What happened to the dragons

Sceyef | Aug. 11, 2015 | See all Sceyef's reviews »

One of the main selling points for this DLC is that you can finally ride a dragon. Yes, you ride a dragon, but it just feels like a 1 time show. You don't really control it, so it's basically worthless... The new quests have a better storyline that usual so it isn't all that bad. Love the theme on the characters.

A really good piece of DLC with a lot of content

Murderbot735 | July 28, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »

This feels more like an expansion than traditional DLC. The island it adds - Solstheim - is really big, and not like Skyrim at all. The flora and fauna is completely different, and the environment mainly consists of ash-covered wasteland. There's many different quests to be found, and it's so rich on content. There's also strange books that can be found and they teleport you to really interesting weird locations. The house you get is also great. The biggest disappointment is the dragon flying. You don't directly control it, and can't fly anywhere. You just tell it what to do and it's pretty boring. This is DLC done right, and if you like Skyrim and doesn't already own this, then get it.

Great Quests, Disappointing Dragonz

You get to travel all the way to Morrowind for brand new quests, monsters, shouts, equipment, and characters. This is more of an expansion than a DLC. It's not a new mission, it's a huge bundle of quests, items, and the like. Dragonborn is a misleading title however. You do get to ride on dragons, but there's no combat and minimal control. It's basically a boring theme park rise. Overall, it's a great expansion, just don't expect epic dragon action from it.

A Blast from the Past

tv_ | March 12, 2015 | See all tv_'s reviews »

Dragonborn is a strange title for the DLC, but it's actually a great addition. Without spoiling anything, you travel to Solstheim, a relatively small island featured also in Morrowind...and it shows. If you played Morrowind you can easily relate to the setting and feel nostalgic. Story wise, the DLC fits very well into the game. You aren't the only Dragonborn and thank goodness for that. You don't feel special anymore but now you get to test your skills against someone armed with the same skills as you. If you play this on the hardest difficulty, you will enjoy it a bit more because it actually feels like you are being tested. Overall, this is a great DLC with loads of additions to the game--plus opens up a lot of new mods for PC players.

The Battle of Dragonborns

luxcaeruleus | July 27, 2014 | See all luxcaeruleus's reviews »

The last addition to Skyrim. Dragonborn introduces new features to the game. It's story revolves around Miraak, the first ever Dragonborn.which is trying to take over the land. There would be new spells, loots, thuums, and a whole new land to explore. The greatest thing about this DLC is Dragon Riding. That's right, you could ride dragons that you encounter while exploring. Burn them down with your pet Dragons fire breath and see how fun it is. I highly recommend to have this DLC.

Best DLC for Skyrin

crazyman64335 | July 18, 2014 | See all crazyman64335's reviews »

Skyrim was a fantastic game however the DLC's were rather lacking. This one is the obvious standout of the DLC trio that was released for the game. It adds the most content, has the largest area to explore and feels similar to the other amazing dlc that bethesda has popped out for the Fallout series. If you are only able to pick up 1 dlc for skyrim, it should be this one.

First DLC I really liked

CARLEST | July 2, 2014 | See all CARLEST's reviews »

This DLC is a true masterpiece. It allows you to go to Solstheim, a part of Morrowind. Your main quest is to defeat Miraak who is also known as "The True Dragonborn". Your adventure there is creepy, hard, long and awesome. The main quest of the DLC may be awesome but most important, it is really different from the original Skyrim. I enjoyed those big mushroom houses so much that I visited them many times during the gameplay. There is also a new ore to main, the "Hearthstone". It s needed to cast some spells and finish some quests. Guards wear cool armours and their voice is different. There are some weird, creepy and cool creatures from Morrowind! It is just perfect DLC in my opinion and I recommend this to anyone, even to my enemy. Buy it and play!

The First, and the Last Ushering a New Age

Khrada | Dec. 6, 2013 | See all Khrada's reviews »

This is the final chapter Bethesda has provided us to further the deeds our Dragonborn hero (or villain) can do. Overall, the DLC is great and it has a lot of contents added to further your adventure. Pros: - New land with decent size. - New armor and weapons, which widens the choice of your arsenal. - Toy your enemies with new shiny (and ashy) magics, and to demonstrate your power as a Dragonborn with new shouts. - Apocrypha, the Plane of Oblivion introduced in this DLC provided a lot of new ways dungeon interacts with the player. - Morrowind soundtrack and revisit the island of Solstheim! Cons: - Feels too short. This is a big longer than Dawnguard, but it still feels short consider the 19.99 USD price tag. - Dragon riding is a huge let down. The player cannot control their dragon's direction, and the only way to move out of the area is fast travel. - Solstheim is a bit too small, it is very easy to wipe the island clean of revers, and never to see them again because of you traveling back and forth on the island so it never resets. It is not perfect, but the DLC is solid enough for any Skyrim players to buy it.
