I of course bought Fallout: New Vegas the first chance I could. If you are my XBox friend, you would have seen me playing it for hours and hours on Wednesday, and I expect to do the same later today. I'm only in the very beginning stages, but so far one of my friends said it best when he described it as, "Fallout 3 with more colors." The controls are the same, the items are largely the same and the people you meet are similar to the types of people met in the last game.
Note please that I am not upset about these similarities at all. Fallout 3 was one of the best titles of the 2000s in gamings, so I'm all for a similar experience. Plus, when they talk of Lake Mead, I know what they are talking about, because I lived in Vegas for 10 years growing up as a kid.
If you liked Fallout 3 at all, you have to buy this game.
