Exceptional

Best fallout game ever made! Fun fact: FNV was made by original Fallout1 and 2 devs.

My Thoughts on Fallout New Vegas (in the Ultimate Edition) Positive: Well, credibly coherent and nuanced written as there are far too few Games. In part, if you get involved in the game and enter the world, as is the case with (almost) all Obsidian games, this goes into deep philosophical, moral and political questions. High Replay value, great playful Freedom and Agency, extremely extensive (~ 100 + Hours for the Main Game and all DLC). Many Ways to play as different Characters and interact with the NPCs and Factions that exist in the Game. Great Soundtrack that creates a lot of Atmosphere. Absolutely brilliant story DLC. EIn * true * Old-school fallout game and arguably one of the best Action Role games on the Market. Still visually True by its stylized Graphics, although the Kind of Design does not extend to that of Bethesda's Interpretation of the fallout world. Long, good Storyline that seems relatively innocuous and predictable until it suddenly unfolds in a Complexity rarely found in AAA games that invites repeated passages. Excellent Companions, with a Sympathy system as well as personal Preferences. Over 100 Quests. Hundreds of different modifiable Weapons that can be used to transform the entire Population of the Desert in the desert-shoot-/zerpiettogeto-brenntaspulverisan/pulverisieren/into green Mucus ... But also the Opportunity to end the Game without Violence and To work only through Diplomacy and Haggling. Simples, uncomplicated Gameplay that you can quickly find your way into. Through the Bench away decent English Synchronization, with isolated implausible But even more frequent, very convincing performances. Thousands of free Mods available on catchy Websites to customize the Game to suit your Tastes. Cons: May have bugs, Glitches and crash problems due To the outdated scrap Gamebryo engine. For these, however, there are Fan Patches, the Links to this can be found in the pinned discussion in the Game'S Steamforum. The technical Basis does not allow for larger Accumulations of people (at least not on Consoles, which are the focus of the Publishers and for the sake of which many Concepts have not been realized), which makes the civilized areas of the World relatively different. The lifeless seem. The Game is generally too simple, especially since in the Ultimate Edition the Level limit has been raised to 50 and you are quickly "overpowert." Even the so-called Hardcore Mode no Longer presents any challenge after a few Hours. Here I can only recommend the JSawyermod, which was created by Development manager Joshua Sawyer himself and significantly improves the Game balance. Obsidian Entertainment didn't have enough Time to Develop the Game, so some Quests, Factions and Areas come away a bit short. German Synchronization is of mixed Quality. Some Speakers sound implausible, the Sound Designers have been beating here and There and Dialogues have been rewritten, sometimes even to cover Up errors in setting (!!!). The Faces are squishy and stiff, so they don't do justice to the Characters behind them, and the Interface is more designed for Console Control, but still navigable. The Money for the Sale goes to Bethesda Softworks, who, step by Step, strip the Fallout Franchise of its Identity and scoopon it to squeeze as many Monets out of its Name as possible. Verdict: A Masterpiece. Although it couldn't reach its full Potential, one of the best Action role games of all Time and my personal Favorite Game. Deep, atmospheric, once it has a grip on you, it won't let go anytime soon. Fallout New: Vegas offers absolutely great Entertainment when you're ready to look past its Corners and Edges (or just put those in Order by Mods ...) and sink into its World first. The real Fallout 3. My fullest Recommendation.
