[ Game -> Review ] - More info on Company: Obsidian Entertainment | More info on Game: Fallout: New Vegas

Full review here. Here are their conclusions:

The good

* Epic storyline with great writing and acting
* Incredible wealth of customization options
* Las Vegas provides a unique and convincing new setting
* Huge and detailed world to explore
* So very many side quests
* Hardcore mode provides additional challenge

The bad

* Terribly long load times
* Freezing and game ending bugs
* Few gameplay differences compared to previous game
* Quest directions aren't always clear

The ugly

* Getting stuck inside a rock for the third time in one sitting

Verdict: Buy

Back in the 1990's we didn't need radars to point us at our Fallout quests...

Seems even these indie-reviewers seem kinda stupid at times. Yeah I took notice to that one to.

While the radar was good to have in the sense that it pointed to the location, have a radar that points to every little room, to every little thing where that little thing that you need is, well that is...is stupid. IS!
