The latest DLC for Fallout 3

 There has been a lot of controversy on the story of this expansion, as it revives the original character, who died on the original game (if you choose that option), and if you had become a genocidal maniac during the first game, on this DLC all seems to be forgiven, because it's assumed that you have done the "right" decision at the end. But, in the good side, it raises the level cap to 30, gives 14 new perks, new enemies, weapons, places, side-quests and achievements.

So, you wake up at the Citadel, the Brotherhood of Steel base, and realise you survived the explosion at the Jefferson Memorial. You are reported that the Enclave still has pockets of resistance and that it's up to you to help in the "mop up" process. In the first operation, you have support of hi-tech robot Liberty Prime on the attack of a secret Enclave base, but you suffer a major setback. You are forced to retreat to the Citadel to set a new plan of operations.

After that, you'll explore the underground of Old Olney power plant access, then the Presidential Metro under the White House that's almost identical to any other subway in DC, where you will find a new enemy, the though Ghoul Reavers (although they look just like the other ghouls), which can throw grenades.

From there you emerge at the Adams Air Force base, where you find the hi-tech super powerful Tesla Cannon energy weapon and an elite band of Enclave Hellfire Troops waiting for you with Heavy Incinerators, and improved flamethrower. From this point, action never ends as you face constant waves of enemies, until you reach the final battleground where, this time, you really survive and can still wander the Wasteland after the ending.

In general, this DLC it's the most innovative expansion for Fallout 3, with all these new stuff to explore and play with. It seems this is the last DLC for Fallout 3, but due to its success, there might be others "cooking in the oven" in the way for you. Until then, seize the chance of being able to still explore the Wasteland and raise your level to 30.
