4.5 Amazing game, ruined by Steam OpenFlanker | 11/08/2011 | See all OpenFlanker's reviews (1) Having played Fallout since its inception I was utterly amazed when Fallout 3 came along. New Vegas takes the genius of Fallout as an FPS and makes it truly amazing. New mods, factions, weapon modding, even the ability to make ammo... all genius additions.BEFORE YOU BUY THIS GAME BE AWARE!!!!When you install this game you are forced to open a Steam account. Steam servers are notoriously slow and I struggled to get an account set up. Why you need a Steam account when you've bought the DVD is completely beyond me. Having to have a Steam account left an extremely bitter taste in my mouth, especially as it adds a dedicated source of Steam advertising to your computer.Would have been 5 stars without Steam.
