Following up on the success of Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas is a journey back to the southwest, the roots of the franchise. As such Bethesda gave the project to Chris Avellone and his team at Obsidian Studios, many members of which worked on the original Fallout games for PC. While featuring some bugs as to be expected from the glitchy and aged Gamebryo engine, the overall experience is a step above with fantastic writing more true to the source material than the third installment and dripping with charm. The core gameplay remains mainly the same with some notable refinements including ammunition crafting and an almost completely redone Companions system. A cast of star cameos add that extra special touch to make the game truly stand out.
