When i first looked at the downloadable content packs for fallout 3 i thought Operation Anchorage looked right up my street - i was very wrong, apart from the spoils you receive after you complete the expansion i found the storyline very very linear, boring and too short. Its a shame both of these expansions are on the same disc since it has brought down my overall score for the combination: - with this said The Pitt proved to be fairly enjoyable and had a stronger stroyline while sacraficing some free-roamability (nothing you would find it OA anyway). As i mentioned before there is some good loot to be found in both of these expansions, especially The Pitt and the storyline and character encounters are also pretty good in The Pitt too. They seem to have really worked on the landscape and cityscape in The Pitt and also included some pretty cool new weapons you can get your hands on. I would really reccommend The Pitt but not so much Operation Anchorage, for those xbox live gold users who are willing to buy point cards i would suggest choosing that option to avoid Operation Anchorage unless you are really a diehard fallout 3 fan.
Both DLC episodes are great fun, for Operation Anchorage I would reccomend turning the difficulty up to hard if you usually play normal, this way you get more challange for your money. The pitt is fantastic if your a fan of the mad max movies! nicely written story and some intresting taboo situations.
Best of all is the price, to buy 1600 microsoft points on xbox live you would have to purchase 2000 for £17.00 so this is quite a few quid cheaper so good value for money.
Operation Anchorage: Very short, but a great story. Very easy, you hardly ever die and your team mate never loses health. 4/5
The Pitt: Very good, people say that it game crashes and glitches. it only glitched once and that was it.. The story was fantastic, the setting was brilliant and the game was cool... 5/5
As many people have said, operation Anchorage is very short, but still very enjoyable when you are playing it, great fun as it is dam near impossible to run out of ammo. THough i have only played the opening stages of the pitt, it is living upto expectations and isa as good, if not better than operation anchorage
quickly to the person below me; you don't need xbox live to play the disc, i don't have it and have just completed operation anchorage. which brings me to the main point, operation anchorage was too short, i was expecting much more. although i havent played the pitt yet, so can't comment on that, hopefully it is much better than anchorage!
