  1. Suffice to say, feeble half-baked offerings like this are a step in the wrong direction. Hopefully Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening will do a much better job next month.
  2. The loot isn't game-changing, the plot is bare-bones, and the story-building basically nonexistent. Unless you absolutely need to possess Cailan's sweet golden shoulderpads, stop your plans to Return to Ostagar and turn straight back.

This is not a standalone campaign or expansion, this is simply a short and cheap add on quest with a few unlockable items. Standard issue dlc.

    While Return to Ostagar is indeed very short, lasting at most half an hour if truth be told, it does add some new dialogue for every While Return to Ostagar is indeed very short, lasting at most half an hour if truth be told, it does add some new dialogue for every companion and contains some reasonable loot. It cannot compare to either of the two previously released DLCs but is still worth it for any fan wanting a little bit of extra content, especially at the very low price. Full Review »
