Product Description

Platform: PC

Requires Fallout 3 to play. The Pitt Description: The Pitt allows you to travel to the post-apocalyptic remains of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and become embroiled in a conflict between slaves and their Raider masters. Explore a sprawling settlement ravaged by time, neglect, nuclear radiation, and moral degradation. The Pitt is filled with morally grey choices, shady NPCs, new enemies, new weapons, and much more. Story: The Pitt opens with a desperate radio message, and a meeting with its sender, an escaped slave named Wernher. Wernher claims that the leader of "The Pitt" has created a cure for mutations... and he needs you to go in and retrieve it. From there, the player can proceed in a number of ways, in true Fallout 3 style. Do you fight your way in, or disguise yourself as a slave? Ally with the slaves, or join their Raider overlords? The Pitt is very morally ambiguous - there's no real right or wrong, just choices to be made, sides to be chosen, and a mystery that could send shockwaves throughout the entire Wasteland. Operation Anchorage Description: Operation: Anchorage. Enter a military simulation and fight in one of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe - the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from its Chinese Communist invaders. Gain access to unique armor, weapons, and exotic gadgets while you build and command interactive Strike Teams to win the battle and defeat the Chinese base. Story: The Brotherhood Outcasts are trying to acquire advanced military technology, and the only way to open the vault containing these relics is by completing a tactical simulation only you can enter. In Operation: Anchorage you will re-live the epic Battle of Anchorage from Fallout lore. Find your way into the simulation, stripped of resources, and survive within the rules set up by the simulation’s creators. The Chinese red army is everywhere, so secure the surrounding mountain side and fight your way into the Chinese base.

There are really 2 different things here, and I'll try and deal with them separately. Also, to try and clear up confusion, there are several ways to get these add ons. You can get them from Games for Windows LIVE (GFWL)individually, or you can buy this add on disk with the BOTH of them on it. The software is the same. With GFWL you can, get each one by itself (and others as well). If you buy this disk, you get 2 at a time.

Operation Anchorage was the first Add on that was available for Fallout 3. Personally, I didn't care for it... It takes place in a "simulation", and outside the Fallout 3 storyline. There's some that takes place in the capital wasteland, but only about 10% of it. There are some new weapons (the Gauss rifle is pretty cool), but other than that, its pretty underwhelming. I found Anchorage pretty confusing, and it gave me a headache sometimes when I had to wander around lost in a maze of nondescript frozen paths. It is very very linear, as well as being pretty boring. I could have lived without it.

The Pitt on the other hand, I enjoyed quite a bit. The Pitt takes place in Pittsburgh (hence, the Pitt). It is another decimated city like Washington DC, where there are mutants, slaves, tyrants, mercenaries, etc. It does relate somewhat back to the main Fallout 3 storyline, and does make sense. The whole environment is pretty creepy, dark, and depressing. There are some good characters, as well as some interesting places to explore and some cool weapons, armor, and weird people you encounter. There's also another "moral dilemma" choice you need to make during the story. Overall, the Pitt was really a decent add on to the main Fallout 3 storyline.

I've also played through Broken Steel and Point Lookout, both which were quite good (especially Point Lookout). I will post a review for those when they become available here on Amazon

Basically it's the DLC on a disk. It comes with a cool poster with vault boy all over it. Loses a star because it downgrades fallout 3 to v1.4 if not careful, but can easily be fixed.

(UPDATE)
It also removes the need for a disk to be in the drive to play Fallout 3! I wish i could give this game's one lost star back but amazo won't let me so this product is 5/5 stars!

I feel compelled to review this, seeing that it has 1 star overall.

This is not a bad product. If you enjoyed Fallout 3, you will like this game. It adds the first two expansions (or DLCs), Operation Anchorage and The Pitt.

If you have not tried these yet because you did not want to use Games for Windows Live, I would highly recommend this.

As for the "malware" it installs, I have had no problems with Securom. [...]
-*Buy this if you liked Fallout 3*- It will add hours of fun to your game!

I bought this with a great deal of anticipation because of the hype and some of the better reviews.

The potential was there but I think the temptation to make a quick buck by the publisher won out.

The best thing about Operation Anchorage was the stunningly beautiful mountain terrain one finds yourself in at first. Just wonderful. The first time I was in the mountains I just stared off into the clouds and listened to the wind. Just stunning.

The following combat however is completely average with a totally linear play style typical of the most common place type in the most common FPS. The people you come in contact with are not attractive or engaging, IMO, at all. You supposedly get a field promotion to lieutenant and command of a squad, but you have only the most limited control over what they do as in attack or not attack, and even that order you give only once. Once they start attacking I found no way to influence the stuff they did.

(SPOILER) The missions were unimaginative, 1) blow up three giant artillery pieces that were bombarding Anchorage, 2) take out a listening post, and 3) take out a refuelling station for some Chimera tanks I think they were named. BTW, there was only one tank ya had to fight on normal difficulty level which you could take out with about 5 - 7 shots with your sniper rifle, lol.

The AI for the tank was absolutely retarded. While the tank should have been able to absolutely crush your squad if it didn't have anti-tank support or mines, it couldn't even turn around a corner of a wall to get to you. The laser beams it shot out hardly even hurt. What a laugh.

awesome dipped in awesome sauce. the Questing is good because there is no white or black, but varied shades of grey. You cannot be "good" without having to do some "bad" and you cannot be "bad" without having to do some "good",

A good add on for Fallout 3 but you can get caught up exploring and it becomes tedious. You can however finish fairly quickly if you make the right turns and take on the right enemies. There is also some great armor to be had--never deteriorates.

More places in the Fallout world to explore. More baddies to fight. The Pitt drops you to the level of a slave and then makes you fight your way back to former glory. Operation anchorage has you helping out the Outcasts by reliving the liberation of Alaska. I recommend this to anyone who is well into Fallout 3 and looking for more to do.
