Gamer Limit (Oct 14, 2009)
Bethesda really put a lot of care into The Pitt. The excellent setup, twist, unique art direction, and chilling atmosphere are all aspects of a great piece of DLC that simply shouldn’t be missed, despite the pack’s short length.
Thunderbolt Games (Nov 22, 2009)
Although The Pitt is a bit on the short side overall, it offers the perfect mix of the core Fallout 3 experience with a great new story, location, enemies, quests and weapons. While that experience is slightly marred by the myriad of glitches that Fallout 3 is now infamous for, the excellent level design and desperate atmosphere make The Pitt a memorable location you won’t want to leave undiscovered. Well that, and you might want Fallout 3’s version of a chainsaw.
No Sleep Gamer, The (Oct 14, 2009)
This DLC has the best plot and graphics so far, but you may reach the end unsatisfyingly soon if you decide not to bother searching for all the ingots. On the plus side, unlike the Anchorage DLC, you can revisit the Pitt afterwards to pick up any items you may have missed.
IGN (Oct 05, 2009)
If I hadn't experienced so many bugs while playing through The Pitt, I would wholeheartedly recommend it. The download might be a little short for your money, depending on your tastes and how much bang you expect for your buck, but the quests are fun and The Pitt matches that feeling of despair that Fallout 3 does so well. If you can make it through without any glitches, you'll find a lot to like here. Until a patch comes, good luck.
PlayStation Lifestyle (Oct 30, 2009)
Terrible voice acting; robotic characters The devastated world of The Pitt is great location for Fallout 3 The DLC is incredibly short, and pales in comparison to the other DLC
