They note the number of things you can buy for that much, including some of the greatest PC games of all time. It is true, in full because I don't believe I have ever payed so much for a dlc that gives you so little- the same goes without say for all the other Call of Duty Map packs.
If you want to know a little bit about each map though, they do add some variety and new battlegrounds if you play BlOps frequently. The new settings add some much needed variation between the stock maps, but this can only be recommended if you are a true CoD fan. Otherwise, this is a miss. Again, I recommend you spend your money on more worthwhile pursuits.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Nov 2, 2010This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As a fan of Fallout 3, I was eagerly anticipating the release of this game. First thing I discovered was that Steam was required. Many people will ***** about steam, but I find it to be very useful in organizing, opening and updating games. The game has a mediocre start- you are brought back to health by this stranger in the town of Goodsprings. Yes, it is the same graphics engine. That is good and bad. One of the good things is that the water still looks wonderful from fallout 3. Also, the sky has been greatly improved, so you can see cloud movement. However, the graphics also work against the game with the occasional glitch you see from distant objects. The factions of the game are wonderful- obviously, the folks at Bethesda and Obsidian thought through how quests for each would interfere with other factions, forcing you to take sides. The game is significantly shorter, but this is balanced out with a number of different endings, based on whether you decide to ally with Mr. House, the NCR, Caesar's Legion, or go alone. Many new types of enemies add new gameplay elements and strategies to how you fight. Many magnificent places such as the Hoover Dam and the Strip add glamor to the not so glorious Mojave wasteland. Many people overlook all the glitches, but there are many great features in the game too, that everyone should explore. And with the PC mod community, you won't have to wait long before people create mods that fill up the completely empty freeside, and add new quests to the wasteland.… Expand

As a gamer of all sorts, I actually sort of enjoyed the game despite its childish appeal. I guess I can say that I have always loved Legos since I was a kid, and even though I am into much more mature games such as the Fallout games and GTA, I still found it interesting and a new venture for the lego games. Pros: Very Creative, inspires creativity Different than other Lego games MMO where you can see other people playing with you You can design a base using legos you collect on your travels Very Child Safe and Friendly, well regulated A variety of quests among the four factions- many different gameplay aspects such as pets and imagination points CONS: Although there is a lot to do, I still feel there is a lack of content at the launch of this game. Don't worry though, as more will [hopefully] be added as time goes on. A Moderately priced monthly subscription Fee- Its fair, but I want to see a little more. May not appeal to more hardcore gamers Doesn't quite feel like a full MMO, although I haven't explored it enough to see all the PvP features. Overall, plays well for children, and creative or Lego-enthusiast adults. If you are willing to pay for the monthly subscription fees, and have the time to dedicate to an MMO, then this will be a great game for you and/or your children.… Expand
