Fallout: New Vegas looks too much like Fallout 3

The best thing about Fallout series is that it does not feature standard medieval fantasy storyline; instead, Fallout series takes us to the distant post apocalyptic future in which humankind is fighting for its bare survival. Storyline is new and refreshing and if you are tired from fighting with skeletons, demons and wizards, Fallout is the right thing for you.

I recently pre-ordered this for PS3 about a month ago and have since canceled the order. As the article states, it does feel like it's an expansion pack. I dare say, possible cash grab, a "tide me over til FO4 comes out" effort.

Yea, I know, graphics don't make a game but having put 100+ hours into FO3 it'll simply feel too familiar to justify dropping top dollar for the same experience (with a few minor changes).

On an unrelated note, I pre-ordered GT5 (using all my coupons on Amazon) and with free shipping, I got it for a cool 40 dollars. Not bad if I do say so myself.

I found every location in Fallout: Bethesda except the radiated one which is painfully hard to "discover".

By the end of the game I was rocking enough stuff to complete the entire game with what I had in my unusually large desk... which still looked like trash despite my HUGE amount of caps.

You go there...but the back entrance. I wonder if there is some way of registering it with out dying.

ON TOPIC: This is not an expansion. The Mojave Wasteland is about the same size as the Capitol Wasteland.

I was really hoping they'd upgrade their engine or something. I absolutely loved the gameplay in Fallout 3, but graphically it's pretty weak.

When games like Uncharted 2, God of War 3, InFamous 2, Heavy Rain, Halo Reach, Gears of War 3, Alan Wake, etc. Are pushing the bar graphically, this game looks mediocre.

we al pray brother that Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls V run on the id 5 technology.

Thing is, all of the games you mentioned are exclusives that take full advantage of the platform that they're on. New Vegas has the disadvantage of being a massive open-world multiplatform game that doesn't have the luxury of using any one platform to its maximum potential. I have faith that Bethesda and Obsidian won't disappoint come fall, they've always made awesome games and I'm positive that this will be another great addition to their catalog.

As long as the graphics are on par with the first, I really don't care.

Now, if the content isn't on a similar level to that of the first, then we have a problem.

I loved Fallout 3, and I'll be the first to agree that both 3 and New Vegas look exactly the same, but the way I see it I could pay $60 for an entirely new area, new quests and new characters or $50 for all of the Fallout 3 DLC which I still want to play badly. So I'll pay the extra $10 for New Vegas.

I wish Bethesda would drop the DLC prices though. I'd pick them all up this second if they were $5.99

it. for me , fallout 3 was the most immersive rpg ive ever played, i actualy got every achievement and even after that i kept going and went into every building and every area in the map and explored it fully, i put 80-100 hours into it. and i felt it was short lol. you seriously dissapoint me , how do u say this is the same game but slightly diffrent. its in a diffrent world with new people and mission. yea 60$ on a 100+ hour rpg isnt worth the investment huh.. gess youll have more fun on one of those 5-8 hour games.

im not bothered about the looks as i am about the length , Fallout 3 although a great game its main quest was surprisingly short for an RPG i beat it in 15 hours, hope New Vegas is twice as long as that

I just hope they fixed the PS3 version all the bugs and slow down ruined the experience for me.

siyrobbo2979d ago

if it is just like an add on pack, thats good enough for me

i just need more fallout, as long as the quality is on par with 3 i'll be happy

pippoppow2979d ago

If it's just like an ad-on pack then it should sell for less than $60.

im happy to spend 60$ on Fallout:NV

siyrobbo2979d ago

50+ hours gameplay is well worth Anyones money, pounds in my case as I'm English

Acquiescence2979d ago

for months I thought New Vegas was standard DLC. Then I realised it was taking an awful long time coming out, so it must have been something more. Don't really understand the hype that has surrounded it for so long either; it always looked liked more Fallout 3 content for the hardcore fans.
