Fallout 3: Operation Anchorage
13 October 2009
Excerpt: [Join Christopher Matulich and Chris Carter, as they both review Fallout 3's Operation: Anchorage pack for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Chris M's review was written months ago when the DLC dropped on the 360, and Chris Carter's is brand new. Intro by Christopher Matulich.]

Conclusion: Adds a totally new spin to the Fallout 3 formula. Adds new achievements. May attract more fans of action shooters. The level design is gorgeous. Great deal for the price. You get some nice "items" for completing the content.
