There’s still plenty of exploring to be done, ED-E’s a lovely WALL-E-esque companion, and Ulysses is a cool villain with a wonderful voice. The ending’s superb (much better than both New Vegas and Fallout 3), and I never was bored or wanted to give up. It’s not the full Fallout experience, but as the ultimate final test of your skills it works very nicely. Now then… when’s Skyrim out again?

Kijkend naar het totaalplaatje, weet Lonesome Road grotendeels te voldoen aan onze wensen. Ook al worden niet al onze vragen beantwoord, toch is de ongeveer acht uur durende weg die je moet volgen een intensieve rit om niet snel te vergeten. De sfeer in The Divide is om van te smullen, met een wat hopeloze ondertoon die constant aanwezig is. Wie goed oplet, zal een hoop interessante achtergrondinformatie tot zich kunnen krijgen. Helaas is The Divide niet zo heel groot en is er niet zoveel ruimte voor verkenning als we hadden gehoopt. Maar de toevoeging van enkele nieuwe interessante wapens en het feit dat je vijf nieuwe levels mag vergaren, maakt veel goed en zorgt er mede voor dat Lonesome Road een uitbreiding is die de liefhebber van Fallout: New Vegas eigenlijk gewoon in handen moet hebben. Al is het alleen maar om verder in het verhaal te komen en meer over de wereld van Fallout te weten te komen.

Fallout: New Vegas bygger vidare på den grund som lades i Fallout 3 och förlägger handlingen i den ogästvänliga Nevadaöknen. Det finns många speltimmar att hitta här och det är ingen tvekan om att Obsidian lyckats pressa in Fallout-känslan. Trots att många uppdrag, platser och personer imponerar så saknar jag de riktigt stora höjdpunkterna som Fallout 3 bjöd på och en del rejäla tekniska problem tynger vad som annars är ett väldigt bra rollspel i en postapokalyptisk värld.

Personligen gillar jag de dryga sex timmar jag spenderade i The Divide, miljöerna bjuder på hyfsad variation mellan trånga utrymmen och öppna ytor med raserade städer och annat vi känner igen. Manuset är väl kanske inte lika bra som det var i den förra expansionen med de briljanta tok-robotarna som kivades mästerligt, men samtidigt känner jag här att Obsidian levererar sitt bästa DLC hittils till Fallout: New Vegas. En bra expansion som håller sig nära ursprungsspelet.

A solid romp through the Great Divide and some answers given from Ulysses makes this a DLC to get for Fallout: New Vegas players. Some bad bugs crept up and Ulysses can be a little bit annoying in the way he talks. The story was a little disappointing, but not too bad. A little short and a little linear for those that like to wander and want a lot to explore.

And what would the new Fallout be without the glitches and execution blunders that so frequently intrude on your travels? A tunneler might clip into the environment, following you around and attacking you from beneath the ground. (Contrary to what the creature's name might imply, this is a bug, not a feature.) A rock hovers in the sky as if dangling from an unseen thread. Invisible walls prevent you from vaulting over obstacles you should be able to clear. These returning issues become less and less forgivable as time and technology march forward. Fortunately, this adventure's key developments help overshadow them, as do some new weapons (a rocket launcher called Old Glare among them), a level cap increase, and other goodies. Nevertheless, Fallout: New Vegas - Lonesome Road doesn't fully satisfy. The confined environments make for unexceptional exploration, and the long-winded dialogue never reaches a proper climax.

After spending around seven hours with Lonesome Road one thing became clear: you won’t want to purchase it for the story. Like other downloadable content packs, you’ll gain five additional levels and some sweet weapons worth some serious cash…er bottle caps. Unfortunately, those are the only major benefits. In this case, only Fallout fans desperate for more content should embark on this oddly paced journey through the Divide.
Thunderbolt Games (Oct 05, 2011)
Although it lacks the unrelenting difficulty of Dead Money and the inventiveness of Old World Blues, Lonesome Road is still superior to the lacklustre Honest Hearts. The DLC provides a few (depending on your commitment to exploration and challenge-completing) hours of gaming but nothing really significant or memorable happens until the final quest, where you confront Uylsess and learn some truth about your mutual pasts. The result of the inevitable showdown presents you with some hard choices that alter the main game fairly significantly; opening up new locations, characters and having a large impact on your reputation. Viewed and played as a single chapter in the game’s main story-arc, Lonesome Road is fairly enjoyable, but its blandness, lack of more new enemies and uninspiring quests let it down.
Atomic Gamer (Sep 22, 2011)
Fallout: New Vegas always had a bit of a melancholy tone to it, and now the journey is winding to a close, as developer Obsidian Entertainment is fulfilling their promise to release three final downloadable addons for their hit action/RPG. After the release of the Dead Money DLC, things got a bit iffy, but then they announced three new $10 adventures, each delivering a good six to ten hours of first-person shooting and RPG yumminess to close out the New Vegas legacy and end post-release support for the game. In many people's opinions, these add-ons were only getting better as we dug into some of the weirdest, most entertaining, deepest stories we've seen since the advent of paid DLC. The fourth and final one, Lonesome Road, was set to be the best yet, but at some point, something got derailed. It's hard to tell if something got broken in the early design or whether something got rushed at the end, but the result is disappointing to say the least.
Spazio Games (Oct 10, 2011)
Fallout: New Vegas - Lonesome Road è un prodotto destinato solo ai veri appassionati del brand; in effetti, gli aspetti positivi del DLC in questione si risolvono in un discreto livello di difficoltà, buono per far guadagnare ulteriori cinque livelli di esperienza ai giocatori più smaliziati, ed in premesse narrative decisamente interessanti, che tuttavia scadono in un intreccio tutto sommato dimenticabile. Se a ciò si aggiunge una certa ripetitività delle quest proposte e alcune imprecisioni tecniche, si comprende come il prodotto non possa aspirare a una piena sufficienza.

Fans angry that they need to fork out more money to see the "real" ending of the game can rest easy. The events of Lonesome Road build to a suitably apocalyptic climax, but it has none of the depth, pace or meaning of the face-off between House, Caesar and the NCR that rounded out the original storyline. Completists will want to see it through, just to say they did, but it's a shame to see such an epic atomic age narrative go out with a whimper rather than a bang.

Fallout New Vegas : Lonesome Road est une extension décevante, qui fait figure d'immense bras d'honneur à l'intention de tous ceux qui appréciaient le jeu de base pour ses interactions sociales et son potentiel rôlistique. Cet ultime add-on téléchargeable déroule son long couloir bourrin en faisant fi de tout ce qui fait un bon jeu de rôle : la narration, les quêtes et les PNJ, ici totalement laissés pour compte. Il ne lui reste dès lors pour convaincre l'acquéreur que son ambiance travaillée ainsi que les conséquences entraînées par le choix final. Mais il est plus que temps d'arrêter les frais et de passer à autre chose, la licence ayant largement prouvé son incompatibilité avec le principe même du DLC.
