    The final Fallout New Vegas DLC offers up some fun things for the devoted fans of the series, but it's nowhere near as fun or engaging as Old World Blues. The universally accepted major flaw of Lonesome Road is that the story presented in Lonesome Road is very linear. The previous DLCs have their own problems, but lack of an engrossing story wasn't one of them.

The universally accepted major flaw of Lonesome Road is that the story presented in Lonesome Road is very linear. The previous DLCs have their own problems, but lack of an engrossing story wasn't one of them. Lonesome Road doesn't seem as deep or relevant as the previous three efforts. The final conflict between the Courier and Ulysses has been built up and teased at nearly every turn with Fallout New Vegas. To say that confrontation is less than satisfying is an understatement. Still, anyone looking for more Fallout won't be terribly disappointed. Expand

    Lonesome Road was made for us Fallout fans. I'm talking the ones that started to to wonder who was leaving behind the American flag spray paint, the ones who loved Fallout 1, 2, and all the New Vegas DLC. This is not necessarily for the fans who only really understand Fallout 3.

Don't be discouraged how it won't expand the story past the end of Fallout New Vegas, trust me, this DLC will make the ending even better. Lonesome Road is a must have for people who enjoyed Fallout New Vegas, and want more story to add to their already massive game. Expand

    Overall Lonesome road is an above average add-on in my book. Fun new place to explore, a choice that effects the Mojave, plenty of gear to keep me entertained, and all new perks to increase my character's abilities. The only thing I don't like is the main (and only) series of quests is too linear and not nearly as interesting as the other DLCs, but if your as big of a Fallout fan as I amOverall Lonesome road is an above average add-on in my book.

  1. Remember how you got shot in the head at the beginning of New Vegas? Well, that bullet was actually meant for the courier Ulysses. Sounds good, but it actually isn't. [Nov 2011, p.97]

    Lonesome Road delivers on every level but creates more questions than it answers. For the fan, Lonesome Road offers a nice story line that will last for up to eight hours. It's just too linear, making it less enjoyable then some of the other downloadable content that's available for New Vegas.

    Each one has its flaws (with linearity being Lonesome Road's biggest drawback), but overall they're a fantastic, collective achievement by Obsidian and should make the (surely) inevitable New Vegas 'Collectors Edition' a must-buy for anyone who hasn't yet sampled these expansions.
