Excerpt: The games industry is all about genres. It’s not unique in this fact but we already are awash with acronyms: First Person Shooter (FPS), Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) and Hidden Object Game (HOG) to name but a few. The games that stand out are the ones that push the envelope, take their genre and try and improve on it. With HOGs that envelope is rarely pushed too far.
Summary: I’m having a great time playing through these Fallout 3 expansions. It’s too bad my damn job keeps interfering with all of my gaming! On top of that, each new DLC that I play through just continues to get me more and more excited for New Vegas this fall! So many games, so little time! Nonetheless, Fallout 3’s Broken Steel expansion offers you a TON of additional content that extends the life of the primary story, as well as increasing the level cap of the game to 30.
Excerpt: …if Fallout 3 had one more big bang left after the ending, with some general game improvements tacked on for good measure. Broken Steel marks the third DLC for Bethesda’s monster RPG, bringing a similar amount of additional content to the party for all you Fallout junkies who still can’t get enough of the Capitol Wasteland.
Excerpt: The path to recovery begins with the simplest but hardest action a person can take: admitting they’ve done something wrong. So some applause is in order for Bethesda, who finally saw fit to take another crack at Fallout 3 ‘s ending after the near unanimous criticism it earned. The ending was one of the few truly uncontested blights on an otherwise excellent long-awaited sequel, and that Broken Steel addresses this weakness goes without saying; the game is unquestionably...
Summary: Fallout 3 puts you in the role of a Vault-dweller, venturing from your secluded, underground survival Vault into a post-apocalyptic world of mutants, radiation, gangs and violence. The Broken Steel DLC lets you continue the adventure past the main quest by joining the ranks of the Brotherhood of Steel and ridding the Capital Wasteland of the Enclave once and for all.
Excerpt: Broken Steel finishes off the trilogy of downloadable content originally planned for Bethesda's Fallout 3, following up on previous releases Operation Anchorage and The Pitt. Like those releases, Broken Steel has a $10 (800 Microsoft points) price point, and is exclusive to Xbox 360 and Games for Windows Live (sorry Playstation 3 owners). The similarities end there, however.
Excerpt: With the release of the third DLC pack for Fallout 3 , some gamers are finally going to see what Bethesda has been doing since the release of the game over six months ago. The first two packs whisked you away to entirely new areas and didn't integrate terribly well with the usual Capital Wasteland experience.
Excerpt: Was wäre, wenn die Story von „ Fallout 3 “ noch weitergesponnen werden würde? Bei „Broken Steel“ ist dies der Fall. Ob gelungen oder nicht, erfahren Sie in unserem Review. Trinkwasser ist die wichtigste Ressource auf dem Planeten Erde. Wenn Sie versuchen, eine Woche ohne Nahrung auszukommen, ist das mit Sicherheit nicht sehr angenehm, drei Tage ohne Wasser allerdings beinahe unmöglich.
Pros: Level-Begrenzung erst bei Level 30, Hauptstory wird fortgeführt
Excerpt: Troisième extension téléchargeable pour Fallout 3, Broken Steel aura connu un lancement aussi douloureux que The Pitt, sur PC cette fois. Elle n'en restait pas moins la plus attendue ; pas seulement pour son nouveau contenu, mais parce qu'elle permet de poursuivre l'aventure après le générique de fin et de s'affranchir de la limite de niveau du jeu d'origine.
