Incredibly gorgeous for its age, full of atmosphere, and remarkably non-linear. The extent to which you could change the outcome of the game based on your choices and actions was astounding. Easily one of the most unique and memorable games I've ever played.… Expand

Ten, on the other hand, is a rating reserved for the best of the best and Portal 2 is easily among them. Between the single player and co-op modes, it took me almost 12 hours to complete and I've already started a second playthrough. I feel like I got my money's worth ten times over.… Expand

It has more quests and content than any of the other expansions (with the possible exception of Point Lookout, which I found so drab and boring that I didn't finish any of the side quests). The added level cap is more than enough of a reason to get this DLC over any of the others, but on top of that it actually felt like a continuation of Fallout 3 rather than a crappy side mission. Operation Anchorage and Mothership Zeta were just quick combat missions that felt tacked on. Broken Steel actually added new content to the Capitol Wasteland and changed the world that I had come to know and enjoy. To me, the missions were the most exciting of any of the DLCs, and the Tesla Cannon is easily the greatest weapon in the game and reason enough to complete it.
To all the people who are saying that Bethesda cut content from the main game and threw it in Broken Steel just so they could charge us more money for it just plain need to get over it. Fallout 3 was a HUGE game, and I doubt that any more than 1% of the people who played it ever completed all the quests. There was a ton of content that was cut from Half-Life 2 and used in the HL2: Episodes that was merely cut DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS. The situation is likely the same here. It doesn't mean it was an intentional ploy by Bethesda to get more money out of us.
Broken Steel was awesome. It wasn't perfect, but it wasn't the money grab people keep making it out to be. Buy it.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.4Nov 10, 2010At first, Operation Anchorage feels a little bit more like one of the older Call of Duty titles than it does Fallout 3. You are given theAt first, Operation Anchorage feels a little bit more like one of the older Call of Duty titles than it does Fallout 3. You are given the false impression of something new and exciting; Unfortunately, it only lasts for about 20 minutes or so before you realize you're just running on a treadmill of combat and pointless dialogue. Once you wake up to the fact that that the full heath and ammo checkpoints make for an easy and hollow combat experience, you lose interest real fast, and it becomes a boring grind to simply get it over with. The ONLY reason to complete OA is for the indestructible power armour at the very end (or possibly the Chinese stealth armour if you care about stealth gameplay). If it's experience points you're after, your time could be much better spent elsewhere. The combat might be a welcomed relief if it weren't so repetitive. The fact that you can't take anything you find in the simulator back into the regular game, and the complete lack of karma and dialogue choices completely removes the RPG side of the game (a part that makes FO3 so awesome). In short, there's really no reason to play this expansion except to say that you did it and retrieve the rewards at the end and move on. Definitely a disappointing experience.… Expand
