- Summary: Lonesome Road, available in July, brings the courier's story full circle when you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of New Vegas. In his transmission, Ulysses promises the answer as to why, but only if you take one last job –a job that leads you into the depths of the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. The road to the Divide is a long and treacherous one, and of the few to ever walk the road, none have ever returned.… Expand
Apr 21, 2013I thought this quest expansion for Fallout: New Vegas was actually pretty good. Sure, it's kind of difficult to complete, but still a pretty good add-on. I anticipated a more bizarre story, but overall, this was not that bad. I agree with some of the other reviewers when they say Dead Money was intense. Dead Money is my favorite DLC add-on for New Vegas. Why? It's the coolest and creepiest expansion!… Expand
May 27, 2013Lonesome Road gives the game difficulty it needs compared to the Mojave. If you were able to stand the train stations in Fallout 3, the environments here won't be a problem. The storyline is deeper than Old World Blues, a more personal story than Dead Money, and the area itself is put together better than Honest Hearts. The atmosphere is a weak point, but it's meant to be bleak because of the subject nature. ED-E here is probably the companion with the overall best characterization, due to Ulysses ending up as a non-companion character. Red Glare managed to beat out the Missile Launcher as a weapon, and the Shoulder-Mounted Machine Gun covers the Minigun's weak points while still keeping some of the strengths, like a decent magazine size and a relatively-decent fire rate that still puts down bullets without draining ammo like a bullet hose Minigun does.… Expand
Sep 21, 2011I've bought every DLC for New Vegas and to be honest: This DLC is by far the best. Honest Hearts and Dead Money we're... well i just didn't like them because they we're too short and too boring. Here are some pro's and con's:
- authentical post-apocalyptic military base
- high difficulty (I've played it starting at level 45 and the enemies we're pretty tough, so you won't rush through the content)
- Useful new Items (such as a portable bedroll)
- the chance to look behind the player character as he was before he got shot in the head at the beginning of New Vegas
- linear levels, not really "open world" (you can still go as you please)
- no side quests
- i GUESS it'll get boring when you play it more than one time, because there like only 2 choices you can make… Expand
Aug 20, 2013Lonesome road is a different DLC; I wouldn't call it good or bad, and I don't know what to write when reviewing it.
I do, however want to say one thing; do not buy this DLC alone. At this point if anyone gets FNV it should most probably be the ultimate version, and I still feel it's worth playing with the other three addons.… Expand
Jun 26, 2013This is a truly awful DLC and a waste of money for any fan of fallout NV. The main villain rambles on aimlessly while you wander through the wastes saying little of interest while you head straight towards him with no room for free roaming as the map is basically a long road, along the way you will fight 3 different variety of enemies including the odd deathclaw which is nothing short of lazy. Once you reach him you are treated to a boss fight which is nothing short of a massive pain in the arse unless you have high enough speech skills.
The only plausable reason i can see in buying this DLC is for the increased level cap, as everything else in this dlc suck.
Lonesome Road is a fine example of how you can cash in making no effort and adding nothing to the original game through DLC.… Expand
