The Stone Prisoner lacks content. All you get is 1 new companion, 1 new area on the map and a couple quests that are simple to complete, and not very interesting either.

Shale, your new Golem companion, is sweet. He is strong and powerful, and you will feel a heck of a lot better with him at your side in any fight! The quest to get him involves visiting a small town and investigating a wizard’s folly, and a fairly bland history of what transpired involving the golem and his former master. After that, the only quest is to discover Shale’s heritage, and is intertwined with the main quest line. So really, this pack only adds something new of the old path and not really different path to explore.

You also get a few new items, but nothing really of note. 4 points because Shale is an awesome character. 1 point for the new quests and items.



This pack adds two new achievements which should be simple to get. However, the Rock and A Hard Place achievement was/is bugged. The achievement will show that it is unlocked on your list on Xbox, but the points won’t add to your gamer score and your X number of X achievements will always be 1 short. Although a patch was released to fix this, mine is still bugged, and EA Customer Support says this is a game play issue and will not help you. Many others also are still bugged after the patch was released and have yet to be fixed.


Is it worth the price-tag?

NO! 1200 MS points or $15 is ridiculous for what this adds to the game. Users who bought the game brand new near the launch date got this for free in the box (at least on Xbox, unsure of other platforms) so we all dodged a bullet. Unless you are a diehard fan of this game (like me) with money to burn (unlike me and 95% of the population) I suggest you avoid this DLC.


Overall = 9/20*5 = 45 /100

Closing Comments: This game lacks the C in DLC (that’s content, for you people who aren’t good with acronyms) and is overall a waste of money. If you got the game brand new and this came free, I’m sure you will agree that you would have been heart-broken if you actually paid for it.

The Stone Prisoner DLC adds Shale, to the cast of characters you can take with you on your travels. My only dissapointment with this DLC is the length of the quest to get Shale is not very long, and I believe it should have been priced lower (unless you got it for free with a new copy of the game). But besides that Shale is very much worth it. He is customizable in the fact that you can change what type of damage/armor he has with crystals, which are in place of his armor and weapons. He is also very powerful, but a little slow, he delivers hits over 100 and sometimes 200 damage often and I've had him do 295 before. This DLC is very much worth it and I reccomend it to all Dragon Age fans, if you didn't enjoy Dragon Age don't get this, it's not that large of an addition and will most likely not change your opinion on this game. 4/5 Stars.
