    The new area could be more original but still Dragonborn itself is extremely rich and is a surprisingly dark add-on. [Jan 2013]

    Despite a rather ho-hum main quest, Dragonborn is crammed with enough side quests and new stuff to be an exciting add-on.

    With new environments, enemies, and weapons, Dragonborn really delivers an expansion pack worthy of the Skyrim legacy.

    Dragonborn DLC.

    Pay 20 Euro if you want an 1½ hours long main quest which is poorly done. Walk on a island that i smaller than Shivering
    Isles start area. Quests that require killing of NPC's without any further questions or thinking or awareness. Minigames puzzles that could be done with major brain damage. Choice-less quests that force you into roleplay as Bethesda see fit.

    Sorry but Bethesda have become EA and this will be the last game/DLC i will ever buy from Bethesda again, sadly.

    Skyrim excellence (established) plus TES III nostalgia (the Red Mountain spewing out ash on the horizon, wails of Silt Stiders in the distance, some choice selections from Jeremy Soule's Morrowind score, "Outlander", even a familiar falling wizard...) Dawnguard was criticized for lack of new areas so Dragonborn delivers with an entire island (yes, we've been here before, during Bloodmoon) and heaps on some Lovecraftian influences... do I need to add you can ride dragons? Another great example from Bethesda of what DLC should be (an expansion, not an hour long mission). Full Review »
