On décerne rarement un 10/10. Et New Vegas n’était pas assez poli pour mériter un 15. Alors, réfléchissez, ne percevez pas cette note comme celle de la perfection. Car, ce Fallout possède ses défauts, des choses qui pourront paraître insurmontables à certains (je vous plains de tout mon coeur). Heureusement, ce qui compte vraiment ici, c’est le gigantisme, la maîtrise, le raffinement, la fidélité et la complexité de cette aventure. Il faut célébrer les développeurs qui ont l’échine de mener un tel projet à bien. Car, ce New Vegas, mes frères, est bien Fallout 3. Et maintenant, je n’ai plus qu’une peur, finir par l’épuiser.

So here’s the deal folks, Fallout New Vegas is a work of art plain and simple. It’s ability to echo the desperation of the American political landscape through a clever collection of wit, technical know how, and gripping storytelling is second to none. Owning this game is a requirement for anyone that appreciates the form. This is the part where you buy the game.

Fallout: New Vegas, looks and plays exactly the same as Fallout 3. But the additions that Obsidian have made push the survival angle even further to provide a much more immersive and authentic experience, and just like its predecessor New Vegas proves to be a role-playing masterpiece.

After Fallout 3, veterans of the series had lost any kind of hope they would ever set foot in a new post-apocalyptic world that they could appreciate without the help of mods. That’s why New Vegas is all the more impressive, because despite its problematic foundation, it turned into a game that even the most elitist and conservative of fans will play until exhaustion.

El cambio de desarrolladora no se ha notado en el juego: quizás se podía esperar que Obsidian hubiese aportado algo más que un cambio de escenario y unas cuantas pinceladas en la jugabilidad. Pero también cabe preguntarse: ¿Por qué cambiar algo que ha funcionado tan bien? La recomendación es clara: si te gustó Fallout 3, no dudes un instante con hacerte con New Vegas. Es más de lo mismo, y tan bueno como uno de los mejores juegos de 2008, con una completa región que descubrir y en la que perderse, una mirada a la situación en el Oeste de Norteamérica y una avalancha de misiones. No es una bomba nuclear que estalla en tu cara inesperadamente, pero ni engaña ni pretende ser otra cosa: es un Fallout.

Players able to peer past Fallout New Vegas‘ visual hitches will find one of the most rewarding and intricate console experiences of the current generation. Like its predecessor, Vegas is more than a game- it’s a intricately detailed, mesmerizing world which manages to fit on a single DVD. With a patch or so, the title’s ambitions may be able to shine as bright as the iridescent glow emitted from the old strip itself.

Obsidian nous offre un Fallout pur et dur que les fans apprécieront. Une difficulté relevée, un univers toujours aussi immersif, un aspect RPG aux petits oignons et pour finir une sensation de liberté jamais ressentie dans un jeu vidéo, Fallout New Vegas est un jeu sans équivalent. Malgré ses petits défauts comme ses graphismes vieillissants, interface qui mériterait un rafraichissement, des compagnons pas assez développés, c'est un titre qui vous gardera devant l'écran pendant des heures. Très réussi, Fallout New Vegas nous offre une expérience de jeu unique. C'est plus qu'un jeu, c'est un univers que nous invite à découvrir Obsidian.

Ultimately, whether or not you enjoy Fallout: New Vegas depends on your tolerance for handling bugs. Personally, I didn't find them distracting enough to ruin the experience for me, and a few crashes over the course of 80+ hours felt like a small price to pay for one of my favorite games of the year. Some players will get fed up more quickly than others, just as I'm sure some won't care a whit about glitchy A.I. or weird textures problems. If you can see the forest for the buggy trees, you'll quickly see that Fallout: New Vegas is the pinnacle of the first-person RPG genre.

En retournant aux sources de la série Fallout, Obsidian signe de loin sa meilleure production. Et si côté gameplay, malgré quelques ajouts très appréciables, le jeu ne s'éloigne pas vraiment des bases posées par Oblivion et Fallout 3, l'univers, lui, est totalement imprégné de l'esprit de la licence d'Interplay, de sa maturité et de sa crudité jusqu'à sa qualité d'écriture qui rend la moindre quête secondaire passionnante. Cependant pour profiter de toute la profondeur et de toute la richesse que peut offrir Fallout: New Vegas, il faudra passer outre un enrobage désastreux. Car on parle bien, ici, respectivement de perfection et de médiocrité.

Fallout: New Vegas isn’t dramatically different to Fallout 3, but it’s not just a mere re-skin of Bethesda’s offering either. Many will appreciate the additional layer of complexity and the more authentic Fallout feel. It’s all enough to make Fallout: New Vegas easily a better, if less impactful game than its predecessor.

In conclusion, Fallout: New Vegas not only successfully draws players into the Fallout world once again, but does so with flying colors. Its addictive gameplay and expansive world allow for players to truly have an exceptional RPG experience. The new installation’s developers did a good job of not causing overkill on the added abilities and tweaked gameplay like Valve did with the Left 4 Dead series. Returning the franchise to some of its original principals not only paid off, but did so with style.

Beyond the technical shortcomings, I can’t put the damn game down. And like I said, it’s big. Really big. Dauntingly big. But engagingly so. The writing is much tighter, the characters more engaging, the world more tangible and your investment in it so much more personal - here’s hoping we see a culmination of both efforts for the obvious fourth installment on some bugless new tech.

Obsidian levert met New Vegas een echte toptitel af die Fallout 3 op zowat alle vlakken het nakijken geeft. Logisch dan ook dat New Vegas, net als zijn voorganger twee jaar geleden, een serieuze optie op de Spel van het Jaar-trofee neemt.

Not really a major leap forward over Fallout 3, but certainly not just more of the same either. The variety of missions and random tasks will keep you entertained for hours and the few new additions serve to provide a welcome distraction in terms of crafting, gambling and reputation management. Jump in, but make sure you come up for air now and again.

New Vegas tenía la complicada labor de suceder a un juego como Fallout 3, con sus cientos de horas de juego más sus múltiples expansiones, usando el mismo motor y un sistema de juego parecido. El resultado es tremendamente satisfactorio gracias principalmente al talento de Obsidian para crear personajes e historias, que consiguen sobreponerse a cierta sensación de "deja vu" ante la similitud de ambos juegos.

It's fair to say that Obsidian has never really had a defining success. For years it's been the studio that gives us "almost but not quite" games - from the unrealised ambition of Knights of the Old Republic 2, to the scrappy mess of Alpha Protocol. Well, that reputation dies today. Despite the numerous bugs, New Vegas is a magnificent RPG, one that stands head and shoulders above its predecessor. More importantly, it's also the game that Fallout fans have been waiting for. Van Buren can finally rest in peace.

With a hugely expanded perk system, new traits you can use to give your character both an advantage and a disadvantage, warring factions to join or make enemies out of, plenty of new features to dig into, and better dialogue, Fallout: New Vegas is better than Fallout 3 in many ways. Not everything has improved or changed, though, as the denizens of the Mojave still move and act unnaturally, and the vast number of bugs and issues are very difficult to just ignore. Even with all that, though, this is still the best game Obsidian has ever made, and finally we are seeing this studio live up to the potential we all knew they had. Now we just need some patches to fix a few bugs...

I think the best way to describe Fallout: New Vegas is to say it's Fallout 3 with a bit of Alpha Protocol, which makes sense. But even with that extra little bit, New Vegas is most definitely a Fallout game. More specifically, it's a Fallout 3 game. So regardless of what I or anyone else says, you should already know if you'd enjoy it. If you don't, then you haven't played Fallout 3, in which case, shame on you. I enjoyed Fallout 3 and I certainly enjoyed New Vegas.

Fallout 3 introduced us to a bold new vision of a post-apocalyptic America and provided one of the most satisfying RPG experiences in years. Obsidian’s worthy follow-up brings the action west to the bright lights of New Vegas, and while it doesn’t perfect the franchise formula, it adds an intriguing new chapter to the series lore.

If New Vegas were being reviewed as a piece of software, as a technical product, the judgement would be absolutely appalling. These are games, however, and deserve to be reviewed for the experiences they provide. The experience of New Vegas is sublime and so incredibly big that the ratio between getting annoyed by freezes and getting excited by the game's wonderfully engaging world firmly favors a positive outlook. Very few games could be good enough to make up for serious technical errors. In fact, I could count them on one hand. New Vegas is good enough, though. And being good enough to make up for system lock-ups is the highest praise you could give any game.

Fallout: New Vegas is still a fantastic game, only slightly held back by its increasingly outdated tech. Obsidian has created a totally compelling world and its frustrations pale into insignificance compared to the immersive, obsessive experience on offer. Just like the scorched scenery that provides its epic backdrop, New Vegas is huge and sprawling, sometimes gaudy, even downright ugly at times – but always effortlessly, shamelessly entertaining.

In New Vegas, the fun Fallout 3 formula is intact, with more polished combat, high-quality side missions, and the exciting setting of the Vegas strip. Unfortunately, the bugs also tagged along for the ride. If Obsidian and Bethesda had polished up the game by fixing the AI, improving the animations or even gotten it to run smoothly, perhaps it would feel less like a giant expansion of Fallout 3 and more like its own game. Be that as it may, Fallout 3 was a great game, so as similar as it is, Fallout: New Vegas is still a fun ride that offers more for fans of the series to enjoy. If you can look past its shortcomings, this is definitely a wasteland worth exploring.

Now as we tally up our winnings, we see all this innovation and all of this amazing detail and the total figure is that Fallout: New Vegas is one amazing game. Now even though it is not truly Fallout 4, so much effort has been put into making New Vegas an amazing experience all in its own. With a major improved control scheme, the introduction of Hardcore Mode, beautifully detailed environments and national landmarks, Fallout: New Vegas is the real Entertainment Capital of the World.

Kalifornien und Washington waren toll, aber von allen Fallout-Regionen ist Nevada für mich die bisher beste: einleuchtend, überraschend vielfältig und dicht vollgestopft mit Abenteuern. In mancher Hinsicht übertrifft New Vegas seinen Vorgängen Fallout 3 noch, insbesondere bei den klasse gestalteten Begleitern und der immensen Sammelvielfalt. Dem Gegenüber steht aber die allzu schwache Rahmenhandlung. Und die simple Tatsache, dass sich die Zeit seit Fallout 3 weitergedreht hat: Spiele wie Mass Effect 2 definieren heute, wie filmhaft mitreißend man eine Geschichte inszenieren kann. Dagegen wirkt New Vegas steif und altbacken. Macht nichts, denn ein fantastischer, hochmotivierender und nebenbei herrlich witziger Spaß ist das neue Fallout trotzdem.

During my time I couldn't set the controller down. It's fun and that is ultimately what a game should be about and New Vegas hits it on the head. It's eloquently and elaborately woven mission structure is something that should never be changed, and in fact I would like to see it in other games as well. The Mojave wasteland is packed with memorable locations and characters and is a worthy followup to Fallout 3. I just expected more from New Vegas but in the end it all feels like a giant expansion upon the premise laid out two years ago. Again, not a bad thing if that's what you're looking for, more of the same isn't bad with this formula.

PlayStation 3Playstation Illustrated
The similarities between Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas are fairly obvious to the point you could probably get away with labeling it "Fallout: 3.5." To this point, your enjoyment of New Vegas will depend greatly on your opinion of Fallout 3. Changes have been made (mostly for the better), though they aren't so drastic to win over players who weren't into Fallout 3.

I can't think of a better RPG that has come out in 2010. Obsidian has made an outstanding game and someday, they'll crank out a product that isn't barely holding itself together, but until that day, New Vegas has so much of what makes RPGs so great – influencing the events and people around you, the joy of discovery and playing a role in a world that matters.

And that’s Fallout: New Vegas in a nutshell, and Fallout 3 for that matter except for a different plotline. There is no escaping the fact that Fallout: New Vegas is more or less Fallout 3. The map might be bigger, the side quests more expansive, but if you’ve played Fallout 3, you’re not going to find anything dramatically new here. Good thing? I think so. Great thing? Probably not.

Fallout New Vegas is a compelling package that offers a variety in activities and ways to play. Players will find an interesting story that is crafted around the decisions they have made. It excels at immersion and it can grab even the most reluctant players. There are some minor issues with repeating player models and music but with a game this size they seem small and insignificant. All of the immersion in the world can’t stop players from being pulled away by the show stopping bugs. These issues should not detract from those interested in New Vegas from checking it out. New players and Fallout veterans alike will appreciate the long length and amount of lore present.

Fallout: New Vegas is an expansive and complicated RPG that encourages you to see and do as much as you can. This is an explorer's game, always lavishing new and interesting quests on you and giving you a lot of flexibility in how you approach many of them. It builds upon Fallout 3's mechanics in interesting and esoteric ways, making it a comfortable evolution to one of 2008's best games. A few glitches and performance issues occasionally let it down, yet Fallout: New Vegas is periodically awesome and often compelling. If you crave an expansive and flexible adventure in which your choices actually matter, this is one gamble that will pay off.

Despite a fantastic world and a great core game, the game has quite a few issues with bugs, and many of the new features – such as companion wheels and "iron sights" on weapons – just don't work particularly well. However, like all of the previous Obsidian titles mentioned, Fallout: New Vegas is, at its core, a gem. If you're a fan of Fallout 3, Oblivion or other recent WRPGs, there's a lot to like.
85
Xbox 360Game Informer Magazine
Maybe Obsidian’s lack of familiarity with Bethesda’s technology resulted in New Vegas’ plateau. Maybe Bethesda barked orders to make it identical to Fallout 3. In any case, gamers should expect more of the same from this follow-up. If Fallout 3 holds a place among your top 10 games of this generation like it does for me, another rewarding 200-plus hours of survival awaits you.

Fallout 3 zählt zu meinen Lieblingsspielen, New Vegas jedoch nicht. Das hat viele Gründe, von der veralteten Technik über die weniger liebevoll gestaltete Spielwelt bis hin zu einigen Interface- und Bug-Zicken, die ich Ende 2010 eigentlich nicht mehr sehen will. Trotzdem habe ich es sehr gern durchgespielt und werd’s auch noch ein zweites Mal tun – die Fülle an Quests, die vielen Entscheidungen und der Hardcore-Modus haben mich nämlich prima unterhalten! Mein Tipp: Kaufen Sie sich erst mal Fallout 3 und zocken Sie’s genüsslich durch. Wenn Sie dann noch Lust auf mehr haben, ist New Vegas das richtige Spiel für Sie.

There are things to see, sure, but the rewards aren’t nearly as interesting in New Vegas. I didn’t get as much out of heading for intriguing things on the horizon as I did in the previous game.

It felt great to go back to the Wasteland and explore, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I’d been here before. I did like the location of the game more, but that’s also because I like Las Vegas. I still found myself exploring a lot and had a great time, but players looking for something new in the Fallout universe won’t find it here. This is a must have for Fallout 3 fans that were looking for more of the same thing, but this won’t change the mind of people who didn’t like the last game.

If Fallout: New Vegas were an expansion pack or DLC, it'd be instantly worth the money, but asking gamers to put down $60 for a title that adds almost nothing new, yet is chock full of technical issues is a bit much.

So with that in mind, it’s very hard to weigh up just how good Fallout: New Vegas is. In most respects, it is the next development of the work done through DLC of Fallout 3, with interesting missions, diverse characters and the same top notch RPG gameplay. In other respects though, this is a rehash of every idea found in 2008’s game, albeit with more technical issues than a Movie tie-in. If you’ve exhausted Fallout 3 and all of the DLC, New Vegas will fill the void in your life. If not, perhaps stick with that bonafide classic before delving into the brilliant, but flawed world of New Vegas.

All of the excellent things from Fallout 3 are present in New Vegas, but most of the bad things have come along for the ride as well. There are definitely enough additions to the title that will warrant sceptical Fallout 3 fans purchase, but there probably isn’t anything here that will change the mind of someone who didn’t like Fallout 3, though I personally found the story more engaging in New Vegas. Despite a healthy number of bugs and minor irritations, if you let it, Fallout New Vegas will consume you and you will love it dearly. Fallout New Vegas grabs hold of you for an absurd amount of time, like no other game can, and if this is to be the last Fallout game based on this engine, it is a very enjoyable last hurrah indeed! As a standalone game, New Vegas is a really enjoyable and massive RPG, but if you played Fallout 3 to exhaustion, you might want to think carefully before going back to the Fallout universe.

Obsidian has done a fantastic job with New Vegas, sure it may seem dated when you look at it, but scratch the surface and you are met with a compelling storyline and character progression that will make you forget all about the flaws. New Vegas gives you as much as you put into it, and the beauty is that you can put in as much as you want, because it will keep on giving.

Fallout: New Vegas is a testament to the fact that the small details are what can really matter in a game. For seasoned Fallout fans, New Vegas will represent a huge step in the right direction. Obsidian’s writers have crafted a game world which is arguably far superior to Bethesda’s; however, for players who aren’t looking for a more authentic Fallout game - or simply don’t care - this game is basically just more of the same. It’s Fallout 3 with a wild west coat of paint to go along with its twisted 1950s aesthetic. That will mean more to some than it will to others, but either way, it’s a great adventure.

Utan dessa buggar hade betyget självklart blivit högre, men i dagsläget är så inte fallet. Ser man bortom dessa buggar är dock Fallout: New Vegas det bästa spel jag har spelat i år. Det är ännu bättre, djupare och mer förfinat jämfört med Fallout 3. Obsidian Entertainment har verkligen slagit huvudet på spiken i och med Fallout: New Vegas och det är utan knussel deras överlägset bästa spel hittils. Cirkeln är sluten och det är glädjande att se att fadäser såsom Alpha Protocol var en tillfällig svaghet. Black Isle skapade magi med de två första Fallout-spelen och när de än en gång får ta hand om den klassiska spelserien har denna gång Obsidian Entertainment än en gång skapat spelmagi. Synd bara med onödiga buggar som blandar smolk i bägaren.

Men trots att det känns som om jag är kvar i samma spel som hösten 2008 kommer beroendet tillbaka. Efter 50 speltimmar känner jag fortfarande suget efter att utforska det sönderbombade, nedgångna ödelandskapet i jakt på bättre utrustning och vapen, mer kapsyler och fler hemligheter att upptäcka. Jag trodde att jag var klar med den här världen för längesedan, men Obsidian har visat hur fel jag hade.

Although it’s visually dated, New Vegas is a bona fide Fallout title that contains well over 100 potential hours of quality post-apocalyptic RPG gaming that ought to please existing fans and gain the series many new ones. Although not a direct sequel, it’s a worthy successor to Fallout 3 and once its gameplay-impeding bugs are stomped from digital existence, it’ll offer an immense experience with a wealth of worthwhile replayability.

Despite the numerous glitches and eerily similar gameplay to its predecessor, Fallout: New Vegas is a quality game through and through with lots of replay value and slight improvements made to the formula. Sadly the game is lacking that one last phase of polish and ultimately it’s rather hard to overlook the technical flaws that hamper the otherwise excellent experience. If you enjoyed Fallout 3 then by all means pack your bags and head to New Vegas.

Fans of either the original Fallout games, or 2008's Fallout 3 will find plenty to love in this new installment. New weapons, characters and locations, plus a fresh sensibility marry to make New Vegas a near-perfect continuation of the series.

It's not a surprise that Fallout: New Vegas sticks closely to Fallout 3's structure and style. But if it weren't for the game's way-too-long list of technical issues, New Vegas would actually be better than its predecessor. Instead, it's a well-written game with so many issues that some of you might want to take a pass, at least until some of this nonsense gets fixed. Yet, for all its flaws, I'd consider taking a second run through it, if only to see how some of the game's finer points play out with different choices.

The only reason this game is going to get a semi-low score is because of these continual problems. Fallout 3 had some issues, but nothing like this. For the most part Fallout 3 played well and it was a fun experience without much worry in mind. For Fallout: New Vegas these issues have to be addressed and stuff has to get patched soon because it's very unacceptable and it takes away from the experience.

If only it was a stable product and didn't ship with so many bugs, I would've given New Vegas a higher score. As it is, this review reflects the game shortly after launch. Future patches will no doubt fix a number of issues, but these problems shouldn't keep you from trying the game out...eventually. If you do start playing now, you know what to expect, but despite all of the bugs and tech issues, I still loved my experience in New Vegas. I even look forward to booting up the game and playing through from the beginning again someday.

Fallout: New Vegas is an expansive and complicated RPG that encourages you to see and do as much as you can. This is an explorer's game, always lavishing new and interesting quests on you and giving you a lot of flexibility in how you approach many of them. It builds upon Fallout 3's mechanics in interesting and esoteric ways, making it a comfortable evolution to one of 2008's best games. It's unfortunate that it suffers from so many bugs and other inconsistencies. Role-playing veterans expect glitches in games this complex, but this one far exceeds tolerable limits for these kinds of issues. And yet as busted as it is, Fallout: New Vegas is periodically awesome and consistently compelling. If you've got the stomach for some technological lunacy, this is one gamble that will pay off.

The gameplay and style's going to be familiar for those that play Fallout 3, which can be a good and bad thing. Those looking for a huge improvement over Fallout 3 will be disappointed, but fans of the series will enjoy going back into the world again with a huge amount of space to explore. Combat outside of VATS still isn't fun for me, but the gameplay and user interface improvements are nicely done. Bugs, bugs, and more bugs can bring the game to a halt.

Fallout New Vegas n'est autre qu'une évolution de Fallout 3 mais risque cependant de faire de nombreux adeptes grâce à l'apparition notamment du système de factions qui donne un peu de piment au jeu. Certes, le moteur graphique est vieux, la direction artistique à la ramasse mais on ne peut pas nier que Fallout New Vegas reste un excellent jeu de rôle, long et intéressant sur le long terme. Un bon investissement pour ceux qui veulent passer de nombreuses heures devant leur console.

Bien que l'équipe de développement ait changé, Fallout New Vegas ne propose pas une réelle innovation par rapport au troisième épisode. Le rendu graphique est le même - voire bien moins réussi sur le plan artistique - le gameplay ne s'enrichit que de quelques petites subtilités toutefois très pertinentes. La réelle force de cet épisode se situe très clairement au niveau de son scénario finement écrit, nous offrant une réelle immersion. L'exploration étant toujours au centre de notre progression, il n'est pas rare de dévier de notre itinéraire pour découvrir de nouveaux lieux, de nouveaux secrets enfouis. Bref, les fans de Fallout 3 y trouveront leur compte en raison d'une approche similaire, tandis que les fans de la première heure apprécieront le rapprochement de l'univers aux deux premiers volets de la série.

Il faut prendre la mesure de ce qu’accomplit ce New Vegas, projet lesté par son horizon d’exploitation de licence juteuse, sa finition honteuse et sa direction artistique tâtonnante. En dépit de ces défauts, et fort d'un game design de qualité assuré par le précédent épisode, le joueur fait l’expérience de ce qu’un RPG bien écrit et bien construit peut réussir de mieux : faire vivre un passionnant récit comme une expérience participative, et non plus comme une expérience par procuration. Quelque part, c'est aussi ce à quoi le jeu vidéo narratif peut aspirer de plus grand.

Paradoxically, New Vegas doesn't make good on much new on any front, and it takes a hit both as experience and product for it. As fond as I am of the idea of an alternate reality Fallout 3, we shouldn't forget that game was released in late 2008, and Obsidian's contribution to the franchise looks and feels every day of two years old, maybe more. But it's still a giant, cool, twisted, funny world to explore, chock full of a staggering number of adventures. Is that really the sort of experience you can afford to pass up?

Look, many of those that loved Fallout 3 are absolutely going to love New Vegas, whatever I say here is unlikely to sway your opinion. But let's not labour under the misapprehension that New Vegas is anything other than an inflated and over-priced expansion riddled with the kind of sloppy and destructive bugs that would see most other games given a swift kicking and critical mauling. But I'm being too harsh, aren't I? Lazily focusing on only the negative? Over critical to the point of pedantry perhaps? Maybe so, but I'm not willing to tow the line, and if there's one thing that pisses me off without exception it's a full-price retail tag slapped shamelessly onto a distinctly half-arsed product. Now there's a quote for the box.

This game got released too early. Had it been released around the holidays, and with the collection of bugs and broken quests eliminated, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a great gift for gamers. As it is, I can only say that it's beautiful but tragically flawed.

Looking purely at the new features of Fallout: New Vegas, I want to entrench myself in the Mojave wasteland and never return. Obsidian Entertainment has bolstered the series with an array of fantastic additions, including crafting and Hardcore mode, but it’s hard to appreciate them in light of incessant bugs and unfulfilling quests. Fallout: New Vegas was a valiant effort, but it’s back to the vaults for me.

Old and ugly, not enough variety in quests or combat, might have scraped another point if it wasn’t so half-finished and glitchy. Only plus is that it’s a good interactive story, but then so is a pop-up book and that won’t set you back 40 quid. Buy this if you’re a devout fan of the series and you’ll be getting a fine addon.
