Promising but not enough

Fallout: New Vegas Lonesome Road continues the series roller coaster like quality to it's DLC. Lonesome Road has a promising concept, and plenty of new weapons and areas to explore, but the story falls flat.

First the good: The setting is great, with a definite cold war vibe complete with nuclear missile bases, shattered 50's towns and an expansive landscape. The new weapons are nice, and the enemies challenging.

That being said, the DLC feels isolated, as you will typically be traveling completing by yourself with no interaction with any friendly NPCs. The Courier Six/Ulysses story drives the DLC to it's conclusion, but the point of the whole thing is muddy and, dare I say, "preachy."

If you're like me, you may find that this content is worth playing because it exists, but doesn't payoff in the end. I still recommend the trip though, if only to complete the New Vegas universe.

Alone on the road.

This DLC does add a new landscape, it's wrecked apart by storms and earthquakes. There are alot new enemies, you can even fight Ulysses! There are alot new weapons including: flare guns, satchel charges and even shoulder-mounted machine guns. There also are new perks, a few great new recipes, even a auto-inject stimpacks! And the best part, this dlc raises the level cap by 5!
