Fallout 3: The Pitt Review - Refined Beauty In A Smaller World

Fallout 3 made a tremendous impression for RPG lovers everywhere who were fans of Bethesda Softworks, creators of the famous Elder Scrolls RPG franchise. With the expanded post-apocalyptic world, players were allowed to see the aftermath of certain ideologies that led the world to a gloomy fate of nothing but grey and brown piles of rock and dirt. With such expansive and enjoyable gameplay, Bethesda did not stop there and released Fallout 3: Operation Anchorage DLC. Finally, the 2nd DLC has arrived with The Pitt, and it’s a tremendous package of fun that is worth every penny in the small but wide world of Pennsylvania (PA).

The overarching story with The Pitt leads players to the post-apocalyptic remains of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There is a rumored cure for mutations, but you have to infiltrate the raider base to discover the truths behind these rumors. Disguised as a slave, players will become enmeshed in a conflict between slaves and their Raider masters and the ugly Trogs. Pittsburgh completely supplements the dark and ironic beauty that Fallout 3 is known for and is much more aesthetically enthralling than Operation Anchorage. As you explore a sprawling settlement ravaged by time, radiation, and moral squalor, there are more improved duplicitous NPCs than there was in a majority of the square areas for Fallout 3 itself.

The Pitt comes with the trademark of morally grey choices that accompany another interesting storyline, and that unravels the world of Fallout 3 further. With no newer weapons from the previous game, the Pitt gives new slaves even newer weapons such as the AutoAxe, a blood splattered serrated rotary blade just ready for flesh and bones. The Infiltrator silenced assault rifle will be your new friend as well.

Along for incentive, Bethesda has thrown in three new perks and a few achievements to make the fairly lengthy gameplay rewarding and satisfying outside of great action, environment, and furthermore amazing storyline similar to Fallout 3.

Fallout 3: The Pitt is an impressive downloadable content package that is more directly related to Fallout 3 than Operation Anchorage. Operation Anchorage focused more on the epic Battle of Anchorage from Fallout lore and the origins which was pleasant for the conception of Fallout historians, but not quite as great for players who loved Fallout 3 more than the previous two games. Fallout 3: The Pitt certainly refines clear choices that Fallout 3 did not do so greatly with by increasing the actual personalities between NPCs, including more NPCs in a small area, keeping the storyline more gripped than Operation Anchorage, and keeping and further enhancing on the extraordinary environment that realized Fallout 3 nativity. Fallout 3: The Pitt is a clear and wise choice for players that love Fallout 3 and want more, and players looking for a more enjoyable experience in Fallout 3 if they have not already found it. The Pitt has laid the groundwork for everyone to wait for an even better and more exciting 3rd downloadable content package in Fallout 3: Broken Steel.
