Pretty much a must play if you have any interest in the Dragon Age lore. Corypheus is one of the *original* Tevinter Magisters that entered the Golden City, and one of the very first darkspawn. Apparently the Golden City was already tainted when the magisters entered.
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.
This DLC is for those who're dedicated to the Dragon Age brand and that's about it. This short addition does a little to flesh out the Hawke story, but doesn't have the impressive scale that some previous Bioware DLC had.
A great addition to Dragon Age 2. If you like me play on nightmare, don't use cheats to make your game easier and you use a save that's not with a top-geared character it will take you 6+ hours. The story is nice and most of the fights seem refreshing, not to mention the bosses. The ending boss is a little too techical so in other words easy, but there is also another HIDDEN boss who is quite fun. All the companions talk which is a first for a Bioware DLC allthough the items you get are a little sub-par ( something i don't care about) Best Bioware DLC to date, better even then Shadow Broker and i like ME2 more then DA2
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.
Well disappointed. Especially since the folks on Bioware Social Network raved about it. I must of forgot I was listening to biased fans in denial about a mediocre game and now a DLC to go with it! Anyway 800 points for little over two hours play. I just bought Old World Blues for New Vegas for the same price tag and got almost 8 hours. Ok maybe its a bit unfair to compare two different games like that. However for gimmick weapons and enemies that should have been included in the main game makes me feel disappointed. Bioware did take note from some feedback from DA2 very negative opening. No longer are we seeing rehashed environments and some thought looks like its been put into it. Its everything DA2 should have been on release. So why such a low scored review. Well the DLC doesnt redeem the game. As said its what DA2 should have been on release and the flaws of that should have been made into this DLC to make it good. You can tell a lot of it is cut content, or should I say unfinished content that never made the launch. Massive flaws are still apparent and other then for lore and a couple of new swords the DLC isn't that great. It was nice to see they put in effort of bringing back each voice actor. But all they get is a couple of extra unique lines. An Improvement no doubt. But still a mediocre DLC for a very mediocre game!!
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!
