    It's fresh Skyrim and a lot of it, which is obviously good. On the other hand, the wonky design of the Vampire Lord undermines what should be the standout idea, and so there's a strong whiff of disappointment also present in Dawnguard. [Issue#229, p.72]

    A good new add on to possibly the greatest RPG game of the century - but with its flaws.

    I enjoyed the DLC, but found it VERY buggy for a while, and even had to restart my user. The vampirism really doesn't have many perks, and having vampires randomly kill NPCs in the town really put me off the DLC, but many sidequests like the Arkngthamz and others make it worth it.

    Though it is beyond being as much a great DLC as Dragonborn, its a worthy addition, and good time.
