Bethesda has just released their first DLC on PS3 for Fallout 3, Broken Steel. Broken Steel takes you on a quest to end the enclave once and for all but does it make up for the wait?
So Finally, after all the wait the first bit of Fallout 3 DLC finally hit the PSN after it was delayed in September. Broken Steel is the first DLC released for PS3 unlike the Xbox 360 which was the console’s third DLC. Broken Steel takes place 2 weeks after the final fight for the purifier. Once you wake up you don’t realize what has happen in the past couple day other than getting the purifier started once Elder Lyons tells you that there are remnants of the Enclave left, it then becomes your job to stop them and take them out once and for all.
This DLC was probably the best to start out on the PS3, as the level cap was finally raised to 30 and you return back to the Wasteland after an abrupt ending. While playing the DLC, I enjoyed that I was able to roam free once again but, what I really enjoyed was using the new weapons that weren’t available before. Also, whats great is that there are new enemies to face and some are difficult than before and I had a hard time taking them out be perfectly honest. Broken Steel is great to get ahead before the other piece’s of content come out and I say it’s well worth you $9.99 .
Only issues I had were some framerate issues when it got to crowded on screen and the occasional freeze issue, especially when I earned the earned the gold trophy. Other than these issues, it’s a great add-on for you to max out your stats as much and earn new perks. Can’t wait for the next batch of DLC Bethesda!
Fallout 3 is still the same as they left it
Still the same Wasteland we missed with extra places to visit
Same score, but new gun sounds make it great.
If you haven’t guessed it, it’s still the same but new choices make you decide how you want this DLC to play out.
Replay Value: 9.0
Once your done you can still roam around the Wasteland doing extra missions and our course earning trophies is never a bad thing.
Final Score: 8.8
