Purchased Fallout New Vegas during midnight release, i have played about 15 hours playtime.
This is the best single player game i have played, the story is better then Fallout 3, the graphics are on the same engine, but everything looks better/clearer now, the models and textures are improved. But mainly, the story is not repatative and boring, the quests have you doing different things. They took alot from fallout 3, with familiar things if you played such as scraps, some guns, and a few basic things, and everything else is different, including buildings/houses/ the sky , the Terran. They also added effects like desert winds, fog, steam ect, it looks quite nice. Everyone you talk to in the game has dialog and a voice, the world is quite large.. i am not even close to exploring it all + or doing the quests.
I eventually made it to the Vegas Strip ( i could have gone/made it earlier, but there is so many quests i wanted to finish first) so far i am having a blast, im at the point where i dont even want to share or write this review... i would rather be playing =)
I would like to say.. its quite sad to see it get on the pirate list the first day, this is one of the better games out, i highly suggest you buy it and support the great game/hard work they did. I know not all games deserve that but this one definitely does.. I'm not even close to finishing it yet there is so many things to do!
The only disappointing thing in the game is they is high overall gore and non censorship.. but when it comes to the strippers? its like GTA with the tape >.<? This is Vegas baby... no tape please! -haha ;) its not a big deal obviously, but things like that annoy me, especially when you can blow peoples limbs off with flying parts + blood. Another thing, sometimes the game can crash, its quite rare, but it happens, and when it crashed it ruined my auto save. (this will be fixed with patch) But can be frustrating when you did 2 quests and have to re-do.
5/5 stars from me., SS of me in the strip, if any of you are into FPS(secondP)/adventure/open world , games, then i highly recommend it.
