Aug 18, 2011Old World Blues is an expansion that delivers what you probably expect. New weapons, new items, new perks and more levels for your character. In total about 8 hours worth of play time and a recommendation for Fallout fans, even though a better story would have been appreciated.
Jul 28, 2011One of the best written DLCs for a Fallout game ever. It plays a strong part in the post-New Vegas story that the DLC packs are building, With that said, it's also one of the worst paced, with some of the most boring fetch quests you're likely to find in any Fallout game. It feels like an excuse to deliver excellent dialogue and humor, but with very few instances of quality content to actually play through.

Aug 12, 2011Old World Blues is one of the better DLCs to come out for New Vegas. It may even be better than those released with Fallout 3. Old World BlueOld World Blues is one of the better DLCs to come out for New Vegas. It may even be better than those released with Fallout 3.

The various sites in the Big MT provide a diverse range of settings for combat and general exploration. The characters, from the "scientists" of the Think Tank to the colourful characters in the Sink, keep the DLC interesting way past the end of the main storyline. Plus, there are plenty of new consumables, apparel, weapons, etc. to be found around the Big MT.
Another small side detail is the variety of enemies. Trauma harnesses, nightstalkers, rogue robots, lobotomites, etc. help ensure that combat remains fresh.
