    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Mothership Zeta is the last and best expansion for Fallout 3. The idea of ​​a kidnapping by the alien UFO crashed, already present in the original game is simply good. Not very original, but always fascinating. The best thing about Mothership Zeta, in the plot, is the encounter of the Lone Wanderer with the other victims of alien abductions: Paulson, cowboy that comes from the Old West; Tercorien, soldier of the 108th Infantry Battalion during Operation Anchorage; Sally, a girl lived shortly after the Great War; Somah, a slaver woman of Paradise Falls; and...Toshiro Kago, a japanese samurai who comes from the 17th century. Each with its own story, each with its own time, with their own problems, each with their own personality, must work together to survive. People so distant in time and space, whose fate brought them together. The theme about alien's centuried observation of Earth and cryogenic detention and abduction is very good. And the way the story ends with the final battle between spaceships, in true Star Trek style, is simply gorgeous. The whole adventure has a beautiful sci-fi flavor.

    Mothership Zeta's gameplay and content is great: the alien ship is very big and labyrinthine to explore, the alien weapons are extraordinary, new enemies like the alien drones and, above all, the "abominations" (results of genetic mix between aliens and humans) are very nice. Longevity is excellent; in fact Mothership Zeta lasted at least 10+ hours to complete it decently.

    I heard a lot of criticism about Mothership Zeta. I don't understand: it is great, complete and fun. Then if you don't like pure sci-fi, well, that's your mistake.

    of all the DLC packs this is my second least favorite . mainly because all you get to do is run around a alien ship and shoot aliens with outof all the DLC packs this is my second least favorite . mainly because all you get to do is run around a alien ship and shoot aliens with out much of any story outside of escape the ship alive . the best part about the game is the new alien guns you get which are pretty wicked . unlike like the other dlc packs which give you more places to explore and more quests this just doesnt offer enough for $10. it should have been no more then $5 .
