This is my first review and I will keep it short, just like this dlc was.

I was SO looking forward to this dlc. To find out what happened to Morrigan was a great, thought-provoking question. Sadly, this dlc, like so many others by Bioware largely disappoints.

First off, there are two newly added party members with one being the typically annoying mage-themed character that permeates Dragon Age:Origins. The second is a Dalish Elf dual wielding fighter who is ok. The third is an original member which I won't spoil.

Overall, the story is rather bland. You must find a shard from a mirror and light some "lamps" in an old Dwarven Thaig. The side-story that involves elves seeking refuge in said thaig is rather interesting. After completing these two plot quests, it's on to find Morrigan through the Dragon bone yard. You do fight an all new boss which is pretty cool. Defeating this boss on the harder difficulties nets you a separate achievement. After defeating the boss you finally face Morrigan. Depending on how you ended your original Dragon Age: Origins story, Morrigan will have different things to say to you. I ended my playthrough of Witch Hunt going with Morrigan. Sadly, you FIND ABSOLUTELY NO ANSWERS IN THIS DLC. It's very disappointing imo.

The thaig area is slightly re-made with some nice water effects. The rest of the environments however, are the same cookie-cutter looking environments you've already run through multiple times in Origins. The same goes for the enemy types. Most are repeats except for the final boss.

The achievements are rather simple. Two are story-driven, one is unlocked by collecting and the other is unlocked by defeating the final boss on a harder mode.

In conclusion, if you think you are going to find out any answers from Morrigan by playing this dlc, you are going to be disappointed. The dlc took me just under 2 hrs which is a sad par for Bioware DA:O dlc. In my opinion, this dlc is below average, like much of Bioware's dlc for this game...

In a nut shell theres 3 things to consider.

Story wise.
This DLC adds very little to what you know already from Origins. I just spent 100 odd hours playing origins, awakening and all the other DLC's leaving this till last, only to discover there isn't even an epilogue. Even the storyline of the companions here is essentially unfinished.The game literally ends and credits roll. So if your looking for answers you wont like this at all.

Easy 100gs. 3 of the 4 are unmissable and the 4th requires you to find 4 items. They are hard to miss unless you simply run to the end of the level ignoring everything. Still 100gs in a little over an hour is all right.

What's new?
Essentially 2 companions and some weapons / items etc. Though I believe some of this would carry over to new games if you import your character. No use if you left this DLC till last unless you intend to run through the game again. The areas to explore are both small and taken from the main story and DLC. some changes made to lighting etc i think but thats essentially it.

In Summary i would say save your points. If you have the ultimate edition of the game it makes no difference to you but if you dont i would suggest borrowing or renting the ultimate edition as it will save you some cash in the long run as this is saddly not the only DLC to dissapoint in the series.
