Fallout: New Vegas Bugs Spur Negative Reviews

EverythingPR writes: After being hammered by the mainstream gaming media for having one of the glitchiest games of the decade, Fallout:New Vegas takes a new blow from PCWorld, which twists the knife in the wound listing links and texts that describe the game in very discouraging terms. It all may seam as a universal coalition against a game that promised a lot.

Sounds like PCWorld didn't get their paycheck in time.

Do you say that about every negative review? Not trying to be an a##hole but it sure seems like it

Or maybe he's on to something... I swear every game in recent memory with game-breaking glitches and shoddy programming have gotten low review scores. New Vegas has yet to receive anything lower than a 70%.. what good is a game if you can't actually play the damn thing without it getting a fucking conniption?

Something isn't right with the reviews if you ask me. Any other game with these type of glitches the reviewers would bash it and rant about how unplayable the game is, and then give it 50-60 score. New Vegas has all of these, and even gamers are reporting that the game has sequences that are unplayable because of the bugs (see: Bethesda forums).

These sites make money off ads these guys buy so ya no surprise. Look at any of the big sites n u tell me how many talked about the bugs in the last one tho no one can play a whole fallout 3 game on a console without hitting a few...
yep must b the cool-aid

especially when you look at MW2's online that was rampant with glitches and bugs, and even when they sent patches a new glitch or bug appeared, its funny because i didn't really see a mention of these glitches in the reviews

@dilhole

I've encountered one freezing issue so far after about 4 hours of gameplay. Also an annoying camera angle issue when the guy who tells you about the special bottle caps pops into your life. There's also been some stuttering in the game, but nothing game crashing or gameplay affecting.

So, it's not as bad as it could be, but I'm hoping it doesn't freeze up on me anymore.

I'm only seeing 8s and 9s, so I don't get the negative part.

Maybe those 8s could have been 9s and those 9s could have been 10s if not for the bugs.

Ive been playing it for a while and it IS buggy but to me more importantly its the exact same game from 2 years. That to me means it deserves a much lower score.

Dont get me wrong Fallout 3 was a blast and I enjoyed it. But so far New Vegas just seems like a reskinned version. Im sooooo dissapointed by the lack of innovation.

I don't know where the good reviews are coming from, Fallout 3 was not a good game, it was buggy, ugly, lame combat, horrible animation, bad story, and so on. New Vegas looks like same old same old. Fallout 2 is better than Fallout 3 in every way and it is 10 years older and in 2d.

New Vegas looks like the closest thing we'll get to a modern Fallout.

Fallout's main focus wasn't the combat. It was the open structure to the quests, the moral ambiquity, the dark humor, the RPG mechanics, the choices, the dialogue and writing etc..

How can you find all of that from a video or a screen?

I hope to God Bethesda gives Fallout 4 to Obsidian and gives them a big budget and lots of time.

If i say something bad about Fallout New Vegas, my bubbles magically disappear...
