Conclusion: There’s still plenty of exploring to be done, ED-E’s a lovely WALL-E-esque companion, and Ulysses is a cool villain with a wonderful voice. The ending’s superb (much better than both New Vegas and Fallout 3 ), and I never was bored or wanted to give up. It’s not the full Fallout experience, but as the ultimate final test of your skills it works very nicely. Now then… when’s Skyrim out again?
Conclusion: All in all, Fallout: New Vegas – Lonesome Road is a worthwhile investment for the Fallout fans out there. This isn’t the best piece of DLC released but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing. We feel players will appreciate the storyline extension as well as the sheer amount of things there are to do in the expansion. Considering this as a total package, we would recommend it to all Fallout fans despite its shortcomings. You won’t be disappointed.
Excerpt: The last bit of New Vegas DLC is finally here! The core premise of Lonesome Road is a final confrontation with Ulysses – the mysterious courier that passed up the job that almost got you killed. What are his motives? Does he really want you dead, or did he just try and save his own skin?
Fallout: New Vegas - Old World Blues (X360) - Review
3 August 2011
Excerpt: Fallout: New Vegas - Old World Blues has injected new life into the RPG. It’s almost as though the developers were high on the Wild Wasteland perk while crafting this. You get a strange feeling when playing Old World Blues ; most of New Vegas is quite serious, with black comedy thrown in here and there - Old World Blues is like humor on steroids.
Summary: What would you do if your spine was ripped from your body? What would happen if you had a big gun with a dog's brain? Do light switches get along with each other? These are questions you've likely never thought to ask, yet Fallout: New Vegas - Old World Blues answers them with more humor and irreverence than is contained in the entirety of the last two full Fallout games combined.
Pros: Hysterical writing and voice acting, Quests, weapons, and other facets have a humorous, surreal edge, Lots of interesting secrets to discover, New and intriguing enemies to fight
Conclusion: Overall, Old World Blues is an excellent addition to Fallout: New Vegas . Though there are a few faults, the DLC pack as a whole is strong and up to the standards you have come to expect from the Fallout team. There is a really interesting story with lots of funny characters, lots of powerful weapons and an interesting environment to explore and claim as your own. Any Fallout fan will appreciate this DLC, and should download it as soon as they can.
Conclusion: Even though this DLC pack as slightly shorter than Dead Money, it definitely felt more satisfying to complete. It also feels more polished than Dead Money and I definitely ran into less bugs during gameplay. I also loved that I could return to Zion after completing the DLC. With the level cap bump and interesting narrative, I’d say Honest Hearts is well worth the $10 entry fee for diehard Fallout New Vegas players.
Summary: In the Fallout universe, nuclear war has ravaged the country, but religious faith abides. In Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts, men of God struggle to find peace in a land where strife is inescapable--a powerful theme for a downloadable add-on. The story in Honest Hearts doesn't take advantage of this fertile premise, but that premise still enriches this formulaic yet enjoyable adventure into Utah's Zion National Park.
Pros: A big new area to explore, A bunch of new missions to perform, New level cap, new perks, Interesting choices energize questing
Cons: Shrugworthy story and characters, The usual Fallout glitches, Formulaic adventure with no signature moments
Excerpt: The Fallout series has taken you all over the United States – and this time, Obsidian is keen to send you to Utah to help Happy Trails Caravan on an expedition to Zion National Park. But it isn’t just any old job: Joshua Graham, the famous Burned Man from New Vegas’ main storyline, is the star of the show.
