Mojave, Mo’ Problems – Ten Ton Hammer Reviews Fallout: New Vegas

Posted Thu, Nov 04, 2010 by Medawky

What do you get when you combine a post-apocalyptic wasteland with the style and look of 1950’s American excess? You get one of the most popular and easily recognizable franchises in gaming today. The sequel to the massively popular Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas takes players away from East Coast and returns them to the Wild West, but is this latest adventure worth your hard earned dollars? Join Jason “Medawky” Bolton as he traverses the wastes to find out.



In addition to being an exceptional value, New Vegas is one of the few games that simply begs to be playing more than once. With its wide open world and multiple possible outcomes, this is as close to a ‘choose your own adventure’ book as there is. Will you be a people’s champion or a walking nightmare? Will you ally with a brutal dictator, an egotistical autocrat or a harsh military regime? Will you subvert all the players and install yourself as the leader of a (relatively) free New Vegas? All of these choices and tons more are available to you and with hundreds of locations to explore and a bevy of quests and tasks to undertake, no two players will ever have exactly the same experience
