    Obsidian Entertainment have managed to have the ante upped, and I feel the entire story told throughout Parts One and Two place The White March on a higher pedestal than most expansions, especially these days. This DLC is more than worth the asking price.

    The original Pillars of Eternity earned much deserved high praise when it was released. The White March – Part II keeps those elements that made the game such a success, but also tweaks some of the areas needing improvement.

    The improvements and the conclusion of the White March expansion are so impressive that the realization we have to wait and pray for PoE2 is depressing.

    The White March's second half salvages the slow pacing of the first and ultimately redeems Pillars of Eternity's expansion.

    The White March - Part 2 has epic battles and a great storyline, just like Pillars of Eternity.

    Too much emphasis on battles and too tight a focus on the main story--as interesting as it can be at times, especially if you’re interested in the mythology of Eora--makes the game something of a forced march that removes the wonder of exploring an open world.

    White March Part 2 is excellent, simply put. The story/atmosphere are really on point for this one. The only criticisms that can be leveledWhite March Part 2 is excellent, simply put. The story/atmosphere are really on point for this one. The only criticisms that can be leveled against it are length and linearity, it's a bit short (and by that I mean still longer than a modern AAA shooter's main campaign) and it's a bit less about exploring open maps.

    By the way, what another reviewer pointed out is correct, the user score was sitting pretty at 9.5+ consistently then over night dropped to around where it is now. Very suspicious, no? Play this expansion for yourself, and see if it deserves a red review, let alone 24 of them...

    The pacing of the game is fitting for a story climax. The graphics are great, the gameplay continues to expand in terms of depth.

    Comes with a complete revision (balance) of the core game; we can say it is now an "Enhanced Edition".
    Inevitable bugs contained within will certainly be dealt with as it was the case with previous updates/game rules tweakings.

    It has come a long way, and the game is now very, very, very enjoyable.
    This is the good direction for cRPGs to go, and I am thankful for this gem.
    Two thumbs up!

Obsidian has done some of the best expansion packs and DLC in the past (Mask Of The Betrayer, Old World Blues,etc..), so this doesn't come as a huge surprise.

    Excellent sequel to White March 1 with more Maps. Quest and Bounties. As in WM1, the overall quality is even better than the main game! 10-20 hrs

Visually I liked it, sound was fine and the party system was fine. Quests and story? Fine. What's wrong with it?

    Minus a few points for very poor encounter design & planning in certain locations.
    Minus a zillion points for there *still* being serious bugs (e.g. entire character inventory disappears).
