    This is a neat little expansion, well formed and surprisingly well-paced; if you enjoyed the main game, it's definitely worth a download.

    The best Dragon Age expansion to date. [Christmas 2011, p.110]

    For the completist, Mark of the Assassin offers 5 achievements, over 20 Codex entries, 19 Quests including optional ones and sizeable experience points. It all adds up to a viable package, a decent running time and value for money at last. If this is the shape of downloadable content to come for Dragon Age II, then there's life in the game for sometime yet.

    BioWare has listened to the feedback of its fans and brought us the Mark of the Assassin downloadable content. Fortunately this piece of extra content offers enough variety to keep it fresh. You will also find a great new member for your team, Tallis, who is voiced by femme fatale Felicia Day. Tallis is a great and welcome addition and it's a shame you can't keep her after you've finished this DLC.

    Quite enjoyed it. If only the whole game had been like this short DLC. It shows that they could have expanded more on the Qunari story-line and the focus could have been on that rather than Templar versus Mage story-line which I found tot be quite bland. Worth the purchase, good humor and has a lot more to offer than the Legacy DLC. Only downside is that Tallis is not a new companion. Expand

    Mark of The Assassin offers a unique adventure full of humor, hijinks, and a lot of the same ol' Dragon Age II formula. The combat won't really offer anything out of the ordinary, except of course the new companion Tallis's unique techniques. The plot is interesting and really shows a lot more of the Dragon Age universe and a much deeper look into the Qunari religion than we have ever seen before. There is an "action stealth" sequence which is VERY RPG-styled. I have heard complaints about this, but I liked it, DAII is an RPG after all. All in all it's nothing spectacular, but it is a nice little extra bit of story. The only complaint I have is that the load times are ridiculous! Expand
