    probubly the best DLC just for the fact you can keep going after your game is finished . also it kinda gives you the real ending of the game . you also get alot more . your level is now capped at 30 , new perks , more quests , new places to explore , new enemies . all in all the first DLC pack you should get is this one for Fallout 3 . its well worth $10

    Broken Steel is a must-have. Besides the story continuation, you can keep playing after finishing it, which is great. You face new mutants and ghouls and get new weapons. The level cap is now 30, motivating you to finish every quest you didn't do.

    Basically, get it to keep playing after finishing the story and reach lvl 30

  1. It's rare that DLC simultaneously benefits the original game and expands upon in it a way that's satisfying for those that already finished the game, but Broken Steel does precisely that. Familiar though it may be, this DLC is an absolute must.

    By extending the game beyond the main quest, Bethesda has delivered exactly what the fans have been asking for. Broken Steel offers more than enough reasons to justify the $10 price tag.
  3. If you’re a fan of Fallout 3 and also a PlayStation 3 owner there really isn’t much reason to pass on Broken Steel.
