    Wasteland Workshop offers just a small package of content. Most props are a great addition to your settlement, but that's everything positive about the DLC. Taming creatures takes no effort, and the AI is broken.

    Wasteland Workshop adds some neat new cosmetic window dressing to Fallout’s settlement-building systems, but the piecemeal additions didn't include enough new gameplay applications to hold my interest. The traps and creature-capture mechanics are briefly enjoyable but not fully fleshed out, which quickly makes them deteriorate into disappointments.

    In terms of Fallout 4 DLC, we're still in search of a killer app that'll actually drag you back to the Wasteland.

    It’s a slight extra and nothing more, and certainly not worth picking up on its own.

  1. While this suite of options is probably something those playing on console will find interesting, I can’t see it appealing to all too many PC players – simply because there are already a multitude of Fallout 4 mods out there that do a similar, if not better, job for free.

Wasteland Workshop is a niche DLC aimed specifically towards people like me who like building settlements. Yea sure, you can get mods to have more stuff, but these items aren't necessarily just more stuff. These are more stuff, professionally made. which add more functionality, e.g. cages to capture creatures and create battle arenas, more neat electronics, lighting etc., to the settlements. Plus, people like me want variety. I've got this DLC on top of the other settlement mods from Nexus and Bethesda.net.

    I honestly believe people are complaining because they wanted some other DLC which works more for them rather than for some of us. But really, it's a filler DLC which not everyone has to have, but if you like settlement building, it's a neat DLC worth checking out.

    P.S. Consider while reading these reviews, the poor reviews usually are complaining about shelling out a bit of money for a DLC Bethesda ain't necessarily shoving down everyone's throats. They're complaining more about the method of delivery of the content, rather than the content itself, which they themselves mix up. If these were added free through patches, people would probably just start wanking to a picture of Todd or Bethesda. And while I agree to a point on these concerns, it is again optional and tailored to a specific demographic which I fall into, and I'm content with my purchase.

    This DLC is not for everyone, which is why it has such a low score. This should not be surprising. If one is not into settlement building inThis DLC is not for everyone, which is why it has such a low score. This should not be surprising. If one is not into settlement building in the game, then one should not be expected to find value in this DLC. This is the Hearthfires, or Gunrunners Arsenal, of the game. If one wants this kind of content, then it's great, but if one doesn't, it's a big meh.

    But if you do like settlement building, it's well worth the low low price. It's even included in the Season Pass. For the price of a burrito you get dozens of new lighting options, concrete buildings, buses, garden plots, pets, and much much more. PLUS death matches with honest-to-goodness deathclaws!

The arena is fun, the new traps can be great, and the new decorations/signs are great to decorate with. Expand

    As a season pass holder for "Fallout 4" I was massively disappointed with this excuse of a "DLC"
    It adds very little to the game and the only good thing to come out of it was concrete building.
    The arena part of the "DLC" was broken, just broken and over complicated!
    This is just awful for PC owners, Mods add more than this!

    Although it certainly is rather cheap for a DLC - the content is hardly worth anything. In fact ... many devs might be ashamed to ask for money for what it offers. In fact - there are a lot of games out there that added A LOT more content in a free patch/update.

    And that is what Bethesda should be for offering this DLC : be ashamed

    there is kind of a conspiracy theory that says that the reason Bethesda has not yet released the G.E.C.K. is so modders cannot offer this type of content for free (and possibly better).

    Now - the story might change for console players. Those have not been blessed by the hundreds of mods that double or tripple Fallout 4 game content. For a console player - this DLC might actually be a 5 or 6 instead of barely making a 1.

It doesn't even **** work! The whole point of the damned thing is supposed to be for you to build arenas for settlers or hostile npc's to fight in or spectate and it doesn't work. You can do everything EXCEPT what this dlc was meant to do and that is host a combat arena and have people watch fights. Every time you open cages everyone turns hostile even when the pacifying machine is turned on (Which is SUPPOSED to keep hostile npc's from being a threat to your settlers). Bethesda is a joke. These imbeciles can't even properly code a simple DLC anymore! Expand

    This is something that can be modded. Bethesda wasn't even trying with this, just trying to fork some cash from the players.
    Sure i got this when i paid for the season pass, but i expected better content, not this useless Minecraft tier garbage
