For: Xbox 360 and PC
Requires: Fallout 3
From: Bethesda Softworks
ESRB Rating: Mature (blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes, strong language, use of drugs)
The liberation of Anchorage, Alaska, from an invading Chinese army has been a source of in-game whispers and references since the original "Fallout" debuted more than 11 years ago, but the $10 "Operation Anchorage" add-on marks the first time fans have been able to experience the event through their own eyes and thumbs.
As such, the first of three downloadable "Fallout 3? add-ons is also the most acute in its target audience. Its ties to the "Fallout 3? storyline are threadbare - you'll visit Anchorage via a simulation that exists inside the present setting of Washington, D.C., - and outside of experience points and some new weaponry and armor, little that happens within carries over to rest of the game."
