    Easy.

    Having never played any of the earlier fallout games i wasn't too sure what to expect but it was a fun and very fair game, one I found a sash house and got into the flow of the game.

    The challenges which may prove time consuming,The Courier Who Broke the Bank, 10,000 damage/survival, bottletops, can be made considerably easier if you check the trophy guides.

    Make's me wanna check out FO3, but my games backlog is getting long and gaming season is fast approaching.

    Hardcore mode was easier than it sounds. The only trouble I had was the casino betting trophy. That was major grinding for me. I thought it was a lot easier than Fallout to plat.

    Easy. Being Doom's second platinum, the first since he joined this site about more than a year ago, it wasn't hard at all. Hardcore mode made things interesting with party members being able to die and all but other than a few moments, it wasn't challenging at all.

    well i got the plat on this in 5 days ,and i still believe it warrants a 3.5 in between moderate to hard, being a time consuming game or not of course reflects the time you put in for it, but with all the multiple endings required and if you didnt make that ONE SAVE at the right spot.

    Well , do over ,and hardcore was just some practice and patience,for someone new to the series it may have made it a little more difficult,but to a Fallout vet,more an inconvenience.

    stock up on food, go to the lake, drown yourself but come back up just before you die, replenish health with food, repeat.


    that is if you missed the opportunity during gameplay to only use food for health instead of stimpacks

    Moderate: Not a hard game, even hardcore mode was a piece of cake but the reason for moderate is because of the trophy for getting banned from The Strip casinos which was very tedious and when doing one of my playthroughs for Cesar when I was on the Arizona Killer mission, it ended up failing and I never saved before the mission so I had to finish it and start again until I got to that mission.

    2. Easy

    As with Fallout 3 this game has the plus side of having no actual difficulty related trophies other than "Hardcore Mode" which isn't hard at all if you make a separate file and just sail through the main quests. Once again an amazing game with the ever-present freezing issues that plagued FO:3, and once again I still recommend this game to everyone. If you haven't already purchased the game look for the edition that includes all the DLC on the disc for more fun trophy hunting. I also found the shear number of weapons in this game to be amazing, especially with all the DLC...

    Anyways, I'm rambling. I voted easy because well, the game IS easy, just time consuming. Happy trophy hunting!

    3 - Moderate Doesn't feel right to call this one easy. Although nothing about it was that tough, just time consuming and kinda tricky at times. Hardcore mode kinda ruined the game for me for a bit but I just blazed thru the main story to get that nonsense out of the way. The 10,000 trophy that gave me the most trouble was the food one. It was just sooo slow going at first. Also din't care for the different faction endings. They were all just a bunch of the same thing over and over. Still a great game but I prefer Fallout 3 to this one.

    Moderate. I've found most of these are time-consuming or take a little skill if it's not your normal style. I had a HUGE difficulty with 30 Caravan wins as I just could never understand the rules of the game. Hardcore can be gotten around if you set it to very easy since difficulty is not a factor in earning the trophies.

    Moderate. More than anything this game just has a few very time consuming trophies, and you’ve got to watch out for a few glitches

    Moderate- Nothing is really hard, it's just time consuming.

    3. ModerateAs mentioned above its not a difficult game to Plat it just takes a lot of time to grind out certain trophies. Once you achieve the hardcore trophy and switch it off the rest is fairly simple

    I voted easy. Was a fun game, other than the standard Fallout freezes. The DLC's were a blast as well.

    2 - Easy.

    My first playthru was on Hardcore, did all the 10k trophies, and all other misc trophies as well. The last 3 half playthrus (I made 3 saves after getting to the strip) went be relatively quickly.

    moderate, solely because of the glitches, if it is ever fixed I would say easy

    I would say easy, but i'm gonna rate moderate because of time consuming. It took me more than 100 hours to get the 100%.

    My thoughts exactly. Hardcore mode is annoying which is why I'm glad I saved it for my second playthrough, also there are a few miscellaneous trophies that are annoying as well. Technically I would vote this a 2.5 but since I can't I'll go with a 3 - Moderate.

    3 Moderate Let me start out by saying Fallout 3 and New Vegas are amazing games that are at the top of my list of action rpgs and videogames in general.

    I rated Fallout New Vegas moderate because it will take you a long time to complete. If you are like me and enjoy sniping deathclaws to pass the time, then this game will probably breeze by. I completed all the add ons before finishing the game on hardcore and I was really surprised at how easy hardcore was. I knew exactly where to go and how to maximize my chances for survival (raise your speech asap) and I completed hardcore in one sitting. I can’t wait for Fallout 4……

    Moderate- I'll say the same thing I said about Fallout 3, Very time consuming but a great game. Trophies were easy to miss requiring several play throughs. Hardcore mode did offer a nice challenge and a different perspective to the game.
