Decent enough addon but not necessary

Hearthfire lets you build your own house from one of three lots, lets you find materials to build your house and adds the ability to adopt children into your family. It's fun enough albeit a bit buggy sometimes but I can't help but wonder if this DLC was made to capitalize on the user made mod scene for Skyrim. Nevertheless if you have money to spare, pick this up. I wouldn't say it's essential however.

Adds a lot of content for the price!

Hearthfire is a relatively small DLC compared to Dawnguard or the new Dragonborn DLC packages, however it doesn’t fail to deliver. It adds a good load of new features to the game, and at a very good price too! - I’ve seen a few complaints about this, like “it doesn’t live up to expectations” etc. But I honestly don’t see what people are on about.

It adds a lot of content for the price, you can choose one of three plots, all of which are quite different, which is certainly a good thing, and you can gather all the resources you need to construct your new house! - From door hinges, to window frames, it’s all needed. Then once you have them all, you can build your house, room by room, just as you want it.

You are also to do other things, such as move your spouse in, and adopt children. It’s only a minor part, but some may want to do that. - It’s certainly a great little add-on for the price, and well worth getting if you are fed up with all the pre-set houses around Skyrim.

A Good Addition.

Hearthfire adds enough interest to Skyrim through it's house building and adoption mechanics to definitely make it worth it's price tag. With the enjoyable time building your house from the ground up and finding materials and then adopting children to create a family this addition has added hours of enjoyable playtime to Skyrim. Overall i would say this is a required purchase for those looking to expand Skyrim.
