Neat idea, but more of an Exspansion rather then a whole new Fallout.
I played thru a few hours, and I don't really see anything "new" or "ground breaking", unless you consider frequent lockups an awesome new addition....
Frequent saves is what you're going to have to do, frequent as in more often then just changing zones or entering/exiting doors. This game locks up constantly and at random times.
Its just silly to emagine the developers saying "we could'nt reproduce these bugs often enough to deal with them prior to launch", when the game locks up so often.
I was'nt able to get the game thru GameFly (rented it at a local video store), but after playing it for a few hours.. and constantly having to restart my PS3 (due to lockups).. I'm done till maybe the developers get off their lazy butts and decide to fix these problems.
I rate the game a 4 though, because if you liked Fallout 3.. you will like Fallout: New Vegas, but you'll prolly think of it as another exspansion too.

I've never played a fallout game before, but this one is a blast! Sure the occasional glitches can be annoying, but it's an all around solid game. I wish they updated the graphics from the last fallout, but they still put in a LOT of new things from what I hear and read. This probably could have been a $30 disc-based expansion for Fallout 3. If you like rpg games or the Fallout series, definitely give this game a try!
