Fallout 3, Broken steel and Operation Anchorage(Fallout 3 DLC) review

So I got fallout 3 Game of the year edition, Beat it, did broken steel and Operation Anchorage. I’m taking a in game break from quest for a bit so I won’t have the Point look out and Mother ship Zeta reviews up until this weekend or early next week. So on with the reviews!


Fallout 3. The long awaited squeal to Fallout and Fallout 2. With the fallout right bought out by Bethesda, Fallout 3 would get a big time make over.

The year is 2277, 200 years after the bombs fell in the Fallout universe. You play as Jame’s kid, who was ‘born’ in the vault. As your father leaves one day you go out to look for him in the waste. The waste are not friendly to many.  As you progress through out the game you learn many things about the main story line and the 100’s of others. The water is poisoned with radiation. So drinking it a lot could get you killed. You can also chose to listen to GNR or the enclave radio stations. The enclave is Propaganda from the remains of the U.S. Government while GNR is a pro B.O.S. station that talks about your actions and plays 1950’s music. Which is super fun to listen to while blowing a super mutants head off. That was a long summery so onto the Story review!


This story was great. There’s so much to do and how you do it, You can play fallout 3 for so long it will take you a few months with all the DLC to do a second play through. As for the main story line its self, I would say around 6 to 7 hours if you do it all at once. This story has everything. It has Good guys, bad guys, and people who are just there. I give the story a 10 out of 10.

Game play

The Game play is super. There’s a Level system and skills and perks system. Lets say you want to hack a terminal. Oh no! Your level science level isn’t high enough. But you only need 3 more XP till the next level. Well, Go kill a ghoul or something then Level up, Upgrade the skill, Chose a perk that’s helps the skill, and Wallah! You can hack it! They also have V.A.T.S.(Vault tech. Assisted. Targeting. System) Were you pause real time combat, target a body part, then shot it in a epic short movie. V.A.T.S. really do help. So remember, Blast them away with V.A.T.S.!


Overall this game is great, The story is good and game play is nothing short of Epicness.

I give this a 10/10

Broken steel

Broken steel takes two weeks after the events of Fallout 3. Join the Brother hood of steel as they clean up the Enclave remains and kill em all with a giant robot! Increase your level to 30 with new perks to!


The story is a lot shorter then Fallout 3. Like a hour or so if you don’t die or get lost. Although it’s short Broken steel gets you into the B.O.S for sure if getting into Lyons pride in the main game wasn’t enough. So you can say your a B.O.S. member for sure! Other then that, I can’t say much without ruining it for you.

Operation: Anchorage


Help the Brother hood of steel outcast get some armor by competing a simulation in which you fight in the most important event in the fallout universe next to the great war.


The story follows a squad leader of a strike team who is given some of the hardest tasks in the operation. And I can’t say more other then it’s in Alaska since I don’t want to ruin it.

Game play

Over all game play is the same but, since you can’t search dead bodys or pick up many weapons your forced to conserve ammo and try more then ever not to get shot. You also only chose from a few packs of gear so pick carefully.

Overall for both addons.

Over all I give Broken steel a 9 out of 10 and Operation: Anchorage a 8 out of 10.

There both good so pick them up if you don’t have them.

Well that’s all for know -From the basement of Alex_N
