Gameplay

As the post-apocalyptic universe of Fallout hits our screens again, we are getting ready for one hell of a ride! The game takes on a journey as the lone courier, you play as a courier for the Mojave Express as you wander the deserts of Mojave. You cross the deserts of Nevada and venture into the ruined city of Las Vegas.

 

The game starts your off waking up in a doctor clinic in the little town called Goodsprings, upon waking up you will find out that you were shot in the head while you were on your delivering route and buried still alive. Now you have a goal to venture into the wild wastelands of the Mojave and find the person that shot you! Along your dangerous journey, you will encounter NPCs, merchants, bandits, wild lifes and so much more! You will get Side quests from NPCs, you will find rare creatures and rare treasures, you might also find the treasure in the casinos if you are lucky. As with all the Fallout games, you have very little limitation to what you can do, you can wander where ever you want, you can kill who ever you want! The wasteland is harsh and expect a challenge, but why face this dangers alone? Find yourself a friend and wander the wastes together!

 

The overall gameplay of this game is good, and gives you alot of hours infront of the TV while you are exploring the harsh wasteland of the once populated and friendly Nevada Desert. With tons of quests and collectiables this game is a game worth playing!

 

Your Character!

Seeing as this is a fully open-world RPG, then there is one thing that is really imporant and that is your character! You can build your character however you want and you can even customize how he/she looks! When you kill enemies or complete quests you will earn EXP, and when you finally level up you will be able to raise your skills, you get a set amount of skill points to use on what ever skills you want when you level up! Also for ever other level you get you will also be able to pick certain perks! These perks gives you special abilites or they just boost the ones you already have! You will also have whats called S.P.E.C.I.A.Ls which is your main attributes, like Strength and Intelligence! You can become a weapon expert, and guy that loves blowing up stuff, or just someone that prefer to take a knife to a gun fight! You can also become the man with the silver tounge and get those laidies crazy! Your character is important and you have so many variations that you will try them all out!

 

The overall character creation in this game is awesome, which so many different type of characters you will never be able to try them all out!

 

Combat

Combat in this game is quite variated, you can use a gun in 3rd and 1st person, or you might wanna use a gatling gun? Your choice! You can pick up a knife or hammer and start punching skulls in! You can use mini nukes and flamers to give your enemies a hard time! Also since your character is in the position of having a Vault Pip-boy you will also get acsess to the very useful thing called V.A.T.S! This is a tool that lets you freeze the time and select what part of the body on your target you want aim for! You want to cripple your enemy's leg so he can't run away? Or do you want to cripple his arm to make his aim worse? You have so many different strategies in combat it is so fun! You can sneak up on them and take them out with a slienced weapon or maybe you prefer to just go in and gun them down? Your choice ones again!

 

The combat in this game is so fun and can be hard at times, but overall the game is alot of fun!

 

Story and Setting

The game doesn't really follow up on Fallout 3 at any point. Fallout: New Vegas takes place during the year 2281, four years after the events of Fallout 3, and 204 years after the Great War of 2077. The game makes you the main character at a rather bad point, you will start the game with a little cut scene where you will see yourself getting shot. You will later wake up in the clinic of a doctor in Goodsprings, from there you follow the main quest or do whatever the hell you want. You can go on a hunt, you can kill some people or raiders. Do what ever you want. Also if you think the game is a little easy then you can turn on the Hardcore mode! Which will also able you to get a achievement. The Hardcore mode makes the game harder by changing a few things, like that you have to eat,sleep and drink to survive! So get out there and find the sorry idiot that shot you and get your revenge!
