Average User Score: 6.5Oct 29, 2013Just a great game! I'm not a "high fantasy" type, but had no trouble enjoying this world. Combat is the main pleasure here as it may well be the best seen in this genre. The world is huge and enjoyable to explore. If you a lore junkie you will certainly get your fix here! Controls are tight and very few bugs, certainly no game breakers. Tons of loot to find/craft/buy. Good size skill trees to develop a unique character. Why is this not rated higher here I can't say, except for the usual complaint "generic fantasy", boring side quests, no name characters etc. which IMO most if not all huge rpg's suffer from to some extent due to their sheer size. Anyway a very solid fun game worth a look. A damn shame there will likely never be a proper sequel which this game definitely deserves!… Expand
Average User Score: 5.9Jan 18, 2013Almost completed it. Basically if you dig the past DLC's this one is worth playing. Is it better? Nope. It's fairly short, the characters and humor aren't as good as past entries. Still it's fun while it lasts. That being said, some things you should know. As others have stated previously, this DLC is difficult. I'd say be at level 35 at least before heading in. I can see some people rage quitting after being killed by a witch doctor for the umpteenth time. On the positive side to that I found I used the rocket launcher and shotgun a TON more than any other previous entry which was kinda "new" for me. Also used "slag" weaponry/grenades ALOT more. Another irksome thing was having completed a side quest having to go through waves of re-spawned enemies in an already cleared area just to complete it! It didn't bother me alot but others may find it unacceptable.
Aergus itself is a tad barren with not a ton of different areas//buildings to check out, but again not that big a deal for me.
Loot drops are pretty consistent with other entries.
I played this in TVH mode starting at level 38, so the "normal" mode may differ a bit but probably not much.
All in all a decent DLC worth a go, but I feel is better suited to more hardcore players. Casual fans may pass and shouldn't feel like they missed much.
Did I mention to have a rocket launcher and grenades fully stocked at all times?… Expand
