TheSixthAxis: Fallout: New Vegas Review

Your enjoyment of the game will largely depend on how much you’re willing to forgive the issues. If you don’t mind working around them then this could be a game of the year contender, otherwise, you might just think it’s broken.

"We’ve also had a couple of complete system freezes and an almost constant case of occasional and sporadic mini-freezes which only cause the game to stutter for a fraction of a second but are nevertheless extremely frustrating"

Says it all they used the same engine as the previous games without patching. DAMN LAZY DEVS. Well guess what you can kiss my £40 goodbye! No way I am buying it now. I just cancelled my pre-order had this and Rorona pre-ordered from The freezing and glitches is what ruined it for me on fallout 3. I will probably pickup the pc version off steam when its cheap as it will have mod support so at least something will outweigh the constant crashing and bugs.

yeah i agree with what you said.

I will gamefly it instead of buying it now.

I got six hours so far on Fallout NV and it is running very well . I just crashed twice to the desktop so it is far from beeing as buggy as Fo3.

It is better then what I was expecting. Very,very good addicting game.

I dunno man, you've only played it six hours and it has crashed twice? And a reviewer pans a GotY sequel specifically calling it out as buggy? NO THANKS. There's enough awesome stuff coming out this holiday season to make this a pass on it @ $60 and wait for a used copy title, right there.

There are so many other options for entertainment this season that actually work as they are supposed to. I will wait for a cheap copy of this game next year. I was really looking forward to it too. :(

It crashed twice in six hours and that's BETTER than what you were expecting? Dear God.

What would the game have to have done to be worse than expected? Burst into flames and burn your house down?

I will pass on the PS3 version if they have not bothered to even try to stabilize the engine on the PS3 in the what? Two years since F3?

It's pathetic that they released the GotY in such a crappy state, but it was CRIMINAL to not even make an effort to patch it. They obviously had enough resources to repackage and resell the product as a GotY, yet they couldn't bother to get it into a state where it wasn't essentially defective? Talk about sh*tty ethics.

If this review is accurate with regard to this issue, to not improve the engine for the next product borders on outright fraud. Just think how buggy this title will be when they add DLC.

I'm hoping this review was just an unstable version, but if not: F*CK YOU, Bethesda! You guys have no PS3 skills.

Blame Obsidian, not Bethesda. There the ones who were to lazy to try to fix anything and just built on top of a buggy game.

Baka-akaB2828d ago

no i blame bethesda .it's not as if they told obsidian , "you have a choice , build a new game from the ground up , with a new engine , or hell our newly acquired and exclusive id tech 5 ".

They kept them on the same crappy engine that hardly anyone would succeed at fixing
