    A surprisingly detailed add-in for this controversially received sequel. New approaches to encounter design and smarter enemies stand out, although story remains a strong feature.

    You never know what to expect from Bioware when they create a new DLC. Sometimes they are decent, more often not. Legacy and Mark of the Assassin are pleasant surprises in the continuum. The adventures are well written, Tallis is a compelling new character and the combat is challenging enough. The add-ons are solid work, but not extraordinary by any means. [Nov 2011]

    Dragon Age II: Legacy is a really good DLC. Desipte a strong focus on fighting it should interest all the players, who found the story and main character of the original game interesting. There are many little details like differences in conversations depending on the moment of your adventure's beginning.

    Short, linear and overpriced – but a huge improvement over the Dragon Age: Origins DLCs nevertheless. [Sept 2011, p.69]

    Unless you're a completionist, I see little need to spend your precious sovereign on this one.

    The shrugworthy Legacy add-on extends Dragon Age II but doesn't improve upon it.

    It spawns enemies behind your back, fails to improve lame AI and contains a range of bugs (e.g. enemies hitting you through a closed gate). BioWare failed to convince me that they are capable of learning from their mistakes. [Sept 2011, p.65]

What i especially like was the multi level nature of the prison you explore in the game. It really gave a good sense of scale and exploration that was lacking in many parts of DA2. I also liked and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of companion dialogue in this DLC. One think I really have not liked about most prior DLC in Origins was that are given new companions that you don't care about or your companion characters are silent. In this pack there is a fair amount of dialogue from companions you have in the actual game. Also good was that there were several side quests in the DLC. Overall a good three to four hour experience. Expand

The DLC features a brandSo I'm happy to report that Legacy has - thankfully - avoided the two monumental design errors of its parent game. The DLC features a brand new area to explore outside of Kirkwall. Your adventure brings you to a Grey Warden prison in the Vimmark mountains, an area which turns out to be darkspawn-infested fortress. The dungeons - while not mindblowing - are a refreshing change of pace from exploring the carbon copy cutouts that were Dragon Age 2's map designs. The atmosphere is suitably sinister, and the DLC brings a healthy dose of interesting story content to boot. An ancient darkspawn is breaking free of its chains, and as you delve deeper into the depths of the prison, you uncover startling secrets concerning the nature of this threat. The story is engaging, and some endgame revelations are quite satisfying.

Really? a DLC for the 'fans'? or was it stuff that's already part of the game but chopped to pieces to nickel and dime the fanbois? A DLC for the so called 'game of the decade', smells entirely rotten to it's core. Such a shame a great franchise could be ruined by corporate greed. Expand

    I was amazed that people would give this crap dlc High SCORES. But reading the reviews i realised its just BIOWARE STAFF and Marketeers.I was amazed that people would give this crap dlc High SCORES. But reading the reviews i realised its just BIOWARE STAFF and Marketeers.

    Stories about making changes and listening to customers complaints are nonsense. They are charging 10 dollars for 1 to 2 hours of gameplay. Story is very thin and pointless. No interesting discussions or choices and no possibility to talk to your Companions. just a repeat of same old same old. The end boss i needed to restart ten times because of glitches in de AI of companions. All in all a lost opportunity and once again a big middlefinger from Bioware/ Laidlaw to their stupid customers. I was really hoping Bioware could set things straight but is not what happened. Avoid at all cost

    Just to equal that **** review of Merrill4Life. Everyone knows that DA2 was far from perfection and this is probably another fanboy. Just toJust to equal that **** review of Merrill4Life. Everyone knows that DA2 was far from perfection and this is probably another fanboy. Just to mention Witcher in the review is a proof that it's meant to boost the score of Legacy, nothing more.
