Oct 7, 2010The Good: Finn and Ariane, the new companions who join the Warden on this adventure, are interesting and amusing. Their dialogue is the highlight of this DLC.
The Meh: Combat is boring and unchallenging; the sole new creature comes from the development of DA2. Areas are all reused from Origins and Awakening. This gives the whole experience an air of the tired and predictable. It really doesn't feel like a lot of effort was put into the DLC.
The Bad: It is extremely short. Also, for a DLC that was billed to be about Morrigan, and offered the chance to resolve the Warden's situation with her and gain answers, it failed woefully. On release, it was bugged so as not to recognise all the decisions the Warden made at the end of Origins (so Morrigan would react as if your actions had been different to what you actually did, in many cases). The bug has since been fixed, however. Only a tiny proportion of the game's already minuscule play length were spent with Morrigan at the end, and they were very unsatisfying to my (female) Warden, providing no closure whatsoever.

Everyone else, can give it a miss.… Full Review »
