Summary

Fallout: New Vegas needed more time in the oven to work out all the kinks and bugs, but it is still a terrific experience for anyone interested in re-experiencing one of the greatest action-RPG series of our time.

We like

  • The enormous and detailed world to explore
  • The player choice is front and center
  • The heaps of side missions to tackle

We dislike

  • The crippling glitches and bugs
  • The long load times
  • The dated graphics and poor voice-synching
