Operation Anchorage for Fallout 3 is the first DLC made for the game. Op Anchorage will have you going into virtual reality to fight the mentioned Alaska war in the main game story.
Nothing in Operation Anchorage is particularly tied to the main storyline, and doesn't really effect anything in the wasteland. The DLC is mostly action based, with you fighting Chinese soldiers amongst other American troops.
With the DLC you get a bump to experience, some new weapons, and most notably the Stealth suit. This is cool, and great for those with high enough stats to really sneak around undetected.
Overall though, Operation Anchorage is very limited in scope, with small battles and less playtime than you might expect. This DLC is decent enough for what it is.

Operation Anchorage offers a tidy campaign with a couple of great end-game items. The expansion is explicitly combat-oriented, where your pc is a special-ops soldier fighting in the world war that preceded the fallout universe. At later points, you'll get to set and receive back up from squads. The campaign is fun, but a bit short.
Regardless, the best part of Operation Anchorage is that you'll get to keep some top level items afterwards. For example, the stealth armor can generate a cloaking field in sneak mode without necessitating one-time use stealth boys.

I bought this I think about the time it came out, and out of all the DLC it's still the one that I enjoy the most! Having played the original Fallout games a bit, this is probably the most old school of the content, and while while Broken Steel is probably the only 'expansion pack' for Fallout 3, I must say this adds a whole lot more to the game and takes about 4-6 hours to complete. I would like to give even a top rating, but truth be told it is a bit narrow in scope, but very fun regardless :)

In this DLC you've to go into a virtual reality, in this reality, alaska is being attacked by china. The expansion is done really well, it's really shooter-based, but the story is also done well. There are alot of new weapons and ofcourse armor's. The detail in this expansion is done really well. You also can choose your ending in this DLC, which is done really good. Sadly you can't keep your items after leaving the virtual reality, but because we're on pc, we can just use control command if you really want them. Pretty good dlc, I enjoyed it because it was a little different than the main story-line.
