    As much as I would like to give a proper review on this, I can't. After finishing the game, you aren't allowed to use the DLC after you have paid for it. So you pay $10 -$30 for more material and are locked out of it. If you like spending many countless hours enjoying a game and then to have the game come to an end and put a cherry on top by stealing your money then by all means download this DLC from Bethesda. Now if you are smart you had waited til the $60 game dropped to $10 (in a matter of mere months) and bought it later. Some of us are retarded and gave the $60 in the beginning because we thought after Fallout 3, they would have learned their lesson on taking advantage of their customers and gave better customer service by fixing their mistakes they hastily pushed out to the public . One needs not to go far to reveal the mess that both these two last games has made. Well guess what? I don't think I'm going for a third round of this when the next game comes out. So I guess in conclusion, this company can kiss my grits. I give it a one rating as I'm sure it will be fun to play but being as how I paid for it and can't use it that's as far as I can go. Don't be a sucker. Wait for them to fix the whole game, if that's possible, then get the DLC for free on the final version that will come out inevitably. Collapse

    A highly recommended piece of DLC. [Issue#209, p.99]

    Its mad humour brings the laughs, while odd weapons and perks make the gameplay feel fresh again. [Oct 2011, p.110]

    Old 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.
