    A whole lot more content, all wrapped up in one of Dragon Age’s most impressive zones.

    An expansion pack that will satisfy the fans that were waiting to return to Thedas. An interesting and beautiful DLC that falls too similar to the main game.

    While there’s a real charm to the DLC thanks to its gorgeous environments and a light tone backed by intensely challenging combat, I hope the next installment offers an ever-so-slightly chunkier hunk of flesh to sink my teeth into.

    While Jaws of Hakkon is neither revolutionary or ultimately necessary, it is gorgeous and offers 6-8 hours of gameplay for the price of a solo trip to the movies. The new end-game content fits nicely into the fold, even if it offers very little deviation from the well-established formula.

    Entirely inessential and lacking in any genuinely new ideas, but if all you want is more Dragon Age: Inquisition this download is unlikely to disappoint.

It features a newThe biggest flaw is that it's just a side story, but it's a good one, and if you liked the main game, you should like this. It features a new area, new (really good) weapons and crafting materials, new Inquisitor ability that I wish I had for the main story, a handful of War Table missions (worth A LOT of influence for some reason) and a pretty challenging level of difficulty. If you did everything as you went in the main game, you probably know how easy the game gets before you even reach the halfway mark. I'm happy to report I died in this DLC quite a bit, with my Inquisitor entering it at lvl 24, I think.

    The area, Frostback Basin, is of the same quality as the other areas of the game, as densely packed with stuff to do and nooks to explore, and maybe a little smaller than The Hinterlands. The story is interesting enough and adds to the greater Dragon Age lore. I appreciated the fact that it fit seamlessly into the post-game, even though you can play it beforehand. Dialogue was adjusted to compensate for the fact that I had defeated Corypheus and the Inquisition was sort of in clean-up mode. Completing EVERYTHING the DLC had to offer took me perhaps 10 hours, and I'm a pretty thorough explorer. It felt good returning to Thedas, I'll admit.

    It's a DLC, how on earth can you possibly expect a completely new gaming experience from just a simple DLC? The truth is, you can't. Or betterIt's a DLC, how on earth can you possibly expect a completely new gaming experience from just a simple DLC? The truth is, you can't. Or better said, you shouldn't. Why? Well, because it'a DLC (an ADD-ON) and once you realize that, you will understand that Jaws Of Hakkon does exactly what any good DLC should do, and that is delivery an interesting side story featuring the same gameplay as the ORIGINAl game you purchased only with added inventory and fresh NPC's. That is what a DLC is. If you're looking for an entirely new gaming experience, than go buy another game! Any who, I digress. Here's the deal, Jaws of Hakkon is good, not great, but a DLC worth purchasing if you enjoyed playing DA: Inquisition. The new environment is easily the most intriguing in the game, the visuals are beautiful and the environment glows with exotic atmosphere. Unfortunately, in terms of armor, weapons and NPC, you aren't really getting much. The armory is simply a refined version of the story mode items, and the NPC's aren't too interesting. While the story is somewhat rich (Yes, you are fighting more dragons), a lot of the enemies are simply just slight re-skins of the ones you faced in the main game. Regardless, it's a fun add-on and definitely worth the purchase. Expand

    Compared to the value of the original game Jaws of Hakkon just doesn't feel like it has much to it. You do gain a new area to explore, butCompared to the value of the original game Jaws of Hakkon just doesn't feel like it has much to it. You do gain a new area to explore, but the lack of real story telling and the feeling that what your doing doesn't have much impact hurts the DLC.

    If the DLC was about half the price it was released at the value might be for fitting.

    Une nouvelle région à explorer pour ce DLC et à cet égard, c’est certainement réussi… il faut en effet tout explorer de fond en comble afinUne nouvelle région à explorer pour ce DLC et à cet égard, c’est certainement réussi… il faut en effet tout explorer de fond en comble afin d’éventuellement pouvoir finir et conclure ce qui tient lieu de quête principale, car aucun indice ne vient vous guider. Il faut dire que la nouvelle « histoire » (entre guillemets) proposée ici est particulièrement avare en cinématiques et/ou dialogues.

    On farme donc tout ce qu’on peut farmer sur la carte et on explore chaque recoin jusqu’à ce que la quête principale se mette en branle et se termine -finalement- assez vite. Mais après avoir bien farmé la carte (sauf les putains de failles, là c’est trop….) on a facilement passé une dizaine d’heures, ce qui nous fait un fort bon rapport heures/prix.

    Nonobstant ce fedex et ce remplissage très caractéristique du jeu d’origine (toutes les régions étaient logées à la même triste enseigne en la matière !) on se surprend à tout retourner (ou presque) dans cet environnement inédit, très vertical et assurément très beau (la fameuse patte artistique de Bioware est encore bien présente !).

    Il faut préciser à toutes fins utiles que DAI est passé en « FPS Boost » sur Series X et qu’on peut l’apprécier désormais à 60 im/s, ce qui rend du coup ce DLC bien plus plaisant, ma foi… Il n’empêche que « les Crocs d’Hakkon » demeure bâclé et très répétitif, sans aucun des enjeux marquants qui nous poussaient sans cesse dans le jeu principal.

    This is everything a paid DLC should NOT be. What it offers us is one new zone, that is really no more interesting than the zones currently inThis is everything a paid DLC should NOT be. What it offers us is one new zone, that is really no more interesting than the zones currently in the game. And actually less so, because at least the zones that came with the game were integrated with the main plot. In the past BioWare DLCs and expansions have had *higher* quality maps, a tighter story, more character interaction, and so on than the originally packaged game. Jaws of Hakkon was more like, hey, you threw down $60 for this game that you've already burned through, why not throw down another $15 to keep playing a few more hours? The most depressing thing to me is that if BioWare can sell this junk for as much as they've ever charged for DLC, can we really expect them to make a real story-centered expansion later? Expand
