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.
Excerpt: Only in the fabulous world of Fallout could one catch a flick one minute, and become a scrub fitted science experiment the next. Per the instructions of the Mysterious Broadcast, you show up at the Mojave Drive-in at the witching hour to check out the Midnight Science Fiction Feature. All you find is an odd, damaged satellite. Further inspection suddenly has you whisked away to Big Mt., a.k.a. The Big Empty (get it?).
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.
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.
Conclusion: Fallout: New Vegas is a great game. There are so many good things, from the scenery to the voice acting to the Fallout universe in general. Unfortunately, the game suffers from a number of technical problems which can be difficult to overcome at times. If you have patience and can overlook these problems, then you will be rewarded with an engaging and beautiful game. Overall, I highly recommend this game to RPG and shooter fans alike.
