Wandering the wasteland you venture off to explore a strange radio signal coming from a crashed alien spacecraft, but once you see the wreckage your beamed up to a alien spacecraft where you are trapped as a hostage, this is Mothership Zeta.
Once aboard, you of course have to find a way to get out but the only way to do that is to help out others who are captured by the aliens as well. The way you escape your cell is by starting a small fight that catches the aliens attention and let’s you have at them. Once escaped, you have to go around the entire spaceship looking for a way out while to certain task’s to get the others to help you.
Now I felt that Mothership Zeta is a great piece of content although you won’t be missing out on much if you buy it, but I like to call it “the add-on content that doesn’t matter”. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Mothership Zeta is tons of fun to play epically when using the new energy weapons although they feel somewhat powerful once you get back to the wasteland. Either way I had a blast playing this piece of content although there isn’t much special about it.
Mothership Zeta is a load of fun but, as I’ve said in my previous reviews, there are issues that possibly won’t surprise anyone who has played any of the Fallout 3 add-on content. But for Mothership Zeta, there weren’t as much as I expected. There were the occasional freeze issue but rarely any framerate drops. This leaves me wondering why the other pieces of content aren’t like Mothership Zeta as terms to issues since for this content there rarely are. Some of the issues though is when you get probed by the aliens (yes, sadly your character has to take is like a man or women depending who you are) the game will lock up freeze, and sometimes when you have to destroy generators later. Now everything is still the same here in terms of gameplay and for sounds but one thing that is different is how when your low on health you can use arch ways to heal up and new to the game, is something called alien epoxy which is used to fix weapons and I recommend you use it on the rare weapons such as the Tesla Cannon.
MotherShip Zeta is a nice piece of content which I enjoyed from start to finish although this is just an add-on content for you to do to spend more hours on the game and of course you can come back to but has nothing to do with the game itself. Either way, it’s fun to play nonetheless.
