Welcome sir or madam, to the world known as New Vegas. “This wasteland almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter”, with scorching heat and deadly rad scorpions there shall never be an end to the amount of danger this environment can bring,
Graphics 6/10 – Graphics would be slightly higher to a 6.5 or 7 if this game was the first in the series however there was nothing new with New Vegas compared to Fallout 3, especially with Bethesda still using G.E.C.K back from pre 2007.
Gameplay – 8/10 – FNV alone has over 250+ hours of non-stop gameplay that is more than enough to ask for. Even though Bethesda did not change their engine at all they still made it interesting with a complete land scape change, a whole new theme that gamers have not experienced before. From the start the gamer is murdered and then revived and then put on a man hunt to find the murderer in which the gamer knows who it is, the gamer can identify the man’s voice by his last line of the cut scene “The game was rigged from the start baby”. Other than the beginning and the countless hours of gameplay the game also brought in the hardcore mode which made it realistic and even more intense, having a hunger/water meter and making the player sleep just makes this game impossible to pass up. unfortunately though there were not as many super mutants as there was in Fallout 3 or any of the older fallouts dating back all the way to its PC days. with Blood and gore, Intense Violence, Sexual content, Strong language, and use of drugs this game is a must play.
Sound – Right off the bat, no seriously right off the bat went someone’s head. For sound effects were amazing Bethesda and Obsidian did a amazing job on enhancing the sound effects on guns, however the radio station’s music would get extremely boring in the first 2 hours of gameplay I strongly recommend making a 24+ hour playlist to listen to while playing.
