  2. If you enjoyed Dragon Age: Origins, this is must have expansion.

    There is plenty here to keep you occupied for at least 20 hours if you want to max everything out. Some may be a bit disappointed in the size by comparison, but for $40 this game is twice as long as most full-priced titles.
  4. Well worth the pricetag and, frankly, essential for fans of the original.
  5. Although your character has no voice, this game is really good, especially because of its great story, the nice fights and the system of free choice.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Higher ratio of fighting to story than in origins but it was a a great addition to the original. Took me about 23hours to beat which isn't bad for the $15 I paid for it. Full Review »

    I was happy with this purchase. It was well worth the $20. You can expect close to 20 hours of new gameplay. You get a new cast of characters (and one old). There's lots of loot, experience, and new locales to be had. This is the best of the bunch as far as DA DLC goes. Full Review »

    This is really a fantastic expansion pack that almost qualifies as a game on it's own. This is the kind of expansion that any gamer would want for any game. It's stays true the original formula it adds plenty of new ideas, character and locations. Really terrific new party members, a real shame they weren't given as much depth as the in DA: Origins, but that's only a minor quirk as they still did a great job all things considered. Overall: A MUST BUY for anyone who loved DA: Origins. Full Review »
