Marco Fiori of Xboxer360.com writes "It’s not the big things in New Vegas that make the game stand out, but rather the obscure details that make up its world. After all, there’s nothing particularly new that’s worth shouting about. V.A.T.S. returns in all its slow-motion glory, as does the skinned Oblivion engine. You’re greeted by another American post-apocalyptic landscape to explore, filled with unique characters, settlements and quests. So why does it make such an impression on the player?"
