First Looks at The Pitt

The D.I.C.E. Summit in Vegas is the place where the major gaming media got some hands-on time with Fallout 3 - The Pitt. Here's IGN:

If you weren't thrilled with Operation: Anchorage's heavy focus on combat, you'll likely enjoy The Pitt a lot more. There's lots of dialogue, several side quests, and a bigger emphasis on exploration for this second game add-on. There are several different ways you can approach the process of getting into the slave camp. I decided to just walk up and say hi. That didn't go over so well with the slavers. And if you're worried that all of this "saving the day" business is going to turn your evil character good, don't. I found at least one place to be nasty inside of the steel mill. While the slaves sweated with steel production, one slave had carved out a niche for himself. He sells information to his captors as a snitch. Give him some juicy gossip and he'll trade you some stimpaks for the info.​
Gamespy didn't have much to add, but did offer this little nugget I found amusing:

While I really enjoyed Operation: Anchorage, I agreed with Gerald's assertions that it really didn't feel like the Fallout 3 that we fell in love with late last year. This was mainly due to the fact that it felt a lot more like a straight-up shooter than an RPG, and while that's not really a bad thing, it's also not what Fallout 3 is all about.​
