Reviews for Fallout: New Vegas Honest Hearts
Rather disappointingGmen | Dec. 24, 2013 | See all Gmen's reviews »
Out of all the DLCs for FNV, I found this to be the least satisfying.
It had plenty of promise, what with new characters that are hinted at in the base game making an appearance here, but somehow it just doesn’t deliver. There’s a rather large map, but I just feel like there aren’t enough varied things going on, or places to go, as beautiful as this new area is -- certainly a change from what one is used to from playing FNV and the other DLCs. This is more like the Red Rock Canyon areas, but way bigger. It’s made frustrating by the fact that you have to navigate all these mountainous areas – often by going the long way around, made worse by the fact that your Pip-Boy map doesn’t seem to take height into account. And the game engine isn't the best when it comes to object or terrain manipulation. It just feels like an uninspired slog at the end of the day, running from one place to another undertaking samey quests, and battling with the layout of the area.
There are some new weapons to be had, and an increased level cap complete with new perks, but the overall experience feels somewhat lacking. It is also easily the shortest DLC in terms of play time, in my experience, albeit far from being a complete cakewalk. You’ll be able to get through it within a few hours. After playing the first DLC, Dead Money, this was a bit of a let down, in my view.
A good story, as well as a new area to exploreADUAN | Oct. 19, 2013 | See all ADUAN's reviews »
The DLC storyline of the Burned Man, as well as the people who are living in Zion Valley was a story I enjoyed. The character are once again, unique and memorable, and the Valley was a place that I enjoyed exploring in order to learn more about its tale. The new weapons and armor that the game provides are also fun to use, and the increased level cap as well as new perks are also an added bonus. This is the a DLC I recommend getting.
A new area!drafek | Aug. 19, 2013 | See all drafek's reviews »
This DLC is the best fallout:NV DLC in my opinion. It does add a really large new area, with alot of hills. The atmosphere really is done well. There also are new enemies, a really strong Yao Guai and Zion Canyon and alot more. There also are new perks, and a few rare new weapons, a few weapons are a auto submachine gun, the compliance regular, War Clubs and yao guai gauntlets. Worth getting!
