Fallout: New Vegas: Old World Blues

I've only just started playing Fallout: New Vegas about a month ago. I haven't even gotten to the point yet where I would need to download any of the DLC packs either to enhance the story or raise the level cap. Yet, I had heard so many good things about Old World Blues that I just had to download it and give it a try. After playing it for a few days, I was itching to do a Fallout: New Vegas Old World Blues review. And you know what? Old World Blues is probably the best Fallout DLC pack that I have ever played.

Our hero is made the subject of a crazy science experiment gone awry. This particular DLC is dominated by a group of quirky characters which include wacky floating brains, talking appliances and robot scorpions. Old World Blues had me laughing out loud several times because of its goofy humor and its off-the-wall storyline. The gameplay is, of course, the same as it has always been, but that's to be expected and that's what makes Fallout New Vegas great.

My verdict is that Old World Blues is well worth the asking price of $10. For that minimal cash outlay, you're getting a new large area to explore, new perks, new technology and a great storyline.
