Fallout - New Vegas

New Vegas is really the wrong name for this desert city. There, it does not look new, but come down and break out: New Vegas is what was left after a nuclear disaster of former gambling mecca Las Vegas. Here is gezocht still. But just shot too sharp. And instead of tourists shady, well-armed figures creeping through the streets.

Fallout - New Vegas


The developers are not tired of emphasizing that it is in "Fallout - New Vegas" to a new, stand-alone game. The predecessor of "Fallout 3 games" to America's east coast and finally had to do with Nevada to nothing. The reality is different, because the manufacturer changed the basic game play as good as anything. Still early to determine how your character looks like and what to start skills they bring. It uses a point system is used. A set number of points you distribute to various skills such as endurance, intelligence, charisma. As the game progresses you will always add points to distribute freely and thus enhance targeted. Some of the individual values rise but also by experience and practice.

Lifeless entry
At the beginning of your character is dead Clinically dead, to be exact. Cause of death: Shot in the head. By chance, however, is a doctor in the area, where the resuscitation is successful and has specialized in plastic surgery. This is handy because that way you can determine how your face looks like. Nose size, chin, laugh lines? The doctor addressed.

The shot in the head clears unfortunately also the memory of the main character. The player knows only that he was traveling as a courier and delivered in the desert packages. But who really was this messenger? And who wanted to kill him? Find it out!

The road to knowledge is so rocky as it is entertaining. The development studio Obsidian Entertainment is renowned for sophisticated plot threads. It was only after 50 successful completion of contracts to get the identity of the character on the track. There are 50 bonus missions that double the game time. On the way you gain experience and bottle caps (currency in North America, Post Apocalypse).

With open eyes through the death zone
Whether you fight on the side of law enforcement or crooks, up to you. In any case, you should run with open eyes through the desert to New Vegas. On the one hand, it could come at any time to attack the other everywhere are useful items such as ammunition or weapons hidden. And just weapons you can not find enough. For pistols or rifles with excessive use of some type on the mind. With the right parts of similar firearms mostly but a fix is available. In contrast to previous weapons can even restore completely and then are like new. They shoot from either free hand or with a sophisticated target system. In the latter paused the game and determine exactly where to land the hit. How well this works, is among others dependent on the experience gained with the weapon used and the distance to the opponent.

Fallout - New Vegas

Experts succeeds, the enemy to fire the weapon from his hand. A hit in the leg makes the opponent much more slowly. When using the target system the game the hit shows in slow motion. This looks impressive, sometimes off - impressively brutal. For the German version of the game is expected here again with a significant mitigation.

Casino visits for winners
Vegas without the gambling would be unthinkable, even after a nuclear disaster. At roulette or blackjack you earn with a little luck a couple of bottle caps. However, prohibited weapons in the casinos and are collected at the entrance. In dark alleys drifting around but also traders who sell well camouflaged shooting machine. They channel, such weapons can pass through the input control.

Whether the casino, on the streets of New Vegas, in remote settlements or in the middle of the desert - there are plenty of new challenges. How to do dirty work for gang members to drive a gambling debt, or join soldiers. In between times were also allies beat on your page to follow, step by step and follow simple instructions. The used command system is compared to "Fallout 3" will be much better and easier to go out of hand.

First Impressions: Fallout - New Vegas
The differences with "Fallout 3" are in the details. Your character must now go to a doctor if she is injured. It is not enough to interject a few pills. In addition, regular sleep is now in a secure shelter is essential. Formerly a short break was enough in open terrain. What is, however, also remained the same: the frequent load times when switching between locations and entering buildings. Other games it is possible now better to prevent such a thing.

Apart from the many new features and changes are not necessary. For even the predecessor was nearly perfect. Just as he lives "Fallout - New Vegas" by the unique atmosphere of the gigantic depth and again a hopefully thrilling action. The chances are that more than good.
