Fallout 3: Broken Steel Review

Games Abyss
7 February 2011
  • Conclusion: In my opinion, Broken Steel is definitely worth the purchase. At $9.99 on the PSN, a lot of PS3 owners wondered if it was worth the price tag after being delayed for almost a year. If your copy of Fallout 3 is collecting dust on the shelf, this gives you a reason to pick it up and get excited about playing it again.
  • Pros: If you're a Fallout 3 fan, and have been waiting for this all year long, you won't be disappointed. Broken Steel brings a lot of awesome new quests and locations to explore, keeping you entertained for hours.
  • Cons: Waiting a year for the first DLC drop is definitely disappointing and some gamers might argue against the $9.99 fee.

Daddy's Little Fallout

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Bethesda Softworks, the developer of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion , has set out to continue what Interplay's Black Isle Studios had to drop: the Fallout series. Their first effort in this new venture is Fallout 3 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Fallout games are typically set in a 1950s-style, post-apocalyptic future world, and Fallout 3 follows that tradition by placing gamers into the Capital Wasteland, formerly Washington DC.

What a Wonderful World

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Developer Black Isle Studios created three games in the 90s that still grace RPG "best of" lists today: Fallout , Fallout 2 , and Planescape: Torment . After the significant monetary investment in Stonekeep 2 was lost in its cancellation, the studio released the good-not-great Icewind Dale series before the entire team was axed by Interplay.

  • Excerpt: Fallout 2 is regarded by many as one of the greatest RPGs and overall games ever made. Released in the late 90s, the game received a few follow-ups but no true sequel until almost a decade later. Bethesda, the makers of the much acclaimed The Elder Scrolls series of games (Morrowind, Oblivion etc) has brought back the Fallout franchise with their attempt at a true sequel: Fallout 3.

Game Debate
19 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Name the two biggest problems with Fallout 3. Go on. I bet you said the level cap and the abrupt ending didn't you? So did I, and guess what? Yup, Broken Steel increases the level cap to 30 and – rejoice! - changes the ending to one of open-ended joy. There you go. That's all you need to know - 9/10.
  • Pros: Higher level cap, Open ended, More Fallout 3
  • Cons: Dull(ish) new monsters

Fally! Outy!

Game Debate
8 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Gamers have had a love affair with nuclear war ever since Matthew Broderick gave new meaning to the phrase "WOPR with cheese" back in the eighties. However, surprisingly few games have really dealt with the aftermath of nuclear war - surprising really, considering the scope of imagination it allows designers. The Fallout series has always* managed to slap huge dollops of originality all over the lithe, inviting setting, creating something filthy, yet oh so inviting.

Game Over Online
5 January 2009
  • Excerpt: If you’ve played Oblivion, you won’t be far wrong if you expect Fallout 3 to be a post-apocalyptic version of that game. The parallels are almost undeniable. From the very beginning, where Oblivion had you starting in a cramped dungeon, Fallout 3 has you beginning in a not-so-spacious fallout shelter known as The Vault.
