    Innovative and Fun Despite Huge Problems

    The fact is, after Fallout 3 I was a huge fan-boy. Hell, even before that I bought everything Bethesda made and played it for years afterwords. But that doesn't mean I can't at least attempt to be objective. I have played 30+ hours of this game already and seen several hours of the PC version played (both patched and unpatched). The glitches, freezes, frame rate issues etc. make this an exceedingly frustrating game to attempt to play. Those who don't make tender love to the autosave frequently are more or less doomed when the game decides to troll you into oblivion. All that being said, this game seems more complete than Fallout 3. Bethesda and Obsidian are known for fun games despite huge problems that need to be patched and repatched for years to come. But they are also known for game of the years that are played for years to come and considered among the best of the best. This installment is clever, fun, and has millions of things for the wasteland survivor to stay occupied for a dozen replays easily. Altogether, if you are a fan of Bethesda, Fallout, or any RPGs and have the patience to keep going while getting fucked over every once in a while, then you owe it to yourself to give this game a try. I know I'm glad I did.

I mean I was enjoying...

      Completely falls short of Fallout 3 0

      While I don't usually find myself being drawn in to open world games, Fallout 3 had just the right mix of role playing elements, exploration, and amusing dialogue to keep me interested.  Having played through several hours of Fallout New Vegas, I walked away without the game ever clicking.  Whether it was the numerous technical issues, the smaller world, or the odd replacements for Fallout 3's karma system, it really seems like just about every phase of the game took a step back in this game.  I...
