CheatCC says, "For a few obvious reasons, Broken Steel is a must-have for serious Fallout 3 players. This doesn't mean it's perfect. After the great changes in settings found in the past two expansions, the third installment feels like old hat in the visual department. That said, there are certainly some cool things to see, fun things to do, great weapons to pick up, and interesting places to explore. Altogether, DLC number three is a no-brainer."
