    Legacy seems to have taken quite a few cues from Dragon Age: Origins when it comes to interesting settings, characters, and plot details and thrown them in with the fast paced action of Dragon Age 2.

    Simply put, Legacy is a taste of what Dragon Age II's story could have been, and anything that is truly wrong with it is a result of spillage from the main game's faults. Legacy is a fine first DLC offering from Bioware, and hopefully a sign of things to come in Dragon Age III.

    For the price, it's not a bad addition, but as a fan of the game's narrative and someone who followed the 'press A until you're done' method of combat, there wasn't much for me. Fans of dungeons and battles will, of course, vary, so whether Legacy is worth your dollar depends very much on what parts of the game you enjoyed.

    Playtime vs. price is the major deterrent here, but if you miss your Dragon Age II and want something new, you'll likely enjoy your time exploring the Grey Wardens' prison, even if it's only for a brief moment.

    Legacy is full of good intentions, but the final presentation feels bland and rushed.

    Unless you're a completionist, I see little need to spend your precious sovereign on this one.

    A passable addition to the game, but one that doesn't do anything to make itself essential. Better than a lot of BioWare DLC packs, but nowhere near as satisfying as their best work.

    Legacy is a great addition, the new environments are refreshing, but they some are repeated. Hawkes Key is a good addition as well. However the last boss is a pain. Expand

    I thought Legacy was great. I mean, if you didn't like DA2, then your not going to like Legacy, as it's more of the same. But I loved DA2. I play on Nightmare difficulty, and it actually took me 7 hours to complete this dlc because the battles take so long on nightmare and because I did every sidequest. Legacy introduces some new enemies, develops the backstory of Hawke, Bethany, and Varric a little more, has an optional secret boss that is EXTREMELY difficult on the Nightmare difficulty, has a cool final boss, and has new weapons and armor. It if very linear in terms of the areas you explore, but that didn't bother me. Also, for those who were bothered by repeated environments in DA2, all environments in this new dlc are new. Expand

    Legacy includes some new enemies, 3 side-quests and a decent plot for the main quest. The DLC costs $10 for around 1-2 hours of gameplay. If you enjoyed Dragon Age II you might like this as well, but if you were disappointed with Dragon Age II than Legacy isn't for you. Expand

    I really believed Bioware when they said they listened to fan feedback but this almost excactly like playing da2. The only positive things are that there are more cutscenes and more party banter but I would have preferred at least some dialogue with the other party members but yet again there is none. It's loaded with badly made and ruined darkspawn and genlocks, they look awfull! A hack and slash action with a little story. Expand

    Sadly, The Dragon Age Saga, continues to be downsized into tiny little bits that truly are not worth the amount of money paid. Simply put this DLC should be $5.00, it is nowhere worth the $10.00 price. Legacy will take someone, who even looks into every corner about 1.5 hours. There are Some new enemies, that don't really stand out and are forgettable. The end Boss Battle, is also quite forgettable. Adding this to the Dragon Age Cannon, made me just remember and long for what I hoped Dragon Age 2 would be, instead of a Stripped down version. If you didn't mind the rushed feel of the full game, then you may want to pick this up as a Deal of the Week, but it in no way is worth $10.00. Very Forgettable! Expand

    Bioware has not learned it's lesson. Drop DA2, its a pathetic game. The storyline, again is garbage. It is obvious that Bioware will be putting out an inferior product from now on. Dragon Age 3 will not be an improvement if they do not start from scratch and drop all aspects of DA2. Is Bioware serious, the blood of Hawke. Who cares about Hawke. Talk about the worst main character in the bioware universe. Expand
