Reviews for Fallout 3: The Pitt

This DLC doesn't want to be powerful, it's just is...

So, you wan't to be Spartacus, fight for the right reason, free a whole town of slaves, and then still feel like crap, as everyone hails you as a hero? Then look no further, then this DLC.... In the Lone Wanderer's latest adventure, he has to go undercover as a slave, in the mining hellhole, formerly known as Pittsburg. Here, he has to survive his most dangerous adventures yet, using only what he can find on the site, and his skills. The whole DLC does a really good job, of communicating the helplessness of the citizens of the Pitt. Furthermore, you also receive it...walking without my power armor for the first time in months made me naked, and since i haven't used melee weapons at all, i really missed my guns too. This adventure might be a little bleak, but it's also rather important, or at least, it was for the growth of my character. Sneaky type adventurers might have an easier time then i had, or at least, they can better prepare for the arena, but no matter what kind of character are you, you want to play this DLC Ii promise you.

Slavery is a thing?

When I played the Pitt I immediately found that none of the choices were straight forward good or bad.It is hard to make choices and you need to do some nasty things to survive.Very good dlc but not for the faint of heart

Brutal...In All of the Right Ways

For those who think the base Fallout 3 game and the other DLCs are too easy, The Pitt will make them think twice, maybe three times. It is unlike any other area known to Fallout 3 fans. The explorable area is completely urban, ruled by the Pitt Raiders who won't shed any mercy. No matter how tough you are, the raiders always take you as a slave, and you have to earn your right to be top dog. Your favorite weapons, equipment, etc are taken away and until you prove yourself you can survive, you stay as a slave. Later on, similar to TeS IV: Oblivion, you must participate in an arena and after winning, the real juicy part of the DLC can finally be tasted. Your items are returned and after having a private chat with the ruler of the Pitt, their fate is decided by you. Why is that? Even with new weaponry, like a silenced and scoped assault rifle and an automated saw in your hands, the mutated beings, the Trogs, won't go away and the threat of being infected in the industrial soaked landscape won't even be on a dying man's wish. I give this DLC an A- for having a solid gameplay basis but the short and underdeveloped storyline prevented me from giving out a higher score.

Definitely Decent

The Pitt DLC for Fallout 3 is set in glorious, run-downed Pittsburgh. For the most part it is pretty fun. But after you do all the quests and find all the goodies, there is very little to keep you coming back to the Steel City. The missions in this DLC are good though and have some interesting characters. But the non-replayability of the DLC really hinders it from being truly great (like Point Lookout). Overall, the Pitt is good purchase. Just make sure you aren't spending too much.

Who wants to go to Pittsburgh? Well, too bad.

Okay, the second DLC fared much better. It feels more like Fallout, with actual story segments and choices to be made. Sure, there's some silly bits, like the metal ingots, but overall it works out. And the combat heavy end feels earned rather than the "oh, here's Alaska and look! Chinese soldiers!" of the prior DLC. The Pitt is recommended, and showed promise for the remaining DLC releases to come.
