    Lengthy but not necessarily good add on. It starts out promising but turns into a repetitive roam around the wasteland. Some interesting missions keep the monotony from setting in but really only for people who want to level their character up.

    The worst DLC for Fallout NV. Short but still managed to be monotonous. It suffices for someone who just wants more NV, but it fails to impress. It also takes you completely out of the game, whereas the first 2 kind of added to the game a bit. I was really hoping for better with this one.

    Fallout: New Vegas Old World Blues, where do i start with this gem of a dlc? This dlc pits you in the mysterious crater of Big Mt. A few problems i had was just finding all the items and then more show up which started to get really repetitive and annoying. With that the enemies are also something you find in the regular wasteland which felt like Bethesda (a company i love for Fallout andFallout: New Vegas Old World Blues, where do i start with this gem of a dlc? This dlc pits you in the mysterious crater of Big Mt. A few problems i had was just finding all the items and then more show up which started to get really repetitive and annoying. With that the enemies are also something you find in the regular wasteland which felt like Bethesda (a company i love for Fallout and Elder Scroll games) did no effort of giving you a new enemy to fight but just giving us all just the same enemies. The story was pretty good but had no really big climatic conclusion of something changed. Aside the not much of a conclusion and the same enemies, The Loot is amazing, the dlc is funny and just really fun to play. it should be recommended to have a high science skill and also high energy weapons (which is what is usually found in this dlc). Also its recommended to find the personality files of your items in your room above the think tank so you can be healed and also buy better items (which will be needed because i died alot). so with the dlc's fun gameplay, funny story, good loot, same enemies, and non climatic ending, this dlc earned its place as a 7/10 to me, still a great dlc but could have been better.

    Although it's larger and more fully developed than Honest Hearts, I'm afraid that Fallout: New Vegas-Old World Blues is another case of a great idea not living up to its potential.

    There's several enjoyable hours of fighting and fetch-quests here. [Nov 2011, p.91]
