Fallout 3: Broken Steel review at GoGamingGiant

Matt Joseph of G3 raves about the third expansion for Fallout 3, Broken Steel.

Excerpt: "Overall, it is my favorite DLC out of the three and is by far the best out of the three. In my experience it's about a 6-8 hour adventure, even more if you want to hit level 30. Along with some great new perks, the awesome Tesla Cannon and some great areas to explore and wander, Broken Steel is 100% worth the purchase."

I knew that the review was just going to be mass praise for the DLC, because that's all people tend to do on most unknown sites these days. It's either the best ever, or the worst ever, and nothing in between. My problems with the DLC were:

1. Level Cap - Having the level cap raised when I've completed all the side missions during my initial play through of the game MONTHS AGO, just makes it so I don't care about getting to level 30. I played through the DLC, and I'm currently sitting at level 26 because I've killed off damn near every enemy on the map. The only way I've been able to level is by going to Old Olney, killing all the deathclaws, then going back after they've respawned. THIS IS A PROBLEM BETHESDA. It's also a problem which should have properly been mentioned in the review.

2. Length - Again, it's barely a few hours of play given to players who have a seasoned character at level 20. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE MORE PLAY TIME?! Five hours is not much playtime in a game like Fallout 3, yet this is the third DLC to short change us for playtime. Also, the time it takes for you to get to level 30 if you've completed all the side missions in the game, is just plain stupid. I shouldn't have to grind my way up to level 30, especially after I've completed all the side missions, and I have nothing to do but roam the Wasteland killing random enemies.

3. Ending - The game goes from ending too quickly, to not having a damn ending at all. Make up your damn mind Bethesda.

In short, the DLC is the best of the three packs, but it is hardly a 9 or a 10 of 10 like this reviewer says.
