    There’s one crucial element that’s somehow gone missing from most modern RPGs: the actual ability to role-play. You can play as Commander Shepard, but you can’t do anything a Spectre wouldn’t do. You can play as Geralt of Rivia, but you can’t do anything a Witcher wouldn’t do. Developers have *developed* a nasty habit of creating games that force players into a role and then tell them that they’re role-playing. Maybe you are, but in that case I think our definitions might differ.

    The opening moments of FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS see you shot in the head and left buried in a shallow grave somewhere in the Mojave Desert. Somehow still clinging to life, you’re rescued and brought to the town of Goodsprings, where the local doctor fixes you up and sends you on your way. This is where the magic of the game reveals itself, because you have a few options here: Investigate the reasons why you were shot; Set out to get revenge on the people who left you for dead; Stick around and help out the denizens of Goodsprings; Strike out into the Mojave Wasteland blindly and forget that this whole ordeal ever went down. What happened to you was unavoidable, but everything that happens now is completely up to you.

    The fantastic thing about NEW VEGAS is that it allows for so much. You really can do almost anything that you feel like. Gamble in a casino/Rob a casino. Explore abandoned homes/Break into occupied homes. Retrieve a rare item for an NPC/Shoot him in the back, take the reward, and the rare item. Pick out a nice house or apartment somewhere in the Mojave Wasteland and decorate it with all of the neat items you’ve accumulated. Help out several different warring factions, and then betray them all. Or you can just explore at random, discovering powerful or rare items along the way, or a series of quests that you never would’ve found otherwise.

    Obsidian Entertainment went into this project knowing full well what players want out of a game like this. A heavily branched main storyline with several different outcomes; warring factions that can be played against each other; emphasis on choice, immersion, and exploration. If you go out of your way to explore some lone compound, an abandoned apartment complex, or a cave system, there’s always something to be found, whether it’s a new questline or a rare item. The game does an excellent job of rewarding you for being a little adventurous.

    That’s the base game: a well-written, dialogue heavy, well-executed post-apocalyptic RPG that might never be truly appreciated for the freedom and immersion that it extravagantly imparts to its players. As is, it’s still one of the best games I’ve ever played, and one that you can believe the creators of PLANESCAPE: TORMENT and the original FALLOUT games had a hand in. And like I said, that’s the base game.

    -DEAD MONEY (4/5 Stars): This was the first expansion to be released for NEW VEGAS, and although it’s by far my favorite out of the bunch, there are a few elements that might put off a few players. For one, this is a survival game, through and through. You wake up in the shadow of a mythical casino, stripped of all your items, forced under penalty of death to break into a vault. It’s a very stressful experience, compounded by the extreme rarity of life-saving items, weapons of any kind, and how your primary enemies have to be dismembered before they stay dead. That, and after you’re finished, you can’t go back and explore, so it all has to be done in one shot.

    But that all kinda folds into the story of DEAD MONEY, which I’d go out on a limb and say has some of the best writing of any game of this generation. It’s a story of greed; that you’re essentially being punished for doing things that you always do in an RPG. It has a lot to say, which surprised the heck out of me. The characters you come into contact with are memorable, complex, and just plain fantastic to talk to. And the payoff to the entire thing is just brilliant. The path to the Sierra Madre is an uneven one, but wholly memorable. The words “Begin Again” will likely stick with you for some time.

    -HONEST HEARTS (3/5 Stars): Out of the bunch, HONEST HEARTS is probably the weakest. It starts out with a bang, after a caravan you’re tasked with protecting ends up biting the dust, leaving you stranded in the Zion National Park. Afterwards, you’re quickly caught in the crossfire between several warring tribes, with you becoming the decider in the matter. The whole ordeal is painfully short – only two hours compared to the others which provide eight or more – and the characters that guide you along aren’t the most interesting, which the exception of Joshua Graham. There’s no shortage of places to explore, and you can come and go as you please when the story is completed, but I’d say Zion itself is the most valuable contribution this expansion makes.

    -OLD WORLD BLUES (5/5 Stars): If I hadn’t been so taken by…

    This game seems to divert from what made Fallout 3 so revolotionary as far as level design… instead of a predominantly urban environment, you’ll find yourself basically in a desert. This in of itself isn’t bad, cause with the ‘Hardcore’ setting and how it encuorages you to play, it really comes together in a completely different experience then it’s predecessor, with equal to greater merit! I have gotten the first 3 DLC at launch (I’ll be getting the last one soon enough), and what justifies their cost is a priceless surrealist experience that can’t simply be described… I played the first DLC under the influence and I would say didn’t so much as ‘played’ the game as opposed to having ‘lived’ it. This game for it become enjoyable requires your investment in time and emotional involvement… some of the places I saw and gotten to experience in this game preside happily as one of the most enjoyable and serene moments of my gaming life.

    Also… there’s a overall thematic effect that this game seems allow you to indulge in, and that’s the feeling of being on the verge of discovering something new if you simply pursue the horizon for just long enough.

    Every single time I played this game, I experienced some sort of game halting glitch, whether it be the game freezing, an endless loading screen, or falling through the ground. And after every glitch, I would haul myself off the couch, restart my console, and enjoy another 3-4 hours of gaming nirvana. That’s right, I don’t care in the least that this game glitches more than any game I have ever owned. It doesn’t matter that the graphics may actually look worse than Fallout 3′s. It is irrelevant to me that on two separate occasions my auto save file was corrupted, forcing me to replay as much as 5 hours of gameplay. Fallout New Vegas is that much fun.

    For all of this games many technical faults, it is still one of my favorite gaming experiences, ever. The story is excellent and engaging. I found myself playing hours more than I had originally intended just so I could learn more about one of my many interesting companions. I lost even more hours promising myself that the hill that I was cresting in pursuit of the unknown was the last one for the day, knowing that I had to know what was beyond the next hill.

    There are hundreds of hours worth of gameplay in this game, and that is before you even get to the DLC. You will feel a connection to the character you make in this game that is hard to match because it isn’t what you say that defines your experience in this game as much as it is what you do. Your gameplay experience will be unique to you, and the way the Mojave Wasteland reacts to your presence is up to you to decide. The freedom the game offers is staggering, and early on, almost overwhelming. The amount of replay value is almost frightening.

    If you can look past the dated graphics, constant glitches, and considerable load times, you will find one of the deepest and most rewarding gaming experiences you can find anywhere. An instant classic and a must buy.
