An expedition into the unspoiled wilderness of Utah's Zion National Park goes horribly wrong when your caravan is ambushed by a tribal raiding band. As you try to find a way back to the Mojave you become embroiled in a war between tribes and a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man. The decisions you make will determine the fate of Zion.

New Perks and Weapons: Survive the wild with Tribal Wisdom or exact increased damage with Eye for Eye. Honest Hearts offers a host of new perks and weapons including the .45 Auto Pistol, .45

Honest Hearts is another DLC for Fallout New Vegas, a rather average one to be exact, it offers about 6 hours of gameplay and in typical DLC fashion player will get new weapons, armors and perks to unlock. Apart from that you get 5 additional levels to get. There is a trend that each bigger DLC extends your maximum level by 5 so if you have Dead Money your maximum lv will be 40, if you'll only get Honest Hearts it will only be 35. What should be the main point of this DLC should be the story but don't expect much from it.
It seems that every review either likes this dlc, or finds it disappointing. I can relate to booth actually. The adventure starts of promisingly, and i really liked that you can save some dumb adventurer by being perceptive, but once you arrive at the canyons, you cant help, but feel overpowered compared to the locals. Maybe, it was only in my case, because i already finished the main game by the time this came out, but still, those spear throwing sad sobs had no chance against my flamethrower. The whole setting reminds me of fallout 2, too bad it reminds me of the beginning of the game, which wasn't bad, but i was always glad to leave it behind.
I really liked the other docs but the idea of going to a national park and the tribal companions do not appeal to me.Althoygh it has its moments and unique new weapons I would say that youre not missing out on anything special if you don't buy this dlc.
Honest Hearts is set in Utah, far away from New Vegas. Despite its differences, it is still bounded by the law "War never changes". It all begins when you, the player, decides to accompany a group to Utah but only you survive an ambush. Then, you are taken to a man who has a legend built around him and must choose the fate of those who reside in that land. The DLC's primary strength is its exploration and action value. The treacherous lands yield fairly primitive tribes who constantly battle each other with some mutated creatures making some appearances. Another great characteristic of this DLC is the environment. Travel to "Zion Canyon", an area mostly undamaged by radiation and have no worries of radiation poisoning throughout most of your time. It is a nice change to how players are constantly exposed to encountering irradiated sectors of the base game. The storyline is pretty good but did not cement itself fully. It is underdeveloped and had potential but it soon becomes tiresome. The best attributes Honest Hearts has to offer is its unique weapons that can be carried back to the Mojave Desert. The .45 Auto Pistol and .45 Auto Submachine gun are my favorites (due their caliber) and can dispatch most enemies with ease. There are also unique melee weapons as well for those who prefer to bash enemies with a club or a paw from a slain mutated bear. I give this DLC a C due to its refreshing atmosphere and new weapons to shoot with but it is far from being great due to several issues.
Honest Hearts is a journey in the Valley of Zion, a new area populated by human tribes and big mutant monsters. The new area is really big and offers a good atmosphere. The quest also has a nice story and great characters. Unfortunately that's all! It's a good DLC but not that original compared to the others.
