With a tagline like "Get Your Brain Back!", I suspect that many of you already picked up Fallout: New Vegas' Old World Blues add-on out of sheer curiosity when it was released earlier this week. But in the event that you've resisted any such temptations, then you might want to check out our new two-page review for a better idea of what to expect from the DLC. I leave you with the intro:
With Chris Avellone back in the writer's chair, it was pretty much expected that the brand-new Fallout: New Vegas DLC, Old World Blues, would sport a more adventurous design than Honest Hearts, and perhaps even the survival-horror experiment that was Dead Money. The end result, though, is perhaps even a little overboard for what most fans of the series could have expected - it's equal parts Planescape: Torment in terms of morbid absurdity, and 1950s cheeseball sci-fi film. Despite the odd combination, though, Old World Blues is the strongest DLC for New Vegas yet. The real question isn't so much "should you get it", but what it represents for the Fallout franchise, and for its fans.
