    Good fun, if a little short for the money. [June 2009, p.68]

    Given the fun factor, ten dollars seems reasonable value and if you're a big fan of Fallour 3 then it's definitely worth a look.
  3. The flawed feel of Fallout 3: The Pitt extends beyond the battered, war-weary facade of its buildings, and the rushed, unfinished feel of this particular adventure makes it a painfully disappointing experience.
  4. Unlike Operation: Anchorage, brief, dullish adventures in Pittsburgh are actually worth $10. It seems Bethesda has finally found the right formula for Fallout 3 expansions, although it’s far from being perfect.

It's obvious that the concept tried to Much better than Operation: Anchorage for sure, but there isn't that much fighting to do. It's obvious that the concept tried to differentiate itself from the rest of FO3, but it's still pretty much the same desolate, gutter-like and lawless environment the player will be in. The new items are okay, but they are quite redundant once you're done with The Pitt. Full Review »

The Pitt has by far the greatest story of all the DLC's, it is emotional, interesting, unique, and has some really difficult moral choices at the end. The world you are in is a perfect example of what a post-apocalyptic environment would be like, it is creepy, horrifying, and even rather sad. The only negatives I can think of is weak awards and not enough quests. Full Review »

    Not much fun, slow, and more of the same. It's not a lot different than the rest of the game, more to shoot, less freedom. I bought the gameNot much fun, slow, and more of the same. It's not a lot different than the rest of the game, more to shoot, less freedom. I bought the game of the year addition for $10 on steam, but you aren't missing anything with the DLC.
