For a very small 400 MSP

*Contains Spoilers*

Well where to begin really besides saying it is was a massive disappointment in general from a storyline perspective, apart from being the ogre character which was very fun for a short period of time, the DLC was overall quite poor in my opinion.

Hardly any storyline to it and besides being told what to do.. hardly anything useful/ anything gained for my real character, besides a nice 75G on my gamercard for getting all of the achievements and 75G towards the completion of one of the best RPGs ever created.

The Idea/Story Type Thing of this DLC:

Starting from the same point as the assault on Denerim in the original game and working through towards the final onslaught to aid the arch demon and killing your party members from your old save for a bit of revenge for how much of a pain all the romance achievements were to get made it the only good reason to play the DLC, a lot of the cut scenes from Origins were used, the quests weren't very involved and didn't actually take that long to complete, discounting the Enthralling achievement which was a tad boring a maximum 2 hours really to complete all of the DLC was very dismal.

What Should and Could of Been in the DLC:

The fact that no levelling system existed made it boring and There should of been a different set of specializations for the thralls and not even really showed what DA: O is kind of about. I think more cutscenes should have been added to improve the quality of the DLC and make it more interesting and worth the 400 MSP I payed for it, despite the lack of what darkspawn could really do in general besides kill people and burn stuff.


Overall this DLC sucks, I mean this DLC was very short, quite like Return to Ostagar (I think RtO was a lot more fun) and the achievements in Darkspawn Chronicles were very easy to do and Darkspawn Chronicles could have been made better and you know it could and should of been better.

Price - I'll start off by saying Darkspawn Chronicles is cheap. It's only 400 MSP, but it could have been cheaper considering it is a mission you already played in the main game.

Gameplay - The mission in Darkspawn Chronicles is almost pointless. First of all, it only lasts about 45 minutes. The base of it is the last mission in the game, and you just play as the darkspawn. If you are a fan of the storyline in Dragon Age, you will be very disappointed. You may be asking yourself at the end, "Why did they even give me the option to finish the game this?"

Lasting Appeal - Darkspawn Chronicles has literally no replay value, because you don't have options to do things differently, like in the main game. You also do not unlock anything for your main character, which is disappointing.

Gamerscore - The 75 points you can unlock are pretty nice, considering the DLC takes little over 30 minutes. It really is the only reason anyone should buy it.

Price - 8/10
Gameplay - 2/10
Lasting Appeal - 0/10
Gamerscore - 9/10

Overall (not an average) - 2/10
