    There isn't anything mind blowing about Honest Hearts, but it's a much more solid effort than Dead Money, and a step in the right direction for New Vegas' DLC.

    Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts is a conventional but enjoyable addition to the series.

    The majority of the DLC is utterly devoid of surprises, treats or interesting characters and places, and you'll soon start getting bored.

    Honest Hearts was promised as a long awaited harvest, but is rather, a shrub grown from the soils of poor choices.

While I liked the story and location, I didn't feel like it was terribly strong. The Burned Man wasn't all he was cracked up to be. This DLC lacked the depth that some of the content available for Fallout 3. Most of the missions involved run-and-grab type quests. In comparison to Dead Money, this was easier, but more prone to glitches. Whereas Dead Money never once crashed or slowed for me, Honest Hearts was a menagerie of crashes, slow loading times, and faulty displays. I don't believe I ever stopped playing on my terms. It always ended in a system crash. Zion National Park is a beautifully rendered location for exploration, though. Fallout fans are always happy with new content. Casual players can probably avoid this until the definitive edition of New Vegas hits shelves. Full Review »

    Honest Hearts isn't bad per se, but it is very basic. While the beautiful scenery contrasts well with the other parts of the post-apocalypticHonest Hearts isn't bad per se, but it is very basic. While the beautiful scenery contrasts well with the other parts of the post-apocalyptic world the Courier visits, there is a certain lack of depth and memorable experience with this DLC. The Malpais Legate also seems rather dull after all the legends we hear about him in the base game... Full Review »

My major complaint would beWhile I wasn't blown away by anything Honest Hearts offered, it certainly was more entertaining than Dead Money. My major complaint would be that while Zion Valley is beautifully detailed, there isn't much incentive to visit any of it's numerous locations. Another reviewer alse said that the Burned Man wasn't all he was cracked up to be, which I will second. The legendary NPC didn't really do much for me. Full Review »
