THERE ARE 4 TOTAL DLCS IN NEW VEGAS AND THEY ARE ALL PRETTY EXPANSIVE AND UNQIUE. ALTHOUGH THIS IS TRUE, NOT ALL OF THEM ARE GREAT. ONE OF THEM IS DOWNRIGHT AWFUL.... SPOILERS
SIERRA MADRE: Dead Money
First off, you are wearing a bomb collar. Sound bad? How about there are sensors everywhere to track where the collar is. The collar beeps, tied to the sensor, counting down how many seconds you have before you head blows up.
Considering this is one of the longer DLCs it’s pretty obnoxious always dying… All the time. It takes a few hours to play.
In addition, don’t expect to bring any of your belongings. You are stripped of everything. Even the clothes on your back. You’re thrown in with nothing while these crazy breed on ghosts tear you down with their bear trap claws. (If you love the sound of the psychos in Borderlands 2 then you will love them). This is also the only DLC where you can't get a follower. You walk this lonely road all alone.
On the positive side the characters you find are pretty cool. There are callbacks to the characters around Fallout like Dean Domino. There is also God/Dog who is one of the most interesting characters in Fallout 4.
This leads me to the man behind it all. There is also a special vault at the end that might take you down as well. I’ll leave that be since it’s a super spoiler, but it does make it worth it in the end.
Lonesome Road: The Divide
The last DLC…
Full of Tunnelers, Death Claws and chaos.
You are walking a lonely road… But not without a special guest who if you found them in the normal game it’s even more special.
You get to keep all of your items which is very helpful. The story line is also pretty interesting. At the end you might just get to pick who lives or dies and I'm not talking about Hoover Dam.
It’s listed as the second best because it was exciting and fun but not as much as the top pick.
Honest Hearts: Zion National Park/Happy Trails Caravan
Although the visuals and landscape in this DLC is one of the best the storyline didn’t live up to it.
I did this DLC in one to two sittings. (Keep in mind my sessions are pretty long) but this one was the fastest. It almost didn’t feel worth playing… Hence this segment is the shortest. There isn't much to say about it which speaks for itself.
The best part of the DLC is you get to meet Joshua Graham the favorite New Vegas character on the internet. An estranged Legion member. There is something about the burned man that drives the internet wild.
Welcome to the big empty: Big Mountain
Big mountain is hard in the way that the characters are tough but everything else makes up for it. The weapons are the best out of any DLC (maybe even the whole game). Plus, it’s the only DLC with an easily accessible “safe house” for you where you can fix your gear up and buy things. The safe house also features some pretty funny characters which you have to unlock but it’s worth it (there is a particular small appliance near the bedroom that is my favorite). Plus, there is a safe and bed... Imagine that? In Fallout?!?!?!
The story line is fun as well. The doctors you meet and work with are pretty hilarious. This DLC is the most light hearted one. The ending isn’t as satisfying as I would have liked it but there is a big payoff in the end. A BIG ONE! So push through!
