fresh from the not-so successful Alpha Protocol have returned to a franchise they know very well. Anecdotally referred to as the Vice City of the series, Fallout: New Vegas is a companion game to Bethesda’s 2008 revival of a cult classic.

The driving force behind New Vegas is the story. The simple premise (you’re a courier, you’ve been shot in the head, your package has been stolen – find out who did it) builds up a nice sense of mystery, and Fallout’s trademark blend of optimistic ’50s pop culture and bleak nuclear destruction is as engaging as ever.

We can’t help but have a problem with how little Obsidian have bettered the experience in Fallout 3. We loved Fallout 3, granted, but New Vegas has too little evolution of note to be really worthy of a higher score at the foot of this page. Obsidian had an admirable chance to re-define the Fallout experience but have really failed to enrapture our passions for the series. More of the same? Yes. But ultimately unlikely to be remembered as fondly as the third in the Fallout cannon.

Looking past its mutated scars is the only way to enjoy Fallout: New Vegas, both for expatriates from the wastes of the District of Columbia and veteran Desert Rangers who have followed the series since the PC days. If you can soldier past what makes it feel as battered as its namesake and push aside its past baggage, potential survivors might find that New Vegas’ odds are worth betting on.

Paradoxically, New Vegas doesn’t make good on much new on any front, and it takes a hit both as experience and product for it. As fond as I am of the idea of an alternate reality Fallout 3, we shouldn’t forget that game was released in late 2008, and Obsidian’s contribution to the franchise looks and feels every day of two years old, maybe more. But it’s still a giant, cool, twisted, funny world to explore, chock full of a staggering number of adventures
