  • Summary: A standalone adventure in which you play as Leliana during the mission--and betrayal--that changed her forever. It is years before the Blight, and Leliana is a young bard whose curiosities run more to passion than to the Chant of Light. Her mentor, Marjolaine, is determined to inflict the Orlesian game of intrigue on Ferelden. It is a time of adventure and excitement. And it cannot last. Expand

  1. Leliana's Song is an admirable addition to the Dragon Age: Origins storyline, but with only three hours of content there really is nothing here to write home about. Fans of the game that are looking to gain some back-story on one of the game's main characters should definitely check it out as it offers insight to some of the dialogue and story segments mentioned during Origins.
  2. This add-on doesn't reach for the stars, but it features a couple of great characters and a smattering of quality moments.
  3. 70
    It's short but packs in a lot of plot twists, fully voiced cut scenes and a number of conversations, as well as experience gain, room to level up, and the opportunity to customize your party to a degree. It's nothing revolutionary, but a solid addition to the ever expanding stable of adventures in BioWare's Dragon Age.
  4. How come that cunning thief and spy becomes a faithful servant of the Holy Order? Leliana's past sins are revealed in this very short, yet very charming story. [Issue#196]
  5. Unless you're a die hard fan of the Leliana character, the Leliana's Song DLC doesn't have much to offer. Two hours of linear gameplay hitting guards and other enemies, and a rather predictable story, but, hey, it's still a little bit more of Dragon Age to play until the sequel comes.

    How could the once great Bioware produce game that were suddenly getting blasted with red review scores? It all seemed to start soon after they were sucked into the 'Evil Empire, EA. They started to add something to their games called DLC. Presumably these letters stand for 'Done Like Crap'. Because they sure were. Almost every bit of DLC for Dragon Age and Mass Effect was a rip-off plain and simple. Some of it offered overpowered items. Some of it offered a couple of hours of game time. None of it evolved the game in question. For Dragon Age, a largely plot driven game, the DLC was lamentably bad. Please remember that in my new scoring system 5/10 0/10 in the old reckoning. Let's hope if Bioware continues with DLC in the future they eventually learn to make it worthwhile for the PLAYERS, not just a way of ripping-off their customers.

    THE GROT REVIEW CRITERIA: After a long time writing reviews like an anus, think its time to set a few bad habits straight: Stop insulting designers. Show some respect for the design process and getting games in circulation. Hence (1) No Red scores. (2) Game scores as follows: Bad Game 5/10. Poor Game 6/10. Mediocre Game: 7/10. Good Game 8/10. Great game 9/10. Stella Game 10/10. To get 10/10 it must be a game that can be (theoretically) play-able for 1000+ hours. Not only great but near endless fun. Games may be bad or poor but making them should earn respect. Thus even the worst POS will still be a 5/10. 0/10 no longer exists in my vocabulary. Yellow is the new red.
