My opinion of Dawnguard

pcgfng | Aug. 31, 2012 | See all pcgfng's reviews »

The Dawnguard dlc will give you around a dozen hours of gameplay depending on your play style & if you're mainly focusing on the main story, which Skyrim players will already know can be quite tricky when you get distracted with side quests.

I have only played as the vampires in this dlc & don't plan on playing as the Dawnguard yet for various reasons. The story is not original & the dlc doesn't offer anything significant to keep you playing if you've already completed the main story, major side quests & the dlc. However, if you want to get back into Skyrim after taking a break from it then Dawnguard is not a bad choice, though the current price £13.99 I don't agree with (I paid £10.50 I think after using credit & discount codes).

I should also point out that I bought this a few weeks after it's release due to users on Steam forums stating that the dlc is unstable/buggy or has affected the game itself that Skyrim doesn't work, I didn't have any major or noticeable problems, but do back up your saves just in case.

A great new adventure!

Assuming that you have already played and enjoyed the main game you WILL enjoy this. I personally have done every guild mission and main mission and a lot of the random side missions but I was starting to get a little bored of not having a 'purpose' in the game. This DLC however added quite a few hours of enjoyable game play and in my opinion is well worth it. Doesn't build on the original game but adds some well needed hours to it. I bought it for £14 elsewhere however with the 20% off codes commonly available here it's well worth getting here.

Let me preface this by saying that I personaly derived a great deal of enjoyment from Dawnguard. It has a bunch of cool new weapons and shouts, and has a plot good enough to keep you going. However, if you were beginning to fatigue of Skyrim, this DLC isn't gonna do anything so substantially different as to necessarily change that. It adds many nice things, but nothing revolutionary.
