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
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!
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!
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.Read more ›

Anchorage was pretty much just a prolonged "open the box of monies" sequence, no reward except loot and XP. Read morePublished on January 27, 2014 by Geartrooper
