    Worst DLC ever.
    Boring and repetitive quests, stupid robots everywhere, never ending nonsensical crap talk all the time about stuff i don't give a damn about.
    Also i want to add that the settings are quite terrible in this occasion. The soporific and idiotic sense of humor ruins everything.

    Not sure what were they thinking, but this is seriously boring as hell. I'm starting to give up
    hope about ever seeing an epic DLC as it was Point Lookout, The Pitt and Broken Steel on FO3.

    My verdict: Don't even bother with this, it's absolute garbage content, not even worth a goddamn cent. Go buy some bubble gums or Antidepressant. This reminds me of FFXIII, it was so damn boring that i couldn't beat it no matter how hard i tried.

    My Rating: 1/10
    Legendary failure DLC of the year.

    not worth the money. the npcs are outrageously annoying, the story is built for the mind of a 5th grader and nothing you get in this dlc will supplement your playing the actual game. it is a complete ripoff of portals characters and comedy style except with unbearably sub-par voice acting. some lines are literally stolen straight from portal and portal 2! if you care about the story and environments you'd do better with the lonesome road dlc, a much more useful one imho Expand

    Yes the characters are interesting and yes the dialogue is at times humorous, but aside from that, this DLC is just as disappointing as Dead Money and Honest Hearts. I was genuinely excited about playing this one what with the critics giving so much praise, but really it's just boring and repetitive side quests that I completed just for the sake of finishing the DLC. The new items are underwhelming and when you cut out the side quests (which are pretty much all the same thing), what you're left with is a main story that takes you less than 2 hours to complete. I admit the DLC is quite lengthy if you intend to finish everything (more than 8 hours), but a lot of the content is just plain mediocre and I much prefer to have something of higher quality that would only last half the time this DLC did.

    The extra content, funny characters and entertaining story introduced through Old World Blues, makes the great Fallout: New Vegas even better. There is much to explore, and who wouldn't want to meet up with one's own brain for a bit of a chat?

    Packs goofy characters, great loot, and a few bugs into an interesting new zone for the Fallout series. [Oct 2011, p.86]

    A risky Fallout experiment – and a very successful one. [Sept 2011, p.100]
