While roaming the waste’s you suddenly find out a boat has docked at the mouth of the Potomac river and awaits for you to take the trip to Point Lookout.
You arrive at the boat and a woman approaches you asking to help find her daughter at Point Lookout, of course you accept and while there you meet Tobar the ferryman, who asks if you would like to visit Point Lookout. Of course you buy a ticket and set sail to the southern part of Maryland. When you reach Point Lookout, Tobar tells you there is smoke coming from a house and says you should investigate it while you roam around the area, this is where your quest begins.
Aside from the other Fallout DLC’s this is possibly the biggest add-on to date. Point Lookout is huge other from the capital wasteland. Just exploring the area alone will take you multiple times just to explore the whole place when your not doing quests. Point Lookout is a whole different area and once you get off the boat the first thing you may do is investigate the house, what I did was explore because it’s a whole new experience away from the wasteland we all know. Bethesda did a great job making Point Lookout, the swamp vibe takes you out of the wasteland and let’s you know there were more areas effected by the bombs.
When your exploring you’ll get a chance to meet the folks of Point Lookout and when you do, they’ll greet you by trying to take you down and out. Gameplay is of course the same here, new weapons such as the double-barrel shotgun will make you want to approach everything differently. You may also want to know that this is one of the most challenging pieces of content that I have played thus far and there are many things you won’t see in the wasteland such as, a Swamplurk (which looks like the swamp man surprisingly) and the hill-billies who lurk around the area.
Now, like my past Fallout 3 DLC review’s Point Lookout does have it’s fair share of issues and like all the others, there are audio issues with the dialogue, there are still framerate issues and freezing issues and hopefully like I said in my past reviews, they will be patched asap. Point Lookout is possibly one piece of Fallout 3 content you need to download if you aren’t going to buy them all or some of them, this is worth your purchase.
