Excerpt: The original Fallout game is definitely in the top 50 of all great video games which was developed by Interplay as an isometric adventure game set in post apocalyptic America which was ravaged by nuclear war. The best way to describe the original engine of Fallout was that it was similar to Diablo, however science fiction based.
Excerpt: At E3 2010 Bethesda Softworks featured a hands-on demonstration of their anticipated Fallout sequel, Fallout: New Vegas, which is currently in development for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. First impressions here.
Conclusion: Make sure you use a guide for this one -- not because it's tough, but because the game-breaking bugs can seem to come out of nowhere. It's doubtful Bethesda will patch things if they haven't yet. So save early and often... or else.
Conclusion: Arguably the best of the DLC packs released, Point Lookout is different enough to seem like a proper expansion, but not so far removed as to break down the overall tone of the game. It's funny, challenging and different. Exactly what DLC should be.
Conclusion: If you haven't yet soured on the combat Fallout 3 has to offer, you'll find a bunch more here. No looting, no hoarding stim packs, nothing but pure, liberty-bringing action. And the action, is just fine. Y'know, if action is your thing.
Conclusion: Performance problems and a squandered set of new characters bog down what could have been a really interesting peek beyond the alternate reality take on post-nuke Earth (and beyond). Unless you're dying for a new setting, it's probably best to skip this.
Conclusion: It's rare that DLC simultaneously benefits the original game and expands upon in it a way that's satisfying for those that already finished the game, but Broken Steel does precisely that. Familiar though it may be, this DLC is an absolute must.
Excerpt: The past 10 days have been very busy for me. I've broken into countless military bases, taken vast quantities of drugs, and have shot several hundred people in the head. I've stolen the Declaration of Independence. I've moonlighted as a contract killer. I've helped to run a warped presidential election. I've even gotten really sick after drinking from a toilet bowl. But enough about my holiday trip to Skegness - let's talk about one of the biggest releases of 2008.
Excerpt: Fallout 3 was my game of the year back in 2008, so the obviously titled rerelease rings true for this reviewer. Packaging all five pieces of downloadable content into one product gives players a reason to take the double dip if they missed out on those episodes during their initial run. While these pieces of DLC range in quality, no one can deny that they add a great deal to an already meaty package.
